On Park Seo-joon (Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth) and Kim Ji-won (Descendants of the Sun), Lee Gun-joon said, “They are taking care of each other and cheering each other on. They are both committed to their characters. They have good chemistry in real life, and they’re having a lot of fun while filming.”

Park Seo-joon and Kim Ji-won star in the drama as Go Dong-nam and Choi Ae-ra, respectively. Go Dong-nam is a former popular taekwondo player now working as a contract worker while Choi Ae-ra aspires to be a news anchor but is still stuck at the information desk of a department store. The two have been best friends since their childhood years until they became romantically linked.

The chief producer of the drama noted that the secondary couple — Ahn Jae-hong and Kim Sung-oh — also work together very well. In the drama, the characters portrayed by the two actors have been dating for six years and are friends with the main characters.

The chief producer also noted that he is satisfied with the casting, saying that he is very proud of the cast and grateful since many fans have been expressing how much they enjoy the new KBS drama.

Fight For My Way centers on the story of Choi Ae-ra and Go Dong-nam who are both living “third-rate” lives and going through major setbacks in achieving their dream career paths. It airs every Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS at 22:00 Korean Standard Time.
