Korean singer and actress Dara, a.k.a Sandara Park, has embarked on her movie career and said she wants to work with three of the most popular Korean actors in the future.
Dara picked "Train to Busan" and "Goblin" fame Gong Yoo, "Descendants of the Sun" star Song Joong-ki and "Love in the Moonlight" lead Park Bogum as the actors she wants to have as leading men.
"I hope I can work with them one by one. There are so many top actors like Song Joong-ki, Park Bogum, Gong Yoo," she said.
The ex-2NE1 member visited Manila for the premiere of her first Korean movie "One Step," which opened in the Philippines on May 10.
She plays Si-hyun in the movie, a woman who, after a car accident, suffers from a condition in which she sees music in colors. Dara said she had fun shooting the movie, which also stars Han Jae-suk and Hong Ah-reum.
Dara was a star in the Philippines, where she grew up before she joined 2NE1 in 2009. Her experience as an actress in the Philippines helped her in making "One Step."
Dara is concentrating on her solo career as a singer but she's positive that some day, she will be reunited with CL, Bom and Minzy to become 2NE1 again.
"I feel that after a few years, we will be together again and we will be better singers. I want to try songs that suit me," she said.
About her personal life, Dara said as of now, she doesn't have a boyfriend.
She had mutual understandings with men but said she "was not brave enough to get a boyfriend" because of her fear of Yang Hyun-suk, the head of YG Entertainment, her agency.
Her contract states that she cannot have a boyfriend for three years, she said.
Today, she said, she is not looking for a romantic relationship unlike when she was in her 20s. "I feel lazy (when it comes to looking for a boyfriend). I'm happier that I'm working," she said.
Following 2NE1's disbandment last year, she signed a contract with YG Entertainment to manage her solo career.
