The Sound Of Magic is a fantasy series that follows main character Yoon Ah-yi (Choi), a girl who loses her dreams after facing the harsh realities of life, and Na Il-deung (Hwang), who feels immense pressure to bring his dreams to life. The tale begins to unravel after the pair encounter the enigmatic yet mystical magician Rieul (Ji).

The Sound Of Magic was first announced in April 2021. However, production for the series was halted in late July that year after Ji as well as a member of the production team had tested positive for the virus. The series later resumed filming the following month, following their recovery.
