Who is your Royal Pirates bias?

Who is your Royal Pirates bias? Do you know more facts about them? Feel free to comment below. 🙂

  • Moon Kim <3

  • Qi Xiayun

    Moon Kim had a brother named Richard Kim (who use to be in the band since 2004-2008) but passed away due to a car accident in April 12, 2008. Followed by his two friends David Chung and Daniel Kim.

  • Qi Xiayun

    After his death, the rest of the members changed their band name from Fading from Dawn (this was their former name btw) to Royal Pirates.

  • Breelynne Kark

    The accident James had was not a car accident. It was glass or some sort of frame collapsing on his as he entered a restaurant to meet a friend for their birthday.

  • xkitohuff

    Their fandom name is Royal Treasures.

  • BrokenGoddess

    Royal Pirates started off with more members on of them being FYKE’s Enik, however he left the band later on. Most media say he wasn’t a full time member and only helped them work on songs but you can find him in some MVs. He also said himself that he was a member, you can confirm that on his instagram Q&A. He should at least be added to the former members T-T … Or just call him a temporary member.
