The drama is based on a Naver webtoon series of the same name, written by Ha Il-kwon. 

The webtoon revolves around Yun Ai, who dreamt of becoming a magician. However, she had to put her dreams on hold to become the sole breadwinner of her family. One day, she stumbles upon Lee Eul in an abandoned theme park and her life hasn’t been the same since.

She later introduces magic to her classmate, Na Il-deung, a student who only knows how to study but not socialise. He discovers how fun magic can be and simultaneously picks up social skills.

The series was so popular that it got adapted into a play, and now into a drama series.

Hwang In-yeop, one of the hottest Korean heart-throbs of the moment, will be playing Na Il-deung. 

His character is strikingly different from the bad boy roles he’s played in True Beauty and 18 Again. Na Il-deung is a class monitor who always tops the cohort in every subject.
