Jung_E (2023) | Transcript

On an uninhabitable 22nd-century Earth, the outcome of a civil war hinges on cloning the brain of an elite soldier to create a robot mercenary.
Jung_E (2023)

Set in the 22nd century, climate change has caused the planet to become uninhabitable and humans live within a man-made shelter. A war takes place within the shelter. Jung Yi is the elite leader of the allied forces. She becomes the subject of a brain cloning experiment. The cloning experiment is a potential key to win the war.

IN THE NEAR FUTURE

THE SEA LEVEL RISES DUE TO RAPID CLIMATE CHANGE

AND HUMANS DECIDE TO MOVE TO SPACE

SPACE

AFTER BUILDING SHELTERS BETWEEN EARTH AND THE MOON’S ORBITAL PLANES

[distant explosions]

THEY SPEND DECADES MIGRATING CITIZENS TO THE 80 OR SO SHELTERS

SHELTERS

AS THE HUMANS SETTLE DOWN…

SHELTERS NO. 8, 12, AND 13

DECLARE THEMSELVES THE ADRIAN REPUBLIC

AND THEY BEGIN ATTACKING EARTH AND THE OTHER SHELTERS

ADRIAN REPUBLIC

[ominous music playing]

THIS LEADS TO DECADES OF WAR

BETWEEN THE ALLIED FORCE AND THE ADRIAN REPUBLIC

WAR

HUMANS LEFT ON EARTH CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MUNITIONS

[music fades out]

[man] Team 45, Team 45, do you copy?

[panting] This is Captain Yun Jung-yi.

[man] Captain Yun. After that explosion, are you still alive?

How else can I be answering?

[man] How is your team? Did you reach the fuel rod?

I don’t see anyone else.

[sighing] It’s not looking good.

What is that?

[man] We have intel that the Adrian’s new ZIMBO is there.

Ugh, maybe lead with that?

[man] The e-battery is attached to the rear of the ZIMBO.

That’s where you need to attack it. The rear.

[heavy gunfire]

[dramatic music playing]

[whirring]

[grunting]

[ships taking off]

[man] Backup forces will be there soon.

When’s that exactly?

[woman] How many times has it been now?

Stay focused, all right?

[man 1] Check on the rail gun.

[man 2] Yeah, on it.

[sighing] She keeps failing at the same point.

[woman] That’s what I’m saying.

Should I send the data to the lab for a detailed analysis?

[man 1] Yes, send it over right away.

Okay.

[man 2] Team Leader Yun.

Ma’am.

[man 1] Why does this keep happening?

[woman] I don’t know. But I see why she was considered a legendary mercenary.

Did you see how many robots it destroyed on its way to the fail point?

[man 1] Seriously.

[woman] You don’t think it’s because the enemy’s been poorly programmed?

[man 2] Oh, we should tweak how the simulation starts next time.

No, no, no, no, no, no.

Listen, we have to keep the start the same.

The simulation has to match the real life situation in order to map the brain.

Let’s all call it a day.

There are important guests arriving soon.

Yes.

Of course, ma’am.

[woman] Yes, ma’am.

[tablet beeping]

Oh man.

[clicking]

Here you go.

[woman] Thanks.

[devices beeping]

[man 1] Let’s get moving.

[tense music playing]

Should I send this to the Technical Support Team?

Yeah, looks good.

[dramatic music rises]

Before we go, we’ll finish things up.

Okay.

[music ends]

[calming piano music playing]

[muffled recorded announcement]

Excuse me.

Come here.

Does this look fresh to you?

Directly from the boat.

I can see…

it appears to have a rotten expression.

[snickers]

You shouldn’t be shocked.

I’m kidding.

A joke.

[exaggerated laugh]

Keep up the good work.

[exhales nervously]

Right. Let’s get a move on.

You all know how important today is.

Oh, Team Leader Yun, you’re here.

[dramatically] Thank you for your hard work.

Director.

Is all of this preparation really necessary?

They’re a different generation.

Our elders value these things more than you think.

