Zeynep has been raised without knowing her father but she always think about him when she stays alone. She was told that her father was a seaman and was lost in the sea when he was on duty.   

When Demet’s job does not go well, she decides to go to Istanbul with her daughter in order to have a new life there. Since they have lost everything, they want a new start immediately. Demet’s childhood friend Jale (Deniz Turker) who is living in Istanbul starts to help them when Demet and Zeynep arrives at Istanbul. Jale is a director of one of the well-known colleges in Istanbul: Sayer College. She helps Zeynep to be registered in this college. Although school fee is so expensive, Zeynep is accepted to this college with a scholarship.

In her new life, Zeynep has to endure lots of difficulties. While she is trying to adjust to her new life in Istanbul, she also tries to get along with her shallow, privileged, rich classmates. Kerem (Kerem Bursin) is the king of the school and no one, not even the teachers, dare challenge him. He is handsome, arrogant, and the son of the owner of the school. From the start, Kerem persists on bullying Zeynep and tries everything to force Zeynep run away from his school. However, he does not know that Zeynep is a really insistent girl who never gives up. Also, there is another girl, Melis (Yagmur Tanrisevsin) who is in love with Kerem and fort his reason, does everything what Kerem wants. Baris (İsmail Ege Sasmaz), on the other hand, is a close friend of Kerem but he does not tolerate Kerem’s attitude towards Zeynep. That’s why, Baris starts to help Zeynep and stays next to her all the time.

As the story develops, Kerem and Zeynep begin to find themselves attracted to each other.  

On the other hand, as the story develops, it is revealed that Cihan (Emre Kinay) who is a sports teacher at school is a real father of Zeynep. This secret buried in the past not only changes the life of Zeynep but also changes the life of Melis. This is because, Melis is the daughter of Cihan and she does not want to share his father with another girl.  

In this story, you will explore friendship, family relations and modern college life. How long the bullying of Kerem continue? Can two people who come from different worlds love each other? What will happen when Zeynep learns that his father is alive and standing in front of her? Will Zeynep find happiness in her new life?

    This has a staggering resemblance to one of the most popular teenage soap operas ever, althoug it has some differences I think this show must be inspired by it. Rebelde Way is the name of the original, it was an Argentine soap opera broadcasted in 2002-2003 that was pupular world wide being broadcasted in (albany,germany, australia, bolivia, Bosnia, Bulgary, chile, colombia, costa rica, Croatia, ecuador, slovenia, slovakia,Spain, usa, guatemala, honduras, georgia, greece,israel, italy, kazakhstan, mexico, moldavia, montenegro, nicaragua,paraguay, peru, poland,portugal, puerto rico, czech republic, republic of macedonia, dominican republic,romania,russia,el salvador, serbia, turkey, ukrain, uruguay and venezuela)It was so popular that has had many versions the most popular remake is the Mexican one Rebelde, but it was also copied by Brasil.

    –synopsis–

    Drama’s main idea( hate turns to a love) come from one korean drama called Boys over flower. This drama is getting interesting. Zeynep and Kerem love each other but there is some problems such as Melis and Barış, because Barış and Zeynep will date for a while and Melis is still loving Kerem. Cihan figure it out that Zeynep his daughter but he could not tell her because of Melis. And there is an another character called Aksel. Aksel is enemy of Kerem and Barış and falls in love with Melis. Many rumours are telling that Aksel will do something Kerem’s car and Kerem will get in accident and coma but this is just a rumour yet… When you see the love between Zeynep and Kerem, you will want to watch more :)

      I am french and i am waiting for english subs because i can’t find french subs. Please sent an adress in this e-mail if you find (fionavaeziash@gmail.com)

  4. Natalie says:

    I wonder the same thing as Kay: does anyone know where we can watch this online with English subs? I’ve kept my eye on the Viki page for ages now since that is the only place I’ve found that has subs for this show, but they’re not re-uploading the removed episodes :/ They were removed due to copyright infringement, I think, so they probably don’t want to upload them again and go through the same process twice. It’s too bad though, ’cause a lot of people want to watch this show.

  5. esther says:

    as other said,is there anywhere so we can watch it with English Sub? Pls and thanks.

  6. Gül says:

    No,because it was meant to be for the turkish viewers,not for americans or other people.

  7. mahtab says:

    It’s a perfect series I never liked Turkish and Korean series but when I saw this I changed my opinion about Turkish series. Kerem loves Zeynep crazily but there are other things in their love that attract you and keep you watching and waiting for the new episode. one of this series’ main idea is “greatest love starts with hate”.
    now the last episode is 49th and I’m waiting for 50th :D
    I heard this series has copied from other series but I watched some parts and episodes of those series and I understand that it’s not true.
    it’s a special series and from other movies and series. I suggest u to watch it and enjoy.
