tvN has finally revealed the first teaser trailer for its highly-anticipated K-Drama, “Bride Of The Water God” (하백의 신부).
Starring YG Entertainment actor Nam Joo Hyuk (of “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” fame) and Shin Se Kyung (of “The Girl Who Sees Smells” fame), the upcoming series is 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.
The brief promo clip (above) shows both actors looking into each other’s eyes while standing under a cherry blossom tree. It’s doesn’t show much but the chemistry between Shin and Nam is amazing.
It was also reported that the drama’s cast recently completed their first script reading, which was attended by Shin, Nam, f(x)’s Krystal, Gong Myung, and Im Joo Hwan.
With a screenplay by Jung Yoon Jung (of “Arang and the Magistrate” fame), the Monday-Tuesday drama is set to premiere on 3rd July. It was also reported that actors Kang Ha Neul and Yang Dong Geun will appear in the drama as cameos.
