“The Sound Of Magic” Creative Team Gives A Peek At The Creative Process Of The Series
All set for a spellbinding ride, The Sound of Magic gears up for its premiere on May 6 on Netflix!
Providing the charming points to anticipate in the series, Director Kim Sungyoun, writer Kim Minjeong and webtoon writer Ha Ilkwon detailed their imaginative intentions in the adapted story.
To unfold a magical experience filled with fantasy, music, and drama, The Sound of Magic features Yoon Ah-yi – a girl who has lost her dreams in the face of reality – and Na Il-deung – a boy pressured to fulfill his dreams. Correspondingly, an enchanting story unravels as they encounter the enigmatic yet mystical magician Rieul.
A Combination of Magic and Music to deliver a stronger message!
Director Kim Sungyoun launched the project intending to preserve the original webtoon’s message.
He was moved by how the original story depicted the characters wavering between dreams and reality and how “magic” alleviated their hardships.
For that reason, Kim first proposed this live series adaptation to the original webtoon writer Ha Ilkwon, and after a decade, they’re now ready to present it to global audiences.
Kim says working on the hit series Itaewon Class gave him a better understanding of the rift between a webtoon and live series. Thus, he involved writers Kim Minjeong and Ha Ilkwon from the early planning stages to share ideas and set the right direction and tone.
“I thought integrating music into the magic theme could effectively convey the story’s message. By weaving in music, choreography, and CG to the original narrative, he created attractive visuals and a compelling narrative that can eventually drive emotional impact.”
Meanwhile, writer Kim Minjeong focused on bridging the gaps between the webtoon and the live series, paying close attention to details to suit the overall production.
“The necessary process of revising detailed elements was not easy. It simultaneously required matching the song lyrics to the plotline context, convincingly depicting the character’s emotions, and aligning the right kind of magic for the character Ri-eul.”
The Sound of Magic invites global audiences to a world of enchantment. It will be released on May 6th, only on Netflix.
