The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 539

MBLAQ has visited the Beatles Code studios a few times over the course of their cumulative variety show appearances all of which have been very entertaining. But do you recall the radiance of G.O during the 20 January 2011 episode? Definitely worth a capture in .gif form and a perfect offering for our G.O One Shot for today. *deep sigh*

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 439

The premise was simple – complete an athletic task and the crowd (which was predominately, if not all, comprised of your fan base) would be rewarded for your success. Seems easy, right? Well, it proved to be somewhat challenging ~ albeit entertaining ~ for our fit and fab main vocal man when he had to become a rhythmic gymnast for the day as part of KBS2’s athletic variety program Let’s Go! Dream Team.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 309

If I limit myself to only posting various performances of G.O singing for the next 422 days, it would be quite nice indeed. However, it would deprive all (including me) from enjoying all aspects of G.O’s charm. To be honest, it would also be lazy of me given my overall desire to share every bit of G.O’s art and talent which is in no way limited to just music. While it is true that music is what generally defines him for it seems to be his first and foremost passion, G.O’s own exploration into other genres of art certainly expands his horizons as an artist perhaps even revealing exciting new ways for him to express himself artistically. If I confine this series to just music, one thing is certain: we would miss out on getting to revisit G.Os playful antics such as those captured at Samsung Galaxy’s S III Big Idol Match on 7 August 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 307

What I love most about G.O’s performance of Play That Song on the 22 November 2013 broadcast of Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook is that he is backed by a live band and back up singers which I feel gives a soulful weight to the earthiness of this incredible R&B ballad. The dynamic of a live band backing G.O is how I envision him performing…..always.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 306

I was thinking about Broken promotions today and how clueless I was at that time to have made the most of being in Seoul when MBLAQ released their 6th mini album. I mean, I could have gone to so many of the promotions if I only knew how to go about it at that time. I was just stepping into the fandom then and the only thing on my mind was G.O. Although MBLAQ had released their Japanese single, Still In Love just prior to Broken, I was still somewhat out of the loop and the thought of trying to get to any promotions did not really cross my mind. Despite my own ineptitude, I don’t look back on that trip to Seoul as a failure. On the contrary. It was my MBLAQ awakening, as it were, and the very moment I met and came face-to-face with my one true bias. On 8 April 2014 I would see G.O perform for the first time in Seopyeonje, however earlier that day he and MBLAQ were at the SBS studios getting their 남자답게 [Be A Man] groove on for The Show, which resulted in a fabulous G.O- focused cam.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 298

Today, I am in the mood for a little bit of savoir faire. It is Day 298 of G.O’s service and a Sunday. Even though every day is special in this countdown, today I bring a touch of elegance. As we inch closer to the 300th day of G.O’s service, it continues to amaze me how quickly the days are passing. Trust me, I miss G.O very much, but father time is obliging us all by moving swiftly and with purpose. A simple and sweet flashback for today then, with an added splash of sophistication. Surely you remember G.O in that sharp black suit and tie at the January 2012 Hello Baby press conference.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 266

On 9 November 2013, G.O made his final appearance on Immortal Song 2 and sang Kim Jung Soo’s touching 내마음 당신 곁으로 [My Heart is With You]. I cannot tell if it is simply a matter of not catching my breath when I watch G.O sing these emotional ballads or if it is simply that I hold my breath for fear of losing grip of my own emotions hearing the heartache in his voice when he sings. I would think that by now, I would have the strength to withstand his attack on my senses but in truth, the more I listen to and watch him, the more defenseless I become.
