    Along with The Gods: The Two Worlds has topped the box office during its first week of play in Hong Kong. The fantasy epic received the widest ever release for a Korean film in the city-state by playing in 51 of the market’s 53 theaters.
     
    The film debuted in HK on January 11, topping the chart far ahead of Pixar’s Coco (in its third week of release) and the Liam Neeson vehicle The Commuter, which also debuted on the 11th. Through January 14, the hit has generated sales worth HKD 12,136,822 (USD 1.55 million).
     
    Back in Korea, the film has been breaking records since its debut on December 20. Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds has to date welcomed 13.04 million viewers (USD 98 million), making it the fourth most well-attended Korean film of all time. The film also topped the box office in Taiwan at the end of last year.
     
    Until now, the most successful Korean film in Hong Kong has been YEON Sang-ho’s TRAIN TO BUSAN, which broke records there in 2016, where it went on to surpass the Hong Kong thriller Cold War 2 to become the most successful Asian film of all time in the market.
     
    From director KIM Yong-hwa, Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds is based on a popular webtoon by JOO Ho-min and stars CHA Tae-hyun, HA Jung-woo, JU Ji-hoon and KIM Hyang-gi. Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds is the first of a two-part series and was filmed at the same time with the second installment which is titled Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days and is expected to be released this summer.

How much 'Along With the Gods' has grossed?

 

With the Korean film "Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds" expected to surpass a cumulative audience of 14 million, attention is now being paid to how much it has earned in and out of its home country.

According to the real-time based box office tally from the Korean Film Council, the movie has garnered 13.85 million views as of Saturday.

The fantasy action movie is currently the third most-viewed film of all time in South Korea after "Roaring Currents" (2014, 17.6 million) and "Ode to My Father" (2014, 14.26 million).

 

20180128000183_0.jpg

 

Industry insiders say "Along With the Gods" will likely hit No. 2 sooner or later if the current trend continues.

In South Korea, movies seen by more than 10 million viewers are considered huge box-office successes.

The film has so far grossed about 110 billion won ($103 million) in South Korean theaters. Its net sales have reached 97.1 billion won, excluding 3 percent that goes to the state fund for the development of domestic films and a 10 percent supertax.

In addition, the movie is expected to pull in about 4 billion won in the IPTV and overseas theater markets.

It has hit 25 million dollars (about 26.6 billion won) internationally, sweeping box offices in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

In Taiwan, it became the most-viewed Korean film ever, beating out "Train to Busan" (2016). Its international box office is expected to rise further as the movie is set to open in the Philippines, which has a relatively large movie market, on Wednesday and is seeking to open in Japan later this year.

"Train to Busan" is the top-grossing Korean film of all time in the international market. It grossed 46 million dollars in 20 countries around the world.

"Along With the Gods" is the first installment of a two-part series directed by Kim Yong-hwa and is based on a popular webtoon by Joo Ho-min.

Starring Ha Jung-woo, Ju Ji-hoon and Kim Hyang-gi, the film is about a righteous firefighter who is judged in seven hells for 49 days after his death, guided by three grim reapers.

Part two is scheduled to open this summer. (Yonhap)

10 Heartbreaking Korean Melodramas That Are Worth The Tears

 

Stock up tissue boxes as these weep-fest Korean melodramas will surely numb your heart for a while.

In early 2000, Korean melodramas pushed the emergence of Hallyu to a more dominant position and recognition. “Season dramas” such as Autumn Tale and Winter Sonata became household dramas for families, who were able to relate on the unfortunate fate and satisfying triumphs of the lead characters.

 

Although these days melodramas are not as agonizingly conceived in a series-of-unfortunate-event setup, it keeps the staple ingredient of the painstaking narrative for the main leads before hitting happy endings. Improvement on tugging the viewers’ hearts with less tears is also a significant change compared to how we remember Choi Ji Woo or Song Hye Gyo crying almost every episode in their earlier projects.

 

Sometimes the amount of tears you shed for Korean melodrama does not make it unforgettable. You cry at the actual moment while watching it, but it does not leave a lingering effect. But there are stunningly captured Korean melodramas that remain carved in the viewers’ hearts, because of how beautifully and emotionally it was imagined. Each frame lets you feel the rush of the tears, and the nuance of hope for the character to be emancipated from his agonizing situation. Such power and dedication are needed to perfectly picture melodramas.

 

Let’s look back on some of the most recent Korean melodramas, which left us feeling sweetly depressed due to the amount of emotions we invested. Stories which gave us a prolonged inability to move on past the aftermath. Characters who provided us harrowing answers to life questions that we are too proud to ask.

 

 

6. Five Fingers

 

Five_Fingers-003.jpg?w=600

 

When you have the protagonist, villains, and counter-villains living under the same roof scheming on how they can make each other suffer and retaliating at the same time, you get the best drama ensembles acting wise. Five Fingers tells the story of a dysfunctional family that mutually detests each other. The intense, unlimited angst thrown at each other proves how money is thicker than blood and first love.

 

Full of flavors and sentiments, Five Fingers takes pride on the cohering storytelling, which its actors are pushed to the acting limit without showing any sign of defiance. It is a sweet tears and bliss story that you can share with your family.

