Critical PerformanceEdit

Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha largely received positive critical feedback, primarily for its simplicity, acting by the cast, beautiful cinematography and setting, and warm and healing vibe. Variety selected Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha as one of "The Best International TV Shows of 2021". At rank sixth, the story’s simplicity and lightheartedness has a refreshing vibe amid the doom and gloom of the pandemic. On 21st December 2021 NME unveiled "The Best Kdrama of 2021", in which the series was ranked eighth. According to them, the show won viewers over with its upfront and straightforward approach in dealing with different dilemmas, without being overly preachy and tacky. Every episode is like a warm embrace from those once-strangers-turned-family, offering comfort and respite whether you’re experiencing the highs or lows of every day. Graham Falk of The Scotsman also included the series on the list of "Best K-drama TV shows on Netflix: The 10 most highly rated Korean dramas on Netflix.[109]

Jan Lee of The Straits Times gave the drama a rating of 4/5 stars, pointing out three reasons to tune in to Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha were idyllic setting, charming leads and colourful supporting characters.[110] Piere Conran from South China Morning Post gave the drama a rating of 3.5/5 stars and said that the hit romcom kept things simple and though it occasionally indulged in some hokey dramatics to strengthen its wafer-thin narrative, it was never in danger of alienating its committed audience, which was hooked to the last.”[111]

S. Poorvaja from The Hindu said, “Ultimately, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is a good example of how K-dramas can get romance right, even as it attempts to provide more nuance and depth into the struggles of its lead characters. For everyone who has had their minds blown by Squid Game, this outing is a worthy representation of what else K-dramas excel at: slice-of-life goodness and wholesome romance of the best kind.”[112] Carolyn Hinds from But Why Tho? A Geek Community, said, “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is a charming and sweet rom-com that’s the perfect palate cleanser if you’ve been watching a lot of heavy dramas and films recently.”[113]

Professor Mo Jong-rin, a professor at Yonsei University Graduate School of International Studies praised the series as fresh. Professor Mo suggest that, "Netflix, the provider, may not have intended it, but the Squid Game and Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha are logically connected. The community of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is an alternative solution to the reality of the Squid Game. I'm sorry to the Squid Game fans, but I honestly want foreigners to remember Korea as a warm country that presented a community alternative to the problem, not a country that criticized reality in a provocative way.[114]

Joel Keller of Decider gave a mixed review, "There’s enough good things about Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, including the seashore scenery and the chemistry between the show’s leads, to recommend it. But it moves so slowly at times, the momentum comes close to grinding to a halt."[115]

One of Pop Culture Critics, Jung Deok-hyeon of PD Journal described Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha as "Soft Healing Drama".[116] Bang Yeon-joo, Pop Culture Critic from PD Journal was more mixed in the review, pointing towards some disappointing points, “The role of men and women did not deviate from the typical composition while portraying the difference in personality between Du-sik and Hye-jin in three dimensions. The episodes when “nosy” Du-sik appeared and saved Hye-jin whenever she was in crisis were a cliche setting that defined Hye-jin only as a "damsel in distress".[117] Further more pointed out that the drama was a box office success despite its plain subject matter and genre. “This is because not only the romance between men and women in Gongjin, a seaside town, but also the story of the townsfolk's affectionate characters was built up one by one, bringing in calming fun.[118]

Columnist Jung Deok-hyeon from Entermedia also shared the same sentiment. Particularly about scene of a house trespasser who appeared out of nowhere to advance the relationship between Yoon Hye-jin and Hong Du-sik as the weakness of the drama. Mentioned the cliché that may have been accepted in the past, were difficult to accept with the changed sensibilities of today. Despite these many weaknesses, the viewer response to was not bad, that’s because the fantasy drawn through the virtual space of Gongjin in this drama was that powerful. In a competitive reality like the die-and-kill Squid Game.[119]


There was also an increase in visitors at the various filming sites of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha. It contributed to a positive economic effect to Pohang tourism.[120] The place in the drama quickly emerged as an essential course in Pohang tourism. It is said that the surrounding commercial district and the local economy have been revived thanks to the drama.[121]

Popularity of the drama also contributed to Yangju tourism. Featured in the 12th episode of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha was Chang Ucchin Museum of Art, founded in 2014 by The Chang Ucchin Foundation in collaboration with the city of Yangju.[122] According to Yangju City, the unique structure of the white museum building and the harmony of the surrounding nature caught the viewers' attention, suggesting that more and more people are looking for information about the museum.[123]

On November 24th, 2021 Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha contents was released through LG U+ XR platform U+DIVe. Studio Dragon used its premium IP to present virtual reality (VR) contents in partnership with Korea Tourism Organization and LG U+. This project started with the goal of promoting Korea' beautiful tourist destinations with drama content as a medium. All content was filmed in VR, and tourist places with unique emotions, were filmed in 3D 180-degree high-definition video to double the vividness. Lee Sang-yi reprised his role as Ji PD and became virtual guide of Gongjin VR tour.[124]
