Every time I write about G.O, it is an exercise in celebrating his talent and beauty. His talent is a given and I will never tire of writing or talking about it. When I write about his beauty however, (most of the time) I am usually referring to something that is far deeper than what the eye can see. That is not to say that G.O is lacking whatsoever in the looks department. Far from it, actually. I think he is the most handsome man on the planet. That is a bold statement, I know. But I happen to believe it. So I am going to go to the shallow end of the fangirl pool today to get lost in G.O’s beauty. You know, to just sigh at some of the handsome captured over the years.
Today, I am opting for a soft and demure, yet arguably strong and sexy One Shot. One that can be easily be categorized as romantic yet brims with raw unadulterated sensuality. You know, the kind that confirms that quintessential yin and yang G.O unequivocally possesses and quietly owns.
Even if G.O believes that he cannot choose clothes, it is pretty safe to say that clothes can choose him and choose him well. Whatever he wears – be it of his own choice or the choice of a stylist or costume director, those finely woven pieces of fabric will invariably look balanced, comfortable, classy and fashionable. I have said it very often because it is true, clothes wear G.O very well. I would like to remind him (and all) of just that with my One Shot .gif today. Yes, today I want to revisit how he lit up the runway helping out designer Park Jong Chul during Seoul Fashion week in the autumn of 2012.
Things on my side of the world have been a little off and weird as of late due to our present political climate so I am grateful to have my little escape passage here on the blog in this countdown series. Every time I sit down to write about G.O it feels good. Even when I have to write about his interpretation of a particularly heartbreaking song or a devastatingly emotional moment from the musical stage, I always end up happy to have shined some light on his indomitable talent. Although everything about him makes me smile, his playful fan sign moments are special kinds of treasures. Today I share one from the Sexy Beat fan sign in Masan back on 20 July 2013.
Way back on Day 245, I talked about the wonderful spring G.O was enjoying in 2014. With two critically acclaimed musicals and a comeback with MBLAQ, he was riding high and seeing quite a bit of press coverage which included landing on the cover of a couple of magazines. Pretty cool! Day 245 was a G.O One Shot day (like today). At that time, I shared a couple of beautiful shots from Campus Job & Joy and said I would not crowd that one shot post with all of the pictures contained in the article as each deserved its own moment to shine. Today is another One Shot day where I will let another moment from that May 2014 issue of Campus Job & Joy charm you.
It’s Thursday in Seoul so why not a little throwback moment? Looking back on this November 2009 Elle Girl photo shoot and magazine spread, I cannot help but feel the early excitement the men of MBLAQ were experiencing as full on promotions really began to unfold following their debut.Continue reading →
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!!
I know I incessantly lament (more like whine) over the fact that I discovered MBLAQ later than most in their fandom. There is something truly special and exciting about experiencing the moment a song is released, catching a real-time red carpet appearance, or even seeing the first photo or video of a photo shoot. The upside is that somewhere most of these past events have been safely secured on the internet. Bless!!
We have reached the two month mark of G.O’s military service. Yay!!! That came rather quickly if I do say so myself! I wonder how time is moving for him….hmmmm? To celebrate the 60th day of his service, I am going to look back at G.O’s moment on the fashion runway for designer Park Jong Chul at the 2013 Sling Stone Men’s Wear Show where the gorgeous was almost too much to endure!
June 2013. My emotions teeter from being grateful I was in the dark about MBLAQ at that time, to completely agonizing over why I came to the party late and, hence, missed the Sexy Beat era!! I am comforted in accepting that there is a time and reason for everything and that I fell down the MBLAQ rabbit hole at precisely the moment chosen for me to do so. Still, had I been there in June 2013, I would have had the pleasure of having my senses repeatedly annihilated by G.O, his penetrating gaze, and sensual Sexy Beat style.
