After a very, and we mean VERY, long brainstorming session, FOX's remake of the Korean rom-com Cunning Single Lady finally found its Turkish title and it is Aşk Mantık İntikam.
The highly-anticipated summer rom-com began production on May 17, with Murat Öztürk directing and Özlem İnci Hekimoğlu and Nil Güleç Ünsal. The series stars İlhan Şen, Burcu Özberk, Burak Yörük and Melisa Döngel; as well as Günay Karacaoğlu, Zeynep Kankonde, Süleyman Atanısev, Mehmet Korhan Fırat, Sevda Baş, Ceren Koç, Birgül Ulusoy, Tarık Şerbetçioğlu and Mehmet Yılmaz.
As with the original, the remake follows the female protagonist as she tries to win back the heart of her now rich ex-husband.
When Esra* (Burcu Özberk) met Ozan (İlhan Şen), she worked as a waitress to make ends meet. To elevate her living standards, she makes the logical decision to marry Ozan, but she opted for a divorce with the great difficulties faced in the marriage. After the divorce, Ozan opens a software company and becomes very rich. When Esra learns this fact, she somehow maneuvers her way to a position at Ozan's company to win back his heart, come hell, come high water.
“Does love really end when we say it's over? Or does it deserve a second chance?," is the motto of 'Aşk Mantık İntikam,' which is officially set to premiere Friday, June 11 on FOX!
The article was updated to reflect the name change of Burcu Özberk's character in the series. Her character name is now Esra.
