Ahoy mateys! Welcome to the official thread dedicated to the K-Pop group/ Korean-American rock band Royal Pirates.



The band’s name Royal Pirates is a good explanation of what the band is aiming for. The combined meaning of the words “Royal” and “Pirate” is extremely contradictory and this contrast between the two words reflects the band’s identity.

Royal Pirates is following the royal lineage of rock bands and racing towards becoming a legendary rock band in our time. And on this voyage, Royal Pirates, not trapped by any frame of mind, can freely make music that transcends time and space.

This is the future that we dream of.

The group rose to popularity due to their covers of several K-Pop songs such as Wonder Girls’ viral hit song "Nobody," DBSK’s "Mirotic," Super Junior’s "Sorry Sorry," etc. But their first cover in YouTube dates back to September 9, 2008 with Muse's “Time is Running Out.”

During 2009, they signed a contract under Apple of the Eye entertainment and on August 25, 2013, debuted with their song Shout Out. And just last January 14, 2014, they had their comeback stage at SBS MTV THE SHOW and released the next day, January 15, their latest album Drawing The Line.

Now, let's get to know each member! ^^

These are posters I made for a Royal Pirates fan group I manage in my country.
Hope you'll like them! ^^







LOL. It's just that James looks like Chopper of One Piece to me, that's why he's worth that much. I just followed the official One Piece poster. For those who are James-biased, don't blame me please. This is just for fun. :nervous:

Hi! If you're still on the process of getting to know Royal Pirates, don't worry 'coz it will really be worth your time. ^^
I'm guessing that the song you've heard is 'Drawing The Line,' or is it not? I just assumed because it's their carrier song in their latest album.
But I'm glad you liked the RP song you've listened to. Oh, and Moonchul's my bias as well! Cheers! :lol:

If I can recommend something for you to watch, try the episode where Royal Pirates guested in Arirang After School Club. You'll probably get a glimpse of how the group actually is. ^^

Here's a link to the video:


Enjoy! ^^

LOL. :lol:
I know right. There are a lot of other photos where Moon definitely looks hot. <3 It's just that I took their photos as posted in the Royal Pirates official site (Profile Section). But even if he looks sick in the one posted, all that matters is that we know how gorgeous he is. ^^

And I'm really happy that you love RP 'coz they do not have that much fan yet as compared to other groups.
Oh well, here are some photos of Moon to compensate for the 'sick-looking Moon' photo. LOL.

LOL. Never ask me what my favorite song is for any group, because I can NEVER pick one (or two, or three..)!
It's impossible. I love all of them! <3
But See What I See and You are the most played on my ipod with 51 plays. :D

OMG. I love their song 'You' so much! <3 But yeah, that's actually true. If you really like a group, you can't actually force yourself to choose one song to be your favorite when you love every song they release. ^^ It's a matter of what is mostly played on your list. LOL. :lol:

But I really hope to get to see Royal Pirates in person... T.T

The closest I can do is choose my favorite song at the moment, which is Drawing The Line xD

I wanna see them in person too!! I hope they'd go on a tour some time soon.. But with such an amount of fans.. T.T
