Pachinko tells the story of a Korean family who immigrated to Japan during Japan’s occupation of a then-unified Korea and their participation in World War II. The plot begins in 1883, but most of the work takes place between 1910 and 1989.
Pachinko’s main appeal is Lee’s deft manipulation of various characters in this timeline. Sunja is the main character, and her trip to Japan amidst poverty reveals a deep hatred towards Koreans there.
