WOW. Just WOW.
Fight For My Way is an amazing drama!
The concept is simple and easy to understand. The outcome is predictable but what engages you it’s the road to get there. And I feel so identified with both of the main characters (especially Dong Man). I love the setting! Them living in not a fancy neighbor, which is a very real context for a young person living alone. The editing (lightning and coloring) are good.
The acting and writing are so good that one can easily see what’s in between the lines in the relationship of Dong Man and Ae Ra. In two episodes they’ve given us enough insight on the present and backstory to get the idea that they are too much friends to try and think about being something more… But it isn’t as if they haven’t thought about it.
Throughout episode 1 I was pretty sure Ae Ra had a one-sided “crush” (*cough*love*cough*) but then the flashback came at the very very end and it totally changed my mind. Now I’m expectant to see what will be the factor to make them realize that they live (they’ve always have) like a married couple. And not just because of the trust between them but also because of how they support, truly know and care about each other. At the end of episode 2, Ae Ra didn’t ask him “Hey, what’s wrong?”, she just said what he needed to hear and Ae Ra said it because she believes in those words. The same as him protecting her, reminding her that even if she tries to look tough and scary to others, he knows she isn’t indestructible. They both let each other see their most vulnerable sides. IF THAT’S NOT A COUPLE RELATIONSHIP THEN WHAT.
Their relationship is so satisfyingly full of life that it makes me excited (and a bit anxious) on what’s to come. Especially knowing that they both have had another romantic interests…
I want to see them accomplishing their dreams, so that it my hopes go up in accomplishing my owns. That’s the level of conection I feel with this story.
