Well it is Saturday my lovelies and we are closing in on the 700th day of G.O’s service. Can you believe it? Let’s just everyone breathe for a few seconds, okay? I am trying to keep a lid on my own excitement, but it is growing next to impossible. And it will continue to be impossible to contain it as we get closer to the actual discharge date. Therefore, I will simply embrace it and will do so by keeping the energy flowing with another G.O Dance Break moment. It is a Saturday after all! So hop into the MBLAQ time machine with me and let’s travel back to Episode 6 of Idol Army.
For today’s G.O One Shot, I am not going to go overboard like I did with the last one. However, I am going to indulge a little bit by not limiting myself to just one .gif. I am sure you won’t mind. So on this 652nd day of his service, a little G.O charm from the 24 August 2012 broadcast of MBC’s All The K-Pop Show.
I know I cannot possibly be the only one of G.O’s fans who, in addition to love hearing him sing, finds his speaking voice equally charming and soothing. Lately, I have been taking a different approach to learning Korean. Instead of initially pouring over a textbook, I have decided to log hours of just listening. Remember the Sweet Music Box broadcast on SBS radio G.O did back in 2010 with Jung Go Eun? Those have been my constant listening skills teaching companion this past month. It is helping but since I really love the tone and timbre of G.O’s voice, I get easily distracted from the task at hand. Nevertheless, learning this way is actually a pleasurable experience. But what does this have to do with anything? Well, it is Fan-Camming Friday and I decided upon a cam from the 15 April 2012 Daejeon fan sign where fans were regaled with one of G.O’s cheeky discussions.
Are any of you hopeless romantics like me yet lose sight of the fact that you are? I am sure there are a few of you out there. You know, had your heartbroken a couple few times but on a good day somehow feel that love is still transcendent? Sometimes when I look back at G.O’s roles in either Pure Love or Couples Clinic, I am reminded that I am indeed a hopeless and quite often, helpless romantic. My G.O One Shot today is a little shot of some G.O romantic from Pure Love.
What is his process? Does the melody come and then the lyrics? Are there sometimes only lyrics and no melody? Or only a melody which he gently sets aside to contemplate or place before collaborators for words? Perhaps it is a maelstrom of words and melody that collide simultaneously within his heart and soul wherein all of the parts piece together like an intrique puzzle and a song is born. Whatever his process, G.O has proven himself to be an adept lyricist and composer. Our first glimpse of his writing prowess came with Tykeys 한번만 [Only Once], but with MBLAQ, we had our first taste with 돌아올 수 없는 [Can’t Come Back], his powerful dance track composition which provided the backdrop to Mir’s lyrics. Traveling back today to Blaq Style ~ 3D Edition, to honor Composer G.O.
