    According the official BNK48 Facebook, I quote:

    "Important Announcement by BNK48 Committee regarding the case of Can BNK48

    According to Can's situation, the Committee has decided to impose a 1-month suspension from all BNK48 activities which will be effective from 8 May 2018."

    Someone leaked photos from her private IG (It's speculated that it was one of her friends who was jealous of her or didn't like her. It's definitely one of her private IG followers. Her private IG had less than 100 followers and she knew all of them personally). It caused quite the reaction and drama among the fans. You can check through Pantip BNK48 tagged forum threads for the fan's reactions. Also several media outlets already reported on this situation.

    The leaker sent the photos anonymously to a guy with the alias "Nor Nueay" to expose to the public.

    I think the main focus of this drama is about this photo of her having dinner in some restaurant in Singapore with her "close male friend" as several media outlets called it. It's speculated that this guy is her boyfriend judging by this photo and some other photos. Many others on Pantip forum also say the same and one media outlet used the word "boyfriend" specifically in the headline too.

    There's also another photo showing her sitting in a car with that "close male friend" too.

    Disclaimer: These photos are hosted on media outlet sites and I linked to them directly. I didn't re-upload any of them.

    But it's worth noting that 1-month suspension is imposed because she broke the rules of having unauthorized 2-shots and having private social accounts as previously mentioned by someone in this thread.

    The suspension is not because of her having a boyfriend as 48G doesn't have official "no-dating" rule. It's more of a "promise to the fans" and so it became a tradition among 48G. So obviously, many hardcore fans are furious when they found out about these photos and also because she lied to the fans by saying that she didn't have private social accounts which definitely broke the official rule (Other half of her fans aren't furious at her and are still supporting her though).


    Also, the inevitable happened. This whole thing now appears on the front page of physical newspapers and TV -

    No - Dating Rule or promise. either way its the same as far as fans are concerned. If a girl just met a guy like in a two girl two guy dinner or went to a guys birth day party, then I don't think its that big of a deal and a lite suspension is OK. However, if the girl is confirmed to have a boyfriend then she should be kicked out, AKB, BNK or any 48G. There are plenty of hard working honest girls who really want to be Idols, no need to keep the ones that lie and sneak around the fans. Besides they don't want to be Idols, they just using 48G to get famous.

    The leaked image clearly shows that the guy is her boyfriend though.

    I think BNK's case of having a boyfriend will be a lot lighter than in any Japanese groups. While the concept of "idols" and their no boyfriend rule have been around in Japan for the longest time, the concept is pretty new and foreign to people here. The majority of people definitely has been asking questions about human rights and sexual objectification and such since the case of Maysa. Even in Can's case this time, outsiders mistakenly attack the group because they thought Can was punished for having a boyfriend when actually it was the two-shots rule.

    BTW here is "I Can See Your Voice" TV program

    Thanks!

    Also yesterday, Can went to the police to report on this incident. Not sure if they will be able to sue the leaker or not. We will have to wait and see.

    ---------

    I've been reading a few threads on Pantip forum and holy hell.. 3-4 pages full of topics about this whole incident. A lot of furious reactions from fans, a lot of threads from both fans and outsiders questioning the "no-date promise" practice. And of course a lot of trolls who came out to bash BNK48 and the fans too. Lots and lots of drama and heated discussion and stupid arguments from some people too. Just reading through them I felt like my blood pressure was rising..

    I've never seen an AKB stage so I wanted to ask are they wearing old AKB costumes in those photos or are they new?
    Also can someone translate the Cafe's latest IG posts? https://www.instagram.com/bnk48cafe/
    Edit: Can't believe nobody mentioned this! BNK48 has collaborated with the brand Z-Cool for a line of hair dyes, and other hair care products!

    Basically, it just said they will limit the customer queue at 1250 customers per day and if there's any queue left when they close the shop. They will be the first in the queue at the next day.
    The leftover queue and the next queue must wait at the parking lot on the 3B floor at the location of 7a pillar. The queue will start at 9 AM.

    Due to the slow process of the cafe and SSR release for the grand opening that can be sold at auction for 20k++. People are swarming at the cafe right now. Hope it'll be better on this Monday.

    I heard the Thai Festival is one of the biggest cultural Festivals in Tokyo.

    They'll get good exposure.

    Fans of Cherprang want to make it easier for local people to vote her so this page was created.
