South Korean pop singer BoA rose to prominence in the 2000s with her dominance in both the K-pop and J-pop markets. Often recording multiple versions of her songs in Korean, Japanese, and English, BoA also won fans in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. As a teen pop phenomenon who made her debut at age 14 in 1999, BoA was inevitably compared to Britney Spears. But her easy-on-the-ears dance-pop and American-style R&B, including a regular offering of ballads, set her alongside J-pop’s biggest stars like Ayumi Hamasaki and Hikaru Utada.

New album “Woman” released October 25, 2018 by SM Entertainment.
