Kwon BoA (권보아/權寶兒/权宝儿/ クォン·ボ) commonly stylized and known by her stage name BoA, which is a backronym for Beat of Angel, is a Korean singer, active in South Korea, Japan, and the United States.
BoA was born and raised in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. She was discovered by SM Entertainment talent agents when she accompanied her older brother to a talent search. In 2000, after two years of training, she released ID; Peace B, her debut Korean album. Two years later, she released her debut Japanese album, Listen to My Heart.
On October 14, 2008, BoA debuted in the United States with the single "Eat You Up" and released her debut English-language album, BoA on March 17, 2009.
BoA's multilingual skills (she speaks Japanese and English along with native Korean and has recorded songs in Mandarin Chinese) have contributed to her commercial success throughout East Asia. She is the only foreign artist to have two albums selling more than one million copies in Japan and is one of only three artists to have six consecutive number-one studio albums on the Oricon charts since her debut, the others being Ayumi Hamasaki and Koda Kumi. BoA has sold over 10 million records throughout her career, including albums, singles, and DVD's.

Review Highlights of the Netherlands’ “Make Your Move 3D” Sneak Peek

SHOW SPOILER Highlights from Anita on Twitter

The dance scenes are spectacular. The 3D adds so much to the film while they are dancing. The director sometimes made it look like you’re in the crowd. When you look at the stage, with people standing in front of you, you really got the feeling you’re there at that moment, a feeling I haven’t had with previous dance movies. The dust, fire and camera angles take you in that moment. The fire is coming out of the screen, and when Aya’s playing the drum, she’s embracing the audience.

A nice touch is while Donny and Aya are texting, you can see the words appear in the screen, while you’re watching them look at their phone and typing. They share their intimate moments with the audience.

Donny Aya Dancing

The dancing parts are strong, you can see the passion for dancing in their eyes. The moments they dance together you hear them breathe, non-verbal communicating. You see their concentration, joy and passion. They dance fluent, feel each other and react to each other. Too bad they couldn’t bring these emotions to the monologue parts.

My favorite dance scene in the movie was the part in the bedroom. You hear her breathe loudly! Is that a word? And the bodies just sync when they are dancing. Hot!


The music is well chosen. It really makes the movie complete with the dancing. Let me In (the theme song written by Derek Hough) is well picked, and a theme song people will love and recognize. And here’s a little secret, the mystery song of BoA?……She sings Let Me In during the end credits.

So how does it (the movie) end? There’s a lot of scenery at a nice location. The drums and music are great together, and the 3D kicks are awesome. Rose peddles, dust, light! It all works in the final moments. It’s a movie that gives you a smile on your face when you’re going home. If you keep in mind:

“It’s a typical dance movie. You really go there to see the dancing, not the acting.”


SHOW SPOILER Highlights from Andrey on the Boijjang Forum

Make Your Move 3D is a Romeo and Juliet themed movie with some Taiko drumming and tap dancing featuring BoA Kwon (Aya) and Derek Hough (Donny). I liked the Romeo and Juliet theme, and I think BoA and Derek have depicted it very well. You’ll get touched by how they grow to each other, interact and sensually dance together.

kinopoisk.ru

I liked the COBU Taiko drumming and dance sequences…Then there’s the tap dancing. Now I’m not a fan of tap dancing, but I think Derek did this very well. The only thing is there was no music playing during these tap dances and that made feel those sequences as a bit empty. If you look at the trailer with Derek and BoA dancing on the bar, it’s great, but in the movie, those scenes were music-less. The end dance however, is a whole different story. That was what I was waiting for and expecting…even though I think they could’ve put more power into it.

…The music that did play during the movie was cool, I’m waiting for the OST to pleasure my ears. Let Me In is a really great song, with BoA and Derek, making it complete! The song is played afterwards as a short rearranged instrumental during some scenes.

I think BoA did great on acting even though there were some moments where she will get you out of the movie. Her English has improved, but it sometimes lacks the right emotion. Donny even mentioned her English as funny, which somehow made it acceptable (as if her way of speaking was just scripted that way).

I think Derek acted pretty well. I don’t know him, but I got the impression that he may have some acting background (besides dancing). [Editor: He does.] They both danced great, especially in the end…I haven’t watched (many) dance movies, but a friend of mine, who does, did watch Make Your Move 3D with me. She doesn’t know who BoA and Derek are, but she mentioned their great dancing skills.

Oh, I almost forgot about U-Know! He had just a little screen time, but his dancing was great (as always)… I think I would watch the movie dance sequences over-and-over again, when it’s released on Blu-ray. I would then put my headset on and enjoy it even more!

If you’re a BoA or Derek fan, then it’s a must-watch! You’ll see your favorite artist in a whole different way. For me, as a BoA fan, it was almost 2 hours of BoA epicness! Her cuteness is all over the place.

“To find out that there is even one devoted fan who loves you, as a singer, without any condition, gives you tremendous amount of strength and courage. I work over and over again so I don’t disappoint those people.”
— Kwon BoA

"There really are a lot of places that stun people [in terms of BoA’s choreography proficiency]. In ‘The Shadow’, she used the finger tut style (a tuting dance that uses one’s fingers and agile movement as the focus point). She said that she couldn’t do it, and ten minutes later, she learned it. I thought that was preposterous." - Shim Jaewon
