I just cannot get enough of K drama’s and was super excited to watch Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha on Netflix not only because the name seemed peculiar but also because it stars Shin-Min-a in the lead alongside Kim-Seon-ho. I absolutely love these two actors and was quite excited to watch them together for the first time.
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is an extremely wholesome, feel good and relaxing series. It will make you smile after a long hectic day, and will definitely give you hope and good vibes. Highly recommended.
The story revolves around Yoon Hye-jin (Shin Min-a) a dentist in her early thirties, living in the fast paced city of Seoul in South Korea.

This series is not only about the main leads but it also revolves around the life’s of the villagers. Every character is layered and relatable and will instantly draw us in making us go through various emotions from being heartbroken to making us grin ear to ear. The village and its people will seem our own in this slice of life drama. Definitely a must watch for its positive vibes.
