On 1st May Royal Pirates held their 1st showcase in Malaysia, along with some extra activities, including visiting Mari Mari Culture Village and radio appearances (you can listen here), but let’s do it properly from the start.
1st one to post anything was Sooyoon, who went along new trend of how-old.net – webpage “counting” your age and determining wheter you are male or female basing on photo.
He sure knows how to look at positives!
Shortly after, James followed.
And (wow, so much unlike him) Moon posted sideways selca too. However without the age checker. Not satisfied with results? (looking at what fans posted afterwards on social media, in majority his result is around 30 y.o. women… Unni!)
Soon after they moved to the Mari Mari Cultural Village, where, with bunch of lucky fans who won Hotlink contest they explored local jungle. Check out the gallery below for some photos (taken from universalmusicmalaysia, Team RP, James’ and SY’s updates)
However absolute highlight wassss *drumrolls please* #SweatChul (he sure has unique way with hashtags). And trust admin, the amount of K.O.’s on my timeline was overhealming (no wonder)
You can also check out short vid of them playing with fans here.
And then came time for the showcase. They performed 5 songs total (some with linked fancams) – Shout Out/Seoul Hillbilly/Haru/Love Toxic/Drawing the line (Encore) and answered some fan questions (taken from dorkistic on twitter)
“Moon says the best gift he received are Star Wars merchandise as he’s a Star War fan.The worse gift they received is underwear”
“If they can switch body with a celeb, Moon wanna be Scarlet Johansson, SY wanna be JayZ and James wanna be Kobe Byrant.”
“Moon’s ideal girl is feminine, slightly long hair, smoothing voice and bright personality.”
“James ideal girl is a girl he can trust, and also a cute girl. Height doesn’t matter to him.”
“SY’s ideal girl is a girl that’s bright and outgoing, like a best friend.”
“The boys said if they’d fall for the same girl, they will solve it through rock, paper,scissors. They demonstrated & James won.” (now this is smart way to solve complicated matters! not…)
“SY said he wish he composed Betting Everything, which was originally composed by James. He said it was such a hit.”
” Moon say they love Malaysia food and James say he pretty much gained 3kg now being full with Malaysian food.”
“Ways to release stress: James – working out, Moon – driving around, Yoon – eating spicy food like toppoki.”
“When asked what inspired them to make music, Moon say it was like destiny, he just kinda knew music was his thing.”
“SY said love, life and experience inspire him to make music.”
“James says music is the only thing he could do aside eating or sleeping, which he can keep goin 24/7.”
They gathered huge audience too.
