Sandara Park in “Doraon Iljimae”

After a looooooong wait, fans (and detractors) of Sandara Park will finally see her on primetime TV in Korea. It has been reported earlier that she will guest star on the Korean drama topbilled by Jeong Il Woo.

I haven’t seen an episode of “Doraon Iljimae”, a historical drama shown on MBC every Wednesday and Thursday nights. I learned about Sandara’s inclusion in the drama through her thread in Pinoyexchange. She posts messages regularly for her fans in the Philippines on her thread. Her handle is “k**********” and she writes in Tagalog!

Two weeks ago, an interview with Sandara came out on ABS-CBN’s website. The article also came out with pictures of Sandara in her role as “Rie” in the Korean drama.

Watch out for “Doraon Iljimae” episode number seven that will be aired next week, February 11. Fans surely wouldn’t want to miss her first TV role in Korea.

  1. Oh majayo.
    Sandara is casted in the “Return of Iljimae” as Rie.
    Is it a cameo role? But I think its a minor one.
    Good for Sandara. She’s not too popular here in the Philippines now.
    Ah, I also saw the music video where she was featured.
    Sandara is a very lucky girl~! She even become casted in the female version of Big Bang. Am I right?
    AJA SANDARA~!

  2. i’m just wondering how does one enter showbusiness in korea.how come high schoolers sign up with managers without parental consent( i’ve seen this happen in a recent drama). moreover , it seems that those wannabees pay a certain of money to management companies to get a role, land a recording etc. do you think sandara tried it this way pay a certain amount of money to get a top management agency represent and land her a deal?also how come gays don’t play a major role in korean showbusiness which is the reverse here and in hollywood?

    1. hi ellen! i’m not really sure how one enter showbusiness in korea but from one drama i saw a decade ago (Stars something) they do a lot of auditions… i think sandara became known in Korea through her appearance in a KBS documentary… during that time, people would ask me if i knew sandara since i’m a filipina… by the way, ask a korean if there are gays in Korea… you’ll get a resounding NOOOOOO! when in fact there are gays here…

  3. good for her. i think she’s slowly making a name for herself in her native Korea. i wish her all the luck. maybe the Philippines is not really the place for her to enter showbusiness. good luck sandy!

    marians last blog post..Tough Times…

    1. @marian >> i’m not really a fan of sandara but she seems to be genuinely nice… i was amused learning that she still speaks tagalog and she keeps in contact with her fans

  4. TO marga:
    Sandara said that her role is a minor one. She will be teaching kung fu to the lead actor and that’s it. She knew that it was just a small role but she is hoping that it can help her in the future projects she will be getting. Besides, Sandara said she never audition for the part. It was like they (managers and etc) just talked about it and that role was given to her.

  5. I just love her…she never failed to amuse me..she is pretty…I am supporting her all the way…because she is trying her best not only for herself but for her family.

  8. Yes, Sandara remains amusingly humble. To her Korean fans, if you want to have copies of her Philippine CD, SANDARA PARK, there are a few copies left. Just let me know. Thanks.
