10.01.10 [dkpopnews] G.Na: “Rain’s like a family friend”

Korean singer G.NA does not find Rain sexy at all as her idols are model-actors Daniel Henney and Dennis O’Neil

Who: Canadian-Korean singer G.NA. Born in Surrey, British Columbia, and raised there. Her real name is Choi Gina

Age: 23

Background: Choi was originally set to debut three years ago in a girl group, with other members such as Kim Yu Bin (who would later find fame with Wonder Girls) and Kim Yu Jin (better known as After School’s UEE). The group disbanded in 2007 after their talent agency ran into financial difficulties.

Restyled as G.NA, the K-pop and R&B singer made her debut in South Korea earlier this year. Her duet with Rain, Things I Want To Do When I Have A Lover, was released on July 5.

She was in town on Wednesday to promote her first five-track mini album, Draw G’s First Breath.

Sell us your album in 20 words or less.

‘There are different genres in my album, including fast songs and slow ballads, making it stand out from the rest.’

You worked with Rain in your slow track, Things I Want to Do When I Have A Lover. What was it like working with him?

‘It was an amazing experience. When I first found out about it, I thought it was a joke and kept asking if it was for real. It was exciting, fun and nerve-racking at the same time.’

Is Rain the sexiest man you have worked with? If not, who do you think is the sexiest man in Korea?

‘Personally, I don’t find Rain sexy at all. He is tall, good-looking and very charismatic but he feels more like a family friend to me. I find Korean-American model-actors Daniel Henney and Dennis O’Neil very cute and adorable. The two of them have very chiselled features and good bodies.’

The Korean media always say you are a sex symbol because of your good figure. What do you think of that and what do you think is the sexiest part of yourself?

‘I see it as a compliment. However, I do not see myself as a sex symbol and I don’t want to sell my album based on that.

I feel that the sexiest part of my body is my wrist: I have very small bones and the bones at my wrist pop out. I also like my lips because they are small.’

Where would you draw the line when it comes to performing in sexy outfits?

‘I would not mind nudity as long as it is tastefully done, and for artistic reasons. If it is raunchy and sleazy, then I wouldn’t do it. It really has to depend on the concept of my album and songs.’

Now that you are a star, what do you miss most about being a normal person?

‘I miss having a personal life, and having the time to do my own things. Stepping into the industry is not an easy thing and definitely not all about the glitz and glamour.’

    She grew up in Canada and her types are mixed races, more of the Caucasian/Asian ones. It just so happened that Rain is not the sexy looking type for her. Who knows !. Maybe the feeling is mutual. And G.Na girl, you are so . . . blind ! ! ! She’s probably not into those sexy dancer/actor/performer/model macho types like Rain, but more of the actor . . . er . . hmm. . . model types…that’s just it. Oh well, to each it’s own.

    I agree with felisshi, She’s into Caucasian-Asian mix race…And she used to live here in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada so her taste is more likely westernized…She’s used to making honest remarks/comments and express herself freely. So her hometown is just 20 minutes drive from mine eh? But we differ in taste I’m so into Rain, for me Rain is the sexiest man alive, hottest, sexiest, most gorgeous man on earth (note: I’m married, I should say my husband is the most handsome and sexiest man on earth, shouldn’t I?) hahaha…

    But GNa girl, let me tell you, I’m sure you’re not Rain’s type either… He’s more into an A lister type like him huh! hahahaha

    “PUULEASE”………she doesn’t find Rain sexy, but she DID NOTICE that he’s tall, good looking and charismatic. Adjectives usually used to describe…..Oh, I don’t know….Ummm…..SEXY people!……..Girlfriend, you can tell that lie to someone else!

    G.NA ..You must be blind.’ darling…Or could it be the other way around? That our Ji HOON does’nt find you attractive or sexy at all?

    I think she’s trying to avoid any possible rumour since she’s worked with Rain. didn’t know she’s from Surrey BC, very close to my city! yeah, do us proud Gna.
