BTW, tomorrow is their 4th anniversary, & their newest sister group SHY48 will perform their debut stage at their exclusive theater on the same day, which's also the grand opening day of the theater. Also, a small commemorative concert of SNH48 will be held at their debut venue four years ago tomorrow, which won't be broadcast live like the "B50" one.

They've also produced this special MV for the anniversary, released today:


An offshot taken on the set of that MV:

^ Front (from left): the ace of their 3rd team, another prominent member of the same team, & a charismatic 1st-team member; back: the captain of their 2nd team.

It's notable that none of their 1st-generation members are featured on that MV, which's actually dedicated to them (there're group members of all the various other generations, except only for the current newest one, appearing on it). :)

A CM for a job finding site, featuring several prominent members from SNH48's 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 5th teams:



[EDIT]
^ Another, much shorter one:

SNH48 continues to collect awards at the beginning of the year - six of their top members (at the left of the stage) representing the group to receive another group-of-the-year award tonight:



^ Note that in this awards ceremony they're wearing gowns instead of their stage costumes or formal uniforms. :cool:

Also note that I haven't reported on all the awards they & their sister groups have received since the last year here.

[EDIT]
^ The six, all from either their 1st or 2nd team, on the red carpet of that event:

Some fanservice from the 2nd-generation, 2nd team nurse-member of SNH48 - yesterday she posted these pics shot w/ a 5th-generation, 5th-team member (donning the 5th team's stage uniform w/ that team's green theme-color, while the nurse is wearing the 2nd team's w/ that team's violet one) at the backstage (view the pics one-by-one from the top one):

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983ly1 ... 0zk0wc.jpg

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983ly1 ... 0zktcl.jpg

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983ly1 ... 0zkq6p.jpg

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983ly1 ... 0zk42d.jpg

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983ly1 ... 0pjjtm.jpg

The nurse drives to both her hospital & the group's various premises to work, & during her driving to the latter locations, she often picks up group members of newer generations for their free ride on her car. lol

^ That 5th-team member is actually the deputy captain of her team, hence being organizationally more senior than that nurse-member, but as a 5th-generation member, the former is still a relative newbie to the latter, who's 2nd-generation & hence already a veteran in the group. :)

[EDIT]
The annual Lunar Yearend staff party of SNH48 (it's not just for their various staff per se, but the group members are also broadly regarded as the "staff" of their company here) was held at a luxurious restaurant tonight. For the group members, what they're most interested in it are the various performances by their staff (here it's just the narrow, literal meaning of the word "staff") to entertain them, the grand lucky draw, & of course, the various certificates of merit awarded to them for their outstanding contributions on different areas in the past year - as well as the cash prizes inside the red pockets accompanying those certificates. XD

[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] To give you a feel of the party, here're a couple of pics shot by a GNZ48 member at the venue of the one held by her group tonight (note that they're actually forbidden to post such pics XD ) - it's much smaller in scale than the SNH48 one, of course, as the group is still relatively new & hence much smaller than SNH48 too, but that venue still looks classy: :cool:

A birthday poster for a 2nd-team member of GNZ48, in which she's donning their current formal uniform, w/ its red theme-color matching the upcoming Lunar New Year:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy1 ... 2pgqv6.jpg

[EDIT 1]
A trailer of a net fantasy-comedy movie starring a leading SNH48 member w/ several BEJ48 members as supporting cast, opening during the Lunar New Year period:



[EDIT 2]
The MV for the Lunar New Year single of GNZ48, which's sung in both Mandarin & Cantonese & recorded in their current latest 2nd EP, released today:



^ It was shot in various areas of their exclusive theater. :)

[EDIT 3]
A leaders' club (? lol ) - an interesting pic of four core members of SNH48's 2nd team, in their various stage costumes, playing cards at the backstage:

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/db1941cbly1 ... 1w0u13.jpg

^ From left: the team's captain, the "big brother" of the team, the deputy captain, & the former acting captain (who posted the pic today).

