The filming for the second season of the Apple TV+ Series, Pachinko, which is currently in pre-production has been officially delayed for three weeks. The reason behind the delay is not known, but one of the reasons could be the current weather condition as it is around -10°C at the filming location.
The production was scheduled to begin this Monday (January 9) in Mississauga, Toronto, ON, Canada, which has been delayed for three weeks. Now, Pachinko Season 2 will begin filming on February 1, 2023, and wrap on April 21, 2023. Earlier, the Toronto filming was scheduled to wrap on March 27. This is likely to cause a delay in the start of the second part of the shoot, which will now take place in Busan, Korea instead of Japan. The first season was filmed in Vancouver and Korea.
Earlier we revealed the second part of the shoot will begin immediately in Japan after filming is done in Toronto. Now the filming is likely to start by the end of April in Busan, South Korea to finish by the end of June 2023. Leanne Welham is attached to direct four episodes of the second season.
“Pachinko” depicts the hopes and dreams of a Korean immigrant family through four generations as they leave their nation in an indomitable struggle to live and thrive. Beginning in early 1900s South Korea, the story is recounted through the eyes of a heroic matriarch, Sunja, who succeeds despite all odds. The first season of Pachinko premiered on Apple TV+ on March 25 of this year and was renewed a month later for a second season.
The series stars Yuh-Jung Youn as older Sunja, Lee Minho as Hansu, Jin Ha as Solomon, Anna Sawai as Naomi, Minha Kim as teenage Sunja, Eunchae Jung as young Kyunghee, Junwoo Han as Yoseb, Inji Jeong as Yangjin, Jimmi Simpson as Tom Andrews, Kaho Minami as Etsuko, Steve Sanghyun Noh as Isak, Soji Arai as Mozasu, and Yuna as young Sunja.
“Pachinko” is written and executive produced by Soo Hugh, who created the series and serves as showrunner. Kogonada and Justin Chon are executive producers and directed four-four episodes of the first season. Michael Ellenberg and Lindsey Springer executive produce for Media Res, the studio behind the series; Theresa Kang-Lowe executive produces for Blue Marble Pictures, and Richard Middleton also executive produces. David Kim and Sebastian Lee co-executive produce.
