After a long wait, 2022 will finally be the year we see the arrival of the live-action adaptation of the popular webtoon Annarasumanara, The Sound of Magic. With filming officially over, we’re hopeful a Netflix release date will be announced soon. We’re keeping track of everything you’ll want to know about The Sound of Magic, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.
The Sound of Magic is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original psychological K-Drama series written by Kim Min Jeong, directed by Kim Seong-Yoon, and based on the webtoon Annarasumanara by Ha Il-Kwon.
Producing the series is JTBC Studios who Netflix has worked with many times in the past. Netflix carries many of JTBC shows exclusively internationally and a few globally too. Unlike the broadcast shows that come to Netflix weekly, Netflix will receive all the episodes of The Sound of Magic all at once.
Some of the other shows JTBC has produced for Netflix exclusively in this manner include D.P. and All of Us Are Dead. We’ve compiled a list of JTBC shows that have come to Netflix after airing in South Korea here.
