The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 702

qo6ywb

It seems that I am not quite ready to walk away from the summer of 2015 and G.O in a sexy black fedora quite just yet. A black fedora is always a sophisticated style choice. It is classic and elegant. And when pulled down low across one eye it adds a sense of mystery and danger. A fedora is wearable film noir and I have to say that it added a powerful and mature feel to G.O’s stage presence during 전쟁이야 [This Is War] at the Daejeong Super Concert on 30 August 2015. It’s Fan-Camming Friday and Day 702 . . . let’s do this!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 695

I think it is a good day to go wild, don’t you? 2012 was one very bountiful year. So much MBLAQ goodness including the sub-unit collaboration of G.O and Mir. Usually prone to high jinks and mischief, our wild pair traded in their playful images with some in-you-face swag during the Blaq% Asia Tour that year with their provocative single, Wild and it is my choice for this Fan-Camming Friday day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 620

If any of you came to the MBLAQ fandom after the summer of 2012, then I am sure you share the same regret for missing out on the Blaq% Asia Tour. In a way it is probably a good thing that I was not yet cognizant because I most likely would have gone head-to-head with my HR department to allow me the vacation time adequate enough to have gone to at least one of the shows on the tour to see G.O live on stage. In any event, my regret subsides when I come across the many pictures and cams from that tour which of course include the many airport sightings as the men darted their way throughout Asia. To add to my ever growing collection of G.O’s Airport Style, I share a little bit of the masked man as he and his MBLAQ cohorts made their way to and from Bangkok in early July 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 562

Happy Friday and welcome to September! Time continues to move quickly as we inch towards G.O’s military discharge. It is Day 562 and the excitement continues to build for his return. Today, I opt for a short and sweet cam moment from G.O and Mir’s Koica Dream days in Peru. Just a little love for this Fan-Camming Friday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 495

I know it may be hard to believe, but I have actually faced some days during this countdown series where I was unsure of what I would write about. Today was one of those days. But I have discovered a way to navigate that problem when it arises and that is to simply to pause, look and listen to G.O. Magically something always comes to mind. What came to mind today were thoughts of a fan meeting. I have never experienced a fan meeting of any kind for any artist or group, ever. It then occurred to me that my first fan meeting will be G.O’s first solo fan meeting next year. It furthered occurred to me that the first time I ever saw G.O perform was his first musical on the Korean musical stage. Therefore, to honor this idea of firsts, I am using MBLAQ’s first official fan meeting with their A+ back on 9 January 2011 and dropping it into a Vocal Virtuosity moment: G.O’s golden voice and You’re My +.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 477

Often times, when I am in the kind of nostalgic mood that I have been in as of late and I want to feel the warm caress of G.O’s voice in an early MBLAQ song, I find myself listening to Celebrate. It probably ranks as one of my favorite group ballads. Every symphonious note that G.O releases into the atmosphere is like a drop of resonant honey that coats the heart. There are many songs worth showcasing in a Vocal Virtuosity segment and I still have plenty of days left to explore a good many of them. But for this sweet second Thursday of June, lets head back to the central western coast of South Korea to Sohae College and . . . Celebrate.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 471

One of the five million things I absolutely adore about G.O is how he is the perfect balance of fiercely masculine and achingly tender. On either side of those spectrums are numerous examples of each. Today I opt for a fiercely masculine moment which will always be best displayed during a performance of 저쟁이야 [This Is War]. Even at the fiercest moments of RunStay or even Oh Yeah, nothing matches the furious vocals, choreography or penetratingly intense gazes that This Is War brings. Couple that with black on black on black costumery and the performance becomes all that more powerful. There really is nothing that can remotely temper G.O’s intensity during any This Is War performance. It definitely was present at the Busan Catholic University show back in May 2012. In fact, that kind of intensity only amplified the charisma and handsomeness that oozed from the stage that day. It is Fan-Camming Friday and a blast of G.O intensity is the perfect way to usher in the weekend.
