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?
