[NEWS] BoA tweets to Italian fans
11 May 2013 - 07:53 AM by Cori

After a number of Italian Kpop fans reporting incidents of BoA giving fans the cold shoulder while she is out and about in Italy, BoA made a personal tweet in reply.

Posted Image


Translated, BoA says "I am now on a trip as a normal human, leaving everything behind.. While enjoying these.. The scent of humanity, the scent of nature.. And so… Please understand that I had no choice but to reject you.." Many BoA fans have favorited the post and retweeted it. Do you think that the Italian fans will continue to bash our Queen of Kpop or do you think that they will come to understand after her public explanation?

To understand what this is refering to, please check out this post by member stufi105 which translates an Italian fans account of BoA here.

If you saw BoA hanging out around your town, enjoying herself, would you approuch her and follow her, or would you leave her at peace? Tell us in the comments below!

Caution: buying stuff from members. At your own risk.
09 March 2013 - 12:13 AM by yunapolaris

Good day, BoAjjang-ers :)
Lately, I have been observing an amount of members who are trying to sell their BoA's stuff like cds, posters etc. These activities are not prohibited by BoAjjang, however it's not under BoAjjang's protection either.

BoAjjang forum will not hold any responsibility in any loss of payment/revenue from these activities.

With that in mind, you will buy those items at your own risk.

To prevent being victim of any fraud, please consider these tips:
- DO NOT send cash/money order/ or even personal check under any circumstances.
- Only accept transaction through some secured paying website like Paypal. Make sure the payment is for merchandise, not personal needs.
- You can even request the item to be posted on eBay, so that you will get protection from both eBay & Paypal.
- Basic rule: if something sounds too good to be true, it's probably is.
- Do your research before make any transactions.

Getting from fans is a great way to collect, however you need to be cautious to protect yourself.
I hope this guide will help you stay safe in the journey of collecting BoA's items.

Cheers :)

[FULL RECAP] Cobu 3D: Inside look at KCon 2012
14 October 2012 - 03:49 PM by Cori

After months of no word on the release of the long awaited film “COBU 3D”, which features BoA as the main female lead Aya, attendees of KCON 2012 were given a small treat of what is to come sometime earlier next year. COBU 3D: Inside Look panel consisted of Duane Adler, the director and writer of the film, Joel High the music supervisor, and Eric Hetzel the producer. They started off the hour panel with a ten minute exclusive sneak peak of the movie, giving a short description of the film and what fans should expect.



After the video was shown, they went on to say nothing but good things about our BoA.
Duane spoke of how he had found BoA from a friend. After he started writing "Cobu", he could not get BoA out of his mind. Getting into contact with SM Entertainment, Duane sent them the script for BoA to read over. When Duane met with BoA in Tokyo, BoA seemed enthusiastic about the project and liked the fact that Aya was very much like her, even stating that she found Aya "very vulnerable."

The cast worked for 5 weeks prior to filming to learn all the dancing for the film. Duane went on to state that BoA worked her butt off everyday and even surprised her co-star, Derek Hough.

Derek was used to teaching non-dancers how to dance, with BoA, it was totally different and Derek was NOT prepared for BoA's dance skill. The duo soon became very competitive with one another, "but in a friendly way."

Duane went on to tell the audience of how BoA had pulled a prank on him on april fools day. At 2 AM, BoA texted Duane, telling him how he shouldn't be alarmed, but she had just been arrested. Duane tried to call her, multiple times, but she did not answer. He said he started to become very nervous and began to panic. She ended up calling him back, laughing and said "APRIL FOOLS!" Duane went on to say that he would "get her back for that one day!"

There was also talk of other SM Entertainment artists being featured on the movie soundtrack and in the film. Girls' Generation, F(x), TVXQ, and EXO-M member, Kris, will be featured within various songs in the movie. The panel went on to give the audience a sneak peek of two songs that would featured in the film, "Cheap Creeper" sing by Girls' Generation and "Say Yes" sung by Jessica of Girls' Generation, Krystal of f(x), and Kris of EXO-M.

Still no official movie release date has been set for the film, but the panel seems hopeful that it will be coming out early next year.

Watch SBS comeback show "BoA 4354" again!
28 July 2012 - 10:17 AM by Uni

The special comeback show for BoA aired on July 28th on SBS as part of her big return after a 2-year hiatus.

"BoA 4354," the title of the show, showed unseen and behind-the-scene clips, as well as featured several performances by BoA. She performed tracks such as "Girls On Top," "My Name," "The Shadow," "Tree," Mayday! Mayday!", "Not Over U" and "Only One," among others.

The comeback show also featured SM Entertainment actress and good friend of BoA, Lee Yeonhee, who met with the latter. During one of their conversations, Lee Yeonhee stated that BoA wasn't taking care of her body. BoA, however, retorted, "But I exercise!" to which Lee Yeonhee pointed out that BoA complained after a bit of exercise.

"BoA 4354" also took viewers behind-the-scene with SMTOWN as they prepared to do the photoshoot for the upcoming "S.M. ART Exhibition" in August. There, she interacted with TVXQ's Changmin, Super Junior's Eunhyuk and Lee Sooman.

Another clip viewed BoA visiting the set of SBS drama "A Gentleman's Dignity" and meeting with actors Kim Minjong and Kim Sooro to her delight. There, she showed the two males the music video drama to her title track with Yoo Ahin, "Only One."

SM Entertainment director and choreographer Shim Jaewon also commented on BoA, revealing that the female singer is very smart and could remember dance choreographies and perform them quickly. An example of that is BoA's ability master the finger tutting in a matter of 15 minutes!

During a short clip of BoA in the practice room, BoA is seen showing her love for Girls' Generation and performing the signature dance move for their track, "Genie."

BoA ends her comeback show with a performance of her self-composed title track, "Only One," which featured TVXQ's U-Know Yunho for the couple dance. Yunho's large frame over BoA is seen clearly as he towers over her.

"U-Know Yunho and I look like Tom and Jerry together." -BoA during an interview

The show ends cutely with BoA waking up to her phone, and various clips of her screaming at the camera flashes across the screen, ending with BoA laying back down in her bed.

Meanwhile, BoA will be having her first official comeback stage on SBS "Inkigayo" on July 29th, and will feature SHINee's Taemin as her partner for the couple dance for "Only One"!
