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.
