SANDARA PARK, “MY PRESENCE IN 2NE1 WAS LIKE KKAKDUGI… I WAS DAUNTED”
Sandara Park revealed her honest thoughts about 2NE1’s disbandment.
On the 18th, JTBC’s “Talking Street (As I Say)“ filmed an episode with guests Sandara Park, Seo Janghoon, and journalist Im Gyeong Seon.
Sandara Park, who had a talking busking in Hongdae said, “I’ll tell my honest thoughts today, after 2NE1’s disbandment,” she said, opening her busking with those words.
In 2009, the year of their debut, Sandara Park performed on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” and told of her experience, “At that time, Yoo Hee Yeol sunbae-nim said, ‘CL-ssi is in-charge of rap, Park Bom-ssi is in-charge of power vocals, Minzy-ssi is in-charge of dancing, and is Sandara-ssi in charge of image?‘” she revealed.
She continued, “I felt like something I wanted to hide was revealed, when we got back to the dorm, I hid and cried.” After hearing this, MC Yoo Hee Yeol was flustered.
Sandara Park, who showed the most unique personality among strong members, revealed her heartache, “At that time, I thought that my existence in 2NE1 was like kkagdugi,” she said, revealing her honest thoughts as she was moved to tears. (T/N: kkagdugi is literally Cubed Radish Kimchi, but it can also be slang for someone extra or a supplementary)
Sandara Park continued, “I lost my confidence little by little and I felt daunted and intimidated. At that time, I thought that my existence wasn’t necessary in the team. But every time I felt that, the members always set out to encourage me and I was able to calm my heart after,” she said, expressing her gratitude to the members.
On that day, Sandara Park who participated in talk busking was asked by one citizen, “Until now, you’ve been called 2NE1’s Sandara Park, what would Sandara Park like to be called in the future?” was the question. Sandara Park answered, “I would still want to be introduced as 2NE1’s Sandara Park,” showing her deep love for 2NE1.
On the other hand, Sandara Park will also talk about 2NE1‘s disbandment as one of the “talk buskers” in the episode. It will be broadcast on the 25th, at 9:30PM on JTBC’s “Talking Street (As I Say).”
Gah, I guess
it’s time for me to step in as expert on all things Korean!
Just a bit of
background info on Korean Saunas:
It’s basically an indoor escapade to wonderful, beautiful,
and pampered skin. Through gender-segregated doors, you get naked, wash
yourself, then go soak at the pools that are moderated at different
temperatures. After a while of soaking, you can scrub your skin clean of dead
skin cells with an Italian hand-scrub cloth (which hurts by the way) or…hire an ajusshi/ahjumma to scrub
your body for you.
Then once you’re all polished and your arms are all sore
from the heavy scrubbing, you dry yourself off and dress in the uniforms
(oversized clothes, really) before heading off to the co-ed room where you can
eat food and sweat the toxins off in the jjimjilbang
(dome-shaped sauna). Special hard-boiled eggs and sikhye (sweet fermented rice drink) are a must have for
replenishing energy after sweating a ton in the saunas
It’s also a wonderful time to bond with your friends and/or
family members. And since the R.F.A group is family, I found this super
this is rather long and I just got too excited writing this out haha
be super excited to go to the sauna because, “SUPER RFA BROS BONDING TOGETHER”
had lots of experience going to the saunas because his dad took him there many
times when he was little.
The last time he went was before he left his
family to start university.
practically jumping because he’s loving the idea
UP BECOMING VICTIM TO SAEYOUNG’S PRANKS
practically sobbing because Saeyoung WOULDN’T STOP TEASING HIM
Saeyoung stop messing with the poor thing!
aside from that, he’s really glad that the R.F.A is finally experiencing
something that’s not work for once!
wonders about the girls and Zen’s constantly reminding them that they need to
take their time.
also leads the boys to start a back-scrubbing train
he’s scrubbing a random old man so that he’s not just receiving the treatment.
the bois go up to the co-ed for food and snacks, Yoosung offers to buy
hard-boiled eggs and sikhye (iced
sweet rice drink) for the group to enjoy
he immediately starts peeling some eggs to give to MC and Jaehee
ENJOYS SWEATING THE TOXINS OUT IN THE JJIMJILBANGS
also bets Saeyoung a box of honey butter chips if he can stay in the hottest
JJimjilbang (called the Bulgama) for at least ten minutes.
ends up losing the bet but he lasted for nine minutes.
hair is also pretty long so he brushes his bangs back and ties it up into a
mini-pony tail while he goes into various domes.
some experience going to saunas but it’s very rare for him.
afraid his beauty might lead other men to become jealous of him.
unashamed of showing off his beautiful body to the rest of the RFA members
is forcing back tears at this point because omg Zen is too gorgeous
an ajusshi scrub his beautiful body
free of dead skill cells.
gets scrubbed raw (he totally misunderestimated the ajusshi’s strength)
and starts tearing up while Jumin’s telling the ajusshi to scrub harder
But he ends up thanking the ajusshi for
all his work even though his pale skin is covered in splotches of red and pink don’t
worry they disappear in a few hours
THE RFA MALE TRAIN: Zen loses a bet and is forced to scrub Jumin’s back. He
tries to scrub as hard as he can (in a way he secretly enjoys the fact that he
can take revenge on Jumin’s previous shenanigans)
the co-ed, Zen is making sure that his skin is well cared for and pampered. This means face masks, lotions, toners, those weird face roller massage things, etc.
