I only discovered Kpop a few years ago, when BoA was not really active in the scene, so I'd heard of her and watched some of her videos. I know she's known as the Queen of Kpop (not to be confused with some of the male Kpop queens), and that she can dance her ass off, but that's about it. I wasn't into her old songs, and I'm gonna admit I'm not too into this new song either, but DAMN the girl can dance!
BoA- "Only One" mv (Dance ver)
She's my new favorite in the female K-pop world, I think. Plus she's 26. I like seeing the older K-Pop generation school the young'uns. Now she just needs to release some tracks that slay her competition.
This mv was choreographed by world renowned choreographers Nappytabs, who do a lot of choreography for my fave show, So You Think You Can Dance. I spy SM Entertainment's lead choreographer, Shim Jae Won, working it out in this video too:

What I really like about this video, besides the dancing, is that there's all kinds of multiculturalism going on. There's two black guys, a white guy, two Asian guys and a Hispanic guy. I'm thinking that was on purpose, don't you?
Fyi, BoA will be making her comeback on July 29th on Inkigayo. She'll be performing with SHINee's Taemin. Gahhh! I'm so there.
