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 different he is from the monster Soah imagined.

Soah is a pain   
Rating: 8.6 / 10.0

I stopped reading this manhwa for years now and had recently picked it up again. Reading it reminded me why I had stopped in the first place. Soah is atypical of a mortal and having her as the protagonist is no different from having Bella from twilight as a main character. However, the side stories and characters made me read on. I found myself skipping Soah/Habaek scenes as they were a drag. The author really knows how to make things tragic and complex albeit long-winded. Plus point to Habaek's parents. Better love story than the main romance plot.

Lost interest

Likewise, i think the art is gorgeous. The beginning of this manhwa is very interesting and romantic as well. The male character is introduced as a cursed person and the female character is introduced as someone with a personality. But then ... somehow 15-30 chapters in the female character loses this personality and she becomes this damsel that doesn't really do anything - making the manhwa boring since she's supposed to be the main character. As you continue on, there's a bunch of names thrown at you and it gets too confusing to follow, especially when there's not much action happening. It made me a bit sad ; the intro had so much potential and the artwork is breathtaking. I suggest you just read the first 15 chapters until you lose interest (or continue on!)

Finally getting better

It's finally been getting better, but it's been dragged out far too long so far. The artwork is impeccable and absolutely fabtastic, but that's taking over the whole theme of this manga. Not the storyline.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a girl gets put into the ocean to be eaten up by the water as a sacrifice to the water god (to become his bride). She surprisingly really does go over to the water gods country. She then meets a little boy as well as a older man. The boy she knows to be her next husband.. The man is a mystery. After many hardships she finally figured out the he is the same person and they go to the main palace to get married. His mother is always trying to kill her. Then the tree of life they have is burned down.. Because of jealousy over the water god. Then the witch of the west?! Ends up trying to kill her for being mortal and cursed the water god to being a mere mortal himself and changes him so that around her he stays a kid. And only when he is not he is fine. They then go to her human world. After having shock that she comes back and with a child she ends up running away to be cared for by a different family because her father still acts as a wicked man.. During this time they insure a woman trying to claim herself as the real wife of the Water god as well as a man trying to take the wife away. The water gods father dies but doesn't die. And the mother is forced into the hands of the main palaces king. The mother tries to kill the wife which leads to her sons near death. He is given the last peach to revive him.. Then the mother tells the wife to promise to leave him. The mother then convinces the witch to release the curse from her son. He becomes himself again and they finally go back home to the water country. They consummate their marriage and the she leaves him. It's now four years later and the gods are at war. The palace king is losing and is trying to get the water god on his side. The palace kings son is protecting the wife and now the daughter! But because he is he was discovered. The water god was sent to the mortal realm to fetch the son... But ended up bumping into his daughter instead.. What's next?? Habaek has now found his daughter and Soah. He also is aware the kid is his and now so does the other gods in some way.

Downhill from chapter 60   
Rating: 2.0 / 10.0

It starts off pretty well. The art is interesting and so are the plot and characters. But I think that the author's mind went blank after 60~ish chapters and the story started to repeat. Let them be happy already and move the plot elsewhere!

In 90~ish chapters, the heroine becomes unbearable. She already started losing her appeal in 30~ish chapters, but 90's made me want to kill her. How nice would everything be if only she died!

Read the manga until you can bear it and then drop it. It's not worth after the initial chapters. And, I almost forgot, for a manga that is about realm of gods, it surprisingly lacks characters. Just a few who are always there and run the story.

Very disappointed.

Ive dropped this. It started off interesting and the art is absolutely gorgeous! But the plot is tired constanly a back and forth of the Soah being indecisive. After 133 chapters Id expect something new but nope same story. Plus the plot is super convulted with a million characters to keep track of. Other than the art theres not much going for this comic at this point.

i read this manhwa since 2011, and at that time, i was really crazy about this manhwa, always looking forward to new release, and so... osmile yeah, the art are gorgeous, strong character. Even it's like typical shoujo manga, i mean "human-god relationship", which it's impossible but always interesting to read. But right now, i dropped!!! I can't understand why this story became very tedious and long-winded. i don't know why the author drag it so much,, look at the couple, the problem more and more complicated and irritates me so much. sometimes the author put the problems (a lot of problems), which is impossible and not important at all, even to think about it. when this story will finish? who knows!! i tired of waiting. _(.----.)_

The art is gorgeous, but the manga NEEDS to end.

The art makes me so jealous of the mangaka's skills... Everything is so elegant!!! omg! Main characters are also enjoyable!

but.... after the first 10 or 20 chapters, the plot just becomes a bowl of mush...... so many side characters appear with hidden intentions that I just ccan't swallow it all down.... Plus, many of them have the same face! WHAT THE HECK?

Overall though, I would recommend people to try the manga out, at least until chapter 25 or so.... and then give up if the story becomes too overwhelming.

Dragging on forever

I loved the art, and it had such great potential in the beginning chapters but holy crap, it's like a never-ending train wreck. The moment one problem is solved, there's another scheme or plot that the protagonist is dragged into.
At times I think about just dropping the story all together, but I love the art too much. I guess I'll wait until this is finished before getting back into it and changing my rating :/

Alright so you start off really enjoying this manga. This plot is intriguing and the artwork is gorgeous. But as you advance farther and farther you sink into this rabbit hole of nonsense plot lines and too many characters to count doing God knows what. Ugh. It really upsets me because the artwork is so good but eventually the story just gets way too bad for it to even be worth reading anymore. I ended up having to drop it. I just wish the author had known when to stop to story....or even where she was going with this story because at this point its just an endless string of pointless misery, odd love triangles, and dumb competition. If ratings went by artwork alone I'd give it a 10 but if you include the story its more like a 4.
