Sisyphus: The Myth Introduces Kim Byung Chul as the Big Bad Head of Sigma and Replaces Musical Director Starting with Episode 9

It’s kinda do-or-die week for jTBC Wed-Thurs drama Sisyphus: The Myth, heading into episodes 7-8 which would then wrap up the first half of its run. Last week’s ratings dropped but it has a chance to at least chalk up the messy and nonsensical sequences in the earlier episodes has worldbuilding pains and get its act together for the crucial meaty period. Episode 6 ended with the Big Bad revealed to be actor Kim Byung Chul, which the production spoiled a few weeks ago by saying he’ll show up midway through the way and play a big role and we all saw the character poster with the frosted image of a unseen person. I loved Kim Byung Chul especially when he’s playing a baddie cuz he’s so creepy bad like in Goblin. Plus the Control Bureau chief and minions are all so incompetent we need a genuinely dangerous enemy. I would say the writing and directing is Sisyphus’ biggest enemy lol but the production is instead changing out the music director of the drama with the switch happening in episode 9. Honestly the music is fine and the least of its problems sigh.

  2. I would say the acting is also one of the biggest enemies. Surely the writing is so messed up and nonsesical but gosh, not expecting the acting so bad coming from both leads being high profile actors especially Park Shin Hye. This drama really amplify her limitation as an actress.

    • Park Shin Hye is an ok actress, but how she got this far is timing and luck. Dunno why she has the same expression throughout. Cho Seung Woo is a great actor, but he feels limited by his dialogue. They have sis/bro chemistry but not the romantic kind.

      Perhaps this show was doomed from the beginning when SBS and writers went through court for it. Who would have thought JTBC would have received the dead end of the stick.

  3. I love Cho Seung Woo’s acting… i mean, after his flat expression in Strangers, in this one, he looks more colorful. Lol. But Park Shin Hye is just boring. I like her, but not her acting in this drama. I have to say that, in acting department, Beyond Evil and Mouse are the winners. Even the supporting casts act so well.

    Still watching this one, no plan to quit yet, but will do if the story isn’t going anywhere and stuck with running and hiding. Tired.
