I was anticipating and waiting for this drama waited for Nam Joo Hyuk however........we never got see Habaek's full pontential we wanted to see his power , wanted to see him transform Shin Se-Kyung into his bride.....This show could have gone on without the two leads (please don't be offended, this is just my opinion).I have always felt that Shin Se-Kyung's performances lack a certain spark.The acting of other casts outshine the first leads. I never like shin se kyung, sorry for her fans, not bcoz i'm jealous but it's not comfort to see her lame acting, I did'nt tell her acting was bad, sometimes it fits her.But, considering the idea of the story, this drama is worth enough to watch. Maybe someday she can get actor that matched perfectly. when your supporting idols are annoying af in the drama, always creating trouble, both overacting as h*ll.I do not feel chemistry between the first leads and i just think they're still awkward to each other.Surprisingly, i feel more chemistry between shin se kyung and lim ju hwan or krystal and nam joo hyuk. All i can watch just nam joo hyuk baby face lol, however the character for krystal, lim jung hwan and gong myung suit them all.
Yes, I've never read the book so I can't really say for sure what areas if the drama were different from the book but honestly, it's basically, if not almost impossible, to make a drama EXACTLY like the original book/whatever it originated as.To the people asking why dis drama was named bride of habaek Jhalduro,its cause this was adapted from a manhwa named the bride of the water god n i honestly dunno why they changed the storyline when it was so amazing Awesome drama but i expect too much.
