Asi (Turkish pronunciation: [aːˈsiː]) is a Turkish television drama series. The series originally aired from July 21, 2007 to June 15, 2009. It ran for two seasons on Kanal D.


The series is set in a rural part of Antakya and revolves around the lives of Asi Kozcuoğlu (Tuba Büyüküstün), and Demir Doğan (Murat Yıldırım), and their respective families.

For three generations, the Kozcuoğlu family owns a prominent plantation in Antakya. Keeping this farm alive is their foremost goal. The owner, Ihsan Kozcuoğlu (Çetin Tekindor), and his daughter, Asi, work and live for their land. Years ago, Demir's mother, Emine (Elif Sümbül Sert), and aunt, Süheyla (Tülay Günal), were workers on the Kozcuoğlu farm until his mother drowned herself with her two kids Demir and Melek in the nearby river called Asi /Orontes (The modern name ‘Asi` means ("rebel"), because the river flows from the south to the north unlike the rest of the rivers in the region.). Her children survived, Demir and Melek, and they went on to live with their aunt Süheyla. Demir returns to his hometown as a rich businessman. Still embittered about the circumstances that drove his mother to her death, he meets Asi and is immediately drawn to her. However, the lives of the Kozcuoğlu family and Demir's family bear more connections from the past that constantly seem to get in between. Family secrets start unravel after Süheyla returns to be with her nephew Demir. Murder, death, affairs, and a love child is discovered as everyone's life is turned upside down when decade old secrets come to surface. Demir and Asi's love is tested to the limits as they struggle to hold to their affection while their world crumbles around them.
