The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 608

In the early days of this countdown series I was giving all kinds of love to G.O’s turn in the drama Couples Clinic: Love & War 2 that he starred in alongside Rainbow’s Go Woori. I admit to being completely smitten with the idea that he was in a drama that had romance as its foundation. As you know, there are so many things that attract me to G.O. For certain, his ability to tap into his romantic side be it in music, drama (and hopefully some day, film) is high on that list. You will all recall that moment in the episode when Joo Won proposes marriage to Go Eun during a romantic dinner which also included Joo Won serenading her prior thereto with a short excerpt of Han Dong Joon’s classic love song, 너를 사랑해 [I Love You].  Undeniably, a Vocal Virtuosity moment.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 607

I feel like a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment today and found a nice example in fan-cam form. I thought about waiting until Friday to make it a double categoried day but then figured why wait? I am relaxing my rules these final days of G.O’s service. I should even try to challenge myself to come up with fan-cam moments for each day remaining. I am confident there are enough cams out there to satisfy that challenge and I am sure it would be cool with everyone, right? Hehehe….cams will steadily make appearances regardless of the day and if I chose that route, I would not get my One Shot moments in or finish the alphabet in The ABC’s of G.O sub-series. And you know I must keep those selca moments in rotation. Therefore, I will stay my current course. For today then I give an Eye Connect moment from the taping of the MBC Korean variety program, 매직쇼크 [Magic Shock].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 594

It is without question the best of both worlds when we get to hear G.O sing while also simultaneously experiencing a little of his playfulness. Because he is so deeply dedicated to his craft, I think he often keeps the two separate. What I mean is, when G.O is singing he is perhaps in a completely different mind and heart space. He simply does not seem like the type to make light of his passion. But every now and then we can catch him mingling the two. I share a really quick playful moment today from the SBS Korean variety/comedy program, People Looking For Laughter.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 583

I wonder if the wow and entertainment factor was the same watching MBLAQ perform with the iconic Uhm Jung Hwa as it was when Justin Timberlake performed with Madonna. I have to believe it was pretty sensational in that Jung Hwa was considered the Korean Madonna with her eclectic presence and daring style. In any event, MBLAQ’s performance of D.I.S.C.O with Jung Hwa at the KBS Gayo Daechukjae back on 30 December 2011 provides enough frisky focused fan cam of G.O to satisfy me on this Fan-Camming Friday. More than enough!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 577

If I told you you were beautiful, would you date me on the regular?

Sometimes a Vocal Virtuosity moment shows up when I least expect it. So as you all know, I joined the MBLAQ party train late in the game. As a result, I missed a lot. A-LOT. Even if G.O had to complete four years of military service I still do not think that would give me enough time to see, hear and experience everything he has done these past ten years he has been living his dream as a singer, composer and actor. There is SO MUCH. I love it of course as it is keeping me busy while he is away. So today I discovered something I had not seen (or heard) before and I knew immediately that I wanted to secure it in the Vocal Virtuosity archives. I know all of you dedicated MBLAQ-philes remember the ETN Entertainment News Interview back on 23 June 2010. You also know then that even if it was brief, G.O covered some Justin Timberlake.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 575

I am going to keep this One Shot very sweet and simple today. An adorable and swoon-worthy capture from MBLAQ’s variety/reality show Hello Baby. You will remember this moment and also how your hearts most assuredly melted just a little bit.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 558

Kinetic comes from the Greek word kinētikos, meaning “of motion,” which in turn traces to the verb kinein, meaning “to move.” If you have been a friend of the blog since G.O commandeered my every thought, you will have likely come across my discussions about how music moves through him as he performs. Even if he would consciously try to prevent it, I think it would be fruitless. When I watch G.O perform, music becomes as visible and tangible as it is auditory moving through his body and exiting in a symphony of sound that is harmonious and full of passion.
