What is Jung E about?

Jung E is an upcoming South Korean science fiction movie from Yeon Sang-Ho, who previously produced the likes of Train to Busan and Hellbound.

Set in the 22ndn.d Century, climate change has forced humanity to live on near-orbit space stations that allow Artificial Intelligence technology to make near-unlimited leaps forward.

When a civil war breaks out between the populations of these stations, Yung Jung-yi makes a name for herself as a ruthless mercenary and brilliant military strategist.

However, when a failed mission puts Jung-yi into a vegetative state, a military AI development company called Kronoid attempts to create the ultimate soldier by cloning her brain.

“35 years later, Jung-yi’s daughter Yun Seo-hyun 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.” – Jung E synopsis, via Netflix Media Center.
