The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 515

In the early evening hours of Friday, 14 July, G.O served up his first Survival Report of July and quite possibly came close to breaking Instagram and the internet in the wake of it. With his steady updates since completing one year of service back in February of this year, we have seen him in various locales, all quite benign with the most notable locale being his beautiful recording studio. Never though has he opened the doors to the boudoir and invited us in. On Friday, he did just that and my rapid and irregular heart rate has yet to return to normal.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 501

The point of G.O offering up survival reports is to ensure his adoring and patiently waiting fans that is he is healthy, happy and doing well. It may also serve to remind us that he is thinking of us as much as we are thinking of him. Whatever it is, he is making it more and more difficult to survive the reports; however, that in no way means he should stop! On the contrary, we need more like he shared back on 25 June for his No. 2 Survival Report of that month.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 488

‘Can one desire too much of a good thing?’
~Shakespeare, As You Like It

I recalled those words spoken by Rosalind in William Shakespeare’s play, As You Like It the moment my notifications panel lit up on the morning of Monday, 12 June (on my side of the planet) and I saw that G.O had shared yet another survival report update. I thought to myself, will he continue this relentless assault on our hearts, creating a desire for more and more as we count down the days of his return? Indeed he is spoiling us and making conditions ripe for the desiring. Nevertheless, I don’t think any of us believe that there could ever be too many G.O survival reports and/or updates of any kind  . . . ever.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 459

While it is true that the majority of us are missing G.O as he completes his military service, you have to agree that he has been diligent and consistent in providing us updates (or as I like to call them, survival reports) throughout the course of his time away thus far. I mean, he has been REAL generous. Since February of this year, he seems to be on track with giving us monthly updates. He hit us hard for May (and it is only the middle of the month) with his Instagram post on the 13th. I think the squees, sighs and screams were heard worldwide when he hit the send button. Seriously.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 447

On 17 March 2011, MBLAQ hit MCountdown for a good-bye stage performance of 다시 [Again] and at some point during that, day Mr. Gorgeous Main Vocal took the time to snap and tweet a selca for his adoring fans.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 441

I have to be honest, I am finding it difficult to concentrate on what I want to write about for this post because that picture up there is mesmerizing me to the point of distraction. For me, there is so much perfect going on in that picture from G.O’s gorgeous profile, elegant and graceful hand, to the black suit jacket and tie (I don’t know what it is about G.O in a suit that just unhinges me, but it does). Framed by the glow of the stage lights, he looked so at ease as he moved through the choreography of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] back on 17 May 2013 during MBLAQ’s Japan Mona Lisa Event. Today, I open The J-Files treasure chest to look back on the short and oh-so-sweet promotion of the release of MBLAQ’s Japanese version of Mona Lisa.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 435

Since it is Thursday, I suppose a little bit of a throwback moment is in order. I will do it with the help of my G.O’s Selca Magic category and dig deep into the treasure chest of those ever-winning selcas, traveling back to June 2011 when G.O and the men of MBLAQ were in Singapore for the K-Pop Heal The World Concert.
