While both Nam Joo Hyuk and Shin Se Kyung are undeniably very beautiful human beings, they really don’t look like the living equivalents of their characters in the manhwa Bride of the Water God. It’s mostly due to the illustrative style being overly florid but juxtaposing the drawn visuals with the drama leads in the first teaser emphasizes the visual disconnect. Nam Joo Hyuk looms over Shin Se Kyung as they are bathed in the soft street lamp under spring blooms, but he seems like her younger brother type and her a pretty office lady getting a confession from the dongsaeng at work. They do make a gorgeous tableau and maybe that’s enough to check this drama out when it premieres the first week of July on tvN.
