Sandara Park (박산다라) recently made an appearance as a guest on KBS Joy programme called “Love’s Intervention”, where she spoke up about her former home label YG Entertainment’s 5-year long dating ban rule and how it affected her past love life.
According to the former member of the now-defunct group 2NE1, she’s been in “non-tact (non face-to-face contact) relationship” even before the Covid-19 pandemic. In case you’re wondering why, the talented star is way too busy with her work commitments!
In regards to the entertainment company’s “no dating” rule, the 36-year-old singer dished that she was once scolded by the management team for being in a relationship, back when she was a trainee.
“My manager took away my phone. And after I made my (K-pop) debut, there was a 5-year-dating ban rule implemented,” Sandara told the MCs. She then admitted that she abided by the rules, stating, “I really didn’t date because they told me not to.
The 36-year-old is now more open to dates these days. Dara said, “Only recently have I made up my mind to date actively. All I need to do is be more assertive. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to my ex-boyfriends,” making everyone on set burst into laughter.
