<div><img src="http://img502.images...iewnews7hx.jpg" alt="" align="left" style="float: left; clear: left; margin: 4px;" />Prior to her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, BoA did a short interview in which she discusses topics relating to her voice acting role in 'Over the Hedge', potential acting career, and love life.

<i>Q: How does it feel to be on the red carpet?
BoA: I never imagined I would be attending the Cannes Film Festival. I'm very nervous.

Q: Why did you choose to dub in 'Over the Hedge'? Singing and voice-acting are two different things.
BoA: When I was first offered the job, I was hesitant because I wasn't confident. Nonetheless, I thought this was a good opportunity [to showcase her acting skill] because this film was created by the creators of Shrek, which I love. One of the things that made dubbing hard was that the characters' mouth moved according to the English script, and I had to match it with the Korean script. I already watched the finished product, and I'm worried my part might appear unnatural to audiences.

Q: You also dubbed the Japanese version of Over the Hedge. How did that go?
BoA: There were many obstacles because Japanese isn't my mother tongue, and casual conversation in Japanese and dubbing in Japanese are very different. It took twice as long to dub in Japanese as it did dubbing in Korean. I almost gave up during the process.

Q: If you were to try real acting, what kind of style would you prefer?
BoA: I'm very interested in acting. I've received a lot of offers, too. I will probably try it in the future, but as of now there's no immediate plan. I liked Jessica Alba's part in 'Honey'. I also would like to try historical film such as 'The King And The Clown', and Princess Fiona in 'Shrek" sounds interesting too.

Q: Boyfriend?
BoA: It's time to have one... I'm too busy... Not interested just yet.</i>

FIRST POST! :thumbsup:

She did both the Japanese version AND Korean version? DUDE, she's amazing. I can't wait for that movie to come out on DVD. I want to buy it and listen to BoA... ^^; Thanks for sharing the news!

^^It is "it's time to have one".

thanks for the translation of the interview...didn't know that she also dubbed Jap version...The answer to the last question is interesting... I guess she doesn't want one now b/c she wants to have all her focus on her career (singing and future acting). She's still young so dating is not as important as her career for now...If she's happy, then we all are happy right?...:thumbsup:

To answer the arising questions, BoA has stated in the past that she wants a boyfriend, but her schedule and career simply does not permit one. Though the 'not interested yet' at the end does throw things off a bit. :thumbsup:

"It is time to have one.. but I am very busy.. so I am not interested just yet."

"Sounds" is misspelled in the fourth question.

That makes more sense krjeami. Probably hence the "..." they have between her sentences. That's how journalists make you see what they want to see.

But she's so talented. Doing both Japanese and the Korean. Very interesting! But I'm not surprised, since why should they switch voice actors if one can do both?

Wow! She did both versions - Hope they'll have both the Japanese and Korean audio on one version of the DVD so that I can get a copy.
