A trailer of an upcoming spy thriller movie set in the Republican Period, starring two prominent 1st-generation members in the 1st team of SNH48 (one of whom is the "sexy queen" of the team, & the other is one of the tallest members, if not the tallest, of the group), who play a lesbian couple reunited after many years of separation but then finding that they'd become enemies to each other, released yesterday w/ some modestly explicit scenes:


^ The song playing in the background is a famous stage number of AKB48/SNH48, also rendered by those two group members themselves & used as the theme of the movie, which Chinese title is the same as the song's Chinese title too. :)

The 2nd team of SNH48, the long-time dominant team of the group, performing a special version of a representative number of the team at their joint concert w/ the 2nd team of BEJ48 in a major northern port city tonight, as part of the SNHG's current nationwide tour:


^ The one playing the keyboard at the beginning is the team's current captain, who's also the top vocalist of the team & a composer/songwriter w/ a degree in music education. :)

^ An awesome performance. :cool:

An elegant & cool decoration set placed by the fanclub of the "big brother" of SNH48's 2nd team at the 1/F lobby of the group's exclusive theater for her birthday:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1g4222mibyuj21900u04qq.jpg

^ That wine-drinking woman in red depicted at the center of the set is supposed to be her, while the fan-holding one in blue her mirror self (who's played by a teammate on real-life stage).

Behind-the-scenes footage of her shootings for her birthday items, released today:

^ Ah, the song playing in the background is her solo version of a stage number of her team, which title means "imperfect."

Pls note that I won't post the links of all the election manifestos in the current SNHG General Election here, as there're about 200 candidates. Only a very small fraction of them have been & will be posted here. BTW, the preliminary results of the election have been announced tonight - as always, won't cover them here since they're not as meaningful as the interim & final results except to some (less popular) individual SNHG members.

The one of the captain of GNZ48's 2nd team, released today:

She's also produced an MV for her solo version of a famous stage number of SNHG, in which she plays both an ancient Chinese woman & an ancient Arabian woman (there're cultural exchanges between the ancient Chinese & Arabian worlds via their economic ties thru both the land & sea Silk Roads), directed by the deputy captain of the team, her long-time assistant in the management of the team:


^ The song's title means "One Thousand and One Nights." :)

The election manifesto of a prominent member of SNH48's 3rd team (formerly of their 2nd team) for the current SNHG General Election, released today:

http://n.miaopai.com/media/9Xh8R5nJ2~SfenNYJPE3D4mp2n59iv8~

Like a former ace of the group, she's pretty good both as an actress & a singer, & has also been professionally trained in acting at a prestigious university-level acting school, from which she's actually already graduated for many years despite her young, teenage look at present. lol

Behind-the-scenes footage of the current top-ranking 16 SNHG members shooting for promoting their current General Election:


^ The zero interaction between the #1- & #2-ranked members is so obvious *sigh* (their long-time bad relationship isn't due to their competing for the top rank nor power struggle, tho, but to their personal issues long before they've attained their present ranking & status).
