Sisyphus: The Myth released its first trailer that showcases spectacular action and grand scale.
JTBC’s 10th-anniversary drama Sisyphus: The Myth is about a genius engineer who is trying to discover the hidden secrets about the creatures that live within our world and his savior from the future. The network is said to have put in extra effort and money into this project, and the first teaser video released today certainly proves their efforts.
The teaser begins with an indication that other creatures are living in hiding in this world. Slowly the tension starts to skyrocket when someone says to Han Tae Sool (Cho Seung Woo), “They are looking for you.” Soon, Kang Seo Hae, Han Tae Sool’s savior, appears in front of him, showing off her excellent martial arts skills. The reason why she came to Tae Sool after risking her own life is her belief “If I save you, you will save the world.” Will the two be able to hold each other’s hand and break away from the fetters of Sisyphus?
The short 90-second teaser video alone raises expectations to infinity as it hints at the different levels of action and scales. The fact that Sung Dong Il also took off its veil for the first time draws keen attention.
The production team said, “The first teaser video released today compressed the story of Sisyphus along with the spectacular transformation of Cho Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye. Can a genius engineer and a warrior, who has gone back in time and space, break the fetters of the Sisyphus myth, which is an eternal punishment to carry the heavy rock to the top of the mountain? Please look forward to the first broadcast in February.”
Sisyphus: The Myth is the new project by director Jin Hyuk, who is writing an unbeatable history with works like The Legend of the Blue Sea, Doctor Stranger, and The Master’s Sun. Lee Jae In and Jun Chan Ho writer couple have penned the script. Sisyphus: The Myth, a project that will present a new paradigm for the genre with its innovative visuals, solid plot and story that goes beyond time and space, will premiere in the first half of next year as a follow-up of Run On.
