Dear KACA members,
I would like to invite you to a fireside conversation to support our eminent Korean America female producer, Theresa Kang-Lowe, for her Apple TV+ release of Pachinko, “an epic historical fiction novel following a Korean family that were forced to move to Japan and character-driven story featuring racism, stereotyping, and other aspects.”
Since Pachinko will be released on Friday, March 25th, the conversation will be more to do with her career, storytelling and a lesson for students who prepare a similar career path. This session is mainly for the Korean communicators like you and me. But, I believe it will be truly inspiring mentorship conversation for the BIPOC educators, professionals, and students. Please join us and show your support!
This coming Friday, March 11th 7pm (ET): https://bit.ly/3toPGp7
[About Theresa Kang-Lowe]
Theresa Kang-Lowe is the first Asian American and Korean American to ascend to become a partner of a major talent agency, William Morris Endeavor (WME, https://www.wmeagency.com/story/). This agency represents major celebrities, sports figures, musicians, authors, directors, and producers (including famous individuals such as Kevin Costner, Serena Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Whoopi Goldberg, and many others).
She is credited with securing a half-billion in deals for her celebrity clients and recently has an exclusive multi-year producing deal with Apple TV for film and television series such as Pachinko through her own Blue Marble Pictures (https://appleinsider.com/…/apple-tv-secures-multi-year…).
Ms. Theresa Kang-Lowe, as an Executive Producer of talent, films, and TV series, won an exclusive deal with AppleTV+. She has worked with 20 academic advisers, historians, and consultants to bring Pachinko to life on AppleTV+.
The story is based on New York Times best seller, “Pachinko,” written by Korean American author, Min Jin Lee, which is “a saga of four generations of a Korean family that were forced to move to Japan to control their destiny in 20th-century Japan.” Although the story is about a Korean Japanese family a century ago, it will tell us a lot about faith, family and, identity.
