Park Shin-hye journeys through a ruined Seoul in Sisyphus: The Myth
New promos have been released for JTBC’s upcoming fantasy mystery Sisyphus: The Myth, including new stills of Jo Seung-woo(Forest of Secrets 2) and a video teaser featuring Park Shin-hye (Memories of the Alhambra).
The story of Sisyphus: The Myth tells us about beings who have hidden their existence among humans and engineer Jo Seung-woo is on a mission to uncover their true identities. Revered as a genius within the field of engineering, Jo was enrolled into KAIST (the Korean equivalent to MIT in terms of prestige) at the age of 17 and now runs his own research company called Quantum and Time. Despite his successful career though, he is emotionally stuck in the past. And he carries tremendous regret about how his brother suddenly died and how he failed to support his brother when he needed him.
However, Jo Seung-woo’s investigations about the mysterious beings puts him in great danger and this development is somehow alerted to warrior Park Shin-hye as well. Coming from what seems like another world, she travels a far distance and wars challenges along the way in order to find Jo Seung-woo and rescue him.
In the newly released teaser, we get a closer look at Park Shin-hye’s character as she walks through a post-apocalyptic Seoul, in what seems to be an alternate or future world. The city appears to have been destroyed a long time ago and all sorts of plants and fauna have grown through and among the ruins.
Coming across an intact BTS poster, Park takes off her gas mask to appreciate it better and remarks, “Nice! A special item!” In commemoration, she puts on her earphones and turns on BTS’s Spring Day which plays over the rest of the teaser. Mouthing along to the lyrics, Park Shin-hye walks through the debris-filled streets and a fallen sign reveals that this area was once the famous shopping district of Myeongdong in Seoul. As if browsing through shops herself, Park stops to check herself in a compact mirror and she steps up onto a pile of concrete to take in the scenery. The teaser comes to an end as it cuts to Park Shin-hye looking at the camera and she wishes herself a happy birthday.
Directed by PD Jin Hyuk (Legend of the Blue Sea) and written collaboratively by Lee Jae-in and Jeon Chan-ho, JTBC’s Sisyphus: The Myth is currently set to premiere this month on February 17.
