With 2020 marking the 20th anniversary since her debut, singer, songwriter, and actress BoA took some time to look back on her career and shared her thoughts on how much she enjoyed receiving love for doing what she loved. 

BoA, who will be celebrating her 20th anniversary on August 25, was selected as the August cover model of fashion and lifestyle magazine, Allure Korea, who highlighted the path that the Hallyu star has walked as an artist. 

In the accompanying photo shoot, BoA pulls off each detailed look in her own distinct way while oozing charisma and giving off a too-cool vibe with minimal posing.

During her interview with the magazine, BoA mused on the 20 years since her debut and remarked, “First, I’d like to congratulate myself and say, ‘Good work. I’m proud of you.’ The time passed by very quickly and excitingly. It’s a huge blessing to be able to receive love for doing what you love. It was a really fun 20 years.”

My fans sometimes tell me that BoA has become a part of their lives. I feel like we’ve become really comfortable with each other.”
