She's been around since the early 2000s, and had hits in both the K-Pop and J-Pop genres. Later in her career, she crossed over to the Western market, too.

Here are only some reasons why she's pop royalty:

3. Her name is an acronym for "Beat of Angel" and she's living embodiment of that.

4. She's beautiful. Just downright beautiful.

5. And apparently does not age.
