Younha is a Korean artist that does a lot more work in Japan than in her home country. This is why she is considered to be somewhat of a competitor to BoA.
Younha's popularity grew with her second single, "Houkiboshi", which was used as an ending song for the anime Bleach. Younha is only the second Korean-born Japanese singer (after BoA) to reach the top 20 on the Oricon album charts (Japan's music charts that rates music releases based on sales).
Currently, Younha is trying to go back to her Korean roots by releasing her first ever Korea album named A Perfect Day for Love Declaration. Younha also recently released two Korean singles: AUDITION and Password 468.

Why Younha is a Featured Artist
Younha was chosen because she is one my favourite Japanese singer. Younha also sings in Korean and I equally enjoy her Korean songs. I consider Younha one of the most unique Japanese artists since she sings many of her songs while playing a piano.
Now listen to Younha's only Japanese album, Go Younha!
Here's a playlist containing all of Younha's Japanese PVs. Enjoy!
