Singer Sandara Park confessed to having a fear of flying
Sandara Park and Solbi appeared as guests on the Dec 8th broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “Cultwo Show”.
When Sandara Park mentioned that she recently went on a business trip to Taiwan, DJ Kim Tae-gyun asked, “Do you have a fear of flying?” Sandara Park replied, “I’ve had a fear of flying since I was a child. There were so many overseas schedules that at one point, among flight attendants, it was well-known that ‘When Sandara Park is on board, she needs special care’. I’d cry if it shook, and I couldn’t even eat.” She continued, “They held my hand and gave me a doll. Like soothing a baby, they gave me a doll and even cooked instant noodles for me. Sometimes, the plane captain came out to explain. They said, ‘There’s no safety problem in shaking.’“
Sandara Park shared, “I found out the cause later. After counseling with Dr. Oh Eun-young, I learned that it is because the plane leaves for another country. It’s a welcoming thing, but it also means parting. It was due to the fear of leaving my beloved family and relatives when I immigrated to the Philippines at a young age. Now, I’ve overcome it a lot.”
Solbi said, “I love taking flights. I enjoy it from the moment I go to the airport. Many ideas come to me while on a plane. It feels like being in a private space.”
Special DJ Bbaek Ga confessed, “I find it difficult to endure long flights. When traveling long distances for over 10 hours, I don’t sleep the night before. I fall asleep when departing and wake up when arriving. It feels so good.” Sandara Park empathized, “I’ve used that method a lot too.”
