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