Watch: Lee Jae Wook Is A Heartbroken Monster Who Carries His Dead Lover’s Sword In “Alchemy Of Souls Part 2”
“Alchemy of Souls Part 2” is gearing up for its premiere!
On December 6, tvN unveiled a new highlight teaser for “Alchemy of Souls Part 2” ahead of its premiere on December 10.
Penned by the famous screenwriting duo known as the Hong Sisters, “Alchemy of Souls” is a fantasy romance drama set in the fictional nation of Daeho, a country that does not exist in history or on maps. The drama tells the story of characters whose fates become twisted due to magic that swaps people’s souls. After Part 1 of the drama stole viewers’ hearts this summer, “Alchemy of Souls” is gearing up to return next month with Part 2—which will be set three years after Part 1.
The highlight clip kicks off with Jang Wook (Lee Jae Wook), who returned from the dead as a monster, saying, “I should have died then. I am committing a sin by existing. So I made up my mind not to do anything.” Kim Do Joo (Oh Na Ra) advises him to forget about his dead lover, who has become a source of deep resentment to Jang Wook as a star-crossed love, by saying, “Get rid of that red stone you are carrying at the spot where you were struck by the sword. Why are you carrying that yin-yang jade you shared with the deceased?” The story of Jang Wook, who is carrying his dead lover’s sword and using it to reap the souls in other people’s bodies, saddens the viewers’ hearts.
In the next scene, yin-yang jade sheds its light as Jang Wook meets a woman with the face of Nak Soo (Go Yoon Jung) who has lost her memories. Jang Wook says, “You are useful as long as you have that great spiritual power.” In a whirlwind of emotions and events, Jang Wook’s feelings toward the mysterious woman grow, raising anticipation for the rapport and relationship that the two will develop in the future.
