I'm not familiar with Manhwa, but as a first time read - I have no doubts that I've chosen a fairly adequate one. The bride of the water god is a story about a girl who was sacrificed by the people of her village to the water god in exchange for rain.

Such as the water god's interesting, shall we say, condition.

In the Bride of the Water God, we meet a TRAGIC woman named Soah, why is she so sad?

It's her wedding day.

Her husband?

The terrifyingly ugly, cruel, bad-tempered water god.

And so, dressed in her wedding day best; she is put on a boat and pushed out to sea only to be swallowed up by the water. She awakes in unknown foreign territory and the first person she sees is an old geezer who says he'll show her the way to the water god.

Children: YAY! The end!

No children, it's only the beginning

*Creepy horror movie sound effects*

The story was supposed to be a happy-ending-ed oneshot, that would have read more

The first time I heard of "The Bride of the Water God" I thought it was one of those same old boring manwha, but was I wrong! This manwha has blown me away!!

Art: The Art is outstanding and is totally beautiful! The author has a certain touch that makes the characters look alice and the scenery is gorgeous!

Story: The story is unique. Soah, the main character, is offered to the Water God because the village has been left in drought.When she gets to the water kingdom she is surprised to not see this hideous monster, but *not saying a spoiler* The story really read more
