I must be missing a romantic bone in my body because I feel absolutely nothing while watching the leads in Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha and the cells in Yumi’s Cells honestly DISGUST me (their design and the whole Minion-like vibe ughhhhh) but am super into the slick, beautifully shot, delightfully creepy Hometown, even though it has me quite confused at the moment (I just wish it would stop making all the victims women).

Although, the cells would make me react that way even if I was in a lovey-dovey mood so that show is just clearly not for me lmao.

If Hometown tears these two apart permanently I will have WORDS!!!!

    problem with hometown is they gave away the entire plot in ep 1

    creepy doesn’t cut it because the storyline is crystal clear

    Another cult drama on lines of save me type

    I really like Hometown’s creepy vibe. I think it especially works for dramas set in the past.

      And now I read about the mess with the writer and don’t know that I want to continue.

        Just did a quick Naver search. Shit! Now I don’t know if I wanna continue, either.

        Changing his name is such a sneaky move. Before it aired I looked up the writer out of curiosity and didn’t see any previous works so thought it was a rookie. 🙄 A bit disappointed in the director tbh for taking the script and playing along… I really like his work too.

        This also makes the high number of female victims in the show so far more gross to me. Ugh.

          Wait, I didn’t know that the writer was shady. What did he do? I can’t read Korean so idk where to find the information.

            Basically, the writer is actually a director who changed his name after disappearing 3 years ago after admitting to sexual assault and being suspended by the Korean Director’s Association

            @mindy thanks for the information. Ugh that’s absolutely disgusting. I really don’t want to continue watching, and therefore, supporting the show. It’s a shame because I like all the actors involved. But I refuse to support predators.

            
.maybe it’s time to break out the illegal sites? Might be a solution, but I still feel scummy.

          Sneaky is right. Like I don’t believe he reflected on his actions when he changed his name and didn’t respond to disciplinary action.

          The director is disappointing too with his there was an amicable apology so it’s fine. The victim doesn’t seem to agree.

    Lol I’ve made 2 attempts to watch the CeÄșls, but they are not grabbing me. Looks like I’ll be compelled to illegally watch Hometown. 😏
