Prior to the much-awaited release date, the rom-com drama receives an overwhelming response due to the fresh team-up between the lead stars, dubbing Kim Seon Ho and Shin Min Ah as the “dimple couple” due to their striking features.

Following the “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” release, the tvN Saturday and Sunday drama kick off with soaring viewership ratings after scoring an average nationwide rating of 6.8 percent.
With this, it took the first spot as the number one spot across all cable channels during its time slot.
Meanwhile, Good Data Corporation recently cited that Kim Seon Ho and Shin Min Ah dominate the latest weekly rankings for the most buzzworthy actors.
The “Start-Up” star ranked first for the fourth week of August, followed by his co-star, who got the second spot.
