The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 604

I think you will agree that G.O’s steady updates over these past eight months have been one of the ways he has shown his appreciation for his fans. He seems to want to stay in contact, to communicate, to reciprocate, and to even let us take this particular journey with him as he completes his military service. He has given us beautiful selcas, celebrated the wonderful upgrades he has made to his recording studio, as well as let us take a peek into how he relaxes and enjoys his downtime. G.O’s connect to his fans from what I have seen has been seamlessly congruent with the kind of celebrity he truly is: warm, friendly, humble and gracious. When I take a look back at G.O’s ‘fan service’ moments well before I knew who he was, nothing has changed from then to now. Sure he has matured; but when it comes to appreciating his fans, that has remained constant. For today’s Fan-Camming Friday offering, I choose a sweet fan appreciation moment from our affable main vocal captured back on 13 February 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 597

Do not let that mischievous and adorable smile up there fool you for one second into believing this is going to be a sweet cam offering for this Fan-Camming Friday. We all know how G.O’s intrinsic sweetness hits me hard, like sledgehammer-to-the-heart hard. With all of his recent updating, it has been sweetness overload – in a good way! So instead of simply adding to the sweet, I am going to about face and opt for the sexy. The overt, coming at you like a freight train sexy. Picture this, if you will: Daegu, 30 April 2011, G.O dressed in black, and Y. Ready?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 540

I know I have barely scratched the surface of seeing every picture or video captured of G.O performing. And I know that what I have shared here to date is nothing new or different. Nothing you have not seen or watched before. So I really must thank you for indulging me. Hopefully the reminiscing has been enjoyable. And who knows, maybe I have dug up something you may not have seen or at best, have not seen in a good long while! Today I have a little Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment from MBLAQ’s 28 February 2012 Seoul Art Technical College Orientation performance. I have to be honest, it kind of had my heart racing a bit.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 533

One of G.O’s most ardent early fan photographers has been The Black Pearl. She (like many) has proved that there is much to admire about each and every photograph in existence of this expressively handsome man. I think you will find with today’s One Shot offering however that it is agreeably true that G.O fills a camera frame with more than just what the eye can see.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 520

I really thought that I would settle into a fan meet/fan sign fan cam for today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment. That was my plan any way. But whenever I come across a cam of G.O singing, the choice is automatically made for me! This happened today when I came across a cam of G.O performing his second digital single, Play That Song during the Seoul Sensation Tour in November 2013. Usually come Friday, I am cranked up for the weekend. Not today. No, today, I want to ease into Friday with grace and romance. Is there any better way to do that than with G.O’s velvety voice?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 509

Sometimes the best captures in picture form are those wherein the subject is unaware a camera is being pointed at him or her. Even though G.O is pretty keen on locating cameras in a crowd, there are many times when he is not particularly paying attention. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, LOVE when he locks eyes with a camera’s lens (especially those cameras being operated by fans). However, I love the oblivious ones as well because they sometimes capture a thoughtful, quiet or reflective moment. My One Shot for today is one of those captures.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 506

Fridays are fabulous for so many reasons, wouldn’t you agree? For most they mark the end of the work week and the start of the weekend, and that would include our hard-working military man, Byung Hee. I am sure he treasures the reprieve of those two wonderful weekend days so that he can rest, relax and nurture his creativity. Fridays are fun for me because they are fan-camming days here on the Countdown. Granted, I have slipped in many a cam throughout the weeks on days other than a Friday. It happens. Many of my sub-categories crossover into each other. In any event, it is another Fan-Camming Friday and for today a little Mona Lisa from a performance back in October 2012 at Gwangju Songwon University.
