The contest was difficult to judge since so many of the essays were great. In fact I had six essays that I felt were all contenders for for first place. I wish we could send a CD to you all, but we cannot. There can only be one winner, and after several readings of the finalists by both me and JWu, we agreed on one winner. There are also five other essays that deserve an honourable mention, these five will be able to download three high quality videos of their choice in our exclusive filelist.
Congratulations to Nengshin for his winning essay!
The Honourable Mentions go to:
Daniel Lie (kamashita.eiji)
April Tan (shenjinapple)

Yes, this was the very first line I’ve heard from that Japanese-Korean Singer with a very angelic voice and magnificent dancing abilities. This talented woman has startled me and left me hanging with amazement. And you know who is she? She’s the 18 year old girl popularly know as BoA. Real name? BoA Jjang….
As a first time BoA fan, my first mission was to know all about BoA from her biography, discography to the latest news and countless pictures of her. And what is the best place to look for this information? Of course, the world wide web. And there it is, the first site I had visited dedicated to the angel BoA – Boajjang.com.
Very eager to be familiar with BoA, I’ve even mistakenly thought that Jjang was her surname and searched the net for other sites for a singer named “BoA Jjang.” Of course, there is only one site was available, it was Boajjang.com. I was not unhappy not to find other sites dedicated to her, do you know why?
Boajjang is such a great site where in, we can learn everything regarding BoA and can find pictures, lyrics and even the latest news and downloads and other more cool items about her. It is a complete site for a BoA-addict who is up to date and can’t get enough of her. It also has a great forum where I can chat and can have friends with other BoA fans from different places and countries.
And it changed my life. Because of this forum, I’ve known a lot of people especially here in my country. I’ve met a lot of them and became friends with them where in we share thoughts and experiences being a BoA fan. I’ve learned from these people that there is so much more than being just an admirer of BoA. It is a sense of giving BoA the strength she needs to go on and make other people happy through her music. This is why Boajjang is unique.
Boajjang.com is not just a site that gives fans what they need. It is a community of people who are concerned of supporting their one and only idol by letting other people know about her great talents and skills through the complete information provided to a web surfer who wants to know about BoA. It also serves as a link between BoA and her supporters because it lets BoA fans express their gratitude and thanks to her through their forum and through the BoA Project 2005. And as a true BoA fan, I definitely agree, that this is the best idea that will inform her about her fans not only in Japan, Korea and China, but also countries outside Asia and countries all over the world.
That is why I love Boajjang.com. It is because of this site, now I know who’s that girl with an angelic voice, she is Kwon BoA.
