A survey was conducted by DC Inside and My Celebs where people were asked, Which idols brought success to their companies?
BoA took first place by garnering 2,879 out of 8,274 votes (34.8 percent) over the one-week period of voting. She debuted in Korea in 2000, and then in Japan in 2001. BoA has been since active in both countries, being called Asias Star. It has been said that she is the artist who blazed the trail for SM Entertainment artists to enter foreign markets.
