BoA kicks butt! and thats all I have to say....
♪♫You're still my number one, kimi to deai.....♪♫

all around favorite english BoA lyrics:
You still my No.1
You're all I'm thinking of
The one I can't deny
I guess you know the sore built inside
I love this song
This all you said and done
You still my No.1



Kudaranai, could you also list her singles? I can get the list for you if you'd like

Kudaranai 08-19-2008 06:19 PM

Mandarin version of LISTEN TO MY HEART sang by ..someone, I don't know the name. But I heard she's a professional singer, just not very popular.

If the flyer is indeed legitimate, the concert will feature some impressive stars. Top artists such as DBSK, Big Bang, In Soon-I and SE7EN are sure to headline the show alongside BoA, while newcomers including KARA and Wonder Girls will also attract a fair share of K-pop fans in the area.

Is this BoA's first step towards the anticipated U.S. debut? Not likely; this concert is clearly aimed at Korean audience, so expect her typical My Name-Girls on Top routine.

U.S. Debut? how did i not hear about this?? or is it just rumors and speculation?


NEVERMIND i found something about it... so incase anyone didnt know

BoA and Se7en are lined-up for their US debuts this Spring.

It has been known that BoA is currently preparing for her US album, which is targeted for a release in May while Se7en will drop his US album in 2-3 months.

Se7en started working on his US album in 2006 with famous producers Mark Shimmel, Rich Harrison and recently, with Darkchild. According to a message posted by YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk last February 1, Se7en’s album release is drawing closer.

If Se7en’s US project was made public, BoA’s was a made in a strictly confidential manner. It has just been recently known that producer Peter Rafelson, who has worked with Madonna, is participating in BoA’s album.

2008 seems to be the year for Koreans to advance in the US market for aside from the aforementioned singers, JYP Entertainment’s Lim Jeong Hee and G-Soul are also slated for a US debut this year.

Looks like i might have to do what i did with utada's album.. i was broke then too, but i ended up buying 14 copies.... (i know I=Fail)

Kudaranai 08-19-2008 10:42 PM

Well the caps aren't concert merchandises, but rather just a line from Ed Hardy caps :<

Yes, the BoA-to-USA has been around for a while, though she hasn't done anything.

There is a rumor about a new single in October. But rumors about BoA pops up once every 3 days..so.. we can only hope.

Globalastro 08-19-2008 10:49 PM

lol, yeah, know what you mean, after researching it a bit, i havnt seen anything about any us debut since february.... :(
and on yesasia, the only new release listed to come out is the new avex compilation (which i need to catch up on, i have 3 of them already [official ones])

BoA Possibly One Step Closer To USA? - BoAjjang Forums

oh my DX!

Globalastro 09-06-2008 03:18 PM

i hate to say this, but along with many boajjiang users (from what i've seen), i'm a little iffy about her coming here, i hope she worked on her english and isnt going to sing "WHIP ME!!"
and have lyrics that include "I LOVE THIS SONG"

{edit} as for the Bad Drive video... "holy crap"? is that the best you can come up with? LOL

the dancing in that is spectacular.

BAD KUDA!! YOU SENT ME TO A PAGE WITH A LINK TO A VIDEO CLIP WITH EDISON.... ::melts:: HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PAY ATTENTION TO BoA, WHEN IM TOO DISTRACTED BY HIS TOTAL CUTENESS AND ACTING CUTE AND EMBARASSED AT HER NERVOUS LAUGH!!!!!!

ok, end rant.. clip over...(man, i really wanna watch it again..... and why hasnt he released here yet... ugh) LOL

{edit} well, i guess the sex scandal could have something to do with it... LOL... wow, stop following an artist for 4 years and BOOM

he hasnt even made a debut in the official US movie scene yet though, has he (if that even works... stupid bbc coding i can never remember, and i totally forgot grudge 2 and didnt realize dark knight).... oh well, back to BoA... i still think she needs some work, but she has gotten better

Kudaranai 09-10-2008 09:37 AM

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH >_<!!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Globalastro 09-12-2008 09:41 PM

can u post a link to the boa usa website pwease? and i found the teasers on vtap... i smell another easy breasy (korean)esy with more publicity. I'm not sure how well the 'eat you up' titles gonna go over and the stoccato in treaser A makes me think its gonna hit the club charts and not much else because i cant see that getting too much radio play :(

but i have my fingers crossed that i didnt get enough of a listen in the teasers and they even started to grow on me. but just remember, even if it hits the top of the club charts it can still flop... (utada had 3 on club charts, Devil Inside actually hit the number 1 spot and people still have no clue who she is.

i kinda hope that if and when (as rumors have it) her 2nd US album will come out, and if boa makes it, that hopefully utada will follow suit and give up sone of the origionality on the singles and go back to her RnB roots.... because detroying the stereotype of asian singers will make it easier for them both and other artists to cross the 'great divide'
