The series shared the award with the also Turkish Hidden Truth, distributed by Madd Entertainment.

Destan, ATV’s hit Turkish drama, was crowned Best Serial Drama of the Year during the 17th edition of The Seoul International Drama Awards, held yesterday at the KBS Hall in Seoul.

The prestigious award honors excellence in television drama productions worldwide. In the serial drama category, Destan proved to be the co-winner, alongside Hidden Truth, among the 8 nominees: Aziz (Turkey), Be Reborn (China), Left Right (China), Luoyang (China), The Ideal City (China) and The Last Goodbye to Mama (China)

Destan, a Bozdag Film production, follows the story of Akkuz, a woman who tries to kill Korkut Khan with a bow shot, but with no luck, because the arrow that pierces the Khan’s heart does not take his life and makes Akkuz a slave to her enemy’s son, the disabled prince Batuga. As she fights for her freedom, Akkuz will write a legendary story with Batuga.

Destan, which means “epic” or “legendary” in Turkish, maintains its original title for the international market, after debuting to great success locally last year.
