The one of the single's center girl, who plays two characters in the MV, i.e. those twin sisters (one of whom was killed by that bad fat guy, who was assassinated by the other one in the end) - the former member of the same team has already graduated & become a solo artist under the same company:

Behind-the-scenes footage focusing on the top vocalist of SNH48's 1st team, compiled by her Taiwanese fanclub:


The 5th-generation-member is the former deputy captain of their legendary old 5th team, the biggest ever but short-lived team which members have become the backbone of SNH48, BEJ48 (before its prominent members were transferred back to SNH48 ), & GNZ48. :)

An MV for a famous stage number of SNHG, performed by two of the most prominent members of GNZ48, who're also one of the most well-known lesbians "couples" of the group & SNHG groups, released today:


^ The MV has got a timely Halloween feel. :cool:

Despite their relatively large age difference, they've become pretty close friends early on, w/ the younger one, who's a black-belt, award-winning Taekwondo practitioner, being more active & the older one more passive in their relationship. :)

[EDIT]
^ That younger one is the one w/ blue hair.
A decoration set for a special fan-meeting event of that "couple," placed at the main-entrance lobby of the group's exclusive theater by their shipping club joint fanclub:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy1gwll9zgjgbj33eo29se84.jpg

I haven't linked all the pics here, but most of their fans seen there in the pics are female, including the officials of their joint fanclub. XD

The MV for the team anthem of SNH48's 3rd team, w/ some behind-the-scenes footage at the end credits, released today:


^ The plot is pretty self-explanatory, & that captain of the ship is also the captain of the team, a 5th-generation member. :)

[EDIT]
^ Quoting from the official comments on the MV:

此次MV的剧情创意和剧本都由TEAM HII成员深度参与创作。她们也同时在拍摄、服装等方面都提出了建设性意见
^ It says the members of the team have deeply participated in the creation of the MV's plot ideas & screenplay, & also made constructive suggestions in the areas of shooting, costumes, etc.
