Penned by the famous screenwriting duo known as the Hong Sisters, “Alchemy of Souls” is a new tvN 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.
Previously, Jang Wook (Lee Jae Wook) and Go Won (Shin Seung Ho) had engaged in a duel. However, Jang Wook had been much too weak to take on such a strong foe and was only able to escape danger with the help of Mu Deok (Jung So Min). Wanting to see Jang Wook’s skills progress, Mu Deok arranged yet another duel between the pair. She trained him in some high-level techniques that might be the only way he could defeat Go Won, and all that remains is to see if he can pull off the feat.
In the new stills, Jang Wook takes a firm stance with his determined eyes, ready to take on the challenge. He needs to have all his wits about him, as his defeat would mean flirting with death. Their duel is far from private, as the Song Rim magicians and notable magicians of Daeho are also present. Based on his stony and smug features, Go Won does not intend to go easy on his opponent. Although he had been unwilling to antagonize the Jang family, he realized that the duel would be unavoidable. Viewers are curious to find out what his reaction will be to seeing Jang Wook and how the duel will conclude.
This episode of “Alchemy of Souls” airs on July 10 at 9:10 p.m. KST.
