“Hwarang” actor Park Seo Joon and “Descendants of the Sun” star Kim Ji Won are all set for their new fighter drama “Fight for My Way” which is set for a May premiere. The KBS drama marks the first pairing of the two actors who are coming off the success of their recent drama appearances.
Park Seo Joon got busy and booked the “Fight for My Way” quickly after he topbilled the historical drama “Hwarang” along with K-pop idols Park Hyung Sik from ZE:A, SHINee’s Choi Minho, BTS’s V in his first role in a drama, a well as Do Ji Han. Kim Ji Won returns to drama after being paired with Jin Goo in Descendants of the Sun where she played the role of military lieutenant Yoon Myeong Joo. Talks of “Descendants of the Sun” Season 2 are still pending amid the hectic schedules of its lead cast.
According to a report by All K-pop, “Fight for My Way” will be a drama centered on the characters of Ko Dong Man (Park Seo Joon) and Choi Ae Ra (Kim Ji Won) who are constantly fighting when its just two of them but are fiercely loyal to each other once a third party gets in their way. The romantic comedy is expected to employ the friends to lovers formula that KBS has perfected throughout the years.
Aside from Park Sae Joon and Kim Ji Won, also cast in “Fight for My Way” are Ahn Jae-Hong, Song Ha Yoon, Kim Sung Oh, and Pyo Ye Jin. Choi Woo Sik is also expected to make an appearance while viewers should watch out for cameos from Kwak Dong-Yeon who will play Ae Ra’s ex-boyfriend and Hwang Bo Ra will will do a cameo for a surprise role.
