10 K-Dramas To Check Out Next After ‘Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha’

Since Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha first premiered on Netflix back in August, it’s already become a lot of fans’ source of comfort and kilig during the weekends especially since there’s just so much to love about it.

And now that the drama is ending, many of its fans are probably looking for new K-dramas that are just as good and as ~healing~ as HomeCha.
