Nam Joo Hyuk Addresses Similarities Between His Water God Character And Gong Yoo’s Goblin
On June 27, the main cast and director of tvN’s “Bride of the Water God” attended the press conference ahead of the drama’s premiere on July 3.
At the press conference, actor Nam Joo Hyuk talked about his role as the water god Ha Baek and, when asked if he felt any burden about the character he has taken on, he responded, “The charm of the story outweighed any burden. The narrative is really fun.”
One reporter asked for his thoughts on the speech similarities between his character and Gong Yoo’s character from the hit tvN drama “Goblin,” to which he said, “It isn’t something that I thought of beforehand. When reading the script, that way of speaking just naturally came out.”
“Bride of the Water God” is a fantasy romance about water god Ha Baek, who descends to earth to meet his human bride. Yoon So Ah, played by actress Shin Se Kyung, is a very pragmatic doctor whose family has been destined to serve the water god for generations, which is how she becomes the bride of the water god. “Bride of the Water God” is a modern adaptation of a popular Korean manhwa of the same title.
