Remember the space Yoon Hye-jin (Shin Min Ah) leased in Gongjin to start her dental clinic? It’s now open to the public as a restaurant and cafe!
Tourists who visited the original filming site in Pohang shared the renovations on their social media pages. Based on what we can glean from their posts, it seems the original exterior design used for Hye-jin's clinic is still in tact. The same goes for the inside of the cafe, which still boasts of the the name “Yoon Dental Clinic” written on its doors.
Prior to this change, the building used in the K-drama housed a scuba diving equipment shop in the first floor, while the now cafe on the second floor was a welfare center for fishermen.
Get a closer look at the cafe in photos taken by IG user bada_smell_ below.
The clinic-turned-cafe is located in 429 Cheongjin-ri, Cheongha-myeon, Buk-gu, Pohang-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do.
Described as a healing drama, Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha follows Yoon Hye-jin, a brilliant city dentist who goes through a major life crisis after she gets fired from her job. Hoping for a new start, she establishes her own dental clinic in the remote seaside village of Gongjin. Here, she meets and eventually develops a fondness for the locale’s resident jack of all trades, Hong Du-sik.
The tvN drama enjoyed a successful run throughout its 16 episodes, and is now one of the highest rating K-dramas on cable TV.
