South Korea’s pop star BoA was unable to make a pre-game performance at the second World Baseball Classic Tuesday due to fever and swollen tonsils.

SM Entertainment said, “BoA had been scheduled to perform before the Korea-Japan baseball final at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles but the abrupt illness forced her to cancel the plan.”

BoA, who had recently entered the American market, has been sick in recent days with her busy schedule in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Last week, BoA, the Korean-born pop phenom who has sold millions of records in Asia, released her first U.S. album amid high expectations that she will be able to reenact her success story in Japan in the world’s largest album market.

The album contains 11 songs including flagship song “I Did It For Love,” and dance tracks “Energetic,” “Eat You Up,” and “Look Who’s Talking.” The flagship song was written by Sean Garrett, the famous American producer, and its video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who has made promos for Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Eminem and won the Best Video of the Year and Best Direction in the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.
