2NE1’s Sandara Park Shocked by Her Passport Photo

 

Sandara Park has been a favorite of ours for years. The South Korean idol singer, actress, dancer and model began her career in the Philippines as an actress and is most known as a member of popular K-Pop group 2NE1. While it’s not unusual to see this idol make headlines, like when she met Steven Yeun and when she got a kiss on the cheek from Justin Beiber, Park is currently attracting attention for something we didn’t expect: her passport photo.

On October 1, Park posted the picture on her Instagram with a caption that translates to “Can’t Nobody Can’t Nobody ~ suddenly got photographed while on stage … the feeling when I later found this photo on my passport … jjangmae [referring to her manager].” Not one to let the shock get to her, she adds that the photo still looks cute.

We definitely agree! The photo brings smiles because it is unusual for someone to have such an abnormal hairstyle in a passport photo, especially since that photo is typically expected to be taken seriously. However, we’re allowing Park to be an exception since she has always been recognized for her bold and extraordinary hairstyles, which she proudly displays in her concerts and daily life.

Let’s take a look at some of Park’s other crazy hairstyles that only she can pull off. Tell us which is your favorite!

Image of the Day: 2NE1’s Dara Park Meets Steven Yeun

If you’re a fan of both K-Pop and The Walking Dead, be prepared to get your fan-girling on. Recently Dara Park instgrammed a picture of The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun. (Steven, is that eyeliner we see!?)

Sandara Park, a South Korean idol singer, actress, dancer and model, has been a favorite of ours for years. Park, who began her career in the Philippines as an actress, is most known as a member of popular K-Pop group 2NE1.

Apparently, Steven Yeun is among her numerous fans overseas. The actor, who plays Glenn on The Walking Dead, is rumored to be in South Korea for a visit.

“It was very nice meeting you,” Park wrote as the photo caption. Yeun not only re-tweeted the photo, but started following Park on twitter.

This certainly isn’t the first time that Sandara has befriended overseas celebrities. Just last year, Dara gained viral attention after a photo of Justin Beiber kissing her cheek made its way around the internet. Needless to say, fans seem much more happy about her friendship with Yeun.

 

Viral Alert: Justin Bieber Kisses Sandara Park?

When we think of Justin Bieber, our minds automatically go to his never-ending collection of snapbacks, his on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez and even to his odd obsession with the color purple.

Of all the things that come to mind when we hear Justin Bieber’s name, we certainly didn’t expect to ever add Sandara Park to that list.

Sandara, better known as Dara, is a Korean idol and member of popular girl group 2NE1. Prior to her success in Korea, Sandara gained quite a bit of popularity in the Philippines through ABS-CBN’s talent competition Star Circle Quest. 

Although we never would have paired the two together, a simple google search will show tons of stories about the duo, all of which are in shock over a picture of Bieber planting a kiss on Sandara’s cheek. Needless to say, the picture went viral and speculations sprouted everywhere.

But before you start any speculations of your own, it may be important to view the entire picture first:

Clearly, Korean-American jeweler Ben Baller is in the picture as well. In fact he was the one who uploaded the picture and shows no signs of uncomfortable third-wheeling.

But even with the addition of a third person in this picture, netizens are going crazy over the idea of the two stars potentially having a romantic relationship, especially because of their 10-year age gap.  Oh-dara.com reports both negative and positive comments about the pair:

“Please take care Dara,”
“Justin Bieber and Sandara Park, is a fresh combo,”
“A gathering of shining stars,” “No one is even interested at Ben Baller,”
“Nooooo. My Dara-noona,”
“They must’ve talked a bit since Sandara Park can speak English well”
“Justin Bieber, please put into mind that she is a noona to you,”
“Justin Bieber fell under Sandara Park’s charm,”
“Justin Bieber and Sandara Park match each other,”
“A hot expression of affection,”
“You guys surprisingly match well,”
“Does Justin Bieber know that there’s a 10-year gap between him and Sandara Park?” “It’s nothing, Sandara Park makes anyone look good,”
“About Justin Bieber kissing Sandara Park, Justin Bieber’s fans are known to cause mischief, please be careful Sandara Park,”

 

The photo was apparently taken during a launch party for Jay Park’s hip hop label AOMG. According to Soompi, Justin Bieber is currently going through his Asian tour and is (clearly) making friends along the way.
