More surprises comes from the new member of AKB48 family, which is JKT48. Not only they participated in the recent AKB48 version of Kohaku, but they will join their sisters to perform in the annual NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. JKT48 and HKT48 will perform as backdancers for their senpai who will sing a medley consist of their hit songs like Kaze wa fuiteru - Flying Get - Everyday Kachuusa. A total of 210 members of the 48 family will be on the Kohaku stage, performing and showing their support for Japan.
Check out their rehearsal pic below! (those pink arrows and names are for JKT48 members, fyi):
AKB48 members also said that next summer 2012, TPE48 is scheduled to be launched in Taipei-Taiwan, as another expansion of the 48 family to overseas. Well, the stage isn't gonna get smaller, isn't it? Good luck to the girls ^^
thanks to the tips of chibishun
So, that's why they're still in Japan and having rehearsals there. Go and make us proud, girls!
I'll love this year Kohaku more and more <3
