'Sisyphus: The Myth' Episode 4: Will Tae-sul marry Seo-hae in future? Shocking twist reveals her origin
Seo-hae has arrived not from a parallel universe, but from 'the other side' to be able to change the outcome of the event that she regrets most in her past
Han Tae-sul (Cho Seung-woo) should be running away from attention and keep away from the public eye because he has been threatened with his life. Initially, he believes that it could be the Control Bureau. So instead of taking a flight, he ends up taking a train to Busan where he is expected to give a talk about the latest technology that his company has found.
He is late to the event, but he doesn't escape the attack that someone on the other side had planned for him. Turns out individuals from the other side were sent specifically to attack Tae-sul. One man, in fact, seems to have arrived with guns at the spot where Tae-sul is expected to give his talk so as to shoot him down.
The only one who seems to be aware of enemies from all sides that Tae-sul has is Seo-hae (Park Shin-hye) but at the moment, Tae-sul doesn't trust her. All that he knows about her is that she is someone who he posed with in a wedding dress. Of course, he doesn't remember any part of it. So he is warier than ever. Instead, he is witnesses to something that he would have not believed if he hadn't discovered the technology himself -- teleportation.
In fact, it is the very technology that Tae-sul had introduced to the world before he was shot. Of course, it was only the first step that he had taken by showing the audience that a cube of sugar could be teleported. So to see a human being get teleported along with a suitcase, similar to what he had seen in the black box footage of the flight that almost crashed due to a foreign object hitting the windshield of the plane mid-air obviously shocked him.
However, it is this revelation that helps Tae-sul make an important observation. The people who are teleported, are from the future because they have a regret that they wish they could clear up.
In 'Sisyphus: The Myth' Episode 4 we learn about what Seo-hae regretted that she wanted to change and if it was in any way related to her relationship with Tae-sul that probably began in the future. There is also the matter of how and why his brother would choose to return from the other side and what his regret had been. However, the biggest question that continues to take center stage is why Tae-sul is continually targetted. We bet that it has to do with his technology.
Sisyphus: The Myth' airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9 pm KST on JTBC and can be streamed on Netflix in the US.
