"Key of Heart" is BoA's 20th Japanese single and 6th Korean single. The single was available solely in CD+DVD format in Japan with a "special summer low price" and first pressing to commemorate this for being her 20th single.

Compared to previous singles, the sales for "Key of Heart" were low, but this was due to BoA being preoccupied with other projects and the lack of promotion from Avex Trax.

In the Korean version of Key Of Heart the music video, it features Donghae from Super Junior. The music videos Key Of Heart show a sad love story. BoA was in a relationship with Donghae who gives her a necklace with a heart pendant (a couple pendant). On her first performance, Donghae decides to give her flowers before she goes on stage and ends up in an accident due to which he dies. A scientist decides to make him a cyborg and succeeds in making a cyborg Donghae. Donghae notices that BoA is wearing the pendant he had given her before he died and realizes that she was the one he loved. He then appears in all of her performances/public appearances and takes photos of her. During one of these outings he sees her current boyfriend and is heartbroken but continues taking photos of her. On another occasion, he goes to take photos of her during her rehearsal and a stage light nearly falls on her. He quickly leaps in and saves her. She picks up his camera and sees her photos on it. The video ends with them crossing paths and her noticing the heart pendant attached to his camera as a charm. She sees the photos of their past and starts crying as the security guards don't let her go to Donghae.
