Wow, I had not realized that for a good four months both G.O and Joon held a steady MC gig on MNET’s M Countdown back in 2010. I recall them doing it, but did not realize it was that long. I have to admit that my M Countdown watching days started with Broken so, yeah, I was completely unaware that in addition to performing on the show, they also occasionally MC-ed it as well. On 25 March, G.O was on MC duty and masternim A Lucky Day happened to be in attendance and captured a series of lovely photographs of the magnificent and gregarious MC.
For my One Shot today, a little bit of the art and poetry of Mona Lisa. It is no matter that Mona Lisa is now over six years old. I never tire of listening to it, in either of its Korean or Japanese incarnations. It is one of those early MBLAQ songs that has held up year after year and is as equally provocative visually as it is vocally. I also never tire of watching performance after performance of the song. Usually with One Shots I alternate between picture and .gif. Today, I felt like both.
I have to be honest. I am finding it increasingly difficult to calm my excitement and focus now that we are less than 100 days from discharge, especially after G.O’s recent chat with his G.Oddesses on 7 November. So many thoughts and emotions are crowding my brain, and my heart. Sometimes it is overwhelming. I find myself wondering about G.O’s future. And as much as I have been enjoying these past 639 days reminiscing, I am very ready for the next movement in the concerto of G.O’s life and career. Celebrating him each day has been the highlight of my last (almost) two years and will only be bested by the opportunity to be able to experience all of the new and exciting music, events and activities yet to come. But as we still have some time, I will pull the proverbial reins in on myself, and steer this countdown carriage back to 11 October 2013 for some focused Smoky Girl cam of the ever debonair and disarmingly handsome G.O during MBLAQ’s performance at the IEF Seongnam International Game Festival Opening Ceremony.
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.
This is it G.Oddess . . . the last 100 days!!! Can you feel the energy and excitement growing? Are you as anxious as I am to see what G.O has in store for us when he returns? Throughout this countdown series I have been trying to not let my excitement get too out of hand as we chipped away at the days of his service. But I think now that we are left with only 100 days . . . yeah, I think we can all start to get a little crazy. In one hundred days, G.O will be back!
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.
Amazingly, I have let over 600 days pass without giving G.O.O.D Luv proper love and attention here on the Countdown. Shame on me because it is one of those songs that have a way of just making you smile and feel good. With its infectious beat and catchy choreography I would think that it most probably was (and is) a fan favorite and iconic in its own right as an MBLAQ pop song. I always love watching the joy in the performance the guys brought to the stage, even when effectuated in one very extravagant suit jacket. More nostalgia today for Fan-Camming Friday with a focused G.O.O.D Luv cam from the Family Science Festival performance on 24 April 2010.
