It’s inevitable. When you’re interviewing Sandara Park, you will end up switching to Tagalog. It shouldn’t be a surprise, really, because long before she became 2NE1’s Dara, she was the Philippines’ “Pambansang Krung Krung,” who first stole hearts with her tearful Star Circle Quest audition.
Penshoppe flew Sandara to Manila last week for a series of events.

Korean celebrity Sandara Park, who was recently here to meet with her Filipino fans, said Manila “still feels like home.”
“I don’t go out that much in Korea, that’s why I don’t feel like I’m a superstar. But here, I already feel the love at the airport. I’m thrilled to hear people call out my name,” Sandara said in a mix of Filipino and English when asked to compare her fans here to those in Korea and in other parts of the globe.

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.
