A pretty Korean singer whom although she does not bear any credit to writing her own lyrics, has achieved things in her nineteen years that most people
will never achieve.
The girl fluently
other languages beside her native
tongue of Korean; Japanese, Mandarin
BoA is so popular in Asia, that she has two seperate official websites. One based in Korea
and one based in Japan.
She also has a bunch of unofficial English websites created by her fans in America and Europe.
Once of BoA's recent Japanese single
releases, 'DO THE MOTION' was so popular that it surpassed 200,000 copies, taking the top spot on the weekly Oricon
Chart, and made BoA the first
non-Japanese Asian to reach number
one in over
a decade. Her album
sales have also broken official figures for biggest seller. BoA's first album released
in Japan has recorded an order quantity of 1.2 million
copies as did her recent greatest
hits 'Best Of Soul'.
She is a star renoun throughout the whole of Asia and totally owns the stage next to most other Asian pop singers
She has also opened the door to other Korean singers
to come across
to the Japanese market, eg;SE7EN
, DBSK. Her popularity in Japan has also
been seen as a positive aid in rebuilding past broken ties between the two nations.
Her dancing is unmatched and she can actually hold
a note without
the aid of voice sythesisers. Amazingly she performs
live whilst conducting complicated dance routines; even for crummy tv appearances.
BoA has also
done tons of modellling including a shoot for MAYBELLINE in New York.
Despite the fact
that BoA is only
fully exposed to the East
Asian market, she is still often compared to Britney Spears
for her overnight dominance and similar
'pop princess' countenance. This is questionable however
as BoA is not half
as slutty. That is just the tip of why BoA is not Britney Spears
but I'm sure you can form your own opinion on that seperate matter.
