^BoA Recently showing off her new cast she got from breaking her arm falling down stairs

September has been an interesting month for Kpop queen BoA. I have to admit that I used to follow BoA like she was a Goddess of some kind. After High School though I stopped reading daily news feeds from various boa sites. I would check them maybe once every other month. But since the release of her latest Japanese album "The Face" I have paid more close attention to BoA because the quality of her music was much better.

At the start of this month SM Entertainment released information that said that BoA would begin US activities. This is hot off the tail of the Beijing Olympics, I guess to ride this whole Asia-wave. SM Entertainment will be packing some people up and shipping them to America to represent BoA stateside. She will not be signed to a major US lable. She is almost done recording her English debut and the music video for her first single titled "Eat You Up" will be released on October 7th.

I don't know....I don't think that it preform all that well personally. Asian artists when they come to the US should be themselves. THey're popular in Asia for a reason, I wish she would have kept her charm. Her English though is so adorable....

Hmm, I've heard plenty of people mention her, but i havent really listened to her stuff. I guess I haven't run into an anime that has her songs :o (if she does anime themes, that is )

She doesn't do a lot of anime songs. Every Heart was used for Inu Yasha, but she's never gone out to do an anime theme. I'm glad, because usually they're pretty cheesy. And her japanese has become very nasaly recently since japanese seem to like thier singers sounding like that.

~Edit~

song's been leaked
