The year end holiday season will have a star-studded big-budget K-movie to look forward to, and hopefully end the Korean box office for 2017 on a high note.

Ha Jung Woo plays the grim reaper escorting Cha Tae Hyun’s character through the 7 trials in 49 days to determine is guilt or innocence in various human transgression, which will determine where he ends up in the afterlife. Joo Ji Hoon is another reaper along with cutie pie Kim Hyang Gi, with Lee Jung Jae going full crazy hair and beard as the King of the Underworld.
