Rehearsals for IWant ASAP
just stumbled upon this long chained post on socmedia. Coincidentally it's her birthday and coming of age. A lot of revealing stuff behind the scenes about what Kay's has been going through. There are some that is too much information even for a superfan (unless she's giving inside info to her FC) that insiders would only know so wondering if it is a co-member, close friend, relative or surprisingly even Kay herself who posted this.. I hear some members create burner accounts secretly nowadays so who knows.
"it's not that easy to be a kaede-oshi in that it's not easy to learn all the hardwork she does behind the scenes, when no one--not mgmt nor fellow members--would ever credit her
thus, no fan outside of her core FC and the so-called elitists with their inside info would know
how Team L manages to always be the most disciplined team coz she'd stay up late preparing their schedules
how she'd stay behind for members who find themselves late to practice so she could teach them the steps
how she ended up taking care of another team for some time due to certain--understandable--circumstances
how she taught japanese pro bono to some members because they needed it
how she serves as an interpreter on top of her duties as a team captain and idol
how she was hurt when there was an audition in front of some japanese reps and she was translating for them but when she went up to take her turn they were like, "oh wait you're auditioning, too?" coz apparently she wasnt introduced as an idol member of the group
how once when her japan delegation had to function without the producer and talent head, she stepped in to take care of their itinerary and rewrite the program for a meeting she had not expected to lead
how she was tasked to add the accents everyone hated so much
how she has final say on song translations because yes, the mothership does check the translation, and without her help they usually come back for revisions
but how all these are shat on while she doesnt get extra pay
how it's ppl outside the group who would mention how she helped so much during filming or how they catch her being so busy backstage
how even when they say she did really well in the auditions but only always place her at the last row like an afterthought
she does a lot of work outside of being an idol without the extra pay. and she doesnt get the respect and credit afforded by being just a team captain
instead, ppl even had the gall to write her off as an alaga (pushed member or favorites)
it's hard coz no one talks about her coz she isnt as active in fishing people nor does she post much content
how could she? when she has so much on her plate that she stays up late working. she hasnt even had time to exercise lately and she's being criticised for gaining weight
#MNL48 Kay deserved more. especially today, her most important coming-of-age birthday.
she deserves more than this. she deserves all the love and the credit and better treatment. hasnt she earned it?
this has been a #CapKayDay"
iWant ASAP High Tension Full Performance
Wow! I never would've guessed that Kaede does so much. I know she helped with Igani Mango, but damn. She doesn't just deserve higher pay, but a promotion cause it sounds like she takes over for roles that management should be hiring other people to do, and ends up even doing other people's jobs for them. Happy Birthday Kay!
MNL48: Team MII Concert Highlights
Update: So those costumes are for their Halloween Photo Card Sets.. finally it all made sense.
Team NIV Concert Highlights
They did release a graphic on their store and official pages about the Halloween Photocards with sample photos featuring Jem, Alyssa, and Jaydee.
It's Team L's turn.
Jem, Dana, Sela, and Jamie (Team 1) won the MNL48 Pokemon Sword and Shield Tournament and they won a trip to Singapore (care of Pokemon) to visit the Pokemon Center. Second place was Shaina, Gabb, Laney, and Aly (Team 4). Third place were Abby, Belle, Amy, Yssa (Team 2) and Sheki, Dian, Coleen, Cole (Team 3). I hope they get more of this kind of appearances in the future.
Wait, are they working together with Pokemon official? If so then it's cool, I wonder why Pokemon official in Indo didn't work together with JKT?
They were a guest in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Launching Event here, they performed around 8 songs I think plus a free meet and greet (Hi-touch style without the hi-touch). A representative from Pokemon Japan awarded them the prize after the tournament.
for those who missed it, O'Taco Bites channel also recorded the full game part of the event and their performances:
(actually starts ~23:00)
I feel like MNL has been doing better than before. They seem to be getting more work which is great.
I'll know they've really made it once they get commercials
Here's hoping lol *fingers crossed*
MNL48 Full Performance NIGHT Performance Robinsons Magnolia
Best Kumu live so far yesterday with Jaydee and Daryll, the member cameos at the end part and their own fanchanting version are out of control. Sheki's singing prowess is just WoW!
Have a question to all MNL loves
Does MNL48 part of the station I.d.
Of abs cbn?
Wonder what this is?
Also, apparent rumor no 3rd Gen (yet).
Based on reddit no auditions for 3rd gen next year.
I hope everything goes well for MNL with this audition.
