Korean disaster movie “Ashfall” (Korean title: 백두산 “Baekdusan,” lit. Mount Paektu) will be screened in Philippine cinemas starting February 5.
“Ashfall” was first released in South Korea in December 2019 and stars Lee Byunghun, Ha Jungwoo, Ma Dongseok, Bae Suzy, and Jeon Hyejin. It is about a fictional eruption of Mount Paektu, a volcano that has been stagnant since 1903. Its eruption caused earthquakes across the peninsula, endangering both North and South Korea.
The screening comes a few weeks after the eruption of Taal Volcano which caused extensive damage in property and displacing thousands in Batangas.
