The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 467

The sophistication of the Broken era will never lose its luster for me. The suits. The maturity. The elegance. The poise. The evolution of the music. All of it. Today, a G.O One Shot in .gif form. A moment taken from one of the late autumn 2014 stages.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 445

I bet you are probably wondering . . . ‘will she make it through the entire alphabet before G.O is discharged?‘ Yeah, I wonder about that too, especially since he has a little over nine months remaining in his service and the way time is moving, I may lose track and not see my way through all 26 letters. But I like a challenge, as trite and ridiculous as this one may seem. Building vocabulary is great exercise for the mind, and seeking out ways to describe G.O is just another way of keeping fit!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 436

I am not quite ready to leave MBLAQ’s participation in the K-Pop Heal The World show in Singapore back in June 2011. Moving from the lovely selca yesterday and into Fan-Camming Friday,  I found a short clip of a G.O-focused cam captured at the very end of MBLAQ’s performance of 다시 [Again]. Short like in 20 seconds short. That is short. But it is Friday and everyone should be eager to start the weekend, right? I will even try to keep my words at a minimum. <~~~ Is that even possible?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 432

Before I get this post rolling let me take a moment to scream: G.O HAS UNDER 300 DAYS REMAINING IN HIS SERVICE!! Yes, this is Day 432 which on the opposite end of a more logical countdown equals 299 days remaining. I know I am the only person counting up instead of down. But somehow counting the days completed feels more like an accomplishment, especially considering there are a total of 730 days in G.O’s service that need to be completed. And ok, 299 days is still quite a ways away, but here we are at Day 432 already. Time is moving quickly. Today, I am feeling particularly fangirly. When my inner fangirl comes out to play, she loves to experience a Windows to Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment and the one I choose for today comes from the SBS Hope Concert back on 4 May 2012.

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 401

Quietly and gently today, I want to revisit the tender Still in Love. I remember being so excited about the release of this single back in February 2014 because I had just joined the fandom and I was getting to experience the release of new music from MBLAQ for the first time. True, it was not as exciting as the upcoming Broken promotions that followed, but for me it was very special in any event and I guess it kind of prepared me for the bigger stage and excitement of the group’s comeback. Plus, you have to remember, my attention by then was securely focused on G.O as I was preparing to travel to Seoul to see him for the very first time. When I listen to Still In Love, I am transported back to those early days of first discovery. Sigh….so special. Anyway, before I get too overly sentimental here (too late!), let’s travel to Osaka and a focused fan cam of G.O as the group performed this sweet ballad back on 13 March 2014. It is Fan-Camming Friday after all!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 397

 

My infatuation with G.O’s eyes continue, even if he dare only show us one. For some reason, showing only one eye during some of the Mona Lisa promotions and performances in the summer of 2011 proved to be ever mysterious and absolutely alluring, particularly at the MTV Cyworld Music Festival Dream 2011. Lucky were those who pointed their cams and cameras on him and were able to capture the attention of that one very lone soft and mesmerizing eye. I would like to ease into this Monday, this 397th day of G.O’s service, with the soft gaze of his eyes, the windows . . . or in this case, window to his soul.
