The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 431

There was a reason MBLAQ titled their fifth mini album Sexy Beat. When you look at all of the visuals that exploded from print to video, to live stage performances throughout promotion and beyond, everything about that album (and era) oozed sexy. The men were maturing and settling into their masculinity and with Sexy Beat, it showed. For the G.O One Shot today, I take a shot from the Sexy Beat era offered in .gif form.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 428

I often wonder when G.O became MBLAQ’s official main vocal if he realized how much dancing he was going to be required to do. Choreography is part of the Korean pop idol package but he is primarily a romantic balladeer. As we all know, ballads do not really require choreography. I can only hope G.O surprised himself with how well he could . . . move. I pretty much view dancing as a sport, and much of MBLAQ’s choreography was quite athletic, especially in aggressively intense dance tracks like Run. Along with its searing vocals and powerful rap, Run was designed to be visually spectacular. And indeed it was when our gorgeous men in black brought their fierce martial arts themed performance to the K-Collection Fashion Concert stage back on 11 March 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 376

I think it is true that many of G.O’s most playful moments probably happen during fan meetings and fan signs. I know that G.O has shown us playful moments during variety programs, and even in the closing moments on the concert stage where often times a sort of playful chaos and mayhem break out. But the fan signs . . . well, they breed a special kind of playful.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 373

There was a time when G.O walked on US soil and yes, I missed it. Had I been dialed in to MBLAQ and all of their activities, I would have probably found my way to Los Angeles in April 2012 to experience a little slice of G.O’s genuine fan appreciation when a mini fan sign of sorts took place and he met with fans for a little one-on-one autograph session.

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 360

I will agree that often when taking pictures with people there is a need to lean or squeeze in to be captured successfully in the frame. I may be stretching things a bit here, so humor me. One of my fave little nuances of G.O is his lean in and/or head tilt when he is taking a picture with someone. I do not believe it is always to say, stay in the frame of the picture, nor he does not do it all the time. But, he does it often enough for me to take notice.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 359

Let me just cut to the chase for this Fan-Camming Friday by saying that anytime a fan cam features an accidental flash of otherwise covered up skin and a wink, along with outstanding vocals and provocative choreography, it easily reaches that gold standard of fan camming. This is my choice for Day 359 ~ one week from the year marker of G.O’s service. A cam from amazing masternim letsgoinho taken at the Human Target Awards on 22 November 2011.
