In The Event Of An Event ~ MBLAQ Treasure Chest

When I look at these three gorgeous and talented men, I am filled with inspiration. I am also filled with an inexplicable desire to share my love for them in ways that perhaps some feel is outrageous and uncommon. And I have to be honest, I have struggled because there are days when I don’t even understand me either!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 157

Have you ever had one of those in between days? You know, the kind that aren’t really good, but aren’t necessarily bad either? Where the mood of the day or your own mood teeters somewhere in the middle, neutral to everything? That was my day today. So by the time I got on my train to head home for the evening, I was looking to shake myself free from the neutral with something and that something turned out to be Episode 15 of the KBS wacky variety show, Idol Maknae Rebellion. Oh…what a perfect tonic it was to watch the antics of G.O and Mir.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 150

150 days served!! Ok, true, there are quite a few more to go, but I still love to celebrate each day completed as it means G.O is closer to returning. Now with maknae Mir enlisted and safely at training camp (it’s Day 2 for him), I feel like a beaming parent (er..uh wait, more like a thrilled older sister) full of pride and happy that 2/3 of MBLAQ are currently serving together. There is a sweet synchronicity of having our beloved wild brothers serving just 148 days apart from each other. So I think today, I just want to love on the brotherhood of G.O and Mir.

G.O’s InstaHAPPYgram

Every day is a good day to be a MBLAQ fan but today was extra special. With G.O quietly serving out his military duties in public service, social media updates are cautiously allowed. He has restrained absent a few Twitter/Instagram profile picture changes which is a sweet (and cheeky) way to connect with his adoring fans while he is away. He went one better today by updating his Instagram account with this gorgeous picture of himself along with Seung Ho and Mir with a caption that read:

The three of us have been reunited after a long time.
We’ve worked hard.  Can you tell what cds are behind us.

I can work with infrequent updates from him if there are more selcas (solo or with the group) in the future. Then again, I am perfectly content with any method he chooses, so long as he continues to stay in contact. ^.~

In The Event Of An Event

I am finding that the more I continue to write about MBLAQ’s G.O, the more nostalgic I become remembering how I came to the MBLAQ fandom which in turn makes me reminiscent about many things, including the package events. I think about those events often. Although I almost always have very fond memories, there are still times I regret having done them at all. I have learned that overall people (and this is certainly not specific to our fandom) know how to take, but rarely do they know how to receive. It’s tricky. The receiving thing. I think many of us are not particularly comfortable in receiving, feeling undeserving or ineligible. Perhaps it is because some have primarily been givers that it becomes difficult to navigate the emotions of gratitude that flood our hearts when we are on the receiving end of anything be it words, physical gift, or even assistance. I understand because I, too, have trouble receiving. But, I am getting better at it. I have found that in giving I receive more than I could ever want for in a thousand lifetimes, and that has helped me become a better receiver.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 115

If you have had a chance to look over the index of these countdown posts, you may have noticed that I have been trying to group various posts within some kind of subtitle of sorts: Becoming ImmortalG.O One ShotSinging Benét, etc. I have also included a subtitled group called The Heavenly Collaboration. It is in that group that I must place G.O’s Wild collaboration with Mir.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 113

The pain hasn’t really subsided. June is a month of memories for me this year. Just a few days ago, I was remembering Omiya and MBLAQ’s first stage as a trio. Today, I am remembering the release of MBLAQ’s 8th mini album, Mirror.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 103

I guess you can call me sentimental. Two years ago today I experienced my very first MWave online meet and greet with MBLAQ. I was working long hours in New Orleans that week for my job, and did not think I would be able to stay awake long enough to watch the show. Scheduled at a decent 2:00 PM KST hour, that translated to midnight my time. But the moment I saw G.O with his hair freshly sheared, goatee-d in a fedora wearing a t-shirt with the goddess Venus de Milo on the front of it (a definite shout out to his goddesses), I was wide awake and ready to watch the fun begin.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 85

G.O and Mir. It had to be fate, destiny or written somewhere that these two gentle spirits were going to cross paths and become one very powerful rap-vocal OST duo. They released two songs in 2012 and one in 2013 for three different original soundtracks. I think they are due for another one, don’t you ~ well, once G.O completes his service. For Day 85, I want to revisit my fave of the OST work exclusive to G.O and Mir, 천국이니까 [Because It’s Heaven/Winter Rain] from the Korean drama, The King of Dramas.

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!!
