[Interview] BoA Missed Late Night Chicken and Beer the Most About Korea
Having promoted overseas for a long time, BoA revealed the things she missed the most about her home country when she was away.
BoA, who is about to release her first Hollywood film Make Your Move, recently met with Newsen for an interview.
During interview, BoA was asked, “You’ve worked overseas for a long time and must’ve adapted by now, but when was the moment that you suddenly missed Korea?”
She answered, “When I wanted to eat chicken and beer late at night,” causing laughter.
She confessed, “When I was in America, I especially missed bars that sold chicken and beer in Korea. Most places in America stop selling alcohol when it’s past 2 am. In Korea, when I come home after finishing work it would usually be around 10 or 11 pm. So after washing up and changing, it would be almost 1 in the morning when I meet up with my friends. I think that’s when I usually played.”
She continued to say, “I think I talked about drinking many times in the past, but now I really can’t drink much since I’ve aged. When I was young, I would spontaneously think ‘Should I drink today? Should I play today?’ but now I make plans on where and when to meet and what to do. I can’t even make plans back to back. I physically get worn out. Also I need to take care of my health…”
BoA revealed, “So I’ve been focusing more on exercising. I had to learn tap dancing as I filmed the movie. It stressed my shoulders and ankles so I’ve been getting rehab treatments and doing weight training. I think I am taking care of my health more now.”
Make Your Move is a romance film about Donny and Aya, two that grow up in completely different environments, falling in love with each other through dancing. The film premiered in Korea and America on April 17.
