MANILA -- Sandara Park says she is just friends with TV host Robi Domingo, but is not closing her doors if a romance blossoms in the future.
In an interview on "Tonight With Boy Abunda," the South Korean star said she has been friends with Domingo since 2014. Although they are undeniably close with each other, Park said she was shocked when she found out that she is being linked to Domingo's breakup with Gretchen Ho.
"I was worried noong lumabas 'yang issue na 'yan kasi 'di ba dahil sa issue na 'yan baka masira pa 'yong friendship namin," Park recalled.
According to Park, she was in South Korea when Domingo and Ho parted ways. She found out about it on social media and talk shows.
When asked about her current relationship status, the "Star Circle Quest" alumna quickly answered yes.
"Hindi ko alam if it's a good thing or bad thing na single pa ako, pero yes, single pa ako. Right now I am very happy with my career and with what I'm doing," she added.
She said her former boss banned her from having a romantic relationship.
But now that Domingo is unattached, Park was asked if she would entertain the 27-year-old host if he courts her.
"Hindi ko alam ang sasabihin ko sa national TV, pero he's really cute. Noong first time ko palang siyang nakikita, sabi ko 'Ay, he's really cute.' And he's really good boy," Park said.
"Kung single siya and single ako, hindi ko rin alam kung ano ang mangyayari bukas 'di ba? So I don't know what to say now."
Park is currently in the country to promote her movie "One Step," which will premiere on Philippine cinemas on May 10.
