The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 665

In reviewing the past G.O One Shots where I have posted .gifs, I noticed that I have given the short teaser video for G.O’s second digital single Play That Song lots and lots of .gif love. And for good reason. The mini MV is 1:36 of pure vocal and visual bliss. So I decided that today I would simply add another .gif from the PTS video treasure chest because it is a gift that keeps giving.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 520

I really thought that I would settle into a fan meet/fan sign fan cam for today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment. That was my plan any way. But whenever I come across a cam of G.O singing, the choice is automatically made for me! This happened today when I came across a cam of G.O performing his second digital single, Play That Song during the Seoul Sensation Tour in November 2013. Usually come Friday, I am cranked up for the weekend. Not today. No, today, I want to ease into Friday with grace and romance. Is there any better way to do that than with G.O’s velvety voice?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 508

I admit that the closer we get to G.O’s discharge day, the more anxious I become over what he will do when he returns. My list for him is long <hehehe> as I would love to see him pursue many things. To me, G.O has an all encompassing talent that will allow him to explore many different artistic genres. At the foundation of it all is without question: music. With so many avenues of music that stretch beyond singing, G.O’s opportunities will be many. As he is no stranger to the OST, I hope that we will hear more of his work as both a vocalist and composer for many future OSTs. In the meantime, I would like to revisit a clip of his beautiful ballad from the Dr. Stranger OST, 내일이 안 올 것처럼 [Like Tomorrow Won’t Come] in a cappella form. A true Vocal Virtuosity moment.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 504

In keeping with the gentle flow from yesterday, my One Shot will ease right into that momentum with a .gif taken from the MV for G.O’s second digital single, Play That Song. Captivating and romantic, it is a wonderfully soothing way to help push us softly over the hump of the midweek and inch us closer to the weekend.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 335

I truly am of the firm belief that there is a time, season and reason for all things that happen in our lives. I still remember so clearly Lee Joon’s words during one of the Curtain Call shows back in November 2014 where he said that even brushing against someone’s shoulder is one’s karma. It may sound all granola breath and tree huggy, but I think that he (like me) believes in the power and force of the universe and how our lives play into and are affected by it, including the people we meet and come in contact with. This is perhaps why I completely missed falling heart first into the G.O vortex before he released either of his digital singles, and most notably, Play That Song. I wasn’t ready. But I came close, for it was by early December 2013 that I was on the road to G.O-ville. All things for a reason.^^ For our G.O One Shot today, I steal a moment from the mini Play That Song MV, in .gif form.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 307

What I love most about G.O’s performance of Play That Song on the 22 November 2013 broadcast of Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook is that he is backed by a live band and back up singers which I feel gives a soulful weight to the earthiness of this incredible R&B ballad. The dynamic of a live band backing G.O is how I envision him performing…..always.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 193

I cannot believe it took almost 200 days before I decided to write about G.O’s first solo single, 내꿈에 서라도 [Even In My Dreams], the tender and romantic ballad he wrote and composed that was released in July 2011. In that I always want to celebrate G.O’s music as well as his writing and composing skills, I am surprised I waited this long! Well, it is a Sunday and so it goes that something light and romantic should be the main course of the day.
