The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 222

I love everything about Mirror. It is a unique and tragically beautiful song that our amazing trio sunk every bit of emotion into when they introduced it to us in June 2015. And although I have not known him for very long, nor could I be so bold to assume I know his heart, what I think I can surmise adequately about G.O is that he will never shy away from revealing emotion. In my opinion, the veil of sadness that enveloped him throughout the Mirror promotions was not cathartic nor healing. It was, however, intense and emotional. On 11 June 2015, before the men of MBLAQ brought Mirror to the M Countdown stage, MNet captured G.O in a gorgeous focused fancam.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 221

For Day 221 of G.O’s service, the One Shot offering will be fan art. This is special fan art because it was a gift I received from my friend Marisol who is an extremely gifted and talented artist. She has given me more than one piece of G.O art and all are equally beautiful. I will start with this lovely take on G.O’s character Hyun Woo from the musical, Gwanghwamun Sonata.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 220

Clearly I am feeling nostalgic remembering the early months of 2014. It is with good reason. I had just fallen hard for MBLAQ’s main vocal and with it, the discovery of an entirely new world. It was exciting and although I was arriving late to the G.O realm, I was arriving just in time for a new Japanese single, a comeback, and yes, those two very important and pivotal musical theater roles. Today, I just feel like being devastated by the overwhelmingly beautiful visuals and tender sounds of  MBLAQ’s Japanese single, Still In Love.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 219

Light can be defined without sun.
Sweetness can be defined without honey.
Fragrance can be defined without a rose, but beauty cannot be defined without you.

At the close of 2013, I was well on my journey into falling deeply under G.O’s spell. It was fortunate in that there was much to look forward to in the new year, specifically an MBLAQ comeback, complete with a Japanese single release as well as two starring roles for our up and coming musical actor, G.O. Before the release of Broken and subsequent promotions, and before G.O’s Korean musical theater debut in Seopyeonje, the men of MBLAQ took part in a WAPOP concert at the Dome Art Hall of the Seoul Children’s Grand Park. Too much beautiful on the stage that day. Too much.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 218

If anything has been established here with this Countdown series (as well as the blog in general since having my heart commandeered by G.O), it is clear I am sentimental. I guess it won’t surprise anyone that MBLAQ’s guest appearance at the K-Pop Festival in Changwon back in October 2012 pulled at my heartstrings a little given the fact that G.O was born in Changwon. It is kind of cool getting to go back to the place you were born to show the hometown crowd how well you have grown up, right?~^^

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 217

Imagine your bias gets his first solid, non-cameo role in a hyped-up drama with a pretty impressive cast. Then, imagine the network airing the drama decides to hold an event where your bias, along with two of his co-stars show up to promote that drama the same day it is set to premier. This is exactly what happened on 30 May 2012 when SBS brought G.O, Im Ji Kyun and Song Ha Yoon together to have a watch event with fans for the premier of the Korean drama 유령 [Ghost].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 216

The Picnic Live broadcast is probably one the best live performances caught on tape of MBLAQ. Performing a few of their classic hits backed by a live band (ska punk group Lazybone) resulted in a powerhouse performance. There is nothing quite like the energy of a live band and when that band is a rock band, the energy generated on stage rises and hovers like an electrical storm swirling around igniting passion and emotion in the songs, and in the performance. 전쟁이야 [This Is War] is a force to be reckoned in and of itself.  It was extra special powerful at Picnic Live and watching G.O completely segue into rock mode during rehearsal (and subsequently the performance) was proof that 전쟁이야 had all the makings of a serious rock anthem.
