Premiere Watch: Jinxed at Very first, Alchemy of Souls
June just keeps delivering far more and far more premieres, and it is not more than however! This week we have two shows on the lighter side of factors, with a fantasy rom-com about a lady who alterations fates, and a further fantasy rom-com (perhaps?) about trapped souls and magic. Each most likely served with the requisite hijinks.
Jinxed at Very first
Time slot: Wednesday-Thursday
Genre: Fantasy, rom-com
Episode count: 16
Factors to watch: Possessing been in dramaland for way as well extended a even though, it is come to be a trick of the trade to constantly hold an eye on rom-coms that are flying below the radar. Or that look as if their premises have the possible to be a disaster. In some cases it pays off, due to the fact dramaland inverts our expectations, and we get a super entertaining gem that pulls off its weird idea without the need of a second believed. And that is exactly where I presently am with Jinxed at Very first — not terribly pulled in, but also on higher alert for a show that could be a lot greater than it sounds (specially with the PD calling it a “happy virus” drama). With increasing star Na In-woo as our jinxed hero, and Seohyun as the lady with the energy to alter fortunes, this just may possibly be crazy sufficient to operate.
TLDR: Undesirable luck, very good fortune, goddess Seohyun, vibrant and cute vibes
Alchemy of Souls
Time slot: Saturday-Sunday
Genre: Fantasy, romance
Episode count: 20
Factors to watch: Speaking of crazy sufficient to operate, that is the exact same mindset I’m bringing to the Hong sisters’ most current supplying. The early problems behind the scenes may possibly have worked in our favor, due to the fact if practically nothing else, Jung So-min and Lee Jae-wook appear like a lot of entertaining with each other in the promo supplies. But far more than the cast, we also have to contemplate the setup — ideal now a confusing mythological and pseudo-historical setting rife with magic, swordplay, and soul-swapping. I do not want to say outright that it will take a lot for this drama to operate, but it will take a lot for this drama to operate. Either way, it is pulling in a lot of buzz, and will most likely do the exact same with eyeballs when it premieres.
TLDR: Fantasy, magic, Lee Jae-wook, Hong sisters, suspension of disbelief expected
