I am still trying to collect myself and stay calm because the moment I read it, I knew I would be going back to Seoul. The thought of seeing G.O performing in music theater just sent my fangirl meter into overdrive. I love the man’s voice. I love the man’s presence. I love music theater. This is a no brainer for me. ^.^
