The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 383

It is difficult getting back into the groove and routine of my every day life since returning from Seoul. Keeping up with my countdown posts however seems to be flowing ok. At least one thing is staying consistent. For some reason (probably because I have the heart of a five-year old child), I am really looking forward to hitting Day 400. Milestones. You know how I feel about those.~^^ Even though there will be over 300 days remaining at that point, I still find myself full of excitement as we get closer to discharge. Likewise, every moment I get to sit down and write about this amazing young man makes me happy. Today (as you can see) is a One Shot day. It is also time for a one shot .gif. Lately, I have been longing for Mirror ~ the song, performances, just anything Mirror-related. To quench a little bit of that thirst, I will share a few short G.O .gifs from one of the many performances of MBLAQ’s exquisite and haunting title song.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 379

It is Thursday and my first full day back to reality after a recent trip to Seoul which I find to always be magical even if I am there for no particular reason. Well, truth be told, I actually planned to be there for a couple of reasons. First, I thought Seung Ho would perform through the end of February in his musical Sabita; and second, I kind of wanted to be there to commemorate G.O completing one year of his military service.  I accomplished one so for that my trip was successful! Whenever I leave Seoul, I feel nostalgic. For this 379th day of G.O’s service then, a little Throwback Thursday as I travel way back to May 2010 when MBLAQ hit the stage in Changwon (G.O’s birthplace) for the Miss Korea 2010 Pageant to share some photographic moments captured of our charismatic main vocal.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 374

There is just something about February. It is not even a birthday month. No, not even Christmas. But you would have thought it with the selca updates Mr. Main Vocal has been sharing with us. Back on 11 February, he gave us an amazing reflection of the glow and contentment residing in his heart.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 371

Wow…we are less than a month away from hitting Day 400!! You are going to have go along with me here when I get excited about these upcoming mini milestone moments. Four hundred days, though. Remember back when G.O left for training camp and we all let out this incredible and I suspect quite audible ‘ugggggggh….730 days’? I remember. I remember having to comfort a few by reminding them that it will go by quickly and it has! Ok, I will slow down here for now and try to contain my excitement. It is only Day 371, but is a G.O One Shot .gif day. Seems like a nice day to throw some G.O love out into the blogosphere!^^

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 369

Don’t you just love the G.OMir dynamic? It has to be one of the most playful inter-group relationships in popular music (Korean or otherwise) today. I really have no foundation on which to build that statement as I have no idea what the dynamics are in other groups since I follow none other than MBLAQ; but I think theirs would a standard by which I could measure all others. I am so ferociously biased, aren’t I? Bottom line with MBLAQ though (in my opinion) is that G.O is the special ingredient in the mix that always brings the playful out in others. Pairing G.O with the equally playful Mir as disc jockeys in charge of a radio studio lays the groundwork for good entertainment, albeit wrapped in mischief.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 361

Remember back in July-August 2014 when the Ice Bucket Challenge was going viral to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)? If so, then you will remember that G.O was challenged by comedian Kim Ji Ho to take that challenge and bravely allowed an entire bucket….no, ice cooler of water poured over his adorable self.

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.
