Exclusive: Sandara Park is back
By Patty Ramirez
Former teen star SandaraPark arrived unexpectedly last night from South Korea for a six-day vacation in Manila. Walking down the arrival area ramp, Sandara joyfully ran towards close friends who came to pick her up. “Sobrang na-miss ko kayo!” she said with a wide smile.
Sandara, who left the country last year to pursue a career in her homeland, had been itching to return to Manila but her busy schedule as a trainee for managing company YG Entertainment prevented her from doing so. She finally got the chance though when all the trainees were given a break for a few days, hence her surprise visit.
The young actress was so nervous about flying on her own that she didn’t eat much during the flight. Her instant request upon arrival was to eat sinigang and sisig, her favorite Filipino dishes. Even though she was tired, she was very excited to see showbiz and non-showbiz friends alike. And hopefully she gets to see them all before she leaves for Seoul again on the 12th.
Sandara has been training intensively in singing, dancing, and acting for her Korean showbiz debut. She has already been seen as a star for a music video opposite one of Korea’s popular teen idols. She was rumored to be part of a girl group, said to be the counterpart of YG’s biggest boy band, Big Bang. However, all Sandara could say is that she’s waiting patiently for that big break to happen.
Watch out for Sandara’s live appearance on ASAP ’08 and on various ABS-CBN shows.
