“The Sound of Magic” is rising in popularity as it currently ranks 4th place in Netlfix’s Global TV Show Rankings.
On May 6th, Netflix’s fantasy musical drama “The Sound of Magic”, starring Ji Chang-wook, was released with high expectations from the viewers.
“The Sound of Magic” depicts the story that happens when mysterious magician Lee Eul (Ji Chang-wook) suddenly appears in front of Yoon Ah-yi (Choi Sung-eun), a girl who lost her dream, and Na Il-deung (Hwang In-yeop), a boy who is forced to dream. The drama is receiving favorable reviews for its fresh story and musical acting.
As the work is drawing great attention, viewers are also curious about the actors. Therefore, Choi Sung-eun’s past works are being re-examined. Many netizens were surprised to know that Choi Sung-eun appeared in the movie “Start-Up”, which was released in 2019.
At that time, Choi Sung-eun played the role of So Kyung-joo, a teenage girl who runs away from home. This character impressed the audience with her unique style of red hair and sunglasses. Choi Sung-eun was also complimented for her excellent boxing skills when portraying her character, who gives the bad guys a lesson because she can’t stand injustice.
Many people found it so interesting to see such a twist in Choi Sung-eun’s character transformation since this image is 180 degrees different from Yoon Ah-yi in “The Sound of Magic”. In the case of Yoon Ah-yi, this is a high school student who struggles with hard days while trying to take care of her younger sister alone in an unfortunate environment.
In response to Choi Sung-eun’s filmography, Internet users commented, “I was so shocked knowing these characters are portrayed by the same person”, “When I watched Start-Up, I thought the red hair girl was quite pretty… So it turns out to be actress Choi Sung-eun”, “Her character transformation is so amazing”, etc.
Meanwhile, Choi Sung-eun, who debuted with the “Start-Up” and also performed well in her first drama – JTBC’s “Beyond Evil”, is attracting attention from movie and drama fans as a rising rookie actress.
