Ningin reader Danny Truong sent us this recap of BoA’s visit to the Hollywood Universal City Walk last Saturday…

From early morning, crazy, dedicated BoA fans lined up to get their green wristband for the chance to meet and greet the Asian wonder of the world. The wait was long, but once you got a wristband, you could freely roam with your buddies, shop around the stores, get a bite to eat or meet new fans just as crazy as you are! During the wait, we were shown an advance viewing of the “I Did it for Love”- Making of Video, never seen on the internet before. I have to say, I’m quite impressed with the directing and the new water scene, it definitely is one of Boa’s best’s music videos. For the hardcore fans, around 330′ish BoA did a dry rehearsal wearing her Ray Bans. Of course you can still look cool while having jet lagged eyebags. The view at this time was great while she tried to squeeze on the narrow stage with “Eat You Up” and “I Did It for Love”.

In between now and then, CD’s were being sold through FYE. The first people received a pre-autographed poster! Oh my. SM should be wary. “DO NOT FEED THE RABID FANS!” I was nearly run over while trying to get one myself, and simply came later for an easy buy and scored my autographed poster! Although I was there early and help promote this event, made many rounds next to the people handing out bands, my crew and I did not get a band. I wasn’t worried, I was going as VIP for tomorrow’s Forever 21 event. Finally, when BoA came out, along with the sea of Asians, non-Asians formed small herds on the upper levels, while curiousity quickly drew in for groovy “Eat You Up” and the irresistibly catchy, “I Did It For Love”. Since this was BoA’s second time around with “I Did it For Love”, she performed her dance numbers with great authority. Even the most critical of BoA fans were awe-inspired by her breathtaking performances. Unfortunately for most of us, the VIP’s filled the front and blocked the view for good photo op’s during her real performance, so I can’t provide you any good shots this time around. Next time!

After the performance, BoA met with more lucky fans to get posters signed and exchange a few words with her, while there was another chance to get some more pre-signed posters. What does BoA do? sign these on the airplane or something? All wasn’t perfect, like any event, and there were complaints about how many of us came six hours early and did not get a green band. Due to BoA’s surge in popularity, it will become progressively harder to get an autograph, but I hope that people will still come out to her next event for another autograph chance!

Lucky You: She was too sick to be at F21. She got sick from THIS event.
She was definitely too sick to be at the WBC as well.

O_O great blog danny!! you so lucky

I thought she was too sick to perform?

lol Well if we can’t see her no point then.

lol! Does it matter where she’s at as long as she’s here?

Because she’s there?

Why the West coast? :(

Unfortunately. :(

I think her promos are concentrated in LA too.

I think so. She does live there. wink

BoA is still in CA right?

What other concerts are coming up for her?
