Upcoming KBS drama “Fight My Way” (working title), which previously announced the casting of Park Seo Joon and Kim Ji Won as the lead roles, recently revealed pictures of its first script read-through.
The script reading was held on March 24 at a rehearsal room in the KBS building. The director, Lee Na Jung, was present in addition to the primary cast: Park Seo Joon, Kim Ji Won, Ahn Jae Hong, Song Ha Yoon, Kim Sung Oh, and Choi Woo Shik.
Lee Na Jung said, “Thank you for making today so fun and energetic. The production’s theme is ‘the freedom of youth,’ so I want everyone to freely share their thoughts with each other.”
“Fight My Way” aims to tell a realistic love story among people in the “minor leagues” of life, who may not have brilliant careers in the eyes of the world but persevere in living life the way they want regardless of what people think.
Park Seo Joon plays Go Dong Man, who may be all grown up physically but remains childish in attitude. During the script read-through, he made the cast laugh with his spot-on line delivery. Kim Ji Won plays Choi Ae Ra, who is always ready with a comeback and sometimes has trouble filtering her words. During the read-through, she delivered her lines without hesitation and showed good synchrony with her character. Moreover, the two actors had good chemistry with each other as their characters are longtime friends and remain loyal to each other even as their bickering soon turns into something more.
Ahn Jae Hong plays Kim Joo Man, who is the “brains” of the “Foolish Fantastic Four,” and Song Ha Yoon plays Baek Seol Hee, his girlfriend of six years. Pyo Ye Jin plays Ye Jin, a wealthy new employee who shakes up the couple’s longtime relationship.
The script read-through was reported to have a youthful and energetic atmosphere. After one of the actors read the line, “Please applaud,” the other actors began to spontaneously began to clap along. The cast also hummed their own background music where they felt the OSTs should go later in production.
“Fight My Way” is written by Im Sang Choon. It will air in May after the end of “Perfect Wife.”
