South Korean star and former Kapamilya talent Sandara Park surprised her fans once again, this time with her latest pictorial for an international magazine.
On Tuesday, September 28, the former 2NE1 member shared photos from her shoot with Dazed Korea, which featured her in its October 2021 issue.
The magazine also posted snaps from the pictorial on its official Instagram page. In the photos taken by photographer Kim Yeongjun, Sandara is seen wearing pieces by French luxury fashion house Dior and British fashion label JW Anderson as she posed for the camera.
This isn't the first time that Sandara posed for Dazed Korea. The 36-year-old Korean pop star was also featured by the magazine in its summer issue back in 2013.
Last May, Sandara made headlines after it was announced that she had left YG Entertainment, her talent agency for more than 17 years.
The actress-singer first signed with the agency in 2004 and eventually debuted as a member of 2NE1—alongside CL, Park Bom, and Minzy—in 2009. The girl group later disbanded in 2016.
In a previous post, Sandara said she made the decision to leave her long-time agency with a "very heavy heart", but also expressed her excitement to begin a new chapter in her career.
"Saying goodbye is the most difficult thing to do. Nevertheless, I have made this big decision for the dream that I want as well as for those who have been waiting for me to achieve that dream," she said.
Four months later, Sandara signed with a new agency—ABYSS Company, which also handles the careers of her fellow K-pop superstars Sunmi and BamBam of the boy group GOT7.
Sandara made her showbiz breakthrough in the Philippines when she joined Star Circle Quest in 2004. She later ventured into acting, and starred in a string of series and films, including Krystala, Bcuz of U, Can This Be Love, D' Lucky Ones, and Super Noypi.
However, in 2007, Sandara left the country for South Korea to pursue a showbiz career there.
After 2NE1 disbanded, Sandara remained active in the South Korean entertainment scene. Most recently, she was seen on the talk show Video Star and in the dance competition Stage K. She was also part of the KBS Joy program Celebeauty Season 3.
