“Jung-eun” Opens a New Era for Korean SF Films


Netflix has unveiled the main poster of director Yeon Sang-ho’s new film “Jung-eun.”

Netflix’s original film “Jung-eun” (directed by Yeon Sang-ho) is a science fiction film about people trying to develop the best battle A.I. by cloning the brain of legendary mercenary “Jung-eun” to end the war in a shelter that moved out of the devastated Earth due to climate change.

The main poster released shows the crisis facing future mankind and the three characters struggling in their own ways. First, the face of the best A.I. combat mercenary standing with a gun over the broken lab window and the best leader with both combat and tactical skills catches the eye, raising questions about A.I. at the border between humans and robots. In addition, Seo Hyun (Kang Soo-yeon), the team leader of the Cronoid Research Institute, and Sang Hoon (Ryu Kyung-soo), the head of the research institute, who develop Jung-i, amplify curiosity about what narrative and purpose they each have. The copy of “A.I. Combat Soldier Jung Escape from Humanity” raises expectations for narrative, suggesting an incident between A.I. Jung-eun and a human trying to use it.

The poster alone suggests spectacular cinematic fun, and tells the story of people at the Cronoid Research Institute who develop combat-type A.I. “I.N.” and “I.N.” at the border of humans and robots, a world view where cyberpunk genre’s unique dystopia and cutting-edge technology coexist. Director Yeon Sang-ho, who is in charge of directing, said, “At the same time as asking about the existence of A.I., I started to create a work that combines visual elements and actions that only the SF genre has,” signaling not only genre fun but also interesting stories and in-depth messages.

Furthermore, “Ijeong” is a work in which there are things such as unexpectedness from relationships and unexpectedness from humans to non-humans. Also, I hope it will be a work that surprises the audience with the unprecedented imagination of each work, and raises questions about director Sang-ho’s new worldview, which has thrown various philosophical topics.

Produced by Climax Studios, which has been praised by many fans at home and abroad for producing “D.P.” “Hell,” and is expected to be released on Netflix on Jan. 20, 2023, as a science fiction genre that always presents new and surprising actors Kang Soo-yeon, Kim Hyun-joo, and Ryu Kyung-soo, who do not need modifiers.
