This relatively low-key but nonetheless very real couple of former BEJ48 members in the 2nd team of SNH48 were getting married while performing the very last song of the concert: ::love:: XD


The title of that popular SNHG number means "to ourselves in the future."

^ The song-only part of the footage:


Unlike some other couples, both girls (perhaps we should call them young women now lol ) are pretty feminine. :)
