Sisyphus’ story about genius engineer Han Tae-sul (Cho Seung-woo) and brave time traveler Gang Seo-hae (Park Shin-hyre) uniting to save each other and the world, will soon be coming to an end. Supervillain Sigma (Kim Byong-chul) revealed his true identity and is actively taunting the duo. With only a few episodes left, there’s a lot of curiosity about how various conflicts will be resolved. Check out some questions we hope to have answers to soon here.
1. Will Tae-sul choose to save Seo-hae or the world?
Sigma has repeatedly asked Tae-sul whether he’s going to choose to save Seo-hae or the world. Given his feelings for Seo-hae, Tae-sul has always chosen her instead of the world. This is something that Sigma has pointed out, how everyone chooses to save their loved ones over saving everyone else. It looks like he’ll need to make a different type of decision if he wants to truly save her and avoid death.
2. Will Seo-hae and Tae-sul be able to change the future?
So far Seo-hae and Tae-sul have seen events that deviate from what happened in the previous timeline. Given that they have been able to make some changes this time, will they be successful in changing the future? Can they prevent the nuclear war and create a better outcome for the Korean peninsula? Seo-hae sincerely believes that she can succeed given the diary left behind by her dead self. Likewise, Tae-sul is confident he can fix problems. But it’s easier said than done.
3. Sigma vs. Han Tae-sul: Who will win?
Seo-hae and Tae-sul want to eliminate Sigma in order to prevent catastrophic events from happening. Sigma doesn’t claim responsibility for the war, but he keeps targeting Tae-sul and Seo-hae. In their efforts to save the world, will the duo kill Sigma? In the present timeline, Sigma goes by Seo Gil-bok and works as a painter. Is it possible for them to prevent Gil-bok from becoming Sigma or has too much damage already been done?
4. Will Tae-sul be able to meet his brother again?
When Tae-san (Heo Joon-seok) met Tae-sul in their past memory, he said it would be their last time seeing each other. It was such a heartbreaking moment when the older brother once again sacrificed himself for his younger brother. If Tae-sul and Seo-hae can manage to change the chain of events and save the world, they could potentially save Tae-sul as well. If they can prevent him from being on the run in the future, Tae-san and Tae-sul might be able to be reunited for good.
5. What will happen to time travel?
Seo-hae has asked Tae-sul not to create a time machine since that would help prevent the nuclear war from breaking out. Tae-sul feels conflicted because without a time machine, he wouldn’t be able to meet Seo-hae at this age. The genius engineer probably prefers a solution that involves saving the world, but also having Seo-hae with him. However, Sigma just needs the coding for the uploader now. Even if Sigma is unsuccessful, could time travel still be invented?
6. What will happen to everyone else?
The fate of everyone depends on what happens between Tae-sul, Seo-hae, and Sigma. What will happen to the brokers, namely Mr. Park (Sung Dong-il)? Mr. Park feels conflicted and knows that his past self is a scoundrel, but he’s also concerned about making sure his wife and daughter are safe. Eddy Kim (Tae In-ho) is still in love with Kim Seo-jin (Jeong He-in) and is actively helping Sigma build the uploader. Will he continue betraying his friend for the woman he loves? Sun (Chae Jong-hyeop) was about to leave Korea when he got captured and taken to Sigma. Sigma is threatening Sun with the safety of his mother and sister, so will he betray Seo-hae?
7. Will Tae-sul and Seo-hae both survive until the end?
Tae-sul and Seo-hae have both seen part of what happens in the future at their wedding. Seo-hae gets shot and Tae-sul has to choose between saving Seo-hae or the world. Will the pair be able to avoid this tragedy? Will they be able to have a happy ending? Will only one of them survive? Will they both survive but never meet again? Only time will tell the fate of the beloved protagonists.
