This is an excellent drama for whoever looking for a fresh, different flavor of romance/family genre. I was deeply moved by the story. I found out about this drama when I've had enough with all those clichéd romance drama having easily-guessed stories typically about good looking, well-off guy having a mysterious crush with a beautiful lady and get married at the end of the story. Anyway, Dear Sister is definitely different. For those who are planning to watch, please take note...the first few episodes might seem a bit plain or rather boring, but don't give up watching it. The story gets much more interesting (and emotional) as it progresses. With more complicated twisted plot and characters development, you can't really guess the ending. What makes the drama even better is the leads acting skills. Ishihara's absolutely brilliant in the show. She's really good in portraying herself as the charming, free-spirited younger sister, a bubbly young lady in her late 20s shouldering tons of problems. Matsushita is not bad as well to act as the "socially-awkward" elderly sister. You might need to prepare packs of tissues for the last episodes. Totally worth watching!
