K-dramas are not only a gateway to enjoyable content—they also serve as a bridge for friendships to be formed! Case in point: Lee Jae Wook, Hwang Minhyun, Shin Seung Ho, and Yoo In Soo became chingus after filming the fantasy series, Alchemy Of Souls.
Along with Jung So Min, the four lead the drama that follows young mages whose souls were swapped due to magic. Jae Wook portrays the troublemaker Jang Wook, Minhyun is the smart Seo Youl, Seung Ho plays the moody Go Won, and In Soo is cast as the extroverted Dang Gu.
When the camera is not rolling, you'll see them taking cute group photos like this:

Jae Wook, Minhyun, Seung Ho, and In Soo are all around the same age and this is the reason they easily hit it off with each other. ICYDK, South Korea follows a ~hierarchy~: It's comfier to speak to someone *informally* and become friends if you're born in the same year.
The actors shared details about their friendship when they graced the cover of 1st Look. According to the ~*flower four*~ of Alchemy Of Souls, the drama paved the way for them to get closer. "Since we were able to find things we had in common, it was easy for us to talk to and understand each other. Now, we know each other so well we can finish each other's sentences."
Filming a drama can be draining at times but because the actors are close, they're able to energize themselves by joking around and having chit-chats!
"All three of the other guys are actors that had previously made me think, 'Wow, that actor is really cool. While working together on this drama, I learned so many things from watching them—acting, obviously, but lots of other things as well. Since it was comfortable and fun whenever we met on set, the atmosphere during filming became better and better. We often go out to eat delicious food together and things like that," said Minhyun.
The four are very supportive of each other's new projects and you can see it in how they promote their friends' dramas on their Instagram accounts. In January, Minhyun and Seung Ho even attended All Of Us Are Dead's promotional event in Seoul to show their love for In Soo (who transformed into the immortal zombie Gwi Nam)!
With 12 more episodes to go and part two in the works, we'll definitely get to see more of the quartet in the weeks to come. Yay!
You can watch new episodes of Alchemy Of Souls on Netflix every Saturday and Sunday.
