    1. Check out more manga and graphic novel reviews @ Perspective of a WriterWhen Soah’s desperate village sacrifices her to the Water God Habaek to end a long drought, they believe she will bring much-needed rain. Not only is she rescued by the Water God, she’s a welcomed guest in his magical kingdom!I totally picked this up because there is a K-drama of this manhwa running right now!! It is set in modern times while this is set in historical times when they believed sacrificing a person could b [...]

    2. The setting is interesting. Soah is given/sacrificed to the water god Habaek as his bride, in hopes of getting rain. She finds herself in a city of gods or supernatural beings, maybe under the water, it isn't clear, married to a small boy who mostly ignores her. But not much happens plotwise and the characters are pretty flat. On a similar note, the art has very pretty decorative motifs and nice backgrounds, but the drawing f the people is not very pleasing to be. They are all pointy and attenua [...]

    3. This is in NO way a bad book. Perhaps it gets stronger as the series continues, but for a first foray into this world of gods and goddesses, myth and romance, I was utterly lost.Soah is sacrificed to the Water God Habaek by her village in exchange for rain. She accepts her fate because what can she do? Welp, apparently it was all true because she's not dead and is now married to her husband-a child, really. Who grows into this sexy ass man at night-but she doesn't know that right now.The art is [...]

    4. I'm a dedicated fan of Japanese manga, but even I have to admit the Koreans take the cake for beautiful graphic art. I always think that since the stories of manga/manhwa are static the drawing style is very important. This manhwa is delicately drawn and absolutely gorgeous. There is a certain openness to it, countered by the grand and detailed costumes and characters (they are divine after all). It's a good thing that this manwah has a quietness. It's full of pregnant pauses, giving the reader [...]

    5. The art was beautiful, but everything about the story and characters was unremarkable. Even though I read it, if anyone asked me what it was about, I wouldn't be able to tell them much more than what the title already proclaims: "It's about a girl who marries the water god."Soah is a dull character with very little personality. She's pretty and she can get lost anywhere, but there's not much else to her. She shows a hint of emotion when she yells at Habaek about having not given the village rain [...]

    6. I can't get through volume 5. I've been trying all night, but I'm just not into the story. I'll post a review for vols 1-4 in a bit.2/19/15 - At the end of volume 4, the author says a reader wrote her a letter saying that the epilogue was more interesting than the actual story. Yes, precious reader. This series is just not well written so far and the story is incoherent and boring. I have the next 3 volumes so I'll read them, but if the story hasn't picked up by then I'll be marking this DNF and [...]

    7. The drawings in this Manwha (Korean Manga) story are just so lovely and detailed. The story of a God who is a child during the day and an adult at night is an interesting plot line. The problem I had was that at times the characters seemed very interchangeable. In that I had a hard time distinguishing them. Still and all, it was interesting enough for me to want to read the next book in the series.

    8. The story is interesting so far, a lot of mystery and if it were a movie it would be a 'silent' film, in the sense that there is a sort of quietness and ethereal quality to it. The cinematography would be amazing because the artwork is just stunning.Reminds me a bit of Psyche and Cupid, which is one of my absolute favorite myths.

    9. While I am only giving this manhwa 2 stars, I will be continuing on to see if the story improves. The artwork in this is absolutely stunning and if I was rating on artwork alone it would 5 stars. The concept is good - a young girl is sacrificed to be the bride of a water god by her drought-stricken village. The problem with this was the execution. The story is all over the place with barely any plot or conflict. The characters are stock standard and dialogue awkward. This is a debut by Mi-Kyung [...]

    10. This is a review for the whole manhwa, or up to whichever point I abandoned it.It began well enough: a girl named Soah was sacrificed to become the bride of the Water God in order that rain would fall again on the village, and the Water God turned out to be a little sulky boy. It is a romantic comedy with the usual formula of the hero and heroine quarreling with each other, then slowly growing closer, and finally falling deeply in love. But as more characters are introduced and the story progres [...]

    11. Synopsis:"When Soah’s impoverished, desperate village decides to sacrifice her to the Water God Habaek to end a long drought, they believe that drowning one beautiful girl will save their entire community and bring much-needed rain. Not only is Soah surprised to be rescued by the Water God — instead of killed — she never imagined she’d be a welcomed guest in Habaek’s magical kingdom, where an exciting new life awaits her! Most surprising, however, is the Water God himself and how very [...]

    12. This may be my 4th time reading this. I own it and I have to re-read it whenever a new volume is released.Bride of the Water God is an unique love story (in my humble opinion) between a human girl and a water god. It takes place in a land where gods live, as well as random other beautiful and dangerous creatures. The heroine was sacrificed to the water god, Habaek, in hopes of rain. She discovers a pint size water god as her husband and his full-grown good-looking and mysterious "cousin" Mui. As [...]

