The South Korean show stars Ji Chang-wook as the magician Rieul, Choi Sung-eun as Yoon Ah-yi, and Hwang In-youp as Na Il-deung. The newly released stills comes after a week Netflix released the official trailer for the series.

Based on the popular webtoon Annarasumanara, The Sound of Magic is described as a “touching music 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.” 

Netflix first confirmed the start of the series’ production in April 2021, promising that the project will have “magic and singing. And high schoolers [are] growing up and coming of age. And a dash of whimsy.” 

The series is directed by Itaewon Class and Love in the Moonlight director Kim Sung-youn. The Sound of Magic is set to premiere on Netflix on May 6. – Rappler.com
