'Sisyphus: The Myth' Episode 3: Will Han Tae-sul get ousted? Park Shin-hye as Seo-hae will come to his rescue
'Sisyphus: The Myth' episode 3 will see Han Tae-sul face the consequences of not heeding to the Control Bureau which claims to be a part of the country's Immigration Department. From the show's first week episodes, it becomes clear that Tae-sul is not from Earth, and people like Seo-hae who travel from another part of the universe end up looking for him. Why or who he really is is a mystery.
It is, in this attempt of searching Tae-sul that Seo-hae outs him to the Control Bureau as well. She is not aware that the communication channels of Tae-sul are being monitored and as a result, she ends up mentioning the suitcase on the call. Coincidentally, Tae-sul also ends up finding the suitcase that his brother had in his possession. The same brother who Tae-sul had assumed was dead.
It is through the shocking BlackBox video from the aircraft cockpit that Tae-sul finds out that his brother, whom he believed was dead may just be alive. The suitcase was a find that was a result of investigating the strange aircraft accident that could have caused loss of multiple lives. Instead, Tae-sul had managed to save many lives with his quick thinking and ended up finding out the truth about the existence of another world from which people immigrated to Earth.
What to expect in 'Sisyphus: The Myth' episode 3:
As of Episode 2, Tae-sul has not met Seo-hae but she seems to know about him. In Episode 3, just as Tae-sul becomes a target of the Control Bureau after refusing to hand the suitcase over to the authorities. They warn him about how things will not end up too well even if he is the CEO of one of countries biggest tech companies. Even as the Control Bureau makes good on their promise, Tae-sul might also see opposition from an unexpected quarter.
That is none other than from his own company. The founder, who helped Tae-sul fund his dream company is sick of all of his chief tech guy's antics. Turns out, after his brother's death, Tae-sul hasn't been able to take part in board meetings and other things that he had done with interest. So his friend had instead stepped up and since then, it is his friend who continues to clean up the mess that Tae-sul leaves behind.
The founder, who is aware of the same ends up advising the friend to betray Tae-sul and take over his position in the company. This same guy has already begun dating Tae-sul's ex girlfriend. Of course, Tae-sul became aware of the same, but this shows that the guy has no qualms about the lines that must not be crossed. So what Tae-sul is looking at is the possibility of his fortune, fame and his technology disappearing over his obsession regarding his brother who may or may not be dead, the suitcase and the pictures that seem to be taken in the future.
Seo-hae will come to his rescue however and from here on, it will only be their partnership that will unravel a lot of secrets and we cannot wait to see the same happen.
