Filipino star Sandara Park is to make her acting debut in a Korea drama, “The Return of Iljimae.” She will appear as Rie, a ninja who meets with the show’s main character, Iljimae, in Japan. She will demonstrate her stunning martial arts moves in the upcoming episodes, which will start airing on February 11th.
Park’s representative, YG Entertainment, said that Park has plans to appear on two more Korean dramas this year. She is also a member of Big Bang’s female version. Her singing career in Korea will be launched after her drama appearance.
Park has been a top singing and acting star in the Philippines. She signed a contract with YG Entertainment in 2007 to start her career anew in Korea. She was first introduced to the Korean public through singer Gummy’s music video in which she kissed Top, a member of today’s hottest group, Big Bang. She grew up in the Philippines when her family moved there when she was 10 years old.
