Netflix has revealed a new trailer for the sci-fi thriller, ‘Jung_E.’ The Korean-language movie, Jung_E will release on January 20, 2023, on Netflix, worldwide.
The film is set in the 22nd century, when climate change has rendered the Earth inhospitable, forcing humanity to live in a man-made shelter. An internal war breaks out, and the outcome is dependent on the success of the brain-cloning technology of the legendary robot mercenary Jung_E. Director Yeon Sang-ho has redefined the future of Korean cinema with films such as Train to Busan, Peninsula, and Hellbound. He focuses on the essential themes of brain cloning and human-like mercenary robots in this film.
The high-budget sci-fi and action-thriller also have a stellar cast. Kang Soo-youn portrays Seo-hyeon, the team leader of a brain cloning and artificial intelligence facility. She is in charge of testing the cloning of Jung_E’s brain and combat abilities. Kim Hyun-joo plays the titular role of Jung_E, the most elite soldier of the allied forces battling the shelter troops and a subject of brain-clone experiments. Kim will evoke complex emotions through her portrayal of the “legendary mercenary” fighting in dynamic and exciting action fight scenes and suffering through recurrent brain cloning testing. Ryu Kyung-soo plays Sang-hun, the director of the research center hell-bent on cloning Jung-E’s brain in order to lead the allied troops to triumph.
The film has many things going for it: it is director Yeon Sang-ho’s imaginative new sci-fi film; it explores the novel concept of brain cloning a "legendary mercenary" in the 22nd century; it features the legendary actor Kang Soo-youn and transformative roles for both Kim Hyun-joo and Ryu Kyung-soo, and it is packed with spectacular and realistic action.
Jung_E is produced by Climax Studio along with Netflix.
