K-pop star Sandara Park, member of girl group 2NE1, maintains that despite becoming famous in South Korea, she’s still the same person.

Feeling ko wala pang nagbago (I feel that I have not changed). I’m still the same Sandara,” she told Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino when she appeared on “Abunda & Aquino Tonight,” Wednesday.

Sandara arrived in the country earlier in the day. She immediately went to appear on TV programs to promote 2NE1′s “All or Nothing” world tour in Manila, which will be held on Saturday, May 17, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

On the show, Sandara was asked how she felt that she’s now rich, famous and voted most beautiful in Korea in 2013.

Siyempre sobrang saya ko. Nakaka-touch ako sa mga fans,” she said.

She added that there’s no secret to her beauty.

Ay wala po. Siguro love ng mga fans. Masayahin (There’s no secret. Maybe it’s the love from the fans. [Being] cheerful.

She also related that when she misses the Philippines, “Nanonood po ako ng mga DVDs ng Tagalog movies (I watch DVDs of Tagalog movies).

The latest film she’s seen is “This Guy’s In Love With You Mare,” which stars Vice Ganda, Luis Manzano and Toni Gonzaga.

When the topic of training that K-pop stars go through was brought up, Sandara noted that she, too, had taken part in a few.

Meron kaming voice lessons, dance lessons, naggi-gym kami. Meron din kaming acting lessons. Marami talaga,” Sandara shared.

She said she trained for two years while others would go through four to six years. Sandara added that she didn’t receive any salary during her two-year training. “Nahirapan po ako (It was hard),” she said, smiling.

On the topic of her wealth, she simply said, “Hindi pa ako masyadong mayaman (I’m not yet rich).”

Sandara may be living in South Korea now, but she said she still maintains her friendship with her fellow “Star Circle Quest” contestants.

Marami pa akong friends like yung ‘SCQ’ friends ko dati. Meron akong bagong friend katulad ni Ryan Bang,” she said.

Abunda noted Sandara transformation from being shy during her “SCQ” days the powerful young lady she is now. He added that Sandara’s image today is “palaban (fighter).”

Sa stage lang ‘yun kasi ganun yung music namin [It’s only on stage because of our music],” she said.

Speaking briefly about her brother Thunder – who is a member of the K-pop boy band MBLAQ – Sandara noted, “He’s fine.”

However, she found herself having to comment on a photo that surfaced online showing Justin Bieber giving her a peck on the cheek.

Pumunta siya sa Korea para mag-concert. Wala lang. (He went to Korea to hold a concert. It was nothing),” she said.

As for Lee Min ho, with whom she’s had a kissing scene for a commercial, Sandara was quick to deny that the actor had courted her, insisting it was just work.

Her appearance on the talk show made the hashtags “#DaraOnAATonight” and “#WelcomeHomeDara” trend on Twitter.

Sandara Park: ‘I’m still the same Sandara’

051514-sandara_main

Isang mahiyain na Sandara Park pa rin ang dumalaw sa Aquino and Abunda Tonight. Mukhang walang nagbago kay “Dara,” kahit na obserbasyon ng host na si Boy Abunda ay mukhang mas palaban na siya ngayon. Ayon kay Dara, “Pero feeling ko wala pong nagbago, I’m still the same Sandara.” Sastage lang siya diumano “mas palaban kasi ganun yung music namin.”
Hindi maikakaila na malayo na ang nilakbay ni Sandara. Isa na siyang miyembro ng 2NE1, isang sikat na all girls K-Pop group sa Korea. Ayon pa kay Boy at kay Kris Aquino, Sandara is voted most beautiful in Korea at nang pumunta si Kris sa Korea puro posters ni Sandara ang nakikita niya. Sa tanong kung gaano na siya kayaman sinabi ni Dara na, “hindi pa ako masyadong mayaman.” Kung paano naman niya hina-handle ang popularity at success sagot naman ni Dara ay, “Sanay ako na ganito ako since ten yearsako.”
Bago marating ni Sandara ang tugatog na kasikatan, ginamit muna niya ang naipon sa Pilipinas. Nai-kwento ni Dara ang dalawang taong rigorous training kung saan tinuturuan silang kumanta, sumayaw, umarte, pati pag-gym at kung anu-ano pa para maging isang K-Pop star. Ayon pa sa kanya, hindi sila binibigyan ng allowance habang nasa training kung kaya nahirapan siya sa dalawang taon na ito. Ngayon din diumano ay kabilang na sa isang sikat na boy band sa Korea ang kanyang kapatid, na noong artista siya sa Pilipinas ay lagi niyang kasa-kasama.
Pero ano nga ba ang beauty secret ni Sandara? Wala naman daw sikreto ang kagandahan niya kundi ang mga “fans at pagiging masayahin.” Ngunit, pinaglalaanan daw ni Dara ng two to three hours a day ang kanyang K-Pop look. Suot niya ang paborito niyang big black hat at may suot din siyang magnet earrings na kinatuwaan ni Kris at Boy na isukat.
“Sobrang na-miss ko kayo,” ang sabi ni Sandara. At ayon sa kanya, marami pa rin siyang friends sa Pilipinas katulad ng mga kaibigan siya sa Star Circle Quest at may mga bago rin siyang kaibigan katulad ni Ryan Bang na ayon sa K-Pop star ay “sobrang bait.” Nangako diumano si Ryan na iti-treat siya ng pagkain sa Pilipinas at pagkatapos ng Aquino and Abunda Tonight e ilalabas siya nito. At kapag name-miss ni Dara ang Pinas ay nanonood siya ng mga tagalog DVD at ang recent na napanood niya ay This Guy’s In Love With You Pare.
Wala pa ring boyfriend si Dara pero sana nga raw ay magkaroon na. Hindi rin daw nanliligaw sa kanya si Lee Min Ho at trabaho lang nang nakahalikan niya ito sa isang commercial. At noong hinalikan naman daw siya ni Justin Bieber e nagpa-picture lang siya sa dito.
May new album ang grupo ni Dara at marami rin diumano silang surpresa sa kanilang concert sa MOA sa May 17.
