The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 632

I know I cannot possibly be the only one of G.O’s fans who, in addition to love hearing him sing, finds his speaking voice equally charming and soothing. Lately, I have been taking a different approach to learning Korean. Instead of initially pouring over a textbook, I have decided to log hours of just listening. Remember the Sweet Music Box broadcast on SBS radio G.O did back in 2010 with Jung Go Eun? Those have been my constant listening skills teaching companion this past month. It is helping but since I really love the tone and timbre of G.O’s voice, I get easily distracted from the task at hand. Nevertheless, learning this way is actually a pleasurable experience. But what does this have to do with anything? Well, it is Fan-Camming Friday and I decided upon a cam from the 15 April 2012 Daejeon fan sign where fans were regaled with one of G.O’s cheeky discussions.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 630

Are any of you hopeless romantics like me yet lose sight of the fact that you are? I am sure there are a few of you out there. You know, had your heartbroken a couple few times but on a good day somehow feel that love is still transcendent? Sometimes when I look back at G.O’s roles in either Pure Love or Couples Clinic, I am reminded that I am indeed a hopeless and quite often, helpless romantic. My G.O One Shot today is a little shot of some G.O romantic from Pure Love.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 618

Just a cute and quick cam today by way of some minor theatrics at the Idol Star Athletics event in January 2012. G.O had a co-star in the cam this time, the adorable maknae, Mir. Leave it to these two to provide a touch of the dramatic to their fan service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 611

Inasmuch as I long for a revival of each of G.O’s musicals with him back to reprise his roles, it is Gwanghwamun Sonata that I especially would like to see. Yes, you are right to believe I say that because it was the only one I did not see. Can you blame me for wanting to turn back time or, in the alternative, see him back in the tempestuous role of political activist Kang Hyun Woo? I was duly heartbroken when I recently discovered that the musical is actually being revived for a short run beginning in December. Waaah! I suppose what little is out there in way of fan cam and pictures of G.O’s performance is all we will get . . . for now. Today then, I would like to return to the Gwanghwamun Sonata stage to revisit the vivacious and energetic closing curtain call number for this Fan-Camming Friday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 607

I feel like a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment today and found a nice example in fan-cam form. I thought about waiting until Friday to make it a double categoried day but then figured why wait? I am relaxing my rules these final days of G.O’s service. I should even try to challenge myself to come up with fan-cam moments for each day remaining. I am confident there are enough cams out there to satisfy that challenge and I am sure it would be cool with everyone, right? Hehehe….cams will steadily make appearances regardless of the day and if I chose that route, I would not get my One Shot moments in or finish the alphabet in The ABC’s of G.O sub-series. And you know I must keep those selca moments in rotation. Therefore, I will stay my current course. For today then I give an Eye Connect moment from the taping of the MBC Korean variety program, 매직쇼크 [Magic Shock].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 593

There have been so many instances throughout this countdown series when I mentioned how much I believe G.O is a work of art all unto himself. After viewing so many pictures and yes, having the opportunity to see him up close and in person, I still hold this thought to be true. I have to give much credit to those who have captured him on film, specifically his loving fans. True, the subject matter (G.O, himself) is a great foundation to work from. And yes, timing, perfect light (or not), and camera settings help. Nevertheless, G.O provides the perfect canvas as a starting point and dedicated masternim MemenGO has captured to film many fine moments of our exquisite work of art main vocal  man. Just a single One Shot for today on this 593rd day of his service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 585

I have to be honest when I say that I have not made it through every single variety show, radio broadcast, performance or interview of G.O that has ever been captured. In fact, I am markedly behind (an embarrassingly so). When I finally see something that may be old in the sense that it happened five or more years ago, I am still filled with so much excitement. That kind of excitement that so many of you felt at the time of broadcast or capture. Hopefully, in my late discovery, you are able to relive the excitement once again yourselves. Furthermore, I hope it makes for a nice revisit or a catalyst to revisit something you perhaps have not watched or listened to in a long time. Maybe my post for today will be one of those because if you have not watched the online talk/variety Gurupop Show in a while, you might want to revisit the sweet and silly once again.
