The Secret is Out! Sandara Park Joins #TeamPenshoppe
Read on as the Korean pop star answers our questions in Filipino!

interview

Last month, fans were thrilled to find out that Sandara Park was in Manila for a brief period – thanks to her Instagram account where the Korean pop star chronicled her activities. Little did they kow that she was here to to do a photo shoot with Penshoppe to join Mario Maurer, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Sean O’Pry as the new face of the brand.

Style Bible visited her during the said photo shoot shot by Cliff Watts (He shot Cara’s and Sean’s Penshoppe campaigns, too, and flew in from New York for Sandara’s.) Wearing a knit vest, a white button-down with Peter Pan collar, skinny jeans, a fedora hat and a pair of oxfords, she gamely answered our questions – in fluent Filipino, by the way. Read on!

STYLE BIBLE: Tell me about your outfit today.

DARA PARK: This look is very Sandara Park – from head to toe. Lahat basic items lang in black and white. Meron pants kanina from the photo shoot na super gusto ko. It’s very hip, very Dara from 2NE1. (This look is very Sandara Park – from head to toe. All basic items in black and white. There are pants from the photoshoot earlier that I super like. It’s very hip, very Dara from 2NE1.)

SB: Do you have a uniform at the moment?

DP: Yes, meron! Usually, t-shirt and jeans, flats and a hat. Ito yung lagi kong sinusuot since two years ago. I have a lot of fedora hats. Ang dami ko din jeans. Favorite ko yung skinny jeans. And gusto ko ngayon yung rolled up jeans. (Yes, there is! Usually, t-shirt and jeans, flats and a hat. This is what I often wear, since two years ago. I have a lot of fedora hats. I also have a lot of jeans. Skinny jeans are my favorite. Now, I’m into rolled up jeans.)

SB: When it comes to dressing up, what’s your favorite season?

DP: Winter, definitely. Mas madaming choices. Pag summer you can only choose to wear one or two kasi mainit. Sa winter, pwede mag-layer. (Winter, definitely. There are more choices. During summer, you can only choose to wear one or two because it’s so hot. During winter, layering is possible)

SB: Is there any item in your closet that you couldn’t seem to let go of – even if it’s old and worn out already?

DP: Yung mga sneakers ko. Kahit di ko na sinusuot yung iba parang di ko kaya itapon. Madumi na pero nandyan pa din sila. I just like seeing them there. They’re like my babies. I have a room full of sneakers only, separate pa from the clothes. Every time I see something cute, I buy. I couldn’t stop myself. (My sneakers. Even if I don’t wear the others, I still don’t throw them out. Some are dirty already, but they’re still there. I just like seeing them there. They’re like my babies. I have a room full of sneakers only, separate from the clothes. Every time I see something cute, I buy. I couldn’t stop myself.)

SB: How about high heels?

DP: Actually, I don’t wear heels. Only pag may event. Sneakers ako palagi. All kinds of sneakers. (Actually, I don’t wear heels. Only if there are events. I swear sneakers all the time. All kinds of sneakers. )

SB: How big is your closet?

DP: Super big. I keep adding closets every year but kulang pa din. Pag wala ako magawa, I just shop. So somebody has to stop me! I love shopping! (Super big. I keep adding closets every year, but they’re still not enough. If I’m not doing anything, I just shop. So somebody has to stop me! I love shopping! )

SB: How do you organize your clothes?

DP: By style. Pero after a while, hindi na siya organized. (Laughs) Ang hirap mag-organize ng damit, lalo na pag ang dami-dami na. I keep adding and adding clothes. Yung iba binibigay ko sa friends ko but I usually keep my clothes for sentimental reasons. Madaming memories yon. (By style. But after a while, they aren’t organized anymore. (Laughs) It’s so hard to organize clothes, especially if there are so many already. I keep adding and adding clothes. I give some away to my friends, but I usually keep my clothes for sentimental reasons. So many memories.)

SB: You tour a lot, you travel a lot – what do you usually wear on the plane?

DP: Depends, pag malapit lang, pag one or two hours lang, I wear anything – kahit heels, skirt. Pero pag malayo, jogging pants. I prefer loose tops – parang boyfriend shirts. (Depends, if it’s just nearby, say one or two hours, I wear anything – even heels, skirt. But if it’s already far off, jogging pants. I prefer loose tops – like boyfriend shirts.)

SB: Are you a light packer?

DP: Hindi! (Laughs) Like this time, I brought three luggages – yung pinakamalaki na luggages. Kaya lagi ako may excess baggage. For example, if I travel for a week, yung dinadala ko for one month. So ang dami ko talagang dalang clothes, shoes, hats, sunglasses. I have my shampoo, body scrub, lotion, hair blower, hair iron – lahat. (No! (Laughs) Like this time, I brought three luggages – the biggest luggages. That’s why I always have excess baggage. For example, if I travel for a week, I bring enough for one month. So I really bring a lot of clothes, shoes, hats, sunglasses. I have my shampoo, body scrub, lotion, hair blower, hair iron – everything.)

