Upcoming 2021 jTBC Sci-fi Thriller Drama Sisyphus: The Myth with Jo Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye Wraps Filming

Talk about under the radar stealth work and kudos to the cast and crew for a successful completion of filming during a trying year. Upcoming jTBC sci-fi action drama Sisyphus: The Myth has wrapped production and all that remains is post-production video work with the drama scheduled to premiere in February 2021 in the Wed-Thurs time slot after Run On. It’s a time-travel drama with Jo Seung Woo as a scientist entrepreneur and Park Shin Hye as a warrior from the future traveled back to keep him alive. That it’s airing on jTBC is the only reason the plot synopsis doesn’t give me hives and full on brain melt, I’m still so traumatized by Alice lol. I also love the PD Jin Hyuk who directed tons of great looking dramas from City Hunter, Painter of the Wind, Brilliant Legacy/Shining Inheritance, The Master’s Sun, Doctor Stranger, and Legend of the Blue Sea.

Upcoming 2021 jTBC Sci-fi Thriller Drama Sisyphus: The Myth with Jo Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye Wraps Filming — 31 Comments

  1. The premise sounds interesting and I like both leads, but it does worry and concern me that it’s a sci-fi/time-travel genre. Those dramas are rarely executed properly, the endings always leave my head scratching. Too many plot crater holes. I’ll still check out maybe at least the first episode since I like the actors.

  2. As much as I like PSH I so would like to see other and better young actresses.. Alive was so-so but Call was terrible..

    I also can’t imagine her as a warrior lol but I really hope that she surprise me because I look forward to this one as well. JSW is one of my favorite actor and I like his choises.

      • Younger?? I wrote young I meant as young as she is.. around her age.. please..

        Well, does is really matter? It’s only my opinion so not really but anyway, here is a few choice Yoon Eun Hye, Han Hyo Yoo or Shin Min Ah etc..

      • @Irisz Isn’t PSH is a more bankable and trust worthy actresses than the names you dropped? At least her most recent movies and dramas have been non-stop hits.
        I could see HHJ in the role though but doesn’t she have way better offers, even Hollywood’s?

    • The girl practically chooses a drama every two years, it seems to me that it is a wide space to choose a project without intervening in the choice of other actresses, in addition, everyone is free to choose to see what they want to see.

    • Lmao it’s important what JTBC wanted PSH for their anniversary special drama and not some young actress you want.
      Also it’s funny that she get a lot of praises from all people even those don’t want kdramas and movies for her performance in The call. So yall critics here are at it again.
      But it’s ok. Nothing will stop her even the opinion she doesn’t fit action or warrior roles. Right?
      You talk like PSH is a random actress. In fact she has straight winning record better than most.

    • Maybe because production companies wants her because she is a capable and bankable star? Some would even agree to delay shooting just to get her.

    • Wow! What a back handed comment, just be honest that you hated her guts! Sad for you that Korean producers ,PDs and other actors can not wait to work with her , read up on it 😉

      • An answer to comment about wanting another “ young” actress for this role….still find that funny!

  3. I have very high expectations of this drama because of the 2 leads whose previous body of work I mostly like, especially JSW’s. I better temper my expectations though and just enjoy the ride. Can’t wait for the series to start!

  4. This project can be a success or a failure, normally the scripts with changes in time tend to have so many logical failures, hoping that it is not like that, does anyone have references about the writer?

    • The writer is the most worrisome among this production with no proper hit before but this is also the script that SBS was fighting for. And PSH and JSW usually has good eyes on script so let’s hope they are right again,

  5. I’m excited for the new movie action for Park shin hye .
    O love her style in action she is gorgeous and really sexy when she do a action
    She is phenomenal
    And hopefully her next project will be a love drama
    It’s been long time
    Wish she will paired to ji chang wook or park seo joon.
    Wow I love that ..

      • MOA is a poor choice of her!!! Poor choice of choosing the script that show a boring crying girl running around for just a guy, the story totally focuses on the guy, she was given very little room for her character development. I have no problems of her acting. There were a lot of constructive criticism about her choice in that drama. Be receptive and accept that instead of going Gugu Gaga here.
        The rating has nothing to do with poor choice as there are more contributing to the rating. In this case, part of it I can safety say because of star power of her and HB. But poor choice is still a poor choice.

    • My fave drama of PSH is MOTA. I fell in love with her there. So, I don’t know what poor choice you are talking about. Her acting there shows the mature PSH that I was looking for from her other past dramas.

      Her crying was necessary because I would feel the same way if I was in that situation. She did her character justice and she did excellent!

    • I do agree moa is a poor choice. But I think psh was cheat on here. When she accepted moa, she was gushing about her role. But when the drama ended, she didn’t even say anything to the writer (not even a thank you in the last shooting commentary video-as far as I remembered). And from her last fans meeting, she said that she felt apologetic to her fans coz she couldn’t “show anything much” in her last project. So, hopefully this new drama storyline can do her good since she do all the actions scenes herself

      • @Kdramafans.ina For sure the issue is the writer. If MOA became a lesson for her to be more demanding before sign in projects so at least she gained something from that. But as one of her avid fans I got a bit traumatized lol

  6. I wonder why every time there’s an article about ShinHye, some folks would start mentioning so and so actress should have gotten the role blah blah etc….. don’t you see why she is the one desired by the powers that be? Because she delivers!! Her Call director was the one who made changes and was willing to wait for her and this production is an anniversary offering. Doesn’t that tell you something? Well, PSH fans, we should just take these musings as a compliment to our girl that she gets people bothered. :b

  7. People are jealous and they can’t help it.
    They should be more thankful that PSH only work in 1 drama every more than 2 years now and give other opportunities for their biases.

  8. @ Emma so true,MOA has too much potential to became an iconic drama.if they should have given everyone equal screen space. it was more like a one man show.i always wondered about psh character in the MOA.what was the writer thinking?.in the drama when her parents read she took full responsibilty of her siblings & her grandmother.its represent a strong women.how can such strong women can cry & run for a man who she recently met.writer didnt give to her character.it will be so much fun if they have put psh as an ally for HB in the same with lot of actions.

  9. @ Emma so true,MOA has too much potential to became an iconic drama.if they should have given everyone equal screen space. it was more like a oneman show . The plot was refreshing & new in kdrama.when i see stlls of psh as game character i was too excited. .
