On Christmas Day, December 25, 2020, former 2NE1 member Sandara Park surprised her fans when she released a cover of Iñigo Pascual's song "Dahil Sa 'Yo."
Dara did the cover with iKON member Kim Jinhwan aka Jay.
In a Twitter post, Dara wrote: "Surprise!!!!!!! Christmas gift from Me & Jay [emojis] Dahil Sa’yo (Inigo Pascual) Cover by #DARA & #JAY from #iKON [emojis] hope you guys will like it!!![emojis] Merry Christmas!!![emojis] #DaraTV #DahilSayo #InigoPascual [emojis]"
In a separate tweet written in Korean, Dara said she and Jay dedicated this cover to their fans, the Blackjacks and iKONICs, respectively.
She wrote, as translated in English, "A cover song video w/ iKON's Jinhwan~ This song topped the Philippine charts. If you look at the lyrics, it's a song that you'd want your loved ones to listen to. It's a song for our Blackjacks & iKONICs! #DARATV Let's go!!! Merry Christmas! #DARA #JINHWAN"
Iñigo replied to Dara's tweet and wrote, "Ate Dara @krungy21 sobrang ganda po ng Christmas Version! Merry Christmas! [emoji]"
Netizens were also thrilled with the Christmas surprise from Dara and Jay.
"Jinhwan," "Dara," and "Dahil Sa'yo" even made it to Twitter's trending topics last Friday.
Dara has always considered the Philippines as her second home. She started her showbiz career in the country in 2004 via ABS-CBN's artista reality search Star Circle Quest.
In 2009, she made her debut on the K-pop scene as a member of 2NE1. The group, however, disbanded in 2016.
Dara is now focused on her hosting career and does vlogs to regularly update her fans.
The Philippines also has a special place in Jay's heart since he also lived in the country for some time. In an interview on Arirang Radio back in 2017, Jay revealed that he studied in Cebu for seven months before he made his debut as a member of iKON.