[sighing]

I hope you aren’t nervous. Are you okay?

Or did you not sleep well?

I’m fine.

Should I be concerned?

Because you seem to be on edge.

This guy?

Me?

[scoffing dramatically]

Presentations need showmanship, so what you’re sensing is my focus, Team Leader Yun.

I won’t be blandly reading like some presentation amateur.

I intend to be humorous also.

And treat our honored guests with cocktails and delicious food as well.

This guarantees our company their full support.

You get it, right? Hmm?

[nervously] Hello, Mr. Kro… [gulps]

I’m the proud director of… of Kronoid. Kim Sang-hoon is my name.

Please enjoy the show.

Ah.

[computer beeping]

[Sang-hoon in video] Year 2135.

[dramatic music playing]

The rising sea level, depletion of resources, and the pollution of Earth forced mankind to look for a new way to survive.

Humankind found refuge from the uninhabitable environment in shelters they built in space.

However, only a short time later, space shelters number 8, 12, and 13 declared themselves the Adrian Republic, which started a civil war that threatened Earth and peaceful life in the shelters.

I did the narration on this myself.

[narration] And this war between the Allied Force and the Adrian has been going on for the last 40 years.

I put this edit together and I also picked the music.

Whoo-whoo!

[narration] …combat AIs for the war.

Founded in the year 2130 CE, with a team of top researchers utilizing…

We know this already. How about we get to the point?

All right.

Just go on, skip it. Skip it. Skip to the end.

[narration] …legendary mercenary of the Adrian Civil War.

The pride of Korea.

Captain Yun Jung-yi.

Captain Yun Jung-yi led Team 45 to victory in Squadron 8.

After countless successful missions, she secured her place as the war’s greatest hero.

Shall I fast-forward more for you?

[narration] Thirty-five years ago, Captain Yun Jung-yi joined the mission to blow up a fuel rod in Adrian’s Shelter B-25.

But the mission was a failure and she ended up in a coma.

Kronoid, with permission from her family, spared no expense on state-of-the-art treatments to keep her alive, then mapped her neural cortex and converted it to data.

With this, we will develop the most advanced combat command AI ever, equipped with the tactical and combat skills of Jung-yi,

as well as her great loyalty and determination.

Yes.

This new program is aptly named “JUNG_E.”

[dramatic music ends]

We developed it so that the spirit of Captain Yun would live on.

Ah. The daughter of Captain… The daughter of legendary Captain Yun, Dr. Yun Seo-hyun, is leading the project’s team.

And now, I’ll allow the team leader to explain.

You’re up.

Don’t be nervous, okay?

Whoo! Whoo! [coughs awkwardly]

I’d like to show you the data copied from Ms. Yun’s brain.

We are developing an AI comprised of the real-life Captain Yun on her final mission, focusing on her combat skills and experience using the data collected from her brain.

[beeping]

[panting]

To achieve this, the android operating from the collected brain data completes a simulation.

The behavioral pattern is stored and analyzed.

From our simulations, we have activated the network of neural pathways shown here.

[inhaling] Hang on. The pathways should be in green instead.

Because our projects are so easy to green-light. You know?

[mimics bell ringing]

Can you be serious?

That was one of my jokes.

We will use a simulation to isolate these areas of the brain, and extract the combat memory data.

The goal here is to create an AI with unmatched performance.

So, how did it do?

Did the robot escape in the simulation?

Not at the moment.

We have to remember, if Yun Jung-yi completed the final mission, we would have won the war.

Her failure is why the Adrian Civil War is still going on after 40 years.

The Korean mercenary…

She was popular at the time.

But sentiments have changed.

A lot of citizens think she’s the main reason the Adrian Civil War has dragged on for so long.

Ah, that is still up for debate.

Still, our combat AI is an improvement.

We are only taking the greatest parts of Captain Yun and extracting it all to be used…

Then why does it keep failing to escape when it’s in the battle simulation?

Why on earth would you model a combat AI off her?

I would prefer a soldier who can complete the mission instead.

[Dr. Yun] She will.

