Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7 recap:
Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7 starts off with Du-sik, Hye-jin and Seong-hyeon realizing that they all know each other. Of course, now that the cat is out of the bag, Seong-hyeon goes off to meet everyone in town and it’s a celebratory moment with everyone losing their minds. Du-sik and Hye-jin discuss how they know Seong-hyeon and a lot of things become clear to him.
As Hye-jin leaves after being haggled by people asking her whether there’s something going on between them. Both Seong-hyeon and Du-sik follow her out and then go to Du-sik’s place to get a drink and catch up. The three have a fun and interesting night, albeit a bit awkward since Du-sik constantly tries to annoy Hye-jin.
While the three converse, it is apparent to Du-sik that Seong-hyeon and Hye-jin know each other very well and he knows things about her that Du-sik doesn’t. That’s apparent, but Du-sik feels out of place and is unable to get into their conversation. Later, Seong-hyeon asks Du-sik to become his team’s guide and when the latter is apprehensive, he challenges Du-sik to a game to make it fair.
As they get drunker, the games just don’t seem to end. In the end, Seong-hyeon passes out with clothespins on his face and Du-sik is nowhere to be seen. Well, Hye-jin does find him… sleeping outside in the cold! They all then fall asleep beside each other.
The next day in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7, as she tries to make a swift exit, she is caught by Seong-hyeon and Du-sik later asks him to join for ramyeon. Nam-sook sees the entire thing and obviously thinks that something is going on between them!
Also, can I just add, the Kopiko ads are going off the rails in the series. Korean shows usually do feature Kopiko, but holy shit. This one is totally overdoing it.
Du-sik becomes Seong-hyeon’s team’s guide in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7 and they check out the different places and end up at Gam-ri’s place for the shoot. However, Gam-ri refuses to help them and annoyed, they go off to brainstorm. As Seong-hyeon gets hungry, they go to Hwajeong Raw Fish Restaurant and are shocked to eat a mind-blowing dish. Seong-hyeon and Du-sik are so absolutely extra that it’s both comical and extremely embarrassing.
They meet Hye-jin next in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7 and as Seong-hyeon and Hye-jin talk, Du-sik seems just a tiny bit jealous of their relationship and starts to annoy Hye-jin. After they leave though, Seong-hyeon’s amazing mood pushes him to go shopping and he buys a ton of stuff for Gam-ri and pampers with different things. She looks so adorable wearing the hat!
Later, Du-sik makes Hye-jin join him in cleaning Gam-ri’s blankets. It’s a cute moment where she rams into Du-sik and remembers something from when Du-sik had passed out the last they got drunk. As Romantic Sunday plays, it seems like Hye-jin and Du-sik are really enjoying spending time with each other. I mean, it’s a known thing, but it’s still super cute to watch.
Anyway, as they finish him. Seong-hyeon sees them and brings in JUNE and Hye-jin is shocked to see him in front of her. Ju-ri, too, loses her mind when she hears about this. It’s so funny to see Hye-jin fangirling for him! Seong-hyeon offers to do the dishes and Gam-ri seems to be warming up to his presence around her.
The next day in Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7, Seong-hyeon leaves something to eat for Hye-jin on her doorstep. She’s happy about it and Du-sik and Seong-hyeon start to go over the rules of using Gam-ri’s home. They discuss the plans and clauses for using the house and while talking, Seong-hyeon asks Du-sik whether Hye-jin is seeing anyone. Du-sik is clearly jealous.
The last scene is a flashback of when Du-sik was drunk, the thing that Hye-jin remembered while cleaning blankets – he asked her to not go while crying. More precisely, he asked her to not leave him. Hye-jin promises that she’s not going anywhere.
Hometown Cha Cha Cha episode 7 is sweet, heartwarming and funny. It hints at the impending love triangle and it’s going to be a tough choice for Hye-jin since both of the men are so nice. However, what I didn’t like is the casual violence between Hwa-jeong and Yeong-guk where she just slaps him and it’s treated like it’s funny for some reason. Her overly protective and controlling tendencies aren’t cute either.
Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is streaming on Netflix.
