Sandara Park in Star Magic Catalogue

3ABS-CBN has recently released copies of their annual publication, Star Magic Catalogue 2010 which showcases over 300 artistes laid out on 150 pages.

There was a surprise though for fans of Sandara Park, or more affectionately known as Krung-Krung to her fans in the Philippines who still look out for her even though she’s based in Korea now, after appearing in the Star Magic Catalogue 2010.

No idea when this was taken or why Sandara is included in this catalouge since she’s now under YG Entertainment and doing well as part of 2NE1. But it might be because because she still has ties with ABS-CBN, having debuted in their Star Circle Quest program in 2004. Anyway, she looks beautiful and stunning in this single page spread

G-Dragon and Dara have chemistry

1

The eye contact between’s Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon and 2NE1’s weiner, Sandara Park aka Dara was a hot issue today.

G-Dragon performed today at Korea’s Global Gathering event and had KUSH as well as Dara join him on stage. G-Dragon’s new album is not only consisted of well written songs but also features many great artists from Teddy to CL to Dara to KUSH.

When Dara joined him on stage for their duet song, Hello, people noticed the amazing chemistry between the two performers. Netizens commented, “Are they dating?”, “Alright, just go out already!”, “Aww they would be a young boy-older woman couple!”, and “They both have a cute face so they look good together.” I won’t mention the jealous fans but there was one comment that caught my eye. It’s a bit off topic but… “Dara kind of looks like BoA.” Doesn’t she?

Though we all know that it’s not love that is bringing the enthusiastic performance, it’s their amazing stage persona.

Check out some pictures where they make some intense eye contact! Hope to see even more 2NE1-Big Bang action in the future!

finally 2ne1 NAILED it!

Spread some of the “Fire”~

2NE1 just had their third live stage this past weekend, and really, they nailed it. Their vocals were sharp, all the girls had their energy up, the stage doesn’t look as empty as usual because of the glowing white jungle gym, and their outfits were toned down to an acceptably flattering level.

If you haven’t noticed, 2NE1’s only live stages have been consecutively on the SBS Inkigayo. YG Entertainment have stayed with Inkigayo so far because they have shown the most “interest” in 2NE1, but now they are finally moving on to KBS Music Bank. 2NE1 are apparently going to get a complete upgrade in style and choreography. No more wonky street outfits, lack of much needed background dancers, and (hopefully) what I call the “I’m sweeping the floor with my hand” move. How much it’ll change is questionable, but any improvement is always welcome.

It seems like they are using this tactic to up the ante for the music programs, as they continuously build upon the performances, so the fans will always be craving more and each step will offer something different, instead of the same old routine again and again.

In addition to that, 2NE1 is going to release a new offline album that you can physically buy in July. YG has said that the new concept will be much different from the swaggerific appeal of “Fire,” and opting for more “feminine charm.”

And to review their first stage, the girls received advice from Big Bang on how they should hold their mics and also they had Yang Hyun Seok himself to rearrange their choreography.