SB: How many outfit changes do you do on a regular day?

DP: Usually, three. Depends on where I’m going. Like yesterday, I went to Greenbelt, eh mainit, so nagpalit ako. (Usually, three. Depends on where I’m going. Like yesterday, I went to Greenbelt and it was really hot, so I changed.)

SB: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction on stage?

DP: Many times. Pero di naman scandalous. Minsan yung shoes ko natatanggal kasi yung dance steps namin sobrang wild. Minsan natatanggal yung heels, but I just pretend nothing happened. I continue dancing. (Many times. But nothing scandalous. Sometimes, my shoes fly off because our dance steps were really wild. Sometimes, the heels fall off, but I just pretend nothing happened. I continue dancing.)

SB: What’s your fashion motto?

DP: Just be yourself and be confident.

Meet Penshoppe’s Newest Urban Rebel: Sandara Park

Known for its fresh take on casual wear, Penshoppe sizzles this season as they reveal their newest face: Sandara Park.

Penshoppe-Urban-Rebels-Sandara-Park-4

Starting out as a local favorite, the former teen star set the roof on fire as she returned to South Korea and debuted as one of the members of K-Pop group 2NE1 in 2009. But her music career wasn’t the only thing that rocketed. As the group takes a break to concentrate on their solo careers, Sandara has been seen starring on web dramas and modeling for editorials. Recently posing for publications like, DAZED Korea, W Korea, ELLE Korea, and Vogue Girl Korea, she also proves her great interest in fashion industry.

Recently spotted at the 2015 Fall/Winter Seoul Fashion Week with her brother Park Sang Hyun, Sandara stood out as she switched from casual to hip-hop ensembles in between the Munsoo Kwon and Beyond Closet shows, showing off her savvy fashion sense. Now, Sandara flashes her fresh and quirky style in her first Penshoppe campaign.

Catering to anyone, Urban Rebels consists of utilitarian and Japanese street art-inspired tees, pullovers, joggers, biker jeans, and neoprene skirts and pants. There couldn’t be anyone more fitting to embody their latest collection than the Asian Superstar herself.

As Sandara takes a quick break from her shoot for the campaign, we sat down with Penshoppe’s newest ambassador to have a quick chat:

With your music career with 2NE1 on hold, what have you been focusing on lately?

This year, I’ve been acting for a web drama. I’ve recently ventured into being an actress.

You’ve just landed a leading role for the Korean version of Begin Again. How have you been preparing for this? Do you feel any pressure about it?

Yeah, of course there’s pressure, but it’s the good kind of pressure that gets me excited. Actually, it’s not really a Korean version of Begin Again. The story revolves around music, but we have our own rendition of it. It’s different.

Going into fashion, your Instagram feed shows that you’ve been gracing the pages of fashion magazines, and just recently, Vogue Girl Korea. How do you feel about modeling for the editorials?

I love it ‘cause I didn’t really do that much shoots before, so I kinda got hungry for photo shoots. For Vogue Girl, we shot it in Hawaii and I enjoyed it so much. It showed a different side of Sandara Park. ‘Cause before I used to always have that hip-hop vibe, and for that editorial, I kinda went a bit dainty, just like a princess.

Is there anyone you look up to in the fashion industry?

Actually, it changes I can’t pick one. I just Google and see anyone who’s cool.

How would you describe your personal style?

Probably unique. I love something cute and unique that doesn’t follow any trend.

Who or what influences your personal style?

Before, it was my stylist. He’s really weird and unique in a good way, so he influenced me a lot.

Was it more on hip-hop or street wear?

Yes, it’s street wear. It’s like he found a new Sandara Park, and I was really happy and excited about it. The way I dress right now is all influenced by him.

What’s your go-to outfit? Like on your day-off wear?

I usually wear something casual like jeans, T-shirts, and sometimes a cap or a beanie.

Penshoppe-Urban-Rebels-Sandara-Park-1 (1)

So how do you feel about being the newest face of Penshoppe?

I’m so happy about it ‘cause I’ve always liked Penshoppe ever since I was in high school. I’ve always dreamt of seeing myself on a billboard in EDSA, so I was super excited.

What makes it a perfect fit for your lifestyle and personality?

It really fits my personality ‘cause they have different styles. It’s like everything I like is there.

Amidst your grueling schedule, do you still get time to relax?

Yeah, of course! When I’m in Korea and don’t have work, I’m always at home relaxing with my pets.

What do you do during your down time? So when you’re home, what do you get to do?

I usually watch Koreanovela.

Even the ones you’re in?

Yeah! Of course I watch myself. I’m actually waiting for my next drama.

Where do you see yourself in the future?

Before I used to dream about my future. I’ll be like this and that after 5 years, but now, I don’t know anymore. I’m just really excited about the future.

How do you want the world to know you as?

As Sandara Park, I want people to remember me as krung-krung. It has so many good meanings like crazy and weird but cute and unique, so I really love the word krung-krung. It’s my nickname in the Philippines. They call me the “Pambansang Krung-Krung ng Pilipinas,” and I like it when people call me that.

