Many people believe that this song is extremely suitable to be included in the teaser of ‘Sisyphus: The Myth’ (JTBC) because of its emotional message.
On the 10th anniversary, JTBC has made a special drama called ‘Sisyphus: The Myth’ in the fantasy – mystery genre. Actor Cho Seungwoo plays the genius engineer Han Tae Sool – a person who is embarking on a dangerous journey to bring hidden creatures that are secretly residing in the human world. Actress Park Shin Hye plays Kang Seo Ha – a warrior from the future and also the savior of Han Tae Sool.
The character Kang Seo Hae comes from the future, and during her adulthood, she has to undergo a rigorous training process to survive. The movie’s previous teasers showed Park Shin Hye’s role as a brave warrior, but a new teaser revealed on January 29 showed a different side of her. And the special thing that makes netizens pay attention is the details related to BTS are incorporated in the movie.
In the video, female warrior Kang Seo Hae seems to be in a period of ruin and war in the future. She walks in the area that used to be Myeongdong, a shopping district in Korea, but now it is all a pile of ruins and not a single person. Suddenly, Kang Seo Hae discovers a poster of BTS’s documentary film ‘Bring the Soul’.
Kang Seo Hae took off her mask and played BTS’s 2017 hit “Spring Day” on her phone, put on the headphones, and smiled. When the song rang, she continued walking through the ruins. Then she laughed and said, ‘Happy birthday, Kang Seo Hae.’ The song “Spring Day” played in the teaser made many people touched.
However, ‘Spring Day’ is not just a song that the character Kang Seo Hae loves. The production team of the movie shared that incorporating this song into the movie had even greater meaning. At the time, Kang Seo Hae is walking through the devastated Myeongdong, which was once a shopping mecca packed with people, gives a hint at the rough world in which she lives.
She has to wear a gas mask because of the polluted air and she survives on canned food. As she attempts to make it day to day in a world that’s been taken over by gangsters and warlords, she tries to find her own sources of hope. One of those things is BTS’ “Spring Day,” which brings back Seo Hae’s happy past and represents the times before Seoul was destroyed.
Kang Seo Hae doesn’t forget to smile and stays hopeful despite her difficult life. It’s described that the song is a perfect fit for Seo Hae’s current situation, as it conveys a message of remembering and missing a precious person that one has parted ways with while also not losing the hope of meeting them again one day.
The production team stated, “‘Spring Day’ has a very symbolic meaning for Seo Hae. This song that gives Seo Hae hope has been in the script since the planning stages, and we asked for permission from BTS’ side to use it before it was included in the video.” They added, “Please look forward to seeing if Seo Hae, who never loses hope, will experience a ‘Spring Day’ where flowers will bloom again.”
Korean fans and netizens both expressed that they had goosebumps when they suddenly heard the song ‘Spring Day’. It not only touches them with the difficult life the characters in the movie go through but also makes them feel more deeply about the message of hope in the song. ‘Spring Day’ is considered the ‘queen’ of BTS’s songs because it broke the record by being the song that stayed the longest time on the Melon chart – 206 weeks and still continues to be loved even though it was released many years ago.
