A second trailer has been released for the upcoming tvN drama Bride of the Water God 2017 starring Nam Joo Hyuk (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo) and Shin Se Kyung (Six Flying Dragons).
This one has a very beautiful and dream like quality as Nam Joo Hyuk and Shin Se Kyung exchange romantic looks at each other through a fish tank. He says he’s been waiting for her and calls her his servant. She calls him her god.
Although it was another short trailer, this drama really knows how to set up the romantic and fantasy feel of the story. I’m anxious to see more!
Bride of the Water God 2017 is loosely based off of the popular manhwa about a village suffering from drought that offers young women as sacrifices to a water god. One of the sacrifices eventually becomes his bride.
The drama version moves the setting into modern day Seoul with Nam Joo Hyuk as the Water God and Shin Se Kyung as a neuropsychiatrist running her own office that is struggling to pay off the massive debt incurred by her father and school. The writer penned Misaeng and Arang and the Magistrate while the PD did Nine: Nine Time Travels and Queen In Hyun’s Man.
Bride of the Water is scheduled to premiere July 3 on tvN.
