BoA said confidently during the press conference
I will prepare myself just like when I entered the Japanese market as a rookie singer. I will strive to achieve the best and give it my best shot. I want to integrate myself into the American market and not as BoA from Korea. I want to be known as a singer working hard in America and let people all over the world hear my music.
