Not watching Alchemy but I appreciate its existence? Like it looks and feels different than the regular kdrama and that alone makes me want to root for it. I was expecting it to crash and burn cause idol actors plus neither of the leads pull big ratings and while hong sisters have made hits it is still a bold attempt and King was an indication that people won’t blindly watch based on the writer either, so yeah while it isn’t the next Goblin or anything but to see it doing relatively fine makes me go yayy the doors for fantasy kdrama haven’t been closed…yet

    The fantasy powers are just right for my taste, with cool special effects and a touch of intrigue. I don’t like to have to work too hard at unraveling fantasy fiction, and this story is easy enough to follow but still holds unknowns. It reminds me of Gu Family Book, anyone remember that one? 😆 I like Mu-deok, she’s smart and capable.

      I really enjoyed GFB (no, I didn’t hate the finale). ^^

    I agree with everything you wrote. I gave up on Alchemy too, but I may revisit it sometime later.

    I love fantasy! my only problem with it is that at the end someone “has to die” or “go back” to their original lives like nothing happend.
    They always try to ruined or ships.
