Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha Episode 1: Preview
In the very first episode of the series, according to the preview that was released, we will be introduced to the main characters. They are Yoon Hye Jin and Hong Du Sik. Hye Jin is actually a dentist who has given up her career in the big city. She decides to shift to a calm seaside town and offer her knowledge to the people.
However, Hye Jin is not very welcome in the small town. This is because her city way of life does not sit well with the traditional culture of the town. She is frustrated because he rarely has any patients in her clinic. Du Sik, on the other hand, is a local handyman who does all work for the minimum wage. The story in Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is about how these two people, with absolutely opposite characters, fall in love with each other regardless of their differences.
In the preview, we see Hye Jin ask Du Sik for a car. The Korean word for both car and tea is ‘cha’. Du Sik mistakes it for tea and hands her a flask. But Hye Jin gestures at a steering wheel. Du Sik looks frustrated and walks away from her.
