Royal Pirates’ Moon becomes the latest in a long line of idols to cover Adam Levine’s “Lost Stars”, an OST from the movie Begin Again.
It seems as if the the trend is still going, as Royal Pirates’ lead singer Moon performed his rendition of the song on SimSimTaPa, a Korean radio program on MBC and hosted by rock singer Jung Joon Young. The vocalist displayed his talents by performing an acoustic cover of the song live on the October 22nd broadcast of the radio show. MBC shared a “Visible Radio” recording of the cover on its YouTube channel shortly after the episode had aired.
Among Korean singers, covering “Lost Stars” has become as much of a fad as the Harlem Shake or the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was on the internet and has been done by a long list of artists, including the likes of JuNCurryAhn, Project SH, StimMarvel, Cho Hyung Woo, Yoonhan, Juniel, Kwak Dongyeon, SPICA.S, Lee Hyung Wook, LUNAFLY, Gummy, Lee Sejun, and most recently, Han Dong Geun.
In other news, Royal Pirates made a comeback in August with their second mini-album Album, Love Toxic.
