There’s good news for fans of the currently screening South Korean film “Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds”. The sequel is scheduled to arrive in Thailand on April 12.

A massive hit at home, the action blockbuster has attracted almost 12 million viewers and earned more than 90 billion won (around Bt2.79 billion), setting the new record of South Korean film history and Asia.

The two parts have been more than six years in the making but the wait has been more than worthwhile. “Along With the Gods” tells the story of firefighter Ja-hong (Cha Tae-hyun), who is taken to the afterlife by three guardians, where only after passing seven trials and proving he lived a noble life will he be able to reincarnate. Based on the wildly popular webcomic, “Along With the Gods” is a star-studded, action-packed fantasy epic about life, death, rebirth, and the unseen forces that guide us through all. The second part will continue the adventures of Ja-hong and the three guardians during the trials. The film is directed by Kim Yong-hwa, who also helmed “200 Pounds Beauty”, “Take Off”, and “Mr GO”. Ha Jung-woo, Ju Ji-hoon and Kim Hyan-gi are among the co-stars
