Kim Min Ha revealed her grandmother’s reaction to her decision to film “Pachinko”.
In the 6th episode of tvN’s “House on Wheels 4”, which aired on November 17th, a trip to Andong with actor Kim Min Ha, who emerged as a world-rising star through Apple TV+ original series “Pachinko”, was shown.
On this day, Kim Min Ha, Sung Dong Il, Kim Hee Won, and Rowoon headed to Imcheonggak, the home of independence activist Lee Sang Ryong. It is a place where the history of the independence movement and the scars of Japanese imperialism remain intact.
Heading to Imcheonggak, Sung Dong Il asked, “Min Ha’s grandmother is about 90 years old, and she is a living witness of ‘Pachinko’. Has your grandmother watched the drama?”
Kim Min Ha said, “She watched it. When I told my grandmother that I was going to star in ‘Pachinko’, she said, ‘I’m happy for you, but I hope you won’t. It’s so sad that you have to do this’. I’ve heard a lot of things from her, and those words touched me the most.”
Kim Min Ha continued, “She said she didn’t want to even think about it, and so she didn’t want me to feel it even through acting. That’s why I felt more responsible.”
