Remember when G.O completed his first 100 days and it felt so good? Well, how does 700 feel?!! I would say it feels pretty spectacular with the only thing topping it being the completion of 730 days and his official discharge. I cannot believe G.O’s service is almost complete. I also cannot believe I am actually writing a 700th post! Nothing fancy here today other than to celebrate this milestone and to thank those of you who have been on this long, long journey with me. Your continued love and support for this amazing artist of man has made this labor of love worth every moment. We are almost there, G.Oddesses! In one month G.O returns and, in one month and seven days he will meet with his beloved fans.
Welcome 2018!!! We have been waiting for you. You have been on our minds for the past two years and we could not be happier to see you. This is it, G.Oddesses ~ we are one month and sixteen days from G.O’s military discharge. There was a time when 2018 seemed so distant, and even unreachable! But look . . . here we are! Finally! I have to admit that this past year has moved quickly and I think part of it is because of G.O’s consistent updates throughout the year. He has made the wait bearable while at the same time has created incredible excitement and anticipation for his return. We are literally almost there. Are you excited!? Happy New Year everyone! May it be filled with health, happiness, love and lots of G.O!!~😘
This is it G.Oddess . . . the last 100 days!!! Can you feel the energy and excitement growing? Are you as anxious as I am to see what G.O has in store for us when he returns? Throughout this countdown series I have been trying to not let my excitement get too out of hand as we chipped away at the days of his service. But I think now that we are left with only 100 days . . . yeah, I think we can all start to get a little crazy. In one hundred days, G.O will be back!
On the evening of 20 September, G.O took to his Instagram account unexpectedly updating mid-week by pulling this amazing shot out of the archives and playfully captioning it:
종로 귀금속집 사장아들같네
[Like the son of a Jong-ro jewelry shop owner]
Ok, so to give this some context, what G.O is basically saying here is that he is looking all big and bold, Jong-ro style. However, he is being extremely humorous about it. Jong-ro is an area in Seoul where you might not see many hipsters for example, but will see many people of a more advanced age. Like in senior citizen age. <hahahaha> G.O is alluding to the fact that he is not being trendy or cute but rather is rocking it old school style. He’s so adorably silly!
If I told you you were beautiful, would you date me on the regular?
Sometimes a Vocal Virtuosity moment shows up when I least expect it. So as you all know, I joined the MBLAQ party train late in the game. As a result, I missed a lot. A-LOT. Even if G.O had to complete four years of military service I still do not think that would give me enough time to see, hear and experience everything he has done these past ten years he has been living his dream as a singer, composer and actor. There is SO MUCH. I love it of course as it is keeping me busy while he is away. So today I discovered something I had not seen (or heard) before and I knew immediately that I wanted to secure it in the Vocal Virtuosity archives. I know all of you dedicated MBLAQ-philes remember the ETN Entertainment News Interview back on 23 June 2010. You also know then that even if it was brief, G.O covered some Justin Timberlake.
If you have been taking this countdown journey with me these past 555 days (and even visited well before then), you know how much I love to talk about G.O’s beauty ~ both inner and outer. Yeah, it is pretty much a mainstay here mostly because I never grow tired of talking about it, and also because he consistently gives me reasons to celebrate his gentle but ever potent beauty. I know I have become redundant but still, it will never stop me from saying it one more time! Maybe I need to create a new vocabulary or language designed just for him you know, to spice things up. How very Tolkien of me! That sounds too complex actually and I rather like to keep it simple! Today is a Fan-Camming Friday day and I decided I am going to keep it short and simple on the cam end, but supplement the post with a bounty of G.O’s beauty captured at Music Bank Hong Kong on 23 June 2012.
I think my desire to start posting more fan art is so I can look at that adorable picture of G.O up there with his dinosaur drawing! He just looks so cute and the overall composition of the picture is very warm and inviting. The soft pillows, the beautiful trees, the way the sunlight is filtering through the windows. It kind of sets the stage for art, doesn’t it? Today’s offering comes from Russian artist, Lera Pak.
MBLAQ has visited the Beatles Code studios a few times over the course of their cumulative variety show appearances all of which have been very entertaining. But do you recall the radiance of G.O during the 20 January 2011 episode? Definitely worth a capture in .gif form and a perfect offering for our G.O One Shot for today. *deep sigh*
Three days. Six updates. On the evening of 6 August, G.O blessed his Instagram account (and us) with yet another update. I can only surmise that since he has most likely been free from work and military duty, he took advantage of being able to communicate with us full tilt. I don’t know about any of you, but he certainly made my otherwise mundane weekend one of the more exciting and memorable ones of 2017.
I was beginning to think that G.O’s survival report update back on 14 July 2017 would be the only one we would get for the month of July and if you remember that boudoir shot, it would have been more than enough. However, I was pleasantly surprised by his late night 29 July update. Enjoying camaraderie, good food and some adult beverages, G.O and pal 2PM’s Jun. K paused a moment to create some selca magic.
