The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 723

It has been a long time since I have shared any kind of fan cam of a press-oriented nature. So why not today, this second-to-last Fan-Camming Friday of the countdown? From the 2012 Asia Model Festival Awards, G.O and his MBLAQ brothers spent some time at the photo wall being captured in all of their handsome glory. With G.O’s russet locks pushed up off of his forehead he was a shimmering vision in black that evening and fortunately for us, there is some cam that captured that vision.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 716

When isn’t Y a sexy feast to behold? Most always never. It has always been one of MBLAQ’s most provocative songs with an equally intense performance when brought to the stage. So when MBLAQ decided to include it in their performance repertoire at the 4 June 2013 Sexy Beat showcase, I think it pretty much left fans unhinged. Maybe it was all of the black leather and sheer components of their stage wear. Oh my . . . sexy beat certainly lived up to its name. Let’s not hesitate a moment longer and get to the Friday Fan-Camming offering for the day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 712

Many fans who have been with MBLAQ since debut certainly remember the mini documentary Making The Artist that began airing on GOMTV back on 26 May 2010. As much as I love MBLAQ in full on variety, I also enjoy a more behind the scenes type program that follows their day-to-day activities and in the case of Making The Artist, follow them as they prepared for a comeback with the release of their second mini album Y. By May of 2010, G.O had already MC-ed the M Countdown show for a couple of months and had a strong presence on the airwaves with his many radio program appearances. In my opinion, he was settling in nicely as a host. G.O has a wonderful presence on camera and is equally steady and charming on the radio. With his intelligence, wit and magnetism, I have often felt he would be an amazing host of his own variety or reality show, as well as a formidable disc jockey on the airwaves. Therefore, it is no surprise how comfortable he was talking about the business at hand on the set that day, as well as being the interviewee along with leader Seung Ho during a segment of Making The Artist.

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 638

We have all felt the surge of excitement when starting something for the first time. A new job. A new relationship. And I suspect for fledgling idols in the making, the same holds true when they debut. I am sure it takes some adjusting. But, approaching everything with gratitude and humor helps. Lately, I have been feeling extremely nostalgic most likely due to Seungho enlisting and having all three members of MBLAQ currently serving out their military duties. Even though G.O has a little over three months remaining, and Mir around nine, the reality is that all three are away. As such, I find myself looking to MBLAQ moments that are filled with levity and laughs. So today a look back at some backstage antics from the MTV M Show. Way, way back that is . . . 8 December 2009.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 522

I wanted today to be another Vocal Virtuosity day after hearing One recently. Even though it is a MBLAQ group effort, Mr. Main Vocal proves predominant throughout the song. As you know, when that happens, I like to bring it to the forefront here on the countdown because as much as I adore all of MBLAQ’s music, when my lovely bias takes the vocal helm in a song, it rapidly moves up my fave list. I forgot how feel good One is and how crystalline and powerful G.O’s vocals are throughout the song. Even though I have been diligently searching, I could not find an actual live version or performance. If any of you are aware, please post a link to in the comments section. I did recall however the 13 September 2011 KBS broadcast of The Lord of Magic show wherein our fab five performed a wonderful and remarkably sweet LED light show using One as a backdrop music to the performance.
