Exploring Character Jobs and Workplace Positions in Dramas
While romance is not always the main occupational hazard at most jobs, conniving and plotting co-workers can be. Here are some interesting lines of work we see leading and supporting characters cast in.
Do K-Dramas Shun Sisterhood?
A character that seems to be constant in most Asian dramas is the female protagonist's female best friend, but why does it seem like K-dramas feel it's unnecessary for their female leads to have this side kick?

Seeing this show is an edifying pleasure.
Relatively normal people learning and stumbling, winning and losing, understanding their own value and especially dreaming a lot, is the best experience this show leaves us.

Story:
It's unusual but energizing to find a drama that focuses on characters struggling for a dream ... or struggling to find it. The only possible result of such a plot is that the characters grow throughout the story. read more And this is what happens with our precious Fantastic 4. Although they don't advance in a straight line, but with stumbles, as in life itself.
It's incredible how much you identify with the daily adventures of the characters. Some will reach their goals, others will change course.

Acting / Cast:
Both couples had excellent chemistry. Perhaps in the case of Ae Ra and Dong Man the friendship relationship developed better than romance, but I couldn't say that they didn't work well as a duo, in fact it's the first drama where Park Seo Joon has captured my full attention. That aside, frankly the jewel of this drama is Song Ha Yoon as Sul Hee, did anyone else want to hug her with all their strength? Such an excellent performance!

Music:
Wow, how addicting was the OST, especially the songs for comedy moments. They reminded me and my siblings fighting like The three stooges XD

Overall:
Characters that don't give up, strong but not perfect women, burning dreams, genuine friendship. Do I have to say more? On top of all the flaws you think this story may have, it's a valuable drama to watch. Just give it a chance.
Un drama más al año no hace daño!!

The premise of Fight My Way is so unique! Finally, there is a show about the Quarter Life Crisis. This drama follows the lives of four childhood friends that are now in there late twenties. This Fantastic Four find themselves down of their luck in both love and work. Fight My Way is an adorable Best Friends to Lovers drama.

Park Seo Joon and Kim Ji Won make such adorable leads. Both read more of them do a very good job playing out their roles where love lies right below the surface.

I feel that this drama focused way too much on the secondary leads story. I really felt little love for both Ahn Jae Hong and Song Ha Yoon's characters. I found their story detracting time from the lead couple.

This drama has such a fresh start when it focuses on the leads and their struggles in finding their way in the world. As the show continues, it starts to settle into a more traditional love story. As well toward the end of the drama, it throws in a lot more angst. While I found the disagreement about Seo Joon's character's career path, the birth mystery was really evocative and touching ...

Fight My Way was a good watch. The fresh start is a must watch. I did notice that as the drama started to settle into the typical tropes, I found that it got a little bogged down.

Both have very strong female leads who can have a tendency for violence. Ae Ra and Dan Ah both get screwed over a lot, but work hard because they want a better life. The humor is similar. Both dramas will make you laugh out loud one minute, and then cry the next.
Recommended by EmilyMcCullough
Both have pretty similar vibe. Both dramas contain serious moments, hilarious parts and super cute main couple, which you may learn a thing or two from watching it.

    I watched this when it was currently airing but didn't get to finish it half-way. Maybe, I'll get back to it soon. :)

    I am really enjoying this show!
    A very smooth and easy watch.
    I normally find it hard to like female lead's character in Korean dramas ( since they usually portray her as the stupid, poor, innocent girl), actually it is very rare but in this case i really adore her character the most. Strong, very direct with whatever she wants & likes and extremely cute. Although I've seen her crying a lot during this show and i usually hate it when female lead in a drama cries a lot, but for some reason that didn't annoy me here.

    I was having so much joy while watching these series. THAT WAS PERFECT! 10/10 from me (and I don't really often give such a high score).

    It's been a while since I've gone back to re-watch 1 or 2 scenes and end up re-watching most of the episode. Great drama. I'm a sucker whenever I get to see the relationship part play out rather than just have the drama climax with the couple getting together. The falling in love part is nice, but awesome writing really shines during the course of a couple's relationship. That's exactly what happened here. <3

    Definitely an overated drama. Loved the whole cast. The storyline was predictable. Loved the wonderful friendship that the Fantastic Four had.

    I feel like this was THE MOST OVERRATED DRAMA EVER like I felt so frustrated watching this because it's like watching two 5-year old with the pace of a tortoise trying to kiss. I've seen 14 eps and I swear I ugh. this drama is so damn overrated.

      I can't say I feel the same way but I agree that its a bit overrated. Its a good drama but I think it doesnt deserve the 8.6 rating.

      I just can't see the hype with this as a story or plot, it's mainly the cast from what I've seen but anyway everyone had their cup of tea and this isn't for me. That's all I'm saying.

      Is it really so overrated? It only has 0.7 points more than The Bride of Heabak, which is one of the worst Korean Dramas I have ever seen. Personally for me My Way is already a classic, its not the story, its the chemistry between the fantastic four.

    Such a refreshing drama, loved the characters' passion to follow their dreams and the hardships that come with the journey. The romance was ok but it was the friendship between the Coach and Dongman that I loved the most and the familial bonds between parents & children. The ending was satisfying and wrapped up everything :)

      Nope. I watch almost all Korean romcoms and this is one of the best so far. This drama has so much "heart" its almost crazy.

    This has to be one of the best romcoms from SKorea of all time. I have never seen a couple with such a great chemistry before! And the comedy is on top level as well! I already miss them all. The ending was a bit rushed but still a solid 9.5/10 from me. OST is 10/10.

    I hated this from start to finish but somehow managed to finish it. It is not too boring, but it's just annoying, I kinda hated almost all characters and the story! Choi Woo Shik guest role was highlight for me until they ruined his character as well in the end... It was nice to see him and PSJ back together.

    While I cannot say it is among the best dramas I've ever seen, this is a lighthearted comedy with loads of romance and passion for young people who might or might not be following their dreams. It is painfully realistic in some aspects, yet inspiring in others, swoon-worthy in some moments and heartbreakingly sad in others. I really love the main characters, their undying friendship and support, and especially the coach and namil ajumma!
    If there is one thing I feel that didn't get enough screen time in the end, it is Ae Ra's progession as an MC. They barely ever showed her announcing anything. I feel like it was unrealistic and unfortunate, as she really shined in her 'accidental' on-stage moments earlier in the show.
    For those that need a feel-good show that makes you feel proud to be young and reckless and with some really lovely romance, I would totally recommend this drama! 8.5/10 from me.
