BoA (보아)

A heavyweight in the Korean entertainment industry, BoA has many awards and albums neatly tucked under her belt; all extremely impressive achievements for someone who is barely 21!

This young lady, who debuted at 13, has already released 10 full-length albums, three mini-albums, two compilation albums, two remix albums and over 30 singles in Japan and Korea. Phew! Suddenly I feel like a useless dinosaur.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the one, and only BoA:

Name: Kwon Boa (권보아)

Date of birth: Nov 5, 1986

Languages spoken: Korean, Japanese & English

Height: 160cm

Weight: 45kg

Blood type: AB

Religion: Catholic

Family: Parents, two older brothers & a sister

Debuted: Aug 25, 2000

  • ID; Peace B (2000)

My goodness, two albums per year for three consecutive years? The singing machine blogs at http://blog.oricon.co.jp/boa/ but it’s all in Japanese. However, she loves photography and has uploaded some interesting pics there.

Yes, i have heard about her. But at first i thought she's a Japanese. Because she is big in Japan or something. Actually i don't know why, i just got the impression that she is Japanese. So she is 100% Korean?

She is quite a big star in Korea too...so who is #1? BoA or Lee Hyori or some other sexy, underweight (45kg at 160cm?!!?) singer?

BoA already has the Japanese in the palm of her hands, while Hyo-ri is still trying to break into Japan.

I guess you can say BoA has a wider fan base than Hyo-ri. But for being #1 in Korea, I really don't know.

Anyone care to inform us?

BoA IS INDEED THE QUEEN OF K-POP... some say she has a share with SM Entertaiment....(although im not so sure...) she is not the 'down 2 earth' kind of person if u hav 2 ask...sometimes her dancing is kind of crooky..(maybe coz shes tired or something...who know..).. kuckily she sings well...

I truly admire BoA Kwan has been all the trouble to learn Japanese the moment she sign a music contract. She did a really tough intensive to master a foreign language. Since she's pure Korean. People may know at least two languages. She knows Japanese and Verbal English. Is something some of us are should be encouraged to follow also to learn another foreign language. So lets learn Korean! ^^

Don't bash BoA just cause she's so famous. What do you mean "we know her from back stage choo-suk festival" did u talk to her? If not, then keep it down. So, you're a Hyori fan and you called BoA a hooker? Irony.. i see.
I'm not even gonna go there, you're just messed up in the head.

BoA isn't 160cm. She's 145cm or 150cm at most. Definitely not 160~
