Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop & Choi Sung Eun Confirmed For New Netflix Drama “The Sound of Magic”
Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop and Choi Sung Eun are confirmed to headline the upcoming Netflix Original series The Sound of Magic.
Netflix has confirmed the production of Original Series The Sound of Magic, based on the popular webtoon Annarasumanara. With Kim Sung-youn directing, The Sound of Magic is a touching drama about Yoon Ah-yi, a girl who had to grow up too fast, and Rieul, a mysterious magician who — although grown-up — wants to remain as a kid.
The Sound of Magic will be directed by Love in the Moonlight and Itaewon Class PD Kim Sung Yoon. 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: School 2015. The series will be produced by JTBC Studios and Zium Content.
The drama is based on the webtoon of the same name by Ha Il Kwon, who is widely loved for his emotional depiction through his webtoon works God of Bath and After School War Activities.
After gaining huge popularity, it was serialized on Naver Webtoon in 2010 and has also been adapted into a play.
Meet its high-profile cast
Ji Chang-wook plays Rieul, a mysterious magician who lives in an abandoned amusement park. Ji recently starred in Lovestruck in the City, which Netflix distributed to audiences globally.
His performances across a range of genres (Backstreet Rookie, Healer) have mesmerized audiences of Korean Content fandom, certifying him as a Hallyu star. Ji artfully balances the childlike innocence and aloof charisma that defines his character Rieul.

Hwang In-youp, a powerful rising star, will play Yoon Ah-yi’s classmate Na Il-deung. Hwang has portrayed charming and handsome, but coldly distant characters, in True Beauty, 18 Again and The Tale of Nokdu.

The Sound of Magic will invite viewers from around the globe to a new vividly magical world. It will be released in over 190 countries only on Netflix.
