^ In the clip you can see the tall but cute 4th-generation member as a skateboarder & a traditional Chinese opera actress, but she's actually also a fan & practitioner of otaku culture. The video editing & production planning are done by herself. :)

A nicely written news article mainly about CKG48 in English, w/ a short but also nice video report on the group w/ English subs, from a Chinese news media lately:

Born Again: China’s Girl Groups and the Life Cycle of a Stardom

Don't have the time to comment on it - just to say that the beauty of the group at present is that they, together w/ their fans, are struggling, which reminds me of the early days of AKB48 & SNH48. :)

The interim results of the current SNHG General Election have just been announced tonight:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy1g4rmf0jihkj21hc3zmhdv.jpg

May make some comments on it if/when I've got the time. :)

[EDIT]
^ Since I've got no time, outsourcing it again: ^_^'

Big names missing from the 2nd prelim results | SNH48 Today

Just to add that this' the last time the founding, 1st-generation members of SNH48, who're all in the 1st team of the group, run in an SNHG General Election, as they're gonna graduate soon w/ the expiry of their eight-year contract. Expect a number of them to do well in the final results, as they've already done so in these interim ones. :)

^ Also, the #1-ranked member returned from the last election, a member of SNH48's 3rd team (formerly 2nd team) who's also got the top position in those interim results, is set to won it again in the current election (there's no question of that, unless a really big accident would occur). According to their policy, those who's got the 1st place for two consecutive elections will be promoted to their Hall of Fame & become a solo artist under the same company, hence leaving the SNHG. I think this'll be a good thing for both the group & herself, & even long before this election her fanclub had actually been pressuring their management to arrange a dedicated team of staff for her, hence treating her like a former ace of the group who's won the top position for two consecutive elections & become a solo artist, which may be her own wish too. When that happens, the present controversies & embarrassment surrounding her relation w/ the group & other group members will immediately disappear. Even back then I'd already thought "kicking her upstairs" would be a viable, win-win solution for everyone, & now it'll happen naturally anyway. lol
