Is this enough for Boa to make it?

Posted on: October 4, 2008

Well these past few weeks been busy for me. Sorry for the lack of posting.

It seems that Boa’s US song “Eat You Up” was leaked recently….or was it? No outraged response from the SM clan on the “leaked” material. So some (like myself) are wondering if it’s some kind of marketing strategy to test Boa’s like ability here in the US. But really, will this song be enough to bring a huge American audience to the attention of Korean music artists and take a minute and listen to it? Coolsmurf did a post on it and has a poll, so go and vote.

(Thanks to Yikes for bring this to my attention. :D)

Now will that make anyone rush to their Itunes and download it to their hearts desirer? Well for my standing point….. NO. Again what is Boa going to bring to the American music scene that’s not already here? Absolutely nothing. She sounds like a wannabe Britney Spears (which is nothing to brag about) and very robotic.

Boa’s robotic singing tone: IF -YOU -MOVE -ANY- CLOSER -BOY -THERE- IS- NO -GUARANTEE~…. Really is that singing or someone putting computer codes in a computer to make it sound like a person. It reminds me of one of those computer assisants when you call the telephone company when REAL LIVE assisants are too busy to help. lol

Another thing Yikes bought to my attention is that on Boa’s myspace page they have her place of orgin listed as “Korea, Democratic Peoples Republic of” i.e NORTH KOREA?  Boa is from North Korea? HAHAHAHAHA. They really need to change it to Republic of Korea also known as South Korea. Is Lee Soo Man keeping track of these things? I guess if the Myspace thing is working for Se7en and his US debut I guess it will work for Boa too. Wait……is it working for Se7en? Has anyone heard anything on Se7en lately besides how his US song is NOT exactly a sweet sound in American ears. Man! LSM do something new or in fact get a better singer to represent.

In other great news Lee Hyori and the WonderGirls are receiving some recognition from Prez Hilton.

Check out the latest article on Popseoul. Mostly Kpop fans are buying it, which means mostly her fans are buying the digital single. Some even bought MORE than one mp3 of Eat You Up (which is stupid because 1. wasting money 2. it doesn’t even count as more than one sale!)

And then there are a few of the other Kpop fans (but non BoA fans) are buying it just to support an Asian.

That is sad, desperate, and pathetic.

^ I’ve heard from different sources that it could count as multiple sales. idk.. maybe someone should confirm it with the actual website like iTunes or Amazon?
