I like the b-side track so far as well. BoA sounds cute, and like...herself. I haven't heard her sound like this in a while. It sounds like a fun and cute song. If someone who understands Japanese could give the title name and what she is saying in the snippet in English! O.O

Hyori is 35 and yet I don't see much people commenting that she's too old and needs to retire.
The thing about Hyori, though, is that she's...hot. She's Korea's 'Queen of Sexy', and as long as she's still hot, sexy, and young looking, no body cares how old she gets. And, seriously, Hyori is pretty good looking, especially for her age, which is why no one complains and I don't blame them. She's one of those lucky few who may actually look even better as they age, especially for being a woman, so people are impressed; not bothered.
BoA, on the other hand, is seen more as a performer along with the other idols. Hyori is in music as well, but the other half of her career is her physical appearance. Although BoA is attractive, too, her overall image is more of a serious, mature performer. A soloist who has been in music since she was a kid. Her main category is performer/artist/idol. And she's not the only one, so over the years she's going to get competition. And not to be rude, but BoA's aging is much more obvious than Hyori's. And though BoA is a legend, it's easy to be labeled as "old" in the music industry as other newcomers come along. Hyori, on the other hand, is a hard one to replace. Not everyone is as sexy as she is. It takes a certain look and a lot of credit to become a sexy icon. It also takes your own personal appeal that matches with that sexiness to appeal to others as sexy and hot as a staple. Basically...its's very rare to be in Hyori's spot and she's still at it, even at 35, and that's cool. Not that it's not cool for BoA to be where she is at her age, it definitely is, but it's different when you're a music artist VS. a sexy icon.

What's sad is how South Korea isn't doing anything about their PS addiction, how they're letting PS ads infect every corner, wall, building, and subway of SK until it infects the minds of the citizens. It's so disturbing, and what's even more disturbing is that they aren't aware that it's disturbing. They're proud of it. They like it. If I was one of those PS surgeons, I would be ashamed of myself. I would feel like a monster. I would look around me and just shut down every day until I quit. But, hey - a job's a job, right? I'd rather secretly murder everyone than my own family, so Imma keep doing this, even if it means everyone around me, and not just anyone but my own people, and hell it's people; humans, turn into barbie dolls. Heck, one day my own family might turn into them, if they haven't already.
What does the government think of this? Oh, wait, it's those job applications that want and "need" people to be more attractive, more "American" to be exact. They need to start putting limitations, and those damn PS surgeons need to start having integrity.

It's like spray-painting over the Mona Lisa...WHY?
My thoughts exactly. I would KILL to look like BoA, ESPECIALLY when she was younger! If she did indeed get something done, she really didn't need to. And it's even more surprising considering who she is as a person, appearing self-empowered and women-empowered. Above anyone else, BoA would be the most surprising celebrity to have gotten surgery done.
And about her music - a family member of mine asks me every time they hear me listening to her, "Isn't she getting old? Shouldn't she have retired by now?" And it makes me cringe every time because I like her music. I, too, am fed up with all this electric music that's coming out. The only genre that should be busting out electric stuff is techno and trance, the genre that actually does it right. I loved "Only One" also; it was different, in the nicest way. BoA might be old, but she's still gold because of it. You can't compare those who are in only for the 'now' to someone who will always be 'in'. BoA's a legend; you can't beat a legend.

Before I go into what I think I'd just like to say something. I know we're not meant to be talking about this here but I have to say it would be nice if we could do so even if it's just once. I can't speak for anyone else but I'm the type of person who when given the opportunity to talk about something that's generally considered taboo I'll say my piece and then unless it's absolutely necessary I more than likely won't bring it up again. Conversation and debate is healthy after all. I also think it'd be nice to talk about this sort of thing with reasonable people for a change rather than a lot of the people on the allkpop forums...
I personally think that she did get surgery but the non permanent kind because one minute she'll look like herself, the next minute I'll hardly recognise her but then she'll go back to looking like herself again. I know that sometimes that could be to do with make-up but over the past few months I've noticed something about her that is very noticeable when it comes to people who've had some sort of surgery done to the face. She's been lacking the ability to smile properly. Normally she has this big beautiful smile but over the past few months her smile and overall facial expressions have been very stiff.
THANK YOU! Why CAN'T we talk about it? So that it doesn't become just another quickly closed "BoA had surgery" thread or shot down post? I'm tired of not talking about it because I feel like it needs to be said at least once also. Besides, being a good fan is like being a good friend: it's being able to tell your friend, "That makes you look fat," when they put on something that makes them look fat.
To those people who always respond, "Oh, it's her body! Why is it so bad?" that's true, but the other truth is that besides this topic on BoA being taboo, SURGERY is also considered taboo. Just the way people ask, "How can you act Black?" DUH! By being the stereotypical BLACK behavior and personality that black people are shown to have: ghetto and cool, until you burst their bubble and they get short-tempered and ratchet on you. And it's not that all black people are like this or that this is the definition of being a a black person, but we all know that description is what "acting black" means. People know this, but they try to hide it from themselves just because they don't want to be "bad" and be a "stereotyper" or because they're just plain hiding from what they know deep down inside. The half truth is that stereotyping is bad - but the other half is that they're stereotypes for a reason; because most of the time, it's true. So stop denying what we all know - it IS her body, but generally speaking we all feel somewhere inside of ourselves that surgery is "wrong". It's one of the underlying universal human beliefs that we all share with each other that's unspoken. Why do you think surgery is such a big deal to people all the time? And that excuse about her not having the time? That excuse has been run down by every k-pop fan in history and continuing. Other K-pop idols are just as busy, but we all know they obviously found the time to get surgery done and find some sort of excuse or make-up to cover themselves behind.
As much as I love BoA and tried to mask myself into believing she could never do surgery because she's too much of a dignified, sophisticated, strong-willed and beliefs kind of iron woman, self-feminist (see where I'm going with the "we all know surgery is wrong" thing?), I no longer lie to myself that it could be a possibility that she has had work done, or does work. Does that mean that I think she got surgery? No, but I'm not gonna mark her as innocent either. We'll NEVER know. What started to bother me was when I noticed how her jaw line minimized and how her chin got thinner during "Only One". Maybe she got surgery, maybe she lost weight. Either one is highly possible. But, WE'LL NEVER KNOW. And if she did get surgery, it's okay.
And as for her appearance for the reasoning of this thread, I think it was just her hair and the way her make-up was done. I mean, when was the last time we saw BoA in bangs, and at THIS age? Those changes can really make a difference. But WHO KNOWS? Maybe she did do something to her face. When idols and/or celebrities start looking oddly different away from the make-up, there's no reason not to question whether or not they got surgery, especially since this is Korea we're talking about, and people question it because we all know that it's considered a wrong act. So for this once that we can actually talk about it, please stop hiding from the truth.

...everyone has been bullied at least once in their life and sometimes they become a bully at least once themselves.
SO true! I've been there, done that; both shoes.
Though I dislike what they did to BoA, it makes me like her even more because having been in that situation, she's even more relatable. The hair thing is prob like superlita said. I read a Japanese manga where a younger year was lectured by an older year for long hair. It's probably a requirement to have short hair and when they saw she was growing hers out, they were either jealous and trying to keep her in line.
There seems to be bullying issues in Asian schools! I see it in dramas all the time. What's their problem, lol.
