Finally, the dedicated HP for SNHG's summer EP was opened today:

http://www.snh48.com/event/s194/

^ Some brief notes from it:

- It's a joint production of all the current four SNHG groups, i.e. SNH48, BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48.
- It has four versions, & the various versions contain 14 original numbers in total, w/ different attached items in different versions.
- Its title number is rendered by 32 selected members from the above-mentioned four groups, w/ the MV shot in Australia. The other numbers are respectively done by all the current 13 teams of those groups.
- There're a number of peripheral items sold separately.

It's one of their annual major productions. :)

The soundtrack of the full version of that title number, released today:



As I recall, I've said here in the past that there're 24 selected members rendering the song & shooting its MV in Australia, but that "24" is only based on their previous practice on their summer EPs, & it's actually "32" this time, as mentioned in the above quote - that's a record number of selected members working on their singles so far. :)

They've also announced today this year's SNHG General Election, which'll commence later this month & be completed at the end of July. There're tons of info about it as well as some other related announcements on this official page:

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2253.html

^ I don't have the time to cover it here (so you may read it yourself if you know the language), but will report on this thread those upcoming events mentioned in it as they happen in due course. Just saying here that it'll be even way bigger on various aspects than in the last year, reflecting their continuing spectacular growth.

They've released more info on it today - my highlights of it immediately below their corresponding screencaps:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0n3acd.jpg

- A total of 66 members, divided into four groups, will be elected from all their current four SNHG groups.
- In addition, 16 members will be respectively elected from BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0njgpe.jpg

- The elected members will record their dedicated singles, which MVs will be respectively shot in Italy, the UAE, & China.
- The #1-ranked member will have her own custom-made solo single & its MV, as well as her personal exclusive concert.
- The top three ranking members will have their huge images displayed at the key locations in the main districts of four major cities, including the capital.
- The elected members will be cast in various movies & TV dramas, including the main cast of a military drama in collaboration w/ the PLA.

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0fwabs.jpg

- The elected members will be offered the priority to work as the spokespersons of various domestic & foreign brands.
- The elected members will appear on various variety shows as hosts or guests.
- The top 16 ranking members of BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48 will respectively record their dedicated singles & shoot the MVs of those singles.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0o5jt3.jpg

- The voting period will last from June to July.
- A commencement ceremony will be held at the start of June.
- The preliminary & interim results will be respectively announced in mid June & early July.
- A warm-up event will be held at the end of July, w/ the final results announcement concert held on the next day at the same venue.

A neat, cartoonish summary of it posted by their official blogger today to give an instant idea on the whole thing:

Footage of the group ace of SNH48 starring in a latest sports drama - it's pretty rare for her to appear in dramas/movies set in the present time lol (note that there're some sexually suggestive scenes in the footage, but nothing big):


A poster of her for that drama:

That EP is currently selling like cakes, w/ 100,000 copies sold in five mins. on the 1st day today! :ohmy: And some of its versions were even sold out. Here's an official report on it, w/ pics of the physical-shop sales at the exclusive theaters of all the current four SNHG groups today - note that some of the group members were helping as shop assistants: lol

^ Behind-the-scenes footage from the shooting of the MV for the EP's title number in Australia earlier, released today:



That MV will be released later. :)

[EDIT]
A 3rd-team member of SNH48 showing her guitar skills in rendering a popular J-pop number at a theater performance of the team today:



The multi-talented fluent Japanese speaker was originally a huge SNH48 fan herself just a few years ago, who used to frequent their exclusive theater to watch their performances there & was fairly well-known among their fans, but she later decided to join the group & succeeded in their auditions, hence changing her identity from a fan to an idol. lol

[Re: The last part of the preceding post] Some large pics of them shot during that theater performance:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 684b2a.jpg

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 6584qr.jpg

It's their very 1st time performing there. :)

[EDIT]
Have come across w/ two nice private pics of the captain of SNH48's 3rd team, probably shot in Australia during their shooting of their current summer single's MV over there earlier - I usually don't post their private pics here, but these two just look so good: :cool:

http://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 2iob2e.jpg

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/005I0dBVly1 ... 2iohdy.jpg

She's currently pretty nervous for her defense of her paper in front of her professors tomorrow XD - hope everything will be OK & she'll graduate smoothly. :)

The "sexy queen" of SNH48 covering Hey Jude at a theater performance of their 1st team, i.e. her team, yesterday (the top vocalist of the team, who's one of her best friends in the team, joined her in the midst):



Wish they'd cover more classics from the Beatles. :D

[EDIT 1]
These days even BEJ48's newly formed 3rd team, who're all newbies, get the chance to walk on the red carpet of an event: lol



^ I like the team's current stage uniform. :cool:

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The 1st part of this post] An official report on that theater performance, which's dedicated to her birthday, released today, w/ many nice & cool pics (right-click to view them in their original large sizes):

http://www.snh48.com/html/allnews/zixun ... /2277.html

^ The 1st pic shows an uber cool & classy birthday decoration setup at the 1/F lobby of their exclusive theater, installed by the birthday event organizing committee of her fanclub. :cool:

Her parents were also there to watch the theater performance, & they're warmly greeted by her fans.

The 1st-generation member is also a member of their recently debuted seven-member elite subgroup 7SENSES. :)
