Get Set For JKT48 – Indonesia’s Twin Sister Group To AKB48

23 08 2011

Aki-P wants to conquer Asia with his 48 group concept and now the first step to achieving this is underway. There were rumours last week that Indonesia had announced that JKT48, an idol group based in Jakarta was going to be formed but now it’s official. The new idol group is affiliated directly with AKB48 – this is a joint project by Dentsu and AKS. Many fans are questioning whether this project is real or not as there has been no confirmation by AKS and there hasn’t been any coverage by the Japanese media.

There will be 2 auditions – one session that’s already begun yesterday (22nd) and that runs to the 26th August and the second session will be from September 5th to 16th. Those that want to participate must be between 13 – 18 years old, of Indonesian heritage, beautiful, photogenic and talented. The audition process is scheduled to run until November where a press conference is scheduled to take place if things go according to plan. I don’t know if Aki-P himself will be directly involved and fly over to Indonesia to oversee the auditions. He’ll have some input I’m sure.

What every happened to Taiwan48 which was supposed to be happening this Summer? Is that project dead or will that be the next target for Aki-P?

I wouldn’t have thought it would bother Aki-P where some one stays – as long as that person is talented that’s all that matters.
