The Bride of the Water God  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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.

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.

The initial volumes were immensely interesting to read due to the amazing art. But this manhwa has really gone downhill. It's dragged on for too long and the stupidity of the characters make me want to blow buildings up (seriously, it's like being in Korean drama hell). Unless the author pulls off a spectacular ending somehow, the ratings are only going to get lower.

There are just too many characters in this series! All possessing a certain roles, too many main characters I should say. A little confusing. D: But so far, the storyline is still good.

The author has such beautiful skill in artistry and the initial idea is interesting as is the world she has created; the problem as aforementioned in previous reviews is in the characterisation and plot. It's overly convoluted to the point that everyone has some sort of scheme or dark past no one is truthful which makes it incredibly difficult to like anyone because you never get to truly know anyone. That and the plot at times is so difficult to understand (I commend the scanlators for trying their best to give us the story) it nearly makes no sense at all. The heroine is truly bland, a beautifully crafted heroine but that's all that there is to her. The rest are all pretty clichéd with Machiavellian elements thrown in, they read like an overcooked kmelodrama (and I've seen my fair share). Its a great shame because it is just so beautiful to look at but with all its complications it becomes a bore and a chore to read.

Like all the others who commented before I just have to say that the art is beautiful, top-notch, and amazing. If you just want to look at pretty pictures then be my guest. I haven't read the latest chapters so I don't know if it started making any sense again. As for me, it came to the point, that I was no longer even bothering to read the dialogue and just going from page to page, looking at the pretty pictures.
