The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 441

I have to be honest, I am finding it difficult to concentrate on what I want to write about for this post because that picture up there is mesmerizing me to the point of distraction. For me, there is so much perfect going on in that picture from G.O’s gorgeous profile, elegant and graceful hand, to the black suit jacket and tie (I don’t know what it is about G.O in a suit that just unhinges me, but it does). Framed by the glow of the stage lights, he looked so at ease as he moved through the choreography of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] back on 17 May 2013 during MBLAQ’s Japan Mona Lisa Event. Today, I open The J-Files treasure chest to look back on the short and oh-so-sweet promotion of the release of MBLAQ’s Japanese version of Mona Lisa.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 410

I knew at some point in this countdown series that I would get a chance to completely love on one of my favorite performances of MBLAQ’s Smoky Girl . . . ever. The 26 June 2013 MBC Music Picnic Live performance was probably about as sultry and steamy as that summer day (it reach 86°F/30°C…I checked) itself. Once again a group effort back by a live band, there were still some delicious G.O standout moments nevertheless which give me rise to place the Picnic Live performance of Smoky Girl securely in the Vocal Virtuosity category. It is Day 410 and perhaps a bit sinful to get this steamy for Sunday, but I cannot help myself. And really, the steam comes early and cools off into an energetic and fun upbeat version of this killer song.~.^

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 359

Let me just cut to the chase for this Fan-Camming Friday by saying that anytime a fan cam features an accidental flash of otherwise covered up skin and a wink, along with outstanding vocals and provocative choreography, it easily reaches that gold standard of fan camming. This is my choice for Day 359 ~ one week from the year marker of G.O’s service. A cam from amazing masternim letsgoinho taken at the Human Target Awards on 22 November 2011.
