I have to be honest. I am finding it increasingly difficult to calm my excitement and focus now that we are less than 100 days from discharge, especially after G.O’s recent chat with his G.Oddesses on 7 November. So many thoughts and emotions are crowding my brain, and my heart. Sometimes it is overwhelming. I find myself wondering about G.O’s future. And as much as I have been enjoying these past 639 days reminiscing, I am very ready for the next movement in the concerto of G.O’s life and career. Celebrating him each day has been the highlight of my last (almost) two years and will only be bested by the opportunity to be able to experience all of the new and exciting music, events and activities yet to come. But as we still have some time, I will pull the proverbial reins in on myself, and steer this countdown carriage back to 11 October 2013 for some focused Smoky Girl cam of the ever debonair and disarmingly handsome G.O during MBLAQ’s performance at the IEF Seongnam International Game Festival Opening Ceremony.
There was a reason MBLAQ titled their fifth mini album Sexy Beat. When you look at all of the visuals that exploded from print to video, to live stage performances throughout promotion and beyond, everything about that album (and era) oozed sexy. The men were maturing and settling into their masculinity and with Sexy Beat, it showed. For the G.O One Shot today, I take a shot from the Sexy Beat era offered in .gif form.
I knew at some point in this countdown series that I would get a chance to completely love on one of my favorite performances of MBLAQ’s Smoky Girl . . . ever. The 26 June 2013 MBC Music Picnic Live performance was probably about as sultry and steamy as that summer day (it reach 86°F/30°C…I checked) itself. Once again a group effort back by a live band, there were still some delicious G.O standout moments nevertheless which give me rise to place the Picnic Live performance of Smoky Girl securely in the Vocal Virtuosity category. It is Day 410 and perhaps a bit sinful to get this steamy for Sunday, but I cannot help myself. And really, the steam comes early and cools off into an energetic and fun upbeat version of this killer song.~.^
Reason 7 – Nifty Shades of Byung Hee
As he takes the hoodie wear to a level of its own (his own), so too does Byung Hee make a statement with the sunglasses he wears often choosing a particular shape and style to suit the moment (or not), and always making them look good regardless of the occasion. His fine facial features serve him well affording him the ability to wear any shape, size or color. And although he may choose to wear them to help establish a sense of anonymity, I like to think he wears them to simply increase his already existing and overflowing cool quotient.^^ It seems to add some extra special swag to his persona when he does decide to rock the decorative shaded eyewear and gives me yet another reason to love him like I do.
