Why I’m looking forward to the new South Korean disaster movie Ashfall

From Official Press Release

January 16, 2019 – Featuring an all-star cast, ASHFALL expands into additional theatres and will be released nationwide today (January 17th). The film, which stars LEE BYUNG HUN, HA JUNG WOO, DON LEE, JEON HYE JIN and BAE SU ZY, opened to a successful weekend over the holidays, which has led to an expansion in multiple top markets. In the face of a disaster that will engulf both North and South Korea, a mission is put into action to stop a supervolcanic eruption. 


An unexpected eruption of Korea’s tallest volcano, which straddles the China-North Korea border, leaves the Korean peninsula in shambles. Seismologists warn this is only the preliminary eruption — A devastating super-eruption is still to come. Yoo-kyung (JEON Hye Jin) is Chief Secretary to the President of South Korea. While her team puts together an emergency countermeasure for the impending national crisis, she meets renowned Korean-American seismologist, Bong-rae (Don LEE). Bong-rae presents a theory that could possibly stop the volcanic explosion.
