1. [+527, -22] Please take a listen to her song 'Love Story'... I remember listening to it and then looking her up and coming across the tragic story of her family and now I can never forget it whenever I see her.

2. [+484, -18] She's retiring at such an early age. Her songs are loved by a lot of Koreans too.

3. [+59, -4] Please go search up her tragic family history ㅠㅠ she's a singer who has lived such a sad life. Her grandmother is from Okinawa and she was so poor that she resorted to doing odd chores around a US army base before being raped by an American soldier and giving birth to Amuro Namie's mother. Amuro Namie's mother married a man she loved but his family wasn't fond of the fact that she was the orphan of an American soldier which led to their divorce. When Amuro Namie dropped out of junior high to become a singer, she ended up in a shotgun marriage with an older guy in the industry... which also ended in divorce. Amuro Namie's mother ended up being brutally murdered by the son of the man she remarried... ㅠㅠ I hope that she lives the rest of her life in peace and happiness! Congratulations on the retirement!

4. [+57, -2] I'm amazed that she even made it this far without retiring earlier. There's no reason for her to continue her career. She's already hit the top and came back strong when her family was suffering. She proved everyone wrong when they kept saying she wouldn't make it. She made it all the way to 41. Her son's in college now too and it seems she wants to spend the rest of her years purely for herself.

5. [+54, -1] A lot of Korean celebrities copied Amuro Namie's style...

6. [+44, -12] When BoA was first being produced, Amuro Namie was the role model they used. Kids these days don't know how popular she was back then for her visuals and talent.

7. [+33, -6] She's the original Japanese goddess that Lee Hyori basically copied off of

8. [+30, -1] The person that Lee Hyori copied

9. [+30, -1] I normally hate Japanese singers because they're so nasally so I was pleasantly surprised when I found Amuro Namie

10. [+30, -7] Hul... she was my idol when I was younger
