Early life

Sandara was born to affluent Korean parents. However, by the time Sandara was 8-years-old, her father's relatives placed him in a financially tight spot which then crippled his business. In hope of recovering from this business strain, Sandara's father tried his luck in the Philippines, settling in a small apartment in Pasay City and starting a business. Sandara and her family remained in her grandmother's house in South Korea for some time until her father finally had enough money to relocate his family to the Philippines. The City of Pasay (Filipino: Lungsod ng Pasay) is one of the cities and municipalities that make up Metro Manila in the Philippines. ...


Sandara enrolled in voice lessons at the Center for Pop Music in the early 2000s. Initially, no one in their family was fluent in English or Tagalog. However, she learned English when she began school in the Philippines, and later became quite fluent in Tagalog. http://sandara-park.forumotion.com/index.htm This article is about the decade of 2000-2009. ... The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... Filipino (formerly Pilipino) is the national and an official language of the Philippines as designated in the 1987 Philippine Constitution. ...


The catapult to Philippine showbiz

During one of her school functions, Sandara met Pauleen Luna who was then a talent of ABS-CBN Channel 2. Luna encouraged the shy Sandara to audition for Star Circle Quest, a then-upcoming talent search for ABS-CBN. Park tried her luck and was in the same batch with fellow questors, Hero Angeles and Joseph Bitangcol. Pauleen Luna (born November 10, 1988 in Manila, Philippines) is a Filipina actress and television personality who is one of the hosts in the Philippine television program Eat Bulaga!. She appears in several GMA Network programs. ... Categories: Corporation stubs | Philippines | Television networks ...

The show's judges called her in and was able to elude elimination several times, paving way for inclusion into the contestant pool's top ten. Being a native Korean, she displayed some trouble with the daily exercises set by the panel of Filipino judges. Though she had some comedic ability, she remained monotonous, dull or lacking in timing. What she lacked in talent however, she made up with charisma. She proved this during the whole run of the show in which she consistently garnered the Texter's Choice Award, an award given weekly for the contestant who got the most text votes from the viewers. During the last elimination round in which the final five contestants were chosen, Sandara made Philippine history by garnering approximately 500,000 text votes, making her the first female to garner that much SMS support. And so she was in until the final night where she was announced runner-up to Hero Angeles. It is estimated that she got at least 2,000,000 accumulated SMS votes from supporters during the entire run of the contest. For other uses, see SMS (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see SMS (disambiguation). ...


During the contest's run, she was paired with Hero Angeles but their relationship became increasingly estranged. This later ended up in a real fight that broke up their partnership.


Post SCQ Events: Star Status Established

ABS-CBN showered Park with projects after her Star Circle Quest days. She had six local commercial endorsements for personal care and stationary products. She also received several television show offers. She starred as Sandara Soh in a Star Circle Quest spin-off SCQ Reload, OK Ako (SCQ Reload, I'm OK), and hosted Sandara's Romance, a show featuring Korean dramas and commentary, and had a hosting stint on ASAP Fanatic, a Sunday noontime teen variety show. She also appeared in a local daily primetime superhero soap opera, Krystala, as Kim, who shared similar personalities with her real-life self, but her tight schedule limited her appearances. ASAP Fanatic is the first variety show for teens aired every Sunday afternoon after ASAP Mania on ABS-CBN in the Philippines. ... Krystala was a daily fantasy/sci-fi/adventure/soap opera serial(superserye/fantaserye) from the Philippines, where it was produced by and aired on ABS-CBN from October 8, 2004 to April 15, 2005. ...


In addition, Sandara also embarked on a musical career that eventually led to the release of her self-titled 6-track album which spawned the novelty dance hits "In Or Out", a song that parodied her experiences on Star Circle Quest, and "Walang Sabit", the jingle for Rejoice Shampoo. In proof of Sandara's rapid rising star status, the album was certified double platinum after 6 months, selling 60,000 copies. A jingle is a memorable slogan, set to an engaging melody, mainly broadcast on radio and sometimes on television commercials. ...


Sandara also appeared in two movies. Her first one was a storyline in the three-storied movie Bcuz of U in which she co-starred with other prominent young local actors. Her second movie was her own movie with her loveteam partner, Hero Angeles, Can This Be Love, which grossed P 99,000,000. Can This Be Love is a film starring Hero Angeles and Sandara Park, with Roxanne Guinoo , Joross Gamboa and Paw Diaz. ...


Changing partners

After a tumultuous partnership with Hero Angeles, Sandara Park opted to pursue college and workshop lessons in Seoul, South Korea. There were rumors and statements in the Korean press that Sandara had tried to become a singer and actress in South Korea, but due to a series of setbacks, it never materialized.

