When 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 bring the weather change they need to survive.
THE ART!! WOW!! It is truly breathtaking! It's better with color but the black and white are still gorgeous... It hearkens back to an older art style when manga first became popular and were still incredibly detailed. This is a manhwa and they like this style a lot. The problem with the style and why manga became more streamlined is because it's not always clear what is happening in a frame. When you feel befuddled about what is going on you start to come out of the story and get more and more frustrated. I had a hard time keeping track of who was who. Their names aren't used a lot so it makes you feel lost. The look of the characters is compelling and I know the men are different just not who they are! Soah's face is rather expressive and really helped keep me grounded in the art.
The plot is COMPELLING! I love this kind of old-fashioned story and adding in gods and goddesses and all that power play between them is quite compelling. We meet a BIG player here in the first volume as well as the gods that surround Habaek. I liked the twists surrounding Habaek and that seems to be the central plot point besides meeting the other characters and getting some details about the world. Nothing is really explained!! It makes it feel like a rather formless plot. As there seems to be little reason as we flit from scene to scene and there are few transitions as we abruptly pass between interactions. Combined with the uncertain art it can be quite confusing! In a first volume you aren't going to learn much, its all about being intrigued and that I AM!
It's hard to tell where these even are! It doesn't say a chapter number like in manga so you just flow from page to page, there is no break. I searched out a couple and they are compelling endings but they are about adding to your questions at this point not revealing anything. I'm sucked into the story but it's a rather formless feeling like exploring something new and not having near enough answers.
Soah - The bride of the Water God. I really like her. She is rather passive compared to modern girls but hey that is how it was back then. Women had little power and anyone who'd allow themselves to be sacrificed to the Water God is not big on rebelling. This may irritate some readers. I'm more compelled by the fact that she wants to get along and live in the water kingdom!
Habaek - The Water God. Talk about a random little sneak! I feel like he has A LOT of history and we don't know but the minutest of things. TONS of it is hinted at in this volume and i'd say most of the plot will be coming from his back history. I wish I understood at least one of his motivations so that I had something to root for or hold onto about him. At this point he seems random even though I know he's not.
Together they have chemistry and I am rooting for them to fall in love even though there hasn't really been enough to say that I think they are starting to yet... I feel like Soah just met the real Habaek! So I'm still out on whether to ship this couple of not!
This is a MASSIVE number of characters to meet in the first volume! I went back and took a picture of everyone in the volume to become familiar with them and I realized each was quite compelling and added real depth to the first bit of story but it was A LOT to grasp... You don't really know the purpose of everyone yet but you are starting to get a sense of their natures. My favorite at this point is Tae-eul-jin-in because he loves to push Habaek's buttons... There is an obvious bromance between Habaek and Hu-ye but also some history too... I'm probably most intrigued by these two besides our lead couple!
Hu-ye - The commander of the Water Kingdom.
Mura - The Witch of Chung Yo Mountains in love with Habaek.
Ju-dong - The God of Fire.
Yo-hee - A goddess who is fond of Soah.
Tae-eul-jin-in - A doctor and inventor in the Water Kingdom.
Suh-wang-mo, Yanghee - The Queen Mother of the West and the Goddess of Death, she is Habaek's mother.
Yook-oh - A grandfatherly butler who serves the Water God.
Banwing - A masked messenger who serves the Emperor.
Overall, I was quite compelled by this volume and I am looking forward to the next couple that I have picked up... I an already starting to see the connections to the K-drama having read this volume (and learning the names of each character!!) I do want a better delineated plot and better reveals at the end of chapters.
BOTTOM LINE: A gorgeous manhwa that looks to be very political and romantic.
