Along with the Gods is an adaptation of the webtoon under the same title, and the production is considered as one of the successful cases of one-source multi-uses. When the production premiered, it was praised for the characters who seemed to have stepped out from the original webtoon and also for the stage design including the LED screen floor, which transported the audience to the netherworld. The story begins with Kim Ja-hong, an average working man who discovers that he has died. When he gets to the netherworld, he meets his netherworld lawyer, Jin Gi-han, who guides him through the seven circles of hell during 49 days. Meanwhile, Gang Lim, the messenger of the netherworld must find a dead soul who escaped back to life to avenge his own death. The story of death and justice asks the audience to contemplate on the meaning of life by following the characters through their journey to the other world.
With the characters straight out of the webtoon, the musical brings the webtoon graphics alive on stage with the innovative stage design and choreography.

Due to the scale of the world the original work depicts, there were concerns to whether it would be possible to present this to on stage; however, SPAC made you forget that you ever doubted their ability. The audience couldn’t help but be awed watching the scene in which the messengers of hell move from different worlds or action scenes come alive with the LED screen.
