A slew of failed novel/manhwa adaptations in recent years hasn’t dimmed K-dramas preference for this genre, nor has it dimmed my interest whenever there is an adaptation based on the source material story. The timing has been set for the historical fantasy to modern fantasy setting transferred K-drama adaptation of Bride of the Water God, one of the most well known manhwas in recent years for the epic world building and romance element. It’s also coming at a good time with China having a drama hit with the gods and goddesses romance Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms. Cable network tvN has scheduled the drama for a July 2017 premiere on Mon-Tues following sci-fi drama Circle, the drama has been filming for two months now and may be done or nearly done by the time it starts airing, either way I wonder how much fantasy special effects will be needed if the drama is set in modern times. I like how handsome male lead Nam Joo Hyuk looks in character (see below) and can’t wait to see filming pictures of the rest of the cast Shin Se Kyung, Krystal, and Gong Myung.
