The stars of upcoming movie 'Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds' sat down for an interview and photoshoot with High Cut magazine. They talked about everything from hypothetical divine powers to world peace to how stressed out director Kim Yong-hwa is with the post-production of the feature.
As noted by website Soompi, the photoshoot was a joint collaboration with the movie's production. The 13 cast members were all dressed in black and posed for both group photos and profile shots. They were Ha Jung-woo, Cha Tae-hyun, Joo Ji-hon, Kim Hyang-gi, Kim Dong-wook, Oh Dal-soo, Im Won-hee, EXO's D.O., Jang Gwang, Jung Hae-kyun, Kim Soo-ahn, Lee Jung-jae, and Kim Hae-sook.
Cha tae-hyun plays one of the principal characters around whom the story of the movie evolves. His character Kim Ja-hong dies in an accident and a grim reaper, played by Ha Jung-woo, escorts him to the afterlife where he will be judged based on his actions in life.
Cha Tae-hyun was asked what he'd do if he became a god. He responded, "In the past, I thought about what would be good for me. But now, I think more about world peace, even more so now that my kids are growing up. I think that my kids' lives will change as much as we put in the effort. But I do want my kids to at least grow up in a society without war or terrorism."
Ha Jung-woo was asked about how he'd decorate the heaven if he made one. He replied, "I would plant a lot of cypress trees so that there would be a lot of phytoncide. I would also like it if there were bishon frise dogs of every color running around. Fruit trees would also be nice. Macadamia trees would be good too, since we need nuts [in our diet]."
Kim Hwang-gi, who plays another grim reaper in the movie was asked a rather morbid question, She was asked what she'd choose as her last meal. The 'Snowy Road' actress said, "My grandmother's soybean paste stew. We call it Ttabakjang [a regional name for soybean paste stew]. I would eat it with steamed cabbage and rice."
Actor Ju Ji-hoon, who plays a seaman called Maek or Mac, revealed that the director of the picture Kim Yong-hwa, was quite stressed with all the different aspects of post-production, currently. He was asked who he'd give a flower, that had the ability to make the person laugh just by looking at it. His answer was, "I would give it to Kim Yong Hwa. He's a bright and fun person to be around, but he's probably under an unbelievable amount of stress right now, thinking about CG, music, and how well the movie will do."
'Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds' will release in South Korean cinemas on December 20. Actor Do Kyung-soo urged viewers to go watch the movie as per him, "There. Is. None. Like. It."
