Article: YoungStar hung out with K-pop superstars Dara and Nam Joo Hyuk!


We hung out with K-pop superstars Dara and Nam Joo Hyuk

We asked them about childhood memories at this year’s Penshoppe FanCon.


Here’s a fun, totally random fact to kick off your Buwan ng Wika celebration: international K-pop superstar Dara traces her motivations to become a singer back to a high school Linggo ng Wika performance.

Dara, or Sandara Park to all you OG Star Circle Quest fans, revealed that interesting tidbit during her press conference for this year’s Penshoppe FanCon with Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo star Nam Joo Hyuk. During the Q&A portion, I asked both Joo Hyuk and Dara to recall their most On Brand™ childhood memory and they both delivered (with the latter albeit slightly embarrassed).


Dara answered first by reminding us of her Filipino roots, telling the press “When I was young, I was the super super shy type. I remember, kumanta ako noong Linggo ng Wika during my high school days, and that’s the day that changed my life.” She continued by saying that her friends praised her singing abilities after the performance, and that’s when she got the self-confidence that jumpstarted her career as a singer.

Joo Hyuk, meanwhile, sheepishly explained that growing up near the beach in Busan made him the chill person he is today, especially because he and his friends would just hang out and swim all the time.

Their answers told me that 1) Dara truly is our Pambansang Krung Krung and 2) Joo Hyuk is the shy type who seems to be down for anything; the kind that’d make you uwu out loud just because. 


Those personalities emerged even more later that afternoon at the FanCon proper. Fanmeet veterans know the drill: a straightforward program usually consisting of a video, Q&A, some fan games, and a hi touch. The Penshoppe FanCon was on a whole other level, packing all of that with a rave, mini-concert, and fashion show in a bit over three hours. Before the main event, we were treated to performances by DJ Tom Taus, the Philippine All-Stars, Keiko Necesario, IV of Spades and Club Penshoppe PH ambassadors Khalil Ramos, Maris Racal, Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio. Add the unveiling of Penshoppe’s nostalgic Pre-Holiday 2018 collection to complete the whole experience.

The wait for the stars of the hour was long, but the fans brought on the energy the entire time. RIP to my eardrums, which are still recovering as of this writing. When Dara and Joo Hyuk came out, the sold-out arena went wild, screaming whenever the pair so much as breathed.

Heck, even my fellow media people couldn’t control themselves. I’m looking at you, photographer who was jumping up and down with the 2NE1 lightstick, screaming “I love you Dara!” and all the reporters in my section doing finger hearts at Joo Hyuk. During the game portion, envious fans squealed when Joo Hyuk broke out of his shell and passionately hugged a fan while reenacting a scene from Weightlifting Fairy. We all melted. Dara’s fashion pose game was also a crowd fave, with participants really bringing their A-game to each pose. 

The night ended with Filipino stans well-fed, and Dara and Joo Hyuk throwing all their love back to them.

1. Top 2018 goal

Seems like Dara will be granting the number one wish of her fans by next year—a solo album is in the works! “My first priority is the album,” Sandara tells Super. “I’m focusing on recording and collecting songs.”

2. The most-awaited solo album

OK, calm down, Blackjacks— that’s not even the best part! Sandara also reveals she already has five tracks done and she has been working on her first-ever solo album since summer this year. “Nakakatawa, I started working on my album this summer, the first songs pa- discodisco pa. Tapos, biglang winter na, sabi ko sa producer ko gusto ko naman ng mga sad songs. Sabi niya lang sakin: HA?” OMG, we’ll be expecting a good mix of tracks from this album then!

Trans: its so funny, I started working on my album this summer, the 1st song is disco type. Then suddenly its winter, i told my producer that I like to have some sad songs. He/She said: Ha?

3. Dream music collaboration

“Ang ideal na collaboration ko is with a rapper— ang dami nila sa YG! Maybe I can get them onboard,

tapos kakanta ako,” she says. Sandara also reveals that she’s hoping it’s an acoustic track! We just hope she will collaborate with YG’s newest artist ONE.

4. Dara TV’s next vlogs

Whenever Sandara mentions she’s now a YouTuber in her Dara TV vlogs, she always says it in disbelief. “Syempre hindi pa ako ’yung professional na vlogger, but it’s really fun! You just need one camera and you shoot whatever you want and it already becomes one episode,” Dara says.

Trans: Of course im not a professional vlogger yet, but it’s realky fun! You just need one camera and you shoot whatever you want and it already becomes one episode,” Dara says.

She says she is the talent, director, producer of her own vlogs, but always credits the amazing Dara TV team for their amazing cuts and edits. Next on Dara TV are vlogs on her recent birthday celebration, Boracay trip with Seungri of BigBang, covers of songs (which includes OPM hits), and her favorite Seoul restaurants. One of Super’s suggestions is her skincare routine, but Dara reveals there’s nothing special about it as she only does three to four steps of the famed 10step Korean skincare regimen.

5. Your 2018 Valentine’s Day movie

She finished shooting “Cheese In The Trap” last July. You’ll finally get to see DaraHae (her tandem with Park Hae-jin) on the big screen in February 2018— we just hope it shows in Philippine cinemas, too!

