As expected, the see-saw Saturday to Sunday ratings pattern remains steady and this Sunday’s episode 8 of Alchemy of Souls went back up past 6%, in the same vein as Jang Wook takes one step back but really two steps forward. The attempted soul swapping was thwarted by the OG soul of Mu Duk, who somehow found Wook in the in-between and kept him focused and safe. That the drama never once introduced her seems intentional, from the outset she was just this blind girl that Naksu grabbed as an option for soul swapping and then shoved aside and the next thing we know is Naksu is in Mu Duk’s body. So we never know OG Mu Duk as herself only as Naksu’s personality and the two have merged together so meaningfully now. Wook and Mu Duk’s relationship continues to grow as each danger only makes Wook stronger and now he’s ready to level up to training with the rest of the sorcerer warriors and I can’t wait. He’s also basically goner for Mu Duk and she’s as close to loving him as she loves anything in her life and knowing the truth about her father’s death will hopefully release her from vengeance to doing more with her own life.
