Jo Boa offered SBS weekend drama Sister Is Alive
Actress Jo Boa (The Man Living in Our House, Monster) is being courted to lead writer Kim Soon-ok’s (My Daughter Geum Sa-wol) upcoming weekend drama Sister Is Alive. It’s centered around three women who bond in friendship over suffering from a shared emotional trauma. Despite not having any blood ties, they decide to adopt and raise a child together, who becomes a source of joy and healing for them.
Jo Boa’s character is an optimistic girl with a sunny disposition who makes a career out of her passions after enduring much hardship. Upon graduating from beauty school, she works part-time at a nail shop, while also helping out at the neighborhood stationery stop. In the drama, she is accepted into a prestigious internship at Ruby Beauty, but she’s wrongfully terminated. Fortunately, she succeeds starting her own business by creating her own line of all-organic makeup products using locally grown rose oil. She’s innocent but outspoken, and looks fragile but knows how to love.
As a weekend drama lover, I’m curious to see how this will pan out. I’ve been a fan of Writer Kim Soon-ok ever since her hit 2008 makjang daily drama Temptation of Wife. It was definitely crazy, but crazy in the most emotionally wrenching, addictive way. Her latest drama My Daughter Geum Sa-wol starring Baek Jin-hee was also a ratings success, so I guess the rest is up to PD Choi Young-hoon who will be directing Sister Is Alive. He has an eclectic group of projects on his record from High Society to Iljimae, and he’s worked with the writer before in Five Fingers, so hopefully this collaboration will turn out well.
Sister Is Alive will air starting this April on SBS after Our Gap-soon ends its run.
