Fight for My Way is from 2017 but I want to post about it because I LOVED IT. If you liked Park Seo Joon in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?, I think you’ll love him more in Fight for My Way. And if you loved Kim Ji Won in Descendants of the Sun, then seriously what are you waiting for? Fight for My Way is on Viki with English subtitles.
Fight for My Way is a friends-to-lovers rom-com with a great cast, a lot of laughs, and so many heartfelt moments. One of its strengths is how relatable it is. Our main characters, Dong Man (Park Seo Joon), Ae Ra (Kim Ji Won), Joo Man (Ahn Jae Hong), and Baek Seol Hee (Song Ha Yoon) are close friends and neighbors. Dong Man and Ae Ra have been friends since childhood, and both have big dreams buried in their hearts but are making it through each day with jobs they don’t love. Meanwhile, Joo Man and Seol Hee have dated for six years and work at the same company, where they’ve kept their relationship a secret.
I love the depth of Dong Man and Ae Ra’s friendship; they know each other so well and they are incredibly loyal to each other. They stick up for each other, let the other cry on their shoulder, and drop everything for each other. I adored their every scene together. The obstacles they each face in pursuit of their dreams are so frustrating and realistic.
Joo Man and Seol Hee have a sweet relationship, but Joo Man has a better position at the company than she does and Joo Man’s family doesn’t think she’s good enough for their son. Seol Hee treats Joo Man so well that he feels suffocated, and then there’s the pretty new intern who has her eyes set on Joo Man. I really liked Seol Hee’s character development throughout the series.
Fight for My Way is delightful, and bonus points for having an OST song by BTOB members Eunkwang, Hyunsik, and Sungjae.
