Bride of the Water God- Review

Plot according to Wiki
When the narcissistic water god Ha-baek (Nam Joo-hyuk) visits earth in order to find a stone powerful enough to help him claim his throne, he seeks out the help of his servant and destined bride, psychiatrist So-ah (Shin Se-kyung), whose family is fated to serve the water god for generations. The problem is that she has no belief in the gods and initially mistakes him for suffering from delusions. Things get even stranger when the wind god Bi-ryeom (Gong Myung), the water goddess Mu-ra (Krystal), and the semi-god Hu-ye (Lim Ju-hwan) show up to complicate things.


My Take
Water God Ha baek is sent to earth to gather 3 god stones from 3 other gods who were entrusted with them. Which where Moo-Ra and Bi Ryeom, and Joo Dong. He needs to collect the stones before the red times comes in for the sixth time in his world. The high priest also tasks him to find out why the god stones are placed in the human realm. When he first comes to earth he loses the coordinates of the stones, the map, and his powers. His faithful servant and lower god Nam So-Ri tries to help him as much as he can but they can’t seem to find what they are looking for. They find the God’s servant So-Ah and try to awaken her. He doesn’t awake her and So-Ah believes he has mental issues and being a psychiatrist she keeps turning him away to go to a hospital that is better suited to help what she believes is his particular needs. Along the way she meets Moo-Ra and Bi Ryeom. Bi Ryeom happens to be a former classmate of hers. She gets placed in danger because of these gods and Ha baek ends up getting powers back only to save her.

So-Ah’s medical practice is endanger but she ends up encountering CEO Shin Hoo-ye who ends up fascinated with So-Ah’s personality. Over the course of the show we find out CEO Shin is part god part human and that the other god’s fear and do not tolerate him. So-Ah’s personality she believes he is a good human and gives him warmth and he ends up falling in love with her but Ha baek is in love with her and Moo-Ra is in love with Ha baek and Bi Ryeom is in love with Moo-Ra. This love square ensures hilarity and risky situations that entertain and break your heart, while still trying to help Ha baek become king/emperor over the god realm.
Why I like this drama

I really like this drama because the plot moves so seamlessly and kept my attention for all 16 episodes. The actors and actresses did really well portraying emotions and developing their characters. I feel we saw depth and just 2-dimensionals characters we would expect from an adaptation of a magna. The chemistry was great among the main characters and supporting characters and the little side stories enriched the overall plot. I felt that Ha baek character going from arrogant to one that could relate to human was indeed great but the development of Bi-Ryeom and Moo-Ra’s relationship was one that stood out and made me feel happy that they got a happy ending as well. I feel this drama definitely answered all and any questions that it brought to a viewer's mind well watching. It is light hearted at times, funny, emotional, and really endearing.

I give this drama a solid 4/5 or 8.5/10.

