Fight for my Way

It has everything I love Korean dramas for. It is entertaining, lighthearted and just overall fun to watch. I found the storyline cute, I liked the romantic bits with a touch of struggle to balance it out. I always enjoy, when they put some extra effort into styling the shots. Even if they are everyday activities I just really like a beautiful shot. This drama is filled with such imaginary, it definitely is a worthy watch.

The storyline is similar it’s cinematography, it put emphasis on the everyday struggles with work and relationships. For this reason people found it very refreshing. Our four lead characters struggle for success is something everyone can emphasise with. 

What makes this drama really shine, is the four lead actors performance. Because the plot is so character focused, it needed actors who have good chemistry together. Thankfully Kim Ji Won, Park Seo Joon, Song Ha Yoon and Ahn Jae Hong are a superb combination. They are extremely talented. Park Seo Joon clearly have a talent for martial arts and learning the choreography of the fight scenes. Kim Ji Won is a born actor, I seriously love anything she does. I was very happy to see these two as a couple. Song Ha Yoon and Ahn Jae Hong made the characters really lovable and I think the most relatable.
