‘Along with the Gods: the Two Worlds’ Beats the Box Office Record of ‘Train to Busan’

If you think “Train to Busan” is the most popular Korean movie of all time, well not anymore. The recently-released fantasy-drama “Along with the Gods: the Two Worlds” has already beaten the zombie movie’s box office record and it’s now making waves around the world!

“Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds” is South Korea’s latest hit movie based on a graphic novel, a webcomic by Joo Ho-min. It stars Ha Jung-Woo (“The Tunnel,” “The Handmaiden”), Cha Tae-Hyun (“My Sassygirl”), Ju Ji-Hoon (“Princess Hours”), Kim Hyang-Gi (“A Werewolf Boy”), Lee Jung-Jae (“Sandglass”), Kim Dong-Wook (“Radiant Office”), and EXO’s Doh Kyung-Soo.

The film tells the story of the death of an ordinary fireman named Ja-hong (Cha Tae-hyun) and Gang-rim (Ha Jung-woo), the head grim reaper who escorts Ja-hong to the afterlife, where he will assign a public defender to represent him in 7 trials in 49 days to find out how he lived his life and where he ought to spend the rest of eternity.

The film will be released in two parts, the first one (“The Two Worlds”) premiered last December 20, 2017 in South Korea and its domestic box office gross hits US$105.5 million beating Train to Busan‘s $99 million. The second part of the film, “Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days,” will be released later this year.

Directed by Kim Yong-wha (“200 Pounds Beauty”), “Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds” are also being shown in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, U.S.A., Canada, and on February 7 in the Philippines. It’s also coming to 90 other countries this year.
