Bickering besties Park Seo-joon and Kim Ji-won for Fight My Way
With these two leads, I’m not surprised that we’re in for something cute. The first teaser is out for KBS’s upcoming rom-com Fight My Way (we were calling it Third-Rate My Way, but KBS is going with a fight metaphor and pun in the title, so Fight My Way it is). Park Seo-joon (Hwarang) and Kim Ji-won (Descended From the Sun) star as lifelong friends who specialize in tormenting each other, a dynamic that’s bound to bring on the laughs. And if we’re lucky, it’ll also bring crackling chemistry in a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance.
The coming-of-age drama is about young adults with third-rate specs just struggling to survive, and the blossoming romance between two immature friends whose childish dynamic hasn’t changed despite reaching adulthood. They tease each other relentlessly, but are also the first to defend their best friend against anyone else.
Park Seo-joon’s character is an aspiring Taekwondo athlete described as a teenager in the body of a man, and Kim Ji-won plays an aspiring news announcer with no filter and a sassy attitude. Ahn Jae-hong (Answer Me 1988) and Song Ha-yoon (My Daughter Geum Sa-wol) co-star as a couple of six years who’re friends with the leads.
In the show’s first teaser, our two main characters smile for the camera happily, but it hardly takes a few seconds before they start a fight. Kim Ji-won shoves her microphone and script at Park Seo-joon, while he starts tossing parts of his Taekwondo uniform at her. Well if your idea of fighting is undressing, by all means, carry on.
She quickly gains the upper hand with a chokehold, and the whole thing devolves into an embarrassing hair-pulling match. The best part: Once they’ve got their jackets off, we discover that they’re wearing matching couple tees. HEE. I think I’m going to like this one.
The fight begins in May following Perfect Wife on Mondays and Tuesdays.
