As a result of climate change, the world has become inhospitable in the 22nd century, and people now live inside artificial structures. In the refuge, a conflict is raging. Yun Jung-Yi (Kim Hyun-Joo) is their top commander among the allied forces. She is used in an experiment involving brain cloning. One strategy to win the conflict may be the cloning experiment.

The brain cloning project was a success with Seo-Hyun and Sang-Hun. Seo-Hyun leads the facility that creates brain cloning and AI technology. The laboratory’s manager is Sang-Hun.


Most of humanity left the planet in 2194 due to resource depletion and increasing sea levels. They have established a life in space, but as is customary, society has already begun waging war there. It’s a double whammy because it takes place in a future where AI robots coexist, and we already know from experience that they sometimes follow the rules.

In the middle of this, Yun Seo-Hyun (Kang Soo-Yeon), a lead researcher at a top AI lab, is on a clandestine mission to bring her deceased mother back by meticulously studying her brain in order to clone it and command the war against the enemy.

The human relationships and sentiments of a mother and daughter, Yun Jung-Yi (Kim Hyun-Joo) and Yun Seo-Hyun, are at the heart of this high-tech and AI-powered battle. Using stylish VFX and camera work, Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho sets his story in a futuristic universe, but he makes the central idea incredibly straightforward and understandable.

Unexpectedly little action occurs, and the film’s persistently gloomy tone makes it somewhat tedious to watch. The visuals are particularly repetitive because most indoor battle scenes are filmed on make-believe sets, giving the action a highly video-game-like feel. However, some genuinely fantastic concepts—like existing indefinitely and residing in space shelters—are thoroughly explored.

Ironically, Kang Soo-Youn, who made a return with this movie, passed away from a cerebral haemorrhage months before it was released on streaming services. The fact that she plays a terminally ill woman in the film, which its creators have dedicated to her, is an unavoidably painful coincidence. It also cannot be divorced from the film’s deep emotional core, which stands out more than all the intricate AI mumbo-jumbo.

The execution of “Jung E” is incredibly touching despite being only moderately adventurous and engaging on average. And that is what gives this disorganized jumble of devices and technology a beating heart and a soul.

Rating – Four out of five stars.

Although JUNG E has flaws, Yeon Sang-creation ho’s of a world and Kang Soo-youn and Ryu Kyung-performances soo’s are undeniably outstanding. Sang-ho Yeon is the film’s director, and Byun Seung-min is the producer. Kang Soo-youn, Kim Hyun-joo, and Ryu Kyung-soo are the main actors. JUNG E is now available only on Netflix. It was made public on January 20, 2023.
