In the Year 2194, scientists from the allied forces led by the team leader of Kronoid Lab, Seohyun (Kang Soo-yeon), and the institute head Sang-Hoon (Ryu Kyung-soo) attempt to clone the brain of a heroic soldier to create the best combat command AI ever. The experiment is seen as a potential key to winning the war, but as shown in the trailer, comes with its complications. Multiple clones of JUNG_E, played by Kim Hyun-joo, are seen lined up in a lab and later thrust into action against weaponized robotic dogs. JUNG_E will be released via Netflix on January 20, 2023.
After unveiling an official teaser last month, Netflix now releases a 2-minute trailer for JUNG_E, Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho‘s upcoming film. Fresh off the success of Netflix’s dark fantasy television series Hellbound, Sang-ho’s JUNG_E ventures from the world of the supernatural to a post-apocalyptic future in which humans are forced to live in man-made shelters due to rising sea levels and resource depletion.
