Yes, -ken is more like "while" in English.

x -ken y oldu. Both x and y happen at the same time. Often x starts first, but not always.

Ben kitap okurken annem arkadaşıyla konuşuyordu.
My mum was talking with her friend while I read a book.

The famous song:
Ãœsküdar'a gider iken aldı da bir yağmur
While I was going to Üsküdar it started to rain
