Sometimes I need to step away from the deep emotion, longing, and even sadness I so very much love in G.O’s ballad collection and just admire his body waves in You during the Blaq% tour.
Let’s face it, the body wave heavy choreography in You needs to be consumed in small portions. And while I will agree that some may argue that leader Seung Ho has the premier body wave mechanics of the group, the other half of the 87-Line possesses some pretty stellar body waves of his very own.
Looking good, right? Inasmuch as G.O did do some dancing while in Tykeys, their performances were perhaps more vocal-oriented with minimal choreography. MBLAQ, on the other, gave G.O the balance of both. I think it challenged him but ultimately even he would have to agree that not only does he have spectacular vocal acuity, he also has great rhythm, balance and poise as a dancer.
For me personally, if G.O chose not to dance in the future and just sing, that would be ok. His voice is movement enough with strength to shake the foundations of your heart and soul. The way I see it, G.O’s voice is the quintessential dance partner. It is a tender embrace that holds you as it sweeps you across the emotional landscape of your own heart.
That said, I certainly will never discourage G.O from dancing or from revisiting the steamy body wave. It only makes him a hundred fold more lethal on stage. Like he needs any more ammunition!!
