In Topic: Should BoA try again in the USA?

07 March 2010 - 01:58 PM

I feel like BoA's management just used her U.S. debut as a stepping stone to help her career in Asia...I hope this isn't so. I know BoA is not the sort of person to give up so quickly.

Just look at the Wonder Girls - they were successful because they continued with what worked for them in Korea, they used the same song and dance and just got it translated to English. They brought something new and unique to the U.S. and it worked.

Utada is another example. She's a talented singer and her unique voice and style comes through beautifully over the radio. Like Rihanna, you can tell who's singing even if you don't know the song.

However, BoA's debut didn't let her uniqueness shine through. Her management hired an American composer and digitally modified her voice - and besides, their promotional efforts were a joke, seriously. Wonder Girls went on tour across the country with a well-known group; BoA on the other hand visits a few radio stations and clubs. It just doesn't make sense for them to expend so little efforts on promotion. I really think BoA has what it takes to succeed here - I always have thought so - but it takes some real effort and commitment which she is capable of, but I don't think SM and Avex gave her a fighting chance.
