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 481

I don’t know about you, but I am rather enjoying these moments looking back at G.O’s airport style. Back in June 2012, the men of MBLAQ were embarking upon their Blaq% Asia Tour and on the 28th of the month were Indonesia bound. Casual, comfortable and dangerously handsome (as always), I once again love how G.O can take something as simple as a white t-shirt, track suit pants and baseball cap and still make it look sophisticated. Let’s break it down and have a closer look, shall we?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 471

One of the five million things I absolutely adore about G.O is how he is the perfect balance of fiercely masculine and achingly tender. On either side of those spectrums are numerous examples of each. Today I opt for a fiercely masculine moment which will always be best displayed during a performance of 저쟁이야 [This Is War]. Even at the fiercest moments of RunStay or even Oh Yeah, nothing matches the furious vocals, choreography or penetratingly intense gazes that This Is War brings. Couple that with black on black on black costumery and the performance becomes all that more powerful. There really is nothing that can remotely temper G.O’s intensity during any This Is War performance. It definitely was present at the Busan Catholic University show back in May 2012. In fact, that kind of intensity only amplified the charisma and handsomeness that oozed from the stage that day. It is Fan-Camming Friday and a blast of G.O intensity is the perfect way to usher in the weekend.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 466

It has been a while since I have had a little CF fun on the Countdown. I know it is Sunday, but sometimes Sundays are fun days, right? I am sure you remember the short burst of high octane energy the men of MBLAQ brought to their endorsement of Ball’n athletic footwear back in the late autumn of 2011. Call me crazy, but in addition to enjoying G.O as a genuinely talented artist, I admit to enjoy watching him just have a little fun.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 456

Taking this journey back to The Kingdom of the Winds has flooded my heart with emotion. It is the poignancy of G.O’s performance that calls me back over and over again to revisit the moments he spent on the Seoul Arts Center stage. Today I am offering a Vocal Virtuosity moment, but not from the stage. I choose the moment G.O and his co-star from the musical, Go Young Bin visited the Culture Bookmark show, talked about the musical, and performed the haunting 무휼과 호동의 노래 [Muhyul and Hodong’s Song].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 445

I bet you are probably wondering . . . ‘will she make it through the entire alphabet before G.O is discharged?‘ Yeah, I wonder about that too, especially since he has a little over nine months remaining in his service and the way time is moving, I may lose track and not see my way through all 26 letters. But I like a challenge, as trite and ridiculous as this one may seem. Building vocabulary is great exercise for the mind, and seeking out ways to describe G.O is just another way of keeping fit!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 434

Because I essentially have the heart of a child and own a bit of a playful nature myself, I cannot help but bring a new (and cheeky) sub-category 434 days into the Countdown. Outside of celebrating G.O each and every day of his service, one of my favorite parts of this countdown journey has been coming up with sub-categories to help guide me. Some of those categories are perhaps somewhat serious while others are a bit more quirky and (hopefully) fun. This latest idea came to me suddenly and falls directly into the ‘fun‘ side of the spectrum. I am calling it The ABC’s of G.O. My goal is to make my way through the alphabet, choosing a word for each letter that I believe describes G.O. I will try to veer from the obvious and will dig deep into my Thesaurus. It may prove to be challenging, but I am ready. Beginning at the beginning today with the letter A.
