Kiralık Aşk launched my debut into Turkish dizis. It has its flaw but I enjoyed it immensely. Let’s leave its flaws for another day. Eng subs are pretty hard to find, but you can find some translations at this English Fandom. ENJOY!!
I would have very much like to talk about how KA totally took up my time and mind, but imma skip on it and just jump into the gallery. For the record; the genre/themes (romance, comedy, family issues, and friendship on and off screen), plot, acting, actors, and OSTs were simply amazing!! However, the writing and directing could use some improvements. I would rate the show 9 out of 10, but the fangirl in me is leaning towards a 9.5 hehehe
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of the pictures, gifs, videos, and translations. Credit goes to the owners…. Also there might be double or even triple posting of some photos. It’s not intentional, or maybe it is XDD
One more thing, just so you know, you might also get your soul stolen. Don’t say you weren’t warned!
Okay, no turning back now!!!
The OSTs first – Playlist, for more soundtracks with scenes of Defom, Eng/Arabic subbed Deföm scenes, and MVs –> Safaaly’s, Zineb, Kiralik Ask Sequence, and Andrea. Of course there are tons of accounts dedicated to the drama.
Okay off to the gallery
Ending scene for KA. It makes you crave a family of your own lol!!
Group selfie for season 2’s cast!!
The main cast for the first season – Neriman & Necmi in the middle, Sinan & Yasemin in yellow, and the main OTP – Defne & Ömer on the right.
Ep 1 – both the slap and kiss were totally on point XDD
I LOVE this duo – Nergis (Neriman) & Onur (Koray). Yes they can grate on your nerves but they are pretty awesome
I don’t think anyone can top this confession!!
Ep 17 (Ep 18?)
Koray is the only who doesn’t understand he might get killed very soon lol!!!
Ep 1 – After the resounding slap
Mayra (Emine), Defne and Ömer’s baby girl.
The last proposal (ep 67). This took the viewers down memory lane. His other proposals also romantic.
So much undercurrent in this scene AND it was just the 5 mins into the second ep.
Translation by Zeynep “This is my story… My adventure… I never gave up… No matter how much I became sad, tired and exhausted… I always believed. The thing you said about that is totally impossible, one day, It will become the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to you. That’s why… Believe. And never give up on believing in miracles… Goodbye…”
Defne’s love interests – Selim, Sinan, Pamir, and Tranba from top to bottom. None of which she cared about, except for Ömer of course.
Ömer’s love interests – Iz, Yasemin, Feryal, and Fikret from top to bottom. They were actually not subtle at all, but Ömer being Ömer had his way of rejecting them lol! With the exception of Defne.
Characters in the 2nd season
The last writing on the wall. Neriman’s place, Defne’s family house, Iso’s work place, and Sinan’s place from L-R. (Ep 69)
Eps 4, 52, and 69 from top to bottom. They are both really good looking!!
Our one and only Usta Sadri, the actor died of cancer shortly after the show ended… May his soul rest in peace…
He looks so damn good in those suits!
Defne and baby Iso! The kid is sooo cute!!
One of those things that seem to only happen in dramaland lol! (Ep 69)
Jealous much Defne?! lol!
He always hate on everyone lol!
Ep 55 hahaha!!
My new dance move hehehe
Defne & Sinan (ep 69). They had such a beautiful friendship. They’ve come a long way from when she had a crush on him, and him on her. After which they became each other buddies, confidants and were always on the same side lol!!
Neriman trying to do her brain-washing again lol!! Elcin/Defne looks so pretty in that dress.
Eps 3, and 69 from R-L
After she broke the news of her pregnancy (Ep 69)
He was referring to Ömer and Defne after they kinda made up after the 1-year break (Ep 60)
I love this selfie hehehe!!
Koray’s birthday gift to Emine…. So schweeet!!
A summary of the last episode. The ep had so much warmth, but that doesn’t mean I forgive them for rushing it though.
Different faces and hairstyle of Defne. I really do love her hair colour.
He looks handsome as always, but I was glad when he trimmed the beard. He looks so much better when it isn’t so full imo.
Group selfie at the beginning and at the end.
Sinan’s family – Sinan, Lara, and Seda from L-R. Lara is so cuute!! All the kids of KA are really cute.
