Korean songstress BoA [SM Entertainment]

Korean pop sensation BoA has given fans an update on her recent life, posting a comment on her official Twitter account about her guest appearance on SBS' "ATHENA" and about her upcoming movie.

The songstress wrote on her webpage today saying, "'ATHENA'...I'm going to be leaving now...I'm going to concentrate on preparing for the movie^^Oh yeah!!".

In early August, SM Entertainment announced that BoA was cast as the female lead in a Hollywood dance flick "Make Your Move", written and helmed by director Duane Adler whose works include "Step Up (2006)" and "Save the Last Dance".

She recently made a special guest appearance in "ATHENA" as a top female singer who was faced with a hostage situation by terrorists before her concert while being protected by her bodyguard Jeong-woo (played by Jung Woo-sung).

Known as the first Korean artist to make a major breakthrough into the Japanese music industry, BoA has placed a score of singles atop the prestigious Oricon charts while having released numerous hit songs in the country.

She made her debut into the U.S music scene in 2008 and held her annual Christmas show in Japan titled "BoA - The Live XMAS" on December 20 and 21 at the Tokyo International Forum.
