Even lamer than the first volume; at least that had some stage-setting going on. Nothing happens in this one, it's just Soah and Mui wandering around continuing their ridiculously needless bodice-ripper-style "misunderstanding" and being angsty about nothing. (Well, Soah has some grounds for angst since she is in a strange place with a strange useless husband and everyone but her has supernatural powers. But she isn't angsting over that; she's angsting about boys.)

Seriously, this misunderstandin

Hmm. I can't tell who's who, keep confusing names and the art is overtaking the plot again. Every character is so secretive, if i hadn't wiki-ied his, i wouldn't even know what's going on in the background. Does anyone know a written novel version of this type of a story?

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

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.

I'm in the same boat with other reviewers, wondering what's happening in this volume. The storyboard is poorly ordered, with flashbacks awkwardly thrown in and too little space given to the more emotional moments. However, I feel as if the problem isn't that too little is happening with the plot. I think we're getting hit with a rain shower, too many insubstantial droplets of information. That's my poetic way of saying that the other is withholding too much about the main characters while trying ...more

I am an avid manga (Japanese) and manhwa (Korean) reader. I'm also a huge fan of Korean dramas. So, I am very fond of dramatic over-the-top romance with a touch of comedy. I love brooding ridiculously handsome male leads and gorgeous frustratingly naive leading ladies. Goofy side characters and jealous antagonists are basically life.

The art in this manhwa is gorgeous. Mi Kyung is clearly gifted.


I know this is only volume 2, but geez! I'm n

In the previous volume, Soah married the water god Habaek. Now, she must learn to live with him. She still feels uneasy about her new husband and the other gods, especially when Mui outrageously flirts with her. When Soah hears that Habaek and Mui are the same person, she seeks a way to discover if this is true.

Nothing much happens in this second volume of the series, but wow, that artwork is just spectacular! I just wish the story could give me a reason to continue with the series, but unfortun

Mon avis :

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

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 -

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

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

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
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

The art work is still amazing. At time I lose the path of the dialog because there may be multiple speech circles in a frame, but some belong to a character out of frame which you don't realize at first. I'm finding it frustrating. Especially as new characters keep getting tossed in and you lose track of who is who. I hope this crazy, dark love story picks up in the next volume.

A rajzolása továbbra is gyönyörű, imádtam azokat, amik két oldalt is kitettek *-*
Az a bizonyos fonal egyre jobban összekuszálódik. Az egyik vége Szoa ujján, de vajon a másik…?
A végét illetően van tippem, de megyek olvasni a folytatást, hogy igazam lett-e. :)

I liked this better than the first one. I felt as though there was more going on between Mooeh ad Soah. However, there is still not much going on in this manhwas as other manhwas. I hope the plot picks up soon.

There is a lot of plot development in this volume. Soah plots to uncover the truth about Mui and Habaek in totally ridiculous ways. As before, the art is stunning.
Still love the artwork, hence the three stars, but the story just flopped for me. Probably won't be continuing this series.
