This paper aims to classify all the traveling fronts of a curvature flow with external force fields in the two-dimensional Euclidean space, i.e., the curve is evolved by the sum of the curvature and an external force field. We show that any traveling front is either a line or Grim Reaper if the external force field is constant. However, we find that the traveling fronts are of completely different geometry for non-constant external force fields.
