The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 566

If there is one thing I have discovered about G.O in the short time that I have been his fan it is that we can always count on his quiet and covert way of combating innuendo with fact. Indeed.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 542

Why do I have a feeling that these remaining 189 days are going to be invaded and duly taken over by Selca Magic moments here on the Countdown? Could it be because that at ten days into the month of August, G.O has updated for the 7th time? I say let the invasion continue! So yes, on the evening of 10 August, our beloved main vocal updated once again with a pic of himself with our beautiful leader, Yang Seungho. Kyaaa!!

[TUTORIAL] RECEIVING YOUR TENSO SHIPMENT

So now Ivy has shipped your Seung Ho CDs and shipping agent, Tenso wants to send the treasures to you. I know that navigating both of the Ivy and Tenso sites can be daunting and I probably should have created an Ivy tutorial (maybe next time if G.O releases a Japanese solo CD…hehehehe). I know many international fans have now set up Tenso accounts to help facilitate shipments from Japan. Once your Tenso account is up and running, receiving future Ivy (or other Japanese vendors who do not ship internationally) purchases will be easy. But, there is still a hurdle to jump to get your package from Tenso to you, and I have created a step-by-step tutorial that I hope helps.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 478

Today I reflect on the release of MBLAQ’s wonderful Mirror. It is the anniversary of the release of the group’s 8th mini album, but their first as a trio. As such, it will forever remain special, a memento and turning point marking a new chapter for the handsome young men carrying on the name and tradition of MBLAQ. I don’t know if G.O being away in the Army has made me extra special nostalgic or if it is simply a by-product of this series as I continue to pull moments and memories of G.O’s journey. On 9 June 2015, MBLAQ released Mirror, met the press, and met ever briefly with their loving fans. For today’s Fan-Camming Friday, I will rely on thegopygmalion who captured about two minutes of  G.O-focused cam during the showcase held that warm Tuesday evening in June.

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 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.
