10 SU­PER FACTS ABOUT DARA

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - SUPER - —Vinz Lamorena

1. Top 2018 goal

Seems like Dara will be grant­ing the num­ber one wish of her fans by next year—a solo al­bum is in the works! “My first pri­or­ity is the al­bum,” Sandara tells Su­per. “I’m fo­cus­ing on record­ing and col­lect­ing songs.”

2. The most-awaited solo al­bum

OK, calm down, Black­jacks— that’s not even the best part! Sandara also re­veals she al­ready has five tracks done and she has been work­ing on her first-ever solo al­bum since sum­mer this year. “Nakakatawa, I started work­ing on my al­bum this sum­mer, the first songs pa- dis­codisco pa. Ta­pos, biglang win­ter na, sabi ko sa pro­ducer ko gusto ko na­man ng mga sad songs. Sabi niya lang sakin: HA?” OMG, we’ll be ex­pect­ing a good mix of tracks from this al­bum then!

3. Dream mu­sic col­lab­o­ra­tion

“Ang ideal na col­lab­o­ra­tion ko is with a rap­per— ang dami nila sa YG! Maybe I can get them on­board,

ta­pos kakanta ako,” she says. Sandara also re­veals that she’s hop­ing it’s an acous­tic track! We just hope she will col­lab­o­rate with YG’s new­est artist ONE.

4. Dara TV’s next vlogs

When­ever Sandara men­tions she’s now a YouTu­ber in her Dara TV vlogs, she al­ways says it in dis­be­lief. “Syem­pre hindi pa ako ’yung pro­fes­sional na vlog­ger, but it’s re­ally fun! You just need one cam­era and you shoot what­ever you want and it al­ready be­comes one episode,” Dara says.

She says she is the ta­lent, di­rec­tor, pro­ducer of her own vlogs, but al­ways cred­its the amaz­ing Dara TV team for their amaz­ing cuts and ed­its. Next on Dara TV are vlogs on her re­cent birthday cel­e­bra­tion, Bo­ra­cay trip with Se­un­gri of Big­Bang, cov­ers of songs (which in­cludes OPM hits), and her fa­vorite Seoul restau­rants. One of Su­per’s sug­ges­tions is her skin­care rou­tine, but Dara re­veals there’s noth­ing spe­cial about it as she only does three to four steps of the famed 10step Korean skin­care reg­i­men.

5. Your 2018 Valen­tine’s Day movie

She fin­ished shoot­ing “Cheese In The Trap” last July. You’ll fi­nally get to see DaraHae (her tan­dem with Park Hae-jin) on the big screen in Fe­bru­ary 2018— we just hope it shows in Philip­pine cinemas, too!

6. Lat­est K-drama ob­ses­sion

Dara loves rom-coms. She re­cently just fin­ished watch­ing “Tem­per­a­ture of Love” and says she would prob­a­bly do well play­ing sim­i­lar char­ac­ters of the drama’s lead fe­male role.

7. Manila vs Seoul

“Mas alam ko ang Manila kaysa sa Seoul, sa to­too lang,” Sandara re­veals. She can’t sug­gest her top Seoul spots, but she says you must eat spicy rice cakes on the streets and Korean-style ribs! She also prom­ises to make a vlog on the best Seoul restau­rants soon.

8. Food stops

Our friends from Pen­shoppe re­veal that apart from her usual Jol­libee and Gerry’s Grill food runs, Dara loves Po­tato Cor­ner, too! Don’t you just love it when you share some­thing sim­i­lar with your idol?

9. What to ex­pect if a #Pen­shoppeXDara col­lec­tion comes out

“Krung-krung ako pero I love sim­ple clothes. I’m ob­sessed with white shirts! I want to draw on plain white ( and maybe black) shirts. Gus­tung-gusto ko ’yung ‘Dif­fer­ent is good’ ng Pen­shoppe ta­pos I’ll add dif­fer­ent draw­ings and writ­ten phrases,” Sandara says. We’ll def­i­nitely be wait­ing for those shirts to hit the racks!

10. Fa­vorite Pen­shoppe 2017 Hol­i­day Col­lec­tion pieces

If you haven’t no­ticed yet, Sandara’s cur­rent Pen­shoppe fa­vorites are its old school hood­ies —she even wore the one on her flight go­ing to Manila! But what’s not to love about these hol­i­day warm­ers? They’re cozy, sim­ple, with just a touch of color.
