The Fangirl Adventure Log Retires

Hello everyone! It has been a month now since my beloved G.O was discharged from his mandatory military service.  Some of you may be wondering why I have abruptly stopped writing about him since his discharge. I can assure you that it has nothing to do with a break in my love or support. It is just time to quietly retire this blog. It is clear that The Fangirl Adventure Log started out on one path but quickly became a vehicle to celebrate the artistry of G.O. From the moment I chose to include G.O on my very short list of K-Shots of Hot, the entire direction and indeed focus of the blog became an homage to him, and stayed that course through 17 February 2018. And while it is true that I could continue to write about his journey as a BJ [Broadcast Jockey] on the live streaming site AfreecaTV, I am choosing not to do so. I encourage all to check out his broadcasts which he began on the evening following his fan meeting on 24 February. He has gone live every night since at 10:00PM KST. As with any live broadcast, things can be unpredictable, but G.O seems to have found a nice groove as a BJ, is doing well and continues to expand his audience. I support him in this endeavor (and all he endeavors to do) and always look forward to each new broadcast.

You can also connect with G.O on his YouTube Channel and at his Naver Cafe.

As for The Fangirl Adventure Log, all the content presently contained here will remain [with the exception of any broken YouTube links – I have no control over those which are not mine]. So if you want to revisit the days we counted down towards G.O’s military discharge, you are are always welcome, as each of those 730 days (and more) will be here to greet you.

Thank you so much for supporting me in my own blogging journey. I may return to blog about something new in the future. For now however, I am going to quietly enjoy supporting that talented man above as admin of The G.O International Fan Club.

Many heartfelt thanks and love to you all.

The End Is Only The Beginning ~ Welcome Back, G.O!

And with a huge sigh and jubilant smile I can finally say . . . G.O has successfully completed his military service!!  This end however signifies a greater beginning. In less than one week’s time we will get what many of us have longed for since he enlisted (and perhaps even before that): a new song!! Yes, back on 10 February, when he chatted with his fans in MBLAQ’s Daum Cafe, G.O said a new digital single will be released on 23 February (a duet). He also said he has a schedule set for the four days following that release, one of which we already know about: his Fan Meeting on 24 February. The days that follow are mysteries that will be revealed at that fan meeting. But he did mention that more new music will be coming in March-April. The excitement is almost too much to contain! Are you ready? Because I know that I am. I have been ready since 18 February 2016!!

Welcome Back, G.O!!!

We have missed you and are ready to feel the magic of your music, your talent and indeed, your artistic heart, once again.~😍

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 730

Happy New Year!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!! And, Happy Last Day of G.O’s Military Service!!! We made it. We really truly made it! True, G.O did make it bearable by staying in touch throughout the two long years he has been away, but I remember how forlorn we all were that first day ~ it seems like an eternity ago yet here we are at the 730th day. It is a holiday so I am wondering if G.O is actually off of work on his last day of service. The Lunar New Year is a high holiday across Asia and this year of the Dog celebration actually began yesterday in South Korea. So, has G.O officially completed his service and is already discharged, or will he actually be discharged tomorrow? It’s a mystery! But in keeping with my schedule here on the Countdown, it is a Fan-Camming Friday and I plan to end with another dose of nostalgia. This time coming from a moment close to my own heart, Seopyeonje. I am probably most G.O nostalgic when it comes to Seopyeonje because that is where I saw and met him for the first time. I usher out Fan-Camming Fridays and, thus, this series altogether with a revisit to the 3 March 2014 Seopyeonje showcase.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 723

It has been a long time since I have shared any kind of fan cam of a press-oriented nature. So why not today, this second-to-last Fan-Camming Friday of the countdown? From the 2012 Asia Model Festival Awards, G.O and his MBLAQ brothers spent some time at the photo wall being captured in all of their handsome glory. With G.O’s russet locks pushed up off of his forehead he was a shimmering vision in black that evening and fortunately for us, there is some cam that captured that vision.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 721

Can it be? Have we finally reached the final ten days of G.O’s service?! Indeed we have and because I am in a really good mood as a result, I thought we could go back to a little bit of the fun and games had during Episode 15 of Oh! My School/100 points out of 100. Not only did we get some adorable G.O, we got some adorable G.O trying to avoid elimination from the ‘guess my word’ game while singing Wheesung. And that is nothing short of a double bonus.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 720

I would often tell friends who were going through some difficult times that without the bitter in life, we would not be able to recognize the sweet. That hard times are usually not permanent and that without them, we probably would never appreciate the good ones. Life is an amazing rollercoaster. And, all that is associated with it challenges us, shapes us, and strengthens us. Every facet is vital and zoetic. Ah…you knew I had to be going somewhere with this philosophical rambling. The very basic meaning of the word zoetic is probably most associated with science as it means livingvital and pertaining to life. But when I think of G.O, I think it has a deeper more esoteric meaning. We have reached the final letter in The ABC’s of G.O series at long last where is for Zoetic.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 719

After today (and I cannot believe I am actually saying this), there will be one final G.O One Shot on this countdown. But before I get too sentimental, I want to share some stage swagger from the Inkigayo special stage performance back on 4 September 2011. I will to do it in .gif form as it is One Shot .gif day and a Monday. Sometimes Mondays need a push to get rolling and I think this might do the trick.^^
