BoA might do the whole Anime Convention performances like Kotoko did last year at AKON to be safe before she just goes out there for concerts.

She's treading very carefully around America. I also agree that she needs to work on her English and come out with more English songs so she can have something to work with.

Maybe she will be successful... maybe it's going to be like a... some kind of rush if she gets there, she might have something they've been looking for... without knowing... you know... you never know... (and that sounded demented! lol)

although Boa won the vote, i think not.
in America singers to get attention in the spot light has that sexy image and speak good english, especially for singers and for Boa? i think not.

for korean singers....i think:

YG family will succeed.

I personally would love for her to stay in Asia. Americans really don't welcome asian artist unless their english is good. If she do decide to go to America I hope she will be herself and not change to
please others.

i don't think the americans will ever welcome south-korean singers in their market due to the recent shootings at virginia

obviously, they have prejudices against south koreans now that the shooter is revealed to the public

I agree with the poll, though I don't believe BoA would achieve success if she attempted to enter the American market with english music. She's a really entertaining performer so she'd do better than any of the other Asian artists that have attempted to enter the American market, but unfortunately her accent needs a lot of work :thumbsup:

The point I really agree with though is that Hyori Lee is placed second to last. Despite what people seem to think is common belief, Hyori Lee wouldn't last a second in the American market :lol:. She tries too hard to be sexy (like Beyonce and others), and quite frankly doesn't compare to those artists she attempts to portray. Her songs aren't mainstream radio material here, either. They fall short of the standard in the genre that she does, even if that genre is part of the pop culture here.

That's my two cents o.o. Feel free to comment.

I don't think America is ready for a full Asian star maybe later...preferably before I die :D Just kidding, some artists tried to break in the US Market but failed. Tata Young, Hikaru Utada, etc. There english is good too, I can understand them crystal clear it's just that their albums didn't sell well.

I dont think Boa would be good for the american market... its cuz she's too... how do i say it ... reserved ? for the us market... i mean they're used to slutty outfits and cuss words every 2 lines... how're they gonna deal wif boa? unless there is an extremely high asian population in the us that likes boa... ><...
besides... its also unlikely that boa will go to the us... since her english is not that good... and lsm is against it. XD
ivy... iono.... i dun like her very much... maybe she'd do okay?
se7en... is probably going.. yg's music is more tuned towards the american market... so... i think he'd do fine ya
and hyolee unni.. hmmmm... she's top of industry at korea... does she really wanna go to us? and throw all her hard work away?
fly to the sky... didn't they break up??? ><
