Bride of the Water God: Episode 08

WaterGod08-00041

 

This story is all about CEO Hoo Ye for the majority of the episode as it was revealed that he is a Half-God that the High Priest was referring to (on my previous post, I mentioned that my guess was he was one of the Minor Gods, I guess I was wrong). And their element was indeed Fire (as seen on the previous episode). But this episode does have it’s share of showing off how cheesy Habaek and So-Ah can be.

WaterGod08-00103

 

For CEO Hoo Ye, at this point I feel pity for his character. From the start of the show he was seen as a CEO of a successful company who wants to give something back to everyone (especially for the blind girl, who is quite frankly the blind girl from the first episode also. Is this blind girl really a human? or part of the Realm of the Gods who sought refuge at the human world also?). He had a painful past in the Realm of the Gods that led him to being thrown out of that world. You can’t blame the guy, but thanks to that person who adopted him, He was able to live as a human properly. The question now is why does he have the mark of Joo Dong and the Land Kingdom? This leads to various theories, either he tells the truth that he hasn’t seen Joo Dong or he was the one responsible for Joo Dong’s disappearance that leads to a bigger and darker plot on seeking revenge at the Realm of the Gods.

We get to see a new love team in the form of Yeom Mi and Nam Soo Ri (yes, you read that right). Apparently Yeom Mi seems to have a crush on Nam Soo Ri after they bumped into each other a couple of episodes ago. Is this going to be like Sunny and Grim Reaper? I hope so 🙂

 

The one thing that is similar between Habaek and Kim Shin (Goblin) is that they are afraid of zombies! I think I would still go with Kim Shin in pulling off this scene as it was more naturally funny compared how Habaek pulled it off. Poor So-Ah as she has to cover her ears from Habaek’s helpless screams at the roller coaster.

What will happen to So-Ah if she already knew that Habaek will leave her someday? Is this the fate that she will have all along?. We will have to tune in to find out.

Bride of the Water God: Episode 07

This episode shows more revelations, confessions, and SECRETS!

 

WaterGod07-00146

 

Apparently this episode revealed tons of secrets as to why Habaek lost his powers. It so happened that it involves a lot of Minor Gods in the mix. In addition it was Moo Ra who ordered Geol Rin to leave a mark on Habaek, which proves the theory that Moo Ra was jealous of the woman named as “Shin”, the woman who was able to live in the Realm of the Gods. One-sided love for both Moo Ra and Bi-Ryeum who seems to be concerned over Moo Ra when that person was brought into topic.

WaterGod07-00078

And my theory proved right as CEO Hoo Ye is not really a human but a God as well (I would assume that he is a Minor God). One proof was when he cleared a bug on the blind girls arm and it went on flames. The second one was when Habaek approached him at the final scene and told him that he was caught. What is CEO Hoo Ye’s intention? Is he the reason why Joo Dong is missing all this time?

 

On a side note, I really like how Habaek is getting jealous on this episode. It’s fun to watch So-Ah feel guilty for selling her land to CEO Hoo Ye.

This episode revealed that CEO Hoo Ye is interested in So-Ah on a personal level. At this time I have no idea if this is also part of his plan or this is something out of his playbook.

 

On the preview it shows that Hoo Ye’s ability is greater than Habaek. What kind of abilities does he have? Is it a fire element which was seen on the burnt bug on this episode? We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.

 

What do you think Hoo Ye’s powers are? just leave a comment on this blog entry. Thanks for reading and I do hope you enjoy this drama like I do.

Man to Man episode 5

This episode focused more on Seul woo wooing Do ha not only to complete his mission but also to find out his real feelings for her. The episode had a lot of swoonable and funnymoments between the couple. 

I love the quotesthat Seul woo says in every episode. One of the usual things he says is that “Love is a useful deceit and tactic to a secret agent.” Seul woo kissed do ha and she later said she stole the kiss and she should stay one meter away from her all the time.

Seul woo was speaking to the prosecutor about Do ha not being beautiful. His reaction was hilarious and i realize that he probably said so coz he couldnt believe that he would actually fall in love with a not so pretty girl. 

 Seul woo calling her up so early in thr morning to greet her then.. 


