Park has been acting for a while, having started her career in 2004. She appeared in the film “Bcuz of You” before ever signing with YG Entertainment and becoming a member of 2NE1.
Her first k-drama role was in “The Return of Iljimae” in 2009. She followed that role with a few cameo appearances and a leading role in the web drama “Dr. Ian.” She recently appeared in several movies in either supporting or cameo roles, by herself and, once with the other members of 2NE1 in “Girlfriends.”
Sandara will play as the lead in the remake of “Begin Again,” originally an American film starred by Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly which did very well in Korea. It became the most watched independent film of all time in South Korean theaters, so it is not surprising that a remake is being planned. Keira Knightly played a songwriter that helped disgraced music executive Mark Ruffalo regain interest in his dream. He helped her career and she helped him get his life back together.
In the Korean version, Sandara Park will play a songwriter who also works part time at a convenience store. She is trying to capture a melody that appears in her dreams. The male leading character will be a broadcast director who helps her capture that melody and realize her songwriting dream. Han Jae Suk, who was last seen in the drama “Witch’s Romance,” may play that character.
“One Step” marks Dara’s first lead film role in South Korea. Release date is yet to be confirmed. For now, we’ve got some sweet release from YG Stage featuring 2NE1’s Dara and WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon’s on ‘Pygmalion’ Fashion Film