I am certain.

Captain Yun Jung-yi will succeed in her original mission very soon.

On that, you have my word. Furthermore…

Her lost glory as an Allied Forces hero will be reclaimed.

[sighs deeply]

[classical string music playing]

[beeping]

Whoo!

That’s an original Park Ho.

Yun Jung-yi warrior edition.

Beautiful, right?

Speaking of beautiful, look at that sunset.

[sucks in breath]

[gasps]

You came early.

It’s adorable.

I learned that the people of the past thought that a product’s design was just as valuable as its usefulness.

And that would make sense in a time of such abundance.

Right.

I really admire the passion you showed them.

[exclaiming proudly]

Unbelievable passion, really.

Those geezers were overwhelmed.

You pretty much sealed the deal for the project.

They pulled me aside and said it’s a green light if we clear the simulation.

That’s good news.

Please, have a seat.

Cold brew, Doctor?

Only the best from the past.

No, thank you.

I’m processing 17 before we destroy the data.

Processing them?

Hmm.

Do you find that that’s valuable, Team Leader Yun?

Does it help us define the brain analysis?

Good question.

Having more information improves our chances.

Mm-mm-mmm.

For you.

I hope you feel accomplished.

The greatest thing we’ve built is in your mother’s name, and it might bring an end to the war! [chuckles]

It’s the chairman’s victory.

[sighs]

Wow, he truly is a great man.

The chairman and you go back a long time, right?

It’s only been ten years since I’ve started working for him.

You’ve known him since you were young because of the history with your mother.

Well, it’s more like he’s looked after me since I was young.

The JUNG_E project is definitely back on.

Forget what that old fart said before.

Captain Yun Jung-yi was easily the greatest combat soldier in her day.

She only failed in that one measly mission. [mimics people blabbing]

He’s just jealous.

He wants to be beloved.

The only reason your mother is still alive is because of our great chairman, who has expectations for the project that are so high that I…[exaggerated crying] I get emotional.

You have my full support.

Don’t worry, Director.

And now… I really must go.

To begin processing.

Oh yes, of course.

Uh.

The chairman will be visiting any day.

So keep up the good work.

Go get ’em!

[soft electronic humming]

[powering up]

ACTIVATE

[buzzer sounding]

[frightened gasps]

[man] Uh, Ms. Yun.

[exclaiming painfully]

Ms. Yun, just relax now please.

[grunting]

Ms. Yun, can you hear me?

The mic is working, right? I think she can hear me.

Ms. Yun?

[gasping]

[horrified screams]

[whimpering]

[screaming continues]

[grunting]

BRAIN MAP SENSORY CONTROL PAIN LEVEL DECREASING

[relieved sigh]

There, that should ease your pain, okay?

[JUNG_E panting]

Now let’s calm down and talk.

What am I? I can’t feel my body.

Listen, just stay calm, okay?

Um, uh, Ms… Ms. Yun?

Where… Where am I? Where am I?

What have you done? I don’t… I don’t understand!

[shouting] Who the hell are you?

WILL TO FIGHT INCREASING

Let me go, you monsters! What in the hell have you done?

I think she’s unresponsive. [chuckles]

I’ll get you bastards!

DEACTIVATE

[screaming] I’ll kill you all!

[sighs]

Destroy the brain. Unable to process.

[clunking, powering down]

[electronic trilling]

[man] It seems like a waste to destroy them every time, though.

You did well, for your first time.

[chuckles modestly] Really? I didn’t really do all that much.

[laughs]

[Dr. Yun] So I hear you wanted to move to our team.

Ah, yes.

Truth be told, I’m a big fan of Captain Yun.

[laughs] When I was young, she was a real-life superhero.

[Dr. Yun chuckles] Superhero?

The real reason that my mother kept fighting in the war, it was to help me.

Sorry?

When I was young, they found a tumor in my lungs.

The treatments were expensive, and… we were poor.

To help pay for my treatments, my mother became a mercenary.

[sighs]

I was terrified that one day, my mother would die fighting in the war, trying to save my life with hers.

