The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 648

There is simply no denying that No Love is one of MBLAQ’s quintessential pop songs. It bursts with energy, melody and yes, sweetness. Of course, this is a group effort, but when you break it down and look at it, the bulk of the vocals were actually handled by G.O, Seungho and Mir. When the angelic voice of G.O holds some vocal weight in a song, that automatically pushes it into Vocal Virtuosity territory. Inasmuch as the studio version is pure perfection, G.O’s remarkable vocals in Nagoya during MBLAQ’s Zepp Sensation Tour in August 2013, showcased the absolute clarity, strength, control of his voice as well as the undeniable command he brings to the stage.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 626

Ok, so on 2 November, G.O took to his Instagram account with a mysterious picture update. He posted a picture of the popular Japanese food chain Yoshinoya pulling all of our G.O-radar antennae in the direction of Japan. Could he be in Japan? Possibly. Then on the evening of 3 October, G.O updated once again. This time from what possibly was the men’s room of an establishment say…like a restaurant? With no captions or hashtags, G.O is keeping us guessing. However, where he is currently is not important. What is important is that he continues to spoil us with updates. And seductive ones at that.

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 588

August in Seoul and invariably Japan, is still pretty toasty warm. Summer is in full bloom and summer wear a given. Back on 14 August 2013, the men of MBLAQ were en route to Japan to begin their Zepp Sensation Tour. G.O was rocking all kinds of summer sensation style as he ambled through Incheon that day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 549

It was a chilly and mild day in Seoul when G.O and his MBLAQ brothers took leave to Tokyo on 5 December 2013 for their Global Sensation Encore show. Sporting a jet black beanie and matching face mask, G.O was all casual, cozy and comfort as he made his way through Gimpo. And while it is true that the studded hi-tops he was wearing made his ensemble pop, my favorite thing he wore that day were his warm (and gorgeous) eye smiles.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 526

Beanie, shades and face mask will never retract from this guy’s omnipresent swag and stylish good looks. G.O proved just that back on 24 April 2012 as he glided through Gimpo Airport en route to Japan drenched in masculine shades of grey and black that coordinated like perfect pieces of a fashion puzzle. Haute airport couture. I felt like another Airport Style offering for today because sometimes watching G.O walk through an airport is like seeing him take flight from a different kind of runway altogether.

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*
