Fans who missed "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo" star Nam Joo Hyuk will finally get to see him again in a fantasy drama from tvN. The actor has been cast as the lead in the webtoon adaptation "Bride of the Water God" 2017.

According to a report by Soompi, tvN has announced that the initial script reading for the drama will be on March 16. The "Bride of the Water God" 2017 cast will start shooting as early as March 22.

Based on the official announcement by the network, besides Nam Joo Hyuk, stars confirmed to appear in "Bride of the Water God" 2017 are Shin Se Kyung, as well as Gong Myung, and f(x) member Krystal. Nam Joo Hyuk will play the role of Ha Baek, the water god while Shin Se Jyung will take on the role of Soah, a girl who is sacrificed to be his bride.

The original manhwa is set as a period piece as villagers suffering from drought offer up a sacrifice to the water god to appease him. However, early reports hint that "Bride of the God" 2017 will adopt a modern spin to the tale.

According to a report by Kpopstarz, it is still not revealed how the role of Ha Baek will be adopted in a modern setting but the role of his bride, Soah, will be a neuropsychiatrist that is forced into debt because of a philanthropic father. Gong Myung will play Biryeom, the wind god, while Krystal will play the character of Hera in "Bride of the God" 2017.

Aside from the impressive young cast members, "Incomplete Life" writer Jung Yoon Jung will be on board to do the script for the fantasy drama. "Bride Of The Water God" 2017 will also be produced by "Nine: 9 Times Time Travel's" Kim Byung Soo. No specific air date has been set for the drama but it is expected to be released in the second half of 2017.
