The man at night has told Soah that his name is Mui and he is the Water God's cousin. They are falling in love but neither will admit it to each other or themselves; there is much antagonism between them. Soah is given the opportunity to return home and yet she refuses. She learns of Mui's secret (that he is really the Water God by night) but from an unreliable source and this volume concentrates on her trying to find out the truth. I found the wordless panels quite hard to figure out exactly wh...more

Beautiful art, but the story board is all jumbled up that its hard to follow. Even in English, it seems like I'm reading a different language.

Still, its really pretty to look at. Mui is so hot. So is Habaek, if I was a pedophile. He's just a really cute kid, with a bad disposition.

Recommends it for: lovers of anime
When reading this fascinating book I have come to love Japanese anime. The first time I read this book I was confused there were pictures all over the place and I couldn't keep track of what was happening. I then started to understand the book when I read it over and over again. Once I figured out was happening in the book I began to understand what was occurring in the text. The Bride of the water God, Vol.2 is a book filled with suspense and mystery of the beautiful Soah, a human, who is mar...more

Mon avis : http://www.betweendandr.com/2013/08/0...

J’avais tellement aimé le premier volume de L’Épouse du Dieu de l’eau, au point que je me suis précipitée sur amazon pour commander les trois volumes suivants. J’étais vraiment impatiente de découvrir ce que la manhwaka nous réservait pour la suite.

Dans ce volume on retrouve une Soah toujours aussi perdue. Elle a vraiment du mal à cerner Habaek. Puis elle est intriguée par Mooi, cet homme mystérieux et à la personnalité complexe, qui n’apparaît...more

From the previous volume, Habaek was pressured by the presence of his mother and as Mui, he told her to go back to her world. But Soah said an unexpected thing by lying that Habaek is in love with her and she wouldn’t leave him. This confused Mui who is also Habaek, and began to wonder about his attachment to her. Soah wondered why Mui wanted her to go back and Tae Eul Jin In revealed to her that Habaek and Mui is the same person. Soah remained unconvinced by deathly suspicious with the possibil...more

Not bad. I still like the illustrations, and the outfits are really pretty. Not entirely historical, more like historical inspired I think. I could be wrong, though. Um...

Story wise, it's interesting, I guess. It's not bad, but it's not one where you feel like you HAVE to find out what will happen next, or anything. Seems more lazily-paced to me. We're still mostly in the dark about Habaek's past, and where the story is even supposed to be going. I think for me, it's another 2nd priority read -...more

If I enjoyed Mi-Kyung Yun's Bride of the Water God Vol 1 as an appetizer, then Vol 2 is the second course that will keep me at the table.

Artwork continues to be the greatest selling point. Yun's characters are long and beautiful and elegant. The backgrounds are exquisite. The clothes are luxurious. So the eye candy satisfy.

Plot begins to rev up as well. Soah is confronted by Mui who tells her to go home and she tells him No because Habaek loves her. Her reasons are both silly and funny and poign...more

I’m happy to say that this volume is much more clear and easy to understand than the first volume was. In the first volume, it was all about the art being beautiful but in this volume the story actually moves forward. Not only does the story progress nicely but the word bubbles that the characters are saying and thinking are much easier to understand. Things were confusing in the first volume but this one actually makes sense, I could...more

The story panel isn't as bad as the first volume, but it's still a bit hard to follow. The story itself is still stuck in the "gimmick" phase, where I feel like nothing truly original is coming out. Just stuff you could find in any other shoujo story.

Now this is the point where I'm assuming everyone has at least read the first volume! So the water god has two forms a child and a man. Yeah, that's not really my cup of tea. Especially since there's the potential for Soah to not realize this for m...more

The art continues to be absolutely gorgeous. With four beautiful full-color pages at the beginning, lovely full-page (splash page?) fantasy scenes, and wonderful art throughout, this book is an aesthetic feast.

Unfortunately, the events continue to be very hard to follow. The story isn't particularly confusing: a human girl is married to the water g-d Habaek, and she's trying to figure out: a) if the little boy Habaek that she knows during the day is the same person as the adult "Mui" that she e...more

Good story, kinda males me relate to Soah sometimes. like the story. a lot of suspense.
Mely
I will probably continue reading this as long as the art continues to be so unbelievably gorgeous, but I found myself irritated by some of the romance tropes, particularly the way every other woman who appears is in some way antagonistic to the heroine. Also, some of the action/flashback sequences were extremely confusing; I had to read them twice to make sure they weren't misprinted in the wrong order.

the mysterious water god Habaek has been having problems. during the day Habaek has to live in the form of a little boy. but at night Habaek turns to an adult. his new human bride Soah thinks she'd married a child and doesn't know that Mui is Habaek. Saoh is tempted from both Mui and rascal Huye. she has to be careful so she won't anger the gods also her powerful and unpredictable husband Habaek
Christine
I would have rated this 5 stars if only the storyline wasn't so confusing. It keeps jumping from past to present, present to past.etc. Other than that, the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and detailed. I've never read such a beautiful manhwa/manga.
Athena
This is a great Manga serieswith beautiful artwork and an interesting sweet story. For those who like art, romance, and a little bit of fantasy I'd say this is a good series so far. No matter how many times I read it it never gets old.
Emily
Unlike the first volume, this one is mostly filled with drama. As each chapter arises, mysteries of the past kept on unfolding. I assure you, you'll enjoy this as much as you've enjoyed the first volume.

These characters are really emaciated. Read the review at Truth Beauty Freedom and Books>>>
Anastasia
Habaek/Mui is a the hottest
guy/god/husband in manhwa history!
Soah you lucky thing!
And the art is..........W O W!!!
I could spend hours just looking at
the details of each page.
ΤΕΛΕΙΟ!
Amy
Beautiful, amazing art! We're seeing Soah get more and more involved in Haebek's, or Mui's, night-time life. I'm not really going to write a review until the end of the last volume.
Susan
The art is beautiful, but the storytelling could use some work. Some panels are just a mess, and it doesn't flow very well. And I hate reading volumes that end on a cliffhanger.
Sesana
I think this series just isn't for me. The art is still very pretty, but I don't care about the romance or any of the characters. Just not interested.

If this story is what really happens to the girls that are sacrificed........... Then I don't mind getting sacrificed....................
Lindsey
For some reason I had a hard time following the plot of volume 2. The gorgeous artwork made up for it though.
Beanie
The plot thickens but I won't say much more than that because I don't want to give anything away.
