Sisyphus: The Myth’s New Teaser
The clip begins with Kang Seo Hae (Park Shin Hye) wearing a gas mask and discovering BTS’s concert film poster, “Bring The Soul.” She is currently roaming in the ruins of shopping district Myeongdong, and after discovering the poster, she takes her phone out and plays the track, Spring Day. As the song plays, she continues to roam around in Myeongdong while humming the song. In the end, she smiles and looks at the camera and says, “Happy birthday, Kang Seo Hae.”
The production team also shared their thoughts behind choosing the song. They said that there is a greater meaning to “Spring Day” than a song Kang Seo Hae likes to listen to.

Kang Seo Hae wears a gas mask because of the pollution and survives on canned food. Due to mafia’s and warlords, her home is destroyed, and listening to Spring Day gives her a source of hope.
