[Drama 2021] Sisyphus: The Myth, 시지프스: the myth


Recommended Posts

I will be honest, not my favorite drama. I LOVE science fiction, but this one was not my cup of tea. It was nice to see Park Shin Hye in an action drama showing off her moves. She's an extremely talented actress.

JTBC Drama Sisyphus: The Myth Network: JTBC Genre: Action, Mystery, Sci-Fi Episodes: 16 Airdate: February 17th, 2021 - Airtime: Wed & Thu @ 21:00 KST Write

Whoa...we’re 2 eps in and we’re already solving it all.   Go us!  

@LingLing_Wannabe Like I comment earlier, the premise is still interesting and there are lots of questions I am interested in knowing and learning. However, I have to agree with that it is too unreali

CHOI IN HA(PINOCCHIO) VS KANG SEO HAE (SISYPHUS: THE MYTH)

 

Fan: #Inha Choi, who can heal the sickness that only tells the truth, #Seohae Kang, who has the opportunity to not have to repeat the future again.

 

Park Shin-hye: Choi In-ha is able to heal a disease that only tells the truth.
(The reason why I didn't choose the West Sea) is because I think that even if I repeat the future, I will be able to change that future someday.

Sisyphus: The Myth: action, mystery and grand spectacle

 

ELODIE LEROY  MAY 21, 2021

Sisyphus: The Myth (Netflix)

 

Need a brain-spinning sci-fi action series? Available on Netflix, the Korean drama Sisyphus: The Myth is for you. Criticism.

Science fiction enthusiasts will not shy away from their fun. With its tortuous and imaginative plot on the theme of time travel, the drama Sisyphus: the Myth takes us on a thrilling adventure punctuated by dantesque action scenes, while finding the right balance between suspense and emotion. The drama owes a lot to its endearing duo of performers, Park Shin Hye and Cho Seung Woo, whose chemistry sparks. Good SF blockbuster as we like them, visible on Netflix since April 15, 2021.

 

New luxury production for JTBC

Coming from the future by means of the uploader, a time machine, Gang Seo Hae (Park Shin Hye) narrowly escapes the Control Office, a secret society that tracks illegal time travelers. Seo Hae goes in search of Han Tae Sul (Cho Seung Woo), genius scientist and CEO of the company Quantum & Time, to protect him from a deadly threat. It is he who will create the uploader in the near future.

Definitely, JTBC has not finished surprising us with its luxurious productions. The cable channel has been around for barely ten years and already amazes us with the variety of its programming, between the societal drama Sky Castle , the colorful melodrama The World of the Married , the historic series My Country: The New Age and now the science fiction drama Sisyphus: The Myth . These dramas are very different from each other, but they have one thing in common: an uplifting honesty with the genre they explore.

 

Directed by Jin Hyuk ( The Legend of the Blue Sea ), the drama Sisyphus: The Myth comes in 16 episodes and sets its mystery from the first scenes with the arrival of Seo Hae in our time. The sequel plunges us directly into the heat of the action with a plane crash thwarted in extremis by Tae Sul, who discovers on this occasion a black briefcase belonging to his brother who has been dead for 10 years.

The meeting between Seo Hae and Tae Sul takes place in Episode 2, as the scientist is targeted by an assassination attempt in the middle of a conference. The only way Tae Sul can survive now is to follow without thinking this woman from the future - the idea is somewhat reminiscent of Terminator (James Cameron), but the comparison will end there. Alongside Seo Hae and Tae Sul, Sisyphus: The Myth takes us on an eventful adventure mixing different temporalities, between a present disturbed by elusive forces and a future plunged into desolation and banditry. The challenge ? Save Korea from nuclear war.

 

Spoiler

Temporal paradoxes

The theme of time travel is nothing new to the world of series, but we quickly understand that the universe of Sisyphus: The Myth is governed by its own rules. From the functioning of the “uploader” and the “downloader” to the failed transfers seeing the travelers arrive in pieces, the technologies of today and tomorrow fit naturally into the narrative and the notions of temporal paradox and parallel worlds are of course on the program.

Park Shin Hye (Sisyphus)

Park shin hye

 

Boasting luxurious special effects, Sisyphus: The Myth gradually unveils a futuristic world populated by lawless gangs. Through the gaze of Seo Hae, who wanders the streets and ruined buildings to find food or medicine, the landscape gradually widens to unfold, in episode 8, superb post-apocalyptic shots on the city of Seoul after the war.

Seoul under bombardment

As well as being a stimulating sci-fi drama, Sisyphus: The Myth is also a bountiful action series, which scrupulously fills all the boxes for it to compete with Hollywood on its home ground, the big show. The energetic realization of Jin Hyuk shines with some flashes, especially in the crazy action scenes that punctuate the story.

