What is the plot of Sisyphus: The Myth?

The synopsis for Sisyphus: The Myth has been provided by Newsen:

Han Tae Sul, a co-founder of Quantum and Time, is a genius engineer with the highest level of coding skills and outstanding looks that outweighs his engineer fashion sense. Due to his innovative achievements, Quantum and Time is a world-class company, dubbed as “The Miracle of South Korea’s Engineering Industry”. In reality, Tae Sul has caused his company’s stocks to constantly fluctuate after the death of his brother ten years ago. One day, after witnessing the unbelievable truth of his brother’s death, he sets off on a dangerous journey.

Kang Seo Hae is a soldier who could zipline from building to building, fight big built men with her bare hands, shoot guns, and install explosives. With the survival skills that she’s learned from living amongst gangsters and warlords, she sets off a dangerous path of finding Han Tae Sul.

How well will Sisyphus: The Myth do in the K-Drama ratings?

Out of the top ten highest-rated cable television dramas, jTBC currently occupies three spots, including the top two. It must be noted that the highest performing cable dramas aired episodes in the highly coveted Friday and Saturday timeslot.

As Sisyphus: The Myth is airing on Wednesdays and Thursdays, the K-Drama may struggle to make an impact upon the top 50. Regardless, we’re still expecting good ratings from the K-Drama but we’re not expecting to see the series make it into the top ten of highest rated cable dramas.
