All those what the heck is this discussions will be laid to rest this coming Saturday as tvN fantasy sageuk Alchemy of Souls will finally meet viewers. Taking over the time slot from critically acclaimed and highly rated Our Blues, the bar is set high to begin with and so much more can go wrong with Alchemy thanks to a young central cast some of whom don’t have strong track records and a story that no one yet knows is really about. Toss in some visually incongruous modern looks and we have a drama poised to be WTF or WOW. The latest drama poster focuses on leads Lee Jae Wook and Jung So Min in near embrace and lots of eye-sex with the requisite lip pouts. Unfortunately the previews have the two bickering up a storm so I don’t feel the romance (yet) just staring at the poster. The new stills of the veteran supporting cast work much better off the bat, a lot of gravitas and foreboding delivering serious sageuk vibes.
