Welcome to DatJoeDoe Show's Joe's Blog!! This week he's teaching us about 2NE1's Dara and sharing your K-Pop opinions...

Dara was one of 2NE1's most beloved members. She has many idol fan boys including EXO’s Chanyeol and 2PM’s Wooyoung (to name a couple) but how much do you know about this quirky, fashionable star?

Let’s learn a little more about Dara!

1. Dara was a popular celebrity in the Philippines before she debuted with 2NE1. She appeared in movies, dramas and even had commercials!

2. She loves to prank people by stealing their phones and putting a picture of her face as the wallpaper (she can take my phone anytime haha)!

3. Dara was born in 1984 which makes her 33 this year (she still looks 20).

4. If someone doesn’t reply to Dara’s texts, she’ll delete them off her contact list. Once even a 2NE1 member got deleted! 

5. She’s speaks four languages including English, Korean, Filipino and Japanese.

6. Out of all the 2NE1 members, she was the only one who ate ramen (she’s lucky - she never had to share haha)!

7.  Dara’s pet name for her little brother, Park Sang-hyun (Thunder) is ‘Dog Poop.' ~Classy~

K-Pop Opinion

Every week on my Facebook page KPOPOJOE I ask for your opinions. This week I asked:

Have you ever seen your favourite K-pop group live, and how was it?

Here are the top comments:

"I have seen Got7 live at their Sydney fanmeet. Got7 was incredible, getting to see my idols that close (I did get Gold standing) and laughing with them was so much fun. When I got the photo op I was lucky enough to not only get to have a conversation with Yugyeom, my bias, but he also then hugged me for the photo. Definitely an experience I will never forget." - Simon Wakeford

" I did! I got VIP tickets for the EXO'rDIUM in Mexico. It was simply beautiful. The guys looked very happy and energetic and they were really nice to all of us. They all look more handsome in person tbh. We all enjoyed the night with them. They are really amazing, funny and talented. It has been the best day of my life." Ilse Hun

"The amazing Got7 and VIXX at the Toronto K-pop Con, the gorgeous Chaelin in LA, and stupidly talented Bangtan Boys in Anaheim. Every time has been a better and better experience. Got7 and VIXX interacted with the audience a lot and it was kind of intimate, for a concert. JB had even been hurt at the time but was amazing to come perform and sing for us anyways. CL was even more beautiful and talented in person. Seeing her was life changing; I kid you not. And BTS... they put on such a professional, airtight show. It was one amazing performance after another that ended in a beautiful anthem of fans singing and confetti softly falling around us. I can't possibly describe how amazing these shows were and how lucky I feel to have seen them." - Amber Robertson
