The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 432

Before I get this post rolling let me take a moment to scream: G.O HAS UNDER 300 DAYS REMAINING IN HIS SERVICE!! Yes, this is Day 432 which on the opposite end of a more logical countdown equals 299 days remaining. I know I am the only person counting up instead of down. But somehow counting the days completed feels more like an accomplishment, especially considering there are a total of 730 days in G.O’s service that need to be completed. And ok, 299 days is still quite a ways away, but here we are at Day 432 already. Time is moving quickly. Today, I am feeling particularly fangirly. When my inner fangirl comes out to play, she loves to experience a Windows to Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment and the one I choose for today comes from the SBS Hope Concert back on 4 May 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 428

I often wonder when G.O became MBLAQ’s official main vocal if he realized how much dancing he was going to be required to do. Choreography is part of the Korean pop idol package but he is primarily a romantic balladeer. As we all know, ballads do not really require choreography. I can only hope G.O surprised himself with how well he could . . . move. I pretty much view dancing as a sport, and much of MBLAQ’s choreography was quite athletic, especially in aggressively intense dance tracks like Run. Along with its searing vocals and powerful rap, Run was designed to be visually spectacular. And indeed it was when our gorgeous men in black brought their fierce martial arts themed performance to the K-Collection Fashion Concert stage back on 11 March 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 427

When shuffling through your MBLAQ collection do you ever come to the Y  album and get stuck there for awhile? I do. The reason I get stuck on Y is mostly because of the dreamy ballad Last Luv. Oh the feels that song gives me. But today, I want to focus a Vocal Virtuosity moment towards MBLAQ’s 8 June 2010 performance of What U Want on MNet’s The Pub Only You Concert. I am going to be a bit brazen here because I really wish to focus on the last minute or so of the performance, for obvious reasons.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 426

I guess you can say that I am still lost in the memories of 2014. Finding my way into the MBLAQ fandom had begun in 2014 and although the road ahead would prove to be difficult, I was prepared for the journey. Indeed I was prepared to begin experiencing the many facets of G.O’s charming personality along with his incredible talent. Today, just a quick Playful G.O moment from the 30 March 2014 Broken fan sign in Myeongdong.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 420

After seeing G.O’s stellar performances in both Seopyeonje and 바람의나라 [The Kingdom of the Winds], I knew his talent stretched far beyond music. When news hit that he had been cast in a supporting role in director, Kim Hyung Hyeop’s 아빠는 딸 [Daddy You, Daughter Me], I was elated. And yes, it may only be a supporting role; but the way I see it, supporting roles can very well pave the way to the leading ones in the future. I am very excited for our dashing  young actor!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 417

The road to Seopyeonje was so long ago and yet it seems like only yesterday. Since spring was the season of Seopyeonje (in 2014), I have been feeling very, very nostalgic. I thought revisiting a couple of the early rehearsal videos would be nice for a Sunday. G.O’s voice on a spring Sunday in April? Absolutely.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 414

With the array of selcas G.O has generously gifted us throughout the month of February alone, and then the couple he surprised us with last month, it is difficult to come up with pictures that could top those. But One Shots were created to span the frontier of the many glorious captures of G.O. And for purposes of this specific category, that means pictures that do not fall within the selca spectrum. Inasmuch as a selca pretty much trumps all other pictures, I am nevertheless going to continue digging into the G.O vault for pics, .gifs and fan art to honor this category throughout the remaining days of his service. Remember after G.O opened his Instagram account, he was steadily posting (much to our delight)? He recently deleted a good many of those early pictures but thankfully gave us plenty of time to save them for our own personal archives. I want to share one of those early pics today.
