Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4 recap:
Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4 starts with a radiant Hye-jin and Du-sik meeting each other over and over. Wearing her beautiful and newly found heels again, she wonders in front of Mi-seon why Du-sik isn’t around one morning making Mi-seon curious.
One day, a new patient comes to visit Hye-jin and is overly polite with both the women. Later, Nam-sook invites Hye-jin to the storeowner’s meeting. Although she is initially uninterested, she jumps at the opportunity to meet Du-sik. She seems to be a little sad initially when Du-sik isn’t there at the meeting, but perks up when he comes over. Anyway, it obviously isn’t Hye-jin’s scene as everyone talks a lot and she gets bullied by Ju-ri.
As she pretends to be drunk to go home early, she is shocked to learn that Du-sik will be singing in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4. She can’t help but catch a peek of her crush singing a romantic song and looking oh-so-handsome. However, when he catches her eye, she quickly lies back down.
After the performance is over in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4, Hye-jin continues to act as if she’s drunk and Du-sik carries her home… until about halfway when he tells her to drop the act. He calls her a sack of rice and she huffs off calling him a jerk. Du-sik, however, is amused.
As Gam-ri comes over to get a checkup, that mystery guy comes over again. He looks creepy as heck and Mi-seon seems to agree. Gam-ri, too, says that she remembers him from somewhere. Just then, Du-sik also comes over to deliver her coffee and Hye-jin is surprised by his sudden kindness. That evening, she brings over the photo of her and a singer that Ju-ri likes. ju-ri loses her mind seeing the picture and is over the moon!
The two fangirl over JUNE while Du-sik is completely astonished by how similar Hye-jin and Ju-ri are. The next day in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4, as every haggles Du-sik to help them with something or the other, he refuses and then goes off surfing. Fans of Kim Sun-ho are going to enjoy this a lot.
Later, the mysterious man once again is back and Mi-seon looks even more uncomfortable. It’s no wonder, though, because the moment Hye-jin leaves, he looks at Mi-seon creepily. Well, Hye-jin sees it with her own eyes – he’s a f-ing sexual predator who was groping Mi-seon. Hye-jin is furious and tries to throw him out of the clinic. However, the brazen a-hole calls the police and tells them that he is being framed for sexual assault. Hye-jin is infuriated.
As the guy starts to insult Mi-seon, Hye-jin kicks him in the face and as he’s about to hit her, she slaps him. Just then, Du-sik flies in and kicks him again and then promptly faints after enquiring whether Hye-jin is ok. Seeing this, Hye-jin too faints. The police arrive just then. It’s absolutely hilarious and disgusting at the same time, especially when the a-hole tries to justify his actions calling Mi-seon a gold-digger and saying that there is no proof.
Meanwhile, in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4, Hye-jin and Du-sik are put behind bars for assault. When Mi-seon visits Hye-jin in jail, they cry and apologise to each other and although it’s a heartfelt moment, it’s funny because they hold each other through the bars although the door to the cell is open.
Anyway, they find the a-hole’s phone where he had apparently taken many problematic photos of Mi-seon and others. Du-sik beats the shit out of him in the hospital and then the guy is arrested. When Du-sik tells Hye-jin later about the guy’s incarceration, she decides to repay him for his kindness. She tries to leave wine and fruits in front of his home but is caught by Du-sik. She decides to spend the evening with him in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4 if only to try the wine that is hard to get.
As the two sit down to taste the wine, Du-sik is annoyed by Hye-jin’s annoying unnecessary knowledge of wine. Hye-jin makes a fool of herself and he is amused and disgusted. It’s hilarious to see the two, especially Hye-jin fumbling with the wine.
The two talk to each other, a little tipsy from finishing the entire bottle. In a rare vulnerable moment for Hye-jin, she talks about her mother and why she decided to move to Gongjin. After she is finished and almost in tears, she starts complaining about her face being too hot. Du-sik puts his cold hands on her cheeks and they look at each other with… love? Ok, I am getting a bit ahead of myself here!
Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 4 is one that gives us hope about a possible romance between the leads. I am here for it, since the preview for the next episode promises them together in bed, but maybe not rated R, you know? Plus, there’s some nice conflict as well, although I am a little sad that Hye-jin didn’t get enough credit for standing up against the molester.
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is streaming on Netflix.
