Actor Ji Chang-wook shared how he approached his latest role in Netflix's Korean series "The Sound of Magic" in an interview with the Chosun Ilbo on Monday.
Based on a popular web cartoon, the fantasy musical series, which drew attention as soon as it was released last week, revolves around a teenage girl and a mysterious magician who lives in an abandoned amusement park. Ji plays the magician.
"To get into the role, I have tried to recall whether I believed in magic when I was young and also thought about what I dreamed of," Ji said.
And then, to really nail the role, he learned how to do tricks. In fact, most of the magic tricks seen in the series were actually done by Ji himself. "Besides doing magic, I also had to practice singing a lot."
"I think the best thing about the series is the fact that it is a heartwarming story that anyone can relate to," he said. "It is about childhood memories and forgotten dreams."
