Sisyphus: The Myth may have already ended, but it remains to be the talk of the town. The show ends with a good note, putting Kang Seo Hae (Park Shin-Hye) and Han Tae-Sul's (Cho Seung-Woo) story to a close.
JTBC recently drops a new behind-the-scenes look at Sisyphus: The Myth. Here, Park Shin Hye reveals the reason why she is crying in the final episode's ending.
According to Soompi, the video shows the 31-year-old actress practicing an action scene, perfecting where she will aim her gun. Her on-screen partner and Kim Byung Chul are seen relaxing and pulling their earplugs out after her set.
They continue their practice until Kim's character has to slowly disappear. From here, they all run out of the camera's way to give way to the background shot.
After that, Park and Cho prepare themselves for their last emotional kiss in Sisyphus: The Myth. They try every place where they can place their hands correctly, trying to find the perfect angle.
They then get their retouches, and when they look over their script, it reveals Cho has to touch Park's face. From here, she has to give him a faint smile.
However, the Stairway to Heaven star reveals they didn't do that during the rehearsals, so she bursts into tears while filming. She may have been touched by the scene, knowing it will be their final filming for the series.
Sisyphus: The Myth is a dystopian drama series that started airing in February and ended in April. It is time-travel South Korean tale that tells the story of the genius engineer Han and the warrior Kang, OtakurKart News noted.
It is dubbed as JTBC's 10th-anniversary special drama, taking over the network's other shows, Run On and Law School. There are not too many time-travel-themed TV series or movies in Korea, though there are several wrinkle-in-time stories where characters coexist in two different timelines.
These stories usually feature time-travel devices, but they typically exist in the world of fantasy. Park and Chos's series features these two ways together, blending the time-travel concept in a fantasy world to create a story where they will eventually fall in love with each other, per SCMP.
Han is finding the reason behind the death of his older brother, Han Tae-San (Joon-Seok Heo). Kang, on the other hand, traveled back in time from the future to help him save the world from a grave danger coming.
With this story, Sisyphus: The Myth has won the hearts of many. Park and Cho's superb acting also adds up to the mix, making every viewer's time worthwhile.
