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.

When Your Bias Stakes His Claim

HLQh7

I have to be honest. At this time last year, I thought there was no way anyone in Korean entertainment (music, movies, drama or otherwise) was going to topple Rain from the throne in my fangirl kingdom. If you would have asked me if it this could ever happen, I would have unequivocally answered ‘No’! So please imagine my own shock when it actually did happen. And, it happened with a force and fury I was not even prepared for. I have been asked by a sweet follower of the blog who has now become a treasured friend, to expound on the how, the why and the when MBLAQ’s G.O swooped in, staked his claim as my one true bias, and yes, promptly stole me away from his former mentor, Rain. So Endang, dear…I write this post for you.♥

Beautiful Bias Birthday Boy – Happy Birthday Byung Hee!

Screen Shot 2014-07-03 at 6

On this precise day last year, I was in the middle of preparing to go to Japan to spend time with some amazing Clouds and to see the other Jung (Ji Hoon) perform live on the Zepp Toyko stage. My….how things have changed for this fangirl! Twelve months later, I find myself preparing to travel again, but this time to Seoul to see the younger Jung (Byung Hee) perform live on stage with his MBLAQ brothers. Before I make that journey, however, I must pause a moment here to celebrate the man who has so undeniably stolen my heart, invaded my soul, and who has commandeered all of my attention steadily for the past 11 months. He turns a delightful 28 years old today and I just need to say, 병희씨…..생일 축하합니다….사랑해요!

When Your Bias Tweets and Quiets the Storm

IMG_20140815_105330

The last two weeks have been an emotional roller coaster of sorts for A+ with news swirling around about the fate and future of MBLAQ. Unauthorized (seemingly so) releases of information stating that Lee Joon (Lee Chang Sun) and Thunder (Park Sang Hyun) were not renewing their respective contracts with J Tune and, in essence, leaving the group, had fans across the globe held in disbelief that this could be happening to our beloved MBLAQ. Grief and sadness flooded social media. How could this be happening….and just two short days prior to MBLAQ’s 5th anniversary.
