Netflix has begun rolling out its international content in 2023, and next up is the Korean film Jung_E. Read on to learn all there is to know about the movie, including who’s in the cast.

Jung_E is a science fiction film created by Yeon Sang-ho. Not only did he direct the movie, but he also wrote the screenplay. You might recognize Yeon Sang-ho from his previous work, such as the box office hits Train to Busan and Peninsula and the popular Netflix series Hellbound.

The story is set in a post-apocalyptic near-future, where Earth has been ruined by drastic climate change, making it no longer habitable. The human race is then forced into man-made shelters in outer space, but a civil war breaks out there and continues for a long time. To end the war, the brain of a courageous soldier is cloned by an A.I. lab to create the best A.I. combat mercenary.

So, who can you expect to see in the Korean movie? Find out right below!
