The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 653

Happy December everyone!! Now that we are in the final month of 2017, the reality of G.O’s return is really settling in, isn’t it?! It is funny how at certain milestones of this countdown I would literally feel so excited. I remember how cranked up I was when G.O completed 100 days and now here we are with only 78 days remaining. I am really finding it hard to contain the excitement. I am sure you are feeling it, too. Speaking of feeling it, I am going back into the temptation vault for today’s Fan-Camming Friday offering choosing the sexy intensity of Y, because . . . why not? I think my wandering into G.O sexy land as of late is due to how independent and self-assured he has been this past year of his service, and how he is settling into that independence. There is something truly sexy about a confident man. And with Y, there was a bounty of confidence that oozed from every performance. I cannot help but revisit it. So then, I offer some focused cam from the M Countdown taping on 3 June 2010 which happened to be the day MBLAQ took home the first place trophy with Y, their first win on MCD.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 642

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 304

What is his process? Does the melody come and then the lyrics? Are there sometimes only lyrics and no melody? Or only a melody which he gently sets aside to contemplate or place before collaborators for words? Perhaps it is a maelstrom of words and melody that collide simultaneously within his heart and soul wherein all of the parts piece together like an intrique puzzle and a song is born. Whatever his process, G.O has proven himself to be an adept lyricist and composer. Our first glimpse of his writing prowess came with Tykeys 한번만 [Only Once], but with MBLAQ, we had our first taste with 돌아올 수 없는 [Can’t Come Back], his powerful dance track composition which provided the backdrop to Mir’s lyrics. Traveling back today to Blaq Style ~ 3D Edition, to honor Composer G.O.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 301

On 15 July 2010, M Countdown broadcast its 200th episode. They did what any good show would do to celebrate the milestone and make fans happy: they enlisted their team of MCD Guyz, G.O being one of them, and planned a 200 free hugs event. I have to admit that the fangirl in me would have possibly sold her soul to be one of the fortunate fans that day to receive a hug from G.O. Other than possibly scoring a selca with your bias, a hug has to probably be one of the most coveted gifts a bias can bestow upon a fan. Even though this was a planned and controlled event, I have to add it to the list of many moments of G.O’s fabled fan service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 289

I have always believed that G.O was (and still is) a consummate student of music. Ever learning and perfecting his own art, I have to guess that his music collection is more vast and wide than the oceans between us. Indeed he is extremely well-versed in music and has covered the songs of many music legends, east and west. As many of you know, there were often those times when during a variety show or in-studio radio show appearance, he was asked to sing and I have to believe there were times he was prepared to do so. But there were times when he most likely was not and was asked to sing off-the-cuff as it were. Live. At that moment. During the broadcast. I think the SBS Ten Ten Club broadcast of 15 July 2010 was one of those off-the-cuff moments when he regaled the audience with a few lines from DBSK’s  주문 [Mirotic].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 222

I love everything about Mirror. It is a unique and tragically beautiful song that our amazing trio sunk every bit of emotion into when they introduced it to us in June 2015. And although I have not known him for very long, nor could I be so bold to assume I know his heart, what I think I can surmise adequately about G.O is that he will never shy away from revealing emotion. In my opinion, the veil of sadness that enveloped him throughout the Mirror promotions was not cathartic nor healing. It was, however, intense and emotional. On 11 June 2015, before the men of MBLAQ brought Mirror to the M Countdown stage, MNet captured G.O in a gorgeous focused fancam.
