The Korean drama Hometown Cha Cha Cha has been stealing attention before its premiere. tvN also shared some leaks that made fans even more impatient to see the chemistry of Kim Seon Ho and Shin Min Ah.
Hometown Cha Cha Cha is a remake of the romantic film ‘Mr. Hong’ which aired in 2004. Even though it still uses the same character name, the storyline of the Korean drama Hometown Cha Cha Cha is different from the original film.
Synopsis of the Korean drama Hometown Cha Cha Cha follows the story of Yoon Hye Jin (played by Shin Min Ah) who works as a dentist. He has a real personality and decides to move to the seaside village of Gongjin because of a problem.
There, Yoon Hye Jin met Hong Doo Shik (played by Kim Seon Ho) and became curious about her figure. He is called ‘Head Hong’ by the locals and is unemployed. Despite that, Doo Shik always seems busy.
Meanwhile, the film ‘Mr. Hong’ tells the story of Hong Doo Shik as a man who has many jobs, including a Chinese restaurant courier, a convenience store clerk, and a cafe singer. He then met Yoon Hye Jin who moved to the village.
