Kdramas and Netflix are on a roll. Hometown Cha Cha Cha aired on Saturday replacing “The Devil Judge”. Hometown Cha Cha Cha is available on Netflix. The fans are excited because Shin Min A and Kim Sun Ho are the main cast of Hometown Cha Cha Cha Kdrama. Hometown Cha Cha Cha is the remake of the 2004 Korean Movie Mr Hong.
It’s interesting to note that Cha in Korean means either tea or car. In one of the scenes, Shin Min A’s character asks Kim Sun Ho if he has a cha (car). He misunderstands and offers her tea (cha) that he was carrying with him.
Hometown Cha Cha Cha tells the story of Yoon Hye Jin played by Shin Min A and Hong Du Shik played by Kim Sun Ho. Yoon Hye Jin is a dentist and works with an ethical mindset. One of the patients, who turns out to be her neighbour visits her clinic to get a consultation. Yoon Hye Jin gave her an honest consultation which tripped her boss who is used to scamming and overtreating patients. Her boss steals her patient and this doesn’t sit well will Hye Jin. She has an outburst, says her mind and quits on the spot. Enraged by Hye Jin’s resignation, her boss threatens that she will be unable to work in this industry anymore.
On top of that, a drunk Hye Jin posts the incident in the group community with drunk but good intentions. This backfires and people see her as malicious and a whistleblower, which makes it even more difficult to get a job. While reminiscing her mom, Hye Jin ends up visiting Gong Jin and experiences a weird and struggling time in the seaside village. Her car breaks down, she’s out of cash, loses her expensive shoe and ends up meeting Hong Du Shik played by Kim Sun Ho. Hong Du Shik or Chief Hong is well renowned in the village. Hye Jin encounters Chief Hong in every troubling scenario and somehow he ends up helping or providing her with a solution.
Gongjin doesn’t have a dental clinic. Tempted by one of the local residents and seeing the difficulty of people commuting to getting access to a dentist, Hye Jin decides to open a dental clinic in the village. The intention is motivated by a threatening call by her former boss who asks her to grovel and beg for her previous job. Enraged by the situation, Hye Jin turns back to the village and firmly decides to open a clinic. Hye ends up meeting chief Hong and becomes curious about him. Chief Hong is a master of all trades and is well known and respected by everyone in the village.