Soon, local media, playing along the controversy, voiced their unhealthy indifference with Angeles and his brother-turned-manager, Henry. This even led to the Angeles brothers suing writer, columnist, and showbiz aficionado, Cristy Fermin. Nonetheless, Sandara left for Korea still, leaving her troubles unresolved and for the public to decide. Cristy Fermin (born Cristenely Fermin in 1958 in San Alejandro also known as Visoria, Quezon, Nueva Ecija, Philippines) is a Filipino talk show host and showbiz reporter. ...


During her stay in Korea, her rumored boyfriend, Joseph Bitangcol, openly admitted their relationship on national TV via the showbiz talk show, The Buzz, shocking Hero-Sandara fans. The Buzz may refer to: The Buzz (Talk Show), a television talk show in the Philippines The Buzz (SFU), a student newsletter at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada Buzz (TV series), a Canadian comedy television series The Buzz (comics), an insect-themed superhero from Marvel Comics Spider-Girl...


On July 14, 2007, Joseph Bitangcol confirmed that he and Sandy had dissolved their relationship two weeks prior.

Fad Fades

Six months after she first announced her plans of studying in South Korea, Sandara came back to the Philippines to continue her career. ABS-CBN had already released Angeles, and with no one currently paired with her, Joseph Bitangcol took the spot Angeles left.


Around December 2005, Sandara realized that her schedule was less tight than before. Despite her improvement in her singing and acting abilities after returning from South Korea, she had few TV invitations and one regular Sunday show. Additionally, she received a cold reception for her comeback. This was partly due to the success and attention the Pinoy Big Brother Season One housemates garnered. Pinoy Big Brother is the Philippine version of the reality television show Big Brother (the word Pinoy is a colloquial term for Filipino). ...


In early March 2006, Sandara voiced out on national television her feelings for the reception she received on her comeback, as well as her envy towards the Pinoy Big Brother housemates, commenting on them as colorful, whilst she is black and white.


However, the real surprise was when she revealed that her father abandoned them and had another family he resided with. Tears flowing, Sandara revealed that her father is a wife-beater and has taken all her savings, leaving them in a hard position once again.


A Comeback?

A week after Sandara gave her interview on national television, Star Cinema studios revealed its intent on casting Sandara and her boyfriend Joseph in D'Lucky Ones, coupled with her latest single, Ang Ganda Ko, the movie's official theme song. The movie opened in theaters on April 16, 2006 and grossed only P71,200,000.


Sandara then signed up with Regal Films as an actress for its movies. Dondon Monteverde, Regal's talent manager for Aubrey Miles, was in charge of Park's projects in the film outlet. She made her "Regal baby debut" in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry Super Noypi working along side with the actors from the GMA Network. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Super Noypi is a Filipino fantasy film scheduled for release on December 25, 2006 and is directed by Quark Henares. ...


Despite being a contract star of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents, Star Magic, Park appeared as a guest on the December 31, 2006 edition of GMA Network's Mel & Joey. Her appearance sparked rumors that Park was exploring the opportunity of transferring to the rival network. Star Magic, Inc. ...


Eight months later, and after receiving no substantial projects, on August 1, 2007, Sandara left the Philippines once more, sadly returning to South Korea[2] with her mother and siblings to begin a new life. The next day, August 2, 2007, YG Entertainment reported they had signed a contract with Sandara[3] and had the confidence that she would be successful like the popular singer BoA. As a new member of the YG family, she joined Korean popular artists and bands such as Se7en, JINUSEAN, LEXY, and 1TYM.

Criticism

Although she was enormously popular with the teen/young-adult market, critics had panned Park for being "all hype, and no substance." But many people believe she has what it takes to be a star it just needs to develop more.


Enthusiasm for Sandara died down with her breakup with Hero Angeles. After the breakup, Hero's acting career eventually faded due to further controversies with ABS-CBN and a couple of reporters. When the HeroSan mania that prevented other loveteams from gaining recognition had fizzled out, so did the career of Sandara whose reel and real partnership with fellow Star Circle Questor Joseph Bitangol hardly took off as a loveteam. After Hero's descent into obscurity, Hero later began a career as a film-maker, rather than continue his career as an actor.


It is said that Sandara's popularity will further drop with the entry of newer, fresher, and younger Pinoy Big Brother Teen celebrities..because in Philippines you have to be included in any dramas inorder for you to be successful..everyone believes sandara is going to be a star soon in her native country.
