Shin Min Ah, unfortunately, failed to enjoy the success of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha because of Kim Seon Ho.
Before Kim Seon Ho's controversy came to light, Shin Min Ah and the actor were scheduled to appear in press conferences and post-promotional activities for the hit Netflix series. The events would have been the best venue to celebrate the show's success after becoming the top series on its TV time slot.
From having the highest ratings of all time, the positive responses for the series fluctuated because of her co-star.
Fans Console Shin Min Ah Over Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha's Tragic Fate
Shin Min Ah waited for years before her name constantly became a hot topic in the industry again. Although she appeared on several series before Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, it is safe to say that her recent stint overshadowed her roles in the past years.
Unfortunately, the outcome has been short-lived as Kim Seon Ho's controversy blanketed what was supposed to be victorious post-filming days.
In an online Korean community, citizens sympathized with the actress and expressed their regret over what happened to Shin Min Ah and the drama.
"It's like it has become unofficially banned to talk about this drama...They seemed like they could have gotten the 'Best Couple' award at the year-end because their chemistry was so good," the user said, as translated by AllKpop.
Commenters also noted how it was the first time she became that popular since My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho. Although she is not connected to the concern in any way, it was unfortunate she got hit, too.
What Could Have Been For Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha Revealed
Multiple news outlets confirmed that all the press conferences and the scheduled events following the success of Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha had been permanently canceled. Kim Seon Ho also lost his projects and brands after his ex-girlfriend posted the statement.
For a series that became a hit one on Netflix, it was highly likely that the show would have received an installment. Outside the streaming giant, it received high scores on MyDramaList (8.9/10), IMDB (9/10), and AsianWiki (93 percent).
Unfortunately, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha Season 2 became out of sight because of Kim Seon Ho's controversy, and there is no way to fix that – heartbreakingly.
