Some of the fall/winter '16 collection of SNH48's own in-house fashion brand, Idol's Generation, modeled by members of their subgroup Style7 - the collection will also be exhibited during that fashion event mentioned above:

^ 1st & last pics: the top dancer of their 1st team; the leader of that subgroup.
2nd pic: the sexy captain of their 3rd team.
3rd pic: one of the tallest members, if not the tallest, of their 1st team & the entire group.
4th pic: a petit (but also the oldest lol ) member of their 2nd team.
5th pic: the ace of their 1st team.
6th pic: the captain of their 1st team; the de facto leader of the entire group.
7th pic: the wealthy Taiwanese member of their 1st team.

More pics of that brand's designer products worn by them, on this page:

http://www.weibo.com/ttarticle/p/show?i ... 8317355075

Have come across w/ this nice selfie of a popular German-blooded member of their 3rd team, dressed up in a red qipao at the backstage of their exclusive theater:

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006oEDZUgw1 ... 1e0qkz.jpg

The pretty young girl is also a pet member among her teammates & of the team's outgoing captain. Their fans have also expected her to be a candidate of their next-generation ace in due course.

BTW, her English given name is Jenny, which pronunciation is equivalent to that of her Chinese given name. :)

The top dancer of SNH48's 1st team (the left one in the 1st pic below) & her best-friend teammate selling an Italian jewellry brand outside a mall - both have been elected as their Fashion Style-7 members for the 2nd consecutive year lately:

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/006fbgyOgw1 ... 2y34qr.jpg

http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/006fbgyOgw1 ... 2winpd.jpg

Yet another sign that they're coming out from their otaku origins & entering into the mainstream. :)

The beloved captain of that team, who's been elected as one of the seven Fashion Style-7 members at the event for the 2nd consecutive year just lately (she's also an elected member of their latest General Election), has decided to leave them :( - here's a footage of the team's hot-pot farewell party for her today (see her hugging her teammates near the end of it):

http://video.weibo.com/show?fid=1034:07 ... a5b7d0f010

Regarding the reason for her leaving, I wouldn't like to talk about it here, but would only say that it's similar to the reason for her lengthy hiatus back then, which I've also mentioned here at the time (while also not detailing the reason for that).

Anyway, while it's certainly unfortunate & a pity, she may now pursue a better life w/o so much worries any longer. :)

^ Some of them look so green on the runway XD - unlike all the other, older teams, that newest team participated in the event for the very 1st time.

A pretty short but awesome footage of several prominent 1st-team members of SNH48 performing their recent single w/ a backdrop of traditional Chinese architecture, uploaded by the state TV: :cool:



Wish the footage were longer - preferably as long as the song.

A funny promotion video for a TV show, featuring the deputy captain of SNH48's 5th team:



^ What a way to make a proposal! XD

The MV itself, released today:



^ A number of scenes have been cut out :( - hope they'd release a long/extended, full-drama version of it :D (I'm pretty sure they'll release its dance version, tho).

Finally, the dance version, released today:



It's taken them so long to release it. lol

Some BEJ48 members performing their own version of lion dance at their quarters inside their training & living complex: :loltext:

http://video.weibo.com/show?fid=1034:b3 ... 6&type=mp4

And this couple of GNZ48 members doing that, too, in their bedroom inside the complex of their group (the clip is very short, tho):

http://m.miaopai.com/show/channel/nraKV ... vpw1-gPQ__

For those who have no idea what a real lion dance is like, you may watch a clip of it here:

http://www.youtube.com/results?q=lion%20dance&sm=3

[EDIT]
A few uber cool pics of the deputy captain of SNH48's 2nd team from several days ago: :cool:

The 1st part of a deep documentary on SNHG (the two-parter closely follows them for the half year starting from the end of last year):



As they've become a phenomenon nowadays, there're more & more documentaries exploring them, produced by the TV stations. :)

[EDIT 1]
Behind-the-scene footage of BEJ48 members from all their current three teams appearing on a state-TV show aired tonight:



^ That uniformed senior police officer seen near the end of the clip is also a guest on that show, who can recognize three selected group members from all of them, just from the portraits hand-drawn according to the highly pixelated images of those three. :ohmy:

It's rare for the members of all their three teams appearing together on the same show.

BTW, while the growth speed of SNH48 is spectacular relative to that of AKB48, the one of the former's sister groups, such as BEJ48, is even faster still. :oh:

[EDIT 2]
[Re: The 1st part of this post] For those who can read Japanese, here's a transcript of it in Japanese:

[Re: The last part of the preceding post] That transcript has now been completed (w/ many screencaps from that documentary added too), & hence I've removed my previous remark in that part accordingly. :)

[Re: The 2nd part of the preceding post] A compiled footage of the face recognition part of that show itself, which was aired on the premium 1st channel of the state TV:

http://video.weibo.com/show?fid=1034:bf ... 9&type=mp4

^ Again, pretty impressive. :cool:

That police officer from an eastern coastal province has drawn more than 70,000 facial portraits for a decade, & cracked several hundreds of cases (these days we can also use supercomputers to do that, tho lol ). In the show you can see he got all the three target persons correct from those 48 group members.

