Tbh, I saw Seolhee as kind of pathetic in the past episodes. She was just following Jooman around and not even able to stand up for herself. I saw her as a weak and fragile character. But this scene (plus the break up and the water slap scenes) brought her to a new light.
She is the way she is because of her dream. She did her best to be the best girlfriend because that’s what she needed to fulfill her dream of being a good wife and mother. She took care of all four of them and raised them while they all are away from their families. She has always been that silent support and foundation to all of them.
A lot of people (including me) had belittled motherhood as an occupation thinking that it is a “side job” for women nowadays. Society has made us believe that women in the workforce or corporate world are much cooler than women tending the home. But this opened my eyes that motherhood is indeed a legitimate dream and any woman can work on towards that dream.
Dreams are meant to make you strive hard to be the best that you can be and to make you feel alive. And being a mom can be all that.
Kudos to the writer for incorporating this to the story! Fight My Way is really breaking society’s stereotypes and allowing the smaller voices to be heard.
