Like all of you, the fangirls have been not so patiently waiting for the new drama, Bride of the Water God. Can we really ever get enough Nam Joo Hyuk? All I know is that the teasers for this one have me really excited for this drama to start. The whole premise of offering up a beautiful woman as a sacrifice to a handsome god means we will have great push and pull that will hopefully create a great romance we can all root for.
Bride of the Water God brings us a modern day fantasy. Our struggling heroine is psychiatrist So-A, played by Shin Se Kyung, and she is offered up as a sacrifice to Nam Joo Hyuk’s character, the Water God Ha Baek. We have a well rounded cast of secondary characters with Lim Ju Hwan as Hoo-yee who is Ha Bake’s rival, Krystal Jung as goddess Moo Ra, and Gong Myung rounds the cast out as Bi Ryum.
I am really excited for this drama to start because I really like this casting, and we have some actors and actresses who I think will be able to really make this drama stand out. After all of Nam Joo Hyuk is a great swimmer and I think he will make a perfect Water God. I’m relatively sure that some opportunity to have him standing in the rain shirtless or in the water will occur in this drama.
I’m not quite as sure about Shin Se Kyung. I haven’t really been impressed with her acting in the past. She doesn’t seem to show emotion well in my opinion and I feel like this is a role where she will need to show some emotion. I hope I am pleasantly surprised and she creates a character that I am in love with.
Bride of the Water God is set to begin July 3rd on TVN after Circle ends. I love the whole underwater feel of this teaser! Are you looking forward to this drama? Tell us why in the comments.
