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

“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.

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.”