Every time she fought, I cried.

Hmm.

The day I got the surgery… was the last day she went into action.

Ah…

I always wondered… does my mother regret sacrificing her life to save her daughter?

And does she resent me because of it?

[inhaling sharply] So why haven’t you asked?

[melancholy music playing]

What?

There in processing, you could ask.

If it fails a simulation, you could ask it then.

If it ever resented its daughter.

[inhaling sharply] You’re right.

I could do that.

Yeah.

Excuse me, Jae-kyung, I have the ethics test today.

So please finish up the report on 17’s processing.

[groaning] Oh, the ethics test. Yes, ma’am.

Hm.

Thank you, ma’am. For sharing your story.

Honestly, she really was my hero! [laughs awkwardly]

Don’t be scared to tell me more!

Hoo!

[chuckles excitedly]

[automated announcement] Train approaching.

Please watch out.

The doors are opening.

The Central 09 train is self-driving.

The doors are closing.

The train is now departing.

[melancholy music playing]

Thank you.

Thank you.

Here.

[civilians continue chattering]

[girl] Mom, you’ll come back. Right?

Of course. Now you be good, and listen to auntie while you’re there.

[sniffles]

[mother] Don’t cry, it’s nothing.

Come on. Don’t cry.

[train braking]

[mother] It’s not like you won’t see me again.

Okay?

Seo-hyun.

Mommy has to go on another mission.

So I can’t be at your side when they perform the surgery, honey.

You have to stay strong, okay?

You’re mom’s brave girl, right?

Yeah?

[melancholy music continues]

Ma… will you hurry back?

After the surgery, will you be here?

Oh, of course.

I’ll be gone, but honey, I swear I’ll come back in no time.

When I finish the mission, I will be right by your side.

All right, sweetie?

Now give me a lucky cheek rub, okay?

[chuckles] Yeah.

[sighs] I love my girl.

[laughs]

My baby.

[both sigh]

[both laugh contentedly]

We’ll take good care of her.

[playful growl]

[both laugh]

[Captain Yun] I’ll see you soon. You can do it. Okay? Okay?

[blowing kisses]

[music fades out]

[woman] This is the eighth ethics test of Team Leader Yun Seo-hyun of Kronoid Lab.

Ms. Yun, have you ever had a pet?

I have not.

[woman] Have you ever felt attached to a product or an object?

Yes.

Have you ever named the object?

Yes.

[woman] Have you ever composed poetry longer than three lines looking at the sunset?

Yes.

Have you ever bought an original artwork at a price that is too expensive for your means?

I have not.

[doctor] Okay, the test results will be sent to the company in two to three days.

More importantly, the cancer has metastasized from the location where you previously had surgery. I’m afraid it’s not good news.

Ms. Yun, the cancer has spread to your major organs.

As I told you before, this area here will inevitably continue to spread.

It’s impossible to perform surgery at this point.

[hollow laugh]

It was always going to happen.

That surgery I got as a kid was for nothing.

[doctor] Pardon?

It’s nothing.

Doctor… how much time do I have now?

You have three months.

The best course of action would be to copy your brain right away and transfer over to a prosthetic body.

These days, the law guarantees equal human rights to those who choose this procedure.

Assuming you choose Type A.

But it does come at a steep price.

Type A.

It’s too steep for me.

It includes a cerebral storage backup before we transfer the brain.

Also secures your human rights and covers a single body prosthetic.

There are other options available, like Type B, but rights like marriage, freedom of movement, and adoption are prohibited.

With Type B, the government requires compliance that you will allow them to access your brain data.

And then, if both of those options are too much, there’s Type C.

And that…

With Type C, you don’t get treated as a human being at all.

Honestly, it’s really not all that bad.

The main difference with Type C is you surrender ownership of your brain data, allowing certified companies to own it.

And since countless clones will be created with it, you will no longer be an individual, so that is…

The main upside being, the Type C prosthetic is free of charge though.

A data use credit covers the transfer amount.

