As a lot of people have already mentioned, the MV looks really cheap ._.
I don't mind the song and the dancing is awesome...but in all honesty, they should stick with the Korean version of the MV. The American one is horrible and totally unoriginal. o.o;

Personally, I prefer her Korean/Japanese songs; which is why I tend to stick to Asian music as opposed to Western...
It'd be interesting to see how her debut is taken in the U.S music industry- I truly hope she does well...
She needs to improve on her English though- I could barely make out what she was saying. But good luck BoA!

i'm being harsh by saying this but she's gonna fail.
i mean, utada debuted a couple years ago and she got no where
boa is like a grain of sand compared to utada (like seriously, utada earns so much money that she's ranked at japan's most earned singer along with ayumi hamasaki and b'z)

After watching the teaser trailer for the song "I'll eat you up." I made this bulletin on myspace. I think it about sums up how I feel about this.

"<I explained who BoA is here, I've deleted it so you don't have to read it. You all know who she is.>

Anyway, LIKE I SAID, THAT TIME HAS COME (debut is in October of this year). I've waited yeaarss for this to happen.



AND THEY GIVE ME THIS SHIT? What the hell? The songs BoA is coming out with SUCK and are totally different from her music style.


Her voice has totally been computerized to hide her Korean Accent, which takes away A LOT from her voice. It's ridiculous. And what the heck is up with the incredibly shitty lyrics? I can't put into words how disappointed this makes me. D: Five years of waiting for this debut. FIVE.
And I get this shit?

ugggh.


DON'T BELIEVE IT'S SHITTYNESS? GO HERE: BoAAmerica. com and listen to "I'll eat you up" :| Worst music ever."

better short lived fames than no fame at all right ? :P

Gotta give her a break yeah? I think her voice is also digitalized... yes...
But its her first debut, they've gotta make sure she makes an impression.

As to the lyrics.. yes its very crappy.. but thats about all hip hop songs are that way, so america doesn't mind the crappy lyrics.

The positive side is that her dance moves are totally awesome and that would caught some people's eye. On top of that, the music is digestible and it is catchy. Whether people "catches" it and love, or hate it, depends on her luck.

Future is to come, this is jst the first step to make sure she makes an outbreak. Once she has garnered more western fans, more great things are to come from it.

But for now, its her first debut in america (officially, mainstream) and they gotta do whatever it takes to make it :/

AS FOR THE VIDEOS! the korean version is good as well as the english. Except that the english video version is kind of lame.. it reminded me of britney spears video (the beginning). THe korean music video is a better approach :>P

WTF?
the korean video is good, but why is the american one so tacky? such bad visuals.
its wierd...

& no way.
that song is not good enough to get radio time or be a club dance hit.
what they did to her voice is whack, & i think any one of us could have produced a better single, style, & image for her debut!

still, best of luck!
boA fighting!

*you know what, if they use that korean version- people here would like it.
the visuals are rough & edgy & still cute. the song is kinda spears/pc dolls.
hmm.

idk why they did this to her!!!!

Not all Hip Hop songs have crappy lyrics, and when I heard these my mind was totally blown, I know American Hip Hop tends to have bad lyrics, but this really took the cake.

Yes.. its something you wouldn't expect from BoA. I too, didn't expect something like that.. But then for me, she finally makes some poppy music again.. unlike "The Face" album era which was horrible. haha.
