Review: ALONG WITH THE GODS: THE LAST 49 DAYS Maintains Epic Fantasy Deliberation With Unfolding Drama
Director Kim Yong-Hwa made a major hit for himself late last year adapting Korean fantasy webtoon, Along With The Gods: The Two Worlds. The film even took me by surprise thinking it would be one straightforward film at one point and not knowing right away there would be an almost immediate back-to-back sequel, and even learning recently that more developments for the big and small screen were in bound.
Hat tip over to Pierce Conran at Modern Korean Cinema who brings word that two more films will shoot back-to-back next year further encompassing Kim Yong-Hwa’s Along With The Gods saga. Cast and crew details remain pending while the new sequels will venture into prequel and spin-off territory based on Joo Ho-Min’s 2010 webtoon series.
Along With The Gods kicked off with The Two Worlds, releasing late last year and overseas in early 2018. Featuring Cha Tae-Yun as a firefighter who dies earlier on, the film tells of the elusive, afterworld mystery, intrigue and danger surrounding a trio of guardian reapers who reluctantly aid in human affairs as our protagonist faces seven hellbound trials to test his purity.
Releasing on August 1 in South Korea, several select cast are reprising for the current upcoming sequel dubbed The Last 49 Days, including Ha Jung-Woo, Kim Hyang-Gi, Ju Ji-Hoon, Don Lee and Lee Jung Jae with Kim Dong-Wook also starring.
