And as mentioned, JKT48 is now auditioning for the 1st Generation members, but according to the AKB48 Blog, they might even debut this year, if everything goes well.
Good to know that, there is no need to wait till the press conference in November~
Btw, JKT48 have dumped their blogspot and got themselves a proper website~
Auditions are still undergoing, so girls who qualify, go for it!
PS: It seems that the official Announcement of the JKT48 is done at the Handshake event current happening at the Makuhari now by Toga-san. It is also mentioned on his twitter account. Not bad, seems like they are serious about it~ Looking forward to it!
