Since the discovery of the first exoplanet in the 1990s, more than 4000 exoplanets have been detected and confirmed, which differ greatly in size, period, and orbital elements Observations of exoplanets in the past unveiled detailed properties of exoplanetary systems and we are currently reaching key questions including "how common the Earth is" in the Milky Way Galaxy. A few major issues are, however, still unsolved in the current exoplanetary science such as how close-in planets formed and evolved, and how they eventually end their life In this talk, I will review the current status on observations of exoplanetary systems and describe how ongoing and future observations, from the ground and space can shed light on those key questions.
