Filmmaker Kim Yong-hwa's latest CGI-heavy fantasy spectacle became the first Korean film to draw over 1 million spectators on the first day of its release on Wednesday.
According to the film's distributor, Lotte Entertainment, the film "Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days" broke the previous opening-day record for a Korean film of 970,000, set by the historical epic "The Battleship Island" last year.
"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" released in June this year has the all-time record with 1.18 million viewers for any movies released in Korea.
"Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days," the sequel to "Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds," which attracted 14.41 million viewers when it was released in December last year, revolves around three guardians of death, or grim reapers, who serve as guides to the underworld.
