The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 489

In his recent chat session back on 11 June at MBLAQ’s Daum Cafe, G.O mentioned, “It’s normally the people who have a good sense of fashion that wear black clothes; But I’m wearing them only because I’m bad at choosing clothes.” When I read that my first thought was, he’s not serious, is he?! I found it quite amusing that he said he was not good at choosing clothes to wear when I have been recently gushing over his airport style (and style in general) and the fact that he has incredible fashion sense, always looks very well put together and basically is good at choosing clothes! This would include my choice for today when MBLAQ was en route to Chile for a Music Bank performance back in November 2012.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 117

The western A+ who have the least cause to complain about getting the lovable men of MBLAQ on their soil are the Latin A+, specifically Mexico and South America.

[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.
