In this post, know more about Apple TV’s K-drama ‘Pachinko’ starring Lee Min-ho gets Season 2 renewal.

Looks like the international success of the Lee Min-ho drama ‘Pachinko’ has helped the series bag a new season. The news comes right after Season 1 ended on April 29. The show featured Lee Min-ho playing a morally grey individual, who otherwise fits the South Korean ‘ideal rich guy’ character trope. The critically-acclaimed series became popular soon after its initial worldwide release on March 25. The eight-part drama released episodes, one-by-one, all through April 2022, leaving fans bereft after the final episode aired on April 29.

But, a day after the final broadcast, the makers of the ‘Pachinko’ told fans that a second season was on its way and will be out soon. Based on a 2015 American novel of the same name, the K-drama, ‘Pachinko’ warmly captures the action from the novel on a global scale. The story of the show begins with a tale of forbidden love between two ill-fated lovers, which draws on the unforgettable chronicles of the characters as they experience war, peace, love, parting, victory, and judgment.

As the characters travel back and forth between countries like South Korea, Japan, and the United States, the story caters to a wide range of audiences, cementing its global appeal and its subsequent success in both America and in Asian countries.
