You Are The "Only One" For BoA : A Song REVIEW

Updated on September 4, 2012

Before there was Hyuna, before there was Girls Generation, there was BoA. She is what I would consider the first generation of Kpop. She existed before the “Hallyu wave” started to form. The very first Kpop song I saw on youtube was BoA “My Name” around 2005, and it blew my mind. It was one of my first exposures to Asian pop music and I loved it. I even memorized and practiced the entire dance routine.

Because of life I didn’t really follow BoA career after that, I haven’t necessarily caught up. I’m jumping into this new single “Only One”. FYI, BoA produced this entire album, I don’t many Kpop artist that have that level of involvement in their career, very impressive.

I’m more of a visual person so the first thing that I noticed in the music video was the choreography. The backup dancers and BoA are very sharp and their movements are very synchronized. But I don’t think the energetic choreography fits with the soft beat and melody of the song, it was cool to watch though. The song and dance is good individually but just not together.

This part was the only exception.
This part was the only exception.

Well , there was an exception ; the part when BoA was dancing together with that one dancer. That more intimate kind of dancing worked better with the song.

There is also a “drama version” of a music video. BoA sees her boyfriend at a coffee place, and she contemplates breaking up their relationship. I see now why she was dancing in the last video, breaking up is pretty stressful and dancing is a really nice outlet. There is a weird moment in the music video, her skin sparkles like Edward Cullen and then turns into bubbles. I guess that meant she was in a fantasy, because she walks into the coffee shop again and meets her boyfriend again, as if the whole music video never happened.

As a song by itself, I’m not really into it. It’s not a bad song, but it’s pretty forgettable, I like the choreography, but a soft song about breaking up doesn’t really make me want to get up and dance.
