“I’m Kim Seon-ho and I portray Hong Du-sik who always shows up to help the village residents of Gongjin whenever they need assistance,” says Kim Seon-ho.

Shin Min-a and Kim Seon-ho are both great actors and have an amazing chemistry with each other. And, as you may have surmised from the Dimple Couple nickname, they both have wonderful dimples when they smile. Shin Min-a is a respected actress and fans are excited to see her star in her first rom-com in a while. And of course Kim Seon-ho’s popularity skyrocketed after winning the hearts of many as Han Jip-yeong in tvN’s “Start-Up“.

The unlikely pair of Hye-jin and Du-sik meet in the seaside village of Gongjin, which Hye-jin had visited as a child with her parents.

Hye-jin is a very successful dentist who makes a lot of money and is used to the good life. She loses her high-paying job, however, for standing up for her principles.

“You can also encounter the romance between the two of us,” Kim Seon-ho says in the video, as they invite their Filipino fans to watch the series.

“Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” is a remake of the 2004 South Korean film “Mr. Handy, Mr. Hong”.

The series is directed by Yu Je-won, who previously worked on “Oh My Ghost” and “Tomorrow, with You“, and written by Shin Ha-eun, who penned “The Crowned Clown”.
