The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 493

Back on 29 May 2007, the fresh-on-the scene R&B trio Tykeys visited the KBS studios to record an episode of the music variety-talk show, Yoon Do Hyun’s Love Letter. You may recall way back on Day 36 I shared Tykeys’ amazing performance of Alicia Keys’ If I Ain’t Got You which the group performed for the audience that evening. Maybe it was before (or perhaps it was after that performance), Do Hyun took some time to chat with Lee Jung and got to know a little bit about his three young protégés. We learned that Su could rap, Hyun Jung could b-boy and G.O had rhythm, could dance, and was completely adorable through it all.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 491

Even if G.O believes that he cannot choose clothes, it is pretty safe to say that clothes can choose him and choose him well. Whatever he wears – be it of his own choice or the choice of a stylist or costume director, those finely woven pieces of fabric will invariably look balanced, comfortable, classy and fashionable. I have said it very often because it is true, clothes wear G.O very well. I would like to remind him (and all) of just that with my One Shot .gif today. Yes, today I want to revisit how he lit up the runway helping out designer Park Jong Chul during Seoul Fashion week in the autumn of 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 488

‘Can one desire too much of a good thing?’
~Shakespeare, As You Like It

I recalled those words spoken by Rosalind in William Shakespeare’s play, As You Like It the moment my notifications panel lit up on the morning of Monday, 12 June (on my side of the planet) and I saw that G.O had shared yet another survival report update. I thought to myself, will he continue this relentless assault on our hearts, creating a desire for more and more as we count down the days of his return? Indeed he is spoiling us and making conditions ripe for the desiring. Nevertheless, I don’t think any of us believe that there could ever be too many G.O survival reports and/or updates of any kind  . . . ever.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 487

Oh Idol Army, how I have forgotten how playful and entertaining you were! As nonsensical and crazy as the show was, it was nevertheless 16 episodes of getting to know the wonderful and diverse personalities and individual talents of our five fab crew. There are many wonderful moments I could revisit, but for today, I am choosing a moment from the final episode because where there is G.O’s voice, there is Vocal Virtuosity unfolding.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 486

Because G.O is so incredibly sweet, gentle and kind, we sometimes can forget how wicked sexy he can be. Today’s G.O One Shot is a reminder that G.O’s kind of sexy is more powerful and lethal than he himself perhaps even realizes. But, I don’t mind having the chore of reminding him today. It is Day 486 or as I am going to call it: Super Sizzling Saturday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 485

Where do begin for this Fan-Camming Friday? I had my heart set on one cam and then became totally undone when I found a different cam for a different song from the same show. It was then that I was promptly reminded that the 13-year old squealing fangirl that I thought had matured somewhat and settled into the fact that she was residing in a not so young anymore middle-aged woman, returned with a boisterous vengeance. It has been awhile since I watched a cam and screamed at the monitor the entire time but this is exactly what happened when I watched G.O rip into the fierce, flirtatious and fervid Oh Yeah back on 13 June 2010 in Iksan.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 484

I know it seems like it was just yesterday that I posted a Vocal Virtuosity moment here on the Countdown but in reality, it has been a week. This is how fast time is moving. It is ridiculous, but I am not complaining. Before we know it, it will be February and discharge day. I hope everyone is preparing for the celebration but more importantly, having G.O back. We still have some time here to ruminate over the treasures he has given us these past ten years so I will take a deep breath, calm my excitement and go deep into the vault today for a perfect throwback moment where G.O took the stage on 6 December 2009 at Rain’s Fan Meeting in Japan, and sang one of Rain’s most iconic songs, Love Story*Melt*
