The South Korean film industry is getting a huge boost after a sluggish year with the release of the film “Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days.”
The movie is a sequel to “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds,” which was filmed at the same time as the original in 2016; “Two Worlds” was released in December 2017. The 2017 fantasy-action-drama film saw much success, but the sequel has already surpassed 6 million tickets sold after one week.
The movie is based on a webtoon by Joo Ho-min. Director Kim Yong Hwa has elevated the Korean film industry in CGI area through his use of special effects. The all-star cast of Ha Jung-woo, Cha Tae-hyun and Ju Ji-hoon make a great team.