Such a drama queen lol!! Every thing startles him hehehe
He sometimes pretend to cry lol!! It never works on Ömer lol!!
Ep 58 – Defne signaling to Ömer to meet her outside.
Elcin is facing the camera this time around hehehe!
Sinan’s wedding (Ep 68)
Me love them all! I really dislike Neriman in the first season, but she started making sense in the 2nd season lol! It’s a love-hate feeling. Koray is just Koray – diva and drama queen lol! Sinan and Iso are such wonderful friends. Nihan is amazing lol! Serdar, yeah he was the catalyst for the whole issue, apart from that he’s pretty useless XDD Pamir was underused, but it was good to see him ruffle Ömer’s feathers. Seda – elegant, modern working divorced single mother. Ömer and Defne COMPLETE each other!
The crew behind the scene with Koray & Neriman.
Koray as a coach and goalkeeper hehehe!!
Deföm ran into a hitch in ep 68
Ömer always have on this panic and pained look on his face anytime Defne leaves him or when he can’t fins her.
Sukru abi!! He saved the day numerous times.
Iso!! I hear he’s good friends with Elcin IRL. With a friend like Iso, your back is always covered!
Ömer & Sinan displayed such a remarkable bromance, despite how extremely different they are.
Proposal scene ep 67 *kyaa*
They are supposedly ready for a football game. Baris sure stands out XDD
Sinan’s upset face (ep 68)
Neriman trying to persuade Defne that she (Defne) is preggy, but the poor thing is in denial lol!
I kinda feel sorry for the waiter standing at the back. I wonder how long he had to stand for.
Aytekin is another drama queen lol!!
Warm up session by Koray lol!
Poor SInan is upset about Seda’s opinion on having kids. He turns to Ömer and Defne for help, but they ended up flirting instead hahahha
Oooh did Zubeyir shoot a goal?
Oh oh someone got a yellow card….
I love this picture!!! Zubeyir is looking confused as usual, Sinan is totally done with the match at this point, while Koray and Aytekin are having their own showdown hehehe
Defne is being barricaded with questions from both Nihan and Neriman (ep 68)
Eps 1 and 67
First time she met with Usta Sadri and he approved of her. And named her Ömer’s Defne XDD (Ep 3)
The last engagement ring
Ömer will definitely make a good father (eps 63, 65, and 69)
These three, you wait for when they gang up against each other lol!
Ömer & Lara behind the scene
ep 67 – Santa Claus
They went to Defne’s hood to watch a football match (ep 66)
Someone making his return after his long absence
Koray trying to persuade and trick Ömer into wearing Santa Claus hat lol! He totally failed hehehe
Defne got tricked into thinking Ömer was planning their wedding hehehe!
Esra, Defne’s sister, played by Melisa Giz Cengiz
Baby Iso and Koray
Mine!!! I need to look up her real name XDD
Baby Iso is pretty popular!
Oh boy, poor Sinan is caught on the middle of Koray & Neriman. Very very unfortunate hahaha!
Defne got really restless when Ömer had to make an urgent trip (ep 66)
How can anyone not love this cast?!
I felt sorry for Pamir in this ep (ep 65). He dropped by at Ömer’s house and surprise, surprise Defne opened the door. As if his heart wasn’t broken enough, he also had to witness Ömer being super concerned and worried about Defne.
One of my favourite scenes (Ep 45)
Moi loves this!!
Ep 51, an episode before the wedding.
They were suppose to design a shoe together, which didn’t happen that evening. Too much sexual tension in the air lol!
From Mudje’s IG
A flashback which showed they actually ran into each other some years back (Ep 30)
Koray’s birthday! This scene was really hilarious. Koray made his entrance more than 4 times *facepalm* It’s so Koray lol!
I still can’t believe that Ömer couldn’t play billiard lol!! Everyone in the room could sense the sexual tension between both of them lol!
LOL!!! Defne was having a hard time connecting a conference call in this ep.
Ep 1 in black and white and ep 43 in colour – You can see just how far their relationship has come.
At this point I wanted Fikret out asap!
The contrast in their facial expression lol!! (Ep 68)
Take a moment to appreciate his glorious tattoo!!
So sweeeeet!!! (Ep 69)
