Here's everything we know so far about The Sound Of Magic, starring Ji Chang Wook, Hwang In Yeop, and Choi Seung Eun:
What's the plot of The Sound Of Magic?
The Sound Of Magic is a heartwarming drama that circles around Yun Ai, a girl who grew up faster than she imagined. She meets a magician named Lee Eul, who's the opposite of her—he's an adult who wants to stop time and remain as a child. Based on the title, elements of music are also stitched in this fantasy series.
The drama's manhwa version, Annarasumanara, is penned by Ha Il Kwon and was released in 2010. To give you a clearer idea about the webtoon, a summary reads: "When she was little, Yun Ai dreamed of becoming a magician. But in reality, she's just a high school student who can't even afford new socks. After meeting a mysterious magician at a carnival, she decides to follow her dream."
Who's in the cast of The Sound Of Magic?
Ji Chang Wook will be headlining The Sound Of Magic as Lee Eul, a magician who lives in a deserted amusement park. Previously, you have seen him in the Netflix drama, Lovestruck In The City where he played the role of an architect named Park Jae Won.
