Singer BoA has said she is taking on challenges to expand her presence on the entertainment scene. The performer tried out acting, on KBS TV drama “Hope for Love“, for the first time recently. Her episodes are scheduled to air Wednesday and Thursday.

In the drama, BoA plays a girl named Yeonae who has superior looks but never succeeds to date a man for a long time.

“As I started my career early, I sometimes had to face some moments [where I felt] that I have to settle at where I AM., said BoA.

“I thought my youth was going to a waste, so I wanted to take a challenge on a new thing and climb up the ladder again”.

She then added that there is no rule that singers should only sing and not act.

“Comedians sing too, but people especially have prejudice over singers taking an acting job”.

K-pop icon BoA says she long wanted to try out acting, but she was too famous as a singer to get the chance.

“I’ve constantly thought about derailing the life I have as the singer BoA over the past 13 years,” she said in a recent filming of the SBS talk show “Thank You” (which airs tonight).

“I tried for a long time to move into acting, but I was rejected in the casting process so many times as people said it was too burdensome to take me due to the image I have as a singer.”

The singer finally got a chance to act thanks to the 3-D dance movie “Make Your Move 3D,” which recently opened in Europe. It has not received a release date for Korea.

BoA also gets the chance to try out her acting skills in the two-episode KBS drama “Expect Dating,” which is scheduled for release next month.

Hong Kong Fans Ask K-Pop Artists To Boycott The “Hong Kong Dome Festival”

On July 1st, the “Hong Kong Dome Festival” outdoor concert will be held at the Kai Tak Development Site, lasting four hours long, and will features artists BoA, SHINee, EXO, f(x), Super Junior-M’s Henry, and local bands Mr and RubberBand.

Unfortunately, the event has been shrouded in controversy.

A pro-democracy protest rally is held annually on July 1st in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong fans have argued that their government has purposely arranged the concert in efforts to derail young people from the protest, which will focus on Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying.

Tickets for concerts in Hong Kong is said to average about 1,000 Hong Kong dollars (145,000 won or approximately 128 USD); but tickets for the “Hong Kong Dome Festival” were sold for 99 Hong Kong dollars (14,000 won or approximately 12 USD).

And thus, fans have been requesting K-Pop artists, who are scheduled to attend – BoA, SHINee, f(x), EXO and Super Junior-M’s Henry – through their Facebook page to boycott the upcoming concert.

One fan writes, “I love your songs and dance, but please do not go to Hong Kong on 1/ 7. BoA, please DO NOT make the show in HK on July 1. The government wants to use your fame to sidetrack the democratic event. Please consider, you are living in a country WITH democracy while we are not.”

“The concert you are attending is held at the same time as the march and I would really hate to see that you will be involved in some devious plot to try to undermine the Hong Kong people’s will to say No to a government which was not chosen by its people. Please rethink your decision to attend this concert,” posts a SHINee fan.

However, organizers of the “Hong Kong Dome Festival” deny the event was organized to clash with the protest. PIA chairwoman Florence Chan said to South China Morning Post (SCMP), “July 1 has become a day for Hongkongers to express their demands to the government. We picked this day because we wanted to show the government that we need a mega venue in Hong Kong so that we can stay competitive in the region.”

She adds that the Hong Kong Colisseum** has a capacity for 12,500, and has constantly been overbooked. “We need a venue with a capacity of 25,000 to 30,000.”

The West Kowloon Cultural District is known to have plans for an 18,000 capacity venue that will only come into fruition depending on the budget. Chan explains the the low price tickets to the music festival was “to help show public demand for mega shows (SCMP).”

Civil Human Rights Front’s Jackie Hung Ling-yu insists that the concert is sponsored by property developers to dissuade young people into participating in this year’s protest rally, but says that “the ploy would be in vain and protesters would take to the streets as usual (SCMP).”

A Facebook Page has been set up and has already attracted nearly 6,000 likes.

While there has been no word if any of the SM Entertainment artists will boycott the concert at the heed of fans, local Hong Kong bands Mr and RubberBand have recently announced that they will still participate, but will donate their earnings from the concert to charity.

RubberBand posted their decision via Facebook and Sina’s Weibo, “We offer our sincere apology to fans who are disappointed in us. After a few days of consideration, we have come to the conclusion that we can voice our opinion on any stage, wherever it is (SCMP).”

“After the event, we will [join] the march. We call upon all those who care about Hong Kong’s freedom and political development to take to the streets and express their views on that day (SCMP).”

Mr writes, “To those of you who have attacked and discredited the performers [at Dome Festival], we do not make this decision out of fear of you. I want you to know your comments bring no positive impact on society, the economy or yourself (SCMP).”

**in comparison, Tokyo Dome (Japan) has a capacity of 55,000; Kaohsiung (Taiwan) seats 40,000; Singapore Sports Hub seats 55,000.

BoA recently sang a track titled “Between Heaven and Hell” for the new KBS drama “Shark,” and the music video for this song has finally been released.

The music video for “Between Heaven and Hell” contains scenes from the drama itself and focuses on the childhood of the main characters, specifically the close relationship that develops between the male and female protagonist. Both the scenes in the music video and the song’s melancholic tone hint at the drama’s tragic story line.

Starring actor Kim Namgil and actress Son Yejin, “Shark” is a drama about a man (Kim Namgil) who decides to take revenge for his family, even if it means sacrificing the woman he loves (Son Yejin). The drama airs every Monday and Tuesday on KBS.
