For it is in giving that we receive. ~ Francis of Assisi
When I heard there was going to be an Mwave online meet & greet with MBLAQ following the release of their 6th mini album Broken, I was stoked. It would be the first time I participated in something like that and it just sounded exciting. Mwave was offering the CDs for sale with the added extra bonus of them being autographed by the men of MBLAQ. Now, I really wanted in.
Reason 9 – Under the Scorpio Sun
“We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the season in which we are born.” ~ Carl Jung
I have always been fascinated by Scorpios. The interest bordered on both curiosity and fear. If you have known any, you will agree their energy is palatable and intense. See, Scorpio sits directly opposite from my own sun sign, Taurus. Like dead across. As such, I have always felt the draw of this opposite force. It is no surprise then that when I discovered G.O was born under the sign of Scorpio, it both fascinated and excited me. For that, I list this as one of my many reasons to love Byung Hee.
Reason 8 – The G.Oatee
“A good mustache makes a man for many reasons.” – J. Oates
Van Dyke, vow-beard, pickedevant or soul patch. Call it what you will. These are just a few words used to describe the goatee. When I think of a goatee, my mind invariably goes straight to the gorgeous G.Ostach-ed one himself, G.O. Some people hate it. Others are on the fence. Me? Well I have added it to my long list of reasons as to why I love Byung Hee.
Reason 7 – Nifty Shades of Byung Hee
As he takes the hoodie wear to a level of its own (his own), so too does Byung Hee make a statement with the sunglasses he wears often choosing a particular shape and style to suit the moment (or not), and always making them look good regardless of the occasion. His fine facial features serve him well affording him the ability to wear any shape, size or color. And although he may choose to wear them to help establish a sense of anonymity, I like to think he wears them to simply increase his already existing and overflowing cool quotient.^^ It seems to add some extra special swag to his persona when he does decide to rock the decorative shaded eyewear and gives me yet another reason to love him like I do.
Reason 6 – It’s A “Rap”
When the fabulous five of MBLAQ met for the first time, Mir was convinced that G.O was slotted to be the rapper of the group. Little did he know that the man behind that cool urban swag actually possessed the velvet voice that was to become the group’s main vocal. I have to commend producer Rain for having the foresight he most certainly had to marry that very golden voice with the rap element he was firmly establishing in MBLAQ. Rain must have had his eye on Tykeys! The very cocktail of blending G.O’s sweet and delicious vocals with that of rappers Mir and Cheondoong proved to be a potent fortuitous recipe. In fact, pairing his voice with any rapper has proved to be magical. And this beautiful vocal synergy is another reason to love Byung Hee.
Reason 5 – Everybody on the Left
I happen to think left-handed people are otherworldly. There is something unique and mysterious about them and so it comes as no surprise to me that MBLAQ’s resident mischief-maker is left-handed. Call me crazy (and you probably already do), but I find that characteristic oddly attractive and rank it as one of the reasons to love the adorably sweet and delightfully left-handed Byung Hee.
Reason 4 – In The Hood
For this post, I am going to keep my reason short and sweet. Byung Hee is lovable in any style of clothing or head wear, but I happen to think he takes the art of hoodie (or a hood of any particular style) wearing to a level all of his own. It’s a hat, so to speak, (even though it is attached to something) but, not all men can rock a hat and/or hood. He can and, well, I LOVE it.^^
