'Sisyphus' Park Shin-hye, Cho Seung-woo's unprecedented performance as savior..200% role commitment



Park Shin-hye revealed the reason for choosing the work, saying, “As an actor, I think I will be able to challenge a new genre through 'Sisyphus' and show various aspects.” As he said, her appearance in the teaser videos and images released so far was new. She showed off tough styling and high-difficulty action, because she was a warrior, Kang Seohae. In all of the scenes, Park Shin-hye's passionate efforts to study characters were intact.


Seohae grew up receiving intensive training from his father, a former commando, to survive in a barren future that was ruined. That's why he is a person who boasts "a high level of ability in fighting or coping with situations that recognizes and resolves situations with an instinctive sense." In order to breathe breath into the West Sea, I went to action school and devoted myself to practice. “I learned basic action moves while attending action school to get used to using my body.” “When I was shooting action acting in the midst, I did my best to think'I worked hard if I could',” he expressed his passion for the work.

Park Shin-hye's efforts to transform into a perfec  'Gangseohae' continued. First, in order to distinguish between the future and the present West Sea, costumes were prepared for each time zone and situation, and attention was paid to small details. “Seohae, who lives in the future, has differentiated themselves with clothes that are easy to work for for survival, and accessories such as knee pads, gloves, hoods, and bags, while Seohae, who lives in the present day, has differentiated itself with the feeling of clothes that Taesul saved. In addition, she thought, “There would not be a beauty salon in the ruined future,” she said, “I did a layered hair styling that looks like I had cut myself,” and completed the'Gang Seohae' style. Since the filming period was long, in order to have the same length of hair, I had to make a connection while wearing a hair extension. After completing this detailed character study, we made perfect preparations, so we can't help but expect Park Shin-hye's special performance to meet as the savior Kang Seo-hae who will protect the world.

Moreover, in the breathing with Seung-Woo Jo, which everyone is waiting for, “I was very happy to meet a senior I liked in my work. When we filmed together, it was fun to act together, and the feeling that we were creating together by talking about the work and the characters along with the energy we exchanged was very good.” “It was so cool to see the person'Taesul' always perfectly digested, and I was always grateful for the consideration of seniors who made the scene comfortable.” Expectations for Taesul, which exudes explosive chemistry when they are together, and smoke breathing in the West Sea, are increasing day by day. Lastly, I didn't forget to ask, "Please look forward to and pay attention to 'Sisyphus', which has many interesting points such as interesting materials and stories, actors' chemistry, and colorful action."

'Sisyphus ' is a fantasy mystery drama about the journey of Han Tae-sul, a genius engineer who tries to uncover the existence of a hidden identity in our world, and Seo-hae Kang, a savior who has gone back a long and dangerous path for him. Director Jin-hyuk, Lee Je-in, and Jeon Chan-ho, who are writing the box-office myth with the best productions such as'Legend of the Blue Sea','Doctor Stranger', and'The Master's Sun,' have already received attention from both inside and outside the broadcaster. It is planning to present a new paradigm of genre with innovative visuals and a solid composition and story that transcend time and space. It will be aired for the first time at 9 pm on Wednesday, February 17, following the JTBC Wednesday and Thursday drama'Run On'.

Park Shin Hye Talks About Acting With Cho Seung Woo In “Sisyphus: The Myth” And Transforming Into Her Character

Park Shin Hye Talks About Acting With Cho Seung Woo In “Sisyphus: The Myth” And Transforming Into Her Character

Jan 21, 2021
by J. K

Park Shin Hye spoke about preparing for her starring role in JTBC’s upcoming 10th anniversary special drama “Sisyphus: The Myth”!


The fantasy-mystery drama stars Cho Seung Woo as Han Tae Sool, a genius engineer who embarks on a perilous journey to bring to light hidden beings that are secretly residing in our world, and Park Shin Hye as his savior, the heroic soldier Kang Seo Hae, who has walked a long and dangerous path for him.


Park Shin Hye shared about the show, “You should look forward to it.” Talking about why she chose the project, Park Shin Hye said, “I’m taking on a new genre as an actress through ‘Sisyphus’ so I think I’ll be able to show many different sides of myself.”




In order to survive in the barren future that’s fallen into ruin, Kang Seo Hae grew up undergoing intense training from her father, who had been in the special forces. The actress said her character is able to perceive and solve situations with her instinctive senses and she’s quick on her feet and incredibly skilled when it comes to fighting.


To bring Kang Seo Hae to life, Park Shin Hye practiced hard while attending action school. “In order to get used to using my body, I went to action school and familiarized myself with basic action moves,” shared Park Shin Hye, saying that she worked hard and did her best during the action scene filming.



In addition, the actress paid attention to small details while preparing separate kinds of clothing for the different time periods and situations, in order to differentiate between the future and present Kang Seo Hae. She said, “To create a difference, Seo Hae living in the future wears clothes that are comfortable while she’s being active in order to survive, as well as accessories like knee pads, gloves, bandanas, and bags. Seo Hae living in the present wears clothes that look like something that Tae Sool procured for her.”


Park Shin Hye said she thought that there wouldn’t be beauty salons in the future, saying, “I styled my hair with a lot of layers to look like she’d cut it herself.” As the show took a long time to film, she used hair extensions to maintain continuity and keep her hair the same length.


On working with Cho Seung Woo, Park Shin Hye said, “It was great to get to work with one of my favorite senior actors. As we filmed together, it was fun to perform together, and I enjoyed both the energy we exchanged and the feeling that we were creating something together while talking about the project and our characters.”


“It was so amazing to see how he was always managing to perfectly pull off the character Tae Sool, and I was always grateful for how considerate he was as he made the set comfortable,” she said.


Finally, the actress said, “Please look forward to ‘Sisyphus’ with its fun points such as an exciting subject material and story, the cast’s chemistry, and the impressive action.”


“Sisyphus: The Myth” premieres on February 17 at 9 p.m. KST.