6. Latest K-drama obsession

Dara loves rom-coms. She recently just finished watching “Temperature of Love” and says she would probably do well playing similar characters of the drama’s lead female role.

7. Manila vs Seoul

“Mas alam ko ang Manila kaysa sa Seoul, sa totoo lang,” Sandara reveals. She can’t suggest her top Seoul spots, but she says you must eat spicy rice cakes on the streets and Korean-style ribs! She also promises to make a vlog on the best Seoul restaurants soon.

Trans: Manila vs Seoul Actually, i know more about Manila than Seoul ,” Sandara reveals. She can’t suggest her top Seoul spots, but she says you must eat spicy rice cakes on the streets and Korean-style ribs! She also promises to make a vlog on the best Seoul restaurants soon.

8. Food stops

Our friends from Penshoppe reveal that apart from her usual Jollibee and Gerry’s Grill food runs, Dara loves Potato Corner, too! Don’t you just love it when you share something similar with your idol?

9. What to expect if a #PenshoppeXDara collection comes out

“Krung-krung ako pero I love simple clothes. I’m obsessed with white shirts! I want to draw on plain white ( and maybe black) shirts. Gustung-gusto ko ’yung ‘Different is good’ ng Penshoppe tapos I’ll add different drawings and written phrases,” Sandara says. We’ll definitely be waiting for those shirts to hit the racks!

Trans: I am Krung-krung but I love simple clothes. I’m obsessed with white shirts!

We’ll definitely be waiting for those shirts to hit the racks!

10. Favorite Penshoppe 2017 Holiday Collection pieces

If you haven’t noticed yet, Sandara’s current Penshoppe favorites are its old school hoodies —she even wore the one on her flight going to Manila! But what’s not to love about these holiday warmers? They’re cozy, simple, with just a touch of color.

Article: Sandara Park is Worth the Wait! Some Blackjacks Shared Their Story on Why Sandara Park is Worth The Wait!


Sandara Park is still how we came to know her: cute, funny and honest

Since Penshoppe Presents Dara was announced on social media, Sandara fans and Blackjacks alike had marked their calendars for the much-awaited fan meeting. There was only one place to be on the first day of December—the Kia Theater in Quezon City.

It seemed like an ordinary day for the rest of Manila, but at the entrance of this Cubao theater, fans of all ages (some even required mommy’s supervision), patiently queued hours before the event.

One of them was Roxanne Sergio, who came as early as 4:30 a.m. to line up. She was the first one at the venue, and she has the fast jeep ride from Antipolo City to Cubao to thank.

This 21-year-old has been a fan of Sandara Park since her Star Circle Quest days.

This is the first time she’s seeing her idol in the flesh, she said, courtesy of the recent purchase she made of a pair of denim jeans and Sandara’s current favorite, the white Penshoppe hoodie.

“Tiwala naman ako sa voice niya, even if she is performing alone. I hope she sings the classic 2NE1 songs because I’m sure they arranged it to fit her voice, and I can’t wait to hear that,” Roxanne told Super.

She ended up with a much deserved front-row seat, and can even see herself from the photo Sandara posted after the fan meet. Patience is indeed a virtue.

Some of Sandara’s fans came straight from their classes that day, too. A pair of college Accounting sophomores started their school day at 6:15 a.m., and after five classes, they rushed to the Kia Theater.

“We still listen to 2NE1 songs everyday, and today we’ll get to scream like there’s no tomorrow,” Kianna Villareal and Shannen Laforteza said. While in line, the girls gushed about Dara’s chemistry with Bigbang’s G-Dragon, and ranted about the artist’s online bashers.

“Don’t let yourself get affected by the mean things they say,” they told Dara.

These two girls, can’t imagine ending their long day (and starting the month of December) any other way—and we can’t blame them. Sandara Park, even without the rest of the 2NE1 gang, was worth the long wait.

“That night was a real flashback Friday night for all Blackjacks. It left me with such good vibes that will keep me smiling til the end of the month,” Roxanne shared after the concert.

The earlybird-slash-fangirl also came up with a message to her idol using the night’s setlist (brace yourself for some cheesiness): “DO YOU LOVE ME as a Blackjack? Because you lit up the FIRE in my heart. Maybe IT HURTS not to see the other members onstage but you proved ‘I AM THE BEST.’ The Blackjacks, including myself, will always be GOOD TO YOU—and CL, Bom and Minzy. We’re MISSING YOU already,” she said.

As she carried the same message of every fan in that theater that night. This young girl only had one hope—that, maybe, Sandara will be able to read it.

Sandara has been used to the spotlight being in showbiz since her teenage years.

She let out heavy sighs as each song finished, not really because of exhaustion. But with every track, she was conscious that time was ticking away.

She didn’t want to leave that stage—and no one in the crowd wanted her to.

Sandara told the Blackjacks that singing and dancing to live music kept her alive. It’s what she wants to do the most. Not only could they hear the sincerity in her cracking voice, they felt it.

She then sang “Can’t Nobody” and “Go Away,” and it was when the audience sang the loudest.

She closed with “I Am The Best” for her encore and it spoke volumes.

It was ultimately an empowering reminder for herself as she ventures on to the proverbial new chapter of life. And there was nothing like an eager crowd to help this artist realize that she is the best as she does the best that she can.
