The Bride of the Water God / Habaek Review

12:14 PM

Salam and hello!

The Bride of Habaek (Hangul: 하백의 신부 2017; RR: Habaekui Shinbu 2017; lit. Bride of Habaek 2017) is a South Korean television drama spin-off of the 2006 sunjung manhwa Bride of the Water God by Yoon Mi-kyung. The drama stars Shin Se-kyung, Nam Joo-hyuk, Lim Ju-hwan, Krystal Jung and Gong Myung. It aired on cable channel tvN every Monday and Tuesday at 22:55 (KST) from July 3, 2017 to August 22, 2017.


When the narcissistic water god Ha-baek (Nam Joo-hyuk) visits earth in order to find a stone powerful enough to help him claim his throne, he seeks out the help of his servant and destined bride, psychiatrist So-ah (Shin Se-kyung), whose family is fated to serve the water god for generations. The problem is that she has no belief in the gods and initially mistakes him for suffering from delusions. Things get even stranger when the wind god Bi-ryeom (Gong Myung), the water goddess Mu-ra (Krystal), and the demi-god Hu-ye (Lim Ju-hwan) show up to complicate things. - source

Hana's Thoughts
Watched all 16 episodes. Overall the story was moving slow at first, and was not as interesting as Goblin, but the story line itself intrigued me to follow it until the end. Lim Ju Hwan & Gong Myung are waaayyy cuter than Nam Joo Hyuk in this story in my opinion 😝

What a twist! Finally watched the finale today and I guess its not baaaaddd lah.

But still, story wise it lost to Goblin. But I love the way they capture the scenes and all, different from most dramas that I watched.

Til then blurbers~!
