Geez we already have Hashtags and GirlTrends, do we need more?

Some of the girls have some promise though.

I think pang-International raw ang MNL48 kase in the future pwede silang mag-perform kasama ng AKB48 at mga sister groups nito.

Yung unti-unting nagku-quit ang ilan sa mga MNL48 members dahil sa maraming dahilan, sana hindi na lang sila sumali o nag-audition in the first place.

'O pag-ibig, fortune cookie': MNL48 performs catchy new single on 'It's Showtime'

"Huwag kalimutang ngumiti," sang the members of MNL48, as they appeared on "It's Showtime" this Friday. It may be simple advice, translated from the original 2013 AKB48 hit "Koi Suru Fortune Cookie," but it's one that is usually forgotten.

Feeling happy can often start with a simple smile — and that's what MNL48 is trying to remind people with their new single.

While their last release, the ballad "Talulot ng Sakura," was more introspective, in that the girls were looking to try and encourage each other amid tough times, "Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie" marks a return to their fan-centric approach.

The disco-inspired song features an easy-to-do dance, no doubt enticing their supporters to make their own version of it. The music video, in fact, features random people mimicking their steps.

"Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie" is MNL48's third single.

The group is looking to emulate the success of AKB48 when they released "Koi Suru Fortune Cookie," which sold more than 1 million copies on its first day and inspired a dance craze that swept Japan.

As of writing, the music video has already passed 300,000 views — their fastest single to cross that milestone.

The "Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie" CD will be available for purchase on Lawson branches starting Saturday, and will come with tickets to shake hands with the girls at a future event.

Japanese idol group AKB48 will join its six sister groups, including MNL48, in their first-ever joint concert to be held at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on January 27, 2019.

The concert, titled AKB48 Group Asia Festival 2019, is presented by Chinese game publisher Shanda Games and will showcase AKB48 together with MNL48, Indonesia’s JKT48, Thailand’s BNK48, Taiwan’s AKB48 Team TP, China’s AKB48 Team SH and Vietnam’s SGO48.

Each group will have ten of its members performing in the concert, except for BNK48 which will have 16 members. AKB48 will be represented by Yui Yokoyama, Juri Takahashi, Nana Okada, Mion Mukaichi, Yui Ogiri, Miu Shitao, Rin Okabe, Narumi Kuranoo, Satone Kubo and Megu Taniguchi.

MNL48 for its part is fielding its Senbatsu members Abby, Brei, Coleen, Faith, Gabb, Jem, Mari, Rans, Sela and Sheki for the concert, which will be the group’s first overseas performance.

The event is divided into two parts. The first part will include various activities such as High-5 event with all the groups, mini-performances by each group, Dress-Like-AKB booth, costume museum, food stalls and more.

The second part will be the joint concert by AKB48 and its overseas sister groups which will start at 07:00pm Bangkok time.

According to the event website, tickets for the event will cost from 1,800 to 4,000 Thai baht (around 2,900 to 6,500 Philippine pesos) and is currently sold online through the EventPop website.

For more information and other details, you may visit the official event website at akb48asiafes.com.
 
AKB48 was formed in 2005 as “idols you can meet”, which regularly hosts events, where fans can interact with its members, including taking pictures or shaking hands.

Since then, they have been one of the most successful girl groups in the world, and releasing several singles and albums which are being sold in millions worldwide.

The idol group currently holds the Guinness Book of World Records for Largest Pop Group, which was set in March 2013.

The idol group has expanded to several sister groups in Japan, which are SKE48 (Sakae, Nagoya), NMB48 (Namba, Osaka), HKT48 (Hakata, Fukuoka), and NGT48 (Niigata).

Their first overseas expansion was JKT48, which is based in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta, in 2011. Shanghai-based SNH48 was followed the following year, but the AKB48 Group had suspended (and eventually ended) its partnership in June 2016 due to a contract violation and remove its references on their website.

The group has now expanded to several East Asian countries since 2016, which are BNK48 based in Bangkok, MNL48 based in Manila, AKB48 Team SH based in Shanghai, AKB48 Team TP (formerly known as TPE48) based in Taipei, and SGO48 based in Saigon.

The group will soon launch MUM48, which is an idol group based in Mumbai, India.