That cute hi gesture he made to Do ha the later during the day

And Do ha telling him to stay one meter away from her


During the shooting and they were extras in the scene and Seul woo romantically draped his jacket over her shoulders 

Un gwang put two and two together and met up with Seul woo. So cute that he actually roots for the pair. And what he said below was funny! Plus the scene where they were feeding each other. Seul woo’s face is priceless. 


Seul woo spent the next day not talking to Doha (i guess guys also know that manipulative move lol). When the prosecutor asked why Seul woo made a good point and said that “Dating is about reactions. It varies by the person and situation.” 

And his reaction when Doha texted him to meet. Haha so adorable he probably was starting to fall to her and was acting cute naturally. 

And after a whole day of tryin gto capture the ghost agent who is after the wood carvings (and failing to do so)  Seul woo took her on a date watching thr night skyline as she earlier mentioned that she wanted to do. There doha couldnt resist and kissed him. And Seul woo was saying ohno. He is falling in love.. 

Lastly when he took her home, her dad was waiting outside (prosecutor pulled some strings to get him out) and the dad embraced him so tightly that he had to remind himself that he is Agent K badass and have to stay focus in his mission. 
On a side note the ghost agent that ran away went instead to Seungjae’s side instead of the old guy who wanted to take Seung jae down. The NIS director remembers hin as one of their own  who left for money instead of country.

Lastly below are some collections of Seul woo’s many reactions. I  love how Park Haejin is so expressive. 

Bride of the Water God: Episode 06

More questions have been answered on this episode. It tackles how the servant thing started and we get to know more about Bi-Ryeum and Moo Ra. We get to see more sweet moments from Habaek and So-Ah

WaterGod06-00514

So it was finally revealed that the God Stones were missing (well, Moora’s God Stone that is…) Thanks to a senseless fight between Moo Ra and Bi-Ryeum. What I am curious about is the other God “Joo-Dong” who went out to find Moo Ra’s God stone but went missing. My guess is that CEO Hu-Ye is Joo-Dong himself unless they would reserve that role for Kang Haneul who was announced that he will do a cameo for this drama. We get to see a side of Bi-Ryeum being jealous as he was reaching out his hand for help to Moo Ra but was ignored. In addition, Bi-Ryeum was far more vicious in treating servants 12,000 years ago.

WaterGod06-00366

 

Speaking of servants, It was revealed that the reason why So-Ah’s descendant is a servant was due to a woman was attacked and was thrown at the water. She was able to live a good life in the Water Country before becoming ill and worried about her blind father. She was allowed to go home but ended up falling in love with the king of her country and got married. This action was seen as a betrayal by the Gods after what they did for that woman. When So-Ah asked if the name of that woman was Shim Chung, Habaek gets more infuriated. I guess that Habaek fell in love with Shim Chung and felt betrayed when he found out that Shim Chung married the king from her country. It does make sense now when Moo Ra was first introduced in the series and how she told Habaek about the pain and suffering in the past.

WaterGod06-00519

 

Habaek’s character is changing when it comes to So-Ah. We get lesser comedic antics from Habaek yet he becomes more and more concerned for So-Ah.

 

The final scene shows that So-Ah was struck by a truck. Habaek was unable use his powers to save So-Ah this time. Was the High Priest from the Water Country correct when he mentioned that So-Ah will die before Habaek returns as the new emperor? We will have to wait until next week for the answers.

Man to Man eps 3-4

Quick summary of what happened in the 2 episodes. 

Woo hyung was recovering from the car accident and was feeling down. He wanted to cancel all his activities including going to Russia for Chairman Victor’s birthday. Oh no since that’s the whole point Seoul woo posed as his bodyguard. That won’t do so he devised of a way to make him feel like working again. In the meantime Do ha and Seul woo was helping him with his line. This was a funny scene where Seul woo was acting so unemotional while Do ha was over acting. Yet woo gang chose Seul woo as his acting partner and this time Seul woo was in full acting mode to the point of crying tears. Haha. 

Seul woo sat down with woo gang to convince him to work again and woo gang mentioned that he used to love someone so much but she left him when he had an accident. They didn’t even break up she just got married to someone else. And Seul woo told him that the stockholder of Chewing entertainment is Mi eun and he should use his anger and hate to be better (or something like that). 

