Minha Kim makes a stunning debut in the US in the series Pachinko

Minha Kim remembers the moment she found out she landed the coveted role of Sunja in the AppleTV+ series Pachinko like it was yesterday. It was technically two years ago, but she got the call just before her birthday after a long and arduous four months of interviews and chemistry lectures. “Obviously it was my birthday present,” she said, smiling during a FaceTime call. But the funny thing is, Kim was surprisingly cool and composed when she got the career-changing news. “Aren’t you happy?!” the casting agent asked.

Looking back, Kim admits she was somewhat shocked about the whole thing. Yes, she was happy, but she almost mentally prepared herself not to get the part. The actress was still a relative newcomer to Korea when she was approached by a local casting agent about auditioning for the series. It would be a huge opportunity and her first American project. The series is an adaptation of Min Jin Lee’s best-selling 2017 novel Pachinko, a sweeping historical saga that is epic in scope—traveling through four generations of a 20th-century family in Korea, Japan and the US—but intimate in tone. It is a beautiful story of love, loss and triumph, centering on the trials and tribulations of the family matriarch, Sunja. After reading the first script, Kim bought the book and read it overnight.
