The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 466

It has been a while since I have had a little CF fun on the Countdown. I know it is Sunday, but sometimes Sundays are fun days, right? I am sure you remember the short burst of high octane energy the men of MBLAQ brought to their endorsement of Ball’n athletic footwear back in the late autumn of 2011. Call me crazy, but in addition to enjoying G.O as a genuinely talented artist, I admit to enjoy watching him just have a little fun.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 280

The genius that is Korean advertising will never cease to amaze me. I think of all of the revenue that could be generated in the west if advertisers enlisted more artists to help endorse their products. True, there are plenty who do endorse, but not in the way or to the level of their Korean counterparts. A commercial film (CF) using the artists’ music is one thing.  Building a story around the product and then dropping the artists into the CF creating an advertisement in the guise of a short film is a whole new level. Remember the liptasticness that was the MBLAQ Chapstick endorsement?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 114

While an endorsement by the men of MBLAQ (collectively or individually) always yielded some amazing photographs for us to count among our treasures, some endorsements also came with fan signs. Such was the case with MBLAQ’s Lecaf campaign.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 90

Friends, we are at Day 90!!!! Yes, our beloved main vocal man G.O has now completed three full months of his service! I know for some of you it probably still seems like time is dragging, especially since we are all missing him so very much. And even if my Countdown posts are backfiring on me and making me miss him more, I am still enjoying the revisits of his past work. Since it is officially my birthday in Seoul, I think a little G.O and chocolate are in order.  Let’s take a short trip back in time to MBLAQ’s very first solo CF for Lotte Confectionaries.

G.O (Jung Byung Hee)

When I decided upon one of the MBLAQ boys as my next K-Shot, I thought I would have immediately gone straight to Yang Seung Ho who I always felt was my favorite. And true, I could have chosen any one of the members as they all have that special something. If they didn’t, Rain would not have singled them out and groomed them as he did, right? Then I watched the Cry MV and G.O just did me in and promptly stole me away from Seung Ho. In my opinion, he has a lot of Rain quality about him. The way he moves, the way he plays to the camera, the way he delivers a song – all reminiscent of Rain. Furthermore, I think he resembles Rain very much. And, G.O is sexy. And so, of the five that could have made their way here, it is G.O who out-ranked the rest as my next K-Shot of Hot. ♥
