[Re: The last post on the preceding page] A private video shot by the famous identical-twins members of GNZ48, featuring many interesting behind-the-scenes footage from both the concert & that event, which're all shot from their own POV:


^ While they're still pretty young, they look even younger than their actual age in both their appearance & way of speaking, as if they're tweenies. XD

[EDIT]
Pls refer to the description of the clip:

The ten best moments of the top dancer of SNH48's 1st team (currently ranked #7, hence being a "God 7" member), who's also a member of their elite subgroup 7SENSES, in this year, as selected by a fan:


^ Have you spotted Luna in the clip? :luna: (On her T-shirt. :wink: ) Apparently the towering 1st-generation member is also a Sailor Moon fan, like many of her group-/team-mates. lol

I seldom, if at all, post about former members of the SNHG groups here, except for a former group ace of SNH48 (who's actually still under the same management company of those groups - as a solo artist of that company), but here's another exception now: a former captain of that group's 3rd team, who's currently studying at a university in Britain - a pic of her shot over there & posted by herself today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/0072o1Vygy1gacqyhffjpj31og2iokjm.jpg

The 3rd-generation member has no relations w/ the group now, except for still being friends w/ her former group-/team-mates & (albeit rarely) posting about the group - this post is just a personal interest & all. :p

^ Some huge photos featuring prominent members of BEJ48's 2nd team at a large-scale handshaking, phototaking, & signing event jointly held by SNH48, BEJ48, & GNZ48 yesterday on the next day of the concert & in that same provincial capital where the concert was held:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly1ga5sgihamoj33gg56o4qq.jpg

^ The charismatic "fashion queen" of the team.

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly1ga5sgxeh8nj33gg56ob2a.jpg

^ The multi-talented ace of the team.

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006c99bxly1ga5sgs9p85j33gg56ox6p.jpg

^ The current captain of the team.

They're all donning stage uniforms of the team. :)
You can get some glimpses of that event from this clip shot & then uploaded yesterday by a Japanese fan:


It's actually just a medium-scale to medium-large-scale event of its kind jointly held by the SNHG groups, not really the biggest one, since so many members of those groups other than GNZ48 (the group based in the provincial capital) weren't present. :)

An official footage of a fan-meeting event at the exclusive theater of GNZ48 just lately, attended by some top members of the SNHG groups to promote their new spring single, which's also rendered by those members & played in the background:


[EDIT]
Behind-the-scenes footage of CKG48 members having a tour concert at a nearby provincial capital in the same southwestern region recently, uploaded as a vlog by one of them days ago - I seldom link vlogs of SNHG members here, but this member looks so cute in this one, which's also shot & edited/post-produced by her in a pretty cute way: =^_^=


^ They take the plane even tho it's just a city nearby. lol

Quick update: an official junior version of the SNHG groups, JNR48 ("JNR" standing for "junior"), is to be formed & they're now recruiting young girls aged 6-14 for it, which members are also intended to be reserves for the other SNHG groups. :oh:

Pls refer to the description of the clip:


As mentioned in the clip, the 4th-generation member is currently an undergrad at the prestigious Shanghai Film Academy of the University of Shanghai, w/ a focus on production management subjects, which offer more flexible times for her works as a member of &, especially, a team's captain in SNH48. :)

Some prominent members from various SNHG groups performing a famous stage number of SNH48's 4th team w/ a male rap duo yesterday for the annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival held at the capital of a northeastern province bordering Russia:


^ That stage uniform is one of their most military-styled ones, originally worn by the 3rd team of SNH48. :)

[EDIT]
^ Their walking the red carpet of that event before the above performance:

^ Ah, they included the current captains of SNH48's 1st team & GNZ48's 2nd team, respectively, as well as the "sexy queen" of the former team & the top vocalist of the latter team. Also, that uniform actually includes a pretty cool-looking, dress-uniform-style trench coat, but they didn't wear it because it features the emblem of SNH48's 3rd team - in fact, no member of that team was present at the event at all. lol

^ Just in case, those back-dancers aren't members of the group, but are provided by the TV station.

[EDIT]
^ Four CKG48 members taking you to look around various spots of that city, which's also their home city, w/ a host of the TV station on the show:


^ They even meet an American who speaks fluent Mandarin during their brief tour around the deeply inland city, :oh: the wealth & living standard of which are coming closer to those of the more affluent coastal cities these days.

As a well-known mainstream, all-round solo artist nowadays, she's become the most successful example for the members of the SNHG groups to look up to & follow. :)

[EDIT]
Behind-the-scenes footage featuring the mature-looking "sexy queen" of SNH48's 1st team & the much younger quarter-German (of Jewish origin) member of the same group's 3rd team, from a shooting related to the Lunar New Year:
