The BEST Turkish Drama!
5 February 2017 | by thegoodturkSee all my reviews

This is quite possibly one of the best Turkish dramas I have ever watched. The actress who plays Hulya does an amazing job plus she is drop-dead gorgeous! She goes after what she wants and she usually gets it. Sometimes she is a little mischievous in how she gets things done with her best friend Mahir, but it's fun to watch. You have to admit that there is a Hulya in all of us. From the start of the show, we see that Hulya has had a crush on Kerim from a very young age, vowing to marry him. Hulya gets what she wants; so yes, she does marry him. It starts out a little rocky because it is an arranged marriage but once Kerim sees how strong-willed, compassionate, fun-loving and family- oriented she is, he can't help but fall in love with her.

This is a story about a flourishing love and a family who sticks by each other through thick and thin. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be sad, mad and happy in almost every episode. It's a roller-coaster of emotions with amazing scenes that have you cheering for us protagonist, saying "You go girl!"

Thank you to the actors, actresses, directors and all of the crew for this beautiful show that we look forward to every Tuesday!
