Staff Reviews

With a sly adjustment of a pin on a Pachinko table, the gambler's fate is changed. And so Min Jin Lee plays with the fates of her deeply felt characters as we follow them through generations in Korea, north and south, to Japan. Epic yet intimate, sweeping yet close to home.

“A father's gentle nature, a mother's sacrifice, a daughter's trust, and a son's determination are the cornerstones of this grand, multilayered saga. Pachinko follows one family through an ever-changing cultural landscape, from 1910 Korea to 1989 Japan. As the bonds of family are put to the test in the harsh realities of their world, Sunja and those she holds dear manage to carve themselves a place to call home with hard work, self sacrifice, and a little kimchi. Through it all is a message about love, faith, and the deep-rooted bonds of family. Min Jin Lee gives us a phenomenal story about one family's struggle that resonates with us today. It will take hold of you and not let go!”
