Prepare yourself for the most magical facts about “The Sound of Magic” new webtoon drama starring Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop, and Choi Sung Eun.
1. A Reminder of The Magical World in Your Childhood Dream
Unlike some other fantasy dramas, Netflix “The Sound of Magic” breaks the barrier between the wonders of the magical world and reality. Suppose the drama follows the original story of “Annarasumanara” webtoon. In that case, it will follow the life of Yoon Ai –or Yoon Ah Yi (Choi Sung Eun)—and Na Il Deung (Hwang In Yeop), whose life will slowly change after meeting the magician Rieul—or Lee Eul (Ji Chang Wook).
When the reality of life hits hard for Yoon Ai and Na Il Deung, the two teenagers slowly lose themselves and their dream only to pursue the issues they face in the real world. However, a destined meeting with a magician, Rieul, and short visit to his magical world will start reminding them—and us—of a dream we used to yearn when we were children.
Netflix “The Sound of Magic” will once again bring you to believe in magic.
2. The COMPLETE Transformation of The Cast, Especially Ji Chang Wook and Hwang In Yeop, Into New Personas
Secondly, what makes Netflix “The Sound of Magic” truly a magical work is the complete transformation of its main actors Ji Chang Wook and Hwang In Yeop, in the drama.
Ji Chang Wook as an Innocent Magician
For over 17 years of his career in the Korean film industry, we have always associated Ji Chang Wook as the go-to actor for action, crime, and investigation movies and dramas. His precise emotions, profound acting skills, and swift movements in every action choreography almost make us believe that he’s some kind of a secret agent in real life.
However, after he completed his mandatory military service in 2019, everything started changing. Ji Chang Wook seems like he’s wishing to get out of his action role label and prove that he can nail other roles too.
And he did it wonderfully!
An ordinary convenience store owner, a romantic architect, and a hospice volunteer with a difficult past, Ji Chang Wook transforms into a pure and innocent magician, Rieul (Lee Eul). He managed to completely take out all his previous action project labels and completely embodied his new character with a fresh image and impression. Even the cast and crew members stated that Ji Chang Wook is Rieul himself.
“Ji Chang Wook is an actor who has the energy of Rieul.”Actress Choi Seung Eun about Ji Chang Wook.
“His innocence and pureness stood out.”Director Kim Sung Yoon about Ji Chang Wook.
Hwang In Yeop as a Brilliant Competitive School Ace
Young actor Hwang In Yeop has always been famous for his cold gaze and icy charms. That is why most of his previous roles, including “18 Again” and “True Beauty,” involved some image of harsh and bad students.
However, the “bad boy” era of Hwang In Yeop is now over! Today, we can welcome a new persona of Hwang In Yeop as a handsome, meticulous, and competitive school ace.
Facts said that in “The Sound of Magic” new webtoon drama with Ji Chang Wook, promising actor Hwang In Yeop will turn into Na Il Deung, the school’s brilliant ace with the top marks in almost everything.
“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.” – Director Kim Sung Yoon about Hwang In Yeop.
Despite his excellent reputation in school, Na Il Deung has no idea what to dream and how to live his life. That is because he’s spent his entire life living his parents’ dream and following what they had in mind for him.
Through Na Il Deung, we would once again remind ourselves about a dream we once wanted. Not the one forced by our surroundings, but our very own dream.
Choi Sung Eun as The Girl Who Gets Swallowed by the Reality
And remember that facts about Ji Chang Wook new webtoon drama “The Sound of Magic” also bring us to welcome a new promising actress, Choi Sung Eun.
She may be new to the business, but her acting skills say it all. Previously in “Beyond Evil”, Choi Sung Eun managed to get her performance on the same level as Yeo Jin Goo, who’s basically spent all his life acting in front of the camera.
Today, Choi Sung Eun will remind us of our dream with her role as Yoon Ai in “The Sound of Magic” new webtoon drama.
Forced to get out of her childhood innocence, Yoon Ai has to struggle with poverty and support her family after her father runs away. So she left all her dreams behind and hoped to become an adult as soon as possible so she could get a stable job. That is why she strived hard and became the second-best at her school after Na Il Deung.
3. A Profound Story that Touches the Deepest Part of Reality
Adapted from “Annarasummanara” webtoon, Netflix “The Sound of Magic” is definitely not your usual webtoon drama. It touches the deepest part of reality, where people have to give up certain dreams only to face reality and live their life.
Not only that, Netflix “The Sound of Magic” also brings out various issues in society, including poverty and mental illness. It tells us the truth about how people—young and old—spend their lives struggling with these issues that they even don’t know how to live properly, let alone dream.
And the best part is that “The Sound of Magic” will enfold these issues in a beautifully packaged fantasy music drama.
4. A MUSIC Drama: Ji Chang Wook Singing and Dancing?
Along with all the above magical facts about the webtoon drama, Netflix “The Sound of Magic” confirmed to be a fantasy MUSIC drama. Hence, we can expect some singing and dancing from at least the main character itself: Magician Rieul by Ji Chang Wook.
After all, we know that Ji Chang Wook had once been an ace during his Musical Theater era. Therefore, watching him embracing that part of him once again, especially after he decided to change his image and persona, would be a true moment worthy of anticipating.
As for Hwang in Yeop, we have seen his stunning singing skills in “True Beauty”, so this music drama is probably still a piece of cake for him.
5. Nam Da Reum Last Project Before His Military Enlistment
Last but not least, you should know the facts that Ji Chang Wook new drama, “The Sound of Magic” is actually the last project of former veteran child actor Nam Da Reum before going on his mandatory military enlistment.
In this Netflix magical project, Nam Da Reum will once again take on the younger version role of the main character, Rieul. With his rich acting spectrum and genuine emotion, Nam Da Reum will assist Ji Chang Wook in further understanding the character of magician Rieul as well as the background story of his life.
When is The Official Release Date?
Finally, are you excited about the official release date of Netflix’s “The Sound of Magic” new webtoon drama starring Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop, and Choi Sung Eun?
