Interview/ Feature: Cosmopolitan Korea Star Interview “Baby Face Representative: Sandara Park!”

Baby Face Representative: Sandara Park!

1

This is the first time we’ve met again since last year. How have you been doing since that time?
Last summer, I was busy shooting a web drama <We Broke Up>

You must have worked hard. Compared to making music, acting as the main female lead must have taken more empahty and emotions. How was the atmosphere during filming?
The drama’s plot revolves around a pair of ex-lovers, who still live in the same house even though they’ve broken up. I really enjoyed the filming though I haven’t experienced it first hand. Although I was a the most senior, the characters were around the same age, so during the shooting we all acted like we were all the same age so there was a bit of confusion between real-life and acting already, but the atmosphere is great. Of course, after the filming we all became close.
2You also made a cameo appearance in the drama <Producers>.
Although the character I played was a total 180 degrees from the characters I usually play, it was really fun to act out a totally different role. Haha. We filmed together with Cha Tae-Hyun and Gong Hyo-Jin sunbae-nims, so I was really nervous.

Is there a special concern that you mind now as an actor that you didn’t as a singer?
There is of course, and that’s my skin. Nowadays, TV picture quality is really great, so unlike a singer, I learned that I just can’t wear a bolder style of make-up. Making my skin look great with natural make-up is a burden.

There is quite a lot of interest in beauty, before you became active as an actress, didn’t you have an interest in it?
For quite a while, I was a beauty model, but I wasn’t all that great with make-up and I didn’t manage my skin well. Before, I only lightly wash heavy make-up off my face before I sleep, but this is a habit I’m trying to fix these days.

Interview: Actress Dara Shares her Honest Thoughts on her “We Broke Up” Experience on 1st Look~ “Acting Inspires a Thrilling and Spectacular Feeling”

Sandara’s Say

0032

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.

Official Photos + Interview Trans: Sandara Park Among “YG Stars Who Participated in “Elle” Charity Campaign” ~ “Sharing Doesn’t Need to be Grandiose. Sesame Sharing is Also Real Sharing, Right?”

YG Stars Who Participated in “Elle” Charity Campaign

Six of YG Entertainment’s artists gathered together in one place with the purpose of lending help to their less fortunate neighbors. A beautiful moment was created and captured.

Park Sandara

It doesn’t necessarily need to be big or larger than life. Sesame seed sharing is still real sharing, right.

It’s hard to believe in comfort whenever times are difficult. Doing a performance requires more than physical stamina that may leave you exhausted, I also need to be charged with the mood and the spirit. In fact, isn’t it more difficult to be a fan than to perform for a couple of hours? Not only jumping around to play, but waving arms, and screaming enthusiasticfally! It always appears as if the fans have an infinite amount of energy and they always show their support and love with the utmost sincerity of their hearts.

I just came back from a vacation, and it was the same taste of something sweet because it was a time when I needed a “real” vacation. I went to the Philippines, and I just came back from my trip yesterday (at the time of the photoshoot) morning. Every minute, every second was precious.

I think that what I can do is to share and give back a bit, nothing grandiose, it’s not necessary for it to be big or larger than life. Like sesame seed sharing, it becomes easier when you get to practice it more. In my case, I like to participate in charity cases as often as I change stage wardrobes. Taking a strange, stray cat on the street and raising it, helping out an animal that I noticed injured on the road and taking it to the hospital to be treated, or even a simple act as going to a performance or giving out tickets to friends who might miss a show. Although they’re nothing special, t’s simple acts like those, which I can do. They might be small, but I think I’m sharing and giving back in my own way.

I think I grew the most in 2014, I dreamed of having a transformation in 2015; 2014 is also the year when our new album was finally released, and we focused our minds and went on a global tour, which just finished recently, for 8 months. The goal for 2015 is “transformation.” As a member of 2NE1, I was always the one in-charge of “shocking transformation,” and recently, I made the first step as an actress (T/N: I think she meant the “Be Funny” skit with Steven Yeun) and I thought, “Can Sandara become calm, quiet, and sincere as well?” and when I heard that voice say that, my desire for transformation took on a different meaning.

Photo/Interview: Dara Looks Cute as a Button for WWD Japan Photoshoot and Interview ~ “Japan is Like Home for 2NE1”

Dara is just cute as a button~! I know she said their concept was tomboy image, but I think she looks quite feminine, and French with her getup. ᄏᄏᄏᄏ She said she wears a lot of Saint Laurent because the clothes fit the “tomboy” image. Please refer to the previous post for more of her fashion likes and statements. ^^ She also said that although it’s only been 3 years, Japan is a place that she thinks of as “home” as well because 2NE1 receives a lot of love and their welcome is always warm too. ^_^