The contract your mother, Captain Yun Jung-yi, signed with Kronoid was for Type C.

Let me think about it.

Since I’m here, I hope to see my mother before I go.

Yeah, please, of course.

And I’m always close by if you have any questions.

Thanks.

[powering down]

[thunder rumbling]

[somber music playing]

[man] Ms. Yun barely made it out alive.

She’s in critical condition.

But you must decide right away, before her cerebral cortex is damaged.

There’s still time to save the brain.

[sighs]

If you choose to sign the agreement, we’ll cover Ms. Yun’s treatment and her daughter Seo-hyun’s education and living expenses.

Please place your palm here when you’ve looked it over.

[sobbing]

[whimpering]

With Ms. Yun’s brain data, we can make a product that will end this war, once and for all.

We’ll let the company know that you agreed to go forth with the project.

And I’ll make sure that the money for your living expenses is sent soon.

Hi there, Seo-hyun.

Guess what?

I have a present for you.

Your mom will be a hero forever.

Would you like that, Seo-hyun?

[sniffles]

[thunder rumbling

NO. 18 READY

Eighteen is good to go.

How’s our connection?

The connection looks good, Team Leader.

[chuckling]

[exhales deeply]

[woman] Number 18 is in place.

Min-jae.

Yes?

Labs A, B, and C, double check them.

Yes, ma’am.

Can you repeat those number again?

A clear check on all numbers.

The docking is complete.

[man] Okay.

Prepping simulation.

[snapping] Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

[sighs]

Isn’t it time we try something different?

Let’s shoot it through the leg before starting.

[gasps]

[ominous music playing]

You heard him. You better do it.

[tablet beeping]

RAIL GUN CONTROLS FIRE

Doing the simulation the same each time is only slowing us down.

Go ahead.

Now we can begin the simulation.

[JUNG_E breathing raggedly]

[groaning]

PAIN LEVEL INCREASING

The same thing happened when 17 was shot.

This is the neural area for pain.

I want you to color the pain area red.

Change it to strawberry.

Humor. Humor.

[sighing] I’ll show you strawberry.

PAIN LEVEL INCREASING

[straining]

[mechanical footsteps approaching]

[grunting]

[intense music playing]

[grunting]

Green light, green, full speed ahead.

[crying out in pain]

[shuddering breaths]

WILL TO FIGHT DECREASING PAIN LEVEL INCREASING

Her red is spreading rapidly.

I fear this one is over.

Great. That was disappointing.

[panting]

[woman] Something is happening.

UNIDENTIFIED AREA INCREASING

[groaning softly]

[yelling]

What happened?

[JUNG_E yelling]

What part is that?

[woman] One second. I’ll check.

[grunting]

[woman] The mobility here’s higher than the green brainwave signal.

[man] It’s a new area.

[grunting]

[panting]

[gunshot]

No, no, not the head!

Now that brain is useless.

[inhaling angrily]

[shouting] Hurry up! Go in there and retrieve it!

I need to see the replay.

Yes, sir.

There, which part was that?

[man] Analyzing now.

UNIDENTIFIED AREA INCREASING

That’s a new area of activation.

It’s something, right?

Well, from what I see, we just found our combat AI.

The color should be… yellow as a pineapple.

[yelling] Huh? You hear me?

[sigh]

A pineapple.

UNIDENTIFIED AREA INCREASING

[sighs deeply]

Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.

I need you at 100%. The HQ briefing is tomorrow.

[suspenseful music playing]

[Sang-hoon] Kronoid.

The director of Kronoid.

Hello, I’m Kim Sang-hoon, the director of Kronoid Laboratory.

Hm.

[chuckles]

[automated announcement] We will soon arrive at your set destination, Kronoid HQ.

[music fades out]

[automated announcement] Welcome, everyone, to Kronoid HQ.

Under the vision of moving forward into the future, Kronoid is endeavoring to develop technology in diverse areas and provide quality experiences so that future generations can…

Has the chairman arrived yet?

[woman] I’ll check, sir.

[laughing]

[laughing continues]

His schedule was full today.

