The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 716

When isn’t Y a sexy feast to behold? Most always never. It has always been one of MBLAQ’s most provocative songs with an equally intense performance when brought to the stage. So when MBLAQ decided to include it in their performance repertoire at the 4 June 2013 Sexy Beat showcase, I think it pretty much left fans unhinged. Maybe it was all of the black leather and sheer components of their stage wear. Oh my . . . sexy beat certainly lived up to its name. Let’s not hesitate a moment longer and get to the Friday Fan-Camming offering for the day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 679

I have a question for you. Do you think you have the patience and stamina to hear me declare how amazing, talented and wonderful G.O is for 52 more days? This countdown series has been a long haul and frankly, I cannot even believe that I have posted something daily now for 679 days (counting this one, of course). As I sat down to write today, I really started to wonder if my friends who have been visiting the blog throughout the countdown have had their fill and/or are bored. I mean it has already been 678 days of me telling you that which you already know, right? But, I hope you will humor me for just a little bit longer as we are literally in the home stretch. Today I give you something simple. Something I want to call Through Fan Eyes which is really nothing groundbreaking or new since the bulk of what I have shared here has been my adoration of G.O as given through various pictures, videos and the like of his fans. I love fan-made videos honoring the beauty and talent of G.O and so I give you a little of that today from the Samsung Display Union Festival back on 6 May 2013.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 410

I knew at some point in this countdown series that I would get a chance to completely love on one of my favorite performances of MBLAQ’s Smoky Girl . . . ever. The 26 June 2013 MBC Music Picnic Live performance was probably about as sultry and steamy as that summer day (it reach 86°F/30°C…I checked) itself. Once again a group effort back by a live band, there were still some delicious G.O standout moments nevertheless which give me rise to place the Picnic Live performance of Smoky Girl securely in the Vocal Virtuosity category. It is Day 410 and perhaps a bit sinful to get this steamy for Sunday, but I cannot help myself. And really, the steam comes early and cools off into an energetic and fun upbeat version of this killer song.~.^

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 408

Mmmmmmm . . . sexy Sexy Beat, how I do love to revisit thee. The music, the style, and the drop dead gorgeous that is G.O, all of it a feast for the senses. For this Fan-Camming Friday, I turn to the fantastic editing skill of the mysterious MemenGO. In June 2013, MBLAQ was blazing hot and ferociously promoting their fifth mini album, Sexy Beat. During that steamy summer month, the men gave fans 7 glorious fan signs (Ilsan, Yeongdeungpo, Jongno, Yeouido, Sinchon, Incheon and Yongsan). Masternim MemenGO’s fan cam mix that I share today contains those moments captured at the June 15-16 and June 21-22 fan signs.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 394

Hehehehehe……this man and his adorable sense of humor never cease to entertain me. Instead of a music-oriented Fan-Camming Friday moment today, I am choosing a little blip of G.O from the 9 June 2013 mini Inkigayo outdoor fan meeting. In addition to the incredible Sexy Beat style that he knew he was absolutely killing (and he totally was), G.O also made it a point to mention that even though he wears sunglasses, he has very handsome eyes.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 370

When I sit down to consider upcoming Countdown posts, I find myself fighting the urge to make every day a Vocal Virtuosity day. I really enjoy listening to G.O sing. It is that simple. I am reminded time and again how rich, soothing and calming G.O’s voice is the quiet tenderness of a beautiful ballad. This is how I feel about Celebrate. And today, it is the warm embrace I am absolutely yearning for and need to share.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 354

Things on my side of the world have been a little off and weird as of late due to our present political climate so I am grateful to have my little escape passage here on the blog in this countdown series. Every time I sit down to write about G.O it feels good. Even when I have to write about his interpretation of a particularly heartbreaking song or a devastatingly emotional moment from the musical stage, I always end up happy to have shined some light on his indomitable talent. Although everything about him makes me smile, his playful fan sign moments are special kinds of treasures. Today I share one from the Sexy Beat fan sign in Masan back on 20 July 2013.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 341

It is without question that G.O can create emotional reaction with his vocals. Whether he sings tenderly or with powerful lamentation, you feel something when he releases the notes. I also concede that the visuals captured of him singing are equally powerful. Much like a painter or sculptor must paint or sculpt the story of his art on a canvas or in stone, a singer must become the canvas of the song which moves through him as he sings. Yes, I will repeat that which I have said over and over, I love the way music moves through G.O. He and his music are an amazing blend of sound and visuals, even when he is simply standing on the stage with a single spotlight illuminating his tender presence. For this G.O One Shot day, some captures of music moving through this brilliant young artist as seen (and felt) during the Blaq% Tour.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 323

I cannot help but give today’s post two labels: One Shot as well as Playful G.O for it is the perfect combination of both. I always seem to find it somewhat of a delight watching G.O slowly enjoy the delicious sweetness of a gummy worm such as this playful moment caught in .gif form from the 21 July 2013 Cheongju fan sign.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 273

I love G.O’s voice, his quick wit, intellect and smile. His quiet humbleness and gracious manner have no match. Tie that all up into his gummy worm-loving playfulness and it truly does make you wish he were your brother, your uncle…or even your boyfriend. Bless the fangirls who captured those moments where our mischievous main vocal so matter-of-factly made the gummy worm an all out fashion statement and super sweet accessory.
