‘The Sound of Magic’ Season 2: Kim Nam-gil Expresses Strong Desire for Continuation
Kim Nam-gil’s Aspiration for Season 2
Kim Nam-gil, the leading actor of Netflix’s original series ‘The Sound of Magic’, has expressed a strong desire for a sequel to the action drama set in the 1920s. Amid a lawless era under Japanese and Chinese influences, the series features Kim Nam-gil in the role of Lee Yoon, a leader of outlaws in the wilderness of Kando. His character had left everything six years prior following an incident during the Japanese military period.
The series has gained significant popularity among viewers domestically and globally, owing to its unique blend of Western-style action set in Kando, and Kim Nam-gil’s captivating performance. The positive response to the series has fueled Kim Nam-gil’s eagerness for a second season. He pointed out several narrative elements that are currently unresolved and could potentially be explored in a new season.
Unresolved Narratives and Hopes for Continuation
During the early discussions with the writer, there was a debate about whether to conclude the series in 12 episodes or extend it further. Kim Nam-gil believes there are still stories left to tell. One such narrative is the dangers faced by the village when visiting the shrine, an event that could trigger Lee Yoon’s awakening.
Kim Nam-gil also expressed his anticipation for the resolution of the narratives of Lee Yoon, who failed to protect his homeland, and his unresolved conflict with Kwang-il. His desire for a second season of ‘The Sound of Magic’ appears more profound than for his other series, ‘Fiery Priest’.
‘The Sound of Magic’ Global Popularity
The global interest in ‘The Sound of Magic’ is largely attributed to its unique combination of Western-style action set in the historical context of Kando and Kim Nam-gil’s compelling performance. The series has managed to captivate audiences both domestically and internationally, leading to a strong demand for a sequel.
While the decision to renew the series for a second season remains uncertain, the positive audience response and Kim Nam-gil’s expressed desire for continuation provide a glimmer of hope for fans of the series. As viewers eagerly anticipate the next chapter in Lee Yoon’s story, it remains to be seen whether the unresolved narratives will be explored in the potential second season of ‘The Sound of Magic’.
