The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 244

I carry around a notebook (everywhere I go) that has now become quite tattered wherein I have been keeping track of each and every Countdown post ~ yeah, I am pretty old school. When I began this series, I wrote down each day of G.O’s service and have been gradually filling in each line (day) with an idea or thought for a post for that specific day. A long while ago, I made Day 244 a Fan-Camming day and next to it simply wrote: Omiya. I have many fond memories of that lovely day in June. It was also a day filled with an avalanche of feels. When the newly minted trio performed 말하지 말걸 [Don’t Speak], hearing G.O sing it live once again reminded me that the song and his performance of it will forever remain in a class of its own when it comes to feels. Seriously.

When MBLAQ took the stage for the first time as a trio on 6 June 2015 in Omiya, none of us knew what they would sing. I admit, there was a part of me that was hoping to hear something new . . . or at least a teaser of one of the songs from their upcoming comeback release, Mirror. Instead, they opted return to the stage with some classic favorites. I was not expecting 말하지 말걸 [Don’t Speak], however, and it took me completely off guard, as if often does. Still, it was perfect. Here is a lovely G.O-focused cam from the evening show.

I could be wrong (most of the time I think I am), but I would gather to guess that if we asked G.O to list his top ten favorite MBLAQ songs that he absolutely loves to sing, 말하지 말걸 [Don’t Speak] might very well be one of them.

In the clear and undeniable sadness of 말하지 말걸, G.O sings the song with pure and honest emotion . . . every single time.
