The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 651

Some of you may know this about me but in the world outside of my dedicated fangirl duties, I have been for some time and currently am an executive legal secretary in a law firm. So the notion of G.O participating in a variety program that placed him in a position of novice attorney is something I could absolutely appreciate. I have been around brilliant minds and venture to say that had he pursued a career in law, G.O would probably have made a formidable attorney. Attorneys are generally very quick thinkers and are persuasive. I would say G.O has those covered.^^ I must confess however that I have never had the privilege of working along side an attorney that has had his kind of charisma. Furthermore, I have yet to see an attorney light up a courtroom with the kind of hip groove G.O gave viewers during his stint on the MBC legal variety program, 연애 위자료 청구사건 [Dating Alimony Case]. For today then, a playful moment from the courtroom which also doubles as a G.O ~ Juri moment since, well they were both on the show and briefly shared the spotlight together.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 139

The first of G.O’s duets I encountered where he sang with a female partner (outside of his work with Baek Su Kyung) was 니가 따끔 거려서 [Because You Sting] with Brown Eyed Girls leader, Jea. Even before I heard and purchased the studio version of the song, I watched the two of them duet on the January 23, 2011 episode of SBS KJE’s Chocolate. I revisit this performance often and all of the feels from the first time I saw it return, and I fall in love all over again.

[series] 116 Reasons to Love Byung Hee: #11 ~ It Takes Deux

2015-09-16-12_00_51-hitebb688ed9b84ec9d98ebaa85eab3a12immortal-songs-2-eca780ec98a4eca095ed9dacmblaqjung-hee-ec82aceb9e91ebb3b4eb8ba4eab98aec9d80-e1442431143627

Duet. A performance by two people, especially singers. Two voices locked in perfect harmony, emotion and delivery. But, it is more than that. In a July 2012 interview with ABC News about sharing the stage with another vocalist in a duet, R&B singer Robin Thicke summed it up nicely when he said:

“It’s not about singing with perfect pitch or timing, it’s about feeling. All art is supposed to create feeling and if you sing with passion and you sing from your soul then people will feel it.”

People will feel it. I think he was talking about G.O, right? There is perhaps no truer way to describe the type of vocalist G.O set out to become and thus accomplished: A vocalist who sings with passion from the soul. Indeed. It may seem that all of the passion, emotion and feeling he brings to a song could not possibly be tempered (or matched) when partnered in a duet. I assure you, however, there is something special about the way G.O settles into a duet and lends his passion, emotion and feeling to the dynamic. For me, this is yet another reason to love this very talented man and his incredible artistry as a vocalist.
