200 Pounds Beauty and Mr. Go helmer Kim Yong-Hwa’s sweeping new fantasy adventure, Along With The Gods, aims to cover a lot of ground through next year. Its inspiration from a popular webcomic hopes to be the seed that sprouts a two-part epic that is now being confirmed for an official North American release date on December 22 from Well Go USA two days after its Korean bow.
