godsend slapstick

So much CGI to conjure the water kingdom. I prefer Kim Shin’s awesome Middle Heaven to this cheesy setup. But if Bride of the Water God 2017 can sustain its rollicky slapstick tone, I’ll be too happy with all those godsend face slaps and imperious sageuk speech. From what I see, our water god doesn’t seem to having too much of a problem adjusting to the earthly environs. The sight of Im Joo Hwan pruning is just hilarious too in my books, and it’s cute that Krystal is so self-deprecating about playing a celebrity in the drama…which is basically herself playing herself.