An offshot of a newbie member in the 2nd team of SNH48, from a historical drama in which she plays a commander:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006zA3RPly1 ... 2yohdx.jpg

^ The former flight attendant looks pretty cool in it. :cool:

[EDIT]
^ Ah, several other members of the group are also featured in the drama, some playing leading roles.

At a Lunar Yearend special theater performance of SNH48 today, a couple of Cantonese members from their 2nd team performed a Canto-pop classic (originally also a J-pop classic):



^ It's pretty obvious who's rendering it better, lol & they know it, hence that more difficult part of the song is handled by the better one, who's actually majoring in music (music education) w/ a specialization on vocal rendition (she's also a composer, lyricist, & pianist, tho).

It's also remarkable that they performed a Cantonese song in a place where the dialect isn't spoken. :cool:

[EDIT]
Meanwhile, at such performance of BEJ48 on the same day, a traditional Chinese dance & guzheng (a traditional Chinese string instrument) performance:

[Re: The former part of the preceding post] Here's the original Japanese version of that song by the original singer, an immensely popular J-pop idol back then, who's also the composer of the song:



^ I might (or mightn't? lol ) add it into the song-list post on that J-pop thread linked in my sig below, which I haven't updated for a pretty long while. lol

Another couple of pics, from the BEJ48 one held at a large hotel last night, posted by a group member today - it's got a somewhat better view of the scene, which probably explains the lack of her identity watermark at the bottom right corner of the pics: XD

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006pW9DJly1 ... 2c0x6p.jpg

^ A corner of the banquet hall - the words on the paper stand on the nearest table (partly seen at the bottom middle of the pic) means "group members," hence that table is for the group members.

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006pW9DJly1 ... 340x6p.jpg

^ The nearest menu on the table shows the 12 Lunar Yearend banquet courses served in the party.

BEJ48 was formed at the same time as GNZ48, hence the two groups are of about the same size, which's still much smaller than that of SNH48 at present. :)

While that pretty talented group member is already good on multiple fields in music, she still loves to post her sexy gravure pics from time to time, like these two she did today: lol

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/db153ac5gy1 ... 37kkjt.jpg

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/db153ac5gy1 ... 1x7u11.jpg

Frankly she's neither the prettiest nor having the hottest body figure in the group, but she just likes doing such shootings as a hobby. XD

On Lunar New Year's Day, SNH48/SNHG has looked back at their achievements in the past year in this graphical report posted just after the midnight of Lunar New Year's Eve:

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2117.html

^ As usual, I can't cover it in detail here - just a very brief description of the main sections in it:

(1) Their current five original stages performed at their exclusive theaters & a number of their original EPs released so far.
(2) Their current appearances on numerous Lunar Yearend & Lunar New Year shows of many mainstream TV stations around the country.
(3) Their receiving more than 20 major industry & media awards in the past year.
(4) Their having set up three sister groups in various core cities around the country, w/ totally over 280 members in all their current four groups at present.
(5) Their participation in various charity activities & public services, hence promoting social responsibilities in a civic society.

[EDIT]
A Lunar New Year's greeting by all the currently active/debuted members of SNHG in this group pic (wish it were bigger):

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1 ... 1hctzr.jpg

^ The four SNHG groups can be easily identified by their different current stage uniforms for the Lunar New Year - from top: BEJ48, SNH48 (the current largest group), GNZ48, & SHY48 (only their 1st team - their 2nd team hasn't debuted yet & they're still recruiting their 3rd-team members).

Some members of SNH48's 3rd team having a Lunar New Year's Eve meal at their canteen inside their training & living complex long after midnight (!) - hence it'd already been on Lunar New Year's Day, actually - after finishing their work today:

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006zwqaagy1 ... 1w0e81.jpg

^ The team's beloved deputy captain is the 3rd one from right, who's currently acting as the captain (her teammates have already been calling her captain, so she might've even been formally promoted now, but no official announcement has been made yet). Also, that chicken in the centerpiece dish is so eye-catching. lol

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006zwqaagy1 ... 2c0u0x.jpg

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006zwqaagy1 ... 2c04qq.jpg

^ The various dishes & food served there that night (or that very early morning lol ).

