In the latest episode of her show, Video Star, Sandara Park amazed viewers and co-hosts when she used the Filipino language as she was about to lose in Korean during an acting challenge.
In the improv challenge, Dara had to defend herself from a heartless mother-in-law who belittles her. When she was about to lose the argument, she shifted to speaking Filipino, which astonished her scene partner.
“Ano po sinasabi niyo? di ko kayo maintindihan. galing po ako sa Pilipinas kaya ‘di ko alam” Dara said during the scene.
[What are you saying? I cannot understand you. I’m from the Philippines that’s why I don’t know]
Dara’s turning to the Filipino language impressed netizens with her ‘queenly’ act.
A netizen even said that Dara represents us Filipinos every time our brain glitches when speaking foreign languages.

Sandara saying "ano po sinasabi niyo? di ko kayo maintindihan. galing po ako sa pilipinas… "
