JTBC’s 10th-anniversary special drama Sisyphus: The Myth has unveiled the first stills of lead star Park Shin-hye.
Sisyphus: The Myth is a fantasy-mystery-thriller drama that follows a genius engineer and his savior from the future. Park Shin-hye (Memories of the Alhambra) stars as a fierce warrior opposite Cho Seung-woo (Stranger 2), who plays a genius engineer.
In the released stills, Park gears up as Kang Seo-hae, who is skilled in fighting and using guns. Park is expected to give a memorable performance with her action scenes, which is not new to the actress. In her past projects, she played characters who are adept in fighting. With her skills, Seo-hae uses ropes to transfer between high-rise buildings. She also has an accurate aim in shooting, making her a deadly sniper. Moreover, she specializes in close range combat, which allows her to defeat enemies even with just her bare hands. In hindsight, Park Shin-hye transforms into a highly skilled fighter whose terrifying abilities make her an effective protector of Han Tae-sul, played by Cho.
Sisyphus: The Myth is directed by Jin Hyuk, who is behind great dramas such as The Legend of the Blue Sea (2016–2017), Doctor Stranger (2014), Master’s Sun (2013), City Hunter (2011), among others. The director will work alongside writers Lee Je-in and Jeon Chan-ho. The series is scheduled to premiere in February, taking over the time slot currently occupied by Run On (2020).