[EDIT]
^ Another, better pic of the dishes:

Lolicon pics of a prepubescent elementary school girl? :lol: Actually this immensely popular Cantonese member of SNH48's 2nd team (currently ranked #4 SNHG-wide), who's also the oldest member in the team, is already in her mid-20s, & is respectfully called the "teacher" by her teammates due to her tremendous life/social experiences before joining the group & the wise words/advices on life matters she often offers to them - yet she can also be mischievous like a lil child girl, hence still matching her pretty short height, petite body, & child-like face on that regard lol - some of the pics she posted today:

^ The girl (or should I call her the woman? XD ) is also known for her sharp tongue & being a "kissing demon." lol

A fan-made MV of a song by the 2nd team of SNH48 recorded on the group's current latest EP, featuring the manga versions of the team's members:



[EDIT]
^ Ah, that preview after the end of the MV shows the manga's upcoming new characters basing on those current newbie members in the team. :)

The 3rd team of GNZ48 rendering a number from the group's current latest EP on a Lunar New Year show dedicated to all the migrant workers (rural residents who leave their homes to work in the cities - an indispensable factor in transforming the country into the so-called "world factory" over the recent decades) in the whole country on state TV today - the song title means "coming home" (most of the migrant workers return home to reunite w/ their families during the Lunar New Year long holidays, which's the biggest annual human migration on Earth):



[EDIT]
^ BTW, the soundtrack of the full version of that number:

Fan-compiled Monroe-esque fetish footage of the members of SNH48's 1st team during the end of the performance of a number of the team's current stage at their exclusive theater: :o



[EDIT]
^ None of them can be compared w/ Monroe in terms of posture & expression, of course, lol but the last one, by a top dancer of the team, still looks quite good & is the best among them IMO. :cool:

^ Have just come across w/ many pics of that top dancer on this page:

http://cutiesgeneration.com/%E8%A8%B1%E ... %E5%A4%A9/

Before joining the group, the stylish, towering "fashion queen" & 1st-generation member of the group, nicknamed "Kiki," left her beloved single mom & went to Shanghai all alone to pursue her studies of dancing over there when she was still a kid in her early teens. :cool: She was the center girl of a major song of the group in the past, & is the leader of their seven-member subgroup Style-7. She's also a spokesperson of the group's own exclusive fashion brand IDOL'S GENERATION.

An acrobatic performance by two members of SHY48's 1st team (their current only team), who're identical twins, at their Lunar New Year special theater performance today, which's also their 1st theater performance after the break for the Lunar New Year long holidays:



^ If you're wondering, yes, they're pro acrobats before joining the group. :)

[EDIT]
A random collection of blog pics posted by various members of the SNHG groups during the Lunar New Year long holidays, some of which were shot outside the country, from a Japanese fansite (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

Before joining the group, the stylish, towering "fashion queen" & 1st-generation member of the group, nicknamed "Kiki," left her beloved single mom & went to Shanghai all alone to pursue her studies of dancing over there when she was still a kid in her early teens. :cool: She was the center girl of a major song of the group in the past, & is the leader of their seven-member subgroup Style-7. She's also a spokesperson of the group's own exclusive fashion brand IDOL'S GENERATION.

A compilation of her footage on the runway in their exclusive annual fashion event late last year:



^ As seen at the end of the clip, she won the 1st place in that event for the 2nd consecutive year. :cool:

A latest promotion video for the exclusive theater of GNZ48, in which you can see the various facilities, services, & activities inside the theater, released today:



^ Note that the flower/garden motif of the theater reflects one of the nicks of the southern provincial capital which's its home city, meaning "flower city." :)

^ Some explanations, w/ screencaps, on that promotion video on this page of a Japanese fansite (click the pics to view them in their original large size):

http://snh48.info/2017/02/10101/

^ 1st pic: A huge LED display for them right above the main entrance of the giant commercial tower in which the theater is located.

2nd pic: QR-code lockers for their fans to place their personal belongings before entering the auditorium.

4th pic: Portraits of the members of all their current three teams on the wall.

