The curse of being late in following a series is to get spoiled by its ending.
[Disclaimer – this post may contain some spoilers]
I was told by fellow K-drama lovers to get my tissues ready. And of course the sentimental side of me who cries so easily – is expecting the tragedy behind this fantasy drama.
Growing up with Disney fairy tales such as Beauty and the Beast, Snow White etc, happy endings are the norm and what’s needed for a complete closure. But not in season 1 of Alchemy of Souls.
A tragic romance between Jang Uk and Mu-deok is what makes this show beautiful. My heart aches as I watch their love and friendship unfold. In the beginning, there are light moments with cute and comic exchanges between the characters. And I love how they portray the “change of heart” from Haksu to Mu-deok, in one scene you’ll pity her and another scene you’d like her to stay away from Uk.
The essence of true love is manifested here not by sensual scenes, but by what truly matters – sacrifice, dedication, loyalty.
I can do anything, if it only means being able to see you.– Jang Uk
Netizens find this story gripping and exciting, making us beg for more. Yes, many fans go through a plethora of emotions and I’m no exception. Real life experiences tell me that we can all relate with their struggles…
Gearing towards the season finale which they said – genius & gorgeuos! Let’s all get ready for this… ❤
