The ending of Hometown Cha Cha Cha Episode 5 is not only one of the best endings of the entire Korean romantic comedy drama series, it also features three of the best songs on its soundtrack played back-to-back.
Including CHEEZE’s ‘My Romance‘, that sweet, mellow song that was heard as Hye-jin remembers kissing Chief Hong when she was at his house and they were both drunk.
A kiss that, it seems, Chief Hong returned.
CHEEZE’s ‘My Romance’ was written and recorded specifically for the Hometown Cha Cha Cha soundtrack, and eventually made it to #154 on the South Korean Circle Digital Chart — a chart that ranks the top 200 singles in the country that week.
It is one of several songs CHEEZE, aka Im Hye-kyung (aka 임혜경 in Korean), has released for Korean dramas.
Including songs on the soundtracks of Suspicious Partner, Rich Man, Encounter and It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.
And yes, I have listened to several of them and, while they are all lovely, I have to admit CHEEZE’s ‘My Romance’, which shows up on several episodes of Hometown Cha Cha Cha and not just at the end of Episode 5, is her best.
