As mentioned above, Chang Wook will portray a strange magician in the drama. He lives in an abandoned theme park. He is a mysterious and eccentric adult who dreams of living as a child forever. Before showing his magical skills, the magician asks the audience if they believe in magic.

Yoon Ai meets the magician when she leads a dreadful life, and her life changes through magical experiences. She starts believing in magic again and recovers her lost innocence. She stopped believing in magic after her father's business failed and he went missing. She had to take care of her younger brother and manage everything. The only thing she wanted in life was to grow up faster and become an adult. But the magician helps her re-discover herself.
"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", the actress said.
Hwang In Yeop as Na Il Deung in Fantasy Drama
Na Il Deung was a brilliant student in school who only focussed on his studies before meeting the magician. He was never interested in other people and had no idea what he wanted to do in life. But his life changed after meeting the magician and Yoon Ai. They helped him learn to have fun in life and enjoy the magic.
"[Na Il Deung] doesn't know what he likes. At the same time, he bluffs a lot, and he has odd charms. 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 actor said.
The Sound of Magic will premiere on May 6, and K-drama fans can watch it on Netflix.
