Previous Star Circle Quest runner-up, Sandara Park aka Dara took the 88Rising Coachella stage with her K-Pop group, 2NE1. This surprise performance became one of the highlights to Weekend 1 as the group hadn't done a live performance since 2015. The K-Pop group that consists of members Dara, Bom, Minzy, and leader CL who also performed solo on the same stage brought back the nostalgia with their hit, "I Am The Best."
Dara began her career with Star Magic in 2004, starring in films and shows alongside her love team partner, Hero Angeles. Before moving back to South Korea in 2007, she also ventured into music releasing a self-titled album. It became the only album by a South Korean to be certified platinum by the Philippine Association of the Record Industry.
Since CL was gearing up for her solo set, she extended the invite to her bandmates. According to Rappler, "CL wanted to get together [her] strength and [their] strength, before it was too late." The reunion made many fans' dream come true while letting the group thank them for sticking by their side all these years.
All members were excited to get everyone back together since disbanding back in 2016 and after releasing their final single in 2017. Dara shared how happy she was to spend several days with her bandmates while preparing for their Coachella performance.
Could this mean that there's a possibility for more music and performance from all of the ladies of 2NE1? Fingers crossed hoping there's more to come.
