Helmed by “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim” director Park Joon Hwa, “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 will tell the story of characters whose fates become twisted due to magic that swaps people’s souls.
The upcoming drama will be penned by the famous screenwriting duo known as the Hong Sisters (Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran), whose previous works include the hit dramas “You’re Beautiful,” “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho,” “The Greatest Love,” “Master’s Sun,” “Hotel Del Luna,” and more.
In addition to Minhyun, the drama’s star-studded cast will include Jung So Min, Lee Jae Wook, Oh My Girl‘s Arin, “All of Us Are Dead” star Yoo In Soo, Shin Seung Ho, Yoo Joon Sang, Oh Na Ra, and Jo Jae Yoon.
Minhyun will be starring in the drama as Seo Youl, the genius scion of the noble Seo family. Although he is flawless in every way—from his handsome looks to his brilliant mind and his impressive literary and martial arts skills—he is too naive to be realistic. Seo Youl is also a hopeless romantic who harbors a pure-hearted love for one secretive girl.
“Alchemy of Souls” will premiere on June 18 at 9:10 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new teaser of Minhyun’s character below!
