Dara's real name is Sandara Park, and she was formerly an actress and singer in the Philippines. After her contract finished, her family decided to move back to South Korea. Later on, she came back with the group 2NE1 with CL, Minzy, and Park Bom.

She is currently active in her acting career while 2NE1 is on its hiatus.

Early Life

Park was born in Busan, South Korea. When she was 10 years old, her family moved to the Philippines to start a trading business.

In 2004, during one of her school activities, she met Pauleen Luna, a former talent of ABS-CBN Corporation Channel 2's Talent Center. Luna encouraged Park to audition for Star Circle Quest, a reality-based talent search television program. Over the course of the season, she escaped elimination several times, and reached the final ten contestants. Her Korean ethnicity resulted in some trouble with the daily exercises set by the panel of Filipino judges. During the last elimination round (in which only five people advanced), Park received approximately half a million text votes. She eventually finished in second place behind Hero Angeles.

Park joined ABS-CBN's entertainment stable called Star Magic in the wake of her success in the show, with her projects ranging from commercial endorsements to television appearances. She starred in her first movie Bcuz Of U (2004), a three-story movie.[8][better source needed] She acted alongside Hero Angeles, and Filipino actors Kristine Hermosa and Heart Evangelista. Park won "Best New Actress", her first acting award, in the 21st Philippine Movie Press Club Star Awards.

2ne1

YG Entertainment announced that the new group would consist of four members and debut sometime in May 2009.The company stated that the group had trained for four years, and that their debut album would contain songs produced by 1TYM's leader, Teddy Park and G-Dragon of Big Bang. The group's name was initially announced as "21"; however, due to the discovery of a singer with the same name, the group was renamed "2NE1", which "NE" is the abbreviation of "New Evolution". Sandara was placed in 2NE1, alongside Bom, Minzy and CL.
