The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 366

And with a long and satisfying sigh . . . I can officially say that G.O has completed one full year of his two year military obligation and that he has exactly 365 days remaining. It has been an absolute honor celebrating this incredible young man every day since he entered training camp back on 18 February 2016. In its own little way, each day has almost been like a prayer of gratitude for me. Each day a small way to be thankful that G.O has shared his artistry, his kindness, his charm and his own humble graciousness so very generously with all of us. For today’s very meaningful celebration, I just want to share a little bit of G.O’s angelic presence from MNet’s July 2011 Wide Open Studio on this celebratory Fan-Camming Friday day.

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 358

Over the past few days I have been giving lots and lots of love to G.O’s past involvement with the neo-soul R&B trio, Tykeys. It is part of his past that I feel was an incredible stepping stone to get him where he is today and not just musically. I think G.O’s time spent with Baek Soo Kyung and Kim Hyun Jung gave him experience and direction that supported and indeed fueled his creativity. He learned about synergy and collaboration which I believe every artist needs, and which he has become keenly adept at. My G.O One Shot for today is a little homage to G.O’s Tykeys stage presence, in .gif form.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 356

My recent time travel to 2007 keeps coaxing me back for more, and with good reason. I have denied myself the pleasure of sharing Tykeys’ 연상연하 [Old and Young] for almost a year now. Yes…a year!! The second single from their amazing Ty Project No. 1 is a stand out neo-soul treasure all about (what some may deem) the forbidden love between a younger man and older woman. And as many of you know, there was a MV released along with the song…starring our dreamy main vocal as the leading ‘younger’ man.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 349

It is pretty clear if you peruse the past 348 posts contained in this countdown series thus far that you could easily deem the majority of them as being nostalgic. With the exception of any that pertain to G.O’s actual enlistment and profile and/or selca picture updates that came thereafter, the series is kind of a retrospective on G.O’s career. Lately, I have been feeling particularly nostalgic for 2014 and I guess it is with good reason. The year 2014 was particularly meaningful for me as it was during that year I fell squarely (and safely) into one true bias land having discovered the irrepressible talent and charisma of G.O. It was my good fortune that not only was G.O prepping to hit the musical stage, MBLAQ was about to make a comeback with the release of their 6th mini album, Broken.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 348

How did I manage to come this far into this countdown series without talking about MBLAQ’s Cry MV?! Shame on me!!^^ This was after all the very first MBLAQ MV I ever viewed. As such, it holds some really special meaning. Not only that, from a purely visual and artistic standpoint, it is nothing short of electrifying. Day 348 of this countdown would be otherwise unremarkable indeed. But taking the time here today to revisit the visual splendor of G.O in the Cry MV pushes it to the forefront of perhaps being one of my favorites as we begin this new year inching towards discharge day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 340

Other than getting the opportunity to talk about G.O every day, another plus about this series for me is going back and watching performances or MVs that I may have not watched in a good long while (or sometimes never even seen before ~ it happens). I have to admit that often times, it feels like I am experiencing the excitement of seeing these moments for the first time all over again. I woke up this morning and I really felt like hearing, seeing and experiencing some Tykeys. True, every day I rev my playlist up, there is a good chance that a Tykeys song will find its way into the shuffle – it’s a given for me. A little visual provocation will always boost the experience and such is the case when watching the MV for Tykeys’ classic R&B groove, I’m SorryContinue reading
