Sandara Park Spotted in Manila, May Appear in Big Bang Concert



Looks like BIGBANG has a surprise visit from a YG sister!

2NE1's Dara was spotted at the lobby of EDSA Shangri-La, where the boys of BIGBANG are staying. She is said to have arrived in Manila at around 11:00 AM and went straight to the hotel.

The Philippines' "Krung-Krung" has been exchanging tweets with BIGBANG members Taeyang and G-Dragon, recommending them to eat spaghetti at a certain local fast food chain (I'm pretty sure it's Jollibee!- Empress Maruja). Taeyang even wanted Dara to be their official tour guide while they're here in the country.

The latest from Dara's Twitter account (@krungy21) shows her goofing around at a certain mall in Greenhills, San Juan City, with the caption: "Sandara rules!!!"

Sandara is said to be a special guest for the BIGBANG Alive Tour in Manila. No word yet on her itinerary and the length of her stay in the Philippines but do stay tuned for updates on MYXph.com!

In other BIGBANG in Manila news, concert promoter Ovation Productions has announced that the use of cameras during their concert at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena was disallowed by YG Entertainment.