The next day woo gang gathered everyone and told them that he was leaving Chewing and starting his own company and his staff should think if they want to join him. Or course Do Hà is joining him. Meanwhile in another scene woo gang lashed out at the manager for not telling him about MI Eun. 

And the Russia trip is back on their schedule. The new scenes were of the team going to the party. I must say Doha looked pretty in her dress plus her hair looks so much nicer without the ugly bangs. 

The plan was when woo gang gets invited to the special room, Seul woo will have a chance to go behind the curtains and look for the wood carvings. Unfortunately Woo gang begged Chairman Victor to let Seul woo in too since they are brothers.

I just love Seul woo’s facial expressions aside from the usual stoic look such as this one when he didnt know how to tell woo gang that he doesnt want to go in and realizing his plan might backfire. 

He eventually follows them inside thinking he will just do plan b which is getting the help of the general he broke out of prison in the previous episodes. While in the secret room he saw the wood carving!! During the blackout he was able to steal the wood carving however he almost got caught so we quickly went down and grabbed Doha as if they were embracing and the guards left. Do ha was surprised and felt her heart beat fast. Seul woo told her to ignore what he did. He gave the wood carving to the prosecutor. 

b

yay! Mission Moscow is done and he can quit being a bodyguard. Back in Seoul Seul woo and prosecutor found a ring hidden inside the wood carving. Looks like they have to find the other 2 wood carvings to get the full key to work. Side note I love how Seul woo is so different when he is off duty. He wears baggy clothes and looks so chill and relaxed. 

Next up Seul woo was thinking of ways to get out of his job. At first he started creating a bomb to fake kill himself but prosecutor said it was not a good idea since it will be a big news in Korea and everyone will recognize him. Thus he suggested to do annoy woo gang even to fire him or let him quit. Seul woo looks like he will be relishing playing the bad guy and get back at woo gwang. 

The next day Seul woo went to the shoot late with an annoyed expression and sat down in woo gangs chair. And basically tried to piss everyone off. But funnily woo gang though he was sick or in a bad mood and even offered to take him to the hospital while the 2 girl staff thought he was a hot bad boy. 

Do ha still could not get over what Seul woo did in Russia and her best friend said that Seul woo obviously likes her and the way to determine is jealousy and worry. 

Later Seul woo told woo gang he wanted to quit but he didn’t accept his resignation. I felt bad for woo gang since he really felt like they were close while Seul woo wanted to go so badly. 

Woo gwang suggested to have a team dinner at his house to celebrate their new company. . During the dinner Seul woo kept his bad mood attitude while Do ha felt bad coz she thought he was quitting because of her. And started drinking and no one wants a drunk Do Ha. So Seul woo got up and drank 2 so just and told her to stop drinking. It was funny that Do Ha misinterpreted his action was worrying about her while the only reason Seul woo wanted her to stop was so he won’t be subjected a her drunkenness and he had to drink so much so ju.

After drinking the soju Seul woo got up and left. Do ha followed and told him that he must really like her but she doesn’t. Seul woo almost laughed and realized that she must have thought he actually liked her when he was just using her for his mission. And so he said it doesn’t matter dont worry about it and went home. 

The next day we see do ha visiting her dad in prison. She is not happy because it has been the 8th time he was jailed for fraud. Then he asked if Do ha still has that thing that he gave her before and that he needs it. (I think it’s something related to the wood carvings because the prosecutor and the other guy was talking about a CI who has information). 

After Doha went to Seul woo’s houseto talk to him. Seul woo looks pissed that she is so dramatic and keeps thinking he likes her so he got really brutal and told her that he will never like her type. He was so harsh that Do Hà was left crying from his hurtful words. And as he left the cafe he got a call from the prosecutor saying that he has to stay as a bodyguard for the next mission. Seul woo’s was so angry coz he just dissed and hurt Do ha so how can he just take back his words he hurled? Good thing he is a quick thinker so as Do ha went out he grabbed her and kissed her. 

Here’s some pics of Seul woo during their talks and I did a screenshot coz he looks so fine. 

Comments

Oh no while I feel bad for Doha being used by Seulwoo I still don’t like this match because I feel that they are just too different. And if I were Doha I would slap Seul woo for saying mean things then kissing her and confusing her. And looks like Seulwoo will be kissing up to her since he needs that thing that her father has which is in Do ha’s possession. I am going to root for Do ha in thr next episode as she tries to cut him down coz he deserves it. 

