Nam Joo Hyuk was one of those who made it out alright in the hot mess K-drama Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, looking a dash more modern as the 13th prince but still suitably decked out. He should be the most relieved that the upcoming drama adaption of manhwa Bride of the Water God moved the setting from the fantasy period original to modern times, for the most part, because his look as the water god Habaek is so godawful as to be borderline unwatchable. Like, so so so badly styled with the two toned blue hair that appears to be wearing him and not the other way around. But once his Habaek goes to the modern times looking for his human bride then the eye sore goes away and everyone in the cast including Shin Se Kyung, Krystal, Gong Myung, and Im Joo Hwan thankfully looks their part.
