A self-explanatory footage from a theater performance of SNH48's 3rd team lately:


The former member of their now-abolished old 5th team & current member of their subgroup COLOR GIRLS is considered as a candidate of their next-generation ace. She was recently spotted (w/ photos taken) walking intimately w/ a female fan near a hotel. Whether they really have a lesbian or even sexual relationship is anyone's guess, but private contacts w/ fans have always been prohibited by the group.

I hope the popular 5th-generation member can get over it in due course, since other than this incident she's in many various ways a pretty good idol. :)

She's always been pretty good in playing historical characters. :)
An MV for a song of that drama rendered by herself, featuring even more footage from the drama & released today:

7SENSES, an elite subgroup of SNH48, on the red carpet of the 2018 Shanghai International Film & TV Festival today:


A trailer of an upcoming drama starring a former group ace of SNH48 (now a solo artist under the same management company) as the title character:

《芸汐传》甜爽预告首发 鞠婧祎张哲瀚甜蜜撒糖

Some footage focusing on her in that drama:

She plays an ancient physician & toxicologist, whose father was the chief physician of the imperial court (such connection brought her into a storm of political conspiracies), in the saga. :)

Some awesome wedding dress pics of the group ace of GNZ48 released today, reposted on this page of a Japanese fansite on the same day (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

^ Looks like their wedding photos. XD Both are their current top two members, w/ the 2nd-team captain ranked #1 w/i the group, hence they're actually rivals in the current SNHG General Election, especially that the group ace from their 1st team has always wanna retake the #1 position. lol
