Since I am temporarily living in the Far East, first in South Korea, and now China, I do read and watch a lot of news of the local nations. One news that has been going around the Korean airwaves is about one of the most famous Korean singers in the last decade, a female singer that goes by the name of Boa.
Recently, maybe a few months ago, the singer came on in a public show to express her regret at her short stature (source HERE).
Singer BoA expressed her regret over her short height.
BoA revealed through her Twitter on September 18th, “If I could go back to my teens…I would drink so much milk…I want to return :’(”
BoA also wrote, “I’m going to listen to Eun Ji Won‘s ’160′* while sleeping ^^ good night ^^”
*(160 cm is about 5.25 ft)
Fans who visited BoA’s Twitter responded with comments like, “Honest national singer“, “You’re still pretty even if you’re small“, and “If you’re tall also, you’d be too perfect~“.
Meanwhile, BoA will reveal her repackage album, “Copy & Paste“, through KBS Music Bank on the 24th.

On an episode of “Win Win” that aired on May 29, BoA was asked, “When you were a trainee, were you scolded a lot?” She answered, “I was told to lose weight a lot.”
She explained that although she was a young girl of only 14 years old, she had to go on a diet. “Do you think I was able to grow while trying to lose weight at such an age? I think I’ll keep this grudge forever.”
Furthermore, BoA shared how hard it was during her Japanese debut process. She stated, “Girls’ Generation and SHINeeeach had interpreters but DBSK and myself did not. We had interviews lined up after merely a day into our Japanese debut and no matter how much we studied, it was really difficult to speak.”
BoA continued, “Eventually, the questions began to repeat so we just started to memorize our answers. I’m always being asked to do difficult things. I don’t like being called a ‘pioneer’ because – why do I always have the pave the way?”
Meanwhile, BoA shared many episodes and thoughts during this episode including her first impression of YG and how many agencies wanted to recruit her in the past.
Me: I guess even the best and most famous of us still might feel small. Will we never be satisfied with who we are?
