Cho Seung Woo opened up about his feelings about shooting his first fantasy drama, saying that it was “very intriguing.”
In the online press conference for JTBC’s new Wed-Thurs series Sisyphus: The Myth on the 17th, Cho Seung Woo revealed his feelings about the show.
Regarding his challenge of attempting a fantasy drama, he said that it was “very intriguing. I read up to the sixth episode from the first time I read the script. I remember wildly enjoying reading it. It furiously swirled within me. It was also interesting to see a world where the future and the present coexist.”
The actor also added, “I visually imagined a Korea which was ruined by the year of 2035, and that came to me very creepily. I would get interested in those things. I wonder how they will unravel within the show. Above all, the most important reason is the character. There is also a certain sense of pity that Tae Sul and Seo Hae share. It’s my first time to attempt a genre with everything in it, so I chose it with interest and hopes.”
Cho Seung Woo plays Han Tae Sul, a genius engineer and executive of the world-renowned company ‘Quantum and TIme.’ His excellent brain, handsome appearance, and stable financial status may shine him as the national hero, but he is actually a rather selfish individual who does not form bonds to anything whatsoever. While threatened by someone from the future, Park Shin Hye plays Kang Seo Hae, who comes from the future to protect Han Tae Sul. Having experienced a Korea which has been pillaged by the war, Kang Seo Hae is a strong character who can shoot and even install bombs in the battle.
Sisyphus: The Myth is to premiere on JTBC at 9 p.m. KST on the 17th.
