The official trailer for “The Sound of Magic,” based on the webtoon “Annarasumanara,” has been released by Netflix. Three main characters are introduced in the trailer: a magician, a female student, and a male student. Based on the trailer video and the webtoon story, let’s take a look at who they are.
The Sound of Magic Official Trailer
The trailer for “The Sound of Magic” begins with a female student, Yoon Ah-Yi (Choi Sung-Eun), chasing a blown-away money bill. In the original story, she comes from a poor family and is desperate for money to support her family.
Yoon Ah-Yi can’t let go of the money bill, so she follows it until she reaches a small theme park. She then meets Lee Eul, a mysterious musician.
Lee Eul (Ji Chang-Wook), the magician, lives in a small theme park that is no longer in operation. When he meets new people, he frequently asks them, “Do you believe in magic?” He uses magic to turn one bill into two bills for Yoon Ah-Yi. Yoon Ah-Yi thinks Lee Eul is pitiful because he still wants to act like a child.
When Lee Eul saves Yoon Ah-Yi from danger, her feelings toward Lee Eul begin to shift.
In the webtoon, Yoon Ah-Yi is about to be sexually harassed by the manager of her part-time job. Lee Eul appears in front of her, spells “Annarasumanara,” and the bad guy vanishes.
This scene is also featured in the trailer for “The Sound of Magic.”
The boy wearing glasses in the trailer is Na Il-Deung, and he is Yoon Ah-Yi’s classmate. While Yoon Ah-Yi is a poor student wearing holey stockings, Na Il-Deung comes from a wealthy family. Despite their disparate backgrounds, they both experience growing pains. Yun Ai wishes to become an adult as soon as possible in order to escape poverty. Na Il-Deung has no idea what to do with his life because he only follows the rules of his parents and teachers.
Yoon Ah-Yi experiences life outside of poverty for a moment while in Lee Eul’s magic. Na Il-Deung begins to think about himself and develops an interest outside of studying.
One thing that stands out in the trailer for “The Sound of Magic” is how much great music is featured behind the magical scenes. The main cast stated that they had been recording music every day for over a year. Fans of the original webtoon can expect a musical-like experience in the drama version.
“The Sound of Magic” will be available on Netflix on May 6, 2022.
