Season 2 of Alchemy of Souls dubbed as “Light and Shadow” premiered last December of 2022. At that time I was still finishing Dodo-Solsol-Lala-Sol also starring Lee Jae-Wook & I decided to wait for more episodes of season 2 to air.
According to Nielsen Korea, the season two premiere accumulated an average nationwide rating of 6.7%. A higher rating than that of season one, which premiered to a nationwide average of 5.2%. Season two episode two later received an even higher rating of 7.7 per cent, after it saw a substantial rise in viewership.
Alchemy of Souls – is one of the period pieces fused with fantasy and folklore. Many got captivated by season 1 as it ended with tragedy and mystery.
Like previous drama reviews, I avoid lengthy posts and prefer to point out the best in every series. I’m sure you’d agree, actors here have stunning visuals and exceptionally good-looking 😉
The genius of AOS is that they didn’t use actor heavyweights, the acclaimed writers – Hong sisters (Hong Jung-eun and Miran) presented a captivating storyline paired with carefully concocted visual effects to impress viewers worldwide.
Currently in episode 6 and I can’t help but to pity Yul again as another heartache is about to happen… 💔
Finished with this drama and ending is just superb! Happy ending for everyone.
