Well, I used to pronounce BoAjjang wrong...I still kind of do now xD! Even though a bunch of people say 'Its Bo-uh-jung' but I say 'jang' instead of 'jung'...=/;!

I still do this a lot...It's hard getting used to the right way of saying it.

When I first heard BoA, I thought she was Japanese too. It wasn't until I started listening to her a lot that I found out she was Korean. :thumbsup:

i used to think the song VALENTI was actually called VALENTINE but was just called VALENTI for short by fans. found out about her album was actually called valenti just valenti.
but can i ask? what exactly does BoAjjang mean? is it in korean or japanese? cause this have been on my mind for quite some time. lol

^ Valenti is Portuguese or something for "pure" or something, I think. I forget. And BoAjjang pretty much means BoA's the best. And yeah, I used to call Valenti "Valentini" too. :P

The one thing I always notice it people spell her name Gwon, I don't know the rules in korea or other contries when it comes to last names but it bothers me...

It can be spelled either way, Kwon or Gwon. For that matter, BoA is often pronounced "PoA" in Korean, because an initial B has a harder sound. :P

No, it's Korean--it more or less means BoA's the best. If you watch BoA's Korean perfs, esp. around the No. 1 days, you'll hear the crowds chanting "BoAjjang! BoAjjang!" :P

my friend said to me...i heard that BoA's REAL NAME IS KWON/GWON or something like that..

*slaps friend*!!

coz she probably saw something like Kwon BoA..and thought the name was written like in english, first name then surname or something o.O

Oh, yes...I thought it was jAng for the longest time
Also, I was positive that Boa wasn't her real name whatsoever :notworthy:
