The fantasy-mystery drama stars Cho Seung Woo as Han Tae Sool, a genius engineer who embarks on a perilous journey to bring to light hidden beings that are secretly residing in our world, and Park Shin Hye as his savior Kang Seo Hae. She comes from a future that has fallen into ruin due to a war, and she takes on the task of protecting Han Tae Sool in order to save the world.
Check out questions about the story that remain to be answered below!
1. Why are Han Tae Sool and Kang Seo Hae being chased?
Han Tae Sool is a founder of the world-class company Quantum and Time, and he’s adored as the “nation’s hero.” However, the plane accident that he was involved in by chance leads to him ending up in the eye of a storm when his life becomes threatened as he’s chased by someone. His savior Kang Seo Hae has followed a long and dangerous path to protect him, and she’s also pursued by these mysterious figures. Han Tae Sool and Kang Seo Hae are continually chased and end up engaged in gunfights, and it’s not yet been unveiled why they’re being pursued.
2. Who are “they” and why are they coming to the present?
There are beings living in the world of “Sisyphus: The Myth” who keep their true identities hidden. Hints of them have been shown through previously released teasers, and it’s said that these abnormal beings pretend to be normal. Han Tae Sool says, “They say I’m going to make a time machine. And people are using the time machine now to come from the future.” This leads to the questions: who are these beings and why are they crossing over to the present?
3. What’s in the suitcase?
One thing that people who come from the future all share in common is that they bring a suitcase with them. It hasn’t yet been revealed what’s inside, but in the teaser for the first episode, Seo Hae is carefully guarding the suitcase even as she runs away from the mysterious beings, making it clear that its contents are very important. She also warns Han Tae Sool, “Don’t you dare open the suitcase.” The mystery of what’s in the case and what will happen when Tae Sool opens it adds another level of anticipation for the premiere.
