A micro documentary looking back at the many various memorable moments & milestones of Team SII, the 1st team of SNH48, in the past five years from the POV of a hypothetical fan, released today for celebrating the flagship team's 5th anniversary - it's also like a quick review of the history of the entire group & even SNHG:

[EDIT 1]
A vocal & drum performance of a popular J-pop number by a top SHY48 member from their 1st team at their theater performance today:


She's among the few members of the SNHG groups who can play the drums. :cool:

[EDIT 2]
The captain of SNH48's 1st team is featured on both of the double covers of the current latest issue of the Chinese edition of a mainstream Japanese fashion mag - an official report about it, released today:

A promotion video featuring the sexy ace of SNH48's 4th team showing off her specialty in Latin dancing, for a variety show:


Another one, featuring their former group ace, now a solo artist still under SNHG's management, showing off her specialties in posing as an ancient woman, dressing up in a qipao (a pretty modern one here), & rendering a traditional Chinese styled song (a theme of a recent historical drama starring her, playing in the background):

^ The "sexy queen" of the team sharing a hot gif on her blog just about an hour ago, from a number performed in the stage & featuring herself as the scientist (dressed in white) making love w/ the robot she created (played by the captain of the team), after the latter had come out from that glass container behind them:

Another gif, of an earlier scene from the same performance of that stage number, when she was seducing that robot still being kept inside that container:

The MV for a de facto team anthem of SNH48's 2nd team, released today - note that some familiar former members of the team are also featured (even prominently) in the MV, which was actually shot (long) after the group-wide organizational reshuffle earlier this year:

A special trailer of a recent popular historical drama starring a former group ace of SNH48 & featuring a number of members from the group, made for an upcoming annual drama awards event:

Sina Visitor System
That drama was given an award in that event tonight, in which that former group ace also received a personal award for her acting, & was even respectfully addressed by the hostess w/ the honorific meaning "teacher" (for her being the chief adjudicator in a latest talent show) - her appearing on the red carpet of the event:

A trailer of an upcoming drama w/ its story theme related to both Western & Chinese classical music, starring a former deputy captain of SNH48's 2nd team (currently ranked #2), featuring a number of other prominent members from the group & the group ace of GNZ48, & produced by SNHG's own production house:

^ A couple of offshots of that former group ace from another variety show aired tonight:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006VxdWHly1fxzdy8agy5j31oh2io4qv.jpg

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/dab20f8dgy1fxz81aqmt1j21of2iob2d.jpg

^ I like the executive look of her outfit, :cool: even tho she's actually still wearing a color-matching miniskirt lol (not shown in the pics), hence still retaining some of her "shojo" feel - she's maturing fast these days, & even her official blogger has also started referring to her w/ the honorific meaning "teacher" lately.

[EDIT]
Footage of her performing w/ another artist on that show tonight:

《国风美少年》【纯享】SNH48宋昕冉 宋芳园《木兰》

^ Note that the chief adjudicator sitting at the center of the panel facing the stage is their former group ace, now a renowned solo artist. :)
In the former, main part of this short footage from the show, you can see that former group ace, as the chief adjudicator, grilling that team ace for that performance - it's a bit cruel even tho the harsh criticism is well-intended, & both become tearful as a result: :(

《国风美少年》鞠婧祎点评宋昕冉 状态不佳还需继续奋进

^ As seen in the footage, the team ace is demoted to the "bronze" group because of that (her partner in the performance has already been in that group & hence is unaffected). Luckily, she's still not out yet & can still stage a comeback in the next episode. :)

A collection of kissing footage of SNH48 lol - the one at the end wins it all: XD
