What do Ha Jung Woo and Cha Tae Hyun have in common?  Probably nothing. Whereas Ha Jung Woo established himself in the Korean entertainment industry as a serious, dynamic, method actor with explosive movie hits like “Assassination”, ‘The Chaser” and the new biopic film, “1987”, the latter is well-known and loved for his comic roles and feel-good romantic comedy films and dramas like “My Sassy Girl” and “Hello Ghost”.

With that being said, it is pretty obvious that the two are definitely out of their comfort zones in the upcoming fantasy-action film “Along with the Gods (Part 1)”. The two actors are set to play unconventional characters this time; Ha playing an Angel of Death whose task is to guide souls into the afterlife and Cha taking on the role of a soul who needs to undergo seven trials in 49 days.

The highly-anticipated film adaptation of the popular 2010 web comic by Ju Ho-Min is set to be released in December 2017. As the title suggests, it is a two-part film with the second installment following sometime in early 2018.

Joining Ha Jung Woo and Cha Tae Hyun is a powerhouse cast including top stars Joo Ji Hoon, Lee Jung Jae, Ma Dong Seok, and Oh Dal Su. Director Kim Yong-Hwa of “200 Pounds of Beauty” and “Mr. Go” fame will once again work with Ha (“Take Off”) in this epic saga.
