Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha is one of the most popular on-air K-Dramas at the moment, and fans can’t get enough of Shin Min Ah and Kim Seon Ho. Although these two stars are the main focus of this K-Drama, the supporting characters help move the plot along and make significant contributions to the show.
One character, in particular, helped move the plot along by giving Yoon Hye Jin (Shin Min Ah) the push she needed to move to Gongjin and start her own dental clinic.
That character was none other than Dr. Lee, the chief doctor at the dental clinic where Yoon Hye Jin worked at the beginning of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha! Yoon Hye Jin quit her job after Dr. Lee told her to give a patient unnecessary treatment and made it difficult for Yoon Hye Jin to find another job in Seoul, which prompted Yoon Hye Jin to open her own clinic in Gongjin.
If Dr. Lee looked familiar to you, you may have seen the actress who plays her in one of her other K-Dramas.
