5 Reasons Why You Can't Miss Royal Pirates in Bangkok

D-6! Only 6 days left until Royal Pirates grace Bangkok with their talent. It has been a long wait for Thai fans and we can feel the excitement flowing!
Do you have your tickets ready? Yes? Good, see you there. Not yet? No worries, there's plenty of time left. But if you are not yet sold that you should see this show, let me give you 5 reasons why it's a mistake to miss this one.

1. It is a full-length showcase.  I'd like to say this is more than just a showcase, but a concert. Not a measly 30-minute performance, but 2 hours of rock goodness from a band hailed as a Super Rookie by none other than Korea's rock legend Cho Yong Pil.  Expect them to play their hit songs from Shout Out to Love Toxic, as well as their rendition of well known songs, possibly, even one or two that they did from their Youtube era. (Hint: Circus?) 

2. These boys are talented, and best seen LIVE. Sure you've seen them in Music Core and Inkigayo, you've watched fancams, but nothing is far more gratifying than hearing them work their guitar riffs, drum solos and and hear Moon's melting voice live. You can't possibly get that euphoria of re-living the moments just from watching  fancams from Youtube. Jump, scream and sing along all you want, no one will judge. :)

3. Communication is no problemo. Raised in the US, all three boys are fluent in English. If you're worrying you won't understand a word they say, that's not going to happen. We know, and you know how hard it is to watch something and pretend you understand. If you've been to other KPOP concerts, that's mostly the case, unless they have an English speaker in the group.

Watch them banter in English here: 

4. See the boys up-close and personal. If watching the concert is not enough, the organizers have prepared activities for the fans to be able to interact with the boys. There will be fan-signing and photo sessions, and fan-led activities for the attendees to enjoy. Official Royal Pirates merchandise will also be available at the venue, so make sure to bring some extra cash. :)

See below schedule for the day, so you don't miss anything.

10:00 - 11:30:  Ticket Booth open to claim for Pre-Sale and Promotional ticket, including booth of selling Official Merchandise and CD.

11:30:  Lining for photo session and fan sign event.

12:30:  Photo session and fan sign event begins.

13:00:  Lining for “Royal Pirates 'Love Toxic' Showcase in Bangkok”  Regular price ticket claiming

13:30:  Door Opens (Regular price ticket)

14:00 - 16:00:  Show Time

5.    Meet new friends and have a blast. If you are going alone, don't fret, Royal Pirates fans, Royal Treasures are friendly! You may be going in alone but it surely won't be the case after. With the activities lined up for fans, you'll meet at least one good soul to talk to and enjoy the concert with. Wear a smile and strike up a conversation; who knows, the person next to you may just be your new best friend .

If these reasons aren't enough, I hope this photo will be the deal breaker. :P

Tickets are still available at ThaiticketMajor and also on the event day as well. See you there!

ROYAL PIRATES Nominated The Leaders of Japan, China and South Korea in The Ice Bucket Challenge

‘A Prayer for Peace in Northeast Asia’

TVREPORT | 2014, August 21st

The three members of South Korea’s rock band, Royal Pirates, participated in the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ and appointed the leaders of three countries, Japan, China and South Korea

Midnight on the 21st, a member of Royal Pirates, James who was nominated by a singer, Eric Nam, posted a video of them bathing in ice water for ALS (Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis) patients through the official YouTube channel along with this description "After finishing the preformance at Club Citta ofJapan, Royal Pirates were doing the ice bucket challenge!"

The ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ is a charity campaign which was started in order to raise awareness of ALS (Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis). After having the ice water on the participants from their head, apparently the three members were invited to take a part in the campaign. The rule was having the ice water within 24 hours or donating $100 (about 10,000 yen) to ALS support groups.

This time, in the published video, Royal Pirates, in front of the audiences, named Park Geun Hye (Prak Kune), President of Korea, Xi Jinping of China, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan to be the next participants for the unity of the three countries in Asia.

Royal Pirates explained why they nominated the leaders of the three countries in English, "Aside from the peace and unity of Northeast Asia, we're also hoping that all of the people can live together in harmony. The participation of celebrities makes the champaign known by people. In order to spread about this event, we chose the best suited three people."

Then, Royal Pirates lifted the bucket of ice water over their heads and cleared the mission to bath in ice water. Particularly James, he even poured the remaining water in the ice box over his body. This earnest participation in the champaign received enthusiastic support from the fans in the site.

This case, nominating a leader of a country as the next participant, has happened before. Justin Bieber and a NBA player, LeBron James, nominated President Obama of US while actor Vin Diesel, nominated the first lady, Michelle Obama, and President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

Park Sun'iru, former coach of a professional basketball player, Ulsan MOVIS, serves as a representative of 'Hope Sun'iru Foundation' which was established for ALS patients in Korea. The donation is expected to be used for the establishment of Korea ALS Care Hospital. Many participants' situation, even though they've bathed in ice water, they've practiced donations as well.

In overseas, celebrities in every area and on every level have participated, such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Zhang Ziyi, Justin Bieber, and soccer player David Beckham. In Korea, SEAN, Yoo Jaesuk, Yang Dong Geun, Jo Insung, and Choi Minsik have participated. With Royal Pirates nominated the three leaders, Kwanghee from ZE:A nominated Mayor of Seoul, Park Wonsun, 'Ice Bucket Challenge' has attracted greater interest.

Royal Pirates has cleared the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, but also donated $100 (about 10,000 yen) each to the ‘Hope Sun'iru Foundation’ under the name of each member.

Royal Pirates take on the Ice Bucket Challenge

Tagged by Eric Nam yesterday, James, together with Moon and Sooyon took on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today, right after their photo session of their second show at Club Citta. You can see James and Moon testing out the water and jumping because of the coldness. They've also spoke about peace in Asia and tagged Korea and China President and Japan's Prime Minister.

While the Moon and Sooyoon got buckets, James decided to step it up and use the ice chest filled with cold water. After dumping cold water on themselves, the boys proceeded to throw water at each other, earning laughter from the fans watching. Watch the fun clip below.

Sooyoon even posted an Instaram photo of the challenge.
