So, Beautiful Daughter-in-law has now appeared. Audiences from all over the world now have a better understanding of the happiness and suffering of a Chinese family as depicted through the story of Yu Wei and Mao Doudou.

Highlight: Beautiful Daughter-in-law is close to the real life. Considering the different habits of overseas audiences, the dialogue in the TV series has been changed to local dialects making easier for others to understand.