How are you? You’re Director Kim.

Lee Se-yeon, Managing Director.

I’m the new head of Kronoid’s Product Development Department.

It’s so nice to finally meet.

Okay.

The chairman won’t be here?

Won’t he want to receive an update on the research we’ve done?

He’s asked me to see your presentation instead.

And I assure you, I will relay the information.

This comes from the chairman?

[chuckles awkwardly]

Could you tell me your name one more time?

Lee Se-yeon, as I said before.

I’m the head of product development here…

[yelling]

Since when do we have a product development department?

Kronoid’s a military AI development firm. What products are you working on?

[titters]

[laughs heartily]

It’s so funny.

You can’t hide your feelings either. Am I right, huh?

[laughs]

Pardon me?

Oh, never mind.

Due to a conflict, unfortunately the chairman can’t be here.

However, I’m excited to see it.

He said he’ll be visiting the lab very soon.

Don’t worry. No need to be nervous, hm?

[hissing]

[tense music playing]

Such simple minds.

After all the money the chairman invested in developing a combat AI, they’re going to downsize weapons development now?

I will keep his dream alive.

Don’t you agree?

That vapid woman knows nothing.

Knows nothing about the chairman.

Nothing at all.

[tense music ends]

It’s pretty cool, right? Look.

Yes. This latest version is a marked upgrade from the previous test body.

So how well do the AI implement the yellow area?

The test version mapped it well.

After today, we’ll know more.

I’m so excited! So excited!

Director!

The chairman has just arrived. He’s in your office.

He’s here? I’m on my way.

Oh…

Is it okay if I take this one? I think the chairman would like it.

Go ahead. Of course.

Team Leader.

Team Leader Yun.

When did you last take the ethics test?

The ethics test?

You know, the test that identifies humans from our friend here.

A couple of days ago.

I make it a point to never skip it.

[laugh]

The chairman was wondering.

He must be worried about it because Yun Jung-yi was your mother.

He’s very thorough man.

The chairman as alway… [electronic beeping]

[whirring]

[gasping softly]

[giggling] Surprise.

[giggling]

Hello, Mr. Chairman.

What brings you here? We weren’t expecting you.

I came to check on the operations of our lab, among other things.

And I have news for you.

The JUNG_E AI is close to being completed.

We are currently verifying previously unknown neural sectors.

A final simulation will…

Yeah, yeah, the combat AI.

HQ has the combat AI data already.

Our head researchers have made improvements.

[Dr. Yun] Oh…

Of course, sir.

We’ll do our best here as well.

[chairman] Seo-hyun.

It’s not necessary anymore.

Sir?

The age of weapon contracting is over.

It looks like the Adrian Civil War is coming to an end.

There’s a treaty between the Allied Force and the Adrian Republic.

I remember the old munition companies.

They all did the same thing.

They made heaters from all their raw materials.

[sighs] We will do now as they did then.

Our research up to this point wasn’t useless.

The massive strides in brain replication allowed us to explore other sectors.

Combat AI?

[chuckles] Won’t serve us on the road ahead.

We need to develop housekeeping and service worker AIs now.

Tell me… was Captain Yun experienced at something other than combat?

Because that would prove useful.

So our time here at the lab… is coming to an end?

Uh-huh, so use your time wisely.

It’s depressing.

I know it all too well.

I used to be obsessed with brain replication.

[groans] Rich people like me seem to think about nothing else.

The moment that brain replication was discovered, my first thought was…

“Yeah, now I can live forever.”

I really thought so.

So my first experiment was brain replication.

To create a version of me that was immortal.

It led to my first robot.

Prototype Sang here.

[laughs]

And then it happened.

After the brain replication, I had to transfer over and couldn’t do it.

You know why?

This guy right here. This wire shell.

It didn’t feel real.

It’s alien.

It just ends up being hollow.

No matter how close we get.

It’s like… having your mom’s voice on an electric rice cooker.

[imitating steam]

“Honey, come get your rice. I made it just for you.”

