China’s SHN48 “Make AKB48 Look Even Uglier”


SHN48, China’s answer to AKB48, have lately been making waves amongst the Japanese – although so far more thanks to the undeniable impact of their photographs than the media saturation and obsessive followers which have helped make AKB48 such a “national” institution.

Charitably dismissing AKB48 as merely “orthodox” and Korea’s 2NE1 as “a plastic surgery group,” Chinese state media instead pushes the purely Chinese charms of Shanghai’s own (officially licensed sister group) SHN48 – which it patriotically praises as “both natural and moe”:





Amazingly, even creepy idol fans find them objectionable for some reason:

“Those eyes!”

“The eyes are too scary.”

“Made with Adobe’s help.”

“Can’t this lot manage to take normal pictures of themselves or what?”

“What the hell are these supposed to be?”

“Pretty extreme Photoshop usage.”

“Looks like China has chosen to use freaks for its idols too.”

“They look like love dolls…”

“Why can’t France or someone make a knock-off 48 group instead.”

“Was that Akasan I just saw at the end there…”

They have their believers even amongst the Japanese however – “They are actually super-cute!”:

    the pictures are all of the same girl (Tang Min, 1st pic is a picture of Xinfang and Tang Min), who is incidentally, the most popular girl of the group. Except for the group pic which is a picture of unsuccessful first generation applicants. SNH really are cute though

    I don't know much about Japan so i can't speak for AKB48, but I'm a Chinese (4th generation immigrant) who frequently travels to China due to my job, i will "guarantee with warranty" that these girls are all sleeping with the people who owned them(showbiz director?).

    They probably didn't only sold their bodies but prolly their soul as well if when needed.

    Thats how extreme everything is in China now, every government officers i come upon is hinting me to give them money (bribe? even when theres no reason or advantage for me doing it, they'd still make constant hints)

    As a first generation immigrant who lived in China over 20 years and lives in Australia over 5 years,I'm ashamed for you.
    Are you really can recognize today's China? Or just get the information from Falong Gong and think you have already know everything?

    says a submissive, weak-willed asian whose people are known for opening up their legs to any foreigners that step on their shores.

    You must have some self-hate issues since most asians think your people are tainted half-breed rape-products and think you funny for trying to compensate too hard )))

    AKB48 is just a money-hog scam. An imitation is even worse.

    And Got Talent, Idol, etc shows in the west aren't the same? Of course the Japanese ones cater to the creepy weirdos while western ones tend to cater to the dumbed down TV watchers.

    More creepy than cute. Although it's very impressive that they're natural. AKB48 girls don't come close to this even after going under the knife.

    Not sure if an imitation that surpass the original by this much qualify as a ripoff.

    Except a group of young girls singing is not "shamful, immoral, embarrassing, destructive", etc. thing in the world.

    They are cute and they're singing. There's nothing immoral there. Good for them. Maybe they can siphon off some money which would otherwise go to Western hacks.

    Judging by the fuckups in the rest of his sentence I doubt that. And who the fuck said I was asian? Lol dumbass. I've been called just about every ethnicity in existence on here by you retards desperately and embarrassingly attempting an insult. If you have to resort to random ethnic insults trying to guess what I am then you're pretty pathetic and stupid.
