The spotlight was made for Nam Joo Hyuk

Recent news reports claim that the  Scarlet Heart: Ryeo actor has another starring role to consider adding to his already impressive resume. tVN is anxious to get the in-demand actor and model to star in their upcoming series tentatively titled Bride of the Water God. Kim Byung Soo, the genius behind TV dramas like Incomplete Life and Nine: Nine Time Travels, plans to bring the spinoff version of the beloved fantasy romance manhwa to life. Bride of the Water God is about a water god who is willing to end a drought in a village only if they give him a young bride.

So, will the 22-year-old star accept the starring role in Kim Byung Soo PD's new production? YG Entertainment had this to say about their talent: "It's true that Nam Joo Hyuk has been offered the lead role in Bride of the Water God, but nothing has been confirmed."

Nam was a part of four K-dramas last year, including your favorites Cheese in the Trap and Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. He wraps up his latest MBC sports series Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo on January 11. I don't know about you, but I can not get enough of Nam Joo Hyuk! I have been a fangirl since his appearance in Akdong Musician's music videos "100%" and "Give Love." I'm all for him accepting this new project.

Do you want to see him take on another production based on a popular comic?
