With her impressive acting repertoire, it's safe to say that the character of Naksu is in capable hands.

Look alive, Alchemy of Souls fans: Part 2 of the action-packed K-drama is finally dropping on Netflix! To refresh your memory, the first season concluded with Mudeok (Jung So Min) leaping into her own demise after she caused the death of Jang Uk (Lee Jae Wook), a nobleman she's served and eventually fallen in love with. The catch is, Mudeok herself is a feeble woman, and her body was only inhabited by a skilled warrior named Naksu (That's the alchemy of souls the title implies).

The series will now pick up with Naksu's soul making its way back to her own figure and Jang Uk mystically resurrecting (Is there any boring moment in this show?). While this means we'll probably only be seeing So Min in flashback scenes and cameos, we're just as excited to see the headstrong character finally come to life by way of actress Go Yoon Jung.

With the immense success of Part 1, Yoon Jung is probably facing a lot of pressure on her shoulders. We mean, there was quite an uproar when news broke out that So Min was getting "replaced" in the series. Though, if we were to look at Yoon Jung's initial slate of K-dramas, we'd say the character of Naksu is in pretty capable hands. Check out the titles she's starred in below to see what we mean:
