To be honest guys, BoA passed her peak and she entered the legendary league already. She is still being very consistent with her music release, activities and appearances. She has fan meetings, tours, new singles and albums as well as more shows participation. I am really happy as a fan, really, knowing that BoA is almost 30 yo and having 15 years of career. These things that she is doing cannot be taken for granted. For many singers out there, they release a lot fewer stuffs than BoA especially after long years of career, they just don't really care and want to relax. BoA, on the other hand, is still working hard and producing stuffs for us to enjoy.
But yes, low sales is sad. Unfair promotion is sad, but there is little that we can do about it, so why do we need to argue or rant? Can you make other people buy her CDs when they dont like? No Can you make SM promote BoA the way you want it to be? No. Actually, honestly, I am happy with all the promotions she got so far from SM.
When this happened, why do we all forget the success that ONLY ONE had? That song was written and composed by BoA too, and sure it was good and "public friendly"... Why saying that BoA does not know what to choose for her album title track, or composed something that is not going to bring her success? I am sure BoA knows WAY would make a public friend title track, but I believe BoA chose KML because she is proud of it. She has this unique taste of music, which is influenced by the Western music, so it showed in KML, and I personally like it a lot. How many K-pop idols out there can actually compose a different and complex song like KML like BoA did, or they just compose some generic and public friendly song?
Like she already said on her Instagram, she does not care about the haters, so we should not too. BoA is happy to perform KML on stage, and fans, we should rejoice with her and support her. Does not she get enough hate from the anti-fans already?
I can put myself into BoA's shoes. After all the hype and praises for WAY, she would expect her comeback album to be a big success. She should have felt great disappointment too. I feel for her. I hope she will be strong to continue what she has started.
I would like to follow up what MrP said, when she played safe in Japan (releasing cute/generic/public songs like Tail of Hope, Masayume Chasing etc,), we fans also complained why she did that? Why she kept releasing generic songs...and now when she did KML, we complained why she did not try to follow the maintream and release public friendly/generic song to suit public's taste... It must be hard to please her fans, BoA thinks...
