*** I watched "Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds" because of JJH. The whole film was a visual effects extravaganza. I found the concept of the afterlife presented by this film to be very interesting. On the debit side, the film tried to squeeze in too many subplots in its 140 minutes such that there are parts that may feel confusing and long. I noticed about the ending that a sequel is teased at the end. I find the movie good. :lol:

Just saw that one of JJH's upcoming movies has been invited to screen at the Cannes Film Festival! I believe it was previously titled Duke and also Operation, but now it seems to be titled The Spy Gone North. It's screening out of competition in the Midnight Screenings section (where Gong Yoo's Train to Busan and Sol Kyung Gu/Im Siwan's The Merciless were screened in previous years at Cannes).

 

I'm excited about this one because it also stars acting powerhouses Hwang Jung Min, Lee Sung Min, and Jo Jin Woong. Hopefully JJH will get to attend the festival with everyone. :)

The plot, inspired by a true story, follows a South Korean spy who infiltrates the North to obtain intelligence on its nuclear weapons program in the 1990s. Featuring Hwang Jung-min, Lee Sung-min, Jo Jin-woong and Joo Ji-hoon, the film will hit local theaters this summer.

This is director Yoon’s second time to be invited to Cannes, following “The Unforgiven” in 2006. 

The 71st Cannes Film Festival will be held from May 8 to 19 in the southern coastal city of Cannes in France.

Hi jinjoint, thanks for sharing this.  Gosh.............I almost forgot about this movie. This is one of the K-films aside from "Burning", which were invited to screen at the Cannes. It's just that “The Spy Gone North” has been invited in a non-competitive category.  The 71st Cannes Film Festival will be held from May 8 to May 19. Seeing JJH stars in such a good film makes me so happy. Congratulations, “The Spy Gone North” team! :lol:

I'm so happy for him too, he has been on a roll lately w/his movie choices.  I haven't had a chance to watch Along with the Gods yet. I have it bookmarked at a site, I'm going to have to make some time this weekend to watch it. I'm crossing my fingers that it has decent subs.

5 Male Leads From Korea’s Biggest Shows Who Were Supposed To Be Played By Someone Else

These shows could have turned out completely different…!

 

 

These Korean blockbusters and mega-hit TV series all had strong male leads. Surprisingly, none of them had been the initial cast the production tried to sign!

 

 

5. Song Joong Ki vs. Joo Ji Hoon

 

Kingdom is going to be the second Korean original Netflix series to air. For this historical period set zombie thriller, actor Song Joong Ki was discussed for the main male lead. However, the actor turned the role down because the schedule wouldn’t allow, as he had to get ready for his wedding. Then actor Joo Ji Hoon accepted the role and has been in production for months.

 

VslGpG67aXggjnePSNNSZfzU8A8RSLtAUW9QI-Z1

 

Kingdom has not yet aired, but got involved in multiple controversies in its production stage. When an art production staff passed away, allegations pointed it was from overworking, so the shoot was halted for weeks.

Then a drug scandal of one of the cast members, actor Jung Suk Won, broke out, leading the production team to respond its plan to remove him from most, if not all, scenes. With so much buzz even before its premiere, the show has viewers more curious about it, but not for the best reasons.

Hi evie, I hope by this time you were able to watch the movie already. This movie will be remade as a VR Ride Film version, meaning a Virtual Reality.  The production team of Along With The Gods VR will recreate the Seven Hells and other locales of the afterlife and retell the story in VR. Along With The Gods VR will invite audiences to an immersive experience made possible by virtual reality with the help of motion chairs.  This VR project is supervised by KIM Yong-hwa, director of Along with the Gods."

 
I read that Realies Pictures are pre-producing a TV series adaptation of the original web comic. They are planning to write the script this year and will begin to shoot next year. The sequel will reveal the past of the Grim Reaper and the three guardians seen in the first movie and introduce a new character, God of House, who helps people in the living world.  :lol:

Summer box-office preview: the 5 most highly anticipated Korean movies

 

SEOUL, May 28 (Yonhap) -- Summer is typically the peak season for the Korean film industry, the time when roughly one quarter of all moviegoers hit theaters. Major distributors have already competed fiercely to set the best timing for their new release.

Last year, "A Taxi Driver" about the 1980 Gwangju pro-democracy uprising was the most-viewed movie of the summer, drawing more than 10 million views. At the same time, "The Battleship Island," one of the most anticipated films of the year, was a box-office flop while "Midnight Runners" was a surprise sensation with more than 5 million views.

Here is a list of this summer's five most anticipated Korean films.

