The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 730

Happy New Year!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!! And, Happy Last Day of G.O’s Military Service!!! We made it. We really truly made it! True, G.O did make it bearable by staying in touch throughout the two long years he has been away, but I remember how forlorn we all were that first day ~ it seems like an eternity ago yet here we are at the 730th day. It is a holiday so I am wondering if G.O is actually off of work on his last day of service. The Lunar New Year is a high holiday across Asia and this year of the Dog celebration actually began yesterday in South Korea. So, has G.O officially completed his service and is already discharged, or will he actually be discharged tomorrow? It’s a mystery! But in keeping with my schedule here on the Countdown, it is a Fan-Camming Friday and I plan to end with another dose of nostalgia. This time coming from a moment close to my own heart, Seopyeonje. I am probably most G.O nostalgic when it comes to Seopyeonje because that is where I saw and met him for the first time. I usher out Fan-Camming Fridays and, thus, this series altogether with a revisit to the 3 March 2014 Seopyeonje showcase.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 609

On Tuesday, 17 October, G.O took to his Instagram account with this update perhaps from a salon where he was making that which is already way handsome even more gorgeous.^^ His purpose though was not to share the event unfolding. No. Instead, he wanted to call our attention to the fact that he does not have a private account. Well, that came out of nowhere. <hehe> He wrote:

저 프라이빗 계정 없어요[I do not have a private account]
사칭 제보 부탁드립니다 [Please let me know about the account pretending to be me]

And then included the hashtag:

#날왜사칭하는거짘ㅋㅋ으잌ㅋ [#WhyissomebodypretendingtobemeㅋㅋYikesㅋ]

For the record, there is no way to clone this guy. No way. See, when the gods created G.O, they broke the mold. So then, imposters ~~~> be gone!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 607

I feel like a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment today and found a nice example in fan-cam form. I thought about waiting until Friday to make it a double categoried day but then figured why wait? I am relaxing my rules these final days of G.O’s service. I should even try to challenge myself to come up with fan-cam moments for each day remaining. I am confident there are enough cams out there to satisfy that challenge and I am sure it would be cool with everyone, right? Hehehe….cams will steadily make appearances regardless of the day and if I chose that route, I would not get my One Shot moments in or finish the alphabet in The ABC’s of G.O sub-series. And you know I must keep those selca moments in rotation. Therefore, I will stay my current course. For today then I give an Eye Connect moment from the taping of the MBC Korean variety program, 매직쇼크 [Magic Shock].

Happy 8th Anniversary MBLAQ!!

October 15, 2017 marks MBLAQ’s 8th anniversary. Yes, eight years ago today MBLAQ debuted and revealed to Korean popular music and fans around the world, a versatile group with talent, vision and a stockpile of charisma. At their zenith as five, they were powerhouses on the stage, and were the kings of variety brimming with comedic timing and a natural ability to charm not only the many show hosts, MCs and DJs they met, but colleagues and fans alike. Yes, there have been highs and there have been lows, but they are still standing intact as three, as talented and charismatic as ever. I celebrate their love, friendship and unity, not only today, but every day.

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 587

Today, it is quite simple. It is Tuesday and Tuesdays are generally unremarkable. If you work a typical corporate office job like I do, Tuesday is only the second day of the work week and still seems so far from the weekend. Really, there is only one way to give Tuesday a boost and I think the best option is a blast of explosive super sexy G.O circa the Cry era. It is a G.O One Shot day and it would be unfair to limit myself to only one shot today.

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.
