Netflix Announces Casting of JI CHANG-WOOK, CHOI SUNG-EUN AND HWANG IN-YOUP for K-Drama THE SOUND OF MAGIC

Netflix has confirmed the casting and production of its next Original Series "The Sound of Magic" which is based on the popular webtoon Annarasumanara. With Kim Sung-yoon directing, "The Sound of Magic" promises to be 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.

Director Kim Sung-yoon showed hus impeccable storytelling skills in the hit series, "Itaewon Class". He will be teaming up again with writer Kim Min Jeong, who worked with him on "Love in the Moonlight". 

The lead cast for the series has been confirmed with a star-studded lineup headed by Ji Chang-wook, Choi Sung-eun and Hwang In-youp.

Ji Chang-wook plays Rieul, a mysterious magician who lives in an abandoned amusement park. His performances across a range of genres 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.

Currently demonstrating her diligent acting skills in the drama "Beyond Evil", Choi Sung-eun is set to play the role of Yoon Ah-yi, working closely with Ji Chang-wook. Previously, her performances in drama "SF8: Joan’s Galaxy" and the 2019 film "Start-Up" marked her as a notable newcomer. She will portray Yoon Ah-yi, a girl struggling with the harsh realities of life who meets the enigmatic Rieul and experiences a world beyond her imagination.

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. His character, Na Il-deung, is a brilliant student but lacks the ability to interact well with others. Na Il-deung’s life slowly transforms as Yoon Ah-yi and Rieul introduce him to the enchanting world of magic.

"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. No details yet on its release date.
