The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 399

Three years ago today G.O made his Korean musical stage debut with his first performance as the troubled pansori artist Dong Ho in the haunting musical Seopyeonje. I cannot believe it has been three years. Oh how I would love to see this musical revived again with G.O returning to reprise his role as Dong Ho. For the moment, I will simply hold on to that dream while revisiting G.O’s first curtain call on the Seopyeonje stage on this 399th day of his service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 388

Is :56 seconds of G.O singing an excerpt from a ballad sufficient enough to place it here on the Countdown in the Vocal Virtuosity category? You bet it is. Back in May 2010, just prior to the release of MBLAQ’s second mini album Y, MBLAQ’s handsome hyung line made a stop at the MNET radio studios. In under a minute, the combination of G.O’s voice accompanied by Seung Ho’s piano continually proves to me that these two artists were perhaps always destined to work together. Indeed, this post can hold equal weight in the Heavenly Collaborations category.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 383

It is difficult getting back into the groove and routine of my every day life since returning from Seoul. Keeping up with my countdown posts however seems to be flowing ok. At least one thing is staying consistent. For some reason (probably because I have the heart of a five-year old child), I am really looking forward to hitting Day 400. Milestones. You know how I feel about those.~^^ Even though there will be over 300 days remaining at that point, I still find myself full of excitement as we get closer to discharge. Likewise, every moment I get to sit down and write about this amazing young man makes me happy. Today (as you can see) is a One Shot day. It is also time for a one shot .gif. Lately, I have been longing for Mirror ~ the song, performances, just anything Mirror-related. To quench a little bit of that thirst, I will share a few short G.O .gifs from one of the many performances of MBLAQ’s exquisite and haunting title song.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 381

Inasmuch as MBLAQ’s 12 February 2012 Inkigayo performance of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] was in fact a good-bye stage and the song serious and intense, it still did not deter G.O from some playful stage antics in any event. It is a well-established fact that I find G.O’s quiet and simmering sex appeal outrageously attractive. What makes him even more disarming is the fact that his brand of sexy is twofold. Yes, it’s true. Whether he is caught up in the passionate emotion of a song or in the throes of complete mischief, the man is the very definition of attractive and sexy. For today, I am choosing a Playful G.O moment that confirms that even at his mischievous and playful best, G.O is simply irresistible.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 375

Although I have not given them their just due here during this Countdown series, it is no secret that G.O possesses perhaps one of the loveliest pair of hands bestowed upon a human….ever. There has been much documentation about his very elegant and graceful hands. I may be in a groove with this series with its plethora of sub-categories already in place; but with 356 days remaining, there is always room for one more so I am adding G.O’s Graceful Hands to the mix because there is much proof documenting such and as is evident in this Countdown series (and blog generally), I have no problem praising him, even something as seemingly trivial as admiring his hands! But…they are beautiful.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 372

Gratitude is learned at very early age. I am certain most all of us were taught as children that when you receive something, you say thank you. But not all are as well-versed in the art of being gracious for things that not necessarily tangible: admiration, support, respect, love. Often we seem to forget that these too are great gifts to receive and as such should require equal gratitude even if we cannot touch them or hold them. G.O understands the art of gratitude. And I suspect it has been with him ever since his cognizance developed and he could understand the concept. He certainly understood it extremely well in the early days of his career. I thought it was a good day to share another installment of G.O’s Fabled Fan Service here on the countdown.
