SNH48 selling a portable speaker in an American (?) city: lol

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/704bb229ly1 ... 0m810a.jpg

[EDIT 1]
A pretty early (probably the very 1st of its kind :ohmy: ) electioneering promotion video of a 2nd-team member of SNH48 for their coming General Election expected to start several months later, produced by her fans & released today:



The Cantonese otaku girl isn't their prettiest group member, but is nonetheless very talented in music & popular among their fans. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ Just before midnight today, she uploaded this footage of herself in a pajama, singing & playing the uke (she can also play various other musical instruments; note that the video image is reversed - she actually used her right hand to play the uke):

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

^ 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).

It'll debut pretty soon, & here's its emblem, in which you can also see that it's designated "Team HIII" (as expected), w/ its official team color being shown too:

A pic of a prominent member of SNH48's 5th team working as an MC, performer, & reporter at an anti-smoking event promoting a new anti-smoking law of the local govt. to be effective next month, on Valentine's Day lately - the talented guitarist & songwriter was donning a cool qipao:

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/006jCjFigy1 ... 1kw1ky.jpg

And a footage of her at the event:

http://m.miaopai.com/show/channel/qYAGC ... 1AS4cazA__

^ Note that she appears at it all alone w/o any of her teammates/groupmates :oh: (it's also her very 1st solo outside work), which's pretty rare & shows her ability to handle it by herself & the trust given to her in doing so. :cool:

Looks like some staff working at the control room of SNH48's exclusive theater are fans of the captain of the group's 4th team - a few shots of the consoles there, posted by the captain herself today: :lol:

^ BTW, those mousepads are produced by her fanclub, not by the group.

A rare (mainly) solo performance of a representative group song of SNH48's 2nd team, by a so-called "2.5th-generation" member in the team at a birthday special theater performance of the team dedicated to her today:



The popular Cantonese member is a former member of a local idol group in her native southern province, & directly joined SNH48 w/o going thru their regular audition & recruitment procedures at a time after the recruitment of their 2nd-generation members but before that of their 3rd-generation ones back then. :)

[EDIT 1]
A pretty critical, in-depth, & detailed long article about SNH48/SNHG on the Chinese edition of the French fashion mag Marie Claire, w/ several nice, if a bit small, pics of some of their leading group members, & its Japanese translation posted on this page of a Japanese fansite today - the article covers their business strategies & operations, w/ interviews w/ some group members & their CEO & even including some embarrassing content/comments that their management mightn't wanna see being mentioned, & is a good read, whether from the industry's or a general business/management POV, if you can read Chinese or Japanese (click the pics to view them in their original large size):

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. :)

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly1 ... 12j0y2.jpg

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly1 ... 15xn1p.jpg

^ She's donning its current stage uniform w/ its purple team color & a badge showing its emblem. Don't be fooled by her baby face - she's most likely the tallest member in all the current SNHG groups. lol BTW, her profile also states that her specialties are guzheng (a traditional Chinese string instrument), jazz, dancesport, gun shooting, & visual arts. :)

[EDIT]
^ Here's a promotion video for its upcoming debut stage starting later this month, released today & featuring the title number of that stage, which's adapted from the current stage of SNH48's 4th team:

^ Its members performing a song adapted from Amazing Grace, w/ the Chinese lyrics written by the deputy captain of SNH48's 3rd team, at their exclusive theater today:



^ They're donning its current formal uniform. :)

[EDIT 1]
^ The opening of their official portraits at their exclusive theater today - it was hosted by two 1st-team members, who looked pretty nervous in it, as even they are also newbies & pretty green themselves: XD



[EDIT 2]
^ Ah, as seen in the number of those portraits on the wall, the current number of the newly debuted members in the new team is only 15 instead of the minimum 16, hence a member of the 1st team has been assigned to the new team as a double member in both teams.

^ An official pictorial report on it, released today:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly1 ... aguu11.jpg

^ That tallest team member, whom I've mentioned above yesterday, has the very notably shortest skirt in her team's grey formal uniform - if it were a school, she must've broken the dress code rules. lol BTW, almost all of her teammates are also quite tall, w/ many over 170 cm - the team is most probably the one having the biggest average height among all the teams in the SNHG groups. :)

[EDIT 1]
An official report released today on the birthday special theater performance of SNH48's 1st team a couple of days ago, dedicated to the wealthy & stylish Taiwanese member of the team, who seldom appears at their theater performances these days (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2129.html

The rebellious 1st-generation member aka the "queen of SNH48," who's got the clout to often ignore the rules/instructions of their management & is one of the few group members being accommodated by their management on various work matters, has been accepted by a prestigious university-level acting school recently. :cool:

A media report on the debut of SHY48's 2nd team lately:



^ Note that those two 1st-team members in their team's pink+white uniform & hosting the 2nd team's debut ceremony are actually of the very same 1st generation as those newly debuted 2nd-team members, as the members of both teams were recruited at the same time - it's just that the 1st-team members debuted earlier & only not long ago. Hence the members of both teams can all be seen as newbies. BTW, the candidates of the future 2nd-generation members, who'll form the 3rd team, are currently going thru audition/screening procedures.

