This week’s episodes of Bride of the Water God really moved the storyline forward. We finally get a glimpse of Krystal as Water Goddess Moo-ra and Gong Myung as Wind God Bi-ryum and Habaek finally convinces So-ah that he is indeed a God! Or does he?
Krystal’s Water Goddess Moo-ra is finally revealed towards the end of episode 3, she’s a famous actress and a spokesmodel for Hoo-ye’s hotel (the dude So-ah is continuously and coincidentally bumping into 😂). Moo-ra is aloof and distant, she is mostly silent while her staff fuss over her and delicately apply her makeup. It’s clear after a while that Moo-ra is going to prove to be troublesome for Habaek and So-ah as she is refusing to give up her “Divine Stone” and seems to have a resentment towards So-ah for currently unknown reasons (however it was said that she doesn’t like human women, but I think there’s more to it than that). So far from what we’ve seen of Moo-ra I think she’ll be a rather interesting character in the show as she has moments of authority and coldness and then becomes rather girlish and superficial in others. One rather amusing moment that highlighted her superficiality was the moment Habaek asked what she wanted in exchange for her stone, Moo-ra replied that he has to report all her negative comments online and be one of her bodyguards (which is an absolute disaster!😂).
So-ah’s profession as a psychiatrist clearly influences what she believes in the world and as soon as Habaek came into her life she has assumed that he is mentally ill, that she herself is going crazy and having delusions rather than seeing and hearing the truth. It’s not until the final moments of episode 3 (such an epic moment) when So-ah is pushed off of the top of a skyscraper (by an unknown and very suspicious assailant) and Habaek smashes (but no really smashes) through a window of the building as if he swam through the glass and dives down, encircles her in water and lands on the ground with her in his arms. It was literally, hands down one of the most impressive and swoon-worthy rescues, forget Superman it’s all about Habaek the Water God.
In conclusion, episodes 3 and 4 submerged us more into the world of Bride of the Water God, we met some new characters and we got to know a little more about So-ah and her tough background. Habaek navigating the human realm is still hilarious, he is a weird character, for example, he’s stubborn, bossy and rude to So-ah (calling her his servant constantly) but, at times he is so clueless and innocent rather like a lost little puppy that you can’t help but like him. Hopefully, we’ll see Habaek get his powers restored soon because I really want to see what sort of badass stuff he can do and, because of the masked guy that keeps appearing he kind of needs to get his powers back so that he can protect So-ah!
