"Even though it's my first time working with Kim Ji Won, we talked a lot in the early stages of filming so it feels like we've always known each other. We have good chemistry now that we're quite close," he said.

Park Seo-joon, who recently appeared in a leading role in 'Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth,' added his real-life friendship with Kim Ji-won reflects the comfort shared between their fictional counterparts; "Our characters in the drama were close friends ever since they were young, so we just treat each other comfortably on set."

The two actors also talked about the dynamic shared between their characters in 'Fight My Way.' "The two characters always fight but they care about each other a lot. It's okay if I tease her but I can't stand other people bothering her. I look forward to their relationship that moves from friends to lovers," Park Seo Joon said.
