Well, this trailer is pretty! Another short teaser trailer is out 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).
Much to my surprise, we see Nam Joo Hyuk decked out is lush heavenly attire with silvery blue flowing hair as he overlooks his water kingdom. He then proclaims that he is the ruler of the water kingdom, Ha Baek.
I didn’t expect to be seeing any of these lovely fantasy costumes since the drama had moved to the modern days. But now that I’ve seen it, I sure do hope we get some scenes in this heavenly realm! They can’t just tease me right?
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 whose family has served him for generations. 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.
