The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 363

If you have been following this series (or even my blog in general), you know how very sentimental I am and how I enjoy commemorating special dates, milestones, and memorable moments. Today happens to be one of those days as one year ago today, G.O stepped upon the stage and sang for us one more time before entering military training camp four short days thereafter. It is silly, but for some reason remembering that snowy Valentine’s Day is making me tremendously emotional as I sit down to write. I write through my tears often so it is ok that they fall today. I chose to write a Vocal Virtuosity moment for today as the time is actually quite perfect to revisit G.O’s performance of his incredibly smooth and sweet Play That Song from the I.Callist Vocal Idol Show on 14 February 2016.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 335

I truly am of the firm belief that there is a time, season and reason for all things that happen in our lives. I still remember so clearly Lee Joon’s words during one of the Curtain Call shows back in November 2014 where he said that even brushing against someone’s shoulder is one’s karma. It may sound all granola breath and tree huggy, but I think that he (like me) believes in the power and force of the universe and how our lives play into and are affected by it, including the people we meet and come in contact with. This is perhaps why I completely missed falling heart first into the G.O vortex before he released either of his digital singles, and most notably, Play That Song. I wasn’t ready. But I came close, for it was by early December 2013 that I was on the road to G.O-ville. All things for a reason.^^ For our G.O One Shot today, I steal a moment from the mini Play That Song MV, in .gif form.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 307

What I love most about G.O’s performance of Play That Song on the 22 November 2013 broadcast of Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook is that he is backed by a live band and back up singers which I feel gives a soulful weight to the earthiness of this incredible R&B ballad. The dynamic of a live band backing G.O is how I envision him performing…..always.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 95

It is once again time to for me to share another G.O One Shot and a GIF is in rotation for today. For some reason, I am feeling the lure and pull of romantic G.O at the moment so a softer picture seems about right for Day 95.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 7

Once you stand in the warm ray of his light,
it becomes a sanctuary you never wish to leave.
However, if you must ~
you long for the moment when you can return and stand in it once again.

I captured this blurred shot prior to the last song of G.O’s set at the I.Callist Idol Vocalist Concert, Play That Song. It is impossible to consider a last song as truly meaning the last song. As we sat lost in the sweet embrace of his voice, we were unaware of what tomorrow would bring. Yet, sometimes the eyes reveal a sadness the heart is unable to speak.

There are 724 more days until he returns.



He’s A Free and Gentle Flower…

On January 16, 2015, G.O had his first stage of the new year and it was a delicate reminder of how truly gifted he is as a vocalist. The Gimhae Arts & Sports Center held its Big Happy Concert on the evening of the 16th, and invited G.O to perform. Fans of this amazing man were indeed hungry to see him even though the effects of the two Curtain Call shows in late November had not yet worn off. You see, once he throws out the line to reel you in and captures your heart and soul, you simply have to surrender to the ever-present urge to want to see him over and over. Trust me, this is a fact. This first stage was special not only for us, but even more so for him.
