It is Day 599 of G.O’s military service. I cannot believe that come tomorrow, he will be completing 600 of his 730 days. It is astounding how quickly the time has gone by. Maybe for some of you it feels like it has dragged but don’t worry, when you get to be my age it will speed up nicely for you, and then you will long for those days when it felt like it dragged! This is true. So we hit another milestone tomorrow and I am already celebrating. I cannot help it ~ I am getting very excited for his return. But, I still have 132 more days to fill here on the countdown, so I will try to keep my emotions in check. I am making it difficult for myself with today’s choice for our G.O One Shot. It is a .gif day and I decided on a moment from his small screen MV work with Ailee back in 2012 because quite frankly, G.O will show you . . . his eye gaze game is strong.
There have been so many instances throughout this countdown series when I mentioned how much I believe G.O is a work of art all unto himself. After viewing so many pictures and yes, having the opportunity to see him up close and in person, I still hold this thought to be true. I have to give much credit to those who have captured him on film, specifically his loving fans. True, the subject matter (G.O, himself) is a great foundation to work from. And yes, timing, perfect light (or not), and camera settings help. Nevertheless, G.O provides the perfect canvas as a starting point and dedicated masternim MemenGO has captured to film many fine moments of our exquisite work of art main vocal man. Just a single One Shot for today on this 593rd day of his service.
Over the years, G.O has had many masternim fans who have diligently captured his beauty and talent from debut to the present. I am not exactly sure when Blackbird joined the others in making G.O the focus of her artful captures, but I am very pleased she chose him because through her lens G.O is nothing short of a work of art. I came across an early capture that I have never seen before and share it as my G.O One Shot for this 581st day of his service.
When I made the decision to do this countdown series I remember telling myself that I would mostly post pictures with occasional videos. My goal was to just memorialize each day because in the back of my head, I knew 730 days meant 730 posts and to be quite honest, I wasn’t sure I was up to the task. I figured posting a picture a day would not be overly demanding and I would be able to honor G.O each day as he completed his service. It seems I am incapable of restraining myself when it comes to G.O. So whenever I come to a G.O One Shot day, I am reminded of my original plan and just smile. Best laid plans, right? My last One Shot picture was from The Black Pearl. I share another from that series today.
One of G.O’s most ardent early fan photographers has been The Black Pearl. She (like many) has proved that there is much to admire about each and every photograph in existence of this expressively handsome man. I think you will find with today’s One Shot offering however that it is agreeably true that G.O fills a camera frame with more than just what the eye can see.
For some reason today I started to think about rookie cyber crime unit detective Lee Tae Kyun. It has been awhile since I watched 유령 [Ghost] and I may be ready for a re-watch. In the meantime, a little Lee Tae Kyun love for today’s G.O One Shot. I have been breaking my one shot rules quite a bit lately so today I continue the tradition with some LTK .gif spam. He’s too cute!
I am not sure if you are aware, but Seoypyeonje is returning to the Korean musical theater stage next month. Directed again by Lee Gina, it returns with some familiar faces. Both Cha Ji Yeon and Lee Ja Ram each will return as Song Hwa, as will Seo Bum Seok in the role of Yoo Bong. However, there will be three new faces in the role of Dong Ho (Park Yeong Soo, Kim Jae Beom and Kang Pil Seok). As much as I love this wonderful musical and trust the direction of Lee Gina, I admit that I am still feeling a bit sad over the fact that is being revived without G.O. Then again, we all have to wonder if G.O would have even been cast again in the role (I think so); and if so, would he have accepted the offer to return? In any event, the news of the reprisal has made me drift back to G.O’s time on the Seopyeonje stage. So a little Dong Ho One Shot love on this 521st day of his service.
