Fans of everything kimchiland have been treated to a bevy of public appearances lately - last week, we had actor Park Hae Jin in town and this week, 2NE1’s Dara graced our sunny shores for a brief visit as the face of Korean cosmetics brand moonshot.

She, along with YG Entertainment label-mate G-Dragon of BIGBANG are the newest ambassadors of the brand, with products named after them. Her male counterpart was unable to make it for the whirlwind promotional tour, which saw Dara pop by Kuala Lumpur the day before (Apr 21), as he is with his group in Kobe, Japan for a series of fan meetings.

Fans turned out in full force, with some even carrying huge alphabet balloons that spelled out her name. Breezing in to the media launch in a casual, girl-next-door look, Dara spoke entirely in English during the short session, which wrapped up in under five minutes.

Unsurprisingly, there was no mention of her group, which has recently gone through former member Minzy’s departure. The last time 2NE1 visited our little red dot as a group was in 2014, when we played host to both the group’s solo concert and the YG Family Concert.

While Blackjacks might have to wait a little longer to see the trio back in town, Dara’s attentiveness and affable nature during her short but sweet visit was a definite bright spark in their lives. Until next time! (Or if all else fails, it’s time to hop on the next flight to Incheon.)
