30 Jul

Not jpop, but this so watch-able! 48 fans will probably be see why 48Group and China broke up.

胡彦斌加盟SNH48总决选 携鸟叔、陶喆共襄盛举

SNH48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo will be happening tonight. This event will be a star-studded show with appearances from singers PSY, David Tao, Hu Yan Bin and Hunan TV host Shen Meng Chen. It will be broadcasted on Guangdong TV at 9.10pm. There will also be a live streaming on their official YouTube channel starting ~7pm.


The 3 singers will have different roles in the Sousenkyo, with PSY continuing to mentor the girls and them collaborating with him in a performance. David Tao will be writing a song for the top senbatsu while Hu Yan Bin will presenting awards to the winners.


Will top member Ju Jing Yi break Sashihara Rino’s record?

Currently placed 1st in the preliminary rankings with 120,000 votes, Ju Jing Yi aka Kiku chan will likely break Sashihara Rino’s record of 240,000 votes tonight.

She will also don a 100,000 RMB dress and transform into a “night goddess”.




1st Place: Ju Jing Yi  ~230,750 votes
2nd Place: Li Yi Tong ~170,000 votes
3rd Place: Huang Tingting ~130,000 votes

In essence, the key members of SNH48 have managed to double,triple and even quadruple their votes to reach the level AKB48 are at now, all within a year’s time. The growth of SNH48 is terrifying.

And AKS is dumb for letting them go..

    For those of us living in Rio Linda, could you explain that point?

      Sorry! I will try to explain based on my own observations. It’s a known fact that their relationship broke down because of China’s expansion into more sister groups. (They announced Shenyang48 during this Sousenkyo and we’re not even warmed up to Beijing48 and Guangzhou48 yet.)

      However, i believe another reason for their breakup is SNH48 trying to ditch AkiP’s music and move into something more appealing for the local market. This could be kpop style(judging by their transformation under the mentorship of PSY) or just Chinese songs(seeing how their next single is going to be written by stars like JJ Lin or David Tao). People in China now are hungry for overseas stars and lotsa Taiwanese/Hong Kong/Korean stars are flocking over and earning huge $$. By collaborating with these stars, SNH48 will be much more appreciated domestically.

        I agree what u say about trying new style of music will help the group to be more recognized since AKB music doesn’t appeal too much to Chinese market. However, SNH management did breach the contract they had and basically is saying they will do whatever they want with the group.

        I think AKS letting them go is more about they do not have any say in the decisions SNH management will take or the linkwith AKB. But they still will have to pay to AKS for copyright and all those stuffs.
