The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 647

Lately I feel as if we are moving even more quickly to the discharge finish line. I think it began to feel that way once we were under 100 days. When we look back on when G.O entered training camp, the first day . . . that was officially Day 1 for this countdown. It is almost surreal to me that we are now at Day 647, with 84 days remaining. I know we all miss him, but he has certainly made this journey bearable by keeping us updated throughout, especially since February of this year. So I thought I would slow things down a bit today with a One Shot that honors the absolute beauty and tenderness of G.O’s soulful eyes. Then again, just looking at him could cause a quickening of one’s heart rate thus rendering the entire idea of slow moot. Either way, I just felt like a soulful eyes picture from our soulful main vocal.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 646

Ok, so Dress Up . . . I think we need to have ourselves a short visit with the provocative song and performance for today’s installment of Fan-Camming Friday.  I will concur that the whole of MBLAQ were outrageously sexy during all performances of this song: anytime, anywhere. But, because the hearts in my eyes flash the word G.O, you know I will always declare him the sexiest. At the Seoul Sensation Tour show on 23 November 2013, I found G.O to not only be in perfect vocal form, he was also the epitome of nonchalant sexy. You know, the kind of sexy that sneaks up on you, and is magnanimously seductive. The best part is that he does it without even trying.

Get excited G.Oddesses because it appears that G.O may have or will soon be securing a venue for his upcoming fan meeting on 24 February. At least that is what I believe his 22 November Instagram update was all about.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 644

If my memory serves me correctly, during one of his chat sessions earlier this year, G.O mentioned the song My Dream, commenting on how it is a really good song. I concur. It is one of MBLAQ’s ballads where we got hear very early on the wonderful flavor, layers and versatility in G.O’s voice. In the course of these past 644 days, I have written about this song a couple times. It is because I really like it. So please humor me one more time because I dug up another early performance that serves well for a Wednesday (or any day), especially when I want to open the treasure chest of Vocal Virtuosity moments here on the Countdown. The date: 19 March 2010. The place: Myongji University.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 643

There are literally dozens of words beginning with the letter R that could describe, suit and complement G.O for this installment of The ABC’s of G.O. The first that comes to mind is romantic. I have no reference to confirm he is, but G.O has intimated things in past interviews that would suggest he is a bit of a romantic. Likewise, the way in which he interprets love ballads would also support my belief. I know ‘romantic’ is an easy go to and G.O may even appreciate being described so. But I think there is a word that rings even more true about him. That word is resilient.

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 641

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.
