Lastly, Hwang In Yeop will be playing Na Il Deung — Yoon Ah Yi’s classmate. He plays a brilliant student who’s not good at interacting with other people. However, he finds his life slowly transforming when Yoon ah Yi and Rieul introduce him to the world of magic. The actor recently starred in dramas True Beauty and 18 Again.
The drama comes from director Kim Seong Yoon, whose previous works include Love in the Moonlight and Itaewon Class. He will be working with writer Kim Min Jeong, who also penned the screenplay for Love in the Moonlight.
