A moving, if not even tear jerking, quality MV-short of a former group ace & "face" of SNH48, who's now a solo artist under the same management company, w/ both Chinese & English subs, released today:


^ She's pretty good & well-suited in playing characters from the Republican Period. :cool:
Behind-the-scenes footage of it, featuring both her & the director:

An official report on the birthday special theater performance of SNH48's 4th team for the 18th birthday of the team's relatively young deputy captain a couple of days ago, released today (right-click the pics to view them in their original large sizes):

SNH48杨冰怡生日特别公演回顾:温润如水,静怡如花——SNH48中国官方网站

The team's captain was absent from that theater performance, hence she'd become the most senior member there, even tho many of her teammates are actually older than her. lol

The young leader also doubles as a member of their five-member subgroup COLOR GIRLS. :)

Behind-the-scenes footage featuring the captain of SNH48's 1st team - hence also being the de facto leader of the entire group - shooting for a footwear series, posted by herself yesterday:

The founding, 1st-generation member is also the spokesperson-member of their elite subgroup 7SENSES. :)

A classy decorative installation set up at the 1/F lobby of SNH48's exclusive theater by the fanclub of a 4th-generation member in their 1st team for her birthday - it totally mirrors the character & personal taste/interest of that former deputy captain of their 4th team: :cool:

Various offshot footage of 7SENSES, an elite subgroup of SNH48, during their stay in S. Korea for attending & receiving an award at a major music awards event over there earlier, released by their official blogger today:


Not sure why it's taken them so long to release it. lol

And this one featuring the captain of the same team & posted by herself today:

A cool image pic of the current #1-ranked member of SNH48 from their 3rd team, from the upcoming MV for their current latest single:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1fw4hokp7ngj212y1j4x6v.jpg

The former member of their 2nd team is a controversial, "inflammable" figure in the group, but nonetheless has a solid & huge fanbase, which solidarity is even further strengthened whenever she's being criticized & on the defensive for her controversial speech or behavior, which actually helps her rise to & staying on her current top position in the group - not sure if she's really a political mastermind, but what she's said/done & its actual effect is a textbook case in politics. lol

[EDIT]
^ The soundtrack of that single, released today:

^ For those who wanna know what exactly the respective special powers of those 16 witches are, here's a pictorial list of them w/ their English names:

http://imgs.aixifan.com/cms/2018_10_16/1539671336771.jpg

^ Wish the pics - actually posters - were (way) larger, tho, but guess they don't wanna hamper the sales of the posters. lol

BTW, hope there'd be a full-length drama version of that MV :D (I'm pretty sure there'll be a dance version released in due course, tho).

And that MV, shot in Croatia & released today:

Behind-the-scenes footage from it, w/ a surprising appearance of someone near the end, released today:


^ Their former group ace wasn't participating in its shooting over there, of course, as she was already no longer an SNHG/SNH48 member - she was having some (yet-to-be-disclosed) works of her own there around the same time. :)

A trailer, also released today, of an upcoming TV drama based on a famous legend of fantasy & romance, & starring her as the title character, a white snake demon who's a tragic protagonist in the story:

《新白娘子传奇》一世千年先导预告 于朦胧鞠婧祎一眼定情

And a couple of nice shots of her taken on the sidelines of a media event for that drama today, posted by the official blogger of her personal office on the same day:

A poster for the upcoming MV for the 2nd current new single of SNHG, shot in Hong Kong:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1fwfwp8sel1j22no3rahbg.jpg

^ Its layout makes it look like a typical poster of Hong Kong movies. lol The background also features a typical street view of that city, tho it's too dark to see clearly. The group members shown on it are (clockwise from top left): a prominent member of BEJ48's 2nd team, the former deputy captain of SNH48's old 5th team (now a prominent member of their 1st team), a prominent member of their 3rd team, & the former captain of their old 5th team (now a prominent member of their 2nd team).

As a resident of the Shenzhen SEZ (Special Economic Zone) bordering that SAR (Special Administrative Region), she visits the city often & is pretty familiar w/ it (the Cantonese girl also speaks the same dialect spoken over there), hence she could act as a guide for the other group members shooting there, some of whom might even have never visited it before. :)
