It wasn’t only Jang Uk who experienced drastic changes from within. Although she has set her eyes on her missions firmly for so long, Naksu (Go Youn-jung), a powerful sorceress and assassin who shifted into the body of a blind woman named Mu-deok, transitioned from someone clouded with murderous intentions to being driven by love. However, she becomes unable to control her situation and everything shifts. Now, a mysterious woman with Naksu’s appearance has emerged. With this recent development, there is definitely a lot to be revealed.

The Friendships

Aside from the elements of magic, action, and comedy the series brings, Alchemy of Souls is also a story of all sorts of friendships. The chemistry between Jang Uk, Seo Yul (Hwang Min-hyun), Park Dang-gu (Yoo In-soo), and crown prince Go Won (Shin Seung-ho) can endear you without a doubt. All of their personalities perfectly blend with one another, which is why they are so fun to watch. While these men already showcase great bonds, adding Mu-deok to the picture brings the friendship to new heights, as Naksu from within is unfamiliar with such relationships. She definitely brings more fun to the table. With the return of the series, set your eyes on their friendship that will either stay the same or change.
