It was written and created by Soo Hugh (The Terror, The Killing), who served as showrunner. She commented:
They say there are those projects that come along and change the very core of who you are as a filmmaker and a person. Undoubtedly, Pachinko is that project for me. Not only is this a story of my forebears, it’s my tribute to them — to all of the Sunjas buried deep in all of our family’s history. It’s been an incredible honor to bring this series to life with this dedicated and gifted cast and crew.
We first heard about this series back in 2018, so it’s been a long time coming!