As for Mieun I didn’t recap her parts but it looks like she broke up with Woo gwang to marry Seung jae to help the other guy for something I don’t know yet. But it’s obvious she still loves him and is trying to support him the way she can now. 

I like the lighter side of Seul woo with his funny reactions and chilling at his garage even when he is plotting or making bombs. I also feel bad that he probably doesn’t have a lot of friends and the Chewing team might be the closest he has for a family. I’m excited for his next mission in Bangkok I wonder what craziness he has to do and how he can continue being a bodyguard without exposing himself. I also hope that he will start to genuinely like woo gang and have more b romance moments. 

I hope there will be more storyline for Woo gang aside from being an actor. Hope he starts investigating on his own about his accident. Maybe he will find out Seoul woo’s secret and help him. Anything aside from just being funny and shooting a film. 

Seung jae and the other guy’s story is something I don’t really care about. Will wait until they discover about Seul woo then maybe the action will begin. 

Bride of the Water God: Episode 05

 

A huge step when it comes to story progression! We have some of our questions answered on this episode.

WaterGod05-01035

Habaek realizes that his powers only return when she saves So-Ah from danger. As it was revealed when he saved her again in a road accident caused by the mysterious man who was seen following So-Ah in the previous episode. Thanks to Habaek’s super human ability to learn quickly. He was able to prove his conclusion that the man is trying to put So-Ah in an accident. Thank goodness Nam Soo Ri survived the car crash, just leaving him charred all over.

WaterGod05-00154

The mystery of the assailant is now over as So-Ah can now focus on serving Habaek which demands for new clothes, a new phone an a 12 course dinner. Initially So-Ah failed to cook so they ended up eating Ramyun but thanks to a cooking show. They got to share a wonderful dinner. I think we can see the signs that Habaek now cares for So-Ah as he switched plates with her and offered her a slice of Apple (Sagwa in Korean means “Apple” and at the same time “Apologize”). I guess he’s becoming more concerned about his servant.

 

We finally get to know more about Bi-Ryeum. Apparently he was the one who gave So-Ah the ring (as a college friend who went to Rome). It was also revealed that Bi-ryeum gave 20 more of those rings to other people whose lives went really well. Since So-ah buried it at a park, that explains why she is getting these misfortunes.

We get the glimpse of how Bi-Ryeum has feelings for Moo Ra. He agreed once to Moo Ra to make Habaek jealous. In addition we saw a part of his personality wherein he will use any means to see what he wants to see, even up to the point of putting So-Ah in danger again.

 

The next question is… Where are the God Stones? Habaek seems to realize that both Bi-Ryeum and Moo Ra lost their God Stones. Who has it? Time will tell

Network: JTBC / Netflix
Episodes: 16
Release Date: April 21 – June 10, 2017

Country: South Korea

Plot
A longtime celebrity Yeo Woon-gwang (Park Sung-woong) suddenly has a need for a bodyguard and hires Kim Seol-woo (Park Hae-jin), a man trained in special investigations and a mysterious man of many talents. In reality, Seol-woo is a NIS black ops agent who has his own agenda and the role of bodyguard is only a cover to achieve his goals. The drama is about the twisty events they encounter and the budding bromance between the star and bodyguard. In addition, Seol-woo gets romantically involved with Cha Do-ha (Kim Min-jung), the manager of Woon-gwang.

Cast
Park Hae-jin as Kim Seol-woo
Park Sung-woong as Yeo Woon-gwang
Kim Min-jung as Cha Do-ha
Chae Jung-an as Song Mi-eun
Yeon Jung-hoon as Mo Seung-jae

First impressions – episodes 1-2
The drama didn’t waste any time introducing our lead character, Kim Sul-woo, to us and how bad ass he is. The only drama I have previously watch of Park Hae Jin is the variety show Family Outing, where he was the timid and shy cast. So, i’m quite impressed with his character as he is smart, capable, and gets the job done. For so many years he has worked as an international spy and this is the first time he will work on a mission in South Korea. He is supposed to act like a bodyguard while trying to find the wood carvings.

