MANILA, Philippines -- Despite her current status as a member of the girl group 2NE1, Korean pop star Dara Park -- or Sandara Park to most Filipinos -- remains in touch with her Filipino friends and fans.
In her official Twitter account, Park regularly tweets about the Philippines -- and in Tagalog, at that.
On Tuesday, Park said she got to watch new DVDS including the comedy hit "This Guy's in Love With U Mare," starring Vice Ganda, Luis Manzano and Toni Gonzaga.
This prompted her to send a tweet to Manzano. "Napanood ko this guy's in love with u mare! Kakatuwa :) koya d tau pwede maging loveteam! Magkapatid nalang tau~," Park wrote.
"k, magkapatid tapos? Isip ka story, pwedeng k-pop star ako tapos ikaw fan na patay na patay sa akin tapos mas sisikat ka pa!" Manzano replied.
"Mix natin ang stories natin para maging isang magandang movie! Haha cnu magiging leading man ko? Cnu bagay sakin?" she tweeted back.
Park started her showbiz career in 2004 when she finished first runner-up in the Philippine reality talent search "Star Circle Quest," which was hosted by Manzano and Jodi Sta. Maria.
She then went on to star in a number of TV and film projects in the Philippines.
In 2007, she left for South Korea to pursue a showbiz career there.
But despite her international success, Park still has a soft spot for the Philippines such that her Twitter conversation with Manzano actually got her excited about the prospect.
"Sana magkakatotoo ang imagination natin someday," she told Manzano and singer Christian Bautista on Twitter.
