In a recent interview, actor Park Seo Joon revealed why he is making such a quick comeback to the small screen after Hwarang with KBS 2TVs upcoming drama Fight My Way (tentative title).
Fight My Way is about characters living ordinary, third rate lives. Park Seo Joons character Go Dong Man is a minor league fighter who others may see as a failure; however, Go Dong Man is a refreshingly optimistic character who perseveres through the challenges his life throws at him and is the true master of his own life. He is described to be a character that viewers cannot help but root for because of his admirable and unwavering determination.
Park Seo Joon explained that his character was the main reason for his decision to make a quick comeback after Hwarang and said, Dong Man is a character who does not live at other peoples standards but rather lives by his own values. He owns the life he was given and lives it to the fullest. Even in the ring, he chooses to use standard tactics only because of his truthful and proper mental attitude. He fights his way past difficult obstacles in an optimistic way, which is what drew me to this character.
He continued, Through this project, I think we will be able to tell the story of this generations youth, as well as how their fight can sometimes transform into different things, like love. I think it will become a drama that viewers can watch comfortably so please support it.
Meanwhile, the cast of Fight My Way, which also stars Kim Ji Won of Descendants of the Sun, had their first script reading together a few weeks ago and is set to air in May after the completion of Perfect Wife.
