The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 661

I have been thinking about the Men In Blaq concert recently. It was MBLAQ’s first major concert and therefore pretty special. The one thing about the early concert tours that I did not get to experience at Curtain Call back in November 2014, were the special stages. I was thinking about all of the G.O special stages I did not get to see which makes me hungry for all upcoming special stages he will give us when he returns. But this post is not about special stages or even really the MIB concert. No, it is a just quick visit to a moment of G.O’s Fabled Fan Service that just so happened to have occurred on that day, 20 August 2011. It probably may not necessarily be deemed blatant fan service; but to me, whenever G.O engages with fans outside of the purview of a fan sign, fan meeting or performance, he is more than exercising fan service. He is exercising a desire to connect which is fan service on steroids.^^

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 637

Any fan who has had the opportunity to meet his or her bias in person all walk away with amazing and adventurous stories to tell to be sure. Those moments become committed and embedded to memory, probably for a lifetime. And yes, those moments are often relived over and over. It is natural and understandable. I would have to guess that over the course of his ten plus years of fan appreciation, G.O has left many hearts marked with memories of his sweet and gracious fan service. I recently came across an early fan account and thought it would serve as a wonderful example of G.O’s Fabled Fan Service.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 325

Every day is a good day to celebrate G.O’s congenial fan service, no matter how he serves it up. True, I have missed experiencing these memories real time, but to be able to relive and watch his gregarious interaction with his fans remains a never-ending pleasure for me no matter how long ago in past or relatively recent these moments have occurred. Reliving them through the many days of this countdown often times makes them feel as if they have happened only yesterday. So many may remember the subject of today’s post, the Yeongdeungpo fan sign during Blaq% promotions in January 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 288

When I look at old fan cams of showcases, fan meets and fan signs, I am always so taken with G.O’s genuine and often heartfelt appreciation of his fans. Never one to shy away from speaking, pranking or even fulfilling fans’ requests (no matter how absurd) and often without hesitancy or even protest, he truly is an artist who will go to great lengths to please us, always. If his talent and charm were not already enough, his gratitude and appreciation for his fans has no match. Yes, I am biased but I can also proclaim such based upon my own personal experiences. G.O’s playful affection caught back at the outdoor mini fan meet in March 2012 is the subject of Day 288 (the 1st day of December!) and another installment of G.O’s Fabled Fan Service.
