On Instagram story, BoA revealed a preview of her upcoming episode of Nobody Talks To BoA where she shocked fellow legend, Uhm Jung Hwa by revealing the real reason she carried a Persian cat everywhere she went when she debuted.
As an artist who was active when BoA first debuted, Uhm Jung Hwa recalled how BoA used to carry a Persian cat everywhere she went.
When our schedules would overlap back in the day, you carried a cat everywhere you went.
And BoA confessed that she did, but not because she wanted to.
I did. Because the agency told me to.
She then elaborated on why Lee Soo Man told her to carry the cat everywhere despite their lack of chemistry.
Lee Soo Man told me to raise a Persian cat so that I can look more mysterious. The cat hated me.
And Uhm Jung Hwa was shocked.
I thought you carried around a cat because you debuted at a young age and had no friends. I thought you did it for comfort.
— Uhm Jung Hwa
BoA debuted back in 2000, making this year her 20th year as an idol and celebrity.
She just released her 20th debut anniversary album, “BETTER”.
