    Oh my gosh so the Izurina rumours were true!
    General Manager too!!!!!

    Congratulations to both of them, and Captain Aom! That's amazing!
    Really looking forward to their group :)

    With Deenee graduating, that leaves BNK with exactly 48 members :D

    There is a rumour going around currently in facebook that a former MNL48 member has applied for CGM48.

    That wouldn't surprise me to much because if you don't follow MNL, or just don't remember they recruited 64 members for their 1st Gen and had over 50 members at the time of their 2nd General Election. Before the election it was announced that whoever didn't get into the Top48 would be fired/forced to graduate. When that came out A LOT of BNK fans reached out and told the girls that if they got fired that they could apply to BNK's 3rd Gen audition(this was before way CGM was announced). It would be really great if some of the girls took them up on that offer, and I think management wouldn't mind either.

    I saw a screenshot of 2 MNL48 members posting about CGM48 on twitter, but I can't find it anymore.
    I can't remember who it was and they probably already deleted it.

    Seems there were over 100 foreigners who auditioned for CGM48, with there being some ex-MNL48 Member auditions

    https://twitter.com/littleDUck_N/status/1148967378874593281?s=20

    I could see there being a good amount of foreigners making it, and could definitely see at least 2-3 MNL girls getting in

    I think BNK48 were suppose to hold auditions in Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos for their 3rd generation. So maybe CGM will end up having members from those countries as well

    It was a discussion what concept would CMG took. Of course, CMG needs a different concept to BNK and fans expected CMG to pick up the concept of 1 of Japanese sister groups. Fans' wishful thinking is HKT but, Rina and Aom underlined the group would be performance-oriented and the practice would be tougher. Fans guess CMG may mainly cover SKE's songs. I don't understand why NMB is dismissed as I think NMB also has energetic routines and some of them are not easy.

    In my opinion, a possible outcome is none of the above, CMG may just cover any song of more powerful routine from any sister group. It may cover all of "Uza", "Kamonegix", "Escape" and even "Ai Juseyo".

    By the way, Rina and Aom will join the panel to select the member of CGM (although their voices may not as loud as older panelists). Some said CGM would not be able to execute tougher SKE's routines as the average age of applicants were younger, half of them were 12-14 years old. But, in my opinion, the member selection needs not to follow the applicant ratio. The panel does not have to pick many under 15 members simply because most applicants are from this age range and, the group can have 10% of its members foreigners even though foreign applicants make up of just 3%. Besides, not like girls under 15 can't dance/sing.

    Job and members said the transfer of Rina was a promotion to let her grow beyond just a member.

    I think the minimum age requirement should be lifted to 15 up. From my observation, fans tend to like 17+ members. 15 means 2 years to grow to the shine-able age which is a reasonable period. 12 means 5 years which is too long and quite a waste of budget and time for the agency.

    There is a concurrent person, Aeh will be also the music director of CGM and he revealed he was writing the lyric of the debut song for CGM and it would incorporate northern dialect.

    Some missing info
    - Unlike Job, Shihainin Rina won't have the power to decide the member line-up for each single (senbatsu). The decision will be made at the BNK Office headquarter in Bangkok.
    - Every members must live in the dorm so it will be convenience for training and transportation (from residence to working venue).

    Ok. This just became more exciting! Lol. I can't wait to see what comes out of this sister group! That image welp posted is so cute! Lol. I hope that this group will cover more of Japan's sister group songs, much like others have posted here. Was there any other International Sister Group that mostly covered Japan's Sister Group songs?

    JKT48 have a couple, 2 of them being A-sides.

    MNL48 recently had Igai Ni Mango, which is an SKE48 song.

    So CGM48 having sister group releases could definitely happen.
