The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 637

Any fan who has had the opportunity to meet his or her bias in person all walk away with amazing and adventurous stories to tell to be sure. Those moments become committed and embedded to memory, probably for a lifetime. And yes, those moments are often relived over and over. It is natural and understandable. I would have to guess that over the course of his ten plus years of fan appreciation, G.O has left many hearts marked with memories of his sweet and gracious fan service. I recently came across an early fan account and thought it would serve as a wonderful example of G.O’s Fabled Fan Service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 626

Ok, so on 2 November, G.O took to his Instagram account with a mysterious picture update. He posted a picture of the popular Japanese food chain Yoshinoya pulling all of our G.O-radar antennae in the direction of Japan. Could he be in Japan? Possibly. Then on the evening of 3 October, G.O updated once again. This time from what possibly was the men’s room of an establishment say…like a restaurant? With no captions or hashtags, G.O is keeping us guessing. However, where he is currently is not important. What is important is that he continues to spoil us with updates. And seductive ones at that.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 619

Well, well, well . . . contrary to my belief that the moustache never dies, it is apparent from G.O’s early evening update on 27 October that indeed, and every now and then, the moustache meets a momentary demise. <hehe> I have no complaints mind you, because goatee or not, G.O’s handsome is a mainstay.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 614

Well G.Oddesses, you wanted more video updates so it seems your wishes are becoming his command. Indeed. In the early afternoon hours of Sunday, 22 October, G.O gave us a surprise and with it, a good belly laugh.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 604

I think you will agree that G.O’s steady updates over these past eight months have been one of the ways he has shown his appreciation for his fans. He seems to want to stay in contact, to communicate, to reciprocate, and to even let us take this particular journey with him as he completes his military service. He has given us beautiful selcas, celebrated the wonderful upgrades he has made to his recording studio, as well as let us take a peek into how he relaxes and enjoys his downtime. G.O’s connect to his fans from what I have seen has been seamlessly congruent with the kind of celebrity he truly is: warm, friendly, humble and gracious. When I take a look back at G.O’s ‘fan service’ moments well before I knew who he was, nothing has changed from then to now. Sure he has matured; but when it comes to appreciating his fans, that has remained constant. For today’s Fan-Camming Friday offering, I choose a sweet fan appreciation moment from our affable main vocal captured back on 13 February 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 554

I have never taken part in a variety show or sitcom live taping but would gather to say that it is probably a long process with many breaks, delays and takes in the action which probably make conditions ripe for mischief. Such was the case when our main vocal mischief maker had a little fun on the Star King set back on 17 January 2011. We really are quite fortunate that G.O engages with his fans with the level of comfort he does which, if you ask me, often seems more family familiar than fan familiar.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 549

It was a chilly and mild day in Seoul when G.O and his MBLAQ brothers took leave to Tokyo on 5 December 2013 for their Global Sensation Encore show. Sporting a jet black beanie and matching face mask, G.O was all casual, cozy and comfort as he made his way through Gimpo. And while it is true that the studded hi-tops he was wearing made his ensemble pop, my favorite thing he wore that day were his warm (and gorgeous) eye smiles.
