Hakan’s Character Role:

His job was to build, but Hakan couldn’t build a real home for himself. Being truly loved is different, being sure of the reality of love is different. He could never be sure of his wife’s love, and he never would be. He had a little fling on a business trip, and it brought a whole lot of trouble upon him. But that trouble led him to meet his wife, to see her true face. He wanted everything to be genuine, you know; without lies or deceit. And now it was like that. Merve was real, but because she was real, loving her was impossible now. Would he still be able to do it? If it’s about Hakan, it was possible, of course. Because he had achieved everything he set his mind to since childhood.

Merve’s Character Role:

Merve never knew herself as anyone or anything. But she dedicated herself to being everything to one person. She dedicated her heart to becoming a family. First, she knocked on the door of friendship, tried to see if friendship could turn into family, then she pushed the door of love, tried to build a home with her husband. Being a family is something that can be learned later, but in this pursuit, making friends and enemies was an unexpected war. Still, Merve resisted; after all, resisting was a little toy she had carried in her bag since her orphanage days.

She never built a home, never even dreamed of it. And she didn’t! Love is not something to catch, but something to run away from for her. According to Sahra, love always ends badly.

Kaan’s Character Role:

Kaan, unlike his brother Hakan, is not someone who learns from experience, he only gets tired, doomed to collapse. Kaan is the person who fights back in tough times, not the one who resists. He is romantic, fragile. He bleeds easily, is easily deceived, and sadly, does not heal easily either. Kaan is a bit melancholic, a bit obsessive. He cannot easily reach answers because he does not question, he prefers to trust directly. He is a good person, and that’s why he has never felt completely good about himself, he has never been able to say “I’m good” wholeheartedly.

Ömer’s Character Role:

Ömer is unaware that what he thinks is love is a heavy obsession. Even if he knew, he wouldn’t turn back, he wouldn’t give up. As Rumi said, “Love is not as you think, it’s as much as you burn”; neither of them explains Ömer anymore. He is no longer about burning, but about burning and destroying. And of course, love is a thing that starts where you burn and ends where you burn. Ömer knowingly burns himself, walks into the fire from the beginning.
