Dara talked about the difference in promoting solo versus with the members of 2NE1.
In an interview with Ilgan Sports, Dara shared her experience while going solo. She said, “It was a big change for me. Especially since 2NE1 disbanded and I’m no longer able to promote with the members by my side, I felt the differences in many small ways. Like the interview today, it had always been with 4 members, but today I came alone. In a way, it’s something that can be overwhelming to me.”
When asked if she feels lonely without them, Dara answered, “I was lonely and sad about a few months ago. I was afraid because I had to do it alone without the leader. I was always hiding behind CL but I’m in the process of changing. I knew a situation like this could occur because we can’t always be together till when we’re grandmas. Right now, we are promoting separately but I know this is not the end.”
Next, Dara was asked if things were different by herself without 2NE1 members when she recently filmed for ‘Running Man’.
She answered, “It had become more comfortable, I think because my personality has changed. In the past, I just used to stand next to my members because I was timid. ‘2NE1 TV’ or self-recording programs were okay but I found it very awkward when around a lot of people. But this time, I talked to the camera director first and even showed an ugly side of me. I don’t think I’ll be shown very pretty but I had fun.”