A robot can’t make it like Mom’s rice, I can guarantee you that.

Huh?

It’s not funny?

I’m just joking. Joking. [laughs]

Sir, if I may,

allow my mother’s project to go on.

Give us the opportunity to finish…

There’s no need.

The project is already done.

After you wrap it all up, switch over to household android AIs.

I’ll tell Sang-hoon that too.

He’ll most likely be a wreck.

He’s the type who won’t easily admit to failure.

I know that better than anyone.

Be nice to him, even if he’s on edge.

I’m going to dispose of him anyway, once the project is wrapped up.

I’m going to talk to Sang-hoon all right.

Understand? Hm?

Seo-hyun, give up this obsession.

…always two steps…

Hello, chairman, when did you arrive?

Did my portrait birth you here?

[stifled laughter]

[laughing hysterically]

Sang-hoon, your sense of humor is the best.

In all of Adrian.

[continues laughing]

That is all. Goodbye. [laughing]

Aren’t you going to speak to both of us?

Oh, I saw her. That’s good enough.

Now, enough joking around.

Fill me in on JUNG_E.

Yes, sir. This is our latest prototype…

Yes, you did well, you did.

[Sang-hoon mimicking robotic beeping]

[grunting]

[grunting]

[yelling] Why!

How come she always dies in the exact same place! [shouting hysterically]

During the simulation, did the brain show any yellow?

[clears throat]

No, sir.

Sorry. It hasn’t showed up since that first time.

After all these tries, you’ve failed to isolate the area?

We are limited by the current technology.

It will take a while. The process is complicated.

Team Leader Yun.

Are you happy with how the AI is progressing?

[man] Um, Director, uh…

[clears throat] Sir, uh, Kronoid HQ,

they seem satisfied with how the current combat AI is performing…

Well, I’m not, all right? [yelling] I’m not satisfied!

Did you know HQ is trying to haphazardly wrap up our project?

[sighs] They’re clearly disappointed in us, and now all of you want to prove them right?

Get it to Termination Advisory.

We will isolate this mysterious area at any cost.

Ah.

Keep the arms and legs. I want 22 whole.

Yes, sir.

[Sang-hoon muttering] Unbelievable.

[door closes]

Hello, Director.

Suspend motor functions.

Yes, sir.

Hello, everyone.

Hello.

Yes, sir.

Um… Um, like… Um, cut?

Did I stutter?

Cut the arm off. The arm. [yelling] Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm!

Yes, sir. I’m on it.

The first time it was shot in the left leg, right?

Yes.

Who the hell are you, you son of a…

[grunting]

[gunshots continue]

Get it back online.

Sir, it’s not turning on.

What?

I took over administrative control.

No more for today.

[exhaling angrily]

[intense music playing]

[all gasping]

You better turn that thing back on.

[sternly] We’re done.

[yelling] Do it now, Team Leader Yun!

Director…

The chairman has requested your presence at HQ.

[exclaims in frustration]

Um, ma’am, are you okay?

The director has completely lost it.

What a lunatic. Crazy.

Everyone can go.

Assemble all the data we collected.

Let’s finish up the combat AI project.

As for the data…

send it to me right away.

[all grunting in assent]

Of course, ma’am.

All right.

Let’s go.

Hello, ma’am.

I’ve copied and exported 22’s data.

Uh, uh… Good!

[nervous laugh] That’s great.

I was just prepping 23, making improvements.

[flustered laugh] Uh… No, wait!

Oh, wait. Wait, ma’am!

Oh, please don’t, uh, get the wrong idea.

I swear this isn’t what it looks like.

[angrily] You pervert!

If I could explain, it would clear things up, I swear.

It’s not what it looks like?

Uh, yes. Orders from headquarters.

[choking]

It’s a product development for Captain Yun.

They told me to test it out. It came from HQ.

[stuttering] It’s true. I promise.

Product development?

Yes. Well, she was a war hero. Sort of an idol.

And headquarters, um, they think there’s value in exploring a product with a sexual application.

That it will make serious money. [laughing uncomfortably]

She was popular!

