The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 479

In keeping with my look back at the release of Mirror, I offer a six-shot today in .gif form, because one is simply not enough. After the hiatus and reorganization of the group, seeing G.O during the Mirror promotions was like Christmas in June for this fangirl. I know that many view the song (Mirror) as a direct lament to Lee Joon and Cheondung for leaving the group and sure, as the song is about a break up, everyone can make their own conclusions. Nevertheless, the song in and of itself is exquisite. The tight vocals settle comfortably in a beautiful melody with piercing lyrics. Mir’s defiant rap is reminiscent of the dominating rap segments in Stay and This Is War. Mirror is a heart-breaking song that starts as a gentle snowfall and ultimately grows into an avalanche of emotion. And then there were the visuals . . .

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 383

It is difficult getting back into the groove and routine of my every day life since returning from Seoul. Keeping up with my countdown posts however seems to be flowing ok. At least one thing is staying consistent. For some reason (probably because I have the heart of a five-year old child), I am really looking forward to hitting Day 400. Milestones. You know how I feel about those.~^^ Even though there will be over 300 days remaining at that point, I still find myself full of excitement as we get closer to discharge. Likewise, every moment I get to sit down and write about this amazing young man makes me happy. Today (as you can see) is a One Shot day. It is also time for a one shot .gif. Lately, I have been longing for Mirror ~ the song, performances, just anything Mirror-related. To quench a little bit of that thirst, I will share a few short G.O .gifs from one of the many performances of MBLAQ’s exquisite and haunting title song.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 259

I recall feeling a rush of absolute excitement when the charmers of MBLAQ released the track list for their 8th mini album, Mirror, and there was a song penned by G.O entitled, I Know You Want Me. I could not even begin to wrap my brain (or emotions) around the fact that he wrote a song with a seemingly provocative title. And, he gave that song an English title. The anticipation of hearing a new G.O composition was overwhelming . . . I could hardly wait!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 233

There were countless numbers of pictures that were published of MBLAQ when they came back with their 8th mini album Mirror in June 2015. And as we were so ravenous to see them, it was fortunate that cameras were often in the vicinity every day during promotions. Apart from absolutely loving the music, I really appreciated the toned down sophisticated feel of Seung Ho, G.O and Mir’s visual presentation of their new material.  Wearing soft, muted tones of black, grey, white or blue, there was an elegance in the clean and comfortable lines of the clothes they wore, especially G.O.
