Dara Is ‘One Step’ Closer to Philippine Cinemas + Block Screenings

By  | 

Sandara Park is going to be back in Philippine cinemas!

Former 2NE1 member Dara, known to the Philippines by many as Sandara Park, is making a comeback to Philippine cinemas with the Korean film One Step.

Dara has been a popular face in Philippine movies through her lead and supporting roles in Bcuz of U, Can This Be Love, D’ Lucky Ones and Super Noypi. She also had cameo appearances on Volta and My Ex and Whys.

The film was initially released in South Korea on April 6, 2017 and will be locally distributed nationwide in the Philippines by VIVA International Pictures. The film is directed by Juhn Jai Hong.

Dara plays the lead role and shares the limelight of her official comeback in the big screen with co-stars Han Jae Suk, Cho Dong In and Hong Ah Reum.


After a car accident, Si-hyun (Dara Park) is left with no memory of her past and lives with Ji-won (Hong Ah Reum) whom she met at the hospital. Si-hyun has colored hearing, an illness that visualizes sounds into colors. The mixed array of colors she sees with music makes her dizzy, so she protects herself by wearing a set of giant headphones.

One day, Ji-won’s brother Woo-hyuk (Cho Dong In) hears Si-hyun humming a melody in her sleep. He writes it down and gives her the score, hoping it will help recall her past.

Meanwhile, Jee-il (Han Jae Suk), a washed-out songwriter chances upon this score and offers to find the melody Si-hyun continues to hear in her dreams.

They embark on a healing journey as they collaborate to complete Si-hyun’s melody.


Colored Hearing is a type of synesthesia in which head sounds automatically and involuntarily evoke an experience of color. There are no causes that have been clearly identified, but in some cases, past experiences can influence this condition.


Dara herself has extended warmest gratitude to her fans in the Philippines by sending signed ‘One Step’ movie posters.

“My friend from Star Magic is coming here (to Korea) next week. I’ll give these posters to her so she can give it for the block screenings,” she said in a tweet.
