Zeynep (Hande Dogandemir) is a beautiful high school student who has a moderate and ordinary life with her mother Demet (Ebru Aykac) in a small city. 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?

  4. my initial thought when i saw the first few episodes of this series was:boys over flowers!!! and i though t to myself that this is a copy of that…but it really wasnt. not even close!!ive got a couple of episodes left but only the first few were like boys over flowers. the rest waz completely different. sure it is about highschool. love but while zeynep is smart,,beautiful and cunning jan di was boring and i seriously hated her dumb facial expression s. zeynep on the other hand stands firm and strong and i love evey decond i spend watching her and kerem’s love story. i recommend this to any one young at heart. cheers

  5. I’m Persian and I’m in love with this series it’s awesome

  6. It reminded me of “boys over flowers” Korean series. I haven’t watched waiting for the sun yet; if the story is almost like that, please tell me so that I won’t watch this one. Although there sure are differences.

  9. My favourite love story is aksel and melis their story was beautiful and the idea of the dangerous bad boy aksel and the way he falls inlove with melis and accepts her for who she is no matter what and the way she learns to forget her old love kerem and falls inlove with aksel and loves him for who he is .aksel and melis are both broken and have been depressed. and their crazy behaviour is due to the things they have been through in their lives and they both are really alike . And have nobody bt eachother. Aksels love towards melis is beautiful and everlasting and it is not just an ordinary boring story like a nice innocent girl and bad boy it shows real things teenagers experience and the bad side of teenagers and the sensitive sides and the way we learn to develop and learn from our mistakes . And want someone to love us for who we are and stand besides us and understand us .Even kerem can not love zeynep the way aksel loves melis she is his true love and no matter how much years go by he only wants one girl which is melis and wouldn’t change a thing about her and will always stand besides her and no matter how much she leaves he will always follow her and never let go of her . Which is something modern teenagers want a man to accept them for who they are and no matter what happens never let go and stand besides them and love them .and even through the hardest experiences to continue to love and not let go and try to get through it . Because their love is stronger than whatever tragedies have happened . I think not everybody should just focus on zeynep and kerem because it is a normal common story like innocent girl bad boy and then fall inlove people should give others a chance and put their self in their position and be realistic (and no melis is not obcessed with kerem) she loved him and was blinded bt his love which is something almost all teenagers have experience and it was a bad experience for her and she payed the price and there was consequences for her and everyone around her due to her love towards kerem and kerem had no respect for melis. But nobody should forget the fact that in the end melis fell inlove with aksel and he was her true love and ended up together because of Aksels deep love for Melis and even knowing melis might not forgive him he did not let go and always loved her no matter what.

  10. Don’t be so harsh on melis she used to love kerem and nobody can blame her for that she’s a young teenaged girl and we all make mistakes however throughout the show that changes and there is a strong one story which is aksel and melis and they fall inlove .
