International anticipation is building for tvN’s newest drama, “Vincenzo!”Sisyphus: The Myth is the new JTBC’s 10th Anniversary Special drama starring Cho Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye.  This drama was definitely something I was looking forward to watching as it incorporates suspense, time travel and action.  Here’s a quick look at my first impression of the first 2 episodes.

Recap:

Han Tae Sul (Cho Seung Woo) is the CEO of a research company and a genius engineer.  One day, he finds a suitcase and discovers the mystery behind the death of his brother, Han Tae San, who died 10 years ago.  Meanwhile, Seo Hae (Park Shin Hye) travels back in time from the future to look for Tae Sul to rescue him from the dangers brought forward after opening the suitcase.

Reasons to watch this drama:​

The plot

The drama started off with a lot of action and suspense that leaves room for the drama to continue to develop.  I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how everything will unravel as there are already so many unanswered question.

The characters​

A drama can never go wrong with Cho Seung Woo and Park Shin Hye.  These actors have such strong and solid acting that there is no question that the characters can be well portrayed.  I look forward to the chemistry between the two as Park Shin Hye described in a recent interview that she had perfect synergy on set with Cho Seung Woo.  This is also Cho Seung Woo’s first fantasy type drama so it will be interesting to see how well he can portray this type of role.

Final thoughts​

It’s still early to further review the plot of this drama, but the writers have laid the foundation well in the first two episodes with a lot of suspense to be revealed in future episodes. I see a lot of potential with the storyline and hope it doesn’t fall off the cracks. I would definitely give this drama a go ahead to watch.

The premiere episode recorded an average nationwide ratings of 5.608 percent (this is high considering JTCB is a subscription network) so the drama is definitely off to a good start.

Stay tuned for my review on episodes 3 and 4 next week. Looking forward to see how much of the mystery unfolds!
