The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 604

I think you will agree that G.O’s steady updates over these past eight months have been one of the ways he has shown his appreciation for his fans. He seems to want to stay in contact, to communicate, to reciprocate, and to even let us take this particular journey with him as he completes his military service. He has given us beautiful selcas, celebrated the wonderful upgrades he has made to his recording studio, as well as let us take a peek into how he relaxes and enjoys his downtime. G.O’s connect to his fans from what I have seen has been seamlessly congruent with the kind of celebrity he truly is: warm, friendly, humble and gracious. When I take a look back at G.O’s ‘fan service’ moments well before I knew who he was, nothing has changed from then to now. Sure he has matured; but when it comes to appreciating his fans, that has remained constant. For today’s Fan-Camming Friday offering, I choose a sweet fan appreciation moment from our affable main vocal captured back on 13 February 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 603

I cannot control myself when it comes to reminiscing and reflecting on Seopyeonje. The moments and memories of G.O’s Korean musical stage debut have imprinted and left their mark on me. I have recently been revisiting many of the Dong Ho specific songs from the musical and started rewatching videos from the 3 March 2014 showcase, particularly G.O’s performance of 흔적 [Traces]. Even though I understood the premise and storyline of Seopyeonje, I never really explored the lyrical content of the songs. When I attended my first Seopyeonje performance, I did not need to understand the lyrics because I felt the meaning being conveyed. In looking a little closer at 흔적 now however, I have discovered a deeper poignancy in the song; and, there is no better master at delivering poignancy in a song than G.O. Today, I share another Vocal Virtuosity moment from Seopyeonje.

If I were to drop G.O into a cosmic futuristic fantasy comic book, manga or anime where his intergalactic powers included subduing you with a single glance, I would envision him to look as rendered in the piece of fan art I share today.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 599

It is Day 599 of G.O’s military service. I cannot believe that come tomorrow, he will be completing 600 of his 730 days. It is astounding how quickly the time has gone by. Maybe for some of you it feels like it has dragged but don’t worry, when you get to be my age it will speed up nicely for you, and then you will long for those days when it felt like it dragged! This is true. So we hit another milestone tomorrow and I am already celebrating. I cannot help it ~ I am getting very excited for his return. But, I still have 132 more days to fill here on the countdown, so I will try to keep my emotions in check. I am making it difficult for myself with today’s choice for our G.O One Shot. It is a .gif day and I decided on a moment from his small screen MV work with Ailee back in 2012 because quite frankly, G.O will show you . . . his eye gaze game is strong.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 598

Have you ever looked an opal gemstone? They are so unique. It seems as if there is an entire separate world living within in the stone itself. It has movement and captures light in a translucent vivid way. Known as the ‘Eye Stone,’ opals are like lightening in a rainbow, flashing their brilliance even with the slightest movement. They are pleasing to the sight, a seductive stone associated with love, passion, emotion and desire. They are also considered to be an inspirational stone to artists who write, dance, sing and play music. But what has any of this to do with G.O? Well, we have reached the letter O of The ABC’s of G.O and my word choice has opal as its foundation. Yes, to me, G.O is like a brilliant opal, he is opalescent.
