Members of the famous all-girls “idol” group BNK48 are scheduled to call on Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha at Government House on Tuesday.

 

The meeting is part of a public relations event to promote the Public Relations Department’s Happy Family Radio project, which aims to attract younger listeners to its radio station, FM 105 MHz.

 

The young singers will meet with the PM at his office in the morning, accompanied by Government spokesman Lt-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd, who is concurrently the PRD’s caretaker director-general.

Among the BNK48 singers to call on General Prayut are the band’s “captain” Cherprang Areekul, deputy bandleader Jennis Oprasert, Napapat Woraprueksanon, Warattaya Deesomlert, Praewa Suthampong, Kantira Watcharatassanakul, and Rinrada Inthaisong.

 

Named after Bangkok, the group is the Thai sister group of Japan’s idol girl group AKB48. It has 26 members as of February.

Band? Looks like a dance troupe. Why are there so many of them, and where are their musical instruments?

Just hold on, I am top of the list. I have a twelve-year-old daughter, the house resonates to the sound of their "music". I deserve some recompense...

Truly, a meeting of contrasting personalities.

 

One  desses up in gaudy costumes, singing juvenile verses and has practically no fans. The other is a famous idol group.

Forgive us, Lemmy. We have failed you...

...or as some say just another Thai copy. And the propaganda stunt will fall short as another lousy copy in comparison with those the mother of all PR stunts, Kim Jong Un, brings on stage. At least here they try to copy the best.

P will be delighted when they turn up in their traditional Thai costumes as displayed in the OP photos... until they all start twerking.

Furthermore, what could they and the military junta chief possibly have to say to one another, apart from 'Gin khao yang?' followed by an awkward silence...
