Valuable messages viewers get from the hit drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha

Besides the currently viral TV series with endless drama, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is an outstanding choice for viewers because it is a drama that is meant to heal our souls.

After broadcasting more than half of its episodes, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha still maintains its popularity when continuously recording high viewership ratings. One of the most important reasons why Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha succeeds in attracting the viewers’ attention must be the messages conveyed in the drama. Let’s check out to see what those messages are!

Interpersonal love

If there are many productions that teach us to be filial, a scene in Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha portrays the message the sons and daughters want to send to their parents from the bottom of their hearts. Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is not only a drama to comfort but also a family drama, for generations to sit together in front of the TV, watching together and getting close.

People who are not related by blood, but when living together in the same village, they see each other as family. Looking at the way Gongjin villagers treat each other, viewers can understand how much love they have for one another. Although each of them has different stories, they all bring a feeling of closeness and affection to the audience.

Hong Du Sik (Kim Seon Ho) is an orphan since childhood, but a kind-hearted man who always helps others, especially grandma Gam Ri who lives alone and is not taken care of by her children. Du Sik is like a grandchild who always adores and helps her out. He truly considers the villagers of Gongjin as his family.

When young people are becoming more and more dependent on technology devices, drama gives us many meaningful messages about family. Every character in Gongjin village is well-portrayed thanks to the cast’s emotional acting and good chemistry. They are adults trying to integrate into modern society. Watching them can make young viewers feel like they are sitting next to their grandmothers, aunts, and uncles whom they haven’t noticed for a while.

Integration

Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is like a manual for people who are not good at communication. This is indeed a disease of the new era, especially the young generation. The drama shows how peace, warmth, and harmony between people truly are. 

The character played by Shin Min Ah represents the youth of today’s generation. Moreover, life in the seaside village and Chief Hong are what we look for and aim for: sociable, fun, friendly personality, always willing to help others. The drama has many scenes where Chief Hong becomes the “savior” to help the dentist Hye Jin better adapt to the elderly society and also help the elderly understand better about young people and modern society.

In today’s modern life, the difference in thinking between generations is inevitable. When people focus on working and making money, they gradually become less open. Social media expands our knowledge but can also worsen our abilities to communicate and reduce the opportunities to communicate, leading to many young people having difficulty integrating into new environments and new people.

Faith in life and optimism

If Squid Game makes people lose trust in each other, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha goes in the opposite direction. The drama conveys a lot of positive messages such as: Even when life gets difficult, there is always Chief Hong, who is always willing to help you.

The dental industry has dark sides, despite unethically ripping money off patients, there are still doctors who have the courage to stand up to protect patients like dentist Hye Jin. Or perhaps you have met your destiny at some point in life and they still remember you.

Besides, there are valuable lessons like never giving up on your dreams and there are times when you feel regret, but each choice leads to a different outcome that might bring unexpectedly positive results.

Both characters deal with people and events around them with an optimistic look, but inside they still endure the hidden pain. Whether you are the dentist Hye Jin who always “puts on a cover” when someone approaches you, or you choose to open your arms to embrace others even when you’re hurting yourself, it is important to understand others with a sympathetic attitude.

Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is a comforting drama worth watching this summer, especially during the pandemic that has greatly affected the mental health of many viewers, who have stayed at home for too long and feel depressed with reality. Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is like a refreshing breeze to help soothe our minds and hearts, bringing a sense of relaxation and relief to every viewer. Make sure to watch the drama today and feel it!
