In Albay, 2NE1 hit the beach and visited different places for the shoot including the Sto. Domingo Church.
Fans were grateful to 2NE1 members especially Sandara for signing autographs and having their pictures taken with them.
On Sunday, after arriving in Manila from Legaspi City, Sandara Park visited ABS-CBN, her former studio. She was an ABS-CBN talent when she was still active as an actress in the Philippines.
