The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 594

It is without question the best of both worlds when we get to hear G.O sing while also simultaneously experiencing a little of his playfulness. Because he is so deeply dedicated to his craft, I think he often keeps the two separate. What I mean is, when G.O is singing he is perhaps in a completely different mind and heart space. He simply does not seem like the type to make light of his passion. But every now and then we can catch him mingling the two. I share a really quick playful moment today from the SBS Korean variety/comedy program, People Looking For Laughter.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 593

There have been so many instances throughout this countdown series when I mentioned how much I believe G.O is a work of art all unto himself. After viewing so many pictures and yes, having the opportunity to see him up close and in person, I still hold this thought to be true. I have to give much credit to those who have captured him on film, specifically his loving fans. True, the subject matter (G.O, himself) is a great foundation to work from. And yes, timing, perfect light (or not), and camera settings help. Nevertheless, G.O provides the perfect canvas as a starting point and dedicated masternim MemenGO has captured to film many fine moments of our exquisite work of art main vocal  man. Just a single One Shot for today on this 593rd day of his service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 590

Has anyone else been taking long strolls along Blaq Style street as of late? Blaq Style has been wooing me recently and I have been finding myself listening to the album exclusively as well as foraging the internet for pictures and cams. Apart from the eclectic blend of music on the album itself, the visuals that accompanied it in both MVs and public performances were simultaneously powerful and sensual. G.O settling into a softer look proved to be even more lethal when coupled with the fierce on stage performances of Oh Yeah and Stay. So in the interest of not giving you too much sensory overload, I offer two short G.O-focused cam clips from MBLAQ’s performance at the Wonju Oak Valley event on 5 February 2011.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 583

I wonder if the wow and entertainment factor was the same watching MBLAQ perform with the iconic Uhm Jung Hwa as it was when Justin Timberlake performed with Madonna. I have to believe it was pretty sensational in that Jung Hwa was considered the Korean Madonna with her eclectic presence and daring style. In any event, MBLAQ’s performance of D.I.S.C.O with Jung Hwa at the KBS Gayo Daechukjae back on 30 December 2011 provides enough frisky focused fan cam of G.O to satisfy me on this Fan-Camming Friday. More than enough!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 579

I admit there may cause for debate when talking about the ‘visual‘ in a group. Honestly, no matter who is deemed the visual, our own personal biases will most likely hold that honor for us individually regardless of who owns the title officially. It is something that I have not always been familiar with as I do not think western groups traditionally have a member or members who are labeled as “the visual.” It wasn’t until I started my Korean entertainment education that I came across this idiosyncratic facet of the Korean group dynamic. I tend to get stubborn about the visual title holder in MBLAQ because for me, I would give that title exclusively to G.O. <hehe…no surprise> In addition to his striking good looks, G.O’s talent and voice would invariably make anyone sit up and take notice while he was on stage or screen. He may not have been officially labeled MBLAQ’s visual, but he nevertheless was, and consistently is, noticeable.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 576

We have now reached the middle of the month and somehow time seems to be picking up speed. Soon, G.O will hit the 600 day mark. 600 days out of 730. Can you believe we have come this far so fast?! Some days I find it difficult to contain my excitement because we are getting so close. Have you begun celebration preparations yet? Too soon? Hahaha, I can’t help it. I am ready for his return! However, in the event you feel time has been dragging or are yourselves feeling sluggish, how about an Oh Yeah cam for this Fan-Camming Friday? You remember The Dream Concert back in May 2012 and those black shimmering outfits with see-through sleeves, right?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 571

We all know how fiery and intense G.O is both on and off the stage. His intensity is one of my very favorite facets of his mercurial and mysterious nature. It must be a Scorpio thing. For as long as I can remember and perhaps comprehend the science of astrology, I have always been fascinated by Scorpios. Maybe it is because the sign itself sits directly opposite of my own on the Western astrological chart. It does not necessarily mean we are opposite in nature but in fact share many of the same attributes. But, I am getting offtrack here with the purpose of this post! For as intense as G.O may be, he seems to be equally gentle and pliant. And when that softness shines, it is best experienced in his warm smile. In the sub-series, The ABC’s of G.O, we are at the 13th letter of the alphabet. I choose to mix it up a little for today by using the romanization of the Korean word 미소 ~~>’miso’ or, smile.
