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 514

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 500

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!~🎉

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 494

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 493

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 487

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.
