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. * Mi-Kyung Yun received the "Best New Artist" award in 2004 from the esteemed Dokja-manhwa-daesang organization. * Bride of the Water God is translated by Heejeong Haas, who has translated a wide variety of American and Korean projects. Heejeong worked as the lead translator for Toon-Us-In-where she translated animation storyboards for The Simpsons and Futurama.

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...
Much, much better than I expected. Very original and I actually liked the Korean art in this one.
