The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 368

No disrespect to designer Kwak Hyun Joo, but I am of the opinion that the real fashion explosion happening back in March 2013 at Seoul Fashion Week during his collection show was in fact occurring off the runway and not on. G.O casual yet sophisticated in black and white, sensual lips framed in a soft goatee was a vision of pure fashion perfection and quite frankly should have been walking the runway rather than observing it.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 364

By early 2012, MBLAQ had released their fourth mini album and were really conquering all of Asia. Indeed, they had won the hearts of Japanese fans. In March of 2012, they released a compilation CD of some of their best Korean songs (to date) for the Japanese market which included a Japanese version of You’re My +. The album was entitled Blaq Memories ~ Best in Korea. With it came an album cover/booklet photo shoot and with that photo shoot, a short film, MBLAQ Blaq Memories ~ Off Shot Movie. For today, Day 364, I would like to share a few golden G.O moments from the Blaq Memories photo shoot and movie.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 309

If I limit myself to only posting various performances of G.O singing for the next 422 days, it would be quite nice indeed. However, it would deprive all (including me) from enjoying all aspects of G.O’s charm. To be honest, it would also be lazy of me given my overall desire to share every bit of G.O’s art and talent which is in no way limited to just music. While it is true that music is what generally defines him for it seems to be his first and foremost passion, G.O’s own exploration into other genres of art certainly expands his horizons as an artist perhaps even revealing exciting new ways for him to express himself artistically. If I confine this series to just music, one thing is certain: we would miss out on getting to revisit G.Os playful antics such as those captured at Samsung Galaxy’s S III Big Idol Match on 7 August 2012.

[event] One Mirror A Month – December Winner (Round Two)

So . . . I gave France three days to respond and it seems there were no takers for a free copy of Mirror. As I said, I had no idea how this event would play out, but I am not defeated quite yet. My rule book reads, if the first one view/one visitor forfeits his/her win, I must move to the next one view/one visitor country on the list for 8 December, and again make the offer. Let’s see if I will be successful this time!

[event] One Mirror A Month – December Winner

The stats are in and so it begins! It occurred to me that there is really no way I can confirm the identity of the one view/one visitor. If a friend of the blog sees that their country is listed as the first one view/one visitor, they can easily contact me and say they are the one and I really cannot refute it, right? So a bit of a change in the event rules as it comes down to basically awarding the country and not necessarily the visitor. This little update and bend in the rules creates a more interesting contest now!!^^ If your country is listed as the first one view/one visitor, it will come down to who contacts me first. If you are the first to tweet me at @micheledemarco ~~>”(name of country) loves #MBLAQ #OneMirrorAMonth” then you become the proud owner of one copy of MBLAQ’s Mirror. The only caveat is that if you respond, you have to be from and physically living in the one view/one visitor winning country. Let’s begin!

[event] One Mirror A Month

For some time now I have been wondering what I should do with my surplus copies of MBLAQ’s 8th mini album Mirror. I have already given quite a few away, and I even donated a bunch (in G.O’s name) to a non-profit organization here in the US that teaches music to underprivileged children. Still, I have quite a few copies left. So an idea came to me today. I am not sure how well it work, but it is the holidays so I thought I would propose an event and see how it goes.

Love, Laughter and Seung Ho In The Rain ~ The Musical Sabita

Having now successfully conquered some pretty serious and lingering jet lag following my return from Seoul late last month, I am finally coherent enough to set my thoughts down about the musical 사랑은비를타고 [Love Is In The Rain], or as it is affectionately known in the Korean musical theater world, 사비타 [Sabita]. Since I attended the musical with the express intention of seeing MBLAQ’s leader Yang Seung Ho in his role as Dong Hyun, the focus primarily will be on his performance, but admit that I will include thoughts overall on his cast mates and the show overall. Additionally, I am including some fan account material to expose confirm Seung Ho’s incredibly sweet fan service. Yes, MBLAQ’s quietly charismatic leader is more endearing than he leads us to believe, a hundred fold more talented than he is given credit for and yes, more handsome in person than any picture can live up to. For this post, I have taken off my G.O-tinted bias glasses to give Seung Ho my undivided attention and in return, he pleasantly surprised me.
