The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 660

When isn’t a G.O-focused Mona Lisa fan cam a good thing? It is always a good thing. Whether on a Friday or any day, watching (and hearing) G.O during Mona Lisa is a tantalizing delight. I think it has been well over 100 days since I last honored a Mona Lisa performance, so time seems about right to have another. For this Fan-camming Friday, I am choosing a focused cam from the Cheong-gu Prime Concert on 8 August 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 659

Somewhere and some time ago, it came to pass that a tradition would be born. That tradition was arming G.O with a water gun during the closing song or songs of a MBLAQ live concert show. It would almost seem if something were awry if G.O were to circumvent the course of a stage and stage runway at the close of a show without some kind of water-laced weaponry affectionally dousing his minions. I suppose if I were to research this phenomenon thoroughly I would be able to pinpoint the exact show where he received the first in his arsenal of many water guns. Instead, I am just going to honor his adorable playfulness in picture form for today’s G.O One Shot. And yes, multiple shots.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 648

There is simply no denying that No Love is one of MBLAQ’s quintessential pop songs. It bursts with energy, melody and yes, sweetness. Of course, this is a group effort, but when you break it down and look at it, the bulk of the vocals were actually handled by G.O, Seungho and Mir. When the angelic voice of G.O holds some vocal weight in a song, that automatically pushes it into Vocal Virtuosity territory. Inasmuch as the studio version is pure perfection, G.O’s remarkable vocals in Nagoya during MBLAQ’s Zepp Sensation Tour in August 2013, showcased the absolute clarity, strength, control of his voice as well as the undeniable command he brings to the stage.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 646

Ok, so Dress Up . . . I think we need to have ourselves a short visit with the provocative song and performance for today’s installment of Fan-Camming Friday.  I will concur that the whole of MBLAQ were outrageously sexy during all performances of this song: anytime, anywhere. But, because the hearts in my eyes flash the word G.O, you know I will always declare him the sexiest. At the Seoul Sensation Tour show on 23 November 2013, I found G.O to not only be in perfect vocal form, he was also the epitome of nonchalant sexy. You know, the kind of sexy that sneaks up on you, and is magnanimously seductive. The best part is that he does it without even trying.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 644

If my memory serves me correctly, during one of his chat sessions earlier this year, G.O mentioned the song My Dream, commenting on how it is a really good song. I concur. It is one of MBLAQ’s ballads where we got hear very early on the wonderful flavor, layers and versatility in G.O’s voice. In the course of these past 644 days, I have written about this song a couple times. It is because I really like it. So please humor me one more time because I dug up another early performance that serves well for a Wednesday (or any day), especially when I want to open the treasure chest of Vocal Virtuosity moments here on the Countdown. The date: 19 March 2010. The place: Myongji University.

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 639

I have to be honest. I am finding it increasingly difficult to calm my excitement and focus now that we are less than 100 days from discharge, especially after G.O’s recent chat with his G.Oddesses on 7 November. So many thoughts and emotions are crowding my brain, and my heart. Sometimes it is overwhelming. I find myself wondering about G.O’s future. And as much as I have been enjoying these past 639 days reminiscing, I am very ready for the next movement in the concerto of G.O’s life and career. Celebrating him each day has been the highlight of my last (almost) two years and will only be bested by the opportunity to be able to experience all of the new and exciting music, events and activities yet to come. But as we still have some time, I will pull the proverbial reins in on myself, and steer this countdown carriage back to 11 October 2013 for some focused Smoky Girl  cam of the ever debonair and disarmingly handsome G.O during MBLAQ’s performance at the IEF Seongnam International Game Festival Opening Ceremony.
