Okay, summer is officially here for me because HOMG where have you been all my life Alchemy of Souls? The Hong Sisters magic is back and ready to inject drama crack into my koala veins and I’m scrambling to find as many veins for the elixir to flow through me at max capacity. Episode 1 was high like but episode 2 is LOVELOVELOVELOVE running out of superlatives what the heck did I just watch this is so good reaction. After setting up the story nicely in the first episode, assassin Nak Soo becomes no longer blind but still quick weak servant girl Moo Deok, she runs head on into the central story around the four sorcerer families and the soul swapping magic. I already love Minhyun‘s second male lead the gorgeous and too perfect Seo Yul which is basically Lee Do Hyun‘s orabeoni character in Hotel Del Luna v. 2 so I know it will break my heart again. But after episode 2 I am 100% Team OTP with Lee Jae Wook and his seemingly doofy but intensely smart and savvy Jang Wook and the bicker and destined to fall in love relationship with Nak Soo as Jung So Min‘s Mu Deok. The drama hides nothing and tells you the secrets and hidden agendas nearly as quickly as it arises so the tension isn’t from trying to hide things but from trying to overcome things. Mu Deok and Wook’s master-pupil relationship will bring out the best in both of them and the journey ahead is already steeling me for pleasure and pain in all the best ways. On a side note, the ratings for episode 2 went up to 5.9%.