A compilation of some footage of SNH48's group ace from a current historical drama, in which she plays an intellectual w/ ultra intelligence & photographic memory recruited by an agent of the justice dept. to crack seemingly paranormal, X-Files-like criminal cases in the then-capital during the Tang Dynasty (the biggest city on Earth at the time):



She's the 2nd lead starring in that drama. :)

[EDIT]
^ Ah, while her character seems to be playing a role in that drama like Scully's in The X-Files, her role actually is to use her vast knowledge (she's dubbed the "walking library" in the drama) & logical reasoning/analysis to unveil the paranormal covers of real crimes. lol

The drama has now become a smash hit. :)

Some awesome photos posted by a 3rd-team member of GNZ48 tonight, which aren't gravure shots, but ones in which she cosplays as an ancient beauty, complete w/ the matching set & props:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006Apk2ugy1 ... 3207wh.jpg

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/006Apk2ugy1 ... 3207wh.jpg

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006Apk2ugy1 ... 320b2a.jpg

^ I also like the lighting in the pics. :cool:

[EDIT 1]
Bonus pic: a shot of a prominent member of SNH48's 5th team during her birthday party w/ her fans at the cafe inside their exclusive theater today, posted by herself after midnight:

http://img.snh48club.com/snh48club/imag ... 354153.jpg

The cool/mature-looking girl is actually still at her mid-teens. :oh:

[EDIT 2]
^ A couple more pics of her during that:

^ [Re: The latter two parts of the preceding post] An official report on her very 1st birthday special theater performance a couple of days ago, released today (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2135.html

The young teen looks/feels way older than her actual age, & also has a non-cutie sounding given name, unlike a number of her fellow group members. :)

[EDIT 1]
A screencap of an SNH48 stage costume dressing game played by a 2nd-team member of the group who was badly injured in a fire accident early last year, about which I'd reported here at the time, & is recovering well at present (she's already been discharged from hospital for quite some time & is currently doing physical therapy), posted by her today:

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/db1504dagy1 ... 0qotjz.jpg

^ That pink stage costume was actually worn by herself during her performance of a representative solo stage number of her. :)

[EDIT 2]
Posting this clip featuring a few 3rd-team members of SNH48 at a commercial event today here just because of the team's uber cool current stage uniforms donned by them there: :cool:



^ BTW, the leftmost one is the team's deputy captain, who's already been their de facto captain for quite some time after the departure of their captain, & the rightmost one is the team's ace.

Don't be fooled by her baby face - she's most likely the tallest member in all the current SNHG groups. lol BTW, her profile also states that her specialties are guzheng (a traditional Chinese string instrument), jazz, dancesport, gun shooting, & visual arts. :)

[EDIT]
^ Here's a promotion video for its upcoming debut stage starting later this month, released today & featuring the title number of that stage, which's adapted from the current stage of SNH48's 4th team:


Its performing the full version of that title number at its debut stage today:



[EDIT]
^ And a duo unit number performed at that stage:


A footage of their rituals at the end of the stage, including a non-regular one, i.e. the presentation of bouquets to each member of the team in person by the SNHG's company president for their stage debut, as well as the (pretty nice :cool: ) official photos of the team's members in their team's stage uniforms (in the latter part of the footage):



[EDIT]
^ Note that those official photos are shown repetitively (the team has only 16 members, including a double member from the 1st team), & that one of them in the photos is in the different, pink stage uniform of the 1st team.

An atypical yet classic AKB48 song rendered in Chinese by an immensely popular member of SNH48's 2nd team (currently ranked #4 SNHG-wide), w/ the Chinese lyrics written by herself, at a special theater performance today in which she was conferred the title of MVP for the last year:



[EDIT 1]
^ Ah, she's already won that fan-voted title for four consecutive years! :ohmy: :cool:

Posting this clip featuring a few 3rd-team members of SNH48 at a commercial event today here just because of the team's uber cool current stage uniforms donned by them there: :cool:



^ BTW, the leftmost one is the team's deputy captain, who's already been their de facto captain for quite some time after the departure of their captain, & the rightmost one is the team's ace.

