A couple of former BEJ48 members in the 2nd team of SNH48 were having their honeymoon shooting the MV for their single in Kagawa, Shikoku, Japan lately - footage of them traveling around there on the sidelines of their shootings:


These days many Chinese people visiting Japan are getting tired of big cities like Tokyo & Osaka, & prefer to travel to other prefectures to explore & have a deeper understanding of Japanese culture & lives there. :)

Various footage looking back at the past decade of an immensely popular former captain of SNH48's 3rd team, shown at her birthday special theater performance yesterday:


Together w/ her BFF teammate from the same generation, the very sportive 3rd-generation veteran is now one of the two soul-like guardian figures of the team & one of the only two members of that generation still being active in the team as well as the entire group. During her debut back then, the cheerful Cantonese girl was known to look like the very 1st group ace of AKB48.

It's about time for her & her BFF to graduate, which can happen at any time now - dunno how long they'll continue to stay in the team/group. :(

[EDIT]
Her team has long been their underdog team since its founding, but has finally become their most powerful team in the recent years, & she's certainly one of its leaders over the years helping make that happen. :cool:
