The experiment is thought to be a key to winning the war, but it comes with complications, as revealed in the trailer.
Several clones of Jung E (Kim Hyun-Joo) are seen lined up in a facility before being unleashed on armed robotic dogs. The story is set in a time when the Earth has been destroyed by climate change.
Most people live in an area called “Shelter,” where there is an ongoing civil conflict. Yun Jung-yi, a soldier, is sent on a mission to “Shelter,” only to return to Earth in a vegetative state.
The military chooses to resurrect Jung-Yi and her combative traits as an AI robot, while her daughter Yun Seo-hyun leads the essential brain cloning research. “With the topic of AI, I want to produce a work that blends the SF genre’s outstanding visual aesthetics with a very accessible topic at the heart of humans,” said director Yeon of the upcoming film.
The cast of Jung E
Kang Soo Yeon will play the lead character, Seo Hyun. She is the team head for a research center that develops a.i. and brain cloning technology and is in charge of Jung E’s brain clone and combat power test.
Unfortunately, JUNG E is the last time we see her on TV before she sadly died from a brain hemorrhage on May 7, 2022. Kim Hyun Joo will play Jung Yi, a former Allied Forces commander who is the subject of a brain cloning experiment.
