BoA to hold her first Korean concert next month!



BoA is set to hold a solo concert in South Korea. On December 11th, it was confirmed that BoA will hold the concert titled "BoA Special Live 2013~ Here I Am" on January 26th at the Olympic Hall.

The concert is expected to showcase a new mature blend to the singer's passionate and charismatic stage presence, as well as a huge turnout from her local and international fans.

Despite having numerous arena tours in Japan, this will be the first time that BoA will hold a concert in South Korea and is already receiving huge expectations. Tickets for her concert are set to go on sale on December 20th.

Meanwhile, aside from preparing for her concert, BoA is back as one of the judges for SBS "K-Pop Star Season 2."

SAME HERE. she's been out for like 12 years...it's crazy that she has never held a Korean solo concert

I'm not 100% sure it is.

If you watch the My Prayer video, you see her at a concert with a counter. I remember reading it was the amount of people who had showed up to her concert.

But this was during her first or second year. So, details are sketchy.

fans don't necessarily count her guerilla concert in 2002 as an official one though, since it was under certain circumstances (provided she get a certain number of people present within one day of notifying them, had only a few songs on the set list, etc).

Concerts (aside from joint events such as Dream Concert) weren't really done in Korea during the first half of her career, then during the second half she was busy with her American debut preparations while carrying on with her Japanese activities and was basically on hiatus in Korea. :( BUT FINALLY, UGH.
pinkosa 11th-Dec-2012 03:12 pm (UTC)
yeah :( i remember wonder girls being the 2nd girl group to hold a concert and that was back in 2008 or 2007 i think.

BUT YAY, FINALLY. Her japanese arena tours aren't enough :(
glenda_ices 11th-Dec-2012 05:04 am (UTC)
Wow, can't believe it either...considering SHINee's already had four sold out concerts and they debuted like 8 YEARS after her.
setsuna16 11th-Dec-2012 01:59 am (UTC)
BRING IT TO THE UNITED STATES!!!!!!!

*cries*

I want to worship my Queen all by herself. Not that I don't love the other SM artists, but, dammit, my ass is there for BoA!

this this this this :')
dieu_existence 11th-Dec-2012 02:12 am (UTC)
why is this her first concert? what's happening in S. Korea?
anconeous 11th-Dec-2012 02:40 am (UTC)
She just never had a concert in Korea. Then again, she was always just in Korea when she's releasing and promoting albums there, and in Japan for the rest of the time.

I hope this means a performance of The Top. or something, anything The Top related.
kiminikaeru 11th-Dec-2012 10:38 am (UTC)
i love this song so much
anconeous 11th-Dec-2012 02:40 am (UTC)
If only I can fly to Seoul to watch. Sigh...

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Olympic Hall is quite small (~3000 seats, iirc), but that's going to make it that much more intimate and personal for the fans who get to go and omggggggggggggggggggg, I'm so jealousssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ THEY NEED TO INVITE KIM JONGWAN TO FEATURE SO HE AND BoA CAN PERFORM IMPLODE. AND CAN KAI FINALLY DANCE ONLY ONE WITH HER PLEASE.
lheeyah 11th-Dec-2012 04:30 am (UTC)
OMG YES TO IMPLODE AND KAI FOR ONLY ONE. Those were the first perfs I thought of when I heard of this concert. It probably gonna be Yunho for Only One though ㅠㅠ

and as much as I like intimate settings for concerts I can't help but think there's gonna be lots of fans who won't be able to watch because of the limited number of tickets
4rang 11th-Dec-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
I was so disappointed that we never got a performance of Implode during her Hurricane Venus promotions, so I really hope we get a full performance of it, including Kim Jongwan, at her concert. Such a gorgeous song, needs to be performed live! And NOOOO, IT NEEDS TO BE KAI. Now that you've mentioned it, I have a nagging feeling it's going to be Yunho too. :( Not that I don't appreciate him, but that couple dance is seriously just calling out for Kai. Considering how much SM has promoted him, you'd think they would have had him first in line for Only One. Ugh, SM.

Lots of fans are definitely going to end up missing out. But I can't go either way and misery loves company, so MUAHAHA. But when I get past my bitterness, I do feel bad because her fans have been waiting for so long and the competition for tickets will be high. Hopefully this concert will be a success and BoA will be able to hold one on a larger-scale in the near future.
anconeous 11th-Dec-2012 05:36 am (UTC)
Maybe it won't be Yunho 'cause they'll be doing Japanese promotions at the time, as well as Yunho's drama.
prlsb4swiine 12th-Dec-2012 04:34 am (UTC)
OMG IMPLODE PLEASE I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A LIVE PERFORMANCE OF THAT SONG MY WHOLE LIFE PLEASE DEAR GOD LET IT HAPPEN
luvey 11th-Dec-2012 03:19 am (UTC)
i'm still surprised this is her first solo concert in korea considering how long she has been around. i know she spent a lot more time in japan...but still.
geniebsmart 11th-Dec-2012 03:29 am (UTC)
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! 8D
yasmine2009 11th-Dec-2012 04:01 am (UTC)
Fucking finally!!! *.* Woman is a legend and she has never held a concert in her home land. Crazy!
lheeyah 11th-Dec-2012 04:18 am (UTC)
I've been dreaming of going to a BoA concert in Korea for so long and now that she's finally having one I can't go ;__;
b1gay4 11th-Dec-2012 04:37 am (UTC)
i would go if i wasnt broke(((and she had more songs i actually like)))
xcherryblossomx 11th-Dec-2012 05:00 am (UTC)

odd_fish_stick 11th-Dec-2012 05:02 am (UTC)

chibiyunie 11th-Dec-2012 06:50 am (UTC)

mjspice 12th-Dec-2012 10:10 am (UTC)
It's out today where I live but can't go this week at all cuz of my sister's exams! T______T
scubajr 11th-Dec-2012 12:11 pm (UTC)
Woah, she's never had a concert in SK? That's really surprising.
gathyou 11th-Dec-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
Congratulations Boa, for your first korean solo concert... That's unbelievable ! Can't wait for the fancams.
earthequality 12th-Dec-2012 03:43 am (UTC)
I don't even like BoA and I find this extremely ridiculous. She's been in the game for what, eleven years now? Paved way in Japan and Korea? Never had a concert before now in Korea? Pretty fucking pressed for her, really.
