The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 443

Can there be anything more romantic than the tender gaze of G.O’s eyes during a gentle ballad? Remember when he joined HaHa and Taw on The Show and laced his velvet vocals around their 내 품이 좋다던 사람 [The Person By My Side?] I wrote about it back on Day 177, which seems like ages ago now that we are at the mid-400 days mark. I remember how angelic G.O looked and sounded during that performance. I came across a short fan cam taken during the recording of that segment back on 20 March 2012 and share it as today’s Fan-Camming Friday moment.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 306

I was thinking about Broken promotions today and how clueless I was at that time to have made the most of being in Seoul when MBLAQ released their 6th mini album. I mean, I could have gone to so many of the promotions if I only knew how to go about it at that time. I was just stepping into the fandom then and the only thing on my mind was G.O. Although MBLAQ had released their Japanese single, Still In Love just prior to Broken, I was still somewhat out of the loop and the thought of trying to get to any promotions did not really cross my mind. Despite my own ineptitude, I don’t look back on that trip to Seoul as a failure. On the contrary. It was my MBLAQ awakening, as it were, and the very moment I met and came face-to-face with my one true bias. On 8 April 2014 I would see G.O perform for the first time in Seopyeonje, however earlier that day he and MBLAQ were at the SBS studios getting their 남자답게 [Be A Man] groove on for The Show, which resulted in a fabulous G.O- focused cam.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 177

Do you feel like escaping with me today to a sweet spot in a song? Yes sometimes a few short lines in one song have the power to transport and soothe. Of course, the relaxant effect of a song is compounded when the lyrics are being masterfully delivered in a mellifluous melody by a vocalist who understands that of the many elements that comprise a song, it is a vocalist’s honest connect with the thought, meaning and emotion of that song that will indeed capture and move an audience. I believe G.O understands this concept to his core, and why his short interlude between the sharp rap attack in Taw and HaHa’s 내 품이 좋다던사람 [The Person By My Side] reminds us that underneath the hurt and pain of a break up, the heart has a resilience that always seems to be able to weather the storms of love.
