  8. this is a boring drama series I ever had seen it doesn’t reply and good message for viewers,actually it doesn’t have any meaning.

    • If you cannot find the meaning of this show then you are definetly judging it without ever watching it. The meaning of the show appeared from the first episode! It teaches you to becarful who you deal with and open your doors to. Sevket ( and all the other men) was dangerously attracted to ferhunde, and it changed his life completely. Oguz brought unthinkable trouble to 2 siblings and left them more enemies than sisters. And so on and so on, I think this was a brilliant series about family and the actors were all excellent. It truly made me feel like they were my actually family!
