Southeast Asian Girl Groups Battle: MNL48 vs SGO48 vs JKT48 vs BNK48

If Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam have rising boy groups of their own, will the girls be left behind? When it comes to girl groups, these are the same four countries in Southeast Asia that can represent in the global idol scene.

In 2005, Yasushi Akimoto formed a girl group with “idols you can meet” concept and it became a phenomenon in Japan when it comes to record and concert ticket sales. Because of its success, Akimoto has expanded the AKB48 concept to 8 countries including four in Southeast Asia namely MNL48 of the Philippines, BNK48 of Thailand, JKT48 of Indonesia, and SGO48 of Vietnam. These four girl groups are currently making waves in their respective countries. Let’s meet each group.

BNK48, Thailand

BNK48 debuted on June 2, 2017 with the single “Yak Cha Dai Phop Thoe.” The group, which was named after the capital city of Bangkok, currently has 43 active members. Their biggest hit was “Koisuru Fortune Cookie” with 182,680,673 views on YouTube. They recently formed a sister group called CGM48 which represents the city of Chiang Mai.

    i actually watched all the videos and i can say bnk48 is on a different level even tho they are under the same ent agency

    Tama ka dyan po pero sa totoo po mas maraming fans ang natuwa sa MV ng MNL48 sa Hightension kaya po mas marami ang view nila kase po meron na po silang 2M mahigit na subscriber kesa sa MNL48 na meron palang 157k subscriber kaya po mas marami ang view talaga po nila at salamat po kase nag karoon ka pong time para tignan ren ang ibang sister group ng MNL48 maraming salamat po.

    sa totoo lng..mas magaling at havey tlaga ang bnk48..kita nmn sa #of views nung high tension version nila even na huli pa silang nag release kesa mnl48

  5. Good Afternoon Voters! I hope matapos na ang clash dito. May away pa kasing napapadpad dito. To “IstandwithMNLoves” at sa iba pang mga galit na fans. Tandaan natin na ang ating mga sinusuportahang grupo ay are STANDING FOR PEACE. Kaya sana kung may toxic fans, you shouldn’t be toxic like them. A single fan don’t represent the whole fandom. Don’t generalize. Pagtawag sa ibang fandom na BANDWAGON? MAY HIDDEN AGENDA? Like what? Talagang there’s no end for this fanwar if those are the terms. At sa mga nanunumbat ng vote, really? Sigurado hindi ganyan ang pinopromote na attitude ng idols ninyo. Pede tayong mag express ng opinion pero sana wag ng mag-add ng shade o insulto. Voting ang labanan hindi ang isa’t-isa. Boboto ka ba o Mang-aaway ka? Choose Wisely!

  11. Ngayon ko lang pinanuod BNK48. Infairness mas masarap sila panuorin kesa sa MNL48 na pebebeDogs. Hahaha!

    Tara power vote for BNK48!

  12. Nagvovote rn ako dito pero di nagcocomment…. Sa totoo lng minsan mas matagal pa ako dto keysa sa poll ng boys kasi mas malaki ung gap doon…. As an A’Tin sorry sa mga sinabi ng mga kapatid nmin especially sa mga bigti na yon…. Di talaga maiiwasan ung mga hate comments minsan sa dalawang fandoms…. And oo kusa kaming tumulong dto so what’s with the
    “hidden agenda” “nagkalat sa comment section para mas mukang mas marami” marami ring A’Tin na di lng nagcocomment katulad ko…. This is my first time….
    Ps: di ko sinusumbat ung tulong ko…. If may mga A’Tin mn na ganun ung nasabi then wag niyo pong lahatin….Yun lng and thank you so much rn po sa mga tulong niyo para faves nmin…

  13. IstandwithMNLoves // April 22, 2020 at 7:44 pm //

    Marami din namang mnloves ang bumoto,hindi lang talaga nagcocomment.Mga feeling entitled,nagpasalamat na nga kami ilang beses ba dapat?may hidden agenda pala kayo eh,tutulong kayo,magkakalat kayo sa comment section para sabihin na malaki ang tinulong nyo samin.Galing manumbat,anong alam nyo sa issue na yun?mga bandwagon lang naman kayo,sabihan nyo na din yung mga co-a’tin nyo na tigilan mga suicide jokes nila,hindi nakakatuwa.Kung ayaw nyo ng bumoto feel free to leave,dahil in the first place hindi kami nagmakaawa sa inyo.Tutulong kayo pero manunumbat kayo,no thanks.Next time wag kayong tutulong kung ganyan kayo,akala nyo naman hindi kami bumoto eh majority din naman ng votes samin nanggaling.

