The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 707

aavZRO

I came across a .gif today that I wanted to share on this 707th day of G.O’s service since it is a G.O One Shot day and discovered that there were many nice photographic captures from the same event. You all know how I like to break my own rules when that happens. So a little bit of movement and a whole lot of G.O intensity from the Seoul Drama Awards on 30 August 2012 coming at you.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 701

aavZRO

Each one of us has our own way to navigate and express emotion. Some are screamers while others are silent. Some are weepy while others are stoic. Then there are the lucky ones who are able to express emotion through art. I do not know where G.O would fall on the spectrum were he not an artist. But I do think he most readily has used music to reveal the emotions of his heart be they emotions that have expressed happiness or those that have been wrought with heartbreak.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 490

When it comes to the sixth letter of the alphabet, my mind becomes inundated with a myriad of words all of which are fitting in describing the fantastic G.O. Lately, with all of his updates and specifically his recent chat session, he has been fanning the fire in my heart, igniting a fierce impatience for his return as we attempt to navigate the final 241 days of his service. My theme for this post is about fire. The fire he brings to the stage that is undoubtedly born from the artistic fires that burn inside his creative soul. Today, is for Fiery.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 467

The sophistication of the Broken era will never lose its luster for me. The suits. The maturity. The elegance. The poise. The evolution of the music. All of it. Today, a G.O One Shot in .gif form. A moment taken from one of the late autumn 2014 stages.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 433

Preparing for a comeback is hard work. Likewise, preparing for the raw intensity of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] had to have been even more demanding. I suppose having the mischievous G.O in the practice room on those taxing days brought some relief to the hardworking men of MBLAQ. And indeed a few laughs. The behind the scenes moments captured in the practice room during the The Making of War Story DVD provided yet another look at the ever playfulness that infects G.O, even during those long and grueling hours of practice and preparation.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 419

Ok, I think I am back on schedule with the G.O One Shots. I decided that with just a little over 300 days left (312, to be exact), I am going to be less stringent with some of the parameters I have set for myself here on the Countdown. Much like our serene music man, I am going to relax and let things effortlessly flow. Today’s flow is all about the 14 January 2012 Music Core performance of the powerful 전쟁이야 [This Is War]. I cannot help but turn this one shot .gif day into a multi-shot .gif day. See, I am happily stepping outside of the One Shot boundaries, it and feels good.~^^

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 381

Inasmuch as MBLAQ’s 12 February 2012 Inkigayo performance of 전쟁이야 [This Is War] was in fact a good-bye stage and the song serious and intense, it still did not deter G.O from some playful stage antics in any event. It is a well-established fact that I find G.O’s quiet and simmering sex appeal outrageously attractive. What makes him even more disarming is the fact that his brand of sexy is twofold. Yes, it’s true. Whether he is caught up in the passionate emotion of a song or in the throes of complete mischief, the man is the very definition of attractive and sexy. For today, I am choosing a Playful G.O moment that confirms that even at his mischievous and playful best, G.O is simply irresistible.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 234

It seems abundantly clear to me that G.O indeed got the memo to bring every ounce of beautiful with him to perform at the 17 January 2012 MBC Beautiful Concert. In fact, it is almost too much beautiful to endure. It is Day 234 of G.O’s service and it seems as good a time as any to bring a beautiful pictures and fan-camming moment to the blog. Come…let’s immerse.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 170

For Day 170 of G.O’s military service I am going to focus on the windows of his soul and ask, if your MBLAQ bias held eye contact with you (and/or your camera) for the bulk of 전쟁이야 [This Is War], do you think you would walk away from the experience feeling somewhat changed? Undone perhaps?

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 148

I have stayed pretty distant from all things This Is War during the Countdown series because it is one of MBLAQ’s most iconic songs and one that is so intensely visceral that I quite honestly find it difficult to adequately write and talk about. The era alone in how they approached performing the song and the powerful visuals all five members displayed, from costuming to choreography, make This Is War an epic work of art.
