The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 388

Is :56 seconds of G.O singing an excerpt from a ballad sufficient enough to place it here on the Countdown in the Vocal Virtuosity category? You bet it is. Back in May 2010, just prior to the release of MBLAQ’s second mini album Y, MBLAQ’s handsome hyung line made a stop at the MNET radio studios. In under a minute, the combination of G.O’s voice accompanied by Seung Ho’s piano continually proves to me that these two artists were perhaps always destined to work together. Indeed, this post can hold equal weight in the Heavenly Collaborations category.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 381

Inasmuch as MBLAQ’s 12 February 2012 Inkigayo performance of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] was in fact a good-bye stage and the song serious and intense, it still did not deter G.O from some playful stage antics in any event. It is a well-established fact that I find G.O’s quiet and simmering sex appeal outrageously attractive. What makes him even more disarming is the fact that his brand of sexy is twofold. Yes, it’s true. Whether he is caught up in the passionate emotion of a song or in the throes of complete mischief, the man is the very definition of attractive and sexy. For today, I am choosing a Playful G.O moment that confirms that even at his mischievous and playful best, G.O is simply irresistible.

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 349

It is pretty clear if you peruse the past 348 posts contained in this countdown series thus far that you could easily deem the majority of them as being nostalgic. With the exception of any that pertain to G.O’s actual enlistment and profile and/or selca picture updates that came thereafter, the series is kind of a retrospective on G.O’s career. Lately, I have been feeling particularly nostalgic for 2014 and I guess it is with good reason. The year 2014 was particularly meaningful for me as it was during that year I fell squarely (and safely) into one true bias land having discovered the irrepressible talent and charisma of G.O. It was my good fortune that not only was G.O prepping to hit the musical stage, MBLAQ was about to make a comeback with the release of their 6th mini album, Broken.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 334

Why don’t we just start the week off with some G.O cute overload? Happy Monday to you on this 334th Day of G.O’s service! I feel like keeping it light and fun so I decided to travel back to MBLAQ’s Japan debut days of May 2011 and, in particular, the day G.O, Seung Ho and Thunder visited the Made in BS Japan MBLAQ Special. Remember the ‘Synchronizing Questions’ segment?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 333

I admit that I have not always watched variety show appearances at the time of airing (of course, many I have missed having come to the fandom late) so I don’t experience the excitement perhaps real time. Watching at a later date can work out better actually though because often at initial airing, there are no subtitles. So although it is a thrill to watch our biases engage and interact on a variety program, if we don’t understand Korean, we are not going to have the full  experience. And a full experience is exactly what you would want from Episode 96 of JTBC’s variety talk show program Witch Hunt, when G.O and Mir dropped by to share their views on relationships.
