2NE1 member and Star Circle Quest alumna Sandara Park admitted that she has been missing the Philippines. Sandara, who flew to Korea in 2007 to pursue a career in music, had since rarely visited the Philippines because of her busy schedule.
“Na-miss ko kayo sobra, ang init dito! Ang init ng weather, ang init ng pag-welcome niyo sa amin. Maraming salamat,” she said during the open presscon of 2NE1 in the country. “The Pambansang Krung-Krung ng Pilipinas” quipped, “Sana bumalik kami dito, balik kami dito every week.”
Among the many hit songs that the Korean girl group had produced since they released an EP (Extended Play) in 2009, Dara shared the song that she considers as her favorite. “Lahat ng songs gusto ko pero isa sa favorite ko ay ‘Good To You’ dahil nakaka-relate ako sa lyrics,” she relayed.
2NE1 broke into the Korean music industry upon releasing their single “Fire.” According to Dara (Sandara’s Korean screen name), she really liked her styling in “Fire” (Space Version) music video. “Favorite ko ‘yung concept ko sa ‘Fire’ dahil nakapang-coconut tree hair ako, ‘di ba?” she said.
After doing a cameo appearance recently in a popular Korean series, Dara said she hopes to star in her own series. “Don sa koreanovela na ‘yun ako ay isang co-artist na dumaan sa red carpet, ‘yun lang, sobrang short lang. Sana next time may koreanovela na ako.”
2NE1’s All Or Nothing concert in the Mall of Asia Arena last May 17 was a massive success. Sandara extended her thanks via Twitter to those who supported their concert.
“Maraming salamat sa lahat ng friends ko na pumunta sa concert namin!!! Sorry hindi tayo nagkita pero nakita ko kayo from the stage!!! :),” Sandara tweeted on her Twitter account @krungy21.
She added, “Sobrang happy talaga ako ngayon! Grabe!Boom panes talaga!!!And syempre sa lahat ng blackjacks na laging nandyan para samin!Mahal namin kayo!”
She also thanked their surprise guests during the concert. “Special thanks to our surprise guests for i love u performance tonight! #Ram from #gforce #JasonAbalos #JorossGamboa #SamMilby love u guys!” she tweeted.
