Just recently, the nominees for the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards were recently announced. Notably, only Korean movies, K-dramas, programs, and shows, that were released from April 12, 2021, to March 31, 2022, were eligible for the nominations. But a lot of fans are not happy.

READ: The Nominees For The 58th Baeksang Arts Awards For Film & TV Have Been Officially Announced!

The yearly Baeksang Arts Awards rewards Korean films, programs, and K-dramas. The nominations for the upcoming awards ceremony were recently released and many popular K-dramas, actors, and actresses were not nominated, to the surprise of fans. 

Notably, there were a lot of K-dramas that deserved their nominations for "Best K-drama." Yet, fans feel that some were overlooked, but the one K-drama that missed a nomination from the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards that surprised fans the most is tvN's "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha."

Specifically, "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" is a romantic-comedy K-drama that was favored by many and due to this, K-drama fans questioned why the committee snubbed the tvN K-drama, given that it was the most favored K-drama when it was airing. 

"Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" was the highest-rated K-drama while on air, both on local and international Netflix. "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" also ranked as one of Netflix's top Non-English TV shows alongside "Squid Game."

Surprisingly, neither the K-drama nor its cast received any nominations. "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" fans truly feel that lead actors Kim Seon Ho and Shin Min Ah deserved awards for their acting.

But regardless of the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards snub, fans of "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" have decidedly turned their frustrations into positivity, showing support and love for the tvN K-drama's cast and crew.

Instead of dwelling on hate messages, fans went on social media to give loving messages to everyone involved in the K-drama. Due to this, "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" trended on Twitter not long after the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards nominations were released.

The 58th Baeksang Arts Awards ceremony will be broadcasted on the 6th of May at 7:45 PM. KST!
