Sandara Park (박산다라) recently opened up about her past dating history during a recent episode of KBS Joy programme “Love Naggers”.
The ex-2NE1 member dished that she used to date her co-idols in the past. At the same time, her confession also seemed to have indirectly denied rumours of her dating former label mate G-Dragon (권지용) previously.
In the episode, a story of a woman named Ko Min Nyeo, who’s stressed out because she is dating someone from the same office caught the attention of Sandara. Relating the story to her own experience, she remarked, “I didn’t date (someone) in the company before, but I went out with a colleague in the entertainment industry,” suggesting that she might have dated either an idol or actor previously.
“It was thrilling, we even exchanged our own signs (gestures that they only know),” the “I Don’t Care” hit-maker further recalled. When asked on whether everyone around them noticed that they were dating, Sandara candidly responded, “I don’t know. I think they did notice,” which made everyone burst into laughter.
MC Kim Sook then teased the Filipino-Korean beauty by saying, “I heard that you looked up a lot when you came out. Is there any (special person)….?” in regards to her current relationship. Sandara Park was so embarrassed that she couldn’t answer the question posed by the TV personality.
Meanwhile, fans have pointed out that Sandara’s stories about her past dating life seemed to debunk all the speculations surrounding her rumoured relationship with the BIGBANG member. Both of them are widely known for their close relationship, leading to rumours that the duo were an item.
Apart from that, several fans who shipped them together also found several “evidences” proving that they are in a relationship. This include their photos together, anecdotes, matching items, among others. Although and the agency repeatedly stated that they are not dating, there are still several fans that are convinced that the two Hallyu stars are seeing each other.
However, as stated by Sandara in the show, she revealed that she won’t go out with someone under the same label as her. In this case, her statement might have indirectly implied that she and the “Crooked” singer were not in a “secret relationship” after all.
The 36-year-old K-pop star has been very open, and at the same time, very careful when it comes to talking about her dating life. If you’ve been following Sandara throughout her 12-year-long career in the K-pop scene, she has been romantically linked with various celebs, but none of them were proven to be true.
