It looks like production wrapped in January 2022 based on an Instagram post from one of the leading stars. On Jan. 27, Ryu Kyung-soo posted a photo of a production chair with the movie’s title and logo on it. The caption was in Korean, but we managed to translate it into English. The English translation reads,

"More than anything else, it was a very, very, very fun filming that made me realize that the process is precious. I wanted to keep going, hoping that the filming wouldn’t end… If there is a meeting, in the end parting is… ㅠ Conversation summary written in handwriting…We ask for your interest, anticipation, and love for the movie ‘Jungi’. -Thank you so much for the coffee tea!"

Since the film contains many sci-fi elements, the post-production process was pretty lengthy.
