The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 615

Wouldn’t you love it if you turned on your television one evening to watch the news and saw G.O and Seung Ho sitting at the news anchor desk? I may for once watch the news if that were the case. Today I felt like a Playful G.O moment and thought his repartee with Seungho at the close of the Trend-E’s APink News broadcast back on 11 March 2011 would be nice since our beloved leader is now away serving his military duty.

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 554

I have never taken part in a variety show or sitcom live taping but would gather to say that it is probably a long process with many breaks, delays and takes in the action which probably make conditions ripe for mischief. Such was the case when our main vocal mischief maker had a little fun on the Star King set back on 17 January 2011. We really are quite fortunate that G.O engages with his fans with the level of comfort he does which, if you ask me, often seems more family familiar than fan familiar.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 539

MBLAQ has visited the Beatles Code studios a few times over the course of their cumulative variety show appearances all of which have been very entertaining. But do you recall the radiance of G.O during the 20 January 2011 episode? Definitely worth a capture in .gif form and a perfect offering for our G.O One Shot for today. *deep sigh*

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 525

There’s always a reason for the ddaeng!

When is MBLAQ and variety not a good match? I know I am biased. In all honesty, I have to confess that I have not watched other groups in variety shows outside of that hilarious Running Man episode with Seung Ho and Joon wherein there were other idol duos guesting along with them. So I have no real point of reference. However I do know one thing: MBLAQ sets the bar pretty high (for me) when it comes to variety entertainment. True, they have guested on many. But if you focus on the core four: Idol Army, Sesame Player, Hello Baby and Idol Manager, I think you will agree that MBLAQ owned Korean variety from 2009 through 2012. Today I am going way back to MBLAQ’s variety infancy to revisit a moment from Idol Army, Episode 10 [The Ski Resort Special] and MBLAQ’s National Music Show where bad boy G.O got to show a little vocal prowess and lots of humor with Rain’s Rainism.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 472

Is it possible to find a Vocal Virtuosity moment during a Korean game show? Absolutely! Back in April 2011, our main vocal man along with leader Seung Ho appeared on 1 vs. 100, a game show that was originally developed by a Dutch-based media company that saw its concept grow worldwide. Along with many other countries, South Korea had its version as well. The basic concept pitted one contestant against a panel consisting of 100 people. If the contestant was able to eliminate the entire 100 by answering questions correctly, he or she would walk away with a large cash prize. Frankly, I am not sure I would be able to answer anything after hearing G.O sing. Even the few bars of 다시 [Again] stun me. However, it makes for a perfect short and sweet Vocal Virtuosity moment for Day 472 and, there is a bonus: he sings with Seung Ho.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 463

It has been so long since I reached into the Sesame Player treasure chest to grab a G.O-centric scene from a random episode. Thursdays are known for their throwback moments so I figured it would be a good day to revisit the hallowed chambers of the Fragrant Interview from Episode 4 to hear G.O’s thoughts on idol etiquette along with a side order of mandatory aegyo and a rather cheeky rolling paper dance. Yes, the fun-filled elements of this show continue to entertainment me even after multiple views.
