Wow wee, what a great pre-Christmas surprise! jTBC stealth mode dropped the first teaser for its early 2021 thriller K-drama Sisyphus: The Myth and I say stealth because there hasn’t been a single still released so far. Starring Jo Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye, it’s yet another time travel or time related drama where she’s the kickass warrior from the future back to protect Jo Seung Woo’s engineer inventor dude. I’m getting Terminator vibes but it’s been so long since “I’ll be back” was a meme that I think this new generation would love a great protector of the future of humanity story. I thought the first teaser looked great but as always it’s hard to divorce Park Shin Hye the actress from the character she plays, it always takes me at least some time immersing in the story proper to stop thinking of her star persona cosplaying a role. Jo Seung Woo looks like a deer in headlights which is a nice change of role, and together I can see this story being more than the sum of the two big name stars.
