Notably, Apple TV's "Pachinko" is based on the 2017 book with the same name written by Lee Min Jin. 

The story of the K-drama "Pachinko" starts in the year 1910, when Korea was occupied by Japan, and revolves around the lives of the Zainichi population. Zainichi are Korean people who emigrated to Japan during the occupation of Japan. 

"Pachinko" shows the lives of an immigrant family from multiple generations and the Apple TV K-drama has been garnering acclaim for telling the family's story without changing or making the storyline confusing.

The Apple TV K-drama has a plethora of talented actors and actresses which include Youn Yuh Jung, Kim Min Ha, and Lee Min Ho. "Pachinko" is so well-loved that it has been dubbed as the finest drama of the year by NME.

On the 24th of March, Apple TV posted the opening sequence of the K-drama on YouTube and due to this, fans of "Pachinko" who are not subscribed to Apple TV were able to get a piece of the popular K-drama.

SHINEE's Shawols who were able to see the opening sequence of "Pachinko" noticed that a pair of hands looked very familiar in the opening sequence. After further inspection, it was concluded that the hands were none other than Taemin's.
