Cast & Credits
"Sister is Alive" suffers from inconsistency throughout history. A drama that has no solidity in history, suffers with ups and downs as it relates to the attention of the viewer. It did not start is a promising drama then takes an amazing leap in the history of these women, but near the end begins to go downhill. A shame because the cast was beautiful and the execution exemplary. When the soundtrack is good, but could improve like the cinematography that allowed a good subtle part.
The story. The story was extremely entertaining and imaginative. It had that Jang Bo Ri feeling and the viewer will enjoy the evolution and retribution of more than one evil and demented minded character throughout. There are serious flaws in the storyline - the usual class conscience mothers, the low IQ police, the failure to do what naturally would come to mind if you have common sense, but all of these flaws keep the story moving forward at a pace that does not cause boredom, although you begin to fast forward through some of the scenes that seem superfluous. An attempt at light comedy in many situations made the drama more entertaining, but sometimes I found the humor unnecessary or burdensome to the situation it was applied. This drama focused more on romance for the older generation and let the younger generation barely involved in meaningful relationship development. . Just wish the writers would have tried to focus on more meaningful encounters between the younger actors.
Acting -- Veteran actors that truly did an amazing job in all of the scenes they were cast. They truly carried this drama to the very end. The newbies did well because they had to rise to the level of the veterans. No one did a lackluster or flat role portrayal. Probably awards were given out at the end because of their performances.
Music- the soundtracks did not distract and were appropriate to the mood of the scene.
Rewatch - no-- 68 hours is a long time. If they had compressed this drama into 32 hours it might be but unless there is absolutely no Kdramas or Chinese dramas to watch in my lifetime - no way.
