Remember Kim Tae Hwan, the impressive first-time leading man in My Amazing Boyfriend? Eagle-eyed fans have caught the handsome Korean model-turned-actor in The Bride of the Water God. What is his surprising new role?

After My Amazing Boyfriend became a surprise hit in China last year, the producer hinted that a second season was in the works, but so far there hasn't been any new news. So it's a delightful surprise to see Kim Tae Hwan again.

It turns out that he plays another character with supernatural powers.

Kim Tae Hwan's new character is Jin Geon, a minor god who does not talk, but he still stands out in a fantasy drama populated with gods, minor gods, demi-gods, and unsuspecting humans.

It's not clear yet whether he is making a quick cameo appearance or acting in a support role. We'll find out more as the series progresses. It is unfortunate, or perhaps a coincidence, that Kim Tae Hwan's character stays silent. He was dubbed in My Amazing Boyfriend, a Chinese drama, and I really look forward to hearing what his own voice sounds like.

Perhaps one of the gods or the Water God himself will give him his voice back?