    13. Mmmm, not really for me.It sounded interesting. A girl is sacrificed to the water god so he will bring rain to the village. She finds the water god to be a good guy and presumably, they have some adventures.There wasn't much of a drowning death scene. Not sure she even drowned. She's on a boat, it capsizes, she swims to shore and it's the home of the water god and various other gods. They don't take much of an interest in her. Reading the back of the book, it seems her relationship with the gods [...]

    14. I watched the Korean Drama based off of this manhwa, so I was excited to find the library had a copy of this so I could read it, too. It is not much like the drama, but still enjoyable. I hope to continue with the next book in the series.

    15. Ah what to say? It started as a pleasant mess. The art had it charms, full of ornaments and fluffiness. It's also sophisticated and detailed. The costumes especially are exquisite. The landscape is vibrant and beautiful. 'Effulgent' is the pompous word that comes to my mind when I recall some scenes. However the art is not without flaws as the characters all look alike ( Soah/random female, Habaek/Mui/Firegod, or Commander/doctor). They also have a doll touch to them. The art feels a bit static [...]

    16. Well, this thing is gorgeous. Even if the story were total crap, I'd still read it, engrossed in the pictures.It is much like the other manhwa I have listed, Goong. In fact, the plot is damn near identical. Girl-in-forced-marriage-thrown-into-a-palace-with-lots-of-goings-on-behind-the-scenes. All of these people have really great hair.Despite problems with the story, it's definitely got its ups. Soah is easy to feel for. She's forced into her situation, she's all alone in a potentially dangerous [...]

    17. This book caught my eye first with the title, and then when I pulled it out, I was drawn in by the beautiful art. I've been hoping to read it for a while, and finally I have--I bought it, even. I love the story's premise. The characters are well-designed and interesting. The art is fantastic; the buildings and clothing are intricately detailed, the characters are usually easy to tell apart, and the book in general just looks appealing. It has some cute humor to break up the otherwise serious (re [...]

    18. This is so, so pretty. The art is often breathtaking, with long stretches of silent panels that do more to set the mood than anything else. The story I'm reserving judgement on. It seems rather slow and hazy, almost dream-like. That may be intentional, since it is set amongst the gods. The character of Soah has rather more backbone than I'd been expecting, and I do find myself interested in her. But the current state of the romance is leaving me cold, and I honestly care about the story far less [...]

    20. Read this so I could determine a rating and sorta check for content. It's got really nice artwork and the story is interesting, if rather slow-moving.

    21. in the over all, i liked it, but not really in to it! the drawing are cool. I like it when a manga is very deep, and i didn't find that it is the case in this one, but i will read the rest of it, since i enjoyed the story line <3

    22. It was a nice read, liked the concept of the story. But the illustration can confusing and all over the place to read at times

    23. *Finished the whole seriesIt started out great but later turned repetitive and boring. The goodlooking gods in this manhwa are not enough to give this one a 4 stars. 😂Mostly because i am very disappointed after it showed so much promise.

    25. Review originally posted at mycutebookshelf/2012/0This manhwa is a treat to the eyes. Just look at that cover. Don't you hate it when the cover art is incredibly beautiful and richly detailed and then you open the volume to find lackluster art that is a mere shadow of that cover that first drew you in? Well, that won't happen with Bride of the Water God. Page after page, this volume gives the reader some of the most gorgeous, detailed and breathtaking art I've seen in a shoujo manga, and its jus [...]

    26. I was in the mood for manga so I picked that at random, but the first volume left me a bit confused.Let's see if the second one clears things up

    27. The set-up is pretty intriguing but poorly executed, mainly because the plot is very confusing and seems to overwhelm the storytelling efforts of the author. (Plus I'm not sure if I remembered right, but um, did the villagers offer the bride because they were experiencing a drought? I don't even get how they managed to dump her into a rushing river when they were experiencing a supposed drought?) The characters feel very flat as well. I feel like the psyche of the characters are not drawn out ve [...]

    28. Bride of the Water God is a spin on an old Korean superstition with beautiful art. The drawings and the coloured pages were stunning. The fine detail of the folds in the various traditional clothing and the intricacy of flowers, trees blew me away.Exhibit A:Forget the first coloured pages of the manhwa, just look at the bloody front cover:And this is how our story goes. Soah lives in a village ravaged with drought. After several decades without rain many of the villagers come to the conclusion o [...]

    29. If yall thought I was unqualified to review books, you won't believe how unqualified to review manhwa I am. Aside from the graphic novel adaptations of Stephen King's Dark Tower series, this is the first anything else of that genre I've ever picked up. My review should probably go like, "it was pretty and I was confused but it was good the end."Mi-Kyung Yun puts these comical little versions of characters in small panels sometimes. For the majority of the volume I thought these were different ch [...]
