Alchemy of Souls Plot
The series is about the prohibited magic skill known as the “alchemy of souls,” which permits souls to transfer bodies, and how it affects the lives of young mages living in a made-up country named Daeho.
The plot revolves around Nak-su, a skilled warrior whose soul becomes trapped in the frail body of Mu-deok. Jang Uk, a member of a noble family, entices her, and she eventually becomes his servant.

Alchemy of Souls Filming
The production companies Studio Dragon and High Quality inked an agreement with Mungyeong City in August of 2021 to construct a filming site in Maseong-myeon with a budget of 5 billion won for the production of Alchemy of Souls.
After an employee tested positive for COVID-19 early on the morning of October 5, 2021, the decision was made to call off filming of the series for that week.
The announcement came the following day, October 6, 2021. The PCR test was subsequently administered to each member of the production crew.
Even though they had negative test results for the infectious agent, certain staff members who were considered to be close contacts voluntarily placed themselves in quarantine.
It was claimed that production on the second installment of the series had begun by July 2022 and that it was slated to wrap up sometime in the fall of that same year.
Following the conclusion of Season 1 of “Alchemy of Souls,” What Can We Anticipate From Season 2?
Because of the ice stone, Jang Uk was destined to be resurrected, but his current level of influence is unknown. Even though he was born with the king’s star and was destined to become a great mage, he was mocked his entire life for being an illegitimate child with no energy flow.
His rebirth will set him on a new path in life, but he has had a horrible existence up until now. Jang Uk and Mu Deok had given up their energies and decided to live a quiet life, but they were unfairly killed.
The devil himself, Jin Mu, has been harming the lives of many individuals for quite some time. It’s ridiculous that Jin Mu can commit the worst crimes and get away with them.
Season 2 of “Alchemy of Souls” will pick up the plot in December with “Alchemy of Souls: Light and Shadow.” Jang Uk, Dang Gu, and Cho Yeon all seem different and cruel in this sneak peek of the upcoming season.
Jang Uk is seen wielding Naksu’s sword, which serves as both a demonstration of the tremendous power he has gained in order to use the sword and an expression of his wish to have his lost love close to him.
Naksu, now back in her own body, will be the most shocking sight. So, who does end up coming to Mu Deok’s rescue, and how does she get back into her own body? The teaser assures us that Season 2 will be even more exciting and dramatic than Season 1.
