The End Is Only The Beginning ~ Welcome Back, G.O!

And with a huge sigh and jubilant smile I can finally say . . . G.O has successfully completed his military service!!  This end however signifies a greater beginning. In less than one week’s time we will get what many of us have longed for since he enlisted (and perhaps even before that): a new song!! Yes, back on 10 February, when he chatted with his fans in MBLAQ’s Daum Cafe, G.O said a new digital single will be released on 23 February (a duet). He also said he has a schedule set for the four days following that release, one of which we already know about: his Fan Meeting on 24 February. The days that follow are mysteries that will be revealed at that fan meeting. But he did mention that more new music will be coming in March-April. The excitement is almost too much to contain! Are you ready? Because I know that I am. I have been ready since 18 February 2016!!

Welcome Back, G.O!!!

We have missed you and are ready to feel the magic of your music, your talent and indeed, your artistic heart, once again.~😍

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 729

The nostalgic moment for today goes way back to December 2009. It was probably one of the earliest interviews G.O gave following his debut with MBLAQ. I could be wrong but since it was December 2009, I am probably partially correct.^^ This is an early Star Interview and I love it because I feel as if I am meeting G.O for the first time all over again. Take a moment with me on this second to last day of his military service, to enjoy the articulate poise and charm of MBLAQ’s dearest main vocal. Continue reading

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 727

We often put our favorite artists and idols on pedestals far above others and at times, even above ourselves. I know I am guilty of it where G.O is concerned and when I find myself doing it, I pause and remind myself that he is an ordinary man whose life has had some extraordinary moments. At the end of the day however, G.O is human just like you and I. It is very endearing to me when he reminds us of that by way of updating his SNS in the wee hours of the morning with a picture or pictures of the past. It is endearing because he really is not so high on that pedestal to have forgotten his journey and at times seems rather nostalgic over it. Maybe that is what happened on 9 February when he updated his Instagram account with the above. The bulk of this countdown series has been an exercise in nostalgia even when my own history with this amazing artist of man is only in its fourth year. There are four days remaining in his service and in keeping with the trend, I have decided that I will see this series end with equal nostalgia.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 726

It has not been too often when I have sat down to write an entry for this countdown that I have found myself without any real notion of what to write. I have had a steady map that I have followed for the past 725 days. Today, I was blank. I know I have not covered every single performance, variety show clip, or even scratched the surface of sharing a fraction of the photographs that exist of this beautiful man. But I have tried to show you little pieces of G.O to help get us through his time away completing his military service. I was browsing Naver blogs when I came across a blog for Korean clothing designer Vantvaart and there was G.O. So I thought why not celebrate the endorsement along with a revisit of G.O’s wonderful performance of 못잊겠어요 [I Can’t Forgeton the Immortal Song 2 stage for the King of Kings Special on 19 November 2011.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 725

As excited as I am that there are only six days remaining in G.O’s service, I am simultaneously sentimental. I have always been a sentimental type and it seems as though the support and attention I have given to G.O these past four plus years have rendered me even more sentimental. I guess it is because now I have a history with MBLAQ and, specifically G.O. I have moments that I can look back on wherein I have seen him, interacted with him and have experienced not only his immeasurable talent, but his kindness and graciousness. For my last One Shot, I am going to succumb to my sentimentality by sharing one of the pictures I took of G.O during his last performance before enlisting.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 724

Do we have time for one more G.O Dance Break?! Yes, we do! With one week left of his service, I think we can officially get the party started. What better way to enjoy this final Saturday before G.O’s discharge than to travel back to MBLAQ’s Men in Blaq show on 20 August 2011 and the provocative dance moves of  You. I wondered if I would have time to give You some dance break love and I guess the stars aligned to see fit that, not only that I could . . . but I should.