  14. Hindi po galing sa MNLoves yung inorganic na word isa po syang multi fan,it’s so happen na fan din sya ng mnl48. This is just a big misunderstanding sana naman humupa na.

  15. Anonymous // April 22, 2020 at 4:02 pm //

    Yung tinulungan na para sa voted pero ang kakapal padin ng muka ng ibang MNLoves na sabihing hindi kailangan ang tulong namen. Like wtf!
    Ikaw ma tinulungan ikaw pa nag mataas. Ganyan ba ka cancer MNLoves?

    Please enlighten me.

    Both fandom are not perfect, di maiwasang may immature tlaga. Iwasan nlng makisali instead awatin at pagsabihan nlng. Kasi hanggat may sinasabi ang isa, may sasagot tlaga kasi iba iba tayo ng personality. Hindi lahat ng A’tin at ndi lahat ng Mnloves mature. Awat na. Ok na ei. Peace na sana tas may ganito na naman, ang sarap na nga sana nagkakatulongan na both fandom kaso masisira na naman dahil sa isang fan. Wag mo hahayaan myghad.

  18. Stan48G&46G // April 22, 2020 at 7:45 am //

    Yung issue na nagyari is misunderstanding lang talaga,yung mnlove na yun army din sya at nagsalita sya bilanga ARMY.Walang kinalaman ang fandom namin pero dinrag nyo na MNL48 kaya syempre napasugod na din yung ibang mnloves.Ang problema dito yung iba sa inyo hindi sinuway yung a’tin na yun,nakipag sabayan pa kayo sa mga SUICIDE jokes nya.Actually pwede naming kasuhan yung memevice_sb19 na yun dahil nagpopromote sya ng self-harm or suicide pati na yung mga taong involved.Thank you sa votes nyo ha,salamat talaga pero hindi nyo kailangang isampal samin yun.Kung hindi bukal sa loob nyong tumulong edi wag,mag focus nalang kayo sa idols nyo.Sa lahat ng mga votes nyo,maraming salamat po.Actually hindi naman important yung poll na to,sistergroups po silang lahat at nasa iisang pamilya lang sila,ang 48G.As a wota/fangirl,sinusuportahan ko silang lahat.

  21. Ace very well said👏👏
    Sa mga pasaway at immature na A’TIN dyan linga kayo at kokotongan ko kayo. GG nyo ako eh. Always remember what Pinuno said nga diba,nakakapagod na ulit ulitin. Sana tapusin na ang nonsense na isyu na to okay:) wag na dagdagan at Wag tayo magbilangan ng tulong dahil hindi kayo pinilit at nagkusa kayo.

    Nag-umpisa lang to sa opinyon ng isang tao, nilahat niyo na ang boung fandom nila. Wag ganun aking kapatid, alabyu padin😘

    Misunderstanding lang yon kasi yung taong yon is a fan of another big kpop fandom and is a fan too of MNL48.We know that some fan of the big kpop fandom called you inorganic? Kaya po kami nadamay is dahil yung taong nagsabi non is a fan of MNL48 ren kaya nag ka misunderstanding ren. It has been settled na eh.We really appreciated your votes guys. Marami rin na MNLoves na naboto sainyo pero hindi po kasi sila pala comment eh. Kakabisita ko lang po dun sa inyo. I have voted again. If ayaw nyong botohin ang MNL48 it is okay choice nyo naman yon eh.If we dissapointed you, my bad. I really don’t why we are always in a fan war? We should think maturely and kung alam natin hindi sya nakakabuti sa both idols natin bakit pa papatulan diba? Kitang kita nila ang kalat natin guys HAHA. Mamimiss rin natin tong mga ganito na laging may fanwars pero magsisisi parin tayo sa huli. Always spread love nalang po ha? P-pop rise!

