South Korea's top pop star BoA will have her first Christmas live concerts in Tokyo in two years.
BoA announced on her Japan Web site earlier this week that she will hold the live concerts under the title of "BoA The LIVE X'mas." More recently, she has been active with "Girlfriend," her new collaboration song with Crystal Kay, Japan's top singer.
BoA's Christmas live concerts will take place in Tokyo on Dec. 4-5 and in Osaka on Dec. 8.
BoA, 22, who had been performing in Japan, released her U.S. album on March 17 amid high expectations and has since been stepping up her American activities.
She is struggling to repeat her success in Japan in the United States. Specifically, she has signed a contract with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the No. 1 Hollywood entertainment agency.
Under the agreement, within North America CAA is representing BoA in all areas, including music, film and merchandising. The agency is mulling a U.S. tour in the second half of the year.
