Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 33

Legend has it that a true test of vocal acuity in the K-pop ranks can be best tested by the singer’s ability to sing So Chan Whee’s Tears, in its original key. Apparently, this is no small feat. Tears was released in 2000 and was (and continues to be) Chan Whee’s most remembered song. Back in July 2018, four of the A.C.E lads guested on Idol League and host, Boom challenged Donghun to sing Tears . . . but not before the other three decided to give it a try. Oh, the chaos!

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 30

A couple weeks ago, I debuted the Pre-Debut DH series here within the countdown and talked a little about Donghun’s fateful beginnings as a contestant on the Korean music talent program Superstar K5. I mentioned then that Donghun did pass through the preliminary auditions to land in the top 100 and went on to compete. In fact, he eventually made to the finals, as in top ten. But here’s the twist, he landed in the top ten as part of the four member group, Plan B.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 728

More nostalgia today because G.O’s variety show bank is filled with hours and pictures of memories. And you know how much I enjoy traveling back to them and sharing them here. It is a Wednesday, Day 728 of this countdown and there are three days remaining in G.O’s service. It is also the day of love, Valentine’s Day. However, I love on G.O every day so every day is like Valentine’s Day to me.^^ Anyway, my rule book for this V Day is calling for some cute and adorable G.O to help perk up the mid-week and maybe even make you all hearts-in-eyes swoony. Let’s go back to a November 2010 recording of SBS’s long-running and very popular variety show, Star King.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 721

Can it be? Have we finally reached the final ten days of G.O’s service?! Indeed we have and because I am in a really good mood as a result, I thought we could go back to a little bit of the fun and games had during Episode 15 of Oh! My School/100 points out of 100. Not only did we get some adorable G.O, we got some adorable G.O trying to avoid elimination from the ‘guess my word’ game while singing Wheesung. And that is nothing short of a double bonus.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 699

When I first discovered G.O, it was indeed his voice that held the spotlight initially. This is true. But as I began to learn more about him, the more intriguing and captivating he became. I have talked about many of his endearing and fine characteristics throughout this countdown series, often times repeating them incessantly. I cannot help it. The man has captivated me in a way that compels me to continue to discover more about him and share why he is so very special. One of the many endearing qualities he possesses is his humor. G.O has been sharing his unique wit with his fans since the beginning and he continues to do so in his own special way through today. I thought the perfect way to celebrate the next letter up in The ABC’s of G.O was to do so by enjoying a little taste of G.O’s charming humor.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 696

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.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 651

Some of you may know this about me but in the world outside of my dedicated fangirl duties, I have been for some time and currently am an executive legal secretary in a law firm. So the notion of G.O participating in a variety program that placed him in a position of novice attorney is something I could absolutely appreciate. I have been around brilliant minds and venture to say that had he pursued a career in law, G.O would probably have made a formidable attorney. Attorneys are generally very quick thinkers and are persuasive. I would say G.O has those covered.^^ I must confess however that I have never had the privilege of working along side an attorney that has had his kind of charisma. Furthermore, I have yet to see an attorney light up a courtroom with the kind of hip groove G.O gave viewers during his stint on the MBC legal variety program, 연애 위자료 청구사건 [Dating Alimony Case]. For today then, a playful moment from the courtroom which also doubles as a G.O ~ Juri moment since, well they were both on the show and briefly shared the spotlight together.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 624

Since it is Thursday, I thought it would be nice to throw things back to 2009, and to the artful lens of A Lucky Day. The series of photographs she captured back on 1 December 2009 when G.O and Mir appeared on MNET’s Open Studio are each gorgeous captures that could have easily been shot this year, or even last week (you know, before he exiled the goatee). Seriously. So today a little nostalgic beanie chic from our ageless wonder of a main vocal.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 607

I feel like a Windows To Your Soul ~ The G.O Eye Connect moment today and found a nice example in fan-cam form. I thought about waiting until Friday to make it a double categoried day but then figured why wait? I am relaxing my rules these final days of G.O’s service. I should even try to challenge myself to come up with fan-cam moments for each day remaining. I am confident there are enough cams out there to satisfy that challenge and I am sure it would be cool with everyone, right? Hehehe….cams will steadily make appearances regardless of the day and if I chose that route, I would not get my One Shot moments in or finish the alphabet in The ABC’s of G.O sub-series. And you know I must keep those selca moments in rotation. Therefore, I will stay my current course. For today then I give an Eye Connect moment from the taping of the MBC Korean variety program, 매직쇼크 [Magic Shock].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 594

It is without question the best of both worlds when we get to hear G.O sing while also simultaneously experiencing a little of his playfulness. Because he is so deeply dedicated to his craft, I think he often keeps the two separate. What I mean is, when G.O is singing he is perhaps in a completely different mind and heart space. He simply does not seem like the type to make light of his passion. But every now and then we can catch him mingling the two. I share a really quick playful moment today from the SBS Korean variety/comedy program, People Looking For Laughter.
