A trailer for the upcoming new season of SNH48/SNHG's regular variety show, in which you can get a feel of its content:


[EDIT 1]
A couple of members of SNH48's 1st team, including the team's "sexy queen" (the one in a yellowish dress), walking the red carpet of a fashion event tonight:


The veteran 1st-generation members are a also a long well-known couple in the group/team. :)

[EDIT 2]
A pretty cool promotion video for an upcoming special theater performance of CKG48: :cool:

A surprising & moving appearance of the current, newly promoted captain of SNH48's 2nd team (in black casual wear) at the birthday special theater performance of GNZ48's 2nd team for a prominent member of the team today (GNZ48 is based in the capital of the Cantonese captain's native province - she took the bullet train to arrive there from Shanghai, the home city of SNH48 ) - despite her present status as the leader of the most powerful team of SNH48, the mild-mannered 2nd-generation member of the group, who's long been known for her being very kind to & able to get along w/ younger-generation/newbie members, hasn't forgotten that GNZ48 member, who's also a fellow Cantonese & a former 6th-generation member of SNH48:


^ That captain & the birthday member are rendering a song written by the former herself, who's majoring in vocal rendition & music education - you can readily tell who's the better singer. XD

I seldom mention about the merchandise of the SNHG groups here, even tho there're tons of them, in a huge variety, but these mugs of SHY48, featuring caricatures of the group members, look so cute =^_^= - note that no special visual effects are applied on the mugs in this promotion video, as the caricatures are made to appear only at the right temperature: lol

^ BTW, the one donning an overall is their group ace. :)

A preview of the upcoming 2nd episode, released today:


^ Note that this new season is, quite suitably, hosted by the "big brother" of SNH48's 2nd team, who's pretty good in hosting shows/events & can command the respect, if not fear, XD from other members. :cool:

A self-explanatory poster posted by them today:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006ved5pgy1fq7bxcw5m4j30zk1hckbx.jpg

It's taken them so long, but it's finally happening. :mischief:

BTW, it's quite possible that "Team SH" ("SH" stands for Shanghai, where they're based) would perform along w/ all the AKBG groups around Japan & Asia at the opening of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. :)

[EDIT]
Some classy pics of a prominent 5th-generation member in SNH48's 3rd team, who doubles as a member of their subgroup COLOR GIRLS, posted by her today:

The charismatic girl is actually much younger than her looks & styles. :)

A 2nd-team member of SHY48 performing a classical Chinese dance at the cafe inside their exclusive theater lately:

[EDIT]
An MV for a solo version of the title number of the current stage of GNZ48's 1st team, rendered by a prominent member of their 2nd team, who doubles as a member of CKG48's 1st team & is featured in the MV:


The MV was shown for the 1st time at a theater performance of CKG48 just lately.

And a brief but funny behind-the-scenes footage of the MV: lol

The fanclub of the group ace of SHY48, which's based in the capital of a northeastern province bordering N. Korea, has bought ad spaces at a subway station in Shanghai, where SNH48 is based, for her birthday: :oh my:

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly1fqb2e5r17aj33402c0npd.jpg

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly1fqb2e6sg0nj33402c0hdt.jpg

Is that meant to be a show of challenge to the oldest SNHG group? :P

[EDIT]
An awesome Chinese dance performance by the group ace of GNZ48 at her team's theater performance today: :cool:

I haven't linked the preview of the 3rd episode this week, but am linking the whole thing below instead, since it's relatively shorter (just over 20 mins., due to a large section of it having been cut to keep it w/i 30 mins.) & is pretty fun to watch (even if you don't speak the language - as most of it is quite self-explanatory):


^ I'd call it an "animal episode" - "animal" refers to both the cute ones & otherwise. XD

The MV for a song on the current latest EP of 7SENSES, an elite subgroup of SNH48, shot in Saipan earlier & released today:


^ So many product placements. lol

[EDIT]
A promotion video for an upcoming mini live of the captain of SNH48's 1st team at the cafe inside their exclusive theater, in which you can see her rendering a famous Beatles song:

http://p.weibo.com/show/channerWbH5/1034:8fcef47ce19baa4120b2b17c3bf6133d

The English & German speaking holder of a laws degree (LLB) is also the de facto General Director of the entire group & the spokesperson-member of their elite subgroup 7SENSES (the subgroup doesn't have a captain or leader, as all its seven members are considered as equals w/i it), & is one of the group members w/ a driver license - you can see her driving in the MV linked above. :)
