The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 725

As excited as I am that there are only six days remaining in G.O’s service, I am simultaneously sentimental. I have always been a sentimental type and it seems as though the support and attention I have given to G.O these past four plus years have rendered me even more sentimental. I guess it is because now I have a history with MBLAQ and, specifically G.O. I have moments that I can look back on wherein I have seen him, interacted with him and have experienced not only his immeasurable talent, but his kindness and graciousness. For my last One Shot, I am going to succumb to my sentimentality by sharing one of the pictures I took of G.O during his last performance before enlisting.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 681

I admit to having bouts of sentimentality, and there have been plenty throughout this countdown. I find myself today reminiscing over G.O’s last stage before he entered the army. It seems as if the culmination of his days of service and the momentum towards completion are filling me with a mixture of both nostalgia and eager anticipation. His last stage was a solo stage and his first stage following discharge may also turn out be a solo stage. See how this renders me simultaneously sentimental and excited?! I will let my nostalgia then carry us back on this Fan-Camming Friday to that last stage in February 2016 [I.Callist Idol Vocal Concert] with G.O’s moving performance of 사랑은 차가운 유혹 [Love Is A Cold Temptation].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 503

I could take the easiest possible avenue here for the seventh letter of the alphabet by simply saying G is for G.O! It is perfectly logical and fitting for today’s post. There are so many possibilities: graceful, gracious, generous, gifted, gallant, and even the obvious, gorgeous. But I can go one simpler. Indeed, I want to choose a word that all others could claim is perhaps the foundation by which each found their way into the category of describing G.O. One that most likely defines him from core to surface. It is probably my favorite word to describe him and heaven knows you will easily find it in every single post I have written about him here on this blog. That word is gentle.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 363

If you have been following this series (or even my blog in general), you know how very sentimental I am and how I enjoy commemorating special dates, milestones, and memorable moments. Today happens to be one of those days as one year ago today, G.O stepped upon the stage and sang for us one more time before entering military training camp four short days thereafter. It is silly, but for some reason remembering that snowy Valentine’s Day is making me tremendously emotional as I sit down to write. I write through my tears often so it is ok that they fall today. I chose to write a Vocal Virtuosity moment for today as the time is actually quite perfect to revisit G.O’s performance of his incredibly smooth and sweet Play That Song from the I.Callist Vocal Idol Show on 14 February 2016.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 313

사랑은 차가운 유혹
그래도 피할 순 없어
Love is a cold temptation, still I cannot avoid it.

Most of the time when I listen to G.O sing, I honestly do not feel the need to fully understand the lyrics and the reason being is that his interpretations, his feelings, emotions, passion, heart and soul generally tell the story without a need for translation. However, I admit that understanding what he is singing about adds a greater and more powerful dimension to the song. One of the songs G.O chose to sing for his last stage before departing for military camp was 사랑은 차가운 유혹 [Love Is A Cold Temptation]. It was the fourth song of his five song set last February at the I.Callist Idol Vocal Concert. It was tender. It was passionate. It was beautiful.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 292

While I have been reserving the Retro Room for songs of days long gone by, indeed longer than three years, I felt the strong urge to make sure G.O’s beautiful performance of John Legend’s All of Me from the I.Callist Idol Vocal Concert back in February is filed securely here in the Retro Room among the others. Legend’s song was released in 2013, not very retro I know, but I bend my rules every now and then when I am compelled to share moments of G.O’s moving and poignant interpretations of songs that surely mean so much to him.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 232

Our charming main vocal would like to call your attention to the fact that he now has UNDER 500 DAYS LEFT OF HIS SERVICE!! Yes, it is true. As G.O completes his 232nd day of service today, he officially has 499 remaining. Frankly, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it is growing brighter and brighter each day. For today, I just want to celebrate G.O as seen through my own camera. These are not new and this is not the full collection of what I have been fortunate to capture. Nor are they perfect as I seem to have lots of trouble keeping my camera steady when I point it at him.  So it goes . . .
