The first season of "Pachinko" is now streaming on Apple TV+, but let's dive into some behind-the-scenes first.
In a post on Twitter today, Ellen Freund, the Prop Master for the series, talked about how the crew recreated the Japanese marke where Sunja starts her kimchi business. Freund said that they featured a lot of vendors including carts for medicinal herbs, lanterns, and tea in order to recreate an authentic market in 1938 Osaka.
"This scene in the market really signals Sunja's growth. And awareness of the situation and the truth of life in Japan." -Ellen Freund | Prop Master pic.twitter.com/luib6LMD9V"This scene in the market really signals Sunja's growth.
