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.
