Storyline Bride of The Water God
This romantic fantasy genre drama tells the story of a Water God named Habaek (Nam Joo Hyuk). The story is, he was created to be a King in the realm of the gods. Well, to complete the coronation process, Habaek was sent to come down to earth to collect the god’s stone which was in the hands of other gods. For his task to run smoothly he is recommended to find descendants of god servants to help him while in the human world.
Trials and trials don’t just happen to humans, guys. The proof is that the future king of the gods still gets the test from the divine. When descending to earth, something error occurred which made Habaek fail to ‘land’ at the proper coordinates. So that makes him have to make an emergency landing in a park. Incidentally at that time, a psychiatrist named Yoon So Ah was shouting his turmoil. The meeting that was classified as an incident ended up causing a misunderstanding between the two of them. Unfortunately for Habaek, he also lost the power of his god, making it difficult to prove to his god.
