Officially Kmusic would like to wish BoA a very happy 30th birthday!
Kwon Boa (권보아) born on November 5, 1986 in Guri, Gyeonggi Province,South Korea.
She is also known as the “Queen of KPop.”
2 years after her debut in 2000, she released her Japanese album, ‘Listen to My Heart’, and she became the first KPop star to break through in Japan following the restricted import/export since the end of WWII.
In 2008 she debuted in the US with her single ‘Eat You Up,’ and released her English album, BoA in March of 2009.
She can speak Japanese, English and Korean and has recorded some of her songs in Mandarin Chinese.
She is the only foreign artist to have 3 albums to sell more than 1 million copies in Japan and the second to have 6 #1 singles on the Oricon charts.
She debuted at age 13 after only 2 years of training, however she was forced to quit school to prepare for her first mini, ‘Don’t Start Now’, in 2001, and it sold 90,000 units.
She continues to grow in both Korea and Japan and has had one of the longest Kpop carriers, going into her 16th year this year.
Congratulations to BoA for her success and also happy 30th birthday!
