[+132, -3] My idol when I was in elementary school ㅠㅠ despite it all, it feels like she hasn’t been able to accept the fact that she’s not the main character anymore, the hottest star ㅠㅠ… especially with the way she declares “I’m BoA.” It’s like she doesn’t want to accept that she’s being forgotten ㅠㅠㅠ I hope she knows that she can let go of some of that pressure on herself…

[+89, -10] She doesn’t have the kind of acting talents that will carry her into another industry like Uhm Jung Hwa, and has failed to cement herself as an icon of a generation like Lee Hyori has… it seems only right that she slowly disappears into history..

[+39, -0] We’re now in a new generation where people are like “who is BoA?” ㅋㅋ

[+7, -0] Who would’ve ever thought this would happen to BoA… she used to make headlines as one of the youngest stars to ever debut, the success she achieved in Japan, the top status she maintained as a solo… but it seems her position in the industry has gotten rocky ever since. I think she would’ve had more success if she transitioned into producing and dancing rather than acting.

[+4, -14] I like BoA, though ㅜㅜ

[+2, -0] I agree with the other comment that it seems difficult for her to accept her new position in the industry, especially when she was once lauded as the star of Asia…

[+1, -0] SM never achieves tier 1 names… whether groups or solos

[+0, -1] I can kind of understand her unwillingness to accept her fame being forgotten. She debuted at such a young age and spent 2/3 of her life as a celebrity, no normal childhood to speak of. Everyone paid attention to her when she debuted. It’s probably best for her mental health for her to let go of that pressure to remain relevant now ㅠ
