Philippine Media Makes a Huge Fuss Over Dara's Shaved Head!

Sandara Park shaves head for new album

She may no longer be based in the Philippines, but former Philippine television host Sandara Park still shows her krung-krung (crazy and funny) side.

Park, now known as Park Dara, revealed a startling hairdo to promote a new album by her hip-hop-pop girl group 2NE1, Korean news site Chosun reported.

Chosun cited a photo posted on YG Entertainment's blog showing Park with the new hairdo and the caption "2012 0705," a reference to the July 5 launch date of the album.

"The photo shows Park in a leopard-print dress and flashy accessories, but the hairdo was her most remarkable attribute, with one side featuring long, wavy locks and the other side completely shaved," Chosun said.

It added Park has attracted attention before for her bold hairstyles.

Chosun said 2NE1 is scheduled to play in Seoul on July 28 and 29, and will go to six other countries for their "New Evolution" tour.

Park was born in Busan, South Korea, but her family moved to the Philippines when she was 10.

She started her showbiz career in the Philippines and gained popularity.

Park returned to South Korea with her family in 2007, after no more projects were offered to her.

YG Entertainment then announced Park signed a contract with them. 2NE1 debuted in May 2009.

I'm not a fan of the article's tone. Whatever happened to "Think Before You Click," GMA?

i don't think the fuss is about the hair honestly, only detecting minor shade.

tlict 29th-Jun-2012 08:57 am (UTC)
the article said nothing we did not already knew. so yeah, there was no big fuss?
julietislimited 29th-Jun-2012 09:04 am (UTC)
I think she looks good personally.

i think minzy or leader-sshi can also pull this off, just that Dara is braver and a lot crazier :)
falling_empress 29th-Jun-2012 09:48 am (UTC)
Huh? I thought she supposedly screwed that one butthurt actor by leaving the PI around 2007. That's a project...
staaan 29th-Jun-2012 10:07 am (UTC)
misleading title tbh
jeit91 29th-Jun-2012 10:22 am (UTC)

She is not known as Park Dara. Koreans call her Sandara Bak/Park more often. Or just Dara.

That is all.

I've always wondered why Koreans say her given name first. Is it just because it's her stage name?
capedavenger 29th-Jun-2012 08:53 pm (UTC)
it's probably because she became famous in the philippines first and it just carried over to south korea. i could be wrong though.

no one and everyone all at once.

Sorry but I don't see the point of posting this article here. There's absolutely no new info that hasn't been shared before and the title doesn't match the content. I don't see the big fuss and the tone isn't that bad.
blkjck 29th-Jun-2012 11:51 am (UTC)
why are ya'll complaining
the amount of shit that gets posted here....u really should be used to it

germaineu 29th-Jun-2012 02:08 pm (UTC)
lmao so true!! just graduated from one and I swear this hairstyle was starting to get on my nerves >.
renegaade 29th-Jun-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
I'm growing my hair out to get this style!
I like it!
germaineu 29th-Jun-2012 04:01 pm (UTC)
I liked it the first 50 times I saw it =/ but then everyone thought they had to have it -_-'

But good luck!! the hairstyle itself isn't bad, just overdone where I was.

best comparison ever.
dc222 29th-Jun-2012 12:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah, no big fuss. It's actually pretty positive if not neutral.

About the project thing, it's true. The network, ABS-CBN, pretty much brushed her aside (like they usually do), especially when Big Brother took off and they found new flavors of the month. If anything, mentioning that just points out how better off she is now than if she had stayed and got treated like crap.

But I digress... lol.
capedavenger 29th-Jun-2012 08:55 pm (UTC)
wasn't it also because she had left to go to south korea when she was at the height of her popularity in the philippines?
pistolkrystle 29th-Jun-2012 01:58 pm (UTC)
that's not my definition of a huge fuss. fans must hormonal or something.

chewmi 29th-Jun-2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
so tired of seeing this hairstyle...
capedavenger 29th-Jun-2012 08:56 pm (UTC)
is her hair that long or did they add extensions? i could've sworn her hair to be shorter, but that might have been a long time ago.

Where is "the big fuss"?
