The social media accounts of the series were actively used at the time of its publication. Fragments, photos from the series and various information were shared from all accounts.
Although the Aşk series started broadcasting with great hopes, it did not receive the attention it expected and made a silent finale in the period it was broadcast. Despite the different plot and ambitious cast of the series, some television critics at that time attributed the fact that the leading actors Hazal Kaya and Hakan Kurtaş were not adopted as the favorite couple of the screen, despite their excellent performances.
If we ask people, ‘What is the thing money can’t buy?’ Some respond to happiness, some to health, and some to love. Love. He is powerful and valuable above all else. Even from money. No one can buy love, no matter how rich. Is that so?
Azra (Hazal Kaya) and Kerem (Hakan Kurtaş) had only love in their hands. A love that is worth nothing but worthless! They loved each other madly. They met at the Sports Academy and have never parted since then. So, was love enough? Azra can barely take care of her family, Kerem has been looking for a job for a long time. I mean, there was nothing going well in their lives other than love. And everything was going to get worse.
Azra and Kerem will make the audience question their entire lives with the passionate love they experience and the decisions they make.
