2NE1’s Dara revealed traits she wants in a guy during a meet and greet, where she also discussed her fans and her beauty secrets.
The event, organized by clothing brand Penshoppe, happened on April 3 at the SM North EDSA Skydome.
When asked by a fan about her ideal guy, Dara said, “Gusto ko ’yung cute. Gusto ko ’yung masayang tao. Mahilig sa fashion. Mahilig sa interests ko.”
She said when she’s in love, “Krung-krung ako. Wala akong pakialam sa mundo.”
Dara also revealed she would date a fan if she likes him.
“Oo naman kung type ko siya at kung meron kaming common interests, why not?”
One fan asked her secret to keeping youthful-looking and she said, “Hanggang ngayon siguro medyo childish pa ako. Ayokong maging mature. Gusto ko lagi akong masaya.’Yan ang secret ko.”
She said the things that make her happy are her friends, delicious food and her cats.
About beauty, Dara said it takes up to more than an hour for her to get ready.
“Siguro mga one hour to one hour and 30 minutes. Maliligo ako medyo matagal-tagal. Blower ako tapos maglalagay ng makeup, blush on at lipstick,” she said.
She advises people that when it comes to fashion, confidence is the key.
“Dapat confident kayo. Just be yourself. Wag nyong isipin yung iisipin ng iba. Kung may gusto ka suotin mo na,” she said.
Philippines and dreams
Dara said she’s open to have a TV show in the Philippines.
“Oo gustong-gusto ko. Sana kung tama lang ang oras. I can come back anytime at gusto kong maging judge. Sasabihin ko sa kanila ’you’re in,’” she said.
When asked by Robi what was her reaction when she found out that Penshoppe was interested in getting her as an endorser, she said, “Sabi ko ‘finally, ayan na.’ Bakit ngayon ka lang? Feeling ko bagay na bagay kami ng Penshoppe.”
Dara always takes time to go to different places in the country. If given the chance to bring her YG Entertainment family to the Philippines, she said she would take them to different spots.
“Unang-una pupunta kami sa Tagaytay, sa Taal Volcano. Next pupunta kami sa Pagsanjan Falls. Sa last day siguro sa Palawan or Boracay,” she said, adding that once went to Boracay but it was for work so she wants to come back there.
Dara said her dream is to have a house in the Philippines.
“Gusto ko pa ng mas malaking bahay na may swimming pool. Kasi sa Korea walang masyadong bahay na may swimming pool kaya sana magkaroon ako ng bahay dito para I can come back anytime,” she said.
When asked what was her most favorite gift that she got from fans, she said, “Marami kasi pero gustong-gusto ko yung cupcakes na binigay nila at mga t-shirts. Sobrang special sa akin yun. Kasi may effort yun di ba kaya sobrang touched ako.”
Dara thanked fans who spent time with her and she hopes that next time, she can come back with 2NE1 for a concert.
“Thank you talaga sa Penshoppe na nagbigay ng chance to meet with my fans. Mag-isa lang ako pero sana next time, kasama ko na yung mga girls (ng 2NE1). Gusto talaga naming bumalik para magconcert so suportahan ninyo kami,” she said.
