Yesterday, they aired the final episode of the K Drama, one must acknowledge the fact that Hometown Cha Cha Cha has been one great stressbuster drama. It would make you happy, gladden your heart and somewhat bring peace to your mind.
Lack of complications, fulfillment in life and moreover dynamic and touching human relations are explored in the drama beautifully.
Hye Jin – The Female Lead
A successful and elite dentist from Seoul named as Hye Jin argues with her boss as she suggests over treatment of a patient. She ends up protesting against it and eventually leaves her job.
She then goes back to the sea side town where her mother used to take her. As the story progresses, the dentist leaves behind the thoughts of applying for a job and opens a dental clinic in the same town.
The small town life makes it easy as well as difficult for her as she too habituated with the luxuries of a metro city.
How she tries to befriend the town people, how they end up loving the doctor who they all thought to be a little ‘too proud’ and selfish is a journey to adore.
Also this journey is relatable for Indians as there are several cultural similarities that an Indian viewer would stumble upon.
Du -Sik – The Male Lead
This man is interesting, admirable and of course a Jack of all trades kind of guy.
When Hye Jin meets him, she goes in complete confusion so as to determine what in the world this man can’t do? He can do everything! He is an engineer from the Seoul National University. A brilliant mind. Yet he stays in this small hometown and does things for the people of the town.
He can be a coffee maker, a real estate broker, a fish market auctioneer, an interior designer, a wall painter, a departmental store handler, a mechanic, a cook in a restaurant – You name it and you will find him doing it for you.
Moreover, the magic about this man that would attract you the most is his caring attitude. He is the one who takes care of the entire elderly population in the town, if you are in a problem just make one call to him and he, your problem solver, would run to you. He is like an angel who thinks about all and does everything he can for them. We can call him the Santa Claus of the town. It’s just that this Santa doesn’t only tend to children but also grandmas and grandpas.
But the mystery that the makers kept up until the 15th episode was why despite his brilliance and capabilities, Du Sik was so unwilling to do a full time job or why he was in this small town doing all sorts of part time jobs whereas he had all the ability and qualification to become a billionaire corporate man in Seoul?
The tragedy in his life that broke him was kept hidden for a long time. We will not reveal it here because if you still didn’t watch the show, you must watch it to find out.

Whether it’s about losing someone dear to them or about broken relationships or about being lonely – Each character has a struggle of their own.

All of them despite their own issues try to remain happy and also make others happy. This innate quality of the neighbours in the town make the entire neighbourhood a close knitted family.
There are single parents struggling to bring up their children, there are divorced couples, there are elderly parents left behind by their children to live all alone, there are people without any family – Yet not once these issues would take you the darker way.
