Park Shin Hye plays a fierce protector in the new series Sisyphus: The Myth
Actress Park Shin Hye will return to the small screen in winter in the role of a fierce female warrior and agent in her new JTBC special drama series Sisyphus: The Myth says Allkpop on Jan 15.
The series will air this February 2021 after ongoing Wed-Thurs series, Run On. Sisyphus: The Myth is a fantasy/mystery drama focused around a genius scientist, Han Tae Sool. He is a revolutionary scientist and engineer who has devoted his life to researching an unidentified existence which lives among humans on earth.
Han soon finds out that the group of unidentified beings wants to use his intellect and skills for dangerous purposes.
A protector by the name of Kang Seo Hae is sent by another mysterious group to safeguard Han. Actress Park Shin Hye is starring as the protector responsible for safeguarding the genius Han Tae Sool from evil, Kang Seo Hae.
Kang Seo Hae gives off the aura of an experienced soldier, shouldering a colourful, personalised rifle along with her charismatic military gear.
Actor Jo Seung Woo stars opposite Park Shin Hye, playing the scientist Han Tae Sool in a rather goofy and nerdy role. Fans can look forward to the mystery, the action, and the chemistry between these two veteran stars when JTBC’s ‘Sisyphus: The Myth’ premieres next month!