Along With the Gods 2 (Tentative title)

 

"Along With the Gods 2" is a sequel to the successful 2017 fantasy blockbuster "Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds," the second-most-viewed film of all time in South Korea seen by 14.41 million moviegoers.

 

Directed by Kim Yong-hwa, the first installment of the two-part series was about a righteous firefighter (played by Cha Tae-hyun) who is judged in seven hells for 49 days after his death, guided by three grim reapers played by Ha Jung-woo, Ju Ji-hoon and Kim Hyang-gi. Part two, set to open in early August, has actor Ma Dong-seok as Seongju God (House Guardian God) helping people in addition to the three main characters. The film will be released by Lotte Entertainment.

“Along With The Gods 2” Releases Official Poster And Premiere Date

 

Along-With-The-Gods-2-1.jpg

 

“Along With the Gods 2” has released its official poster and premiere date.

 

The official poster of the sequel to the box office hit announced that the movie will be premiering on August 1. The film is entitled “Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” and depicts a dark, smoldering landscape with the three grim reapers Joo Ji Hoon, Ha Jung Woo, and Kim Hyang Gi. The film will also star Ma Dong Seok and Kim Dong Wook, with a special appearance from Lee Jung Jae.

 

Along-With-The-Gods-2.jpg

 

The first film, “Along With the Gods: Two Worlds,” was a smash hit, breaking records with over 14.4 million moviegoers. It also achieved the highest box office of any Asian movie in Taiwan, the second highest box office of any Korean movie in Hong Kong, and was also popular in North America, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, and more. The films especially gained attention as they were the first Korean movies to conclude filming both at the same time, rather than filming the sequel after the release of the first film.

 

The sequel will be about the grim reapers from the first film as they guide their 49th soul through the underworld, which upon completion, means they will recover their memories from one thousand years ago. Anticipation for the film continues to rise, with many curious about the role of Sung Joo Shin (played by Ma Dong Seok), who made a brief appearance in the first film.

‘Gods’ sequel coming in August

 

The final installment of the hit series “Along with the Gods” will hit theaters on Aug. 1.

Based on a web comic of the same name by Joo Ho-min, the sequel will be directed by Kim Yong-hwa. The previous installment, “Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds,” was released last December.

The fantasy adventure revolves around three grim reapers who are promised reincarnation after they complete their 49th trial. The sequel will feature a new character, the god Seung-ju, who remembers the trio’s past.

Some of the actors from the first movie, including Ha Jung-woo, Ju Ji-hoon and Kim Hyang-gi, will reprise their roles, but there are new faces as well. Ma Dong-seok, whose previous work includes “Train of Busan” (2016) and “Champion” (2018), will play the new god.

Cho Han-cheul and Kim Myeong-gon have replaced Oh Dal-su and Choi Il-hwa after the two were accused of sexual misconduct. The film studio decided to cut Oh and Choi from the project and reshot their parts with Cho and Kim in April.

     I saw the first one too ( on a smart TV) , and I don't think that would do justice to this movie. Have a nice day.

Watch: “Along With the Gods 2” Takes Viewers On Emotional Roller Coaster In Suspenseful Trailer

 

Along-With-the-Gods-21.jpg

 

“Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” has dropped its first official trailer ahead of its release later this summer!

 

Based on a popular web comic series, this two-part series began with “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds,” which was a huge success as it surpassed many milestones in record time. With over 14.4 million moviegoers recorded, the first film is currently the second biggest box office hit in Korean film history.

 

The upcoming sequel “Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” will continue the story of the three grim reapers from the first film (played by Ha Jung Woo, Joo Ji Hoon, and Kim Hyang Gi) as they guide their once-impossible 49th soul Soo Hong (Kim Dong Wook) through the trials of the underworld with the promise of reincarnation.

 

During their fate-determining journey, they meet the mysterious Sung Joo Shin (Ma Dong Seok), who knows these grim reapers’ buried and forgotten past from 1000 years ago. As the grim reapers and Soo Hong teeter on the edge of the past, life, and the afterlife, the connections between their long-forgotten secrets come to light.

 

The trailer hints at a darker underlying emotion that pervades the entire film, one that is different from that of the first movie. As scenes flash by, a voice ominously says, “But there is one thing that seems to be for certain. There are no bad humans. When you feel resentful and bitter, when you don’t understand, think of everything backwards.”

 

At the very end, Ha Jung Woo declares, “I request that the king of the underworld who controls the afterlife act as the last witness.”

 

 

 

“Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days” will be released in South Korean theaters on August 1.
