The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 520

I really thought that I would settle into a fan meet/fan sign fan cam for today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment. That was my plan any way. But whenever I come across a cam of G.O singing, the choice is automatically made for me! This happened today when I came across a cam of G.O performing his second digital single, Play That Song during the Seoul Sensation Tour in November 2013. Usually come Friday, I am cranked up for the weekend. Not today. No, today, I want to ease into Friday with grace and romance. Is there any better way to do that than with G.O’s velvety voice?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 116

Today I asked myself: Do you think there are some pictures of G.O out there that you don’t like? I pondered for a moment and thought, impossible! I love them all! True, I will favor some over others.

[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.