6th pic: Fans voting for their favorite group members after a theater performance.

Last pic: Fans lining up at each side in the square in front of the main entrance of the tower after a theater performance at night, to say goodbye/goodnight to the group members, who're heading to the waiting minibus (bottom of the pic) which'll carry them back to their training & living complex - this' already become a part of the staple rituals in their fan culture.

Lolicon pics of a prepubescent elementary school girl? :lol: Actually this immensely popular Cantonese member of SNH48's 2nd team (currently ranked #4 SNHG-wide), who's also the oldest member in the team, is already in her mid-20s, & is respectfully called the "teacher" by her teammates due to her tremendous life/social experiences before joining the group & the wise words/advices on life matters she often offers to them - yet she can also be mischievous like a lil child girl, hence still matching her pretty short height, petite body, & child-like face on that regard lol - some of the pics she posted today:

^ The girl (or should I call her the woman? XD ) is also known for her sharp tongue & being a "kissing demon." lol

Some more she posted today, from the same series:

Some posters of BEJ48 members for the Lantern Festival aka the so-called Chinese Valentine's Day today, which concludes the half-month-long Lunar New Year celebrations (not counting the Lunar Yearend & New Year's Eve ones) - the posters are styled & toned like traditional Chinese paintings:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxgy1 ... 3vr7k3.jpg

^ The captain of their 2nd team & the Chinese dragon happily looking at each other. XD

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxgy1 ... 3vrgz7.jpg

^ They're donning their current stage uniforms for the Lunar New Year. Those small words at the lower left or right are the ancient written forms of their names. :)

[EDIT]
SM play? lol Some members of SNH48's 2nd team at the backstage of their exclusive theater tonight:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/db1941cbgy1 ... 1zkb2d.jpg

^ The "S" role is played by the team's former acting captain, whereas the "M" role by their currently #2-ranked comedian member.

The 1st instalment of a belated pictorial report on a major SNHG concert last month, posted today (actually already after midnight on the next day) by a Japanese fan, who shot all the pics - since he bought the ticket of the most expensive seats, i.e. those closest to & providing the best view of the stage, his pics of the stage are quite good (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes - while the 1st several ones are just larger, most are quite large):

http://snh48-tomo.com/snh48/13584

^ I don't have the time to comment on the pics, so if you can read Japanese, you may read his descriptions on them. :)

A comical taekwondo performance by a 2nd-team member of GNZ48 at their Lantern Festival special theater performance a couple of days ago:



There're a number of members in the SNHG groups who're practitioners of various schools of martial arts (both the Chinese & foreign ones). :)

[EDIT 1]
^ And there're several Latin dancers in the groups too - here's one of them, another member of the same team, showing her skills at that theater performance:



^ It's too short, tho. :confused:

[EDIT 2]
^ Also, a gym performance by a 3rd-team member of the same group at the same theater performance:



^ Again, too short. lol

[EDIT 3]
^ A slightly longer Latin dance performance by another 3rd-team member at the same theater performance:

An official report on a birthday special theater performance dedicated to the "big brother" of SNH48's 2nd team a couple of days ago, released today - I generally don't link such reports here, but since she looks so awesome in the pics, which're also quite large (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes), I'm making it an exception:

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2121.html

^ 1st pic: A birthday decoration set up by the former fashion model's fanclub at the 1/F lobby of their exclusive theater - it's modeled on the commanding tent of ancient generals, reflecting her actual leadership role in the team, even tho she holds no formal leadership positions in it (that kanji on the banner hung at the middle inside the tent is her surname, & a caricature of her in an ancient general's costume is seen at the lower right).

Last two pics: That fancy, fortress-like birthday cake on the trolley is made by the team's captain ( :ohmy: ) & a 1st-generation member in their 1st team ( :ohmy: ), which shows her status in both the team & the group. :cool:

Happy Belated Birthday, Lisa! :keke:

[EDIT]
^ In the 2nd last pic on the linked page, she's flanked by the team's ace (left), that veteran 1st-generation member from their 1st team (2nd right; in private clothes), & the 2nd-team captain.
