After Duel I eagerly turned my attention to Bride of the Water God but sadly it has not charmed me in the least. I watched the first episode and felt that things were slightly “off” but tuned in to the next episode to see if it improved – sad to say that it really hasn’t – at least for me.
Yes – our God is wonderful eye candy and it’s nice to watch him in action but he can’t make up for the rest. Everything feels forced and the timing of the jokes seems off. There are some scenes that are downright silly. I don’t know if it would have made a difference if the star had had more presence but probably not. It has the vibes of Prince on a Rooftop but none of the charm. I really enjoyed that one. I don’t see that much chemistry between the leads either..so I’ve had to move on..too bad – I was really looking forward to it too. Maybe it will improve later but I’m not going to stick around to find out!!
