Normally I would expect Koreans to worship BoA (as she should be), but lately there have been negative reactions towards her. I understand that not everyone is going to like a certain person, but people in the god/goddess tier should be exceptions to the rule, or so I thought.
First of all, Koreans should thank BoA for bringing attention to their country. Without her, the majority of foreigners would not give a shit about Worst Korea. You could bring up the likes of Korean MMORPGs, Hyundai, Kia, Samsung and LG bringing attention to Korea, but at the time BoA was blowing up, Korean MMORPGs were only known for being boring grinders and Hyundai, Kia, Samsung and LG were still having quality control issues, releasing shitty products that ended up in the bargain bin. If anything, Korea back then had the same image of China today: a country that releases low-quality products that aren't even worth wiping your ass with.
BoA debuted in Japan in 2001 and launched to the top of the Oricon chart. Koreans started bandwagoning and became fans of BoA. She is one the major pioneers of the Hallyu. Though many people (such as myself) started giving a shit about Korea after discovering BoA, many others discovered Kpop through other artists who would not have had the map laid out for them if it was not for BoA. Being Korean didn't automatically make me care about Korea because I thought Korea was a third-world country that released second-rate products for mass consumption. The companies I mentioned have made major improvements over the past decade, but it still is taking them a long time to shed off their previous images.
While such companies gave people a bad impression of Korea, BoA was a major player in turning around the conception people had of Korea. People who witnessed BoA when she was a teenager would leave remarks such as "Oh, she's so cute. She dances and sings well, plus she has great songs." People who discovered BoA when she became an adult would leave remarks such as "I would pee in her butt. Plus her songs are really good." Naturally, most people discovered BoA through J-Pop, which naturally made people think BoA was Japanese. Later on, people discovered BoA was Korean through finding her Korean songs, and others deduced that she couldn't be Japanese because her teeth were straight. Now all of these fans, who knew nothing about Korea and likely thought of Korea as a poor man's version of Japan now saw Korea in a better light because their favorite artist was Korean.
Seeing as how BoA helped change the perception of Korea to many fans (who may or may not have been weeaboos), I would assume Koreans would be thankful for that. Before the Hallyu, Kim Jong-il was more relevant than anyone from South Korea. That was silly of me to have such as assumption. This is fucking Korea we're talking about, land of the Kimchi faggots who complain about every little thing. In order to make themselves feel somewhat better, they have to drag someone down to share their misery with others. If one Korean netizen is miserable, it's not okay for a goddess such as BoA to be on a pedestal. Fuck that shit, UCAAD.
You may have read netizens giving crap to BoA about her acting, and not having the face for acting, but it's all a bunch of bullshit. Who the fuck is ever great the first time they do something? Koreans love the believe in geniuses, but those are rare. Most "geniuses" have simply dedicated their time to their craft. People such as Mozart and Tiger Woods weren't born to excel in what they did. They put in the time from the very young age and dominated their respective fields. Of course BoA isn't going to be jjangbak her first time. That's why people work to improve. Do you think every porn star was able to hump hot chicks for hours on end from the beginning? No, they lasted one minute one second (as everyone would last that long banging Jiyeon.) It takes everyone time to get better. Look at how netizens reacted to Goo Hye Sun in 2012 and now in 2014 during the airing of Angel Eyes.
BoA finally has a flaw that can be exploited, and that's her lack of experience of acting. Korean netizens who haven't accomplished anything can feel like they have accomplished a lot by attacking BoA, someone who has accomplished more than 99 percent of Koreans ever will. BoA filmed a Korean movie earlier this year while juggling promotions in Japan for "Shout It Out" while salty Korean netizens accomplished getting 500 upvotes in the comments section of an article about BoA.
Maybe I would also hate BoA if I was a miserable cunt, but I'm not one. I can attempt to analyze why Koreans are such miserable cunts. Luckily that isn't an inheritable trait.
