The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 577

If I told you you were beautiful, would you date me on the regular?

Sometimes a Vocal Virtuosity moment shows up when I least expect it. So as you all know, I joined the MBLAQ party train late in the game. As a result, I missed a lot. A-LOT. Even if G.O had to complete four years of military service I still do not think that would give me enough time to see, hear and experience everything he has done these past ten years he has been living his dream as a singer, composer and actor. There is SO MUCH. I love it of course as it is keeping me busy while he is away. So today I discovered something I had not seen (or heard) before and I knew immediately that I wanted to secure it in the Vocal Virtuosity archives. I know all of you dedicated MBLAQ-philes remember the ETN Entertainment News Interview back on 23 June 2010. You also know then that even if it was brief, G.O covered some Justin Timberlake.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 550

Sometimes I find simple delight in the shortest and perhaps more obscure moments of MBLAQ’s (and specifically G.O’s) past. As I have mentioned before, one of the best parts of doing this countdown series to help pass the days of G.O’s military service has been being able to go back and dig into the MBLAQ archives to remember the fun, the music, and the moments. Today I am digging into the J-Files because I want to share a brief moment from September 2012 when G.O turned choreographer to help teach MBLAQ’s Baby U! choreography to the host of the Japanese show, Hallyu Factory.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 507

There are a million ways in which I could show you how humble G.O is. But you really only need to meet him to experience it. In my opinion, humbleness is something that cannot be faked. It is either a part of who you are, or it is not. Some may mistake humbleness as self-doubt or low self-worth. But being humble is different. Markers of self-doubt or self-worth might include phrases like, I can’t or I am not good enough. Whereas I believe humbleness may be marked by phrases such asI will work harder or I will learn and improve, even in the wake of accolades. G.O has been told countless times from fans, contemporaries, producers, directors, and the like that he possesses a unique and special talent; yet he always reminds us that he will try harder or do better. This could not have been better demonstrated than when he received the 8th Korean Musical Awards award for best newcomer actor for his portrayal of the tragic young pansori artist Dong Ho in Seopyeonje.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 497

I admit that I am still mulling over G.O’s comment in his Daum Cafe chat about not being able to choose clothes which was kind of his way of saying he did not have fashion sense. This of course is nonsense! It seems rather clear that G.O’s self-deprecating humor has traveled with him throughout the years. An early instance came back in March 2010 during the press conference held introducing the cable fashion program, Coco & Marc 2.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 480

Eloquence is described as being good with words and expressing things in a pleasing or persuasive manner. It can also be described as possessing the quality of graceful expression. I have always appreciated G.O’s soft spoken manner and even when there are times I do not understand a word, I still hear eloquence. Continuing my look back at June 2015 and specifically the comeback release of MBLAQ’s Mirror, I revisit today some of G.O’s eloquent excerpts from ArirangTV’s Pop In Seoul interview of MBLAQ wherein he talked about the evolution of the group and of course, the music.
