Dara expresses frustration on how she tends to be funny in the Philippines but not in Korea

Dara claims she's very funny on Filipino variety shows.

On the December 11 airing of MBC Every1's 'Video Star,' Dara showed support for her close friend Ryan Bang and took part in a phone interview. 

MC Park So Hyun asked, "When are you going to come on the show?" Dara replied, "I can anytime but I'm shy, so please get people I'm close to (on the show with me)."


She added, "I'm good on variety shows in the Philippines but in Korea, I'm no jam (not funny). I don't know what the problem is." Ryan Bang agreed and said, "Dara noona is funnier than me in the Philippines."

Dara is way more comfortable in the Philippines so her adorable, charming side comes out without even trying. Also, Tagalog is her 3rd language & she's totally fluent in it but once in a while, she says things that are unintentionally hilarious. On the other hand, there's a big pressure to be funny on Korean variety shows so sometimes, celebs force themselves and it ends up unnatural. If only she can be more confident in herself and relax..

Korea loves corny slapstick comedy. Or repetitive catch phrase.

I sympathise. I was funny in the city, but in the countryside people don't know what to make of my jokes.

and still pathetic, when you try to act nice and "sympathise", when such a pathetic hater obviously doesnt even have any friends...thats why you love to hate around a lot here on innocent idols out of jealousy...

Our country is more forgiving to celebrities so her personality shines bright.

maybe it's because of the differences between different cultures. what may be funny for filipinos may not be funny for koreans