Finally, that deputy captain was formally promoted to captain today, along w/ a new deputy captain, who'll take care of the team's money & disciplinary matters, being appointed too, both of which have also been officially announced today. Congrats to both of them! :keke:

An official report on that birthday special theater performance, released today (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2143.html

The personality of the petite Cantonese 26-y.o. (!) often causes headaches for her teammates, roommate, & superiors (especially the team's deputy captain, who's the "team whip" in charge of the team's disciplinary matters XD ), as well as their staff & management (e.g. their official blogger had to comb the tons of fan responses on the net after a drama she stirred up during an MC session in that same theater performance, & hence could only blog one entry - a "goodnight" one - for the whole day :P ). She's also not the best one in singing or dancing. Yet she's immensely popular & seems to be more & more so - maybe her personality flaws are actually what make her so attractive & popular. lol

[EDIT]
The MV of a folk-like song about the title central inland city rendered by the deputy captain of SNH48's 5th team, shot in that city & featuring herself in it:

The ace of SNH48 on the cover of the current latest issue of an entertainment mag, which cover story is about her starring in an immensely popular, currently running historical drama (which I've also covered here lately):

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/7f996901gy1 ... 1a1ajj.jpg

^ She's donning the current dress uniform of the 2nd team. Those words overlapping her skirt describe her character in that drama as a daughter of a wealthy family in Chang'an (now known as Xi'an, the country's cosmopolitan capital during the Tang Dynasty, which's the period setting of the drama) w/ high intelligence, & mention her transforming into that character w/ white skin tone, riches, & beauty, & being a "walking human encyclopedia." lol

Correction: Those 16 aren't just selected from SNH48, but from their sister groups too.

[EDIT 2]
^ And a bit more info: That new MV is for their upcoming summer single. :)

[EDIT 3]
^ Also, since their summer singles are major productions, & considering that members from other sister groups also participate in it, I think the number of members selected is likely 24 instead of the above-mentioned 16.

[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] She's one of those selected members, & has done a fanservice today in her guest room of a huge Sydney hotel - wasn't aware that she's that talented: :oh:

[EDIT]
^ Ah, as expected, there're tons of clips & pics of their various activities over there, but I can only post a very few of them here. :)

^ While they're shooting the MV for their summer single over there, SNH48 has released the soundtrack of their spring single today:



^ Those 16 group members from their various teams in one of the pics are the selected members participating in that single, which's the title number of their upcoming new EP. :)

[EDIT 1]
^ Ah, the title of the single can be translated as "The Future between Us."

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The preceding post] She's finally posted some higher-quality & huge pics of herself donning that bikini on a beach over there today - now that's really fanservice: :cool:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006cuHWfgy1 ... 36ox6q.jpg

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006cuHWfgy1 ... 36o7wj.jpg

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006cuHWfgy1 ... 36okjn.jpg

I'd say she's hidden her talents pretty well in the past since joining the group, as reflected by the shocks of her fans on the net after seeing her clips & pics shot over there. XD

[Re: The former part of the preceding post] And they've released the MV of the single right on the next day today: :oh:



^ As also shown in the MV, which features some rare, never-before-seen behind-the-scene footage of them, the song is actually about themselves. The center girl, who also did the narration at both the beginning & the end of the MV, is their comedian in their 2nd team (currently ranked #2) - it's actually her very 1st time being the center girl of their songs. :)

They've also opened a dedicated HP for that EP of the same title today:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s183/

[EDIT]
A footage of the training & living complex of BEJ48, w/ comments by some of the staff working there, released today to commemorate its opening a year ago - you can get several rare glimpses of parts of its interiors, some of its various facilities, & a few external looks of it:

A top vocalist of SNH48's 2nd team (the one not tying up her hair) & the captain of their 4th team rendering the Chinese version of Carmen at the day session of a five-team joint White Day special theater performance today:



[EDIT 1]
A prominent member of BEJ48's 1st team doing that awesome "face changing" performance from the traditional Sichuanese operas of her native province, & then a brief but sexy performance of a stage number w/ another leading member of the team, at her birthday special theater performance today:





[EDIT 2]
Two members from SNH48's 2nd & 4th teams, respectively, performing a cool Chinese-styled song in ancient costumes at the night session of that above-mentioned White Day special theater performance:



^ That 2nd-team member in a light-blue costume is a professional nurse & can't appear often at their theater performances due to her nursing work. :)

The "goddesses," i.e. the 1st-generation, founding members, of SNH48 performing a nice & meaningful number w/ the representatives from their various teams in their 4th anniversary special concert at their debut venue just earlier this year:



Like what I said here at the time, that small-scale concert was pretty private & wasn't broadcast live like their other concerts. :)

[EDIT]
^ Their performing an old song of those "goddesses" - note that it was done by the representatives from the non-1st-generation members in all their current five teams at the start, & then joined by the 1st-generation members themselves:



The concert was full of nostalgia. :)
