Finger hearts in new stills for Fight My Way
You know what’s missing from the dramaland landscape right now? A good ol’ fashioned rom-com. Which is why I’m happy that Park Seo-joon’s (Hwarang) Fight My Way (previously titled Third-Rate My Way) is coming out soon. This upcoming drama is centered around the lives of two best friends in their twenties, who are struggling with realizing their dreams because of their third-rate stats on paper (e.g., college grades, test scores, awards, etc.).
A few more stills have been released for this drama, featuring the two main characters played by Park Seo-joon and Kim Ji-won (Descended From the Sun). Park Seo-joon plays a former high school Taekwondo star who’s now a corporate drudge, although he still dreams about making it in the professional fighting world. He doesn’t live by others’ standards; he lives for his own values. So even in the face of temptation when everyone else is cheating, he still follows all the rules in the fighting arena because he keeps to his own moral code. In addition, despite all the difficulties that he’s had to face inside and outside the ring, he keeps an optimistic view on life.
Kim Ji-won, on the other hand, works as a info desk clerk at a retail department store, but her ultimate goal is to become a news anchor. In a recent interview, she said that she chose Fight My Way as her comeback project because she was attracted to this main tagline in the script: “No matter what anyone else says, we’ll go our way.” She continued on by saying that the drama is “not about worldly success, but about living for yourself and about the obstacles and the love that follow.”
Her character is the type of person who always does her best, and is brave about confronting the world around her. Kim Ji-won said that her character “takes joy in the little things in life, and expresses her emotions fully, without filter, which is far different from my previous roles.” She also liked that Ae-ra (her character) knows what it is to be hurt, but also knows how to recover from pain, and stay true to her feelings.
So it looks like we have two solid characters, who are all set up to gain our sympathy and love. KBS’s Fight My Way, which tells the story of how two individuals mature through their life obstacles, work towards their dreams, and also find love in each other, will begin airing on Mondays and Tuesdays starting May 8.
