BoA drops 6th album in Korea and Japan
Twenty two-year-old singing machine BoA has released her 6th studio album simultaneously in Korea and Japan!
The album, which is entitled The Face, comes almost a year after the release of her 5th long player, Made in Twenty. The new album contains many different genres such as ballads, R&B, house, punk and rock music.
The Face contains 15 songs, inclusive of past hit singles such as Sweet Impact, Lose your Mind and Love Letter. There are 8 new tracks on the album; the song Girl in the Mirror was even written by the young talent.
Hmm, BoA…when in Beijing last November, K-popped! purchased BoA’s Girl on Top (2005) album because we were curious about her. I mean, aren’t you impressed? Only in her early twenties and she has 6 studio albums under her belt!
Sadly, we haven’t gotten around to listening to Girls on Top. We’ll try to do so sometime this century :-P.

My fave is still GOT XD
I think she’s like the first Korean cum Japanese artiste I always hear, read about few years back tho I never reli got into her (as in being a BoA fan) *haha*
I mus say that she’s good in what she’s doing (well she has been in this field for so long) and she is not called Beat of Angel for nothing XD
And The Face is recommended tho. It’s a good pop album and you can put it on for bgm while you do your stuff 😉
i haven’t get to listen to this new album yet. oh well, i’ve only listened to some of her songs before like Key of Heart, Girls on Top, Spark, Winter Love etc
She doesn’t have that very powerful voice, but it’s decent to hear. Very ear-friendly 😉
She has been active in Japan for so long, so it’s nice to hear she’s releasing something in Korea now. Oh, didn’t she say that she was in stress last time? I pity her, and the fans must have felt bad in a way. urgh.
anyway, other than this, I’m sure looking forward for her US debut! I hope that won’t be left as a rumour. Koreans hwaiting!
The whole Korea/Japan relationship is somewhat of a sensitive and rather complicated issue, especially with younger people of my generation. We are beyond the time when there is a general hatred or resentment but are still close enough to a generation of people who harbored those feelings. However, Japanese groups have been popular in Korea for decades and vice-versa. It’s not really anything new. I remember X Japan being very popular in Korea in the mid 90s and my first Korean-Japanese albums were probably from SES.
It was a wonderful album. Six albums in Japan, 5 in Korea (err I guess 6th now?). She’s been releasing her Japanese stuff in Korea. I guess they’re starting a new trend in Korea (furthering their relationship with Japan and eventually forgiving them? like Sung Si Kyung said). It’s so lovely how they would start this with BoA… AGAIN. God, how awesome.
LOLERS how can you be KPOP lovers and not have listened to her Korean album?
The Face is a pretty decent album, a very eclectic mix yet still a typical korean-japanese pop collection. I do like it though.
