I think Don’t Start Now would def be considered a mini album these days, but back then, I don’t think Korean music industry really had any such thing.
I remember Finkl (Lee Hyori’s group) had a 2.5 album come out around the same time period so I think SM considered Don’t Start Now as a 1.5 album as well. And Miracle and Shine We Are do not feature original Korean music - rather Korean versions of her Japanese work so that’s another reason I assume they consider this upcoming release her “first” official Korean mini album.
Also omg I’ve been replaying today’s Keyword BoA for the One Shot Two Shot preview. It sounds amazing already!!
