6 Korean Dramas to Watch Starring Pachinko's Lee Min-ho

Western audiences have been getting a crash course in Korean history thanks to Pachinko, Apple TV's ambitious period drama based on Min Jin Lee's bestselling novel of the same name that centers on one family and the multigenerational traumas endured from Japan's occupation of Korea. And for those not yet fully entrenched in the bountiful universe of K-dramas, the show has also familiarized viewers with one of South Korea's biggest stars. (Technically two if you count Youn Yuh-jung, though she has already established herself as a beloved Hollywood legend and needs no introduction.)

Pachinko's Soo Hugh and Lee Min-ho explain the joy behind that opening credits sequence

Pachinko episode one spoilers follow, but they're very minor. A young girl ventures through tall reeds that bend gently in the wind while dragonflies dance just out of reach. Sunja is so entranced, so in awe of the world around her, that she barely hears her father calling out her name. And when they do meet, it's clear that Hoonie shares the same childlike awe as his own daughter. Together, they giggle and smile as a dragonfly lands on his outstretched finger.
