The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 706

I admit to being apprehensive about including G.O’s involvement in the December 2012 SBS Gayo Daejeon Color of K-Pop extravaganza here on the countdown for one reason and one reason only: He had to share the spotlight. Now, I am not adverse to him sharing the spotlight, usually. I don’t mind when he is on stage with his MBLAQ brothers or on the musical stage with other musical actors. But because I am not so keen about him losing vocal time as rule (even as a member of MBLAQ), I am less enamored of him losing it to other idols! Extreme bias rising over here! Nevertheless, I enjoyed his collaboration as part of Dramatic Blue and happily place it in the Heavenly Collaborations file here on the Countdown. Besides, he looked extraordinarily handsome in that blue Guy Laroche suit.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 705

No matter how many times I go back to look at the incredible captures A Lucky Day gave fans during her time documenting the early evolution of MBLAQ, I am still left in awe of her work. And, grateful. Today I honor her (along with her subject of course) in my newly created category of Through Fan Eyes. Through her, we were invited to experience the magnetic charm of G.O’s stage presence, and often. From the TBS Sharing Love Concert back on 13 March 2010, I invite you to resist the lure of G.O. Good luck!~😉

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 702

It seems that I am not quite ready to walk away from the summer of 2015 and G.O in a sexy black fedora quite just yet. A black fedora is always a sophisticated style choice. It is classic and elegant. And when pulled down low across one eye it adds a sense of mystery and danger. A fedora is wearable film noir and I have to say that it added a powerful and mature feel to G.O’s stage presence during 전쟁이야 [This Is War] at the Daejeong Super Concert on 30 August 2015. It’s Fan-Camming Friday and Day 702 . . . let’s do this!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 701

Each one of us has our own way to navigate and express emotion. Some are screamers while others are silent. Some are weepy while others are stoic. Then there are the lucky ones who are able to express emotion through art. I do not know where G.O would fall on the spectrum were he not an artist. But I do think he most readily has used music to reveal the emotions of his heart be they emotions that have expressed happiness or those that have been wrought with heartbreak.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 695

I think it is a good day to go wild, don’t you? 2012 was one very bountiful year. So much MBLAQ goodness including the sub-unit collaboration of G.O and Mir. Usually prone to high jinks and mischief, our wild pair traded in their playful images with some in-you-face swag during the Blaq% Asia Tour that year with their provocative single, Wild and it is my choice for this Fan-Camming Friday day.

ABCs of G.O V is for Virile

I know it is my extreme bias talking here but if we take a moment to discuss who is likely the most virile member in MBLAQ, G.O definitely holds the title. I mean, you have to agree to some extent that his virility was soundly in place perhaps even prior to his debut with MBLAQ. Am I right? I think maybe G.O was simply born virile. Hence, it is the perfect adjective to describe him as we further our way through the ABC’s of G.O here on the countdown.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 691

I know that when it comes to 낙서 [Scribble], G.O does not have very much vocal time. In fact, he barely has any and often shares vocal time in the song with Seungho. But what he does for the song is give it richness. His voice is the seasoning that flavors and enhances the emotion of the song. In the moments we do get to hear the honey of G.O’s voice, we are once again reminded of his virtuosity and that is why I will always place 낙서 [Scribble] among all other Vocal Virtuosity moments here on the countdown.
