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

As the second volume of a manhwa it's hard to grade. Basically I feel for this volume what I felt about the first. See my review of volume one...

The art is gorgeous! Sometimes confusing... I did understand some of the frames that were unclear but is that me reading better or the drawing being better...?

The plot is compelling... in this volume Soah learns about Habaek's past being in love with Nakbin is introduced and thro

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?

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
Is this historical romance and only I didn't get the memo?

There's always a scene where the main character would give an antidote via mouth to mouth. As I get older, it seems so juvenile and not plausible. Plus, ingested drug is the slowest way for you to be cured.

I guess the most interesting thing about this would still be the age regression of the Haebak's body every morning. I wonder who cursed him...

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.

Not much happens as Soah ignores all evidence that she is married to a divine version of Jekyll and Hyde, but Oh My things get steamy!

Alright, I am definitely getting sucked into this series. I think I may have a crush on Mui.....
So, I know I was a bit harsh on the first volume, complaining about quite a few stuff, but let me say this, I think most of my problems are fixed here. And it's not because the translation got better or anything, it's because the story got what it needed the most: Focus.
To be honest, I am kinda ashamed that I could not pinpoint this issue when reviewing the first volume (I will nore retroacively correct that though). It tried to get every card on the table, so of course the flow was a bit broken

Transitions of scenes are still quite confusing but I am getting the hang of it, plus there are some inconsistencies I have to point out. In Vol. 1 Mooee introduced himself as the cousin of Habaek, but in this volume, Soah referred Mooee as the older brother of Habaek. Which is it really? Then there was a scene wherein Habaek is in a child's form and Soah called him Mooee and he responded with that name, Soah could have figured that out that they are one person, or was it a typo? I also noticed ...more

A bit angsty, and the plot was still all over the place.

I really like that this manga has more of a fantasy world feel than the K-Drama adaption. It had enough mystery, drama, and humor to make me enjoy it. Oh, and the romance. <3 Read it in one day, and look forward to the next volume.

Les interactions entre Mui et Soah, je les adore ! <3 le chapitre au marché de la nuit est mon préféré ! :D et Huye... the creeper... Il sait que Soah est la femme d'Habaek mais il continue à les provoquer, c'est fou !

This volume had just what I wanted, the story line sucks you in and you cant look away from the detailed pages. I got a little mixed up on some of the side characters but Im dying to have the time to read the next manga.

Beautiful artwork but the story line didn’t keep me as engaged as the first. Nevertheless moving on to number 3. Gotta see how this plays out

starting to go somewhere but no real big progress but introductions are over and now we're getting to know personalities of the gods and more in-depth of the world.

The art style and the storytelling gives it such a mystical feeling that I just love. I just rejoice in the nostalgia and warmth this story brings to me

Pretty art cannot save a story built on misunderstandings solely used as a plot device to further a terrible romance. This is not my kind of story and I won't be continuing this.

So beautifully done. This volume was a bit confusing but Soah is confused too so I guess it makes sense! I can't wait to read more.

Beautiful art but the story doesn't really seem to be going anywhere. I hate all of this "if only he/she knew but he/she will never tell" stuff.

Manga olarak internetten okuduğum "The Bride Of The Water God" 124 chapter olarak girilmiş fakat kitap olarak aldığınızda goodreads de 24 kitaba denk geliyor ve sanırım 2.cildini bitirmiş sayılırım çünkü her cilt 5 chapter'a denk geliyor ve 11.chapter'a geldim 😊✌
Keyifli bir manga üstelik dizisi de başlamış. Henüz 12 bölümü yayınlanmış biraz farklı işleniyor manga ile ama yine de çok sıkıcı değil.

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
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 -
