What I have learned from watching G.O in variety programming is that I really do not have to understand all that he is saying. I feel the same way when I listen to him sing. I generally can follow along when I have an idea of what is going on. Sure there are times when I want to know exactly what he is saying or singing. Absolutely. Because I think he is bright and humorous, I want to be in on the information or joke as well as be able to fully grasp his many play on words. When it comes to song, I am less stringent in wanting to understand because I feel what he is singing and trying to convey. Today I have a Playful G.O moment wherein I have no idea what is going on and there are no subtitles to help. All I know is that whatever Seung Ho was reading, G.O had a reaction for every thought. Traveling back to a May 2010 broadcast of the MNET Japan Star VJ Show, like a little jumping bean, G.O could not contain his energy.
500th day! 500th day! 500th day! Way back when G.O entered training camp on that chilly February afternoon, did you ever think that 500 days would pass as quickly as they have? I sure didn’t. With just a little over seven months remaining, I am sure the plans for his fan meeting and comeback are well underway and that makes me very very excited. The proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is growing brighter and brighter as we close in on G.O’s discharge day. Without getting too wordy today, I simply want to celebrate this wonderful milestone moment with you, and indeed with him. Congratulations to our sweet military man Byung Hee! By the end of this 1st day of July, he will have completed his 500th day of service!~🎉
It seems with all of his many recent updates, survival reports, and chat sessions over the past five months that G.O has rediscovered his playfulness. I admit that of the many things I so dearly admire about this charming and ever so talented man is his playful mischievous nature. This is something that clearly endears him to all from his family and friends to his adoring G.Oddesses. Yes, G.Oddesses. In his most recent chat session, he returned to referring to his tribe – you know, those of us who call him our bias, as G.Oddesses. That’s kind of romantic to me. But before my heart completely derails here, let me refocus. This post aims at looking at a moment of playful G.O (which of course can easily fall into the romantic category if you are like me and appreciate a playful man with a cheeky sense of humor). Oh my . . . staaaaahp!!~^^ Today, I look back at the very short (but cute) teaser video MBC Every1 released in anticipation of MBLAQ’s variety show, Idol Manager.
Back on 29 May 2007, the fresh-on-the scene R&B trio Tykeys visited the KBS studios to record an episode of the music variety-talk show, Yoon Do Hyun’s Love Letter. You may recall way back on Day 36 I shared Tykeys’ amazing performance of Alicia Keys’ If I Ain’t Got You which the group performed for the audience that evening. Maybe it was before (or perhaps it was after that performance), Do Hyun took some time to chat with Lee Jung and got to know a little bit about his three young protégés. We learned that Su could rap, Hyun Jung could b-boy and G.O had rhythm, could dance, and was completely adorable through it all.
Oh Idol Army, how I have forgotten how playful and entertaining you were! As nonsensical and crazy as the show was, it was nevertheless 16 episodes of getting to know the wonderful and diverse personalities and individual talents of our five fab crew. There are many wonderful moments I could revisit, but for today, I am choosing a moment from the final episode because where there is G.O’s voice, there is Vocal Virtuosity unfolding.
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.
The premise was simple – complete an athletic task and the crowd (which was predominately, if not all, comprised of your fan base) would be rewarded for your success. Seems easy, right? Well, it proved to be somewhat challenging ~ albeit entertaining ~ for our fit and fab main vocal man when he had to become a rhythmic gymnast for the day as part of KBS2’s athletic variety program Let’s Go! Dream Team.
