The hardworking Cantonese archer is a former captain of the team & also doubles as a member of GNZ48, which's based in her home province. :)

A new stage of SNH48's 2nd team premiered yesterday, which's actually a modified version of a famous stage of BEJ48's old 2nd team - one of the stage numbers:


^ You can see a number of former members of BEJ48's old 2nd team (including the center girl), now transferred to SNH48's 2nd team, performing w/ the other members of the latter team in it, complete w/ the stage uniforms for that stage of the former team. :)

[EDIT 1]
^ Another stage number:


[EDIT 2]
^ Yet another one:

^ Meanwhile, brand new stages of their 1st & 3rd teams are coming soon (the former in the 4th quarter this year; the latter later this month) - a promotion video for them, released today:


^ As seen in the clip, the backstories for the two stages are plot-related. Also note that a former captain of the 1st team, now graduated & having become a solo artist under the same management company, is also featured in it. :)

The captain of SNH48's 1st team rendering a pretty old English song & then showing off her dancing skills w/ a teammate at a theater performance of the team specially held a couple of days ago for celebrating her birthday:


Both she & that teammate are former BEJ48 members, tho they're originally SNH48 members before transferring to BEJ48 back then. :)

[EDIT]
While all the heavyweights of BEJ48 have now been transferred back to SNH48, BEJ48 is still alive & kicking - a couple of promotion videos for their current prominent members:


^ The captain (of the entire group - all their former three teams have been abolished due to insufficient number of members after the mass transferal of members to SNH48 & withdrawal of other members back then).


^ A popular, towering member.

These two popular members & the captain mentioned in the latter part of the preceding post are the triple aces of the group. :)

^ The last one:


^ An immensely popular young member, whose identical twin sister, who's another member in the group, is way less popular than her - this offers a very good case for the psychological study of the interacting factors between nature & nurture. lol
