2NE1's Dara talks to 'Kuya' of Pinoy Big Brother (Video 1)

Posted: 17 May 2014 02:00 AM PDT



2NE1's Dara visited again the most famous house in the Philippines 'bahay ni Kuya' (Big Brother's house) on May 15th.

She visited the house in 2006 in which she and comedian Jason Gainza (former housemate) had a task to get four eggs from the housemates without the latter knowing their existence. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful and got the punishment of having a sleep over inside the house. They could exit the house when they could convince the housemates to give them two eggs. And they did.

Dara was invited again by 'Kuya' (Big Brother) to enter his house, but now to have a short visit only. She was in the confession room at first, and she talked to 'Kuya.'

On the video, Dara was wondering where 'Kuya' is. Kuya said, "I'm just here, just in front of you." Dara replied, "Hmm, I don't see you." Kuya answered, "You're still a joker." Dara said, "Hmm, not really. I'm still the same---krung krung."

'Krung krung' is a Filipino colloquial word for crazy. This is not used to degrade the person, but this is a positive term for persons who are over jolly and are willing to do crazy acts just to entertain others. That's why Dara got her tag as the one and only 'Pambansang Krung Krung ng Pilipinas.'

Dara expressed that she's a little bit nervous saying, "...because the housemates are new, I don't know them and their personalities. Do they like me or not?" Kuya assured the K-Pop star that his housemates are kind, and that they will welcome her with open arms.

Dara look around the room with amusement saying, "It was 7-8 years ago when I first entered here. This room is nice. I hope this will be mine." Kuya offered saying, "Do you want me to ship this to you?" Dara said humorously, "Okay. I might stay here (in the house) forever. That can't be, we have shows."

Kuya asked Dara on how many countries they still need to visit, and she replied saying Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and hoping more countries soon.

Dara's visit to PBB house trended number one both in the Philippines and worldwide. #SANDARAinPBBALLIN
