Netizens are all a stir when the new trailer of Sisyphus 在劫难逃 was released. In a departure from his idol “image”, Lu Han who will be starring opposite actor Wang Qianyuan, will be shedding his upbeat and bright persona by playing the villain in the new drama.
“The past is the future and the future is now.”
From the team behind the hit Day and Night comes the new sci-fi thriller Sisyphus. The new drama was only announced yesterday and revolves around the intriguing premise of time travel and being stuck in “a moment in time” sorta thing judging from the first trailer of the series. The English title Sisyphus also gives us a hint of what is to come – if I have my Greek mythology right, Sisyphus was punished by the gods by having to roll a boulder up a steep hill, only to have it roll back down before it reaches the top. He is doomed to repeat his futile efforts of rolling the boulder back up again and again for all eternity.
Sisyphus tells the story of Zhang Haifeng, played by actor Wang Qianyuan, a former police officer in pursuit of a main suspect (Lu Han) in a recent serial murder case he is investigating. He finds himself in a cycle of “reincarnation” as he attempts to find out the truth.
I'm so excited for villain Luhan ��.
Yesterday only the first day of filming, but amount of pics and videos spread all over weibo..
Hope this doesn't affect filming and production
I want to see this drama. Luhan has such a pretty face, I want to see how he will portray the villain. Based on the plot, it would be Luhan as an normal good looking angel by day and serial killer villain at night. Which is probably why the cop cannot figure it out.
I hope it's not gonna be like a 'twist' at the end where we get where all the hints pointing at the villain and then he isn't actually the villain afterall just becos it's Luhan and he is just too innocent looking to play an antagonist.
