If I may offer my thoughts on why adult Sunja (who’s the main protagonist in the book) is not being talked about: she could be a narrator with story being recalled from her perspective. Maybe it’s one huge flashback being retold by an older Sunja (or her descendant).  After all, the book was acclaimed for being female-centric so I doubt that they will spin it to be all about MH’s character.  
 

That being said, I hope that MH’s role be strongly dramatic that will set a whole new reputation for him as an actor. His flower boy brand (that’s been over exploited in his millions of CFs) has overshadowed his acting in the eyes of many people, so I’m excited that he’s taking steps to solidify himself as a serious actor. 
 

I also don’t mind seeing him do 18+ scenes, being a pervy ahjumma myself. After all, our boy is over 30—let him mature too, k :yum:

I cannot like this post enough. Love everything you said.

Lee Min Ho will be returning with a new acting project—the global video streaming service (OTT) Apple TV+ drama Pachinko (literal translation).

 

 

Apple TV+ in the U.S. officially announced the production of the drama Pachinko and named the actor as the lead of its cast, which will be composed of Korean, Japanese, and American actors.

 

The drama is based on a best-selling novel of the same name written by Korean-American author Lee Min Jin. Set to be distributed globally through Apple TV+, it will be conducted in three languages: Korean, Japanese and English.

 

Pachinko will feature a total of eight episodes of individual stories penetrated by history on a vast scale and in depth through four generations of Korean immigrant family epic stories. Filming for this global masterpiece will begin on October 26.

 

Lee Min Ho, who is the drama’s first revealed cast member, plays Han Soo. The character is a merchant who has built up wealth and power with ties to the yakuza. He plays an important role in the context of the story as an opportunist who is faithful to his desires and a mysterious person who pursues a forbidden love with a secret kept from the person he loves.

 

Portraying a chronicle of war, peace, love and separation as well as victory and ties between Korea, Japan and the U.S, Pachinko will be produced by the production company Media Reds.

 

The Terror and The Killing television writer Soo Hugh will participate in the series as its main writer, general production and showrunner.  Korean-American director Kogonada (Columbus, After Yang) and director Justin Chon are also confirmed to participate in the production.

I am late to the party! But very glad about the news, the confirmation and the Hansu role!! 

I really like that he is tackling a different kind of role and choosing to play an antihero, because this character can make people forget about his flower boy image and focus in his acting, because he is such an amazing actor and should receive the recognition he deserves. 

Regarding +18 scenes: I think those scenes are quite common in western productions and I don't have any problem with them if they make sense into the story and are well directed and played. For example, the Gangnam Blues scenes were, for my taste, too explicit and I did not like them (not the one with LMH without shirt, that one doesn't qualify as +18), but I think in this production we will see at least one +18 rating scene and it makes sense, I just hope that it is done with taste.

Good morning. I am finally out of lurking this news has finally reached me. 

 

I read the wiki details about this AppleTV+ series. I know that they recently produced highly valued content that network which is what makes me excited. I approve this series for him and it is the right step for his career and hopefully he wins Golden Globe and Emmy for this one. 

 

Aside from that after he has done this one it's time to be selfish and he needs to go back to his roots which is Gangster movies and so far he has done two gangster films and he died in both of them. I wanna see him in a gangster saga movie that runs across multiple films like about 3-4 installments. 

 

He has truly shined in the romance genre and he has made a name for himself in that genre but I have always felt he has an energy about himself which allows him to enter such characters flawlessly and his always more at home with anti-heros and villiany characters

 

 

 

 

This is my exact sentiment regarding Lee Min Ho. His always been an actor whos at home with darker roles and villiany type but he just so happens to have the right amount of energy and intensity to succeed in romance genre which has made him the actor he is today and that we cherish this much but his always been that villainy lenient actor. He also has the right amount of coolness and flashiness that goes with it which makes it easy for him to execute such roles and he also has the menacing figure and height for it couple with his pentrating eyes his a wall and domineering male presence

I wrote that actully before I knew he was gonna play Hansu. It was not exactly a prediction but it somehow worked out as I wanted. I agree with everything you said by the way

To all those who read the book @msdot@Layali@HeretorantDoes Hansu have a strong presence throughout the novel? Does he have enough screen time to make himself felt? I read Wikipedia and he seems to be in the background just watching not out in front and participating like Sunja.

 

I feel that in many American series, it is the story that succeeds more than the characters themselves, few like Breaking Bad, you see the character stand out.  Of all the many American series that I have watched, none stood out that I cared about or rooted for.  Can you name some American series where you rooted for the male lead or female lead?

Read this comment from the Soompi article that was posted today

 

"Hansu wasn't pure when it came to love. He beat a prostitute bloody disfiguring her face in that book, he was Yakuja and his connection is to Noah more than Sunja. Also, this novel is about Sunja......the biggest eye roll was the fact that Mojasu, a Korean born to two Korean parents in Japan will be played by a Japanese actor."
