A teaser trailer for the upcoming film of Yong San Ho, known to viewers for the action film Train to Busan, has appeared online. The science fiction film JUNG_E or Chong-I takes place on Earth in the 22nd century, where the planet’s surface has become uninhabitable as a result of climate change.
The survivors have taken refuge in underground shelters, where a civil war has broken out, which is set to be ended by a robot named JUNG_E, equipped with a clone of the heroic soldier’s brain. It’s worth noting that the AI is being developed by an engineer whose mother is the soldier mentioned above.
The film stars Kang Soo-yeon, Kim Hyun-joo, and Ryu Hyun-soo in the lead roles. The premiere is scheduled for January 20, 2023.
