In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, 16 August 2017, MBLAQ’s undisputed king of selcas, the charming god of communication himself, struck again with another survival report for the month of August.
This first Vocal Virtuosity moment for the month of August will be an extension of the last one in July. Yes, I am returning to the Seopyeonje stage and not for one of the soothing ballads. I ended July with the roar of Alive and burst into August with the haunting 청춘이 묻는다 [Youth Asks].
When I made the decision to do this countdown series I remember telling myself that I would mostly post pictures with occasional videos. My goal was to just memorialize each day because in the back of my head, I knew 730 days meant 730 posts and to be quite honest, I wasn’t sure I was up to the task. I figured posting a picture a day would not be overly demanding and I would be able to honor G.O each day as he completed his service. It seems I am incapable of restraining myself when it comes to G.O. So whenever I come to a G.O One Shot day, I am reminded of my original plan and just smile. Best laid plans, right? My last One Shot picture was from The Black Pearl. I share another from that series today.
On 27 April 2010, G.O hit the radio waves as a guest on DJ Hong Jin Kyung’s Music Space. Usually when I write about in studio radio show appearances it is because G.O at some point in the broadcast sings a song. That did not happen on this particular day in the studio, but I wanted to write about this appearance for a couple of reasons. One is because of the cute pictures A Lucky Day captured of G.O either arriving or leaving the station. The other reason is well . . . kind of ridiculous. Let me explain.
I think my desire to start posting more fan art is so I can look at that adorable picture of G.O up there with his dinosaur drawing! He just looks so cute and the overall composition of the picture is very warm and inviting. The soft pillows, the beautiful trees, the way the sunlight is filtering through the windows. It kind of sets the stage for art, doesn’t it? Today’s offering comes from Russian artist, Lera Pak.
Why do I have a feeling that these remaining 189 days are going to be invaded and duly taken over by Selca Magic moments here on the Countdown? Could it be because that at ten days into the month of August, G.O has updated for the 7th time? I say let the invasion continue! So yes, on the evening of 10 August, our beloved main vocal updated once again with a pic of himself with our beautiful leader, Yang Seungho. Kyaaa!!
I think you will agree that the best G.O fan-camming moments are generally those captured of him singing – at least I know they are my personal favorite. There are some days though when I just like to watch him engage with fans and talk, even when I don’t understand all of what he is saying. This might sound a bit quirky, but to my ears, G.O has an equally nice speaking voice. The lower tone in his voice may not be as deep as say, Joon’s, but it has a deep resonance about it that is incredibly soothing to the ear (and heart). If you really want to get a taste of it, listen to him during radio broadcasts (especially the Sweet Music Box series he did with Jung Ga Eun). My Fan-Camming Friday offering today then is a little bit of G.O’s gentle speaking voice as he interacted with fans at the Lecaf fan sign in Busan back on 16 February 2013.
