MEGA May 2016: Sandara Park


Whether it’s standing in front of a full-length mirror or staring down at a front-faced camera, MEGA lifts the veil and explores self-obsession in this month’s issue. Debunking myths and misconceptions of vanity, we uncover the truth behind selfies as a case of self-love with stories. While it may sound crazy for some, it sure is a beautiful realization of confidence, just like K-Pop superstar, Sandara Park. Headlining the ME, ME, ME generation and Penshoppe ambassador, Sandara Park  traces her newfound sense of self from the Philippines to Korea and now, the world.

Coming in different forms, we run the gamut of obsessions from the video game and chain link crazed Louis Vuitton, as well as the latest (and juiciest) news on tussles between fashion folk. Feminist, indulgent or a business-savvy? We thresh out Kim Kardashian’s naked selfie in a think-piece for beauty. Speaking of nudity, we reveal how you can reveal your best bodacious self with the latest slimming and contouring hacks. Finally, read on as an independent filmmaker makes a plea for you to see Lav Diaz’s 8-hour opus, Hele sa Hiwagang Hapis.

Already obsessed? This is but the tip of iceberg. Grab the latest issue of #MEGAmagazine to see more crazes, indulgences and must-knows, now available in bookstores and newsstands, or tap the link in our bio to download the e-mag now!
