The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 364

By early 2012, MBLAQ had released their fourth mini album and were really conquering all of Asia. Indeed, they had won the hearts of Japanese fans. In March of 2012, they released a compilation CD of some of their best Korean songs (to date) for the Japanese market which included a Japanese version of You’re My +. The album was entitled Blaq Memories ~ Best in Korea. With it came an album cover/booklet photo shoot and with that photo shoot, a short film, MBLAQ Blaq Memories ~ Off Shot Movie. For today, Day 364, I would like to share a few golden G.O moments from the Blaq Memories photo shoot and movie.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 350

I suppose it is rather obvious that I have been having deep (and perhaps emotional) longing to travel back in time to the spring of 2014 when everything seemed to be wonderfully in place for both G.O in his independent pursuits on the musical stage, as well as with MBLAQ as they settled into promoting their 6th (and truly brilliant) mini album, Broken. I left Seoul in mid-April of that year after a lengthy stay, and therefore missed the impromptu meet & greet G.O held in the lobby of the Universal Arts Theater on 5 May 2014. I was momentarily disappointed when I learned of that meet & greet, but that dissipated quickly as I reminded myself how fortunate I was in any event to have experienced not only G.O’s amazing fan service, but his incredible performance in 서편제 [Seopyeonje]. It is Day 350 and seems like a great day to celebrate G.O’s Fabled Fan Service as he met with fans back on that sunny day in early May.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 341

It is without question that G.O can create emotional reaction with his vocals. Whether he sings tenderly or with powerful lamentation, you feel something when he releases the notes. I also concede that the visuals captured of him singing are equally powerful. Much like a painter or sculptor must paint or sculpt the story of his art on a canvas or in stone, a singer must become the canvas of the song which moves through him as he sings. Yes, I will repeat that which I have said over and over, I love the way music moves through G.O. He and his music are an amazing blend of sound and visuals, even when he is simply standing on the stage with a single spotlight illuminating his tender presence. For this G.O One Shot day, some captures of music moving through this brilliant young artist as seen (and felt) during the Blaq% Tour.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 325

Every day is a good day to celebrate G.O’s congenial fan service, no matter how he serves it up. True, I have missed experiencing these memories real time, but to be able to relive and watch his gregarious interaction with his fans remains a never-ending pleasure for me no matter how long ago in past or relatively recent these moments have occurred. Reliving them through the many days of this countdown often times makes them feel as if they have happened only yesterday. So many may remember the subject of today’s post, the Yeongdeungpo fan sign during Blaq% promotions in January 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 323

I cannot help but give today’s post two labels: One Shot as well as Playful G.O for it is the perfect combination of both. I always seem to find it somewhat of a delight watching G.O slowly enjoy the delicious sweetness of a gummy worm such as this playful moment caught in .gif form from the 21 July 2013 Cheongju fan sign.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 317

The thing I wish for the most for G.O, after insurmountable happiness, love and bombastic success of course, is that when he attends his first fan sign (either alone or with MBLAQ) post-military service, he regains the kind of excitement and happiness he experienced in fan signs of the past. You know, sort of like the Blaq% Coex fan sign on 29 March 2012, a focused fan-cam of which is the subject of today’s installment of Fan-Camming Friday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 299

We are on the eve of G.O’s 300th day of service. Why am I so excited about this?! It is not like he is being discharged tomorrow! I guess I am just one of those people who loves to celebrate the minor milestones as well as the major ones. I should not get ahead of myself. Ok….breathe. It is Day 299, a G.O One Shot day. I will preface this .gif offering by simply saying that should G.O ever decide to take up rhythmic gymnastics, he would not only do it reasonably well, he would be quite entertaining and indeed the highlight of the competition.
