K-pop star BoA preformed in front of more than 6,000 people over the weekend at Sejong Center for the Performing Arts in Seoul. Since her debut in 2000, BoA has grown into an international K-pop and cultural icon, and the weekend crowds are a testament to her continued popularity after 15 years. It has been close to three years since her last solo concert, and fans were clearly excited to hear more.
BoA sang 19 songs that she has released in Korea, Japan and the U.S. In addition to hits, she chose a special medley of relatively unfamiliar tunes and some songs from her eighth full-length album, which came out in May. "My goal as a singer is to live well; doing music and staying healthy both in mind and body," she said. "I want to remain as a singer who is like a friend."
