the Li family had two brothers, Li Tian and Li Minglang. while Minglang, the younger brother was announced the heir of the Li Enterprise, the elder brother Litian, was vengeful and feeling very insecure especially after finding out that he was adopted. Baihe was Minglang's girlfriend before her parents were killed in a car accident. being framed, she lost all her family's wealth to debts. with the risk of bankruptcy, Minglang's mother was against their marriage initially, especially with the interference of Ningxia, a secretary that's deeply in love with Minglang and vowed to keep him for herself.
the series started out promising, especially with the unchanging love Minglang held for Baihe during her most difficult times facing the threats of debtors. Litian played a huge role in breaking the duo apart, causing them to lack communication by misleading them through the trust they held for him. as much as i sympathized with his character, it was difficult to hate him as much as Ningxia, another main villain for the series. however, Ningxia in comparison, was much more convincing. her desperation for love and acknowledgement made her a highly distasteful character, but her effort was equally admirable. despite the happy ending, the experience was far from satisfying, nor was their reunion heartwarming, just essential after the mass amount of episodes painfully endured.
