BoA talked about how her great success in Japan was unexpected.
The October 29 episode of MBC's 'Section TV' included an interview with BoA, who just made a hot comeback with 'Woman.'
The veteran idol looked back at her 19-year career, and said, "I learned Japanese even before my debut with Japanese promotions in mind. I thought I would be returning after 1 or 2 years of promoting in Japan. After Japanese promotions, I shared my farewells, saying, 'I'm going to Korea.'"
She continued, "I was preparing for my college entrance exam, but I was asked to return to Japan because I topped the Oricon Chart. Returning to Japan was difficult because of my academics, so the Japanese media would fly over to Korea to film me."
