4. Families with Big Residences and Conglomerates

In Turkish dramas, we usually see big houses and conglomerates as if we all have rich husband, pal or relative. Characters have strength and money and can do something they wantbut we can’t recognize how they earn cash because they regularly do now not work: they visit their places of workgrasp out there only some seconds and do useless things that are not associated with their paintings. We see those bosses typically attending to gentle or signing an vital settlement butnothing else.

We also see what takes place a number of the servants who live in those large residences. There are continually scenes about servants who have chat inside the kitchens. these servants recognise the secrets and techniques of the circle of relativesa number of them are loyal whilst others are not.

moreover, marrying with those extraordinary wealthy families comes with a fee in Turkish dramas.
