April 5, 2014 ~ The Night an Idol Stole My Heart

20140405_213544-3

It was only my second visit to Seoul. I was alone. The night was clear and cool. I arrived to the theater late, too late to see the show. I arrived with no expectations, the least of which to have my heart irrevocably stolen….with a smile and a handshake. Today (albeit Easter for most) marks the one year anniversary of the very evening I had the honor, the privilege, and the pleasure of coming face-to-face with G.O, the musical actor…or more appropriately ~ G.O, the charming man. To say it was life-changing is putting it mildly.

The Color for Spring is BLAQ

10872897_732123946877255_3203725035457964068_o

Ok yeah, it was a rough autumn and a rather excruciating winter. Coupled with that, the prolonged hibernation of our beloved three MBLAQ teddy bears hasn’t helped matters much either. Yet as we enter spring, it seems they have begun to push themselves through the soil of those darker days and are starting to re-blossom as a music-making trio. With news of a new album in the works, hope does indeed spring eternal.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

WLW-Features-Sisterhood-Bloggers

A couple of years ago I sat down with a Jyotishi to have a look at my birth chart in order to see how my karmic path was affecting my present life. Yes, I realize that sounds like a bunch of new-agey hocus pocus.  But, I happen to believe in the inexplicable beauty of how the universe and our lives collide. I am weird like that.

Jyotish, or the science of light, is actually an ancient form of astrology that has been practiced for centuries throughout India. It is a Vedic science that basically describes the planetary patterns at the time of our birth and can give us valuable clues to understanding our life’s journey. When the Jyotishi asked me if I liked to write, I casually said yes. He then told me with urgent insistence to start writing and to begin right away because it would change my life forever.

Softly Behind The Curtain With MBLAQ

%ED%81%AC%EA%B8%B0%EB%B3%80%ED%99%98_1

Twilight drops her curtain down, and pins it with a star.

It has now been two months since I have seen G.O. Two months since I watched his emotion erupt and his heart spill out all over the Curtain Call stage. Now, a new year has begun and I still have not been able to adequately sum up my experience in words and transfer them here to my blog. There are far too many emotions…..still. Frankly, I don’t think I am able to sum it all up. But, I will try. I will try to explain those bittersweet moments watching G.O perform alongside his MBLAQ brothers on those two emotional evenings in late November. I will attempt to describe what it felt like to watch him offer up to us his remarkable talent. I will share how excited I am about his future. And finally, I want to tell you why I am grateful he chose me to be his fan.

He’s A Free and Gentle Flower…

2015-01-16 21_49_41-[OM] 150116 Wild Flower 지오 _ 김해 신년음악회 - YouTube

On January 16, 2015, G.O had his first stage of the new year and it was a delicate reminder of how truly gifted he is as a vocalist. The Gimhae Arts & Sports Center held its Big Happy Concert on the evening of the 16th, and invited G.O to perform. Fans of this amazing man were indeed hungry to see him even though the effects of the two Curtain Call shows in late November had not yet worn off. You see, once he throws out the line to reel you in and captures your heart and soul, you simply have to surrender to the ever-present urge to want to see him over and over. Trust me, this is a fact. This first stage was special not only for us, but even more so for him.

When The Universe Conspires – Prelude to the Curtain Call

1415292554857

I had a plan. It was a good plan. I had the goods. They were nice goods. And, I had a bias (G.O) ready to celebrate a birthday on November 6th. Having given Federal Express a good chunk of my hard-earned change via my MBLAQ Love Package campaign, I figured they would be the best bet to get my bias his birthday gifts, and do so well in advance of the actual celebration day. Best laid plans, right? It seems Fedex along with the Universe (and the Suwon Lotte Department Store) had something else in mind. When the birthday box failed to pass through customs in Seoul and was returned to me, it seemed the only way that darling man was going to receive his gift from my Byung Hee World blog partner, Nelly (MyMyooz) and I, was if I would deliver it to him myself.

When Your Bias Makes You Rethink Winter

B3NxIpQCIAIpDs8

There are many reasons for a native Chicagoan to dislike (and often detest and incessantly complain about) the most brutal of all seasons, winter. Winter often denotes the transition of everything in nature that was once warm, light, lush, in bloom and alive into something that is cold, brittle, barren and dying. Winter is a time of hibernation, and also a time to leave.

When I  discovered that the new MBLAQ mini album being released on November 25th was to be entitled Winter and was to be an album of ballads, my heart felt heavy and somewhat sad. At the same time, however, hearing that this album would feature self-composed songs by the men, and G.O would be producing, I immediately became impatient to hear it. Now, after having it on repeat and listening to it non-stop, I have only one complaint: there are simply not enough songs.
