Behind-the-scenes shots of tvN’s upcoming new drama is gaining a lot of attention among Korean netizens.
Titled “Bride of the Water God” (하백의 신부), the highly-anticipated K-Drama stars “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” actor Nam Joo Hyuk, “The Girl Who Sees Smells” actress Shin Se Kyung, f(x)’s Krystal, Lim Ju Hwan, and Gong Myung of 5urprise.
Based on Yoon Mi Kyung’s 2006 comic book of the same name, “Bride of the Water God” tells the story of a girl named So Ah who is offered as a sacrifice to water god Ha Baek to stop a long drought in a village.
However, tvN’s live-action adaption relocates the characters and story to modern day Seoul, which sees So Ah (played by Shin Se Kyung) as a heavily-indebted neuropsychiatrist who runs her own practice.
