tvN’s new weekend series Alchemy of Souls is a fantasy romance drama set in a fictional country called Dae Ho Guk. It follows two protagonists whose fate has been switched due to a soul-changing magic.
Lee Jae Wook stars as Jang Wook, a virtuous yet rebellious young master in the Jang family. Jung So Min plays a physically frail young woman named Mu Deok Yi, who gets possessed by assassin Nak Soo’s soul.
In the released photos, Jung So Min unexpectedly makes eye contact with Jang Wook as her blindfold falls off. Startled, the two just stand there awkwardly staring at each other. How they look at each other as if they are confirming each other’s existence creates explosive tension.
The production team said, “Although it was the first time Lee Jae Wook and Jung So Min starred in a series as a couple, they showed incredible chemistry. Lee Jae Wook makes an important discovery in this scene and Jung So Min exudes soft charisma as she tries to disguise her heated feelings. Please stay tuned for their upcoming love story as they will be switching roles from teacher to student after having a fateful meeting.”
