    Because Toyota pretends Tochigi doesn't exist in Eito's prefecture map (or pretends it's invaded by Hyundai/Kia? lol) :fear:

    But hey, they can borrow Oshima Yuko until Eito's contract ends :hehe:

    Fromis_9's Jang Gyuri popped up during Saho's Showroom streaming. (Around 20:00 mark)

    If you watched Produce 48 you might remember Gyuri was a contestant in the show and, her and her group belonged to the same agency to IZ*One, Off The Record.

    It was speculated the location was AKS office as an interpreter was present.

    Fromis_9 supposedly was gearing for Japanese debut. Its member visiting AKS office and allowed to show up next to AKB's member suggested AKS would promote this group in Japan too, just like IZ*One. And, this meant AKS and Off The Record had developed partnership beyond just IZ*One. (Currently, Off The Record has 2 groups under its wings, Fromis_9 and IZ*One and has some female trainees who are learning Japanese.)

    This partnership possibly doesn't end with just AKS promoting Off The Record's girls in Japan, Off The Record may bring 48 to Korea in 1 way or another.

    Since Fromis_9 has no tie to 48 sorority, will this be the first time AKS promoting a group whose songs aren't written by Akimoto?

    Fromis_9 is not that super popular in Korea. Given that how much the privilege Iz*One get when they are being manage by AKS in Japan, it is quite smart move for OTR to extend the partnership beyond the Iz*One and towards permanent group like Fromis_9 (and extending Han Sung Soo dream).

    Nuest used to have subgroup Nuest M when they promote in China with addition of one Chinese member. OTR can have same arrangement with Fromis_9. Fromis_9 can have subgroup in Japan like Fromis_16 or something with the addition of 48G members which is the former of Produce48 contestants. It is basically a win win situation without any radical adjustment.

    Hoo, boy. Now you've gone and done it. You planted the seed so now I'm going to be dreaming of this.

    I would love to see them make a subunit like this and add, say, Miu, Miru, Sae, Erii, and Saho. I choose them since they're close in age to the current Fromis members (except for Saho, but it *was* her stream) and would suit their concepts. I'm not a huge fan of Fromis or anything, but they have some decent songs that would suit 48 group girls so I'd be very much into it.

    But, what may they gain from Fromis? The group is mid-tier, aren't gonna making bank. These girls already got good exposure and a level of popularity in Japan. And, since the idea was they joining only Japanese activities, their presence won't be acknowledged by non-Japanese fans 'coz the Japanese' copyright exercise. Fromis doesn't seem to be much of a boost for their careers.

    What if additional members are less popular 48 girls? How big of helps can they be to the group?

    You brought up about it was Saho's streaming, the in-my-face detail I was oblivious to. Could it be a special meaning to this? Someone at AKS office told Gyuri to invade Saho's streaming I guess. Gyuri aware Saho was streaming and she thought Showroom was similar to V Live. The voice of IZ*One or Fromis might be heard in V Live videos of the other but they never barged in unless invited. Also, Saho seemingly was shocked but not panic to Gyuri sudden appearance in her streaming. 48 girls couldn't let non 48/non AKS person, unless their family members, present in their streaming, right? So, Saho should be panic as Gyuri should not seen with her, right? So, she was already aware Fromis related to AKS, huh?

    It's not as if there was never any 1 shot collaboration with another idol group in the past, so why not ?

    In case some wonder how to play this game, I found this:

    Who was the longest serving Kenkyuusei? I remember it being just more than 3 years but I don't remember who the member was. Honma Mai will be approaching the 3 year mark soon. Wanted to know when she breaks the record.

    It's over five years if you include sister groups. From the wiki:

    Matsumura Kaori

    Joined SKE48 as a Kenkyuusei on November, 2009. She decided to remain a Kenkyuusei as a "Lifetime Honorary Kenkyuusei" from April 13, 2013 (SKE48 Team Shuffle) to March 26, 2015, when she was promoted.

    Kaotan being a kks was kind of a long running joke though. For the legit longest kks I'd say it could be NMB 2nd gens like Nishizawa Rurina or Uno Mizuki who were kks for almost 4 years.

    Ex-SKE's Inuzuka Asana should be slightly longer than these two (Sep. 30, 2010 - Aug. 4, 2014 vs May 11, 2011 - Feb 4, 2015). Afaik she was always number two after Kaotan

    Was there a particular reason for her long tenure as a KKS? Not enough graduations in SKE? Not enough experience?
