“Sugarman” Sandara Park, Working in Public Relations Aside from Being MC? Assists in Scheduling Singers

2016031101000869300057771_99_20160310102704

MC Sandara Park was revealed to have been involved in having iKON, WINNER as “Show Men” and is actively functioning as public relations director.

Idols from YG Entertainment, iKON and WINNER, have participated in JTBC’s “Two Yoo – Sugarman Project.” On the January 19 broadcast, iKON appeared as “Show Men” where they did a rendition of Mose’s “It’s Love,” while WINNER appeared last March 8 and did a rendition of Hey’s “Je T’aime.” Insider talks reveal that MC Sandara Park, who is also PR Director, influenced the negotiation for guesting on the show (T/N <pointing out the obvious>: meaning that Dara had a hand in bringing them to guest as a show, by recommending them to the show’s producers and also clearing their schedule so they could appear.)

201603101023770716_56e0ccab99b2f_99_20160310103005

On the 10th, JTBC revealed that the biggest hurdle in getting idols to perform on the show is their tight schedules both locally and internationally, so Sandara Park often communicated with the managers of iKon and WINNER so she could arrange their schedules so that the idol groups were free to guest in “Sugarman.” In fact, it can be seen that Sandara Park is not only working as YG Entertainment’s public relations director, but is actually involved directly in YG promotion and arranging Show Men public relations at the same time.

In addition to being a mainstay and MC in “SugarmanSandara Park is being regularly contacted by the main writer as a public relations liaison/contact. Whenever “Sugarman” proposals are up, she regularly gives ideas and recommendations on the Sugar Men (T/N: previous artists who were famous), producers, and artists that can come out on the show (T/N: the show’s “Show Men”); seeing her willingness to participate even in the public relations side of the show, apart from being an MC, which is also her first time doing so, shows Sandara Park’s considerable enthusiasm in this undertaking.

That’s not all. JTBC representatives revealed, “Sandara Park is closely doing public relations for Lee Hi, who recently released her album, and also group Akdong Musician, who are expected to release an album as well; she also has strong determination for a Big Bang performance in the future as well.

Sugarman” broadcasts every Tuesday nght at 10:50 PM.

Leading Korean indie sales company Finecut has picked up rights to “One Step,” a music drama starring top K-pop girl band 2NE1’s member Sandara Park, TV veteran Han Jae-seok, and rising indie actor Cho Dong-in, who is managed by Finecut’s own talent management wing.

As a former Kim Ki-duk protégé, Juhn directed a stellar Kim-produced debut feature “Beautiful,” which premiered in Panorama at Berlin in 2008. His follow-up, “Poongsan” was also written and produced by Kim. “Step” is Juhn’s second film without Kim’s touch, following 2014’s “Gifted.”

Produced and presented by MCC Entertainment, a production house better known for its sound track productions for TV dramas such as “Jewel in the Palace,” “Step” is set for a local theatrical release later this year.

On the first episode of MBC’s new Wednesday & Thursday drama, “One More Happy Ending”, Kim Jeonghoon (Lee Dong-ha-I) left Han Mi-mo (Jang Nara) and proposed to Goo Seul-ah (Sandara Park).

A divorced single lady, Han Mi-mo was expecting to marry Kim Jeonghoon for her second marriage. When she found out about Kim Jeonghoon’s plan to propose to someone, Han Mi-mo was so happy while dressing up and putting on makeup. However, she received a text message from him saying, “Let’s break up. Sorry”. Ha Mi-mo became furious and called him to say “How can you end our two year relationship with only two lines of text message”.

Kim Jeonghoon said, “I was going to tell you in person tomorrow”. Right after he finished his words, he then knelt in front of Goo Seul-ah and proposed to her. “Will you marry me”, said he. What happened was that Kim Jeonghoon was playing between Goo Seul-ah and Han Mi-mo and Goo Seul-ah became pregnant.

Han Mi-mo later felt terribly shocked when she found out Kim Jeonghoon’s lover was the superstar actress Goo Seul-ah, who was the reason for the break-up of their previous girl group Angels.

He said, “The character is the only member of the girl group who was able to rise to fame as a top actress. She is the visual of the girl group. Due to the beauty of the actresses who play the other girl group members, it was very difficult to find someone who can play the character whose beauty is supposed to outshine them all. Due to Yoo In Na’s close relationship with Sandara Park, we were able to cast her to play that character.”