[Jae-kyung straining]

I’m sorry, but the bereaved gave their permission!

Oh, she’s Type C. Type C!

It’s a product that can be used for anything!

[music becomes melancholy]

[Jae-kyung] It’s… Ma’am?

[Jae-kyung sighs exasperatedly]

I…

[melancholy music fades out]

HQ gave the order.

The simulations will only go on until tomorrow.

Our time’s up here.

[sighs]

They told me that our combat AI was just a trial.

But that the…

The company will be using what we developed in a different way.

Household AI bullshit…

Hello, Captain.

Can you hear me okay?

Where am I?

You made it out.

Captain Yun, listen…

You’re injured.

You were captured and the enemy tortured you.

[exhales sharply]

So what’s my condition right now?

I’m numb everywhere.

I can’t see, either.

We were lucky to get you out of there.

The damage from the torture is critical, and you will die any moment.

[shuddering breaths]

You will pass peacefully.

[somber piano music playing]

Almost like you’re sleeping.

Just breathe.

Pass away calmly.

[JUNG_E] Wait.

One second, please.

There’s something that I need to know first.

[gasping]

Yes?

It’s just… my daughter had surgery today.

The surgery, did it go well?

UNIDENTIFIED AREA INCREASING

[crying softly]

All I wanted was to be there by her side after the battle.

[shuddering breaths]

Your daughter’s cancer… is in remission.

She’s feeling better.

Ah.

Seo-hyun’s okay?

[sigh of relief]

Oh, thank God.

Oh, that’s such a relief.

My baby.

[JUNG_E crying]

[groaning]

This morning…

my daughter gave me a doll as a gift right before she went into surgery.

[sighs deeply] It reminded me of her, my sweet girl.

Mmm.

The doll, it was supposed to bring me luck.

[young Dr. Yun] I made a special wish on it.

It’s going to protect you.

[Captain Yun laughing] What?

Oh, wow.

I’m going to take good care of this, I promise.

[sobs]

The doll. I lost it while I was fighting.

I couldn’t believe I lost it.

I couldn’t let it go.

My little girl…

she gave me that doll, and I lost it.

Captain Yun, can you hear me?

It may feel like you’re listening to my voice in a dream, but I assure you, this is no dream.

Stay alert.

Hear my voice, and listen closely.

Captain, you will be in a coma-like state immediately after this battle.

Researchers will replicate your brain, extracting the data.

They want to model a combat AI after you.

Okay, everyone, thanks so much for all your hard work.

[woman] Undocking now.

Uh, Director.

The results are odd.

I see here the brain’s response is weaker than before.

It looks like our Captain Yun has a very feeble mind.

[noncommittally] Good work. I hope all our paths cross again in the future.

[muttering angrily] All that hard work from our chairman.

Those simple-minded assholes will never understand him.

[suspenseful music playing]

[man sighs]

Let’s get this paired.

[woman] 30% complete.

Oh, the director’s back.

Hey, you. Pull up the replay again.

Yes, sir.

Right there.

Now zoom in. Hurry up.

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

The head, zoom in more.

It missed her head.

Sound the alarm.

[alarm blaring]

[automated alert] The emergency alarm has been activated.

All facilities will be shut down shortly.

All personnel, move quickly and safely to the panic room.

What’s that all about?

No idea.

This never happened before.

[automated alert] The emergency alarm has been activated.

All facilities will be shut down shortly.

All personnel…

[Sang-hoon] Min-jae, tell me we have its location.

Not yet.

Have the police been alerted?

The alarm was triggered so they’re on their way.

How long will that take?

They’ll arrive in five minutes.

That’s more than enough time for an escape.

I say we test out the combat AI.

Director?

Team Leader Yun.

After everything the chairman has done for you, how could you double-cross him like this?

[yelling] Take another step and your daughter will die!

I erased all the data about her daughter.

Why?

She’s free!

Don’t worry about me.

I don’t have much time left anyway.

Please… I’m begging you to go.

You should only worry about yourself.

You’re free now.
