[2NE1 series interview] Sandara Park, “I have no regrets about giving up on entertainment career in the Philippines”
Sandara Park talks about not having being able to continue on her entertainer career in the Philippines as “no regrets”.
She said in a recent interview, “I was promoting as an entertainer in the Philippines, but I took the bold step and went on as YG trainee. But I have no regrets about not being able to continue my entertainer career in the Philippines.”
“Of course, training as a YG trainee, I have no guarantee for debut. I have no guarantee for success, but because I have dreams to be a Korean entertainer, I worked hard on it.”
Dara has been a reporter, actress and singer in the Philippines. She began to gain interests from Koreans after KBS introduced her in one of the programmes. When she went to Korea for a visit, she was given a basic test from YG Entertainment and then joined as a trainee a month later.
She went over to live in Korea and trained for 3 years before debuting as 2NE1.
After first about joining 2NE1, YG was a little doubtful about it. Because it seems that she has yet to get the hip hop ‘feel’. But Dara worked hart to show satisfaction. She kept listening to hip hop music and dance to hip hop dance.
About the photoshoot that became the topic amongst netizens lately taken in the Philippines, Dara explained about it. The idea of the photoshoot was suggested by one of the seonbae. But the photoshoot concept turned out to be different from what she thought.
Plus back then the atmosphere to the photoshoot was serious, she thought she could not run away from it. And with that she did a ’sexy’ photoshoot.
