“Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” Producers Beg Viewers To Stop Visiting The Houses Where Drama Was Filmed
The producers of tvN’s “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” have asked viewers to refrain from visiting the houses in which the drama was filmed.
On October 5, the “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” production team released an official statement explaining that the characters’ houses seen in the drama belong to real people and were merely leased for the duration of filming.
As the real-life owners of these homes are currently struggling with visitors constantly trying to enter their houses, the team asked viewers to stay out of these residences and suggested visiting other landmarks in the city of Pohang (where the hit drama was filmed) instead.
The full statement released by tvN is as follows:
Hello. This is the “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” production team.
We would like to thank our viewers for giving us so much love, and we would like to make one request regarding visits to our filming location.
Hye Jin’s house, Doo Shik’s house, Gam Ri’s house, and Cho Hee’s house in the drama are spaces that we leased for filming purposes for the duration of our shoot, and at the moment, their owners are currently residing in those homes.
They helped our drama out with good intentions, but they are currently suffering disturbances to their everyday lives because of visitors. For the reason described above, when you visit our filming location, we ask that you refrain from entering these houses.
Out of consideration for people who want to experience the afterglow of the drama, the city of Pohang will be keeping the squid statue at Cheongha Market and the boat at Sabang Memorial Park even after the end of filming.
Once again, we thank you for giving your love to “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha.”
