    How are their sales? I didn't knew Taiwan had a subunit until recently even though I often follow Taiwan entertainment.
    Being low budget is better though because their potential is limitless once more people get to know them:banana:

    Though I don't know how big is the market for Taiwan pop nowadays with kpop around.
    Honestly speaking Team SH seems to have a bigger potential than Team TP since they are targeting China market which is very much bigger in size compared to Taiwan...
    Although China music production seems to pale in comparison to Taiwan based on my personal biased opinion.
    I used to follow Taiwan pop a lot back in the days when they have many interesting rock/pop band music.
    Nowadays it is so rare to find good and happy music..

    Also I have posted the English translation of their 4 singles on lyrics translate below.
    [勇往直前, TTP Festival, 櫻花瓣, 綠草地上的奇蹟] : https://lyricstranslate.com/en/akb48-team-tp-lyrics.html

    Would be easier for newer English casual fans if they want to find out the lyrics of their songs in the upcoming Shanghai festival.
    Also better if a English/Mandarin bilingual speaker help to proofread it too, thanks in advance.

    I can also try to translate the lyrics for their future singles as long the chinese lyrics is provided. Enjoy~

    They sold 6000 copies for the 2nd singles in the first week
    When I ordered 2nd singles, the clerk told me that they sold twice the amount of the previous
    but I dont think there's a huge growth in fan base. people are just buying more copies

    they growing up steadily only for the Taiwan market....it seems like they don't want to have fight with team SH in the mainland China for the moment.

    the strategy is very great... all the effort in the domestic to gain popularity

    It is hard to sale in mainland China since their sales depends on handshaking event and its not convenient for China fan to attend.
    There're lots of Hong Kong fans though

    Ultimately the whole business model is to target domestic market, as long there is constant fans from all over China to attend their theatre/concerts or live streaming, they can do well.
    With China getting rich now, there are a lot of rich fans around that can easily spend support a few members of the group if they find any members worth supporting.
    A few super rich fans is enough to support or many well to do fans can easily a whole group to be honest.

    Meanwhile its slightly disadvantageous with TP, with the China-Taiwan cross straits relations now and Taiwan pop culture isn't not like 10 years back when they have many well known bands.
