[singlepic=1139,250,250,left]I’m not really familiar with Joseph Bitangcol so I was quite surprised to read a Korean news item about him. Apparently, he said in an interview that he’s happy with Sandara Park’s (now DARA) success and calling her as his “jeon yeoja chingu” (Hangeul: ì „ ì—¬ìžì¹œêµ¬) or “past girlfriend”. He also said that they keep in touch from time to time.
In a media interview yesterday, July 15, Dara vehemently denied that she is Joseph Bitangcol’s ex-girlfriend. She said that almost all talents in the Philippines are involved in a concept of what is called a “loveteam”. This is how she and Joseph were related.
Sandara Park and Joseph Bitangcol were together in a reality show called “Star Quest” in 2004. This is where Sandara first gained popularity with her famous wave and “mahal ko kayo” greeting.
Personally, I admire Sandara’s commitment to her fans in the Philippines. She has never forgotten where she came from. In fact, if you ever see the 2NE1 special on MNET she constantly mentions the Philippines. Before her launch as a member of the girl group 2NE1, she would post messages on her thread in Pinoyexchange in Tagalog!
Whether Sandara and Joseph really had a relationship before, I think the guy should have some pride in himself by not riding on Sandara’s popularity.
