The photoshoot was followed by a show interview. When asked about what they expected of each other before the filming began, Go Youn Jung first answered, “I knew that Jae Wook is an amazing actor, but he showed performance beyond expectations on the set. At first, I was surprised by how mature he was, but later on, I was surprised by how cute he was.”
Lee Jae Wook said, “It wasn’t easy even for me to adjust the character according to the story that unfolds three years later, so it must’ve been tougher for Go Youn Jung. But she called me first to rehearse the scripts. I was impressed by her passion.”
Since Alchemy of Souls takes a unique genre that mixes action, fantasy, and romance, the two actors both agreed that action scenes are the most tough yet rewarding scenes to shoot.
“We appear together in a lot of the scenes, and our situations are quite similar, so I relied on him a lot. So when he’s filming with someone else, I wonder if he’s doing alright,” Go Youn Jung replied. Lee Jae Wook chimed in, “We’ve built this connection between us. Sometimes I get jealous. I want our scenes to be the most endearing and saddest.”
