The mini-series revolves around the life of a talented swordsman named Nok Su, played by Go Yoon Jung. During a fierce battle, the character nearly met her demise. The female lead shifted her soul into the body of a blind woman named Mu Deok Yi, portrayed by Jung So Min, to protect herself.
Nuk Su could not use her energy after soul shifting because the body was too weak. So, she continued to leave the life of an ordinary woman. She patiently waited for the right time to regain her power and become Nak Su again.
Since the finale for Alchemy of Souls is nearing, the production team hinted about the fate of Mu Deok Yi. She has been safely roaming around in Daeho though the people close to her knew her real identity. She did not get a chance to use her powers and struggled to find a way to help her friends in solving a mystery. Though her initial plan was to avenge her father's demise, she gradually started focussing on helping her lover, Jang Uk.
It is dangerous for Mu Deok Yi to use her powers because she is a soul shifter. Even though there were several provoking incidents for the character to use her powers, she stayed calm. The female lead knew that using her powers to fight evil could make her a monster. She always wanted to quietly observe things and take every step carefully. However, she might take an unexpected move in the upcoming episodes.
