Posted ImageOn August 29th, SM entertainment announced the launch of their American division, SM Entertainment USA. This follows YG and JYP's aspirations of bringing Korean artists into the American market, possibly moving BoA one step closer to USA's music industry.

One person cautiously said, "It is highly likely that there will be an official announcement as soon as discussions with BoA's Japanese management come along. BoA will delay her comeback in Korea to prepare for her advancement to America's market. The possibility of this being confirmed in September is high. They will announce it at least within this year and the chances for advancing towards America next year are quite high."

On the other hand, SM entertainment has consistently kept their mouth closed. One official said, "There is nothing yet to be revealed. Challenging the world's music industry, with her popularity established in Korea and Japan as her background, is a given basic strategy that hasn't changed."

Keep an eye out for BoA's 2009 calendar as well. It comes out October 25 and will cost ¥2,400 (~US$22).

I'm not gonna get excited over this until an official announcement from SM. But it's nice to see they're establishing an American division over there :D

It scares me in a way, I'm not quite sure what to expect, I can't quite imagine BoA in the US, but if it happens, it happens.
It's a bit worse not knowing either. We've all known not to place too much trust in articles that just pop up, but it's becoming a bit more real with that photo; I haven't seen it before, and she looks absolutely stunning/sexy/hot in it, so it'll be interesting if she decides to go with that image in the US.

This could be BoA's chance. It seems like she needs something new in her life, and although LSM might not have been too excited about it, he knows that if she wants to do it, it needs to be done right. I just hope the company can give her what she needs in order to succeed; it'll take a lot of money, connections, time, effort, etc.

It's great news!
But shouldn't they give poor BoA a break?
Isn't she over worked enough?
:D

But it'll be great to hear her in the USA singing English songs hehe

This is good news for K-pop fans in USA.
I'm sure BoA is going to be in this SM Entertainment USA.
I still want the Korean comeback though.

Thanks for the news!

Alright, she might be coming to the US. While I am going to fully support her all the way, I don't think her English is good enough. I heard Key of Heart (English) a few days ago and I have to say, she has a really thick accent. No matter how cool her dance moves are, no matter how sweet her voice is, I doubt she's going to get far with that accent. Even if she does, I'll bet she'll have people mocking her all the way.

Good luck BoA. I'm waiting to hear more news about this =D

Is this supposed to be a good news?? I somehow feel upset,i'm dying for her korean comeback this year or next year,but it looks like she will be bust with her Japanese activities and US debut.
Anyway,I hope she will be successful in US market ^^ and I'm also waiting for it
thanks Sue ^^

I think this US debut is more a long-term vision for BoA..The first step, is getting the SM USA established in the US first..
In the mean time, BoA could make a Korean Comeback..:D
Thanks for the information, Suejinners

I agree with mr.numbers D: .
I'll support her and everything but I don't think she'll make it over here.
Unless her English improves by a lot I don't think she'll make it.
But yeah, I wish her luck if she does but I really wish she'd do the
korean comeback first =_=

I'm mixed on this. One one hand, it'd be great if she breaks into the US market, because it would be easier and cheaper to buy her music and support her.

But...I'd much rather prefer a Korean comeback, and I don't think her English is good enough. I mean, I love her to pieces, but she still has an accent, and I just have a feeling people will just make fun of her instead of enjoy her music. =___________=

We'll see how this plays out.
