Sandara Park, more popularly known as Dara, was a member of the now-disbanded girl group 2NE1, which recorded hits such as “Ugly” and “I Am the Best,” topping the charts in South Korea and overseas.
Sandara Park is shifting her focus to acting as she tries to evolve after her time spent as part of girl group 2NE1. With the release of her first lead movie role in “One Step” earlier this month, she is showing the world that she can be a chameleon and continue her already-successful career.
Her role in the music drama is that of a girl who loses her hearing after an accident and learns to enjoy music in her own way through color. She sat down with Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily to talk more about changes that have been making her life more diverse.
10Asia: You’ve been very busy for the promotion of your movie. Recently, you went to Busan.
Dara: Everything has been very interesting. I haven’t felt physically tired yet. (laughs)
10Asia: The VIP Premiere became a hot topic because a lot of people came. What did you talk about after the movie screening?
Dara: I was extremely nervous during that day. It was my first time doing something like that alone, and I haven’t tried inviting people like that before as well. I was worried that the movie theater would be empty, but a lot of people came. Someone gave me a bouquet, and it was difficult for me to hold it even with both hands. I really felt so lucky to be have good people around. They told me that everyone has a hard time at the beginning, but advised me to hold on because things will get better gradually.

MC: “You often give people a feeling that you’re kind, not fake and cute. What is the real you?
Dara: “Actually its quite like what you described. I’ve been a celebrity for 8 years and have always been the real me (Also, I can’t purposely create another different personality), the only thing thing that will surprise people is probably my shy and timid personality (laughs)!”