  23. Hi A’TIN and MNLoves. I both support SB19 and MNL48. Fanboy actually. I hope we can all see that the ones winning this clash, are the bashers only. If we all really support PPOP and value friendship we should not be influenced by a single fan who don’t even really represent the whole fandom and it’s ethics. Hindi dapat sinisisi sa grupo o sa fandom, A’TIN man o MNLoves kundi sa bashers na proclaiming as supporters pero mga obsessed lang talaga. Yung pinangangalagaan na pagkakasundo nasisira mga kuyz. Prove that you are worthy supporters kasi kahit ang ating mga sinusuportahan hindi gusto ang nonsense na away na’to. Yung mga Idol Groups walang problema sa isa’t-isa pero yung fans nag-gigiyera. Let’s Practice comprehension, maturity and forgiveness. Boboto pa rin ako. Kasi nga PPOP RISE!❤

  24. iMiNLove48 // April 21, 2020 at 8:47 pm //

    Hi A’tin. I was summoned here kasi may gulo palang nangyayari. Una po, we never asked you guys to help us out here. Kusa po kayong tumulong and we’re really thankful for that. I can’t even count how many times we’ve said thank you to you and even the girls showed you their gratitude. Ang sakit naman pong mabasa na ang kapal ng mukha namin and kung pwede lang mabawi yung votes while it was just a misunderstanding? So all this time po pala yung inaakala naming tulong from you ay utang na loob pala? I have explained na po sa iba ninyong ka-fandom and they understood na WALA PONG KINALAMAN ANG MNL48/MNLOVES SA ISSUE NYO BETWEEN ARMY. Nagkataon lang na multifandom/mnloves din yung kaaway nyo kaya akala nyo kami nanaman ang tumitira which is not. I will always remember your help here. Kung masama pa rin loob nyo after I clear things out, please stop voting na from here. Again, thank you for everything all this time. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nakakaunawa. Keep safe sa covid 19 guys. I still love you all 😘

  25. A’Tin doon kayo sa site natin magkalat hindi dito parang bata .tulungan nyo kami don kesa makipag away kayo dito.

  26. A'tin po ako // April 21, 2020 at 6:24 pm //

    sorry pero pls wag sana nating isingil ung votes na inambag natin?….Misunderstanding lang yon and remember ppop rise? Okay lng nmn it’s your choice if u choose na magstop sa pagvote dto but please choose your words nicely and no hate… Alabyu guys…
    Always choose to be kind and spread love😘
    Ps: tumutulong rn sila sa poll natin

    Uhmm… di ko alam kung anong ganap dito the past few days and it seems na may onting misunderstanding ang both fandoms… kung may nasabi mang whatever ang A’tin sa kabilang fandom, ako na po nagsosorry… at ung ibang A’tin naman na tinamad na bumoto dito dahil sa nangyari, its your choice na po pero i hope magkabatibati rin and let’s always support P-pop for the sake of the music industry here in the Philippines

    A’Tin iwasan ang pagbabanggit ng tulong natin para sa MNLoves alalahanin niyo tinutulungan din nila tayo,una akong napunta dito pagkatapos kong makita mga MNLoves na ng vote para sa SB sa starmometer kaya iwasan yang pagbibilang ng tulong hindi maganda.

    Hala natatakot ako MNLoves ako pero hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari pero kahit anong mangyari ay ipapangako ko na isa akong MNLoves na labis na nag papasalamat sa A’TIN sa mga ginawa niyo para makalamang dito sa poll na ito at sana pasensiyahan niyo na kung ano yung mga sinabe ng mga co-MNLoves ko ako na ang hihingi ng sorry kahit hindi ko alam kung ano ang mga nangyari.
