Hmm I thought it was just BoA's natural personality to be shy and reserved at first then is fun once you get through those walls. That's how my personality is like; one of the reasons I admire her so much.




#2274376 BoA Chinese version songs

Posted by moonrabbit on 17 April 2014 - 08:45 AM

I mean BoA & SM did give China kinda a trial, but we all see how that ended up. I think the reasons that labels gave up on China:
1- The copyright infringement there is way too complicated to handle.
2- China has the most population on earth, therefore they don't really need to 'expand' their music to other countries, say, if only 1/4 of Chinese population buy Jay Chou's album, he would sell over 3 millions copies , 3 times more than BoA's sales in her peak all over the world.
China is a big market to conquer for any label company, but it's also the most challenging one. China's music market is just closed, they are too content with their music to accept any other music in different language.

Unfortunately, BoA doesn't sound good when she sings Chinese, imo. Hence, I'm kinda glad that she dropped China :P

BoA doesn't sound good singing in Chinese because she's not confident in her Chinese and trying to pronounce everything correctly. If she actually soaked up the Chinese culture like she did with Japanese culture then she would sound better.

 

My mom doesn't understand BoA's Chinese when the Chinese version of "I'm Sorry" was playing on my laptop. I can't really tell because BoA's Chinese is Mandarin Chinese and my main language is Cantonese. Even as a Chinese person, I'm not interested in BoA singing anymore Chinese songs unless she tries harder at learning the language than just using China as another country to get more money.

 

BoA's style suits America more anyway.

This is another giveaway, not the same one that I already posted before.

It's too bad none of the songs from her American CD made it into the movie. All of them were dance tracks.




#2271590 New Single "Shout It Out" 2014.02.26

Whoa. If she's doing good on views now, can you imagine how much views she might get by the time she promotes this single? She is one of the few artists whose J-pop releases I still look forward to. Go, BoA!

^^ Looks more like outfits the cast of Living Single or the girls on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air would wear.

BoA looks great in that picture. I would like a new Christmas song from her. Hopefully, SMTown will do a Christmas album again.


#2260485 BoA's Hair Style, Bangs vs No Bangs

Posted by moonrabbit on 26 September 2013 - 08:51 PM

I like BoA with almost every hair style except for that mullet hair that she had during GoT period. My favorite hairstyle of hers is when she has it like in the Only One music video. It just suits her so well.

Ooh, dating bad boys. BoA, you go girl!


#2229262 I LOVE BoA!

Posted by moonrabbit on 12 February 2012 - 12:39 PM

I like all these new artists or currently popular Kpop artists but BoA will always be my favorite. I understand your love for BoA. I keep wondering why people are always saying people around the age of mid or late twenties are old. Do they understand what the definition of old is? I feel really insulted since I'm near BoA's age. Anyway, whatever people says about BoA, you should just ignore them.
