tvN’s Alchemy of Souls wrapped up its part 1 with a shocking ending. Jang Uk (Lee Jae Wook) was seen resurrecting after getting killed, raising expectations for part 2 set to premiere this December.

c, who played the role of Jang Uk, talked about finishing the show.


Q1. How do you feel now that part 1 is over?

We’ve been filming part 1 for about a year since last year. Focusing solely on the shooting for so long, I haven’t been able to show myself in front of people, so I had many worries. But after Alchemy of Souls aired, viewers showed much love, and I was just grateful. It felt like I was being rewarded for my hard work.

Q2. Part 1 painted out Jang Uk’s growth. What did you focus on the most while playing the role?

I think Jang Uk is a character with a huge gap. There were many lines in which his thoughts, actions, and tones were so free. I spent a lot of time making these personalities and lines sound like Jang Uk and Lee Jae Wook.

Q3. Your “romance eyes” were a big topic that you even won the nickname “Guilty Jang Uk.” Do you agree with this nickname?

From romance to bromance, I was really grateful that the viewers showed great love. I was even more grateful that they enjoyed Jang Uk’s emotional flow toward Mu Deok (Jung So Min).

I think “Guilty Jang Uk” came from scenes where I was with Yoon Ok. They said that Yoon Ok grew feelings for Jang Uk because his eyes and actions he showed her made her think she had a chance. And I think Jang Uk knew that too. There was a line – “It is unfair to see me as someone easy just because I received one-sided favors from others” – and I think Jang Uk was at fault. I do think Jang Uk is guilty.

Q4. Memorable lines that Lee Jae Wook chooses.

The most memorable scene was the ending scene of episode 3. Jang Uk laughs after receiving a punishment of a hundred floggings, but as I tried hard not to lose heart even after getting deeply hurt, I just ended up laughing. He was heartbroken and broke into a million pieces on the inside, but he didn’t back down and instead exploded his feelings. I think the character of Jang Uk was best shown in this scene.

Q5. Yon won lots of nicknames throughout the show, like “first snows,” “Uki-Deoki,” “soul-shifters,” and more. Which is your favorite?

It was interesting and fun to see how new nicknames came out after every episode. I was just grateful to think that this was all the result of people’s interest in our drama. So I like every single one of them.

Q6. Last words to drama fans who are waiting for part 2.

I say in confidence that you’ll get to see the new sides of everyone in part 2. Please look forward to seeing Jang Uk who’ll return soon.
