BoA profile

BoA made a significant impact with her debut release in Japan, ‘ID; Peace B,’ on May 30, 2001. Her first album, ‘LISTEN TO MY HEART,’ went straight to No.1 on the Oricon Album Chart and became a million-seller. She went on to top the charts with six consecutive original albums, securing her position as one of Japan’s top recording artists.

In March 2009, she made her North American debut with the self-titled album ‘BoA,’ expanding her arena of activity from Asia to the world. In 2014, she released the long-anticipated ‘WHO’S BACK?’, her first new original album in four and a half years, and began a nationwide tour the same month, eagerly awaited by her fans in Japan.

Next, BoA continued to expand her career as an actress and served as a judge on an audition show with a huge viewership in her home country of South Korea, further cementing her position as a genuine artist. In 2021, she celebrated the 20th anniversary of her debut in Japan and released a new digital single, ‘My Dear,’ on November 5, her birthday. Following the ‘BoA 20th Anniversary FILM LIVE ~BoA THE LIVE EDITION~’ concert tour held in December 2021, BoA continues to draw attention as her career goes from strength to strength.

As she enters her 21st year, BoA continues to shine – keep an eye out for more.
