Today is 17th of March, the beautiful day where BoA, who is leading the artistic life, debuts for the third time.
2000 in Korea, the next year in Japan, debut in America when she's 22
I'm thinking, BoA is so amazing! "BoA's debut" is like this : Even though she's singing a different language without being too good with it, while promoting she still needs a translator with her, but not just it, she stills practice the language diligently. Living in a different country, while learning and understanding the culture and way of living, she's slowly improving...
I really didn't want it to sound so simple.
Not being able to speak the language well, the loneliness and insecurities she feels, the time difference, the food difference, pressure and insecurities, so many more that makes people unable to take it and wants to give up, but, BoA has never said a word of wanting to give up!
Come to think of it, debuting at 13, and debuting in the unfamiliar Japan the next year, even thoguh she wants to play with her friends, wants to fall in love, but BoA uses hardwork that everyone is amazed of to work towards her goal, it is so touching!
Talking about it, when i first met BoA it was backstage of 2002 Fuji a-nation.
BoA was 15 then.
To greet the other people, and while she's feeling nervous, waiting backstage (with the other singers)
BoA had her headphones on and started learning in this noisy backstage...
From the bottom of my heart I was so amazed, learning that BoA achieved success because of this. Of course, this is the reason why the fans and our staffs love BoA~
7 years just passed like this.
BoA's japanese is already pretty good, even though she still gets prank on and teased by our staffs sometimes (laughs), but the still "everything must be perfect" BoA.
And, English that is very problematic to us, BoA learnt it diligently, and she can already speak so well in one year time.
The company's overseas representative, after hearing "Eat You Up", praised BoA on her pronunciation.
Even though I only know things about music, but listening to USA DEBUT ALBUM"BoA", I can feel how BoA, throughout recording, wanted this album to be of quality and did her best.
Now, BoA is promoting her album in America as a new artist, I will support her with this new challenge.
Being a staff, I can only be by her side by planning her activites well, and watch BoA make her third debut.
BoA, congratulations in breaking into America!
