Sandara Park Opens Up About Kissing 'The Heirs' Actor Lee Min Ho 50 Times
Former 2NE1 member Sandara Park has revealed how hard it was for her to film her kissing scene with Korean actor Lee Min Ho. The Heirs star was featured in the music video of Dara's solo song, "Kiss," on 2010.
In the recent episode of tvN's Seoulmate 2, Sandara accompanied comedian Kim Sook on her trip to the Philippine to shoot an episode of the show. Seoulmate is a variety show in which celebrities open their home to foreign visitors so they could have the best experience of Seoul living.
For the second season of the show, the hosts will be going overseas to meet their friends abroad. Kim Sook is coming to the Philippines to visit her former housemates in the first season.
During their trip, Kim Shook asked Dara about the "Kiss" MV which she came across while browsing the internet on her phone. The singer said it was her first and only solo song as a member of now-disbanded 2NE1. Then she talked about her "revenge" kiss with The Heirs actor Lee Min Ho towards the end of the MV.
Dara told Kim Sook that Lee is actually one of the most well-known Korean actors in the Philippines, where she started her career. Then Dara revealed that they shot the particular scene for 50 times because she can't make it right.
"We did it 50 times. Because I didn't know. I was a rookie, and there were so many people... I wasn't able to really feel the kiss," she revealed.
Netizens commented that Dara might have been really nervous when they film the kissing scene considering how good-looking the actor is. The career of Lee Min Ho is also blooming at the time after the success of his K-drama Boys Over Flowers in 2009.
Meanwhile, YG Entertainment earlier confirmed that Dara will be featured in the upcoming comeback single of fellow 2NE1 member Park Bom. The group's fans are thrilled for the collaboration as it will be their first after 2NE1's final single "Goodbye" in 2017. Reports indicate that Dara also shed tears upon hearing Bom's upcoming song.
Dara and Park Bom debut together along with CL and Minzy in 2009. Minzy is the first member who left the group in 2016. The group disbanded later that year. Dara and CL remain signed under YG Entertainment while Park Bom's contract was not renewed.
Park Bom, CL, and Minzy also recently congratulated Dara for being the new MC of Video Star. The three expressed their excitement on Dara's new project and CL even teased her former bandmate to invite her on Video Star.
