How was the ending of the film ‘JUNG E’?
As per sources, ‘Jung E’ is known to have a bittersweet ending. In 2135, as a result of climate change and depleted resources, humans were forced to relocate to space colony bunkers. For forty years, three colonies have fought together as one, known as the Adrian Republic, against the Allied Forces of Earth. During an operation to destroy a fuel rod in an Adrian stronghold, the legendary Allied mercenary Captain Yun Jung-Yi volunteers to take part. She has a golden opportunity to shoot a game-winning shot, but a child’s keychain diverts her attention. It turns out she’s a robot because her hand got shot off.
Yun gives up, and it’s discovered that she’s in a computer simulation. The real Yun had bungled the mission 35 years before and gone into a coma. Dr. Yun Seo-hyun, Yun’s daughter and head of the Kronoid Lab research team, successfully cloned her consciousness so that it could be uploaded into androids over and over again.Captain Yun’s brain map has been studied over the past five years in an effort to use the information to build the most advanced artificially intelligent combat robot.
The “Jung E” software will be completed once the android has broken free of the virtual environment. Kronos plans on producing the elite, loyal battle robot for the Allied Forces to give them an upper hand in the coming conflict. Captain Yun will be immortalized as a result. It is revealed in a flashback that Captain Yun joined the mercenary ranks to help fund the treatment of her daughter Seo-lung Hyun’s malignancy. Captain Yun fell into a coma the same day that Seo-hyun underwent surgery.
Seo-hyun blames herself, even now as an adult, for her mother’s inability to enjoy life. A doctor tells Seo-hyun that her cancer has spread to the rest of her organs after conducting an ethics test to ensure she is not an android. A terminal illness has been diagnosed, and she has been given three months to survive. Like her mother, she could transfer her mind to a synthetic body at no cost, but this would open the door for corporations to profit from her brain data and enable the creation of clones.
Kronoid Chairman visits the lab to tell Seo-hyun that the Adrian War is over and that all weapon production will stop, including production of the battle AIs. Jung E tells Seo-hyun that her daughter gave her the distracting keychain as a source of power and protection. Her daughter had told her not to lose it, so she had to look for it. Seo-hyun erases all traces of herself from Jung E’s mind after realizing this is the reason she was unable to complete her task. Seo-hyun reveals her true identity to the final Jung E android before the simulations are terminated, erasing any other original data to prevent it from being utilized to make other Kronoid goods, such as Captain Yun sex dolls.
In the simulation’s final iteration, Jung E gets shot, but with Seo-help, Hyun manages to get away before her corpse is destroyed. Seo-hyun places her consciousness inside a simple robot, and they take off on a train. Seo-hyun is killed as he engages in combat with Director Kim, who turns out to be an android controlled by the young Kronoid chairman. Seo-hyun advises Jung E to move on after Kim’s death, saying that she needs to focus on herself. When Jung E finally breaks free of the lab’s simulations, he finds himself staring out into a vast, open, mountainous terrain.
