Overview About “Pachinko” by “Min Jin Lee”

Pachinko is a family saga that chronicles one Korean family’s struggle to find its place in Japan during a crucial moment in history. It is 1941, and Korea has been under Japanese rule for more than thirty years. Yet while many Koreans emigrated to Japan during colonial times, Hoonie—the middle son of an impoverished aristocratic family—was born on Japanese soil and raised as a member of an affluent Korean clan. As World War II spreads through Asia, Korea is occupied by Japan, forcing Hoonie and his cousin Sunja—daughter of his mother’s servant—to flee from their homes. Separated from his family, Hoonie joins thousands of other Koreans traveling across oceans for a new life in Nagasaki.
