Heat Vision reports that Yung will play a ninja Joe called Jinx.
She'll join Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum in the sequel, though much of the original film's cast reportedly are not returning. Yung can be seen in District 13: Ultimatum, which according to Heat Vision featured a scene where "she took on corrupt cops with a knife in her ponytail." That works.
Jinx's origin details tells us how, while she was on vacation in Japan, she "discovered her familial ties to a ninja clan known as the Arashikage, and was officially initiated into the clan. She was then recruited by Snake-Eyes, a fellow ninja and member of the G.I. Joe Team."
