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.

Fight For My Way is also a realistic portrayal of life but instead of talking about youngsters in their 20s, university, first love and so on; it's more about life when you are in your late 20s and early 30s. Do you have a stable job with a decent income? Dreams vs. realistic goals. More committed relationships and marriage. However, both dramas depict the priceless value friendships
Recommended by Teddy A.K.
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.

    This dramas was very good, the example of what a romantic comedy should be, I only had some problems with the last episode I think it was weak compared to the rest of the episodes. Still a very good drama and highly recommend it!

    Wow...just wow. Never a drama with such a "plain" plot and characters managed to make me watch all of it and feel like it was great from the first episode till the last one. When I say plain, I dont mean boring. By plain I mean this is about normal people with normal lives. Its about dreams, work, relationships. It is about real life, yet I felt excited watching it from episode 1 to 16. There were no perfect human beings here. No super rich chaebols or arrogant, genius and good at everything characters. They all had their stregths, but they also had faults.

    This one was a pleasant surprise and it is now part of my Top Dramas List. 9/10 just because I want more.

    Fight for my way doesn't have an epic story, and the story it has is a bit predictable. Still what makes this drama so special is the warm human relationship between the characters. They are so lovable and relatable.
    This is the kind of drama you watch when you just want to relax and smile for a while. Its heartwarming and just beautiful. This drama will put a big grin on your face!

    A rom com about people I can actually relate to. People who are kind of middle class-ish, struggling, settling for small versions of their big dreams, but still having fun and finding love.

    This is an example of how a good Korean drama should be! Fun, romantic, cheesy at times, and inspirational without being too heavy! I had a great time watching this, and I think I might watch it again!
