How long have you listened to BoA?

13 June 2012 - 04:09 AM

Hey everyone! I have not posted in quite a while, so I thought I would make one for fun. Today marks 10 years that I have listened to BoA. As nostalgia hits me, I am just in awe of it at the moment. In my 21 years now, I never would have imagined to somewhat "grow up" with a musical artist and see how both I and them would change over the years. BoA will always be special to me for numerous reasons and I am really proud to just be a fan of hers for a decade now. Anyways I just wanted to ask the simple question of how long have you been listening to BoA? Do you remember the first song you heard from her?

Miryo - Revenger (REQ: English Translation)

05 February 2012 - 10:14 AM

Hi everyone! So I listened to Miryo's first mini album, so proud of her! Brown Eyed Girls solo projects have by far been one of my favorites as they have all been so different from one another. Anyways my korean is not THAT amazing, so I was wondering if someone could translate the track Revenger for me in English? I would really appreciate it!

Most Pointless Question ever...Xbox and Ps3 gamers out there?

22 June 2011 - 03:02 AM

Hi everyone Jpopluvr here! So before I go out into the regular music discussion forums and finally start my long process of giving as much as I can back to this amazing community, a question popped into my mind. How many of you here play PS3, Xbox, PC, or both? lol. I have been trying to find people to have friendly conversations with on Xbox Live or PSN or ANYTHING! I think it would be amazing to play with individuals who share a similar taste in asian music or interests as I do as well as to find the elusive and chill female gamer haha (only have 2 female friends and a sister who likes the video games). I play literally everything from Fable to Portal to Call Of Duty to Little Big Planet so yeah it just popped into mind if anyone else here on boajjang was thinking the same thing I was :P .

ZONE Comeback!

22 June 2011 - 02:48 AM

Hi everyone! Besides BoA, one of my other favorite artists, or shall I say band this time around has been Zone. If you look at my posting history, some of my first posts where of their music videos(back when I had all of their stuff completely and lost it in the most depressing hard drive crash ever lol). But it has been stated that they are coming back this year!!! I think what is amazing about this is that this is a band who fueled the flames for other all female pop/rock girl bands to start (ie. Scandal, Stereopony)and to have them back, even if for a short while, is going to be amazing. Is anyone else stoked?!?! I will post the article at the bottom of this post, and the original link to the article @ Tokyohive.com

"On April 1st of 2005, four-member girl band ZONE disbanded at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. But it looks like they’ll be coming together once again to hold a comeback live on August 14th and 15th at Tokyo’s Akasaka BLITZ.

Fans are especially excited about the live because the girls are fulfilling a promise when they sang their song, “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”. The song carries the lyrics, “Believe that we can meet again 10 years later in August…”, and true to their word, 10 years later the group is going out to meet their fans once again.

Unfortunately, MIZUHO has left the world of show business, so the other three members – MIYU, MAIKO, and TOMOKA - will be reuniting without her.

Not only will ZONE be coming together for the two special lives, but they’ll also be releasing a limited edition tribute album on August 10th called “ZONE Tribute ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”, which features other female artists doing covers of ZONE’s hit songs.

MAIKO commented, “Ever since the Great Tohoku Earthquake, we’ve been shooting around ideas asking ourselves “What is something we can do?”. As a result, we decided to comeback so we can give those suffering power through music”.

MIYU spoke about their promise, “This is the year that is “10 years later in August” that the lyrics of “secret base” bring up. Isn’t there somehow some kind of meaning to this chance…”. TOMOKA also expressed her joy in meeting with fans again, “I’m really looking forward to meeting with you all”.

Furthermore, the artists in the limited edition tribute album are girls from the same generation as ZONE. The songs will be specially selected by the members of ZONE themselves, and the group is also recording an answer song to “secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~”."

Your Reason For Loving BoA?

09 June 2011 - 05:25 PM

Well everyone, as most of you know BoA hit her 10 year japanese anniversary on the 29th of may. That day was a whole bunch of nostalgia for myself haha. Being a BoA fan for almost a decade has been an experience, and as all of us have artists we completely love and adore for certain reasons, I thought it would be cool to ask what you guys & gals think about BoA these past 10 years. It could be anything from experiences, to memorable songs, to the way she portrays herself to the general media, ANYTHING. For me, BoA has been a musical role model...and well...I will explain the rest later :P . Now for you! Why do you love BoA, and do you have any storied in relation to her and her influential music career ?
