There’s been movement in the casting rounds for the upcoming modernized drama version of manhwa Bride of the Water God. No, the male lead hasn’t been swapped out and remains Nam Joo Hyuk, whose casting is coming at a better time in his career after getting much love in the underrated Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. That doesn’t mean he’s the right actor to play Haebak but we’ll have to wait and judge. The change is with his potential leading lady who is now for sure not going to be Moon Chae Won. Her agency revealed this week that she turned down the role and the casting has fallen through. I want to see her back onscreen but after the disappointment of Goodbye Mr. Black has me preferring that she wait to get a more suitable drama as this one has lots of unknowns starting from taking a well known historical fantasy story and tweeking it for modern times.
