Sandara Park and fellow K-Pop idol, Jay, of iKon surprised their Filipino fans by covering Iñigo Pascual’s popular song.
On Christmas Day, Friday, Sandara, or more commonly known as Dara nowadays, uploaded a new video on her channel, which the K-Pop Pinoy fans really enjoyed. It was a video of her and Jay singing the 2016 Pinoy hit song “Dahil Sa’yo”.
The 2NE1 member can also be seen holding a sketchbook, and words like “Blackjack”, “I (heart) u”, and “Mahal Ko Kayo” were written. “Blackjack” refers to the fans of 2NE1.
Meanwhile, Jay wrote the word “iKONIC”, which is the term for their group’s fan club.
Iñigo, who is also a K-Pop love, commented on Dara’s uploaded video. According to Piolo Pascual’s son, the duet made his song much better.
“Jay and Ate Dara, making this song so much better... Merry Christmas! (emojis)”
One day after it was uploaded, the video got 368k views already, with 100k likes. Many netizens were impressed by how the two Koreans sang the Pinoy song. There were even some who were suggesting a collaboration among the three artists.
"Sana kayo ni Dara duet din parehas super galing niyo kumanta (heart emoji)" netizen Rein Carolino commented.
"Nigo x Jay collaboration plssss.." Anisa Natangcop said.
Some netizens also mentioned that Sandara, despite being a South Korean national, is a Filipino at heart.
"Nakakatuwa ka naman Dara, Pinoy at heart ka pa rin. (emoji)" Iam Faith commented.
"She's a Pure South Korean but Dara have a Filipino heart (heart emoji)" said another netizen whose name is in Korean characters.
Both 2NE1 and iKON were under the management of YG Entertainment. However, the two groups were disbanded way back in 2016. YG Entertainment is the same agency that handles other popular K-Pop groups, including Blackpink and Big Bang.
Sandara Park became popular in the Philippines when she joined “Star Circle Quest”. She, later on, established her career as a Kapamilya singer and actress before she rose to fame as a K-Pop superstar in South Korea. Meanwhile, Jay is also known by his real name Kim Jinhwan. Before becoming a part of iKOn, he also lived in the Philippines for a while to study English.
A few days ago, Sandara flaunted her dinner when she bought a Filipino meal from a Pinoy restaurant in South Korea. In a previous report by KAMI, Ai-Ai delas Alas commended the K-Pop artist for staying humble and kind.