 

 

10. Mask

 

mask_01-720x405.jpg?resize=720,405

 

Mask, having damaged characters, entices you by how much it deconstructs the main leads’ motivations and frailties on what they are willing to give, because of greed, vengeance and sacrificial love. Swerving from the musty melodrama trademark, it raises its fight club banner through lies, devious plots, and ruthless counter attacks for reasons of being blindly in love, and the thirst to achieve a payback.

 

The story evolves around a poor woman, who is hired to pretend as the daughter-in-law of a rich family, when the real rich girl died because of an accident. The lie that she agrees to do backfires, when she wakes up falling in love with her husband.

So happy about all the success of Along With the Gods! I was able to see it at a local theater in the US yesterday (well, we drove over half an hour each way to get there, but it was worth it!) and no spoilers -- I really enjoyed the movie! It's epic, and entertaining, and emotional, which are all the things I want out of a cinema experience. I'm not Korean, but I kind of feel a bit excited for the country for producing such a huge "Hollywood" CGI/effects-heavy movie series, if that makes any sense. I'm really looking forward to the sequel!

 

JJH was very good indeed although his character was a bit shallow IMO, but the role had him doing a lot of action and looking extremely handsome in his costume. Seeing him on the big screen made me realize all over again how TALL he is. :lol: 

 

The movie was packed with Korean actors operating at the top of their game, so that was a treat as well. For me the highlights were: Ha Jung Woo, whose work I always love to watch; Cha Tae Hyun was excellent; and I also thought Do Kyungsoo did very well with his part. The little girl from Train to Busan had a super cute cameo type of role.

 

Here's a "behind the scenes" video from the Facebook of CGV:

Congratulations to all the casts & production team! I heard that JJH is really good here. I'm very happy for him to have such a hit movie! :lol:

I want to watch this one too, I'm happy for him. I miss him. I watched Antique again a few weeks ago, he was great in it and I just love the movie. Has there been any news about Kindom lately?

 

@jinjoint I looked to see if it was showing in my area but had no luck.  I would love to see it in a theater.

Hi evie so bad that I wasn't able to watch the drama, "Antique" -  "Kingdom" movie is scheduled for release this year (2018) but no exact date yet. I'm waiting to see this film because it breaks new ground by combining two popular genres in one series: historical period drama and zombie action-thriller. Netflix said that the film will get a limited day-and-date release in the U.S., but it did not disclose further details. The writer has been working on "Kingdom" since 2011. So, this must be good!  This will be Netflix's second original series in South Korea. I hope we could get MORE news about the movie soon. :lol:

They probably won't release the subbed eps for the U.S. until the drama's over. That's what they did for Man to Man. I checked Netflix but all they had was a coming soon.  They are letting Viki sub the Hong Sisters dramas in my region so  I have hope I won't have to watch Kingdom at the sites you can't mention here.

Hi evie, I love "Mask" - Aside from JJH, I also enjoyed watching Yeon Jung Hoon here. Soo Ae has great chemistry with her leading man, Ju Ji HoonThe ending is a pleasing one. For those who still haven't watched this drama - If you love hardcore melodramas with lots of twists and turns and a beautifully depicted romance at the core, then don't miss "Mask." It had an interesting plot set up that made me want to watch on to find out more about the mysteries that had been sprinkled throughout the early episodes. The first couple episodes of "Mask" jump right into the overall premise of the drama.  There were times when "Mask" lost focus but the overall plot was definitely enjoyable. :lol:

*** I’m hoping it'll be amazing.  It's been awhile... JJH! Since last year we always saw him doing movies. I want to see more of Ju ji hoon on the small screen. I'm actually really looking forward to this one in case he takes this. Joo Ji-hoon is excellent as an actor. Please accept the part, JJH! I also miss a fierce Ha Ji Won on my screen. I hope this will happen. JU JI HOON and HA JI WON a dreamy collaboration.  I love the cast!  Anyway, I'm scared for the possibility of the outcome of this so-called blockbuster project, so I hope it is as good as it is hyped of! I hope this one lives up to its expectation. The plot sounds really interesting. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this dream couple will accept the drama roles. I have a fondness for these two. So, if there's Joo ji hoon, I'm in! I miss him on my screen now. I'm always looking forward to his next project.  I heard they will also shoot in (5) different countries. :lol:

*** SM Entertainment has expanded their business even further since it's acquiring KeyEast and FNC Add Culture stocks.  (JJH is currently under KE) The stocks belonged to BYJ.  With the agreement, he has also acquired new shares of SM Entertainment, becoming a major stockholder of SM Entertainment. I heard that he will now act as a marketing adviser for SM Group and a global strategy adviser for KeyEast. Bravo! I didn't expect this. Bae Yong-joon is a very smart businessman!  I heard that SM will pay BYJ 15 billion won in cash, while the rest will be paid out to him in the form of SM shares. They say that even before the acquisition, SM had its eyes on KeyEast. Kim Soo-hyun and Ju Ji-hoon who are stars from KeyEast are expected to have better career opportunities abroad due to the latest acquisition. Wait & see................. :lol:
