Fans of the Turkish soap opera have shown once again that they are a strong community and support Hande Erçel and Kerem Bürsin.
8 and a half million ‘tweets’. That is what the end of Love is in the air -known in Turkey as You steal my door-. Specific, 8,472,552 messages exchanged by fans of the Turkish soap opera from all over the world and that has led them to break a record: The Most Commented Twitter Scripted TV Episode Ever.
Thus they have managed to beat the almighty Game of Thrones, which had the title so far for the results obtained in the episode ‘The Battle of Winterfell’ (8×03). In the broadcast of the chapter on April 28, 2019, it reached 7.8 million ‘tweets’. An impressive figure, but fans of Love is in the air they have managed to overcome it more than enough.
This was announced Dizilah, a website specialized in Turkish dramas, which also collected how the audience had risen very slightly in the final broadcast (without reaching 1%).
This achievement has been thanks to the efforts of the legion of fans that the series has. When the air date of the last episode came out, fans quickly talked about supporting their favorite actors and joining them at the farewell with a special action. Even the cast members were aware and Sarp Bozkurt, who plays Erdem, was joking with the community by sharing an image of his son laughing: “when I see the hashtag # sonkezsençalkapimi.”
That hashtag Bozkurt is talking about, # sonkezsençalkapimi, is the one that has been used to break the record, which could be translated as “You steal my door for the last time. “Fans from all over the world joined in this initiative, with Turkey, the United States and Spain being the three most active countries. We are not surprised that our country is at the top, since the reception of Eda (Hande Erçel ) and Serkan Bolat (Kerem Bürsin) has been generalized, but it should be noted that the final episode will not be broadcast in Spain until the end of October, approximately.
Since Love is in the air premiered on Telecinco in January 2021, thousands of fans have accompanied the protagonists in their romantic adventure on a weekly basis. They have had to face delays and various changes in broadcast, format and, in the end, also in the chain. This has not helped to maintain large audience data -other series have surpassed it-, but it has not taken away the desire of the ‘fandom’. Hande Erçel and Kerem Bürsin couldn’t have had a better farewell.
