Because of Yoon Hye Jin’s interesting personality, Shin Min Ah decided to take on this role, which brought an iconic “dimple couple”.
Hometown Cha Cha Cha is currently one of the most popular Korean dramas. The rom-com series is well-loved thanks to its healing storylines, making the audiences feel comforted by the heartwarming stories of the residents of the seaside village Gongjin. The success of Hometown Cha Cha Cha has taken Kim Seon Ho’s acting career to another level and marked an impressive TV comeback of Shin Min Ah.
The dimple couple has completely won the hearts of many viewers with their matching appearances, equally good acting, and heartfelt chemistry. These factors have helped Hometown Cha Cha Cha retain its charm until the last episodes without causing the viewers to feel bored or disappointed.
As for Shin Min Ah, it seems like she was predestined to be cast in the female lead role of Hometown Cha Cha Cha. There are three reasons why the gorgeous actress accepted the offer to star in Hometown Cha Cha Cha: the script, the seaside village setting and her character Yoon Hye Jin.
“Hometown Cha Cha Cha” is a success with both its setting and plot
While Shin Min Ah was looking forward to appearing in a romantic, heartwarming and healing drama, the script of “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” was sent to her. Another coincidence is that the drama is set in the seaside village of Pohang in Korea. She is originally a fan of the sea, so when she knew the filming would take place in a seaside village, Shin Min Ah became even more interested.
The more Shin Min Ah read the script, the more impressed she became with the character Yoon Hye Jin because there are many similarities between the actress herself and the character she portrays. In the drama, Hye Jin is a perfectionist and devoted to her career. An evidence is that when Hye Jin does not agree with her boss and senior dentist’s unethical way of working, she is not hesitant to leave the city to go back to her hometown to open her own dental clinic.
Although Hye Jin sometimes appears to be quite arrogant and principled, having many strict requirements in everything, that’s just the surface. Hye Jin on the inside is still a bit clumsy and cute. She doesn’t even realize this characteristic of hers. However, Hye Jin is also quick to acknowledge and correct her mistakes. Shin Min Ah admits she is similar to Hye Jin in this, except that she is not as brave and straightforward as Hye Jin.
During filming, Shin Min Ah has also become closer to Kim Seon Ho and Lee Sang Yi. She and her two male co-stars always joke around and have fun with each other behind the scenes. Therefore, in the drama, whether it’s Hye Jin with Doo Sik (Kim Seon Ho), or Hye Jin with Sung Hyun (Lee Sang Yi), or Doo Sik – Sung Hyun, all duos show off their natural and convincing chemistry that make the viewers unable to take their eyes off the screen.
Currently, Hometown Cha Cha Cha is approaching the finale. After everything that they have gone through together, Hye Jin and Doo Sik have become more empathetic and understanding towards each other. At the same time, Doo Sik’s past has begun to be unveiled.
