A top member of SHY48 from their 1st team covering a J-pop number in Chinese at a theater performance of the team today:


The stylish & exotic looking hottie is both a fashion & sexy icon of the group. :)

[EDIT]
A nice collection of pics of a former group ace of SNH48, now a solo artist still under the same company, posted by her official blogger from her personal office today & reposted on this page of a Japanese fansite:

Offshot footage of four members of 7SENSES, a subgroup of SNH48, shooting for a jeweler:


^ They're the spokesperson of the subgroup, who's also the captain of SNH48's 1st team, the "sexy queen" of that team, the top dancer of that team, & the top dancer of the 2nd team. :)

The MV for a famous Chinese-style stage number of SNH48, rendered by four prominent members from SNH48, BEJ48, & SHY48, who respectively represent the four seasons in the heavily Chinese-styled MV released today:


[EDIT]
The awesome debut performance of a solo number in the current stage of SNH48's 1st team by the top dancer of the team at a theater performance of the team today - the number has always been missing from the stage ever since the stage's debut till now due to her stage absence caused by her drama shootings at the time:


^ Note that the "fashion queen" of the team is also a professional ballet dancer, & both the number & its performance, which're obviously tailored for her, have got a heavy artistic, opera-like feel. :cool:

This moving one is set in the workplace & also features that 3rd-team member, who's probably a regular in the CM series, & the deputy captain of BEJ48's 1st team:

Sina Visitor System

^ Being a 5th-generation member, the 3rd-team member is actually a senior to that formidable deputy captain playing the superior/boss, who was a 6th-generation member of SNH48 before transferring to BEJ48. :)

Some recent updates regarding SHY48 & CKG48:

- About half of the SHY48 members, selected from both of their two teams, are currently doing theater performances at the exclusive theater of BEJ48 for an indefinite period of time, while their own exclusive theater is closing down. It's not clear what'll happen to the rest of the group members, who include even a top member & a team captain.

- The exclusive theater of CKG48 as well as their training & living complex are also closing down, & the group members are moving to the complex of GNZ48. One of the group members has just joined BEJ48 as a double member.

- Formal announcement clarifying the prospect of both groups is expected at an upcoming major annual concert of SNHG, in which another large-scale organizational restructuring/reshuffle will be announced &, unlike the last one affecting only SNH48 last year, will affect all the five SNHG groups this time.

Talk about the economic outlook of the country for this year. :P

The MV for a solo number by the current top-ranked member of BEJ48, released today:


Singing & dancing aren't what the young undergrad majoring in e-commerce is known best, tho - her talents are actually on music production backstage, like composing & arranging music, writing lyrics, choreographing, etc., as well as playing the electric guitar. :)
