On the eve of his enlistment, G.O spent about a half hour in a chatroom at MBLAQ’s Daum Cafe saying good-bye to his A+ while simultaneously drenching them with his ever-present gratitude. He also said something that gave us all pause. Something probably none of us never in our wildest of dreams would think he would ever say: After two years time, I may not return as an active singer. Unfathomable, right? Well, if after two years he still has some reservations about returning, I would ask him to reflect on the evening of May 29, 2007, and maybe rethink that statement.
But everything means nothing
If I ain’t got you
First, let me be very clear. Whatever it is G.O decides to do post-military will be exactly what he is meant to do. He will have my unwavering support and I will back any decision he makes. But I am not going to deny that I will be very sad and disappointed if his decision is to no longer be active as a singer. For me personally, I cannot imagine a world without his voice.
There are so many amazing moments I could draw G.O’s attention to in order to help persuade him to keep singing for he has given us SO much of his gift, his voice….his soul. But I happen to think his performance of Alicia Keys’ If I Ain’t Got You with Baek Su Kyung and Lee Jung on the May 29, 2007 broadcast of Yoon Do Hyun’s Love Letter is perhaps one of his finest.
I hold firm in my belief that some people were simply born to sing.
This beautiful man right here is one of them.
