Just like almost everyone else, celebrities also experience the upsetting feeling of having stage fright. However, celebs go through this almost every time they step onto the stage or perform for the cameras. Despite her superstar status and 15-year experience, BoA still gets the nerves sometimes, but she has a rather common way of fighting it.
The "Kiss My Lips" singer revealed during her guest appearance in "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook" that she was more nervous than usual with her latest comeback. BoA said she doesn't usually get worried about chart rankings, but her "Kiss My Lips" comeback made her feel unease. Thus, she drowned her nervousness in alcohol before checking the charts. "When I saw myself at number 1, I passed out and fell asleep right on the spot!" BoA shared on her reaction towards the success of "Kiss My Lips".
"Kiss My Lips", and the success that followed it, is all thanks to all the hard work BoA laid out during the song's production. 2015, BoA said, is a meaningful year for her and her fans, "I want to create music that I can give to myself and to my fans as a gift. That's why I got into thinking that I should write all the songs [for this album]. Eventually, that's what really happened. There was one time I came home feeling regretful and I ended up writing about 20 songs starting June last year. I really learned a lot."
Upon its release, "Kiss My Lips" went straight to number one in 2 local music charts.
