The premise of the series, from Wikipedia:
Akarsu portrays a wealthy young man, Tarık Tekelioğlu, who goes to Italy for his education but rather becomes the most successful rally driver. His father, the owner of a bank, finds out the truth about his son and Tarık is forced to come back and stay in Turkey in order to work and pay off his education debts to his father.
Thus, with a false surname, Tarık applies for a job as driver for Naz, whose father needs a loan for his business which he receives from the bank of Tarık's father - with the help of Tarık who provides Naz's father with inside knowledge of his father's preferences and dislikes also resulting in both men becoming friends. In the process, Tarık gets the job as driver and he and Naz fall in love with each other, however, neither wants to be the first to admit such to the other.
BACKGROUND: "YALANCI YARIM":
"YALANCI YARIM," starring BARIS AKARSU and Merve Sevi, along with a stellar cast of famous actors/actresses, began sometime after BARIS won the "Akademi Türkiye - 2004" singing competition (similar to "American Idol").
"YALANCI YARIM" was a summer comedy show, but the audience response was so great that the producers continued it as a full regular show in the fall, which filmed until 2007, when BARIS AKARSU died tragically from severe auto-accident injuries on the film location, Bodrum, July 4, 2007.
Throughout the series, BARIS AKARSU as "TARIK TEKELIOGLU" . . . i.e., "TARIK the chauffeur," would sing, sometimes as a ploy to calm down his employer's temperamental (but beautiful) daughter, NAZ (Merve Sevi).