Drama Reaction~
Hey guys! Your girl is back again except this time we are going to talk about dramas. (FYI the order has nothing to do with ranking.) Drama: Boys over Flowers Genre: Teen, Romance, School Plot: Set at a famous high school for the super-wealthy, this is a puppy love story centered on a poor girl and the F4 gang of rich kids headed by the rough and fearless Jun-pyo Koo. Geum Jan-Di (Hye-seon Ku) is a girl from a poor family but has an unrivaled sense of optimism and drive and is by chance admitted to a prestigious private high school. There she meets the infamous group of four astonishingly good looking and rich boys who are known as F4. The group's leader is Koo Jun-Pyo (Min-ho Lee), who is a spoiled heir to world-leading conglomerate Shinhwa. He is joined by mysterious and breathlessly handsome Yun Ji-Hu (Hyeon-jung Kim), So Lee-Jeong (Kim Beom), and Song Woo-Bin (Kim Jun). Their love story moves from Seoul to New Caledonia to Macau. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Boys_Over_Flowers_-_Korean_Drama Thoughts: Honeslty this drama was amazing. It had a TON of laughing scenes and was able to show the true struggles of being in a rich to poor relationship. Although, I did hate his Koo Jun-Pyo's mother and his attitude towards the end (even though he did it in order to help her). TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY NEWBIE TO KDRAMA. Drama: Cheese in the Trap Genre: Teen, Romance Plot: Drama depicts the delicate relationship between female university student Hong Seol (Kim Go-Eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae-Jin). Hong-Seol works part-time due to her family's poor background. Yoo Jung is good looking, gets good grades, athletic and has a kind personality, but he has a dark side. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Cheese_in_the_Trap Thoughts: Okay this drama was complicated but, you still need to watch it in order to understand what Im saying. Personally, I thought that the ending to this drama was awful and sorta wanted more from it. Although, in the middle of the drama I remember there were some issues between the webtoon artist and the producer for the show... so I guess thats why the drama ended the way it did... but dont take my word for it. lol Dispite that I think the drama was good and I think Lee Sung-Kyung did an amazing job in acting as Baek In- Ha. Drama: Coffee Prince Genre: Romance, Drama, Comedy Plot: Coffee Prince’s Flagship Store is a TV series that revolves around the love life and dreams of four young people who meet together at a cafe. Han-gyeol (Gong Yoo) is a smart young man who hates to be tied down to one career in his life. Abhorring the idea of joining the family business, he is ordered by his grandmother to manage a cafe. Unable to disobey his grandmother, he reluctantly takes over the responsibility of running a cafe and begins to immerse himself in the gourmet coffee business. One day, he meets Eun-chan, a cheerful girl who has an unpredictable personality, and learns the meaning of true love.. Source: http://asianwiki.com/Coffee_Prince Thoughts: (the first drama I watched coming into kdrama) ALL TIME FAVORITE!!!!! This drama was a cute innocent love that has a funny plot twist in the middle. Honestly, Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun- Hye make a cute couple and they show it throughout the episodes. Furthermore, the ending to this show is so cute and honeslty I sort of wish they made a season 2 so we could see what their future will bring. THIS WOULD TOTALLY BE THE BEST DRAMA FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING INTO KDRAMA!!!!~~ Drama: The Heirs Genre: Romance, Teen, School Plot: "The Heirs" depicts the friendships, rivalries and love lives of young, rich heirs led by Kim Tan (Lee Min-Ho) and a girl named Cha Eun-Sang (Park Shin-Hye). Unlike the others, Cha Eun-Sang is considered ordinary and comes from a poor background. 18-year-old Cha Eun-Sang lives with her mother who is mute. Her mother works as a housekeeper and Eun-Sang also works part-time jobs to help out. One day, Eun-Sang's older sister (Yoon Jin-Seo) calls from the U.S. and informs them that she will marry. Eun-Sang's mother then asks Eun-Sang to send her older sister some money from her savings account. Eun-Sang isn't happy with her situation and decides to go to the U.S. herself to see if she can start a better life with her sister. When Eun-Sang arrives in California she is in for a shock. Her older sister lives in a filthy home with a deadbeat boyfriend who seems violent. Her sister is also not getting married or going to school and works full-time as a waitress. When Eun-Sang finally tracks down her sister working at a beach front restaurant, she takes the money Eun-Sang brought for her wedding and leaves without even saying goodbye. Eun-Sang's dreams of starting a better life in America quickly vanishes and she crumbles to the ground in tears. Meanwhile, Kim Tan is not your typical high school student, but a handsome and wealthy Korean heir to a large conglomeration. He is sitting out on the patio of the beach front restaurant, watching everything unfold between Eun-Sang and her sister. Kim Tan's American friend then sees a ziplock bag with a powdery substance fall out of Eun-Sang's suitcase and runs over to scoop it up. Kim Tan knows immediately that the ziplock bag doesn't contain drugs, but rather powder grain to make traditional Korean drinks. Soon, Eun-Sang runs off after Kim Tan's friend and Kim Tan goes to help Eun-Sang. When the dust is settled, Eun-Sang walks out of a police station and her passport is temporarily confiscated. With nowhere to go for Eun-Sang, Kim Tan offers to let her stay at his home. Although they seem to come from different worlds, they quickly develop a rapport for each other. But, when Kim Tan is at school, Eun-Sang meets a girl named Rachel (Kim Ji-Won). Rachel informs Eun-Sang that she is Kim Tan's fiance and she demands that Eun-Sang leaves his home immediately. Eventually, Eun-Sang returns to South Korea. Kim Tan now feels nothing but emptiness after Eun-Sang's departure. He decides to go back to Korea even though his older stepbrother Won (Choi Jin-Hyuk) strongly opposes his return. When Kim Tan gets back to his luxurious mansion like home, he sees someone briefly that resembles Eun-Sang. Kim Tan goes to his mother Ki-Ae (Kim Sung-Ryoung) and asks about the unfamiliar, but familiar girl that he briefly saw. His mother tells him that the girl is their housekeeper's daughter and her name is Cha Eun-Sang. She's also staying in their home. Source: http://asianwiki.com/The_Heirs_-_Korean_Drama Thoughts: This drama had so many twist to it and personally if I saw Park Shin-Hye cry one more time I was actually going to loose it. lol Besides that I thought that this drama had you attached the whole time, dispite the rough times in their relationship. Listen I know this drama has a lot of episodes but, you have to fight through it because the ending is totally worth it~~! Drama: Marriage Contract Genre: Romance, Slice of Life Plot: Ji-Hoon (Lee Seo-Jin) has a cynical personality due to his family background. Even though he comes from a rich family, his mother had an affair with a married man and they had Ji-Hoon. From a young age, he became separated from his mother and began to live with his father's family. One day, he learns that his mother has a liver disease and she doesn't have much time left to live. Her only hope is to get a liver transplant. Ji-Hoon becomes desperate. At that time, he meets Hye-Soo (Uee) and her daughter Eun-Sung (Shin Rin-Ah).

