SNH48 debuts in Shanghai with a live event


On December 12, AKB48s sister group, the Shanghai-based SNH48, made their debut in Shanghai.

In their first ever live performance on the night of January 12, the group performed AKB48s hit song Heavy Rotation in Chinese. More than 500 fans, some of them standing, greeted the group with loud screams. The 24 members spoke at their press conference about their aspirations with, In order to make SNH48 a super group, we will all try our best.

This spring, SNH48s own theater will open in Shanghai and the group will also hold handshake events in several locations. SNH48 is the second AKB48 sister group outside of Japan after Jakarta-based JKT48.

According to the groups agency,Miyazawa Sae (22) and Suzuki Mariya (21) who transferred from AKB48, did not appear publicly, because, They have not yet received their visas (to do their entertainment activities in China.)

AKB48 is popular among youth in China and 38,000 girls applied to become SHN48 members. The 24 members of the group were selected during open auditions from 5 cities in China.

Check out a few video clips and photos from the event below.
