Alchemy of Souls season 2 unveiled a brand new poster on November 23, 2022.

The poster for the second season was released by tvN ahead of the show's premiere on December 10, and featured actors Lee Jae-wook and Go Yoon-jung. It showed Jang Wook (Lee Jae-wook) holding Naksuโ€™s (Go Yoon-jung) hand tenderly.

Alchemy of SoulsSeason 1 Season 2

Alchemy of Souls is set in Daeho, a fictional place where mages and kings learn and perform sorcery. Written by the Hong Sisters, the riveting drama revolves around the stories of several different characters whose fates are interlinked.

In the previous season, Naksu's character was played by actress Jung So-min. In the upcoming season, she has been replaced by actress Go Yoon-jung.

New Alchemy of Souls season 2 poster captures Lee Jae-wook and Go Yoon-jungโ€™s sizzling chemistry

In the recently released poster, Jang Wook is seen tenderly kissing Naksuโ€™s hands. What is interesting is the mysterious bracelet seen on the latter's wrist. From the poster, it looks like Jang Wook is trying to cut off the bracelet. The dark background and serious expressions add further intrigue to the poster.

Jang Wookโ€™s gaze seems almost menacing whereas Naksuโ€™s expression looks melancholy. The dynamic change in the expressions of both the characters from season 1 has sparked curiosity about the fate of their relationship.

When translated, the Korean text written on the poster, means:

โ€œYou, the only one who shines deep in my darkness.โ€

The text further raises questions about whose "darkness" is being referred to. Given the serious expressions of both Jang Wook and Naksu, it is difficult to gauge which of them will be capable of enlightening the other's world.


Prior to his fan-favorite role in Alchemy of Souls season 1, Lee Jae-wook has starred in several notable K-dramas, including Search: WWW, Extraordinary You, Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, Move to Heaven, and many others. He has been cast opposite actresses such as Go Ah-ra and Kim Hye-yoon.

Go Yoon-jung is known for her strong and unforgettable performances in hit dramas such as Sweet Home, Law School, and many others. She has worked alongside actors Song Kang and Kim Bum.

Needless to say, the new poster for Alchemy of Souls season 2 sent fans into a frenzy, with many of them taking to Twitter to speculate about what might be awaiting them in the upcoming season.

Here are some reactions from Twitter:
