Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop, And Choi Sung Eun Confirmed For New Drama About Magic


Upcoming Netflix Original series “The Sound of Magic” has revealed its cast lineup!

“The Sound of Magic” is described as a sentimental music drama about a girl named Yun Ai who becomes an adult too quickly and the mysterious magician Lee Eul, an adult who wishes to be a child forever. The drama is based on the webtoon “Annarasumanara” by writer Ha Il Kwon which was serialized on Naver Webtoon in 2010 and has also been adapted into a play.

PD (producing director) Kim Sung Yoon of KBS 2TV’s “Love in the Moonlight” and JTBC’s “Itaewon Class” will be helming the drama. The script will be penned by Kim Min Jung, who has previously worked with PD Kim Sung Yoon on “Love in the Moonlight” and “Who Are You.” Together, the director and writer will involve musical elements in the drama in addition to the delicate sensibility and breathtaking magic of the original webtoon. The series will be produced by JTBC Studio and Zium Content.

Ji Chang Wook will take on the role of Lee Eul, a strange magician who lives in an abandoned theme park. Choi Sung Eun will play Yun Ai, who lives a dreadful life until she meets Lee Eul and goes through magical experiences. Her classmate Na Il Deung will be played by Hwang In Yeop. Na Il Deung used to be a student who only focused on his studies and didn’t know how to bond with other people, but he begins to change after he learns about the fun of magic with Lee Eul and Yun Ai.

Meanwhile, Ji Chang Wook wrapped up his previous drama “Lovestruck in the City” earlier this year. Rising actor Hwang In Yeop has amassed a strong following of fans with his roles in “18 Again” and “True Beauty,” and Choi Sung Eun is a newcomer who has captivated viewers with her acting in “Beyond Evil” and the episode “Joan’s Galaxy” from “SF8.”




Netflix's The Swoon announced that this is going to be a MUSIC DRAMA. 



Ok I have been waiting for these confirmations since DECEMBER! Today I woke up and here it is. And I am over the moon. I have read the webtoon back in 2020, when the first casting rumours started up.


There have also been rumours they have started filming already in Lotte World and Yonsei University.

The shooting has started, actually there were rumours about it BEFORE the actual Netflix confirmation of the series was published. 


Still waiting on more official material, but for now, I found this truly great fan-made trailer:

No actors spotted yet, but the filming is underway in this spot, from a scene of the WEBTOON. It is from a flashback scene in which L recounts his story from his youth, so pretty far back in the WEBTOON.

Thank you for the update. I’ve been reading the webtoon online on MangaOwl, and I think it’s pretty interesting. However, the drama has only 6 episodes? I hope that’s just the number of episodes for season 1. 


It wasn't officially stated as 6 episodes, but that number was thrown about before the project was officially confirmed by Netflix. The webtoon only has 28 episodes, so I don't think that there would be Season 2.

Also, until an official lineup comes, I still hope for 2021 haha.


More filming under way!
