For Minha Kim, Pachinko Is Just the Beginning
Minha Kim was surprised, quite frankly, when she learned she landed the lead role in the Apple TV+ series Pachinko—a role that would ultimately change her life. Kim was out to dinner in Seoul with a casting director and assumed the meal was to celebrate her upcoming birthday. “We were just chatting, and then suddenly she ordered Champagne and told me that I got the role,” says Kim. “I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ It was a real surprise party.”