A pic of the ace of SNH48's 1st team, donning an ancient costume, on the set of a historical comedy movie to open during the upcoming Lunar New Year long holidays early next year, in which she co-stars (w/ some big names in the supporting cast too):

A compiled footage of the "fashion queen" of SNH48 at their recent annual fashion event:



As a professional dancer, ballerina, & their 1st team's top dancer, the tall, stylish 1st-generation member is also the leader of their subgroup Style7. :)

Found a large, full-body pic of the "big brother" of SNH48's 2nd team, in the team's current stage uniform:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006aRYe9jw1 ... 1qidkh.jpg

The former model has also been elected as one of the seven Fashion Style-7 members in a recent annual SNHG fashion event. :)

A poster featuring her at the center w/ some of her teammates, all donning that team uniform, for an upcoming basketball event co-organized by the Chinese Basketball Association:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgw1 ... 2711kx.jpg

^ The one next to her at the left is the top dancer of the team, while the right one is the current top/center girl of the elected Under Girls group.

A lovely poster of another 2nd-team member for an upcoming historical comedy drama, in which she's one of the main cast:

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006m1XYggw1 ... 11116p.jpg

^ While she looks uber cute & all in the poster, like a lil cutie girl, she's actually a graduate of a prestigious university-level acting school in the capital. :cool: She's also a former top/center girl of the Under Girls group, & is currently an elected member in the Top Girls group.

[EDIT]
[Re: The preceding post] For those who can read Japanese, here's a transcript of that part in Japanese:

http://snh48.info/2016/11/9609/

This documentary about them is one of the deepest produced in the recent years, & covers some dark sides, controversies, & other negative stuff - you can even see the group members criticizing their management's policies. That all-too-familiar triangular (power & money? XD ) relationship characterized by tensions & interdependencies among the group members, management, & fans is also highlighted in its selection of interviewees from those three sides.

I've made a bit of edits on the last paragraph of the preceding post to make the meanings clearer. :)

[EDIT]
GNZ48 has produced this Thanksgiving Day video message to their fans & released it today to express their gratitude to them:

Four naval officers performing on stage? :lol: Actually it's four prominent members of SNH48's 4th team, led by the deputy captain of the team, performing the title song of the team's current stage at a concert tonight, which also features some big-name & veteran singers & groups from around Greater China:



They've also represented the group to receive a music award at the same event. :)

[EDIT]
^ Ah, that award is the Best New Group (my translation) award of the Chinese Music Awards (official translation), & that venue of the event is a stadium named after one of the famous ten field marshals in the early period of the People's Republic, & built in the capital of a central province.

A 2nd-team member of BEJ48 posing as a Jedi in her "lightsaber duel" w/ a fan during a phototaking session of the group's handshaking, signing, & phototaking event today:

http://ww4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxjw1 ... 0qoaj6.jpg

^ She's donning her team's uniform. :)

[EDIT]
Behind-the-scene footage of four of the recently elected Fashion Style-7 members of SNHG groups (three SNH48 & one BEJ48 members) doing ad shootings for an Italian jewelry brand - they look pretty cool in it: :cool:

A big surprise in a theater performance of SNH48's 3rd team tonight: :lol:



^ That "new team member" is a celeb TV host/comedian, & has become a huge fan of the SNHG groups himself during his working w/ them on various shows recently. lol

A recap of three recent major events of SNH48/SNHG, namely, their autumn sports tournament, a sponsored special theater performance by SNH48's 3rd team (brought by a Japanese company of consumer electronics every year), & their annual fashion event, on a video mag titled Global Fashion Manual (my translation) & targeted at the female audience:



^ Those four group members commenting on the events all belong to the 3rd team of SNH48, w/ the deputy captain of the team (2nd from left), who's the most senior of the four, talking the most. :)

[EDIT]
Probably the very 1st live performance of a nice original song of BEJ48's 2nd team, which's one of the numbers in the group's entirely original debut EP, by the same team at their exclusive theater lately:

Behind-the-scene footage of a number of prominent SNH48 members posing as various Chinese & Western food on the shooting set of a series of ads for a food delivery app: lol



^ I like that "fish" most. XD

[EDIT]
The 3rd team of BEJ48 being divided into two groups to play a war game - now they can apply their regular military training at school in a "battlefield": lol



^ That "battlefield" is set in the pre-communist Republican Period of the country, as shown in those political slogans & the Nationalist Party's logo on the walls. :)

It happened last year or the year before. The company had a pay fines because of a tax audit that found that certain charity funds were taxable..

^ I've only heard that it had systemic accounting malpractices which inflated its profits.

Now the captain of SNH48's 1st team & the "big brother" of their 2nd team have done that too:

Correction: That's actually a Chinese fashion mag unrelated to that Japanese one - sorry for the mix-up. ^_^'

BTW, those GNZ48 members include some prominent ones of the group. :)

A couple of pics of some BEJ48 members attending a commercial event tonight:

http://ww2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxjw1 ... 22ru0y.jpg

^ On the red carpet, w/ their signatures just signed on the backdrop behind them - those lil white, circular objects held by some of them are the latest TV boxes produced by the media & entertainment company holding the event, which have the name & a caricature of a different group member printed on the surface.

Two 1st-team & five 4th-team members of SNH48 performing one older & one newer numbers at a global game tournament today, w/ their "fashion queen" from the 1st team being the center girl of the performance, & the deputy captain of that team being the most senior among all of those seven group members:



The long-time "special relationship" between those two teams can also be shown in it. :)

A big surprise in a theater performance of SNH48's 3rd team tonight: :lol:



^ That "new team member" is a celeb TV host/comedian, & has become a huge fan of the SNHG groups himself during his working w/ them on various shows recently. lol

A footage from his TV show aired today, featuring his "joining" that team, training w/ his "teammates," & finally, performing w/ them:



^ A well-known dance instructor of them is also featured in it. :cool:
