An MV featuring the current deputy captain of SNH48's 1st team & a former captain & deputy captain of the same team, released today:


The two 1st-generation members are long-time allies & former/current core leaders of both the team & the group as a whole, & can be regarded as the "souls" of the group. :)

A pictorial report on that MV:

^ Just linking a clip of yet another song, a number from the current stage of SNH48's 2nd team, performed in that concert - this' the last one (the 10th I think) I post here, hence almost one 3rd of the over 30 numbers performed are now linked, & you may search for the rest on YouTube as I can't post all of them here:


^ The center girl is the "big brother" of the team, who's performing w/ the current captain & a prominent member of their 1st team. :)

[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] Behind-the-scenes footage from it, released today:

Sina Visitor System

Well-compiled behind-the-scenes footage from the SNHG General Election concert/event late last month, released a bit belatedly today - while being nearly half-hour long, it's nicely edited & can also be watched kinda like a summary of the whole over-five-hour thing, hence still recommended here:


The official HP for De Moon, the current latest, seven-member subgroup of SNH48, which currently contains info on their upcoming nationwide tour, their coming debut EP, their peripheral items, etc.:

SNH48 GROUP 全新7人小分队 DEMOON

^ Those horizontally scrolling pics at the bottom of the page are obviously the members of the subgroup, who include a towering popular 2nd-generation member in their parent group's 1st team (their leader), an even taller prominent 1st-generation member in the same team, the current deputy captain of the 4th team, the former captain of the old 5th team, a key member of GNZ48's 1st team who also doubles as a member of SNH48's 4th team, etc. - a fairly strong grouping. :cool:

Just a quick update: members of both the Top 16 & Under Girls (UG; #17-32) elected groups returned from the latest SNHG General Election have just flown to different overseas destinations to shoot the MVs for their respective upcoming singles. :)

^ So they're simultaneously shooting three MVs in three countries at present, w/ 32 SNHG members working in two overseas countries - now you can see the strength of their production/support staff. :oh:

The latter elected group represented SNH48 to receive the "Global Entertainer Award" at a major K-music awards event in S. Korea today - their appearance on the red carpet of the event on the same day:




[EDIT]
^ Their performing their upcoming single for the very 1st time at the event:

A cute performance of an NMB48 classic by a tall but also cute member of CKG48, who's a former member of SHY48, at their theater performance today:


Note that since they no longer have their exclusive theater, their theater performances are now held at a regular venue in their home city. :)

A beautiful footage featuring a former group ace of SNH48 who's now become a popular solo artist & is currently among the Forbes China Celebrity 100, shot while having works in a deeply inland province adjacent to Chinese Central Asia to its northwest & Tibet to its southwest:

A video of a prominent 5th-generation member in SNH48's 1st team covering a C-pop number, released by herself on her birthday today:

The former deputy captain of their old 5th team is seen as one of their next-generation leading members succeeding their 1st- & 2nd-generation members, who'll graduate in the next couple of years. :)

Finally, after seven years since their founding & their breakup w/ - hence their complete independence from - AKB48/AKBG around the middle of the same period, SNH48/SNHG will hold their very 1st theater performance tour in Japan next month, just when AKB48/AKBG's continuous decline is becoming more & more obvious, especially after some serious, eye-popping scandals in the recent years & the unprecedented cancellation of the AKBG General Election this year - a short Japanese promotion video for the tour:


^ Note that 7SENSES, their elite subgroup, will also perform in the tour, which'll also feature members from their sister groups BEJ48 & GNZ48.

While they've done various promotions of their General Election in Japan in the past & one of their former group aces has even visited the country for a special coverage by a local mag, so far they've never performed there, so this can be seen as a significant milestone in their history. :)

[EDIT]
Ah, a phototaking, signing, & peripheral-items (including ones specially produced for the tour) selling event will also be held there.

This clip is already fairly self-explanatory in its English description below it:


^ Its Japanese description also points out that it's for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC & that the movie is set in Chinese Central Asia - hence the song's ethnic music style of the region (which I like very much), even tho this cover version has a pop-style arrangement. :)

^ The plot is a lil bit creepy, but still nice & cute. :)
