The hunt for Sigma was not Seo-haes (Park Shin-hye) original plan, however, and after Tae-sul’s brother Tae-san warned them how it could endanger his brother and what Seo-hae wants more than anything is for Tae-sul to be safe and healthy.

“Sisyphus: The Myth” Episode 7: Who is Sigma? Tae-sul and Seo-hae challenge the secret organization
‘Sisyphus: The Myth’ Episode 5: Tae-sul is only going to save Seo-hae only to split up later. Is this the beginning of a war?
It doesn’t look like Tae-sul is ready to understand Seo-hae’s concerns, and this may be why Seo-hae’s only present day friend, Choi Jae-sun, gets mad at Tae-sul. He can’t understand why Seo-hae would put himself in danger to save him, and the more Tae-sul acts recklessly, the more frustrated Seo-hae and her friend get. In episode 7, we saw Tae-sul receive a letter from his brother saying not to worry and emphasizing how happy he was to put his life in danger to make sure Tae-sul sul be safe. This makes Tae-sul guilty and he is heartbroken too.
The only thing he can do right now is find out who is really behind Sigma and hope to end the war. By ending the war, he believes he can meet his brother again. But can it really change the future? The show’s recurring theme is how Seo-hae and Tae-sul are constantly challenged for what they can and can’t do, and being able to change the future is one of them.
Can you really save your country from the end if you don’t even know why a secret organization is determined to wage this very war? When Seo-hae spoke of Jae-sun, he had made arrangements to leave the country. She had helped him win a lottery and that had made him thankful for saving his entire family. Instead of leaving as planned, he sends his family away to come back and help her.
In all the chaos, part of the time travel theory is revealed. It turns out that Seo-hae was born in 2012 and is still a child today. It also revealed that the pink diary she had kept nearby belonged to her future self, which had noted the importance of saving Tae-sul for saving the world. Of course, the diary was destroyed when Tae-sul and Seo-hae jumped in the river, but whatever Seo-hae is up to to change the outcome of Tae-sul’s discovery will bring in anyone she is close to the way of danger.
Sisyphus: The Myth airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 9 p.m. KST on JTBC and can be streamed on Netflix in the US.
