Sports Chosun: [Interview 1] Sandara Park “‘Only Became an Actress Because 2NE1 Disbanded’ Feelings of Prejudice, Upset”


Actress Sandara Park (33) from girl group 2NE1, gave her sincere thoughts for her first film debut.

In the musical movie, “One Step,” Sandara Park plays a character who has colored hearing. In an interview with Sports Chosuin on the morning of the 30th at Sinsa-dong, Gangnam, Seoul, she revealed recent activities and things behind-the-scenes.

Sandara Park made her debut in the entertainment industry through an audition program, ABS-CBN “Star Circle Quest” in the Philippines. After activities in the Philippines as a singer and actress, she signed an exclusive contract with YG Entertainment in 2007 and started her domestic activities in the country.

In 2009, Sandara Park debuted in 2NE1 along with the other three members. In 2009, she appeared in the SBS drama “The Return of Iljimae.” In 2015, she starred in the web dramas “Doctor Ian,” “We Broke Up,” and “Missing Korea” and also appeared in the KBS2 drama, “Producers.” Recently, she just finished her first movie, “One Step and was casted in the movie “Cheese In the Trap,” cementing her position in the acting industry. With the disbandment of 2NE1, it seems that her activities as a singer has come to a standstill, at the same time that her career as an actress has started in earnest.

Sandara Park said, “Yesterday (the 29th), I couldn’t sleep because of the movie premiere. The 2NE1 members came to watch the movie and they said, ‘Your singing improved a lot!’ and I was really happy for the praise they gave,” she continued, “There wasn’t really a big burden when we were shooting and up until recently about my first movie work. Although this was my first movie here, but when you arrive at the shooting site, all movie shoots have similar systems. I had faith and believed in myself because I worked hard each and every moment. I didn’t feel pressured about this movie being the first where I was the lead female star, but strangely enough, I was totally nervous yesterday.”

She said, “It seems that actors who are former singers are divided into two kinds. There are some who concentrate on acting and stop focusing on being a singer, and then there are people like me who want to challenge themselves and want to get into both singing and acting. More than anything else, I debuted as a singer and I didn’t want to erase that image even as I go into acting. So musical movies or musical drama styles hold a certain attractive charm to me.”

Furthermore, she revealed, “Although 2NE1 disbanded already, I still want to continue being a singer. Recently, I’ve heard a lot of talk around me, asking questions like, ‘Is it because 2NE1 disbanded that you turned into an actress?’ Whenever I hear this kind of talk, I feel really upset. I want to go further into acting, but I also want to continue singing. So this time, I’m revealing that I’m preparing for a solo album.”

Sandara Park, who is preparing for a solo album, revealed, “I think that I’ll be headed into a completely different direction from 2NE1’s music. I had this idea that I should do something that’s different from what I can do if I’m with the members. I want to do interesting and fun music. I want to do bright music. I want to do a cheerful dance song that will make everyone want to ‘put your hands up!'”

According to a statement released by Mountain Movement Story on March 24, former 2NE1 member Sandara Park has been cast in the film adaptation of the popular webtoon “Cheese In The Trap.”
Sandara Park has been consistently acting in various projects like “The Return of Iljimae,” “Dr. Ian,” “Missing Korea,” and “One More Happy Ending.” She will also be making her big screen debut through the film “One Step” this April.

The actress will be taking on the role of Jang Bora, who is the energetic and honest best friend of main character Hong Seol. A source from the production staff stated, “We were very surprised by how well Sandara Park was able to pull of the blunt, refreshingly straightforward character of Jang Bora and decided she was very well-qualified for the role.”

Acting opposite Sandara Park in the role of Kwon Eun Taek will be actor Kim Hyun Jin. Kwon Eun Taek is a handsome and lovable character who has a one-sided crush on Jang Bora and tries to protect and take care of her. Kim Hyun Jin first debuted as a fashion model and will be making his debut as an actor through JTBC’s upcoming drama “Man To Man.” This means that Kim Hyun Jin will be working alongside Park Hae Jin in both “Man to Man” and the film adaptation of “Cheese In The Trap,” as the actor is in a lead role for both projects.

The cast and crew will have their first official meeting together on March 25 and will begin filming in April.

Meanwhile, the main cast for the film adaptation of “Cheese In The Trap” was announced in February; however, some fans of the original webtoon and drama adaptation have expressed disappointment as they believe the casting is not realistic.
