The local press also took this opportunity to speak to the young diva. This 23 year-old (born 5th Nov, 1986) singer who debuted when she was 14, has conquered the Japanese market. Despite such success, she feels very emotional and nervous about making it in the United States. BoA plans to release her first American album in mid-2009. She will be heading to Japan to work on it, then return to America where she will continue with her studies to master the English language.
BoA also confesed that she gets very nervous when she is performing in her home country Korea. Why? It’s because there’s such high expectations from her.
