News: Dara Is ‘One Step’ Closer to Philippine Cinemas + Block Screenings


Former 2NE1 member Dara, known to the Philippines by many as Sandara Park, is making a comeback to Philippine cinemas with the Korean film One Step.

Dara has been a popular face in Philippine movies through her lead and supporting roles in Bcuz of U, Can This Be Love, D’ Lucky Ones and Super Noypi. She also had cameo appearances on Volta and My Ex and Whys.

The film was initially released in South Korea on April 6, 2017 and will be locally distributed nationwide in the Philippines by VIVA International Pictures. The film is directed by Juhn Jai Hong.

Dara plays the lead role and shares the limelight of her official comeback in the big screen with co-stars Han Jae Suk, Cho Dong In and Hong Ah Reum.


After a car accident, Si-hyun (Dara Park) is left with no memory of her past and lives with Ji-won (Hong Ah Reum) whom she met at the hospital. Si-hyun has colored hearing, an illness that visualizes sounds into colors. The mixed array of colors she sees with music makes her dizzy, so she protects herself by wearing a set of giant headphones.

One day, Ji-won’s brother Woo-hyuk (Cho Dong In) hears Si-hyun humming a melody in her sleep. He writes it down and gives her the score, hoping it will help recall her past.

Meanwhile, Jee-il (Han Jae Suk), a washed-out songwriter chances upon this score and offers to find the melody Si-hyun continues to hear in her dreams.

They embark on a healing journey as they collaborate to complete Si-hyun’s melody.


Colored Hearing is a type of synesthesia in which head sounds automatically and involuntarily evoke an experience of color. There are no causes that have been clearly identified, but in some cases, past experiences can influence this condition.


Dara herself has extended warmest gratitude to her fans in the Philippines by sending signed ‘One Step’ movie posters.

“My friend from Star Magic is coming here (to Korea) next week. I’ll give these posters to her so she can give it for the block screenings,” she said in a tweet.

Pupunta dito ang friend ko from starmagic next week, i’ll give this posters to her para she can give it sa mga block screenings. 🙂🙏🏻👍🏻

News: Dara Recently Talked About her Future Goals with Park Bom


Sandara Park recently talked about her goals for the future.

During an interview for her upcoming film “One Step,” the singer-turned-actress talked about her new role as Hong Seol’s friend Jang Bora in the film “Cheese in the Trap.” According to the report, Sandara Park has worked hard to bring her character Jang Bora to life. Even during her audition, she surprised the production team by preparing a refreshing and straightforward way of speaking for the role. “Rather than creating something, I’d rather act in my own style as usual. The director requested that I do so.”

Sandara Park revealed that her ultimate goal is to be a versatile entertainer, and chose Uhm Jung Hwa as a role model. “I recently talked about it with Park Bom at the ‘One Step’ press screening. When Uhm Jung Hwa acts, people don’t think of her as a singer. On the flip side, it’s not awkward when she stands on the stage. It’s to the point where you don’t even think of her image as an actor. I also want to transform whenever I’m active in different fields.” She then stated that she wants to be a “little Uhm Jung Hwa.”

“Of course I don’t think I can do as much as Uhm Jung Hwa,” Sandara Park said. “But I want to follow in her footsteps. I want to work hard in a variety of different fields. I’m going to work hard so that it’s not awkward. Since I’ve already done acting and singing, the only thing that’s left is to be a radio DJ. I really want to take on that challenge one day.”

Meanwhile, Sandara Park’s upcoming film “One Step” is set to release on April 6.

News: “Leaving the comfort zone of 2NE1 and getting into a battle field”… Sandara Park’s 3rd life.

[OSEN Journalist Jang Jin Ri]

Sandara has shown a “true her” through music movie “One Step”. It was the first time she participated in a movie and played the leading role, which made it even more meaningful for her.

Sandara Park debuted as a 2NE1 member in 2009 and being a singer for several years. She now has a brand new title – actress – due to the movie “One Step”. Dara is gradually showing herself as an actress from web drama to the movie. Although she says “Well begun is half done.”, she only rates her acting skill a 51 points.

“I feel like I don’t really recognize myself. I never do. I’m the kind of person who cannot recognize myself. If 100 is maximum, I might get 51. But that is what beginning means, since there is a saying “Well begum is half done.” If I rated myself 100 it’d be like a poser.” She laughed.

“One Step” is talking about Sihyun who lost her memory in an accident and Jill who was a composer but suddenly failed to compose songs. They cured each other through music and during the time they both grew up. As for Sihyun and Jill’s story and the slogan of the movie: “Who am I?”, Sandara said: “Due to my busy work these years, I barely asked myself “Who am I?”. But while we were filming the movie, I asked myself “Who am I?”, then I realized “Just Sandara Park” so I could keep doing this.”

2017 means a lot of “for the first time” to Sandara Park. Solo activities for the first time, participating in a movie for the first time, playing a leading role for the first time. Sandara Park is excited for it but also a bit nervous. However, she says its gonna be “Sandara Park’s 3rd life.”

“I had been a singer for a long time, but there is no solo songs that for me to feel like “This is my song.”. Now I just left the comfort zone of 2NE1 and stepped into a battlefied. It’s war and I have to fight for it. It seems to be my 3rd life. My 1st life was in the Philippines, 2nd was being 2NE1 member. And now this solo Sandara Park is gonna be the 3rd life.”

Sandara Park is willing to do something as a singer even though she is officially stepping into acting. “I want to be a person like Um Jung-Hwa sunbae. She is a singer when she sings, and becomes an actress when she acts. I want to become little Um Jung-Hwa. I’d love to have much more acitivites in the one and only path that Um Jung-Hwa unnie has walked by.”

The cast of the much-anticipated “Cheese in the Trap” film adaptation have finally gotten together!

On March 25, Park Hae Jin’s official Instagram (managed by his agency Mountain Movement) shared photos from the get-together on Instagram, with the caption, “Our team that got close at our first meeting. Looking forward to the set.” Many of the other actors have also shared one of the same photos to their own Instagrams.

News: Sandara Park and Kim Hyun Jin Cast in Film Adaptation of “Cheese in the Trap”

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.
