So I just really needed to talk about my thoughts on the ending of this show. I have a lot of things going on in my mind and I just wanted to share them.
Is Seo Hae real or is Tae Sul hallucinating her?
I just don’t know…she could be real or not.
I think he remembers her because he did put the code in for the uploader, and I believe the uploader was still made, but not October 31st like it was always made before. It was delayed, which changed the past since the bombs didn’t go off that day. So I think everything that happened in this time became the new past and that’s why Tae Sul remembers Seo Hae.
Now was she there? I just don’t know. She could be a hallucination. Instead of him seeing his brother, he sees her. Or she could actually be there. There could be a new problem and she found another journal and found him again.
Also with Tae Sul killing himself at the end…to me it made sense. He said he knew this was going to happen but kept putting it off because he wanted to be with Seo Hae for as long as possible. To me that makes sense. Obviously he would do everything in his power to change it this time, so putting off killing himself for the last moment makes sense.
He also told Seo Hae to find him no matter what it takes. No matter when, to find him. So he knew he would see her again.
As for Sigma, I feel like Won Ju(Sigma) will still be evil, but he has changed in this new time. He became the way he was because no one cared for him and no one showed him kindness. However, in the final episode, because of Seo Hae father(who showed him kindness and that he does care) he did change. Now he still hates Tae Sul, as we saw from the ending, but I do think he has changed(probably not much though). I also think Eddie Kim will become the “new Sigma“.
Obviously this is all up to interpretation. Normally I’m not a fan of open endings, but with this particular drama I’ve seen a lot of different theories online and I’ve had the best time reading them. They’re many different possibilities and I really enjoyed seeing what people came up with! I just wanted to share my thoughts because I keep thinking about it and just needed to talk about it.
As I said earlier, these are just my thoughts on the ending of Sisyphus: The Myth. I think I may do a whole review of the drama as well!
