Singer/actress Dara recently sat down for an interview with Tenasia following another where she discussed her transition from singer to actress.


Q: You mentioned how you wanted to become a post-Uhm Jung Hwa. What do you mean by that?

It's not easy to be good at two vastly different things. If viewers were to see my acting and say, 'Oh that's '2NE1's Dara,' then that means I'm not cutting it. When I see Uhm Jung Hwa, she is a legendary singer on stage as well as a true actress on screen. That is something I find attractive. It's not easy, but I want to be like that.


Q: Do you want to erase the '2NE1' label perhaps?

Ironically, that's not so. I don't want to forget it. I was actually living in tears for the past couple of months. When the group disbanded, it felt like breaking up in a relationship; that's how much pain I had to deal with. That's when I fell into a delusion. I was mentally shaken up thinking that we are strangers now and have no way of being together anymore. Now that I think about it, I still keep in touch with the 2NE1 members the most. Nothing has changed for the most part. Our job now is to cheer for one another.


Q: What is the difference between being on stage as a singer and as an actress on the big screen?

I recently stood on stage for the movie preview, and the CEO commented, 'I never saw you tense up like that.' It's strange because I never felt nervous while performing in front of thousands of people. I'm not sure what the difference is.


Q: Please share your new approach if any.

I actually thought of one - to think positively. Since I am an introvert, I tend to blame everything on myself when something goes wrong. So I received words of advice on how to keep a positive mindset.
