The Singer BoA
Posted 8/23/08 , edited 8/23/08
A multilingual singer. She knows Japanese and Korean fluently. She can sing in English but can't really understand it, she'll just memorize the words if it's in English. She's also an actress and a model.

What do you think of her?

Any other singers who are similar to her?

Namie Amuro is the nearest similar artist to her. Avex marketed BoA the same way they did on Namie. Though I think Namie is a better performer LIVE than BoA.

Recently, BoA has the same style as Namie....the outfit being the most similar.

i didnt know BoA is an actress? which drama/movie did she act in? is she good? oh, and BoA do speak English, however, with a very very very strong Korean accent. i've once viewed one of her interviews many years ago and it was conducted in english throughout. all her 'F' and 'PH' pronunciation were pronounced with a 'P' sound. but yes, she still do understand english and do speak english. she sang in chinese too! only once, i think.
i like her. she's good. =) though she was once slammed for lip synching in Korea but hey, all korea singers do so!

Namie Amuro, Rie Fu...and now, BoA!

I like her (Duvet was a good song) but somehow she seems more of a manufactured item to be sold.

This is a korean sitcom BoA was acting in years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUOhvg9qSwU

If you listen to BoA's recent songs, her English is much better than it was then. Hmm, BoA has chinese versions of her songs, "My Name", "My Prayer", "I'm Sorry", "Sara"... I forgot if she has other chinese version songs. ^^;;

She doesn't speak English. It's all memorized. I know that for a fact. She can only speak conversational English.

Though, I'm not too sure what movies or dramas she's been in. Right at this moment my Mom's working with her with her English and how to speak on camera. That's why I know a little about her.

And I thought she was about like 5'7? Is that short? Lol.
