The cast & crew of the Korean/Japanese American drama Pachinko, based off a book by author Min Jin Lee, filmed in Vancouver back during the early days of filming in the pandemic. Despite the many limitations in place because of the rules put in place to film at this time, they managed to finish their project on time.
The series stars
- Academy Award winner Youn Yuh-Jung/ 윤여정 as Sunja
- Kim Min-Ha / 김민하 as teenage Sunja
- Lee Min-Ho/ 이민호 as Koh Hansu
- Jin Ha as Solomon Baek
- Anna Sawai as Naomi.
- Soj Arai as Baek Mozasu
- Kaho Minami as Etsuko
- Jung Eun-Chae as Kyunghee
- Jimmy Simpson as Tom Andrews
It was directed by former Twilight cast member Justin Chon. It will be distributed on Apple tv.
I caught up to their productions a couple times, but unfortunately, I saw very little of the actual filming, as much of it was inside a shipyard in Steveston. This was of course where Lee did several days of filming, and drew large crowds almost daily.
I did see 1 scene get filmed on another night with 2 other actors (I am not familiar with who is playing which characters. Feel free to let me know & I can credit them accordingly) of two actors departing a train station with limited bags.
I dont know which episodes they might be from, so you might not see them till the final episode, or they could be in the first episode.
Below are some of my photos from those days. Along with a few from a guest photographer who allowed me use of a few of his photos of Lee that were notably better than what I had got on those days.
The series premieres on Apple TV March 25, 2022.
