This is what you need to know:
Around 80 years ago five friends came together and made a pact to always stand by each other. They promised to help each other and support each other. They formed the Golden Quill Consortium. Every generation has a chance to compete for the Golden Quill and the winner is awarded as head of the Consortium. Part two of the Golden Quill follows the lives of their children and grandchildren.
Note - if you want more background information on the families then you can read The Golden Quill. Part one of the Golden Quill featured Lee Soo-hyuk, Jung Hoseok, Min Yoongi, Jeon Jungkook, Kim Taehyung and Namjoon as main characters.
Also for the sake of the story, names and ages are altered. The characters will still look the same though.
Their family names are:
Lee – Construction and Real Estate
Song – Security and Technology Systems (Oracle)
