Not much is left in the popular Netflix fantasy K-drama, Alchemy of Souls. The drama has enthralled fans with its mystical magic storyline full of riveting mysteries and theories. Alchemy of Souls heads into its final season with two episodes remaining. An Alchemy of Souls Season 2 was confirmed months ago, but the production company has officially announced a premiere month.
‘Alchemy of Souls’ Season 2 will premiere at the end of the year
Fans do not have to wait long to see what the Hong Sisters have in store for the second half of the season. The creators planned from the start to develop two installments to fulfill their full storyline vision.
Its cast was reported to have begun production of Alchemy of Souls Season 2. According to Soompi, the reports are true. A source from the K-drama reveals, “Part 2 of Alchemy of Souls is set to air in December.”
The new season will have 10 episodes, and for now, its storyline is unclear until the premiere of the K-drama finale. But fans are worried as the K-drama has not reported if actor Jung So-min, who plays one of the female leads as Mu-deok, will return.
What actors will return for ‘Alchemy of Souls’?
According to Soompi in July, Alchemy of Souls was rumored to change its female lead for the second season. The drama confirmed that leading actors Lee Jae-wook, Hwang Min-hyun, and Go Yoon-jung would return for Alchemy of Souls Season 2.
But it led fans to speculate that Go would replace Jung as the lead for the next installment. Based on the ongoing storyline, fans worried Jung’s character would be written out in the finale’s events. The production company cannot confirm her involvement to avoid spoilers for the first season. Jung’s agency also commented, “We ask for your understanding that we aren’t able to tell you whether she’ll be in Part 2 or not because it could be a spoiler for Part 1.”
With the reports of Alchemy of Souls Season 2 airing in December, a Naver article claims the new season will not include Jung. “Jung So-min appears until part 1, but does not appear in part 2. Go Yun-jeong continues the story as the main character. According to a broadcasting official, Jung So-min did not join in the filming of part 2. In addition, it is confirmed that there is virtually no appearance of Jung So-min,” explained the article.
Considering that neither Jung’s agency nor the production company has confirmed her character role, it is best to take the Naver article with a grain of salt.
