SM Entertainment has once again made a mistake with BoA's name and fans are not happy.

On May 22, a photo of BoA was shared on the official Instagram account of SM Audition. The post from "BOA" informed about the 2017 SM Global Audition

You might have already noticed but there is a slight mistake with the post. SM once again failed to distinguish the upper and lower case letters while spelling BoA's name. (It should be stylized as BoA, not BOA).

The same mistake occurred back in April in the teaser image for BoA's ''Spring Rain''. At the time, BoA openly called out SM Entertainment for the mistake. 

Many fans are criticizing SM Entertainment for making the same mistake again and even called it an act of disrespect. 

In response to the criticism, SM Entertainment deleted the post and reposted a new one with the proper format of BoA's name.

This might not be serious for most people. But if you're a true and die hard fan of an artist, you'll notice little things. It might not be important but to fans, they need respect in every little things that involves their idols.

damn, that comment was a pain in the ass to type... which is why the person who wrote that first instragram post with "BOA" probably didn't care too much.

You wrote an entire article about a capitalized "o"?

Because BoA already called out SM for writing BOA and they do it again.

Considering that every other word above is written in all caps, I think it's okay. Everything is just in all caps. If the "o" and the "a" were both lowercase then it would be more of an issue because that's when they are really not taking great care in writing her name.

She's nice not caring for this innocent mistake but that's not really respectful for her... It proves they didn't take the time to check it before..