Enter Park Sung Woong’s character, the popular villain character actor and all around ass, Yeo Woon-gwang. The last movie I saw of him was where he played a bad guy (i can’t remember the movie though) so it’s refreshing to see him play a funny character. He doesn’t really need a bodyguard, but had to accept Sul-woo as he’s a “gift” from his stockholder. He is portrayed as an actor who is always late and treats others like crap but is a great actor.

Then next we meet Kim Min Jung, as Woon gwang’s manager and biggest fan, who always has a huge crush on him. I dont really like her since (sorry) but I dont find her pretty, her hair looks awful and she looks older than Haejin. Plus, her character is such a pain in the ass. I dont find her endearing and i have no idea how Sul-woo will ever find her pretty. She always jump into conclusions, treats Woo Gwang as if he is hers (that scene where she use a tractor to almost kill Woo gwang and a girl just because she is jealous).

Another female character is  Song Mi-eun, who is Woo Gwang’s ex girlfriend and who dumped him (he finds out on tv when she announces she is marrying someone else while he just came from a big car accident and is alone in the hospital – where he eventually meets Do Ha) and is now the company who is funding his next Hollywood film. Sul-woo’s handler was able to convince Mi-eun to make Sul-woo as Woo Gwang’s bodyguard because she owes him a favor (not sure what their connection is yet).

Finally, last important character is Mi-eun’s husband, Mo Seung-jae. This actor is so far excellently portraying his character quite well. His dimples and beautiful smile is so cute and he is so sweet to his son. But then his eyes go dark and his words mean when he tells his minions to “fix” Woo Gwang (I think he caused Woo Gwang’s accident in the first place and tried to kill him again by damaging his car while shooting) or when he goes into crazy deals with the other political men – he is looking for wood carvings which supposedly contains his grandfather’s corruption list or something.

Now you see the connection? Sul-woo is trying to find the wood carvings which might lead to Seung-jae while Sung Woong most probably dislike Seung Jae for stealing Mi-eun from him.

What did i like so far?

  • the bromance between Sul-woo and Woo gwang. they are the perfect pair! Sul-woo’s chill and smart attitude can totally handle Woo gwang’s brattiness and keep him in toes. Best scenes so far are the bridge scene when they were running (that look that Woo gwang gives Sul-woo is like he has fallen in love) plus the train scene where Woo gwang became the trending topic for the day. I love how Woo gwang is taking care of his bodyguard. Plus that chicken scene in the alley where Sul-woo was also tempted to let Woo gwang take a bit of the chicken. Oh and how can i forget the fake bomb bed scene? haha. I am looking forward to the time when Woo gwang totally trusts Sul-woo and they will work together to take down Seung Jae.

What did I not like so far?

  • definitely trying to put Do Ha and Sul-woo together. On  one hand, it makes sense since she is the manager and he is the bodyguard and the cat-and-dog-fight may seem adorable but their personalities are totally different and she is annoying. I dont feel the chemistry between the 2 characters as I feel like Do Ha is not so smart. On the other hand, she has a lot of fire and emotions, which might be just what Sul-woo needs to brighten up his life. I do wonder though how they can be together since he will have to leave as soon as the mission is over and i dont think he can ever tell her what his job is. He may even have to “kill” himself.

Should you watch? Yes! the first episode served as an introduction of all the characters and setting up the storyline of Sul woo becoming Woo gwang’s bodyguard. the second episode had a lot of funny scenes (which I didn’t expect since i thought this will be a straight action and drama) and showing the budding bromance between Woo gwang and Sul woo.

Be wary of: I didn’t like the two female characters. one is a crazy fan-turned-manager who would rather run off the bodyguard then use him to save Woo gwang’s life. One married for money and we are not sure why she is funding he ex boyfriend’s film using her husband’s money (it’s a recipe for disaster! she is endangering Woo gwang and adding more salt to the wound).

