The First Meeting
When Ah Yi and Deung meet the magician for the first time, they become suspicious of him. So, the magician shows them some extravagant magical tricks that will make them forget reality. Eventually, Rieul will help the students mature and know what it means to live as an adult.
The mini-series is based on a webtoon by writer Ha Il Kwon, titled Annarasumanara. Director Kim Sung Yoon said he tried to create a new world for the students to help them forget about reality and focus on the space provided to them.
"I looked for a vibe in which they can forget reality and focus on the space they were in", he said.
