The Water God so powerful and beautiful that he knows it
We’re less than a month away from the premiere of tvN’s Bride of the Water God 2017, and the show’s released another short, beautiful teaser that doesn’t really reveal anything about the plot. If the last teaser showed Nam Joo-hyuk’s (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju) water god in his deity form, this newest one brings him back down to earth, being flirty with Shin Se-kyung (Girl Who Sees Smells).
In the newest teaser, our water god, Ha-baek, and his human “servant,” So-ah, stroll through a field when dark rain clouds roll in. Ha-baek uses his magic to create a little air bubble around him, and pulls So-ah in close to shield her from the rain. Ah yes, who needs umbrellas when you have a water god around. He goes, “Did you see? This is the power of the water god,” to which So-ah replies, “Your powers are quite nice.” Pffft, did you purposely make it rain to show off?
According to some newly released info on Ha-baek, I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. He’s described as a “god fatale”—as in femme fatale—because of his good looks and his high divine status. It sounds like there’s definitely a clear hierarchy among the gods, and Ha-baek descends to earth in order to find a stone that would legitimize his succession to the throne among the gods. So, he’s not just a god, but a royal god? Lol, no wonder he has such a big head. Even in this teaser, he refers to himself as “water god-nim,” which is essentially like calling himself “your majesty/divinity.” I can’t wait until he goes head-to-head with So-ah, a pragmatic doctor who initially thinks Ha-baek is clinically delusional.
I’m actually starting to look forward to this show: The cinematography, if these teasers are anything to go by, is gorgeous, and the additional information on our titular water god has me grinning ‘cause I can see some great comedy being mined out of it. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that Bride of the Water God turns out as a beautiful fantasy rom-com as all these promos suggest.
tvN’s upcoming Bride of the Water God 2017 will follow Circle in the Monday-Tuesday slot, and will premiere on July 3.
