Regarding the upcoming second part of “Alchemy of Souls,” which is set three years after Part 1, Lee Jae Wook commented, “After the end of ‘Alchemy of Souls’ [Part 1], I had exactly one week to reorganize. After finishing all my overdue activities, the week went by in an instant. Given that, I lacked the strength to accept Jang Wook three years later. Because of that, filming was slow at first. The process of accurately understanding and capturing my character was a bit difficult.”
Now that he’s overcome that hurdle, Lee Jae Wook talked about the similarities between him and Jang Wook. “I believe Jang Wook of ‘Alchemy of Souls Part 2’ is incredibly similar to Lee Jae Wook as a person. In the drama, there’s a scene where Jang Wook drinks by himself, and I also occasionally need a drink. When I need to organize something. I am also growing everyday and I take time to look back on what kind of person I am. Looking at these things, I think, ‘Jang Wook and I have quite a lot in common.’”
Just like Jang Wook has Mu Deok (Jung So Min) in “Alchemy of Souls,” Lee Jae Wook has his own group of trusty friends. The actor revealed, “[SF9’s] Rowoon, who I met during the drama ‘Extraordinary You,’ is that kind of person to me.”
He continued, “We have similar concerns so when we talk, there are a lot [of takeaways] that remain. Even if we meet often, he’s a friend who makes me feel thankful for each of those days. One of the friends we also meet up with is Ahn Hyo Seop. The three of us meet up for drinks and talk a lot about this and that.”
Part 2 of “Alchemy of Souls” will premiere on December 10 at 9:10 p.m. KST and you can watch a teaser here!
