The South Korean singer made her debut in 2009 as a member of 2NE1, a group that became one of the best-selling girl groups of all time before disbanding in 2016.
She is one of the most popular South Korean celebrities in the Philippines, where she is known as Pambansang Krung-Krung (National Crazy Personality). Compared to the South Korean singer BoA who also had great success abroad, she is considered an influential figure in the Korean Wave.
She launched her first EP, Sandara, in 2004, which sold over 100k copies, making it the only South Korean album certified platinum by the PARI (Philippine Association of the Record Industry).
She appeared in many Philippine films between 2004 and 2007, including Bcuz of U, for which she was awarded the PMPC Star Award for the 21st year.
Park made his 2NE1 debut in 2009 with the track “Fire,” which immediately gained the group popularity. In 2009, she released her first Korean single, “Kiss,” which featured 2NE1 member CL.
Since the group’s hiatus began in 2015, Park has focused on her television career, co-hosting the South Korean variety show Two Yoo Project Sugar Man and being a judge on the Philippine talent show Pinoy Boyband Superstar.
Furthermore, she starred in several web series, including Dr. Ian (2015), We Broke Up, and Missing Korea. She won Best Actress at a Korean web festival for the web series Dr. Ian.
After 2NE1 disbanded at the end of 2016, Park renewed her contract with YG Entertainment. After her contract with YG expired in May 2021, she left the company. In September 2021, Abyss Company announced that Park would join the agency.

In addition to her native Korean, she is fluent in English, Chinese, and Japanese. In 1993, Park moved to Daegu with her family. Park’s father could not support his family, so the family moved to the Philippines to restart Park’s career in 1994.
Initially, Park felt lonely in the Philippines because she was not fluent in Filipino, the national language, and her pronunciation was not good.
During an interview, Park said she tried her best to correct her pronunciation to one day become a celebrity, something she had dreamed of since hearing K-pop boy band Seo Taiji and Boys in 1992.
