Hello guys! We are doing bulk orders for 1st Look magazine.. This is open to all the fans of the main leads! ^^ Please take note of the order details, if you have questions, fire them off in the comments section below.. ^^
[헤럴드POP=홍동희 기자] 2NE1’s DARA plays the title role in a music film.
According to film insiders on the 24, DARA will act her first title role in a music film (title not decided yet) to be cranked in by the end of September. It is her first title role in a Korean movie.
The movie will be a Korean version of “Begin Again”. It is about a story of a girl who works at a convenience store part-time, who seeks out a mysterious melody she hears every night in her dream, and a producer of an Internet broadcasting program who tries to help her find out the music.
DARA acts the role of the girl who is captivated by the mysterious melody to go on a musical journey. Actor Han Jae-seok is known to have been cast as the producer who helps her.
Before her debut as 2NE1, DARA had built an acting career in the Philippines, appearing in a number of films and TV dramas. Plus, she recently acts with KANG SEUNG YOON in web-drama “We Broke Up” (directed by Kim Yong-Wan and written by Jeon Seon-Young) which is aired on NAVER TV CAST.
Notably, as Kim Soo-Jin who worked on the music of drama “White Tower”, “Let’s Eat”, and “Queen SeonDeok” will participated in the film as a music producer, it is drawing a big attention.
Plus, popular webtoonist Mitty (Hong Seung Pyo) takes part in writing the scenario. The film will be cranked in at the end of September, to be released in the first half of next year.
T/N: So basically, YGE posted the English version of the same article from HeraldPop I translated earlier.. XD However, there are a few more notes in an article from Busan Ilbo.
“Sandara Park has a casting offer to be the main female lead for the musical film,” a representative from YG entertainment said on the 24th, “However, the details of the contract have not yet been stipulated, we’re still negotiating.” – Busan Ilbo
YG representative: “We confirm that there is an offer for Sandara Park to play the female lead in a musical movie” – The Fact
YG representative: “It’s true that Sandara Park will act in a musical movie.”
Film official: “The exact date for filming has not yet been set, but it will start either in late September or early October. Sandara Park holds a crucial key to the character’s development.” – MBN
Still hoping for the best!!!! PLEASEEEEEEE WE NEED THIS IN OUR LIVES! XD
I got into “We Broke Up” because of the unique material and setting. Before I even read the script, I was convinced that I would do it because it seemed very fun and really interesting. The more I understood my character’s role in “WBU,” the more I saw similarities with myself. In fact, I was apprehensive that my own personality influenced my role’s character too much because I deliberately did not read the web toon, but the fans of the original material told me that I was in “synch” with the character, so it gave me confidence as well. Of course, this is a drama, so it extended beyond my usual range of emotions, so I tried various kinds of expressions.
When I first learned that I would be acting opposite (Kang)Seungyoon, my initial reaction was “should I give up this film” and I really worried about it a lot. We’re quite close with each other and I always saw him as my cute dongsaeng. But when the filming time came, there were no strange or awkward moments, but we felt that we had committed to our roles already. It was with different eyes that I saw Seungyoon from the very first time we heard the word “shoot.” The 2NE1 members are also close friends and they teased, “what were you thinking then,” but they were very supportive and loving of my work and they said, “we’re very excited,” so it was a very fortunate reaction. I want to try acting in more romantic-comedy in the future. There are many different areas that I want to challenge myself with, but I was originally set in the romantic-comedy genre, so I feel that this is best suited to me. I want to try a “nerd/loser” but cute and lovable character. I also dreamed of having a “loco queen” woman character. Right now, I don’t have much greed in getting into something big or great. If I encounter an opportunity where I can learn and experience a lot, then I’d love to try it.
When I act, rather than being “Sandara” there’s a special feeling of being able to live another person’s life. It’s really thrilling and spectacular feeling, it’s just difficult to put into words. I’m also still attracted to the stage as well. I would like to try and explore there more too.

She likes taking photos the best, but she didn’t take much because she was shy at the exhibition so she felt sad 👉👈 친절한 @daraxxi #DARA #2NE1 #PEACEMINUSONE
