Watch: Jung So Min And Lee Jae Wook Form An Unlikely Teacher-Student Bond In “Alchemy Of Souls”

“Alchemy of Souls” has shared an exciting new highlight teaser!

Penned by the famous screenwriting duo known as the Hong Sisters, tvN’s “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 highlight teaser starts with the powerful Nak Soo (Go Yoon Jung), whose soul suddenly wakes up in the body of weakling Mu Deok (Jung So Min). On top of her new appearance, she’s shocked to discover her dramatic decline in physical agility.

Lee Jae Wook appears as the sophisticated yet troublemaking young master Jang Wook of the Jang family. He’s told, “There’s no teacher anywhere who can teach you technique.” Jang Wook confidently responds, “I will find them myself.”

Jang Wook instantly recognizes Mu Deok as the teacher he needs and tells her, “I think we can become a beautiful teacher-student relationship where we can gain what we each want.” She ultimately agrees, but he’s much worse than anticipated, so Mu Deok takes Jang Wook to her personal training grounds.

Much to her dismay, this excites Jang Wook instead of motivating him so Mu Deok dramatically yells out, “Are you here to play? What are you doing right now?! Jang Wook. If you’re not going to do anything, just die.”

Despite the rough start the two have, they begin to develop a closer bond as Jang Wook tells Mu Deok, “I recognized you at first glance, my teacher.” She tells him, “While living, I’ve only met those who want to kill me. You’re the first to try to help me live.” However, Mu Deok adds, “If we meet again at this distance, don’t save me.”

Jang Wook goes through his own struggles as Park Jin (Yoo Joon Sang) tells him, “Remain as the young master of the Jang family who doesn’t know how to do anything.”

When he reunites with Mu Deok, Jang Wook states, “Thanks to you, I’ve come back to life.” With barely any energy left, Mu Deok replies, “You’ve lived, my student,” before collapsing into Jang Wook’s arms.