 

Bride of the Water God: Episode 04

habaek4-01102

Just when we thought that he had his powers back… apparently, we are wrong. For some reason he still cannot use his powers on this episode. I think it has something to do either with So-ah or with the conspiracy made by Moo Ra and Bi-Ryum. I am leaning towards to So-Ah as her wound was focused during the scene where she fell off the roof top.

habaek4-00471.jpg

Finally our helpless God has found a new home thanks to So-Ah. Well, not the type of house he was expecting but I think we will be seeing more antics at this house.

habaek4-00752.jpg

For some reason I am suspecting CEO Hu-Ye as the other God as can be visibly  seen on his poor effort to pull out humor. Also there’s something about his personality that makes him the other God Habaek needs to find.

habaek4-01057.jpg

We get to glimpse Habaek who offered his services to Moo Ra by reporting negative comments towards her on the internet and acting as a body guard for a fan meet. It sucks that he got screwed by not giving the God Stones to him as Moo Ra doesn’t trust him as she knows that he lost his powers.

 

We didn’t get to know more about Bi-Ryum. He is just the God who is handing out advices to Moo Ra. Is Bi-Ryum showing his love interest towards Moo Ra? Or he is just an accomplice that has a common goal with her? I guess we will have to find out in the upcoming episode.

habaek4-01139.jpg

Finally the last scene was kinda sweet as So-Ah and Habaek travelled to a peaceful seaside. For some reason Habaek is apologizing to So-Ah. I guess a love confession is about to happen.

the_bride_of_the_water_god_145_1.jpg

PS – I saw the scanlations of the original story. Will try to read it one at time so I can check the differences from the current Kdrama series.

Bride of the Water God: Episode 03

vlcsnap-2017-07-11-18h15m45s68

On this episode we get to know more on our helpless doctor. How she struggles with her debt and we get to know about her past especially with his father.

habaek3-00641

So-ah’s hate towards her father makes an interesting backstory, and the reason why her character is like that because her father abandoned her and her mom a long time ago. Her dad may have his reasons for leaving but I think it we will get to see why in the future. She was also affected when her father was mentioned during her confrontation with Jaya.

habaek3-00947

We also get to see the other Gods in Moo Ra (portrayed by Krystal) disguised as an actress named Hye Ra (She nailed it with her resting bitch face when she got pissed when she saw Habaek holding So-Ah’s wrist after the fight with the security team.) It is very clear that Moo Ra got jealous of it as you can really see it on her face and the reason why she slapped Habaek really hard.

habaek3-01149

The other god is Bi-Ryum (portrayed by Gong Myung) who was in Shanghai when Moo Ra called. One thing for sure is that they are both accomplices on the whereabouts of the God Stones.

And finally Habaek’s power is back as he was able to use it when he saved So-ah’s life when she was pushed over the roof deck. I personally like to have his powers gone for a little while as it brings comic relief to the series. I guess we have to wait again tomorrow for episode 4. This series is getting interesting!

My only love song eps 17-20 (end)

I didnt like the ending!!!!!

Sorry had to get it out if the way. It wasnt bad but it left a lot of questions. And it felt so abrupt. He was walking then suddenly he was there with soo jeong in seoul. The entire show we were shown that boong boong somehow controlled the story and how they transported from one place to another so the ending didnt make sense! And i wanted an epilogue. I love On dal’s reactions everytime he saw a modern gadget  can you imagine what would happen to him when he realizes he is in seoul? He would probably pee in his pants lol!! But i guess thats not the main point of the story.

What i did like was moo myung becoking on dal. I didnt expect that so i thought that was a creative way of making sure pyeong gang still ends up with on dal. And moo myung can finally speak!! I would have liked them to travel with on dal to the future but i guess they are better suited in that period.

And sam yong and gwangnyeon haha. So funny how he meets different people with the same face and he falls in love every single time.

As for il yong it is a bit extreme for a guy who seems so soft and effeminate when he speaks and acts but is very brutal and cunning. I defintely wasnt sad when he died. He deserved it not because he was an ass but because he was committing treason.

I didnt really like the king but i liked the director! Wonder how he knew samyong and soo jeong were time traveling. And so sweet of him to wait for them for months.

As for the our lead soo jeong i liked her spunk and bravery. She may have been depicted as as rude and bratty at the start but im glad she toned it down a bit in the latter parts. And she matured. Instead of just thinking if herself she started to care for samyong for on dal and for her friends.

Overall this drama had a lot of flaws but it also had a lot of charm that makes you want to watch til the end. Plus its onky less than 30 mins per episode so its a quick watch. You might get annoyed with the replays and fillers but you can just fast forward them if you dont want to relive the previous scenes.
