How will Hometown ChaChaCha rate?
Before episodes of Hometown ChaChaCha can stream on Netflix, they must first be broadcast on the South Korean cable network tvN. Due to the fact that the series has the coveted Saturday and Sunday night timeslot, it has an excellent chance of performing well in the ratings.
So far, cable dramas that air episodes between Friday and Sunday are the highest-rated. Meanwhile, few dramas that aired midweek have ever hit the top 50. However, to make it into the top ten, Hometown ChaChaCha will need to outperform fellow tvN drama, 100 Days My Prince, which currently has a high rating of 14.412 percent.
