Quite a good news for Nam Joo-hyuk's fans. The actor has been reportedly offered the lead role in a tvN drama project named 'Bride of the Water God 2017'. Though he is not yet been confirmed cable station tvN did confirm that the lead role has been offered to him.
The story of the tvN new drama is all set in a fantasy world. According to the reports, the story is of a village where the inhabitants sacrifice young women to water God because the village has been plagued by many years of drought.
One of the young women sacrificed becomes his bride, and complications start. Well, the drama is is said to be a spinoff version and is not a direct remake. The plan is to keep the characters original and rework on the setting mainly to a modern one. It is to be set in Seoul.
Presently, Nam Joo-hyuk is doing wonderfully at the MBC's Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju. The actor plays the character in a funny and devoted way. But it is pretty surprising to hear Nam Joo-hyuk being considered as the potential lead for a huge project like this. The main reason being he is still very young in age as well as in experience. In fact, he debuted as a model just a few years back in 2013 and debuted as an actor in 2014 with Surplus Princess.
Nam Joo-hyuk is seen playing boyish and sweet characters, it will definitely be a huge break for the actor but how good he would be in his performance that can only be known after he confirms it and the drama starts to air. Till then fans can imagine whether he'll be able to take the drama to a new height or not. Bride of the Water God will be airing on tvN, but it has not yet been scheduled.
