“I tried my best. Ginawa ko ang lahat para makuha ang gusto ko. Masipag ang mga Koreans kaya nothing is impossible,” Sandara Park said. The Korean star is in the country as one of the guests of the Korea Tourism Organization’s Korea Night: K-Beauty and Fun on Monday.
MANILA, Philippines – Sandara Park, also known as Dara of the Korea girl group2NE1, wants to show “other sides” of herself this year.
“Ang goal ko for 2015, I want to show other sides of Sandara Park. Hindi lang sa 2NE1,” (“My goal for 2014 is to show other sides of Sandara Park. Not just with 2NE1.”) she said during a press conference on Monday.
She added, “Pati siguro actress Sandara or DJ. Bagong challenge, gusto kong i-try.” (“I also want to try actress Sandara or DJ. New challenge, so I want to try”)
Sandara, who spoke to the press at the sidelines of the Korea Night: K-Beauty and Fun event of the Korean Tourism Organization, said she is currently working on a web series with Korean actor Kim Young-kwang.
The web series, which she described as a “healing drama,” will serve as her acting debut in Korea.
“Mahirap din pala. Kasi paano ko ito ie-express as (my character) and not as Sandara Park,” (“It’s also hard. Because I need to express my character, and not Sandara Park,”) she said of the project. “Sobrang excited na ako.” (“I’m so excited.”)
Could this mean she’s open to doing a project in the Philippines again? Sandara started her entertainment career in the Philippines as an actress and singer in 2004 before leaving for Korea in 2007.
“I would love to do it,” she said. “Lagi ko namang sinasabi na gusto ko magka-movie sa Philippines ulit.” (I’ve always said that I want to do a movie in the Philippines again.”

Sandara also said would want to work with John Lloyd Cruz. A number of fans expressed their desire to see Sandara and John Lloyd in a movie project after the two were seen in a photographs together during the wedding of fellow ABS-CBN artist Joross Gamboa.
When asked about it in an interview with Nerisa Almo of Philippine Entertainment Portal last year, John Lloyd said: “Puwede. Pero tumatanggap ba siya ng trabaho rito? Bakit hindi, that’s something different, that’s something new.” (“It’s possible. But I don’t know if she can accept jobs here? But why not, that’s something different, that’s something new.”)
“E di wow. Papa John Lloyd!” Sandara exclaimed when the idea of working with the ABS-CBN actor was brought up.
She added, “Gustong gusto ko yan kasi talagang I really love his movies and his acting. Nakaka-in love yung mata niya kapag umaarte kaya sobrang excited ako pag mangyari.” (“I would really, really love that because I really love his movies and his acting. You can just fall in love with his eyes when he acts, so I’m going to be rally excited if this happens.”)
“Kaya lang, nagwo-worry ako kasi di ba mature na yung mga movies n’ya, yung mga series? Pero ako, feeling ko bata pa ako. Ano kaya ang magandang story?”(“It’s just that, I’m a bit worried, because aren’t his recent movies and series mature? But me, I feel that I’m still young. What would make a nice story?”)
“Star Cinema, hintayin ko yun,” Sandara quipped. (“Star Cinema, I’ll wait for that.”)
Sandara was one of the guests of the Korea Tourism Organization’s Korea Night: K-Beauty and Fun, an event that aims to promote Korea as a medical tourism destination.
The K-Pop star said she would use the word “possible” to describe Korea.
“Kasi (because), nothing is impossible in Korea,” she said.
Sandara added: “Kasi di ba, I tried my best. Ginawa ko ang lahat para makuha ang gusto ko. Masipag ang mga Koreans kaya nothing is impossible.” (“It’s because I tried my best. I gave my everything to get I wanted. Koreans are really diligent, so nothing is impossible.)
