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 . . .

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 215

The many shades of black, chrome and sophisticated blue of G.O in the Japanese Mona Lisa MV is all that is needed today to satisfy the G.O One Shot slot for Day 215 of G.O’s military service. In GIF formation, I am keeping it short, sweet, and decidedly sexy.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 132

Today marks G.O’s 132nd day of service which puts him officially under 600 days remaining! Yes, it may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but each day completed is another day closer to discharge and that makes me happy. To celebrate this small milestone, I want to honor G.O, the composer. On this 132nd day, I ask you Byung Hee, R U Ok?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 110

It has been one year. One year since the men of MBLAQ stepped onto their first stage as a trio at Omiya Sonic City in Saitama, Japan. I think back on those two very important performances and am filled with so many emotions, still. I told you I was the sentimental type. Nevertheless, I remain so very grateful to have been there to support G.O, Seung Ho and Mir, and on this 11oth day of G.O’s service, commemorate the anniversary of that very special day.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 69

By 2011 and well into their second full year as a group, MBLAQ was indelibly embraced (and rightfully so) by Japan; their JA+ fandom strong and growing. They were gaining so much popularity and love in Japan that Odina Magazine featured them not once, not twice, but three times in 2011. One year, three cover stories. Too much……wait, no, there can never ever be too much G.O!!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 37

In December 2009, Rain took his five talented protégées to Japan to introduce them to his Japanese fans. And thus began Japan’s love affair with the glorious men living in absolute quality. The really amazing part of this moment in MBLAQ’s history was that MNET Japan decided to document the group’s first visit to Japan for their 2010 K-Pop Star Series. In the documentary entitled Yo! Tokyo, fans were able to get to know a little more about MBLAQ from the men themselves. For me, however, the sweetest revelation in this documentary was watching G.O own the fact that he pulled rank as the member of MBLAQ most favored by the more *cough* mature fan base.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 19

 

Sometimes it is impossible to single out a favorite MBLAQ song. But when I start to focus on specific criteria, like written and composed by G.O, for example, it narrows the selection. And even though I love each and every one of his songs in and of themselves that he has written and composed, it is 봄여름가을 그리고. . .  [Spring Summer Autumn and . . .] that I must single out as my absolute favorite.

Subtle, Sweet & Sonic – MBLAQ Takes The Stage As A Trio

 150606 MBLAQ Omiya Sonic City MBLAQ Group shot (2nd Show)

I think this is becoming commonplace for me….I see my bias and something happens. My world gets gently rocked. My mind goes into a flux. I grasp to find balance and try to remain coherent. The thought of putting together a couple of sentences to verbalize (and of course memorialize) the experience escapes me for at least a good month, sometimes longer. Such is the case here, again.

This could be problematic. The further from the experience I get, the possibility of remembering becomes an issue, especially at my age. However, when it comes to the gentle G.O, the one who has unceremoniously laid claim to my heart, those experiences I have involving him tend to leave their mark. Those moments are pretty much imprinted and branded into the memory of that heart, and I am forever scarred. You see, heart memory is strong and true. Like any muscle, it remembers. Therefore, I have faith I will be able to share with you at lease some of those moments I had in his presence this past June when I attended the shows at Omiya Sonic City in Japan.