As such, in addition to the muscular fights like that of episode 2, the drama offers explosive shootings, a car chase involving deadly drones and even a zipline escape between Seoul skyscrapers! We particularly like the shooting of episode 13, where we follow, as in a video game, the trajectory of Seo Hae in the chiadé setting of a ruined street.

 

Finally, it is impossible to ignore the incredible scene of mass destruction that occurs unexpectedly halfway through the series, and during which the city of Seoul is set on fire and bloodshed by North Korean missiles. Boosted by a frantic car race under the bombardments, the scene looks straight out of an American disaster film à la Roland Emmerich ( The Day After ) and shows distressing images of Seoul landmarks swept away by missiles (the tower Namsan, the National Assembly, Gyeongbok Palace…). Only the drama Designated Survivor had dared to destroy the National Assembly so far. Sisyphus is disintegrating the whole city!

 

 

 

 

Awesome Park Shin Hye in action

One of the surprises of Sisyphus: The Myth is also seeing Park Shin Hye turn into an action heroine. Who would have thought, ten years ago, to see one day the actress of the cult romantic comedy You're Beautiful undergo such brutal fight scenes? Park Shin Hye only recently tried his hand at the thriller in the cinema, with Heart Blackened and especially The Call . In Sisyphus: The Myth , she confidently connects martial contests and shootings - the director strives to show that she carries out her fights herself.

Seo Hae's character is very much a superheroine, but that doesn't mean she's just a war machine. Park Shin Hye is above all a very good actress, which allows Sisyphus to develop a true female character, with her moods and her story.

Seo Hae's design is also thought to combine its different facets: the girly ornaments of its firearms give it a childish side which instantly humanizes it, even on a battlefield, and which allow to make the link with the Seo Hae child that we meet many times in the present. The touching complicity of the young woman with her father, played by Kim Jong Tae ( Do You Like Brahms? ), Brings her relief, in addition to playing a decisive role in the story.

Cho Seung Woo as a passionate scientist

The choice of Cho Seung Woo, actor confirmed in the cinema ( Inside Men ) as on television ( Stranger ), is also judicious in the role of Han Tae Sul. Approaching his character with humor and relaxation, he excels as well at embodying the passionate scientist, as the ordinary man dumbfounded by events or the calculator who develops ingenious plans to extricate himself from a crisis situation.

 

Spoiler

Jo Seung Woo (Sisyphus: The Myth)

 

 

If Seo Hae's actions are influenced by his relationship with his father, those of Tae Sul are guided by his desire to uncover the truth about his brother's disappearance, a mystery that will hold surprising twists and turns. As always in Korean dramas, human issues are at the fore.

Served by the alchemy between the two actors, the love story between Seo Hae and Tae Sul alternates between emotion and lightness and makes you feel the attachment of the characters, without ever tipping the drama into melodrama. Sisyphus remains above all an action and science fiction series and does not betray the hopes raised by the first episodes.

 
Spoiler

Sung Dong Il (Sisyphus: The Myth)

Sung Dong Il

The supporting actors are all perfectly in their place, whether it is Sung Dong Il ( The Cursed ), excellent as a sarcastic mercenary who hides his HQ under his convenience store, Chae Jong Hyeop ( Hot Stove League ) as a serving knight ready to go. everything to help Seo Hae, Jung Hye Jin ( Rugal ) as an enigmatic psychic or Tae In Ho ( Soul Mechanic ) as Eddie Kim, Tae Sul's partner.

As for Kim Byung Chul ( Sky Castle ), he imprints a strange aura and scathing humor on a villain character so evil that it becomes almost abstract, like an unhealthy embodiment of human jealousy.

 

 

Park Shin Hye: action scene

But by the way, why this mysterious title, Sisyphus: The Myth  ? The answer emerges towards the end of the series. In order not to spoil the story, we will simply remind you that in mythology, Sisyphus is a man condemned by the gods to perform the same task eternally. You just have to tweak your mind a little to understand.

What?! So when Taesul leans on Seohae's shoulder & holding her hand was just adlib? Since it didn't exist on the script. The script said : <Taesul looking back at Seohae. She smiles when he look at her, then title "Sisyphus The Myth">

 

When someone asks for a Sisyphus ending,
Reply that it is a scene of a plane to Hawaii

Sisyphus Episode 11 West Sea Taisul Wasteland - Beach Kiss Scene

<Seohae snatches the pouch Taesul was holding and checks the inside. The injection is broken.
Seohae grabs Taesul's collar>

Did Seohae change it because it was too radical to grab her by the neck?
Ha, the more I see the script, the more I want to hear the comments.

 

- Ending Script 2/2 

Ha, I watched episode 11 crying from the kissing scene to the ending...
