Korean singer BoA is releasing a repackaged version of her debut album in the United States this month.
The new album, called “Deluxe,” will carry a total of 15 numbers, the 22-year-old singer’s agency SM Entertainment announced Tuesday. The album comprises the original 12 songs from her first U.S. album, “BoA,” plus two new songs, “Crazy About” and “Control” as well as an edited version of her third single, “Energetic.”
Over the past decade, an increasing amount of Korean popular cultural content, including television dramas, movies, pop songs, and their associated celebrities have gained immense popularity. This has happened not only in China, Japan and other East and Southeast Asian countries, but also in Iran, Egypt and Zimbabwe and others. News media and trade magazines have recognized the rise of Korean popular culture in the world, dubbing it the “Korean wave” (“Hallyu” in Korean).
BoA, a South Korean pop star now active in the United States, is poised to take off in the United States, stealing the limelight as a promising singer.
BoA, 22, is scheduled to perform on the Main Stage of the San Francisco Pride to be held in San Francisco June 28 along with Solange Knowles, sister of Beyonce, a top American R&B singer, and rock band Cliks.
