Netflix’s highly-anticipated series “The Sound of Magic” has revealed new stills of its principal cast!
“The Sound of Magic” is described as a fantasy music drama about the story that unfolds when the mysterious magician Lee Eul suddenly appears in front of a girl named Yoon Ai, who has lost her dreams, and a boy named Na Il Deung, who is being forced to dream. The drama is based on the webtoon “Annarasumanara” by writer Ha Il Kwon which was serialized on Naver Webtoon in 2010 and adapted into a play.
On April 7, the drama shared details of the three lead characters: Lee Eul, Yoon Ai, and Na Il Deung.
First off, Ji Chang Wook will take on the role of Lee Eul, a strange magician who lives in an abandoned theme park. He is a mysterious, eccentric adults who wants to live as a child forever. Before showing his magic skills, he always asks, “Do you believe in magic?”
Ji Chang Wook described his character, saying, “Good and evil standards are meaningless when it comes to Lee Eul. He expresses his feelings honestly without questioning causes or reasons.” PD (producing director) Kim Sung Yoon added, “Ji Chang Wook’s innocence and pureness stood out,” raising expectations for how the actor will portray this role.
Choi Sung Eun will play Yoon Ai, who lives a dreadful life until she meets Lee Eul and goes through magical experiences. She was once a normal child who believed in magic, but after her father’s business failed and he vanished into thin air, she had to take over the responsibility of taking care of her younger brother. Due to the burdens of her life, she loses her dreams and just wishes to become an adult quickly. Then she meets Lee Eul by chance and slowly recovers her lost laughter and innocence.
Choi Sung Eun said, “It was important for viewers to empathize with her and sympathize with her feelings. Just as I found myself in her, I hope that viewers will see themselves.” Kim Sung Yoon shared that the actress perfect expressed Yoon Ai’s sorrows, piquing curiosity over her delicate emotional acting.
“True Beauty” star Hwang In Yeop will transform into Na Il Deung, a boy who has no idea what he really wants in life. He used to be a star 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.
Hwang In Yeop commented, “[Na Il Deung] doesn’t know what he likes. At the same time, he bluffs a lot, and he has odd charms.” Kim Sung Yoon added, “Thanks to Hwang In Yeop, the No. 1 student who pretends to be smart and strong has become a little softer, cuter, and more lovable. Each character has distinct characteristics, and I was most satisfied with the harmony they created.”
“The Sound of Magic” will premiere on May 6.
