‘Gods’ sequel coming in August

June 06,2018


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.
