Alchemy of Souls continues to impress us and keep us hooked to the drama till the release of its new episodes. While the episodes themselves are mindblowing, the previews for each episode are just as exciting to the viewers.
The previews that excite us and make us look forward to the new episodes while also paving the way for us to come up with new theories of what could happen next. As the show slowly moves towards its final weekend, the preview for this week only got us more excited with the scenes of the future that were shared.
Now, if you don’t already know about the show (which is hard to believe), Alchemy of Souls is a Korean fantasy drama which is set in the imaginary world of Daeho. The story revolves around magicians who get involved in sorcery that swaps the souls of people and people whose fates are affected by them.
The series stars Lee Jae-wook, Jung So-min, Hwang Min-hyun, Shin Seung-ho, Yoo Jun-sang, Oh Na-ra and Jo Jae-yoon, alongside other cast members and is created by Park Joon-hwa, and the famous Hong Sisters- Hong Jung-eun and Hong Mi-ran.
Coming back to the preview that was shared at the end of episode 18, here is a breakdown of what happened in the short clip and what we can expect in the penultimate episode.
Alchemy of Souls Episode 19 Preview Breakdown
The preview starts with Jin Mu trying to entice everyone against destroying the ice stone. He asks that no person would want to give up the stone’s power while the king’s face seems shocked upon reading something from the Words of the Heart.
The truth about what master Seo Gyeong had once done with the ice stone is out while Park Jin tells him that a person who has to protect something is the one who will give up on the stone. The scene then shifts to Jang Uk who is just trying to protect someone with the help of the ice stone. He is ready to give up on the immense powers of the ice stone just like master Seo Gyeong.
We can say that everyone now knows that master Seo Gyeong had destroyed all ice stones except one which he has used to save the woman he loves. And it seems like Jang Uk will be following this path too.
Elsewhere, Park Dong-gu and Jin Cho-yeon are in Gaema village where they see Jin Woo-tak and follow him. It seems like he has come here to kill the real queen but ends up being seen by these two who try to stop him.
Next, we have Jin Mu talking about the divine powers of Jin Bu-yeon which are not the sole result of her mother’s blood, but also because her father is equally powerful. However, some secrets are meant to be revealed in the episode and this is an answer to look forward to.
This is definitely going to be an exciting revelation and one that can change the course of the show.
While a woman Jin Ho-kyung is blaming Park Jin for hiding a truth that will change her life forever. While scenes of shaman Choi in the queen’s body is seen performing sorcery, along with flashbacks of the time when her books were burnt are played.
Then, as master Lee’s voice is heard in the background indicating to people who are going to leave and those who are going to return, Jang Kang is seen coming to Songrim. It looks like the Gwanju is here to make things right at last.
In Jeongjingak, Mu-deok tells Jang Uk to do what he has to as he readies himself to break the barrier. He is going to be trying something not out of stupidity but out of vigor because that is how his master has thought him to do things.
Finally, we see a dressed-up Mu-deok who amazes Jang Uk who then talks about a bride who is about to get married soon.
Looking at how she dresses up for him and the two openly flirt, we can conclude that they are now completely open about their feelings for each other. After the kiss in the last episode, it looks like episode 19 will end on a better note.
But maybe, she is dressed up because Jin Ho-kyung has realised that she s the real Jin Bo-yeon and deserves the treatment of the heir of Jinyowon.
However, seeing as how Mu-deok’s scene of her pulling out her sword came up in episode 18 and not 17, this final scene could also be a part of the finale and not episode 19.
The final scene of the two is really exciting but it is also worrying because anything can happen in the Alchemy of Souls.
