Do any of you remember the group, MBLAQ? The group debuted in 9 years ago in 2009, debuting under the J Tune Camp. The company, a subsidiary of J.Tune Entertainment was founded by the notable, Bi Rain. However, the company since then has dissolved. G.O is the main vocalist of the group. He currently is 1 of the 3 remaining members of the group, after 2 members left.

The group is best known for its hit releases such as Smoky Girl, Mona Lisa, Cry and Stay. They have successfully won a number of awards from 2010-2013. One of their most successful title tracks is This is War. The track placed first for 2 consecutive weeks on M! Countdown in 2012. The track is a melodramatic yet powerful track, with its very own plotline in the MV. Check it out below:

Additionally, in 2011, G.O released his first solo track known as Even In My Dreams. The track features his fellow co-member, Mir. Following the release, the track earned many headlines due to it being personally written and composed by G.O himself. Unfortunately, the track was not promoted on music programs due to the matter of fact MBLAQ was preparing for their comeback at the time. By 2013, he released his second solo track, Play That Track, produced by the renowned pianist, Yiruma along with 2FACE. Below is a snippet of the track.

However, in December 2014, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon and Thunder left the group. This led to MBLAQ returning as a 3-member group, releasing their title track, Mirror in June 2015. Unfortunately, the remainder of the group faced criticism of the media particularly after the 2 members’ departure. Mirror is a song about a lover who betrayed them and left.

In 2016, G.O entered the military. Following his release from military service, G.O debuted as a professional online streamer. He has ventured onto the Korean streaming platform, Afreeca TV to host his streams.
