Pachinko Season 2 Plot
In the final episode of season 1, Hana passed away in 1989. Solomon and Yoshii create preparations to convince Han Geum-JA to vacate her land. In 1938, as the Second World War approached, Isak was detained for “unpatriotic” conduct.
This causes Sunja to open a kimchi stand, much to her brother-in-chagrin. Law’s Koh Hansu joins his son for the first time in the meantime.
Kyunghee will likely assist Sunja in the second season with her kimchi stand. Solomon’s transaction with Yoshii, who has ties to the Yakuza, is certain to have ramifications.
We may learn what happened to Noa. During the War, Koh Hansu will likely aid Sunja’s family in surviving. Sunja has a chance to reunite with her mother in the second installment.
