The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 590

Has anyone else been taking long strolls along Blaq Style street as of late? Blaq Style has been wooing me recently and I have been finding myself listening to the album exclusively as well as foraging the internet for pictures and cams. Apart from the eclectic blend of music on the album itself, the visuals that accompanied it in both MVs and public performances were simultaneously powerful and sensual. G.O settling into a softer look proved to be even more lethal when coupled with the fierce on stage performances of Oh Yeah and Stay. So in the interest of not giving you too much sensory overload, I offer two short G.O-focused cam clips from MBLAQ’s performance at the Wonju Oak Valley event on 5 February 2011.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 587

Today, it is quite simple. It is Tuesday and Tuesdays are generally unremarkable. If you work a typical corporate office job like I do, Tuesday is only the second day of the work week and still seems so far from the weekend. Really, there is only one way to give Tuesday a boost and I think the best option is a blast of explosive super sexy G.O circa the Cry era. It is a G.O One Shot day and it would be unfair to limit myself to only one shot today.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 584

Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears. ~Edgar Allan Poe

Beauty and style documentaries can prove to be informative to keep up to date with trends but when your bias is thrown into the mix, they become even more engaging. I for one can appreciate a nice indirect tutorial on how to replicate the aesthetically appealing and indeed glamorous look our beautiful main vocal presented with the release of MBLAQ’s first full length studio album Blaq Style. In fact, I can only dream of aspiring to look as stunning. Nevertheless, it was a delight to watch long time make up artist to our men, Ham Kyung Shik, work his magic on G.O on the beauty and style show, Trend-E Beauty Project.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 534

Happy Friday! Are any of you having difficulty wrapping your brains around the fact that it is now August 2017 and the year (the second and final of G.O’s military service) is more than half over?! It is off the charts exciting because we are soon to have G.O back. In all honesty though, he really has done well in making us feel as if he has not even been away. For real, right? His countless survival reports have remedied any pain and longing we may have felt over the course of these 534 days. He has been amazing at keeping in contact. We are so lucky. We are also lucky in that he has left a robust trail of pictures, cams and performances that have kept us (well, at least me anyway) satiated while we hunger for his return. This would include today’s offering from the Blaq Style days. Oh my . . . when G.O asks you to stay in his heart and also pleads for one more try, he means business.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 436

I am not quite ready to leave MBLAQ’s participation in the K-Pop Heal The World show in Singapore back in June 2011. Moving from the lovely selca yesterday and into Fan-Camming Friday,  I found a short clip of a G.O-focused cam captured at the very end of MBLAQ’s performance of 다시 [Again]. Short like in 20 seconds short. That is short. But it is Friday and everyone should be eager to start the weekend, right? I will even try to keep my words at a minimum. <~~~ Is that even possible?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 304

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.
