12 members of SDN48, (short for Saturday Night 48), were in Singapore last week for their first overseas concert. The Japanese idol girl group, created and produced by Yasushi Akimoto, is a sister group to the massively successful AKB48 (currently Japan’s most popular idol group sensation).
Famous for their concept of being “idols you can meet”, the girls posed for photos at the Merlion Park before heading to Orchard to personally hand out flyers of their concert and to sell their concert tickets to the public on the streets.

I think the kid is too young to go for a SDN48 concert. ^^;
Among the 12 girls who came to town, I think I like Kondo Sayaka the most. She speaks fluent English. ^^;
Have been a long time since I attended a concert. The last concert I have been to was for the S.H.E/动力火车 (Power Station) 8 years ago. Frankly speaking I enjoyed myself at the SDN48 concert. All the girls are very nice and approachable. And they are not afraid to speak in their less than perfect English on stage. ^^; And the fans are real sporting as well, singing together and cheering to their songs.
All in all, looking forward to their next performance. kudos to everyone involved in this project. Check out their song below.
