The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 664

I am one of G.O’s fans who has a healthy appreciation for the creative collaboration and subsequent music that was born during his time with Tykeys. Every song, including Su’s solo work, is a candidate for the Vocal Virtuosity list. Every single one. Lately, R&B has taken a firmer foothold in South Korea (much to my delight); however, back in 2007, it did not get the exposure and respect it deserved. Inasmuch as Ty Project No. 1 was an amazing album, in my opinion, it never got proper recognition, promotion and airplay. I listen to it quite a bit so it gets lots of airplay in my house! Often when I am listening to it, I long to hear the present and seasoned vocalist G.O sing the songs of that album. The closest we actually came to that was when G.O appeared with rapper Nassun on Trend-E’s The Muzit show back on 9 October 2010 wherein he sang 22 seconds of Tykeys’ first single, I’m Sorry. And it was twenty-two seconds of absolute vocal virtuosity.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 653

Happy December everyone!! Now that we are in the final month of 2017, the reality of G.O’s return is really settling in, isn’t it?! It is funny how at certain milestones of this countdown I would literally feel so excited. I remember how cranked up I was when G.O completed 100 days and now here we are with only 78 days remaining. I am really finding it hard to contain the excitement. I am sure you are feeling it, too. Speaking of feeling it, I am going back into the temptation vault for today’s Fan-Camming Friday offering choosing the sexy intensity of Y, because . . . why not? I think my wandering into G.O sexy land as of late is due to how independent and self-assured he has been this past year of his service, and how he is settling into that independence. There is something truly sexy about a confident man. And with Y, there was a bounty of confidence that oozed from every performance. I cannot help but revisit it. So then, I offer some focused cam from the M Countdown taping on 3 June 2010 which happened to be the day MBLAQ took home the first place trophy with Y, their first win on MCD.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 651

Some of you may know this about me but in the world outside of my dedicated fangirl duties, I have been for some time and currently am an executive legal secretary in a law firm. So the notion of G.O participating in a variety program that placed him in a position of novice attorney is something I could absolutely appreciate. I have been around brilliant minds and venture to say that had he pursued a career in law, G.O would probably have made a formidable attorney. Attorneys are generally very quick thinkers and are persuasive. I would say G.O has those covered.^^ I must confess however that I have never had the privilege of working along side an attorney that has had his kind of charisma. Furthermore, I have yet to see an attorney light up a courtroom with the kind of hip groove G.O gave viewers during his stint on the MBC legal variety program, 연애 위자료 청구사건 [Dating Alimony Case]. For today then, a playful moment from the courtroom which also doubles as a G.O ~ Juri moment since, well they were both on the show and briefly shared the spotlight together.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 638

We have all felt the surge of excitement when starting something for the first time. A new job. A new relationship. And I suspect for fledgling idols in the making, the same holds true when they debut. I am sure it takes some adjusting. But, approaching everything with gratitude and humor helps. Lately, I have been feeling extremely nostalgic most likely due to Seungho enlisting and having all three members of MBLAQ currently serving out their military duties. Even though G.O has a little over three months remaining, and Mir around nine, the reality is that all three are away. As such, I find myself looking to MBLAQ moments that are filled with levity and laughs. So today a look back at some backstage antics from the MTV M Show. Way, way back that is . . . 8 December 2009.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 633

Today’s Fan-ART-astic moment comes courtesy of one my fave fan art artists, Woorugo. I did not realize Woorugo created a rendition of G.O from his appearance on King of Mask Singer so when I first saw it, I was floored and flooded with emotion. Then again, Woorugo’s art always hits me straight in the heart.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 630

Are any of you hopeless romantics like me yet lose sight of the fact that you are? I am sure there are a few of you out there. You know, had your heartbroken a couple few times but on a good day somehow feel that love is still transcendent? Sometimes when I look back at G.O’s roles in either Pure Love or Couples Clinic, I am reminded that I am indeed a hopeless and quite often, helpless romantic. My G.O One Shot today is a little shot of some G.O romantic from Pure Love.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 624

Since it is Thursday, I thought it would be nice to throw things back to 2009, and to the artful lens of A Lucky Day. The series of photographs she captured back on 1 December 2009 when G.O and Mir appeared on MNET’s Open Studio are each gorgeous captures that could have easily been shot this year, or even last week (you know, before he exiled the goatee). Seriously. So today a little nostalgic beanie chic from our ageless wonder of a main vocal.
