The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 380

Late summer, early autumn 2014 had MBLAQ doing a bit of a concert crawl of sorts around South Korea which was amazing for their A+. From the end of August until the beginning of October, they graced many stages. However, it was during this time that things began to unravel for the group leading of course to the Curtain Call shows and ultimate reorganization of the group. But I don’t want to rehash those difficult times again. I do, however, wish to share a compilation fan cam of our endearing main vocal in the throes of 남자답게 [Be A Man] over the course of August – October 2014 as it is Fan-Camming Friday.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 232

Our charming main vocal would like to call your attention to the fact that he now has UNDER 500 DAYS LEFT OF HIS SERVICE!! Yes, it is true. As G.O completes his 232nd day of service today, he officially has 499 remaining. Frankly, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it is growing brighter and brighter each day. For today, I just want to celebrate G.O as seen through my own camera. These are not new and this is not the full collection of what I have been fortunate to capture. Nor are they perfect as I seem to have lots of trouble keeping my camera steady when I point it at him.  So it goes . . .

[series] 116 Reasons to Love Byung Hee: #10 ~ Undercover Cover Lover


When you wake one morning and realize all you want to do is sing, you hear music in everything. I have a feeling this is exactly what G.O felt when that realization hit. From that point on, he most likely became an ardent student of music. And although it was no doubt he was hearing his own compositions in his head and perhaps keeping a journal of poetry that would transform into lyrics, the first songs he sang were probably the songs of other artists. For G.O, I suspect the songs he sang in those early days were his guide and his lessons, and the artists themselves, his mentors and his teachers. It is no wonder then he would ultimately pay homage to them by covering those songs that guided him to become the incredible vocalist he is today. The beauty of his education, however, is that he did not limit himself to the songs of Korean artists. His deep respect for music (all music) and his choice to cover many songs that were sung in a language foreign to him (English) are valid and honorable reasons to continue to love this amazing man.

When The Universe Conspires – Prelude to the Curtain Call


I had a plan. It was a good plan. I had the goods. They were nice goods. And, I had a bias (G.O) ready to celebrate a birthday on November 6th. Having given Federal Express a good chunk of my hard-earned change via my MBLAQ Love Package campaign, I figured they would be the best bet to get my bias his birthday gifts, and do so well in advance of the actual celebration day. Best laid plans, right? It seems Fedex along with the Universe (and the Suwon Lotte Department Store) had something else in mind. When the birthday box failed to pass through customs in Seoul and was returned to me, it seemed the only way that darling man was going to receive his gift from my Byung Hee World blog partner, Nelly (MyMyooz) and I, was if I would deliver it to him myself.

When The Tears of Your Bias Beckon You


Our heart controls our inner most emotions, allowing us to be forthright, dynamic, and sometimes impulsive.

It was to be just another appearance by MBLAQ. One of those appearances where they chat a little, sing a little, then call it a night. However, the seemingly ordinary evening of October 2nd at the Hwangryeong Festival in Busan turned out to be anything but ordinary. The air seemed heavy. The mood heavier, and something simply did not feel right.
