Netflix drops a teaser trailer for a sci-fi film Jung_E, helmed by Sang-ho Yeon, of Train to Busan fame.
Starring Kang Soo-yeon, Kim Hyun-joo, and Ryu Kyung-soo, the film is set in a post-apocalyptic century, where a team of researchers clons the brain of a heroic soldier — her mother.
Set in the 22nd century, climate change has caused the entire planet to become uninhabitable and humans live within a man-made shelter. A civil war breaks out within the shelter.
Jung Yi is the elite leader of the allied forces and a legendary mercenary. She becomes the subject of a brain cloning experiment. The cloning experiment is a potential key to win the war.
It’s the final performance from Kang Soo-yeon as she sadly passed away earlier in 2022. This teaser almost plays like the opening to Ghost in the Shell, putting together an android.
JUNG_E is both written and directed by acclaimed Korean filmmaker Sang-ho Yeon, the film is slated for January 20th, 2023 release.
