On January 26, BoA held a showcase for her new album 'NEGA DOLA' at KBS Media Center in Seoul. The singer was given various questions about her new music, as well as her very first reality show 'Keyword #BoA'.
A reporter asked if BoA ever developed feelings for Key, who appeared on the show with her, and asked, "Did Key ever seem like a man to you while filming the reality show together?"
With laughter, BoA answered,"He's 5 years younger than me", and continued, "I was very surprised by him, though. He was more manly and had greater leadership than I thought. I saw a lot of his manly side that at times I found myself depending on him. Recently, I was talking to Kibum (Key's legal name) and I told him, 'I don't have a brother but I feel like I have gained one'."
BoA also added, "The filming for the reality show has ended but I still talk to Kibum often like real noona-dongsaeng. Kibum is an only child so we both feel like we have gained a good noona and good dongsaeng."
