It wasn't an easy start for Sandara Park on her career. She was first met with criticism and disappointment before blossoming into a full-fledged star and becoming one of the biggest names in Asia.
One of the most heart-wrenching comments Abunda gave to Sandara at the time were "wala kang talent!" and "binili mo ang text votes mo!", which didn't bring her down but used it to fuel the fire inside her.
Sandara displayed maturity and humility that earned her praises from her fans and from Boy Abunda as well. Her success is mirrored by her personality, and it's safe to say that Abunda's comments brought out the best in her and carved her way up to superstardom.
Being a judge for Pinoy Boyband Superstar, she completely understands a judge's perspective especially from Abunda's standpoint when she was a contestant and that is why she's successful.
