South Korean Action Sci-fi Thriller Jung_E Trailer is Out! Watch Now!

Watch the trailer!

In Yeon Sang-new ho’s movie, Jung E, set in the near future after the end of the world, there is a fight between mother and country. And that is literally an army of moms based on the mother of a researcher at an AI lab. In the new Netflix movie, a scientist deals with the death of her brave mother by… cloning her. The movie takes place during a civil war. Surely nothing could go wrong, right?

The official trailer for Jung E, Netflix’s newest South Korean action/science fiction thriller from Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho, has been released. On January 20, you’ll be able to stream the movie.

The video gives us a sneak peek at a dystopian future in which climate change has made the Earth too hot to live on. It shows how a famous mercenary is turned into an artificial intelligence that will be the most powerful weapon in the coming war.

Yeon Sang-ho wrote and directed Jung E. He worked with Netflix before on the supernatural thriller show Hellbound. Yeon and the movie’s main star, Kim Hyun-joo, worked together in Hellbound, where she played an attorney named Min Hyejin. Now, in the upcoming action science fiction movie, Kim will play a highly skilled soldier who becomes the main subject of a cloning experiment.

The synopsis says, “In a near-future post-apocalyptic world, a researcher at an AI lab leads the effort to stop a civil war by cloning the brain of a brave soldier—her mother.”

Ryu Kyung-soo (Itaewon Club) will play Sang-hoon, Park So-yi (Deliver Us From Evil) will play Seohyun, and Kang Soo-yeon (The Surrogate Woman), who won the Volpi Cup, will play her last role before her sudden death from a cerebral haemorrhage at age 55 in 2022.

In terms of body horror and ethical compromise, it’s gripping and grotesque. The AI creation scenes don’t hold back, and we’re intrigued by Yeon’s perspective on this terrifying future. This sci-fi vision takes place in the year 2194, when people are living on shelters outside of our inhabitable planet, so it makes sense that survivors would turn to their mothers for help: imagine if your mother was the terminator and she became humanity’s only hope.
