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 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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 476

It has been over a month since I offered a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect post here on the Countdown. It is not that I am slacking, it is just that I need to build up some resistance to G.O’s penetrating gaze. Back in April 2011, he all of about left a few hearts shipwrecked during MBLAQ’s performance at Kang Hwa Island. The wonderful A Lucky Day and SoulStar were successful in capturing his attention while pointing their cameras at him. Once he locked in, he let all kinds of flirtatious sweetness and charm invade their lenses.

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 468

I adore a demonstrative singer. I love to watch a song invade the very psyche of a vocalist and render him helpless to its melody, lyrics and emotion. The kind of connect with a song that makes it become the absolute control center of every nerve ending in his body. So much so that the song moves through a vocalist at will controlling all senses. This is what I believe a song does to G.O. I have written about it often here because it is something that I find fascinating about him as vocalist. I love that he lets a song in, and lets it have its way with him. We have reached the letter D in my quirky sub-category of this countdown and my choice for the fourth letter of the alphabet is demonstrative.

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 457

As I continue my remembrance of G.O’s impressive portrayal of Prince Ho Dong in 바람의나라 [The Kingdom of the Winds], I turn today’s Fan-Camming Friday cam to one of his more sublime moments in the musical both as a vocalist and actor. When we meet Ho Dong for the first time, his mother Queen Yeon, has already passed away leaving him vulnerable and alone. Yet in a scene that is perhaps a dream or a vision, Ho Dong and Yeon sing together. For me, the two of them singing together was one of the truly poignant moments in the show. And vocally, it was astounding.
