The fact that Soah has yet to figure out that Mui and Habaek are the same person is getting a bit annoying. The way it's drawn out has kinda of squeezed the suspense out of it. Now I just want her to find out so the story can move forward. Good thing Huye and this Emperor guy are so intriguing.

Angst overload, but this is definitely a better volume than the previous ones.

5 stars for the art, and 3 stars for the story. The art is some of the most beautiful I have seen in manhwa or graphic novel. The story is meh, but it has it's moments.

Habaek needs to just tell Soah the truth already, and talk about a meddling mother, geez!

Alors que Mui comprend qu'il aime Soah, il compte lui demander officiellement sa main... alors qu'il la propose en marriage, une autre épouse apparait et crée du chaos dans le Royaume des Eaux... Et c'est là que tu te dis "Communication is KEY !"

This review was originally posted at Pages of Forbidden Love

The plot certainly picks up in this book. Just when we thought that Mui and Soah might finally have reached a certain romantic connection a wrench gets thrown into that new found love. The wrench that gets thrown in is the addition of another bride. This bride seems harmless but Habaek quickly forms a bond with her because he thinks she looks exactly like Nakbin, his first human bride.

Basically the addition of the Nakbin look alike push

This book was written by Mi-Kyung-yun I forgot how many pages there were. This is a korean styled comic called Manhwa. (Manga for the japanese)

Nakbin has returned from the human world. Which means a tidal washing away Soah's love for Mui and Habek, the water god. Soah, stil oblivious to the fact that Habek and Mui are the very same persons just that in the morning he is Habek in the form of a child- but at night he is and adult Mui the adult version of Habek just a different name How long will t

And so ‘Nakbin’ pulls the stereotypical bitch move—turn boy against girl and smirk in the background. Of course there’s a Unicorn Pegasus called Lin and a very complicated love trapezium with Soah and Hu-Ye. Ugh. I swear the characters are all so weak willed and lifeless. I don’t feel anything but utter contempt for this story so far. I get the gist of a conspiracy somewhere in this petri dish of unwarranted jealousy, angst and unrequited INSTAlove, and then it disappears—like WHAT? If you’re go ...more

(I keep reading because I need to know if this gets better. Because how the hell has this amassed a lot of fans if the plot continues this way? If the characters continue to be this uninteresting? If everything remains cliched?)

(But sheesh, can I really hold on for too long? lmao.)

The art is a strange mix of gorgeous flower and architectural details, and then strange inhuman looking figures that look about 7ft tall and have 8in long fingers. The story is not quite together with the art, i cant put my finger on what exactly is missing. I suspect there is not enough character development because the art is everything to this series. Imagine the 'Dark Shadows' soap opera as a manga.

artwork still great. story picked up a bit but I still feel like the author skips a bit of the interaction between characters, that might influence there actions. like I still can't figure out why soah thinks habaek is so sweet. certainly wasn't in any of the panels I read. maybe have to reread it. was probably hurried and focused on just the art.

I thought the abrupt scene changes would smooth out, and things would start developing, but by book four events have become repetitive and the heroine can't tell right from left. She gets more aggravating as the situation stays exactly the same and she can't figure anything out! I am now struggling through, and if things don't change by the next two books, I am OUT.

You can tell that Nakbin woman is evil because she has long bangs. Read the review at Truth Beauty Freedom and Books>>>

I'm still ashamed that Habaek didn't tell Soah that Mui is actually him. And I'm bothered that another human girl has arrived. Soah shouldn't of let Habaek/Mui to save her, because that girl is quite a bother to Habaek's relationship with Soah.

Valamiért ez legalább annyira tetszett, mint az első kötet. 
A Nakbi-legende kezd egyre jobban érdekelni…vajon mi az igazság? 
Ráadásul most már tényleg nem tudom kiben lehet bízni. 
Egyre jobb lesz…kérem szépen a folytatást :)

Gorgeous art (lush, dramatic) as always. The story itself can feel confusing and less substantial than the art (hence the lower rating). But I still really enjoy this manhwa and will keep coming back for more...