One More Happy Ending” is about aging girl group members who are trying to have a second chance at love. It is a production aimed towards those who are striving to have a second chance at happiness in 2016. The drama will premiere on January 20 at 10 p.m. KST.

News: 2NE1 Might Come Back… 4 Big Reasons to Expect 2NE1′s Comeback Despite YG’s Efforts to Keep it Secret

2NE1 might come back… 4 big reasons to expect 2NE1′s comeback despite YG’s efforts to keep it secret

2015111109424101040_1_99_20151111121304

[스타뉴스=길혜성 기자] A team who has the record of the  highest-ever ranking (61st) on Billboard 200, American Billboard’s main albums chart, for any Korean singer, whether it is team or solo, man or woman. A team who has an impressive melody line which even people in their 30s and 40s can easily sing along, which is not a usual case among Korea’s girl groups. A team who can best-express both ballad and dance music. A team who proved that a girl group can be successful for the quality of their music and performance, not just for their good look. A team who has numerous hits such as “FIRE”, “I DON’T CARE”, “I’M THE BEST”, “GO AWAY”, “LONELY”, “UGLY”, “CAN’T NOBODY”, “IN THE CLUB”, “I LOVE YOU”, “CLAP YOUR HANDS”, “HATE YOU”, “GOTTA BE YOU”, “MTBD”, “IF I WERE YOU”, and “COME BACK HOME”. These are words that describe 2NE1, a girl group of four members: CL, DARA, BOM, and MINZY.

2NE1 enjoyed big popularity in and out of the country with their intense and unique style since their debut in spring, 2009. However, after releasing second full-length album “CRUSH” that took the 61st place on American Billboard’s Billboard 200 chart, they have been absent from the music scene for one year and nine months. After the release of album “CRUSH” with title track of “COME BACK HOME”, CL has been preparing for her solo debut in the United States and DARA has concentrated on acting and MCing. MINZY continued with her education and began a dance studio business. BOM has had some time for self-reflection, after an incident that took place last year.

Meanwhile, news that hints on 2NE1′s comeback after a long time of absence has recently been released. 2NE1′s label YG Entertainment posted a teaser image with words “WHO’S NEXT?” and “Nov. 21, 2015, 21:00″ on the company’s official blog YG LIFE, on the 9 this month. The teaser image for the artist to release a new song on the 21 this month at 21 o’clock is repeatedly showing the number 21 which is deeply related with 2NE1. So, music industry insiders and fans are speculating that the team to come back on the day at that time is highly likely to be 2NE1.

YG is keeping secret about 2NE1′s plans, after the release of the teaser. However, as there are four big reasons to think that it is 2NE1 who is coming back this time, music fans are now paying keen attention to whether 2NE1 will really release a new song after their one year and nine months of absence.

The biggest hint is the teaser image proudly unveiled by YG. As YG is famous for its unique way of promotion, the teaser image with the number of “21″ suggests a high possibility of connection with 2NE1.

The second hint is related with YG’s main producer TEDDY. TEDDY has worked with 2NE1 since the team’s debut and worked like the mentor for 2NE1 members, creating a lot of hit songs of 2NE1. Recently, TEDDY announced that he is establishing a new label of YG with KUSH, which means, 2NE1 might release a new album not through YG itself but through TEDDY’s new label which is a kind of YG’s branch. As for YG, many artists such as iKON, WINNER, and PSY are waiting for their comeback. Thus, it is also good for YG to release 2NE1′s new song through TEDDY’s label. As such, the establishment of TEDDY’s new label has raised the possibility of 2NE1′s new release both for YG and 2NE1.

The fact that CL has yet to begin her solo career in the States is another reason to believe that 2NE1 is coming back. CL, the leader of 2NE1 who is recognized as one of the best female idol singers in Korea, has practically finished preparations for her solo debut in the States. Indeed, the news of CL’s solo debut album release in the States was released in this fall. However, as she has postponed the time of her solo album release in the country, some music industry insiders have speculated that there might be a secret project for 2NE1′s comeback underway. That is a sufficient reason to think that 2NE1 is highly likely to release a new song this month.

The last reason is YG’s remark in the past. In this summer, YG unintentionally said to OSEN about a media outlet’s speculation over 2NE1′s dissolution, “That is a groundless rumor. 2NE1 even has a plan to release a new song within this year”.

As such, there are a series of reasons to believe that 2NE1 is coming back soon. Of course, it might not be 2NE1 who will release a new song on the 21 at 21 o’clock. However, the possibility of comeback of 2NE1 who has both original style and popular appeal is making music fans happy.
