BoA Celebrates Eleven Years in Japan

After debuting in Korea in 2000, BoA flew over to Japan on May 30, 2001 to start her singing career in Japan.

She revealed on KBS’ Win Win on May 29 that the live performance policy in Japan caught her off-guard and she had a lot of difficulty performing and singing live at the same time.

Through her constant effort and practice, she was able to overcome that problem and eventually became the first Korean artist to reach the top of the Oricon charts.

Releasing many albums and singles, as well as appearing in several commercials, BoA rose to become a top star in both Japan and Korea, earning her the title, ‘Star of Asia.’

Fans congratulated BoA on her 11 years in Japan and wished her all the luck for the future.
