The upcoming Turkish series “Bir Derdim Var” will soon premiere on KanalD!

When I first heard the name of this series, it felt like a trip back to my high school years, almost like a journey to the past. That’s because the name of this series comes from the very popular “Bir Derdim Var” song from my high school years.

In fact, the promotional music of the series also features the song “Bir Derdim Var” by “Mor ve Ötesi.”

This song, a Turkish Rock classic, was a big hit in 2004 and has managed to become an unforgettable and timeless piece of music.

Before we dive into the series introduction, let’s watch the music video of “Bir Derdim Var” by Mor ve Ötesi, released in 2004:

Mor ve Ötesi – Bir Derdim Var 2004

The lyrics of “Bir Derdim Var” go as follows:

I have a problem now, I can't hold it inside,
How far should I go, what's the use of staying?
I never explained, they never understood,
Why is everyone an enemy, why is everyone an enemy?
We forgot everything, even Noah's breath,
Don't come to me; you are someone else, and I am someone else.
I have a problem now, I can't hold it inside,
How far should I go, what's the use of staying?
I never explained, they never understood,
Look, this is the last act; there's no more game after this,
No light, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing.
I have a problem.
I have a problem now, I can't hold it inside…

Now, let’s move on to the series description 🙂

After a four-year hiatus, Birce Akalay, portraying the character of Doctor Nilüfer, shared the following about her new project and character: “Returning to television after four years initially felt a bit intimidating, but my opinion changed the moment I read the script. This story touched me deeply and excited me. I finished the script for the first episode, and I couldn’t sit still all night. I paced around the living room, and the voice inside me said, ‘This is it.’ Doctor Nilüfer is a woman who helps our troubled young people, heals them, and treats them, a different kind of doctor. We will try to bring the stories of our young patients in the child-adolescent psychiatry department to the screen.”

Mert Fırat, returning with the character of Prosecutor Ömer, shared his reasons for accepting “Bir Derdim Var” and his thoughts about the series with the following words: “We can truly say that ‘Bir Derdim Var’ has a real concern. In fact, every series has its own concern and conflict. But unfortunately, very few touch on such a social issue. We live in a world where adolescent psychology causes disorders in a world order. Young people are exposed to many things, from the social media sphere to environmental influences. Clinics specifically for young people have started to open all over the world. Because there are too many stimuli in the new world order. The changes have caused very serious damage to young people and even to parents. So, doing a job that cares about these things is very meaningful at this time. In addition, the dramatic background of the series is very strong. Watching and playing such stories make us very happy. In this regard, I am very pleased to be a part of this project.”
