Thanks to the efforts and love of Blackjacks, Daralings and Dara Lovers all around the world, not only was #2NE8DARA able to trend but Sandara Park trended as well!!!
#2NE8DARA was able to trend around 10-15 minutes after we started trending and a few minutes after that, Sandara Park followed! What is more awesome is that #2NE8DARA trended for a little over an hour while Sandara Park trended for almost 2 hours! How amazing is that?!?! The love for our amazing Goddess is indeed overwhelming! In our own little way, we hope we were able to bring a smile on Dara’s face!
Before I end this post, I would like to leave a contest entry from unknown_lurker about why she loves Dara!
I don’t know why I kept defending her on 2ne1′s vids, I don’t know why I kept following her every move. I certainly cannot point out any reason as to why I have this urge to be “protective” of her and to defend her from those unforgiving comments that I often see directed to her…heck, I don’t even know why I never fail to check up on news of her and become somewhat pissed at the little lines she had seemingly been given in their songs (which I often than not don’t mind since as someone else put, she’s had the more memorable ones to boot). Even at times, I don’t know why I suddenly feel my heart ache seeing her cry. But I guess, I see myself in her.
She knows she’s not the best, yet she goes on to improve more. Whenever she smiles in pictures or videos, there’s this happy, tingling feeling inside, as if I also become happy myself.
Perhaps I could only come up with one conclusion in all these: “SandaraPark– no matter the titles she hold, in the end, isSandaraPark”. She is human – fragility and all. She has this aura of gentleness – with her ever beaming smile plastered on her face, as if saying “don’t give up and choose to be happy, choose to follow your dreams”. She embodies this “familiar” feeling in her that makes any fan feel comfortable around her (though her awkwardness towards co-artists is really something amusing). It is perhaps this approachableness – optimism and drive – her humanity – that made me feel those things towards her.
She does not know each one of us personally, yet she’s always one to reach out to us. She may never remember the faces or the names but seeing her give her all on their performances and show a portion of her life to us makes me appreciate her all the more.
When all the glitz and glamour fade or wherever place life takes her, she’ll remain loved. Honestly, as lots of people here pointed out, in a simple answer to the query “why do you love dara?”, I’ll answer what Denis Cooverman replied to Beth Cooper:
“What’s not to love?”