loves sweating off in the jjimjilbangs,
especially in the salt mineral rooms that help detoxify and softens his skin.
when he leaves, his skin is especially glistening from his sweat and he
can’t stop bragging about how soft his skin feels lol
I also mention that he wears his usually rat-tail hair into a man-bun?
when MC places a lamb head towel hat on his head, his heart melts a little
to mention the other female patrons in close proximity
even recognize him and asks for autographs (luckily the place wasn’t too
he’s sweet not to refuse and turn them away? Omg this guy
face it, he’s never stepped foot into a Korean sauna before. So he’d be super
interested by the way the “commoners” bathed.
be asking about the function of saunas and the particular sauna culture in
Korea. Also he considered renting out the entire sauna for the R.F.A members
had it not been impromptu. And V probably would have opposed the idea of
ruining a spa day for the civilians.
it like the saunas in Finland?”
scrubbing yourself wastes energy…better have that ajusshi scrub your body for you.”
THE RFA MALE TRAIN, Jumin is scrubbing Yoosung’s back while Zen is scrubbing
his (much to his dissatisfaction) and snickers when Zen comments on how he’s
unable to scrub dead skin cells off Jumin’s back.
I have a regular bathing regiment that includes whole body exfoliation. You’ll
never find dead skin cells no matter how hard you scrub.”
if my precious skin breaks, I’m suing you.” (it’s a joke tho)
admit it but really likes the bonding moment with the RFA members.
though the gears in his head are turning rapidly to process the environment
around him, he’s enjoying the rare moment everyone’s having together
the co-ed, he’s badgering Jaehee with questions about the facility, how much
profit Korean saunas create, the promoting of the sauna culture, etc.
the end, he’s forcefully shoved into a dome surrounded by old grandpas who are
just laying down against the woven straw beds and are sweating bullets.
doesn’t think this isn’t as bad as dealing with clients and managed to engage
in a brief conversation with the older men
out the old men are super sweet talking about their grandsons and family
the opportunity to try “commoner’s food” even though he’s somewhat hesitant
he tries it anyway because of MC (secretly he wants her to feed him haha)
gone to saunas with V a few times before but haven’t gone for years after that.
you can imagine how much dead-skin cells he scrubs off
and pranks Yoosung a LOT.
FREAKING TACKLES THE POOR BOY, HOISTS HIM UP AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE COLD POOL.
and when Yoosung’s washing his hair in the shower booths, Saeyoung’s squirting
more shampoo above the running water so Yoosung’s just…endlessly trying to
rinse it all off.
gets fed up with his brother’s shenanigans at one point that he ends up teaming
with Yoosung to toss him into the hotter pools for revenge.
the co-ed, Saeyoung’s still messing up with Yoosung.
takes a hard-boiled egg and immediately smacks it against Yoosung’s head to
crack the shell
the funniest puns that has the entire RFA laughing out loud
SUPER CUTE IN THE LAMB TOWEL HEAD
bets with Yoosung on whoever could stay in the bulgama the longest without passing out from dehydration
both equipped with a towel drenched in cold water to cover their faces
Yoosung loses the bet, Saeyoung trudges forward and…doesn’t come out for the
longest time even after ten minutes passed
in the RFA is panicking omg why isn’t he coming out?
worries that Saeyoung might be turning into pizza (seriously it’s that hot)
is crying as Jumin starts to call the people in the facility for emergency
out that Saeyoung is okay, he just happened to meditate a bit and was close to reaching
he’s moved out of the bulgama,
everyone just starts hugging him. MC and Yoosung are sobbing uncontrollably
Is honestly touched that his favorite people are worrying about a doof like him
eventually gets treated to Korean shaved ice and is allowed to devour the whole
thing to restore his energy
gone to saunas when she was very little so the experience is more of a fond,
nostalgic memory of her family.
tears of joy when she hears of the impromptu trip because HOLY SHE NEEDED THAT
TIME TO RELAX AND TAKE HER MIND OFF HER DUTIES
really enjoying her time soaking in the pools and scrubbing off the dead skin
is super gentle when she scrub’s Jaehee’s back and Jaehee’s just crying again
because OMG BLESS THIS PURE CINNAMON ROLL
really impressed with the layout and interior of the sauna and could tell that
this particular establishment is of high quality
the co-ed, Jae-hee and MC both meet the RFA bois in face masks
end up buying more so that everyone gets a face mask to wear
several screams from kids passing by oh no
sneaking side comments every so often about starting a cat spa business to
which Jaehee happily replies, “Mr. Han, let’s not think about business matters
when we’re here to relax. It will sour my mood.”
since she’s in such a good mood, she offers good advice on the Korean spa
culture and adequately informs Jumin about everything she knows.
super flustered when MC makes and places a lamb head towel hat on her.
and Jaehee take many selfies together (Jaehee especially of Zen when he’s not
smiling a lot?
of all, she’s generally really enjoying the day because she can relax and spend
more time with MC (she’s not lonely anymore!)
out of sauna feeling super refreshed and energized to tackle anything
(including Jumin’s ridiculous cat projects)
wonders if he should offer her more breaks/trips to the sauna with MC since her
productivity increased by 1000% the next day
