Obsessed With Kim Seon Ho From “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”? Here Are 6 More K-Dramas He’s In
Aside from his dimples, we’re in love with his fun personality too!
After weeks of teasing K-Drama fans, Netflix’s newest rom-com series “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” finally dropped on the platform on August 28. On its premiere weekend, only two episodes were aired, but Hallyu fans were all over the Internet clamoring for more.
Yes, Kim Seon Ho’s dimples definitely made a grand entrance, but the good stuff doesn’t stop there. Seon Ho’s fans are actually really happy that this series finally encapsulated the actor’s IRL personality (a.k.a. super kulit!).
Woah. This is my sentiment while watching Hometown ChaChaCha, I am seeing ?Kim Seon Ho? real life personality. Maybe that's why he is enjoying filming. https://t.co/uPuuxPtceK— Doom ??¨? (@kdrama_spice) August 31, 2021
“Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” is about Yoon Hye Jin (Shin Min Ah), a dentist living in Seoul, and Hong Du Sik (Kim Seon Ho), a small-town jack-of-all-trades from the seaside village of Gongjin. They meet each other during Hye Jin’s trip to the village, and Du Sik (being the helpful man that he is) constantly keeps Hye Jin out of trouble.
Even though we’re less than halfway through the series, you can definitely see that despite the characters being realistically imperfect, with their own unlikable traits, you still find yourself rooting for them. “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” is truly the calm we need after a stressful work week.
To keep you at bay until next weekend’s episode, here are 6 K-Dramas to binge-watch for your Kim Seon Ho fix!
Good Manager (2017)
Seon Ho’s television debut was in 2017, when he played Sun Sang Tae in the comedy-drama “Good Manager.” The show revolves around Kim Sung Ryong (Namkoong Min), a Certified Public Accountant who once managed (and stole) money for gangs. When he is given a position to manage an accounting department, could it be possible for him to change his ways?
Seon Ho may have a supporting role in this series, but it definitely opened a lot of doors for him for the years to come.

Strongest Deliveryman (2017)
Seon Ho is part of the main cast of the 2017 drama “Strongest Deliveryman,” which aired on the Korean television channel KBS2. He portrayed Oh Jin Kyu, the stubborn son of a rich CEO, who, of course, managed to change for the better.

You Drive Me Crazy (2018)
Alright, ladies, this is where the kilig starts! In 2018, Seon Ho was finally given a lead role alongside Lee Yoo Young in the romantic drama “You Drive Me Crazy.” They played Kim Rae Wan and Han Eun Sung respectively, two best friends whose relationship changed after a steamy night together.
“You Drive Me Crazy” definitely encapsulates the transition of a familiar relationship trying to tiptoe in unfamiliar territory, the best-friends-to-lovers trope, or seeing someone in a brand new light. For those experiencing the same thing, get ready to tweet hashtag #relatable.

100 Days My Prince (2018)
We watched ourselves fall in love with Lee Yul (EXO’s D.O.) and Jung Jae Yoon (Kim Seon Ho) in this 2018 drama. In the show, Seon Ho’s character has “face blindness,” which makes him unable to recognize other people’s faces. The only person he can recognize is the love of his life, Yeon Ho Shim (Nam Ji Hyun). However, his one-sided affection is proof that not all love stories have happy endings.

Catch the Ghost (2019)
Let’s be honest, nobody can ever move on from Seon Ho’s character in Catch The Ghost. How can we if he’s that charming? His portrayal of Go Ji Seok (a police investigator who helps his partner detective in solving cases) gave us a taste of how versatile Seon Ho’s acting can be.
Aside from making us feel kilig, his passion for his craft truly shines through every character that he brings to life.

Second lead syndrome is very real in all 16 episodes of the 2020 romance Start-Up. It centers on Seo Dal-mi (Bae Suzy) and Nam Do-san (Nam Joo Hyuk), two young professionals who dream of making it big in the tech industry. Although these two were endgame, the show’s fans couldn’t let go of Seon Ho’s portrayal of Han Ji-pyeong, a rags-to-riches man who always lends a helping hand.
Start-Up became an avenue for Seon Ho to reach global stardom. It’s where he earned the nickname “Good Boy” from due to his character on the show, and of course, his superb and likable personality too. Because of this K-Drama, Seon Ho won Most Popular Actor at the 2021 Baeksang Arts Awards!
