The production is a drama adaptation of manhwa ‘Bride of the Water God’, and will be a spinoff told in modern day Seoul instead of the ancient times, with Nam Joo Hyuk offered the role of water God Haebak.
The original story is set in a fantasy world where a water god is offered young women as sacrifice by a village that has been plagued by many years of drought. Complications will begin when one of the sacrificed girls becomes his bride.
Nam Joo Hyuk first grabbed attention in ‘School 2015‘, and is currently melting hearts in the cute coming-of-age drama ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo‘.
‘Bride of the Water God’ is scheduled for February 2017 filming.