Source: http://asianwiki.com/Marriage_Contract Thought: When I first started out with this drama I sorta guess the typical sign a contract saying that were married, but in the end they fall in love. WRONG! This drama adds more content and issues to this drama that makes it unpredictable. Furthermore, it had a lot of tear-up moments towards the end of the drama but in the end it was totally worth it. Plus, Shin Rin-Ah (child actor) was so cute through out the whole thing. Drama: Marrige Not Dating Genre: Romance Plot: A perfect man, Kong Ki-Tae (Yeon Woo-Jin), is forced to marry by his family, but he doesn't to marry. To make his family give up, he introduces a woman, Joo Jang-Mi (Han Groo), to them that they would never accept.

Source: http://asianwiki.com/My_Secret_Romance Thoughts: We start out with a guy and a girl who basically get drunk and then have an one night stand. From this the two gets caught up in misunderstandings but slowly come back together. This drama is cute, and funny at times I WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND TO WATCH THIS SOON IF YOU HAVENT SEEN IT YET. Drama: Strong Woman Do Bong-Soon Genre: Romance, Supernatural Plot: Bong-Soon (Park Bo-Young) was born with superhuman like strength. Her strength is hereditary and passed along only to the women in her family. Her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character.

Source: http://asianwiki.com/Strong_Woman_Do_Bong-Soon Thoughts: This drama was action packed throughout all of the episodes. Furhtermore, there was a nice mix of funny and cute moments within the shows. I commend Park Bo-Young in her acting in the drama. I also MAJOR KEY COMMEND Kim Won-Hae for his amazing acting through this drama (you probally wont understand unless you watch the drama). THIS IS ANOTHER DRAMA THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND PEOPLE TO WATCH.

Yoon Doo-joon has been cast to play a top actor who can’t speak a single word unless it’s been scripted for him. He’s a childish character who becomes a DJ for a live radio show, which never goes according to script.The story begins with him being trapped in a radio booth with the heroine for two hours during a live broadcast. Kim So-hyun is the radio show’s writer, with five years’ experience on the job. She deals with guests who don’t show up, appeases the immature star DJ, and takes all the crap from the production company, all with incredible endurance, planning, and action. Her trademark is her perseverance and endless optimism, and she can sleep anywhere no matter how small or uncomfortable the space. She’s the type of character to throw herself into action rather than debate whether something is possible. (Source) -- Are any of you watching these dramas?
