Once When I Have A Lover

I had been alone on my birthdays and nothing to do on my weekends, but not I’m eagerly looking forward for those memorable days to come.” –G.NA & Rain, What I Want To Do Once I Have A Lover




G.NA, penyanyi solo wanita keturunan Korea-Kanada yang kini bermukim di Korea Selatan, merilis mini album pertamanya, “Draw G’s First Breath”, pada tanggal 14 Juli 2010. Sebelumnya, penyanyi bernama asli Gina Jane Choi ini merilis sebuah prologue song sebagai digital single pada tanggal 5 Juli 2010. Lagu ini berjudul “What I Want To Do Once I Have A Lover”, atau yang juga dikenal dengan judul “Things I Want To Do When I Have A Lover” (dalam Bahasa Korea: “Aeini Saenggimyeon Hago Sipeun Il”). Lagu ini merupakan pre-released duet song bersama penyali solo pria ternama, Rain. Lagu duet yang manis ini juga termasuk dalam studio album pertama G.NA, “Black & White”, yang dirilis pada tanggal 18 Januari 2011. “What I Want To Do Once I Have A Lover” ditulis liriknya oleh Kang Eunkyung, serta diaransemen musiknya oleh Kim Dohoon. Meskipun lagu ini tidak dirilis dalam bentuk music video (MV), sebagai sebuah prologue single, lagu ini cukup membuat nama G.NA dikenal sebagai penyanyi pendatang baru yang patut diperhitungkan waktu itu, apalagi pasangan duetnya dalam lagu ini tidak lain tidak bukan adalah Jung Ji Hoon alias Rain.
This sweet and tender song tells about a girl and a boy who always dream about having a lover in their life, and things that they want to do once they have one. They must have been alone for so long. Kissing, tripping on a train together, going on a picnic, getting a piggy back ride, having a couple ring, watching late night movies, dating in amusement parks, and making a surprise event, they eventually want to do those things to their future lover. Because they know well how it feels to be alone, they want to give their best once when they have a lover. Now that they’ve found each other, there are no more lonely days. There’ll be no more lonely birthday, and no more lonely Saturday night. And all that remain are happiness and brighter days to come. Moreover, they feel really grateful that the lover has finally come into their life. Indeed, there’s no coincidence in this life. The universe has conspired to bring up a couple together. And also, there’s a law of attraction. Anything you want and think of so much will happen someday, someway. So, don’t be afraid to have a wish, because it might come true.



“What I Want To Do Once I Have A Lover” dibuat sebuah cover version oleh rekan sesama anggota Cube Entertainment G.NA, yaitu Gayoon dari girl group 4minute, dan Yoseob, member dari boy group BEAST. Versi ini dibuat MV-nya dan diunggah ke akun situs Youtube resmi milik Cube Entertainment, beberapa hari sebelum mini album debut milik G.NA dirilis. Kolaborasi ini adalah sebuah bentuk dukungan untuk promosi G.NA sebagai rekan selabel mereka. Meskipun MV ini hanya menampilkan Gayoon dan Yoseob menyanyi bersama dalam sebuah recording studio, chemistry yang terlihat diantara mereka sangatlah manis. Benar-benar terlihat seperti sepasang kekasih yang sedang dimabuk kepayang. Karena aktivitas Rain yang tidak memungkinkan untuk membantu promosi G.NA dengan lagu ini pada waktu itu, Gayoon dan Yoseob melakukan proyek kolaborasi ini. Meskipun menyanyikan dengan gaya khas mereka masing-masing, baik pasangan G.NA-Rain maupun Gayoon-Yoseob membawakan lagu ini dengan indah. Kedua versi sanggup menyampaikan pesan manis dalam lagu ini. Indeed, whoever sings this song, it’s such a really sweet love song.

For coming to me, I’m so grateful to you.” –G.NA & Rain, What I Want To Do Once I Have A Lover
