The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 527

I don’t know what was in the air back on 24 August 2013 at MBLAQ’s Love Beat fan sign in Sinchon, but whatever it was certainly made G.O extra special chatty, playful and in some instances, impatient. It is another Fan-Camming Friday here on the countdown and I am opting for an eleven minute edit of G.O’s mischief in Sinchon. Unfortunately, there are no subtitles, but the video is entertaining nonetheless for whenever G.O playfully interacts with fans, fun is sure to be had.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 526

Beanie, shades and face mask will never retract from this guy’s omnipresent swag and stylish good looks. G.O proved just that back on 24 April 2012 as he glided through Gimpo Airport en route to Japan drenched in masculine shades of grey and black that coordinated like perfect pieces of a fashion puzzle. Haute airport couture. I felt like another Airport Style offering for today because sometimes watching G.O walk through an airport is like seeing him take flight from a different kind of runway altogether.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 525

There’s always a reason for the ddaeng!

When is MBLAQ and variety not a good match? I know I am biased. In all honesty, I have to confess that I have not watched other groups in variety shows outside of that hilarious Running Man episode with Seung Ho and Joon wherein there were other idol duos guesting along with them. So I have no real point of reference. However I do know one thing: MBLAQ sets the bar pretty high (for me) when it comes to variety entertainment. True, they have guested on many. But if you focus on the core four: Idol Army, Sesame Player, Hello Baby and Idol Manager, I think you will agree that MBLAQ owned Korean variety from 2009 through 2012. Today I am going way back to MBLAQ’s variety infancy to revisit a moment from Idol Army, Episode 10 [The Ski Resort Special] and MBLAQ’s National Music Show where bad boy G.O got to show a little vocal prowess and lots of humor with Rain’s Rainism.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 524

I was looking forward to the letter J because I knew the word I would be choosing would be ‘jeweled.’ The word holds two meanings for me when I think in terms of describing G.O. First, the obvious: the tasteful and attractive way in which he accessorizes with jewelry. And second, the more esoteric idea being that G.O himself is a gem ~ indescribably precious and invaluable. Corny? Perhaps. Nevertheless, it is my choice for today’s installment of The ABC’s of G.O.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 523

It will never worry me if any of you dear readers think that I have fallen into senility when you visit the blog during this countdown series and discover that I am once again writing about the perfect balance of the sweet and the sexy that exists in G.O. You can call me redundant and I will not mind because I will never tire of declaring this fact. The variety of proof available forces me to continue visiting this phenomenon! Today, I came across a blog from a Korean blogger who discussed this very fact. She called G.O a chameleon, able to segue comfortably between incredulous sweetness and undeniable sexy. Girlfriend was on point. Once again, I cannot help but take another peek at the perfect and attractive yin and yang of G.O.

Just a reminder to USA+ that the group order for Seung Ho’s solo Japanese CD デモアイタイヨ will close Monday, 24 July 2017. As a reminder to all fans living outside of Japan who want to order independently, you can do so after creating an account with shipping provider Tenso.

Ivy has now released photos of each individual CD cover (Types A through E), and I must say our quiet leader is looking classy, elegant, sophisticated and yes, very handsome.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 522

I wanted today to be another Vocal Virtuosity day after hearing One recently. Even though it is a MBLAQ group effort, Mr. Main Vocal proves predominant throughout the song. As you know, when that happens, I like to bring it to the forefront here on the countdown because as much as I adore all of MBLAQ’s music, when my lovely bias takes the vocal helm in a song, it rapidly moves up my fave list. I forgot how feel good One is and how crystalline and powerful G.O’s vocals are throughout the song. Even though I have been diligently searching, I could not find an actual live version or performance. If any of you are aware, please post a link to in the comments section. I did recall however the 13 September 2011 KBS broadcast of The Lord of Magic show wherein our fab five performed a wonderful and remarkably sweet LED light show using One as a backdrop music to the performance.
