Aside from the historical drama, Im Joo Hwan also appeared in "Boys Over Flowers," "Ugly Alert" and "Shine or Go Crazy." The Korean actor recently shared the small screen with Kim Woo Bin and Suzy in "Uncontrollably Fond."

Meanwhile, "Bride of the Water God 2017" is said to be an adaptation of a romcom webtoon. Allkpop reported the upcoming tvN drama will be spearheaded by Kim Byung Soo as the producer, who will work together with "Misaeng's" scriptwriter.

"Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo" actor Nam Joo Hyuk will play as Haebak the water god, while Shin Se Kyung will take the role of Soah. On the other hand, Gong Myung is set to star as Biryeom the wind god, and Krystal was confirmed to take Hera's role in "Bride of the Water God 2017."
