The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 540

I know I have barely scratched the surface of seeing every picture or video captured of G.O performing. And I know that what I have shared here to date is nothing new or different. Nothing you have not seen or watched before. So I really must thank you for indulging me. Hopefully the reminiscing has been enjoyable. And who knows, maybe I have dug up something you may not have seen or at best, have not seen in a good long while! Today I have a little Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment from MBLAQ’s 28 February 2012 Seoul Art Technical College Orientation performance. I have to be honest, it kind of had my heart racing a bit.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 476

It has been over a month since I offered a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect post here on the Countdown. It is not that I am slacking, it is just that I need to build up some resistance to G.O’s penetrating gaze. Back in April 2011, he all of about left a few hearts shipwrecked during MBLAQ’s performance at Kang Hwa Island. The wonderful A Lucky Day and SoulStar were successful in capturing his attention while pointing their cameras at him. Once he locked in, he let all kinds of flirtatious sweetness and charm invade their lenses.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 468

I adore a demonstrative singer. I love to watch a song invade the very psyche of a vocalist and render him helpless to its melody, lyrics and emotion. The kind of connect with a song that makes it become the absolute control center of every nerve ending in his body. So much so that the song moves through a vocalist at will controlling all senses. This is what I believe a song does to G.O. I have written about it often here because it is something that I find fascinating about him as vocalist. I love that he lets a song in, and lets it have its way with him. We have reached the letter D in my quirky sub-category of this countdown and my choice for the fourth letter of the alphabet is demonstrative.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 457

As I continue my remembrance of G.O’s impressive portrayal of Prince Ho Dong in 바람의나라 [The Kingdom of the Winds], I turn today’s Fan-Camming Friday cam to one of his more sublime moments in the musical both as a vocalist and actor. When we meet Ho Dong for the first time, his mother Queen Yeon, has already passed away leaving him vulnerable and alone. Yet in a scene that is perhaps a dream or a vision, Ho Dong and Yeon sing together. For me, the two of them singing together was one of the truly poignant moments in the show. And vocally, it was astounding.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 453

It was very fortunate that there was so much buzz around the revival of 바람의나라 [The Kingdom of the Winds] which actually kind of amazes me since it had its first run in 2006, and remained relevant and popular eight years later. It is a fascinating story that weds history with mysticism and fantasy during turbulent and violent times when unstable kingdoms were breeding grounds for war, betrayal and tragedy. I have mentioned often (but I am SO proud of G.O for being a part of this magical musical), that the 2014 production was particularly special because of G.O being cast as the vulnerable Prince Hodong. Today, in keeping with my celebration of Kingdom, a short musical stage moment captured during early press previews.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 448

It’s Wednesday and sometimes the middle of the week requires a pick-me-up to push us over the hump and into the back end of the week so that the stretch towards the weekend seems less distant. Come Wednesday, I am aching for the final days of the work week to arrive quickly so I can enjoy the freedom and relaxation of the weekend. Also, as each week completes, we get closer to discharge. Believe it or not, the finish line is closer than you think! To give this Wednesday a bit of a push, I thought we could collectively join G.O in a nine second dance break.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 443

Can there be anything more romantic than the tender gaze of G.O’s eyes during a gentle ballad? Remember when he joined HaHa and Taw on The Show and laced his velvet vocals around their 내 품이 좋다던 사람 [The Person By My Side?] I wrote about it back on Day 177, which seems like ages ago now that we are at the mid-400 days mark. I remember how angelic G.O looked and sounded during that performance. I came across a short fan cam taken during the recording of that segment back on 20 March 2012 and share it as today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment.
