I've wanted to finish this series as quickly as possible so that I can write a review.

From the love relationships to the corporate strategies, the twists and...

This is a really good series. I highly recommend it. It contains love, siblings, relationships, family, caring, forgiveness, and dream. They're gone through 13 years of difficult time.All the family members always support and forgive each other.Finally, dream becomes true
