Family: Originally from Trabzon and Azeri. Her father was an electrical engineer, and her parents were separated when she was nine years old. She has an older sister and a twin brother. “My father is an engineer but also a person with an artistic spirit who makes short films. As a solid listener, he is immersed in all genres of music! There is also Paco de Lucia in its archive and Zeki Müren. My mother is a soloist from Selahattin Altınbaş and Ziya Taşkent. Even his teachers once said, “A new Muazzez Abacı is being born” for him. My father used to advocate that “a person’s education in a family ends at the age of six.” When he was 12 years old, he put in front of us the book “Basic Principles of Philosophy”; ‘Take a look when bored. But when you do not understand, do not come to me, solve it yourself “.
Childhood years: Due to the separation of her parents, she always grew up longing for a father. “I’ve always had a lack of father. I was not saying this, but now I am. I’m not sad or angry, but that took me down. I especially expected to be owned, protected and approved in my relationships with the opposite sex. However, man owns himself. My favorite asset in life is my mother. He worked hard for us after we broke up with my father. ”
Educational life: He completed primary school in Private Efdal Kindergarten and Primary School. He graduated from Secondary School Istek Foundation Acıbadem High School. In 2001, he graduated from Pera Fine Arts High School. In the same year, he won the Istanbul Technical University Turkish Music State Conservatory and continued his music education by taking violin and singing lessons. ”
Music career: She was recognized with the song “Evlerinin Önü Boyalı Direk” in the video they uploaded to the video sharing website YouTube with his twin brother Berk. This video has been watched 10 million 800 thousand times as of May 2008. The clips they shot after making an album were watched 6 million 850 thousand times. There are a total of 10 songs on their first album, Kısmet. In addition to the songs bearing the signature of his twin brother Berk Gürman, they also blended the folk songs with flamenco and put them in the album. By ending the Öykü and Berk group in 2010, the two brothers decided to continue their way alone.
The first step to acting: She started his television adventure with the character ‘Ceylan’ in the series ‘Urfalıyam Ezelden’.
With which project did she shine? She drew attention with the character “Asiye Kaleli”, which he portrayed in the “Lifeline” series.
Personality traits: Sympathetic, friendly, funny, hardworking, disciplined. “For example, I am obsessed with order. I have a great sense of responsibility since my childhood. It could be from him. Although we were twins with Berk, I was always like a sister. I feel the same towards my mom and dad. I have a motherly spirit. I have an effort to please everyone. ”
Mindset: She does not prefer to return to the past and live, nor is she very interested in temporary love and fame. “After my existence, I also experienced the absence. I was sad inside myself. But I was always asked, “Who’s what what happened, why are you not around with this voice?” I do not cringe at anyone, I do not engage in dialogue with someone in a self-interested way. I could have pushed some doors, I could watch, but I have never been in such a point of jingle or jackal. Because I’m not like that. I can’t, it looks very fake too. ”
What kind of person is she on set? Sometimes she sings on sets. “The other day the crew was tense and tired. Me too. I blew a song out loud. Everyone’s mood changed for a moment. I do it from time to time. I get closer to my friends, I sing a little song. But I do not take it too long. Because I shouldn’t get out of my character on set. ”
What does she pay attention to when choosing songs? She looks at whether she is suitable for her voice in the first place. She doesn’t like songs that don’t have vocal melodies. “They sound like children’s songs to me. Upward tunes I love songs with that licorice part. But I pay more attention to the words. Because singing means telling a story. My name is Öykü, I am a narrator. Therefore, I have to tell people that song properly. ”

Her view of love: “True love is the conscience of a person. A person who has a fear of God does not upset the person he loves. The love of the person who can share you in his / her heart is real. This love is real if the person you are walking with can stand next to you like a man for no good and with good intentions. It hurts that the most promises made in a relationship are not kept. To put someone into anticipation and not keeping their promises is also deceiving. Not if you don’t tell a kid, “I’ll buy you apple candy,” and buy it. I live with that child’s purity and honesty. ”
Her view of life: She does not like labels and prejudices. “A person who can’t live on a budget doesn’t like labels either. I don’t like to be formalistic about people, not just labels. I think one should read all kinds of criticism. It can be positive or negative, but the criticism is good. For me, the mouth that makes the criticism is important. Posture, attitude, life, profession. If it comes out of someone’s mouth in a solid place, I consider it. I do not take into account the person who does it ignorantly, unconsciously, just to shake it. People should look at themselves before criticizing others. ”
Her view of business life: Acting has always been a dream, but the series ‘Urfalıyam Ezelden’ lasted only 10 episodes. “Acting is a lot of work, but there are many parameters for a drama to be successful. There were also offers about acting, but they were always singing roles. In the casino, the singer is someone’s lover but a singer. I was thinking that I had a different talent for this job and that I should color it with a different character. The ‘Asiye’ character was a great option for this. I’m a mimic queen. I also have a talent, but I have to show it with such a character; Let people discover my funny, funny, fast-talking, hyperactive side. There is no way to show this while singing. I don’t think I’ve been able to show people exactly what I am since the time of the ‘Evlerinin Önü Boyalı Direk’. “Asiye” opened that door for me. ”
Future Dream: She really wants to have a child. “The important thing is to wish and ask for the “good” of everything. ”
What can not tolerate? She cannot tolerate hypocritical, hypocritical and self-interested people who put material ahead of spirituality. “I cannot tolerate when someone is being wronged. Prejudice is what I’m most angry about in life. You are not God. Nobody has the right to criticize anyone unfairly. ”
Which movie was she affected by? She loves all the movies of Almodovar and Kim Ki-duk.
Favorite song? Ajda Pekkan’s song “Her Yaşın Ayrı Bir Güzelliği Var”.
What types of books does she read? She likes to read story and poetry books.
What does she spend money on? She has no brand obsession, but she is a bit fussy about bags, shoes and sunglasses. “My shoes must be fine. I am most sensitive to shoes and perfumes. ”
