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.

Earth has been devastated by drastic climate change, and humankind migrates to new shelters in outer space.
