An awesome set of pics featuring a popular 9th-generation member in SNH48's new 5th team posing as an ancient woman, released by herself on her birthday today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/00762PWGgy1fv7rm5k252j30zta1ke82.jpg

Known for her unusually long given name comprising four kanji characters instead of the usual one or two, the talented young girl, who's fluent in playing both the violin & the guitar, has just turned 17 today. She's also grown up in a cultural environment of classical Chinese poems, hence her being radiant w/ a classical aurora & the classical, poetic style of writing in her blog entries rarely seen in youngsters of her age. :)

An official birthday poster for the birthday of a key member of SNH48's 3rd team today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1fvkw874p3tj20rs15o1kx.jpg

^ The 3rd-generation member is donning the team's current dress uniform.

The trilingual girl, who can also speak English & Korean, is known for her superb dancing skills & is also a member of their elite subgroup 7SENSES. She loves shooting & editing private videos featuring herself & her team/groupmates, & has got her bachelor's degree in media studies just recently. Having a positive, cheerful, & pretty nice personality, she's also known for her unusual double-kanji surname, which's a made-up one being a combo of her parents' single-kanji ones. Her given name is also unique & has got an intellectual feel. :)

The dedicated HP for SNHG's upcoming new EP opened today, showing its six versions, its various attached items, & a number of its separately-sold peripheral items, among others:

SNH48 第21张EP《魔女的诗篇》

[EDIT]
The MV made for the 4th anniversary of the 3rd team of SNH48, released today:

Sina Visitor System

The team actually has a number of talented members, but has long been overshadowed by the all-powerful 2nd team & then facing the pretty credible challenge from the younger, 1st-team-&-1st-generation-member-trained 4th team, making it "sandwiched" between those two teams. Adding to that structural disadvantage are the so many mishaps of & unhappy/unfortunate happenings to a number of its members over the years, as well as its loss of several prominent members, including even a team ace, for various reasons. It's also one of the biggest "victim" team in the large-scale reshuffle of the group earlier, tho this group restructuring has also beefed it up w/ several heavyweights parachuted from the 2nd team, one of whom has even "taken over" it by becoming its captain, which position had looong been vacant after the departure of its beloved founding captain.

Anyway, happy anniversary to the team & wish it every success in the future! :)

A moving, if not even tear jerking, quality MV-short of a former group ace & "face" of SNH48, who's now a solo artist under the same management company, w/ both Chinese & English subs, released today:


^ She's pretty good & well-suited in playing characters from the Republican Period. :cool:
