We’re super excited about the first Kpop concert of the year. Boys Republic (소년공화국) debuted in June 2013 with the upbeat and catchy track Party Rock. Since then, Boys Republic has released two albums which showcased the many personalities and styles of the band, from playful and fun to brooding bad boys to their recent more mature and suave style.
Boys Republic have five members (thank you Wiki):
Onejunn (Jo Wonjun 조원준) is the group’s leader and main vocalist.
Sunwoo (Choi Sunwoo 최선우) is the lead vocalist.
Park Sungjun (박성준) is the main dancer and lead rapper.
Kim Minsu (김민수) is the lead dancer and main rapper
Lee Suwoong (이수웅) is the group’s visual, lead vocalist and lead dancer.
And their official fan club name is Royal Family. How very fitting after the birth of Princess Charlotte :P Fun Fact: One of the members speaks pretty good English and presented the 2013 International Kpop Cover Dance Competition in Gyeongju!
L-R: Sunwoo, Suwoong, Sungjun, Minsu, Onejunn
