Sandara "Dara" Park joins 2NE1

I've seen on the news last night that
Sandara Park had finally hit it "big" in Korea, and is now being introduced as "Dara Park" of girl group, 2NE1.

Which makes me wonder that it must be difficult to catch a break in Korean showbiz, because it damn well took her about 2 years to get a significant break. It's not even a proper one at that, because she's part of a girl group -- whereas back here in the Philippines, she used to be a very succesful pop-idol-slash-tv-slash-movie star.

So has she really made it in Korea? Here's the video, you be the judge (if you recognise her, that is).

Quite bubblegummy, donchatink?

Good for Sandy, at least she still made it. I wish her goodluck.

Is there any chance that they will perform here in the Philippines?

Btw, thanks for sharing the Friendship Award, I appreciate it.

may i ask if you have done research on sandara?

she trained hard under YG entertainment for 3 years.

YG entertainment won't just accept trainees out of nowhere you know. They are very strict.

And have you seen "Return if Iljimae"? You can see a lot of improvement in her acting.

And see her dance clips in as well. she has improved a lot.


I guess

no problem!

oi, i'm not a hater! i'm just being objective. and didn't i say in the post that "it must've been hard to catch a break in Korea?" please read the whole thing again before you go accusing people. sandara is more than capable of going solo, so i think being in a girl group is limiting for her. i'm not belittling her, i'm just saying that YG or whoever should've given her what she deserves. so read the post again! pfttt.

oo, mas maganda na kasi nag-mature na eh. sayang nasapawan sha nung mga panget.

i think that sandara has grown a lot and has improved so much more in korea. in p.i., she was always so timid and shy and had that innocent good girl image. now, she has matured a lot and i think being in korea really helped her be more comfortable and break out of her shell.

i agree with the other anonymous commenter, her acting has improved as well.

personally, i like the sandara now a whole lot better. i used to be so annoyed by the same old "krung-krung" (or however you spell it) image that she was stuck with in p.i. i love her new look.

and honestly, being in a girl group is a good break in korea. have you heard of big bang? and tvxq? they're really big, and they're in a group. sandara doesn't need to solo to shine in korea. if she wants to solo later on, that's cool. but i'd say being in 2ne1 is a great success for now. they're doing really well so far too and they've only just come out after a lot of training. i'm looking forward to listening to and watching whatever else they have to offer. :]
