Picture this: a sci-fi K-drama on Netflix this year. Although Netflix released a sci-fi Korean show in 2021 called The Silent Sea, they are coming up with a new action-adventure film this time around.
Here's what we know about the upcoming Korean action-adventure film, Jung_E.
When Is Jung_E Coming Out?
The cast and crew of Jung_E started filming in October 31, 2021. As shared by one of the main stars of the film, production wrapped up in January 2022.
The translation of the caption reads:
More than anything else, it was a very, very, very fun filming that made me realize that the process is precious. I wanted to keep going, hoping that the filming wouldn’t end… If there is a meeting, in the end parting is… ㅠ Conversation summary written in handwriting…
We ask for your interest, anticipation, and love for the movie ‘Jungi’. -Thank you so much for the coffee tea!
But while filming ended, the movie was under post-production the whole time. And this is only expected since it is a sci-fi film and heavily relies on this technology.
When Jung_E's release date was first announced, it was revealed to be the end of 2022. Unfortunately, this release date was pushed back to January 20, 2023.
Jung_E will be available to stream on Friday, January 20, 2023 at 3:00 am ET.
In addition to Jung_E, the director is working on its sequel entitled Parasyte: The Grey, which will star Goo Kyo Hwan.
What Is Jung_E Story About?
The official synopsis of Jung_E reads:
Earth has been devastated by drastic climate change, and humankind migrates to new shelters in outer space. The civil war that occurs there continues on for decades, and Yun Jung-yi (Kim Hyun-joo) becomes a legendary mercenary and military strategist with countless victories to her name. But one failed mission puts her in a vegetative state. Kronoid, a military A.I. development company, attempts to create the ultimate combat warrior by cloning her brain.
35 years later, Jung-yi’s daughter Yun Seo-hyun (Kang Soo-youn) participates in this effort as the head researcher of the JUNG_E project.
When little progress is made despite numerous cloning and simulation attempts, Kronoid abandons the research to launch another project. Seo-hyun learns of their plans and resolves to save JUNG_E.
