Biography

Boa is a name of several artists:
1. South Korean singer
2. 70s rock band
3. Croatian band
4. Chilean band
5. Czech rock band
6. experimental electronic music

1) A mononym of South Korean singer Kwon Boa / 권보아 [Ko] (b. 5 Nov 1986, in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea) - a backronym of ‘Beat of Angel’ (active in South Korea, Japan & USA). She was discovered by SM Entertainment talent agents, when she accompanied her older brother to a talent search. In 1998, she signed to SM Entertainment & after two years of training, débuted with “ID; Peace B” (’00). Two years later, she released her Japanese début album, “Listen To My Heart” (Avex Trax). Her USA début was, the single, “Eat You Up” (14 Oct ‘08, SM Entertainment USA), followed by an English-language début album, “BoA” (17 Mar ‘09).

Influenced by & singers - such as Nelly & Janet Jackson - many of Boa’s songs fall into those genres. As the singer feels she does not “have any talent for writing ”, the writing and composition of her songs are handled mostly by her staff; for this reason, she has drawn some criticism. (Though only a few of her songs are self-written, BoA began composing on her own with her Japanese début album LISTEN TO MY HEART, in which she co-wrote and composed the song “Nothing’s gonna change”.)

Boa’s multilingual skills (she speaks Japanese and conversational English along with her native Korean and has recorded songs in Mandarin Chinese) have contributed to her commercial success in South Korea and Japan and her popularity throughout East Asia.

    Japan is a sick country but has a very powerful culture that influences the younger generation. For example, manga aimed to standardize child pornography, incest in the family, the extreme violence and especially homosexuality. If you read yaoi or ero-guro, you will know that what I say is the truth. I'm not very religious but they remind me of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible. I think it is because of their obscenity that God hates them. Japanese boys from boys band that they produce are very effeminate (to not to say "queer as folk") but girls just think they are "kawaii" .. In addition, they live in an inhumane society that hates foreigners, but everyone thinks it's wonderful. Recently I read the prophecies of a man called Nicolaas van Rensburg extremely popular in Europe who predicted with infinite detail all the world wars and the tragic ending of this country for exactly the same reasons I just mentioned. 私はあなたに真実を伝える許し。
