The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 575

I am going to keep this One Shot very sweet and simple today. An adorable and swoon-worthy capture from MBLAQ’s variety/reality show Hello Baby. You will remember this moment and also how your hearts most assuredly melted just a little bit.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 574

I think you will agree that the overall exercise of this countdown series has placed me in a perpetual state of nostalgia. I suppose it is not all that surprising given the parcels of history I have been sharing throughout these past 500+ days. Sometimes I wonder if the nostalgia makes fans sad in some respects. It is undeniable that MBLAQ has evolved and changed since their debut in more ways than simply the change in dynamics from a five man group to three. Still, the journey to the now is an important part of their collective as well as individual journeys. Therefore, I like to look back, even way back like I will do today with a From The Studio moment and the MBC Chin Chin radio performance of This Love.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 573

I have been looking forward to sharing the fan art work of Japanese artist @cantnoir827 ever since I started this little sub-category on the Countdown. I know most, if not all A+ worldwide, have enjoyed her whimsical and playful renditions of MBLAQ over the years. Today I choose her take on G.O’s three musical theater roles: Kang Hyun Woo from Gwanghwamun Sonata, Dong Ho from Seopyeonje and Prince Ho Dong from Kingdom of the Winds.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 572

Ten days into the month of September and the updates continue. In his latest posted in the early evening hours of 10 September, G.O recycled the caption of his previous update once again captioning his upload that these days he is really happy. His really happy is making our Sunday before a long work week that much more sweeter. Agree? Happy-laced survival reports are quickly becoming my favorite.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 571

We all know how fiery and intense G.O is both on and off the stage. His intensity is one of my very favorite facets of his mercurial and mysterious nature. It must be a Scorpio thing. For as long as I can remember and perhaps comprehend the science of astrology, I have always been fascinated by Scorpios. Maybe it is because the sign itself sits directly opposite of my own on the Western astrological chart. It does not necessarily mean we are opposite in nature but in fact share many of the same attributes. But, I am getting offtrack here with the purpose of this post! For as intense as G.O may be, he seems to be equally gentle and pliant. And when that softness shines, it is best experienced in his warm smile. In the sub-series, The ABC’s of G.O, we are at the 13th letter of the alphabet. I choose to mix it up a little for today by using the romanization of the Korean word 미소 ~~>’miso’ or, smile.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 570

Even though we all can surmise by the barrage of survival report/updates G.O has been supplying us over the past seven months that he is not only doing well, but is also happy, it was really good (and I mean really REALLY good) to hear him actually say it..er, well, write it. G.O took to his Instagram account for some Friday night updating last night posting two pictures, one of which was another sigh-inducing selca.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 569

Beauty is not caused. It is. ~Emily Dickinson

I cannot deny it, nor will I ever deny that there are days when G.O pushes me past the brink of fangirl reason straight into fangirl frenzy. Fangirl frenzy. I know each fangirl is unique. I am a later model fangirl due to my advanced age and delayed entry into the fangirl arena. However, there are moments when G.O has made me forget all about my age, fangirl parameters and decorum transporting me back to my teens awkward and trembling with excitement as I watch him perform. I have talked about G.O’s subtle yet powerful stage presence. His talent will always make him shine even on a stage filled with dense choreography, pyrotechnics and other people. And when G.O wears white his power and presence seems to become even more unmistakeable. The KBS event in Gwangju on 14 October 2010 is a wonderful example, escorts me into fangirl frenzy mode, and is my choice for this Fan-Camming Friday offering.
