ALTERNATE TITLES: 하백의 신부 2017
New episodes every Monday and Tuesday.
Nam Joo Hyuk (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) and Shin Se Kyung (Six Flying Dragons) star in a modern retelling of a supernatural romance. When the god of water descends upon Earth and seeks the help of his destined bride, he first has to convince her that he isn’t a delusional maniac. Habaek (Nam Joo Hyuk) is a water god.
Don’t let the legends fool you, though. Gone are the days of gods being old men in robes. Habaek is a chic youth with impeccable fashion and flawless hair. He is also narcissistic and wants his heavenly throne at all costs.
Habaek comes to Earth to find a magical stone that will grant him the power he wants. And he expects his destined bride and servant to help him. Just one problem, though: His bride does not believe he even exists.
So Ah (Shin Se Kyung) is a psychiatrist. She has her own practice, but she is also buried in debt. Her family is allegedly cursed to serve the gods forever. However, So Ah is a realist with no time for superstition. So when the doctor meets a man who claims to be the legendary water god and who expects her to serve him as his bride, her diagnosis is that he is simply delusional.
And before Habaek can convince his wife of who he is and what he needs, some of his “friends” join him on Earth. Hoo Ye (Im Ju Hwan from Uncontrollably Fond) is a demigod. A CEO of a resort, Hoo Ye also happens to fall in love with So Ah and therefore becomes Habaek’s main rival. Moo Ra (f(x) and Heirs’ Krystal Jung) is a water goddess. A beautiful and famous actress, Moo Ra has a one-sided love with Habaek and understandably dislikes his wife. Bi Ryeom (Gong Myung of 5urprise and Drinking Solo) is a wind god who secretly loves Moo Ra and holds a grudge against the man that she loves.
With all these people gunning for them, it is now up to Habaek and So Ah to find the magical stone and restore a balance of power in the heavens. If they can stop bickering first, that is.
Directed by Kim Byung Soo (Nine, Queen In Hyun’s Man) and written by Jung Yoon Jung (Incomplete Life (Misaeng), Arang and the Magistrate), The Bride of the Water God is a modern take on the popular historical fantasy manhwa Bride of the Water God.
