To fans’ delight, BoA finally performed “Atlantis Princess” again for the first time in 12 years.
From August 22 to 23, BoA held her solo concert “2015 BoA Special Live NOWNESS” at the Sejong Center for Performing Arts.
During the concert, fans had the rare opportunity to watch the female singer perform “Atlantis Princess,” a song she had not sung in 12 years.
It’s widely known that BoA stopped singing “Atlantis Princess” after her manager, who was very dear to her, died in a car accident while she was still performing the song in 2003.
“It was a song I couldn’t easily bring to the public because of the heartache it carries,” she said. “I thought it may finally be time to sing it again for my 15th anniversary concert. Now I may be able to sing it with composure.”

Meanwhile, BoA debuted in 2000 and is now celebrating her 15th anniversary with her eighth full album, showing everyone who’s the queen of the industry.
