The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 527

I don’t know what was in the air back on 24 August 2013 at MBLAQ’s Love Beat fan sign in Sinchon, but whatever it was certainly made G.O extra special chatty, playful and in some instances, impatient. It is another Fan-Camming Friday here on the countdown and I am opting for an eleven minute edit of G.O’s mischief in Sinchon. Unfortunately, there are no subtitles, but the video is entertaining nonetheless for whenever G.O playfully interacts with fans, fun is sure to be had.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 513

As I sit down to write my 513th post of this series I am even surprised by my own perseverance. Then I consider the subject and realize there will never be enough time to say all that I would want to say and share about this amazing bias of mine. Oh I am sure the number of eye rolls exceed the number of days thus completed but I will not waiver in my support. I knew that when G.O made his mark on me back in April 2014, I was in it for the long haul. I have loved every moment of this journey. In looking over my countdown log, I note that it has been some time since I gave Mirror some love. All of the sudden I had this incredible urge to see some G.O-focused cam of him performing Mirror. So back we go for this Fan-Camming Friday to early August 2015 when our trio performed at the KT Wiz Civic Supporters Festival.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 499

So I had an idea of what I wanted to write about for today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment and then hit an indecisive wall, so to speak. My original choice for today was to revisit the Yeosu Pop Festival back on 5 August 2012. When I noticed that there was also ample reason to revisit the Asia Song Fest which was the day before Yeosu, I thought oh no ~ dilemma!! Then it occurred to me that I should just share both as we are at Day 499, the eve of another milestone: 500 days of service! I can think of no better way to begin that celebration than to inundate ourselves with G.O cam and pictures from these two wonderful performances.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 471

One of the five million things I absolutely adore about G.O is how he is the perfect balance of fiercely masculine and achingly tender. On either side of those spectrums are numerous examples of each. Today I opt for a fiercely masculine moment which will always be best displayed during a performance of 저쟁이야 [This Is War]. Even at the fiercest moments of RunStay or even Oh Yeah, nothing matches the furious vocals, choreography or penetratingly intense gazes that This Is War brings. Couple that with black on black on black costumery and the performance becomes all that more powerful. There really is nothing that can remotely temper G.O’s intensity during any This Is War performance. It definitely was present at the Busan Catholic University show back in May 2012. In fact, that kind of intensity only amplified the charisma and handsomeness that oozed from the stage that day. It is Fan-Camming Friday and a blast of G.O intensity is the perfect way to usher in the weekend.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 443

Can there be anything more romantic than the tender gaze of G.O’s eyes during a gentle ballad? Remember when he joined HaHa and Taw on The Show and laced his velvet vocals around their 내 품이 좋다던 사람 [The Person By My Side?] I wrote about it back on Day 177, which seems like ages ago now that we are at the mid-400 days mark. I remember how angelic G.O looked and sounded during that performance. I came across a short fan cam taken during the recording of that segment back on 20 March 2012 and share it as today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 422

The sound of a voice that is authoritative, abrupt and cold begins to flood his heart with the memory of a deep and painful loss. His mind is transported back to when she left. His heart is reminded of the void he is still suffering. He longs to hear her comforting voice and not his abusive tone. Dong Ho is devastated. Lost. Heartbroken. The intensely emotional 소리기억 [I Remember The Sound] in 서편제 [Seopyeonje] is a flashback moment from the mind of Dong Ho who relives the tragedy surrounding the death of his mother. A death he squarely blames on his stepfather, Yoo Bong. Continuing on my spring Seopyeonje revival, the heart-wrenching 소리기억 [I Remember The Sound] is the subject of our Fan-Camming Friday today.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 415

There is just something about 열쇠 [Key]. It seems to be one of those songs that digs deep into G.O and takes ahold of every fiber of emotion welling inside of him. From the Broken promotions to the final performances of the song into late 2014, you see it in his eyes when he sings it and without question, hear it in his voice. 열쇠 [Key] is a somber song filled with pleas to help ease the pain of a broken or closed heart and probably has one of the most poetic and touching choruses of any of MBLAQ’s songs. And yes, G.O is the commander of that chorus. Today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment is a G.O- focused cam taken during the performance of  the lyrically beautiful 열쇠 [Key] at MBLAQ’s July 2014 Summer Vacation in Tokyo.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 380

Late summer, early autumn 2014 had MBLAQ doing a bit of a concert crawl of sorts around South Korea which was amazing for their A+. From the end of August until the beginning of October, they graced many stages. However, it was during this time that things began to unravel for the group leading of course to the Curtain Call shows and ultimate reorganization of the group. But I don’t want to rehash those difficult times again. I do, however, wish to share a compilation fan cam of our endearing main vocal in the throes of 남자답게 [Be A Man] over the course of August – October 2014 as it is Fan-Camming Friday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 373

There was a time when G.O walked on US soil and yes, I missed it. Had I been dialed in to MBLAQ and all of their activities, I would have probably found my way to Los Angeles in April 2012 to experience a little slice of G.O’s genuine fan appreciation when a mini fan sign of sorts took place and he met with fans for a little one-on-one autograph session.

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.
