For any fantastical movie to create the right cinematic experience that the audience always crave, it must utilise CGI to create such intriguing moment. The ongoing Kdrama series— Alchemy of Souls do not render less, so far, it puts CGI to good use to create a unique and mesmerising experience for the viewers. First, Daeho, the surreal setting of Alchemy of Souls piques our curiosity from the beginning of the series. Much more so, the impressive fight by the frozen lake plunges us directly into the midst of things. Here, many mages have mastered the craft of the alchemy of souls— a kind of magic/spell casting that involves soul-shifting. Naturally, this process goes against the law of natural existence. However, by their power, they (the mages) could colonize innocent bodies. Two of these occasions results in the existence of the main leads: Jang Uk and Mu Deok Yi. While Jang Uk is a product of soul shifting by royal command, Naksu now Mu Deok, casts her last spell to save her soul. In most cases, however, the result seems disappointing. Naksu, the daredevil assassin who has mastered all the four creeds of soul shifting fails to land her soul in a physically fit body but rather in the frail body of Mu Deok. Sometimes too, the notion, “power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely” comes to play as some soul shifters grow wild and corrupt, feeding on souls and turning men into rocks. But what strikes us more is the hypnotizing scenery that comes with the process, though terrifying. For instance, when Jang Gang casts his spell to shifts the soul of the King, we are teleported to an entirely new world of fantasy of water, fire and brimstone.
