Durrrr, this drama pace is really challenging my patience. Don’t fret, I still love Alchemy of Souls and it’s the one drama I immediately think to watch when I wake up on Saturday and Sunday mornings when new episodes drop, but episode 13 was sooooooooo slow. It was half Wook and Mu Deok escaping Jin Mu and half more training and exposition crawl. I can’t stand the baddies and hate that they are so blatantly getting away with stuff even with their half assed explanations. Sure Wook and Mu Deok continue to get closer but the earlier episodes had them doing so alongside fantastic narrative momentum. I hope the drama picks up next episode and beyond because this midway slowdown worries me as a hallmark of the Hong Sisters trait – start strong and slowly peter out.