What are you looking forward to most in the next couple of months?

I’m gonna concentrate on my movie, it’s my first movie in Korea. I don’t know what the title is yet, they’re still thinking about it, but I’m gonna start shooting soon. So I’m excited yet nervous at the same time.

Is there still a side of Dara that the world has yet to have seen?

Maybe the Bitchy Dara. I wanna show that side of myself on a drama or movie.

News: Inquirer~ “Sandara Park’s Secret is Out! 2NE1’s Sandara Park Made the Big Announcement: she is Penshoppe’s Newest Ambassador”

Sandara Park’s secret is out

2NE1’s Sandara Park made the big announcement: she is Penshoppe’s newest ambassador

Penshoppe-Urban-Rebels-Sandara-Park-2-660x990

2NE1’s Sandara Park made the big announcement: she is Penshoppe’s newest ambassador.

Penshoppe posted a teaser yesterday:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

And confirmed the news by posting this:

Last month, as fans followed Sandara’s fun Philippine adventures on Instagram, eating at Jollibee multiple times, challenging her “We Broke Up” co-stars Jang Ki-yong and Lee Beom-gyoo to eat balut, watching Big Bang, ziplining, visiting Tagaytay and Taal and hitting the beach with her Korean friends, they didn’t know she was also in the Philippines for one big reason: her Penshoppe campaign shoot.

Inquirer Super was at the shoot last month at Golden ABC’s Studio 1155 and Gallery.

Photographer Cliff Watts, who also shot Sean O’Pry and Cara Delevingne’s #UrbanRebels campaign for Penshoppe, flew in from New York to shoot Dara. “The shoot was great. It’s my first time to shoot her and it’s my first time in the Philippines. We shot her in the studio and on the rooftop,” said Cliff, who enjoys working with Penshoppe. “Fantastic. I love the people, the product, I feel like it’s a family and I love that.”

“The shoot turned out amazing. I was blown away by how Dara moves in front of the camera. She was effortless, really good. The clothes look amazing on her,” said Jeff Bascon, Penshoppe’s brand director. “Dara made it really easy for everyone. She’s really charming. Her sense of style is really strong. After working with her and seeing her in action, I’m definitely a bigger fan now.

Dara loved the clothes she wore so much that she sweetly asked if she can bring them with her to Korea.

Everyone at the shoot marveled at how down-to-earth the K-Pop superstar was.

Alice Liu, Golden ABC’s executive vice president for retail brands said, “She’s a very sweet girl who was very easy to work with and we look forward to working more with her and her wonderful team also.

sandara2

After the shoot, as we sat down with Dara for an interview, we realized that despite leaving behind her showbiz career in the Philippines to conquer Korea eight years ago, she’s still the same Jollibee-loving, Tagalog-speaking Sandara Park that so many Filipinos adore.

The day before the shoot, she relaxed by going to Greenbelt. “Pumunta ako sa arcade, nag-basketball and meron din palang videoke doon so kumanta ako ng 2NE1 songs. Narinig daw sa labas, nakakahiya.” (I went to the arcade, I played basketball, and since there was a videoke machine there, I also sang 2NE1 songs. I was told that I could be heard even from the outside, it was so embarrassing.” 

Sandara says her Filipino fans are one reason she said yes to Penshoppe. “Hanggang ngayon hindi niyo pa rin ako nakakalimutan kaya nandito ako ngayon with Penshoppe.” (Until now, you guys have never forgotten me, so that’s why I’m here now with Penshoppe)

And the other reason? “Talagang sinusuot ko yung Penshoppe since high school days pa lang.” ( really wear Penshoppe, ever since my high school days)

Back in the Philippines 11 years ago, I worked with the director of Human Theater, Im Seong Goo, to shoot my debut, and now I was invited by him to watch #MiraclePiano. I watched Ye Eun on TV, that’s why I know her, but it was nice to meet her in real life~!!! I think it’s a really beautiful movie. It made me feel good and happy, and it cheered me up ^.^ Seeing Ye Eun being brave and innocent made me think that I should learn and work harder a lot. I will always support Ye Eun who is gifted with her precious ability!!! In the future too, fighting!!!

11년전 필리핀에서 한달동안 고생하시면서 인간극장을 촬영해주신 임성구 감독님의 초대로 감독님의 영화데뷔작인 #기적의피아노 를 보고왔어요. 예은이는 티비로 봐서 알고있었는데 이렇게 실제로 만나게되서 너무 반가웠어요~!!! 정말 아름다운 영화를 한편 본거같아요. 보는 내내 기분이 좋아지고 행복해지는 아주 좋은 기운을 받고온거같아요 ^.^ 해맑은 모습으로 씩씩하게 지내는 예은이를 보면서 저도 많이 배우고 더 열심히 해야겠다는 생각이 들었어요. 정말 소중한 재능을 타고난 예은이를 항상 응원할게요!!! 앞으로도 화이팅!!! 😃👏👏👏
