I think you might be hard-pressed to find another who can make a face mask as sexy of a fashion accessory as G.O can. He proves it time and time again that a small piece of fabric that operates as either something to secure his health or serves to allow him to travel somewhat incognito, is never obstructive and hardly reduces the amount of handsome that oozes from the very being of his charismatic presence. I shuffled through some airport pictures and came across MBLAQ’s return to Seoul from México back in August 2013, and found one of my favorites of his casual styles: the man capris, fashionable t-shirt, conductor cap and yes, ok, even that (why must he cover his beautiful lips) face mask.
In his recent chat session back on 11 June at MBLAQ’s Daum Cafe, G.O mentioned, “It’s normally the people who have a good sense of fashion that wear black clothes; But I’m wearing them only because I’m bad at choosing clothes.” When I read that my first thought was, he’s not serious, is he?! I found it quite amusing that he said he was not good at choosing clothes to wear when I have been recently gushing over his airport style (and style in general) and the fact that he has incredible fashion sense, always looks very well put together and basically is good at choosing clothes! This would include my choice for today when MBLAQ was en route to Chile for a Music Bank performance back in November 2012.
Oh Idol Army, how I have forgotten how playful and entertaining you were! As nonsensical and crazy as the show was, it was nevertheless 16 episodes of getting to know the wonderful and diverse personalities and individual talents of our five fab crew. There are many wonderful moments I could revisit, but for today, I am choosing a moment from the final episode because where there is G.O’s voice, there is Vocal Virtuosity unfolding.
Because G.O is so incredibly sweet, gentle and kind, we sometimes can forget how wicked sexy he can be. Today’s G.O One Shot is a reminder that G.O’s kind of sexy is more powerful and lethal than he himself perhaps even realizes. But, I don’t mind having the chore of reminding him today. It is Day 486 or as I am going to call it: Super Sizzling Saturday.
I cannot believe I have let 16 months pass without taking a moment here on the Countdown to admire G.O’s airport style. Well, I did touch on it a little bit back on Days 155 and 202, but overall have not done so with regularity. With the plethora of pictures and cams that exist of any one of the many arrivals and departures from airports worldwide that are available, you would think I would have included more of those moments in the Countdown by now! Well, there are 257 more days left to G.O’s service so now is as good of a time as any to to make it a reoccurring sub-category in the mix. When is G.O not stylish? He always looks fabulous whether he is dressed casually or more formal. Clothes just love this man. His airport style has been consistently comfortable with a touch of something (an accessory, a hat, sunglasses, or shoes) that adds a little extra dazzle, glamour and allure. Such was the case back on 13 March 2013 when the men of MBLAQ were en route to Thailand.
The sophistication of the Broken era will never lose its luster for me. The suits. The maturity. The elegance. The poise. The evolution of the music. All of it. Today, a G.O One Shot in .gif form. A moment taken from one of the late autumn 2014 stages.
G.O is unquestionably the magnet that pulls the compass of my heart in his direction, in every way. True, I am smitten. And indeed every picture I see is his best, every performance better than the last and every fan sign fancam a golden treasure of his devout fan service. I have visited the 31 July 2011 Mokdong fan sign here on the Countdown awhile ago, but that was by way of photographs. Today is Fan-Camming Friday, and I want to return to Mokdong and that particular fan sign because I am simply in the mood for a soft G.O, in both his style and in the tranquil and sometimes coy gazes within which he looked out into the room at his loving A+.
