BNK48 (read B.N.K. Forty-eight) is a Thai idol girl group and the third international sister group of Japan's AKB48, following Indonesia's JKT48 and China's SNH48.

After holding its first audition in mid-2016 and announcing its first-generation members in early 2017, the group officially debuted on 2 June 2017 and released the debut single, "Yak Cha Dai Phop Thoe", on 8 August 2017. Its second single, "Khukki Siangthai", released on 20 December 2017, was a great success.[1] As of March 2021, the group has 56 members.

The group is named after Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, where its theatre, BNK48 the Campus, is located. Orchid, a flower popular in the country, serves as both the colour and motif of the group.[2]

BNK48 announced the formation of their first sister group, CGM48 (named after the city of Chiang Mai), on 2 June 2019. CGM48 is the first domestic sister group to be launched outside Japan and second sister group of 48 Group in Thailand.[3]



On 26 March 2016, the formation of BNK48, MNL48, and TPE48 was announced.[4]

The first BNK48 audition was held from 29 July to 31 August 2016, attracting a total of 1,357 applicants,[5] of whom 330 were selected on 5 September.[6] The initial selection of the first-generation members was later held on 17 and 18 September 2016. On 23 September 2016, the selection result was declared, stating that 80 candidates would pass into the final selection. However, due to the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej on 13 October 2016, the final selection was postponed until 18 December, on which a number of candidates were selected as the first generation of the group.


Members Jennis, Namneung, Maysa, Namhom, Kaimook, and Miori, clad in the first single outfit, perform at The Mall Bang Kapi in Bangkok on 23 July 2017.

On 12 February 2017, the first generation of the group was officially announced, consisting of 29 members.[7][8] They made their first appearance at the AKB48 show during the 12th Japan Festa in Bangkok on the same day.[9]

So far, no official music video has been released for the single.[12]

The group, representing Japan, performed with Thai singer Palitchoke Ayanaputra and the South Korean band iKON at the concert 2017: 411 Fandom Party in Bangkok, held at Siam Paragon on the night of 30 August 2017, during which it premiered the song "Khukki Siangthai", a cover of AKB48's "Koi Suru Fortune Cookie".[13][14]

On 31 August 2017, an announcement was made saying that due to their violation of undisclosed rules, Jan, Kaew, Orn, and Namneung, the oldest members of the group who were scheduled to perform at the Japan Expo in Thailand 2017 on 1 and 3 September 2017, were demoted to undergirls and replaced by Jane, Mobile, Pupe, and Rina Izuta for the said event. It was speculated that the four were punished for truancy.[15]

At the Japan Expo, the group performed "Khukki Siangthai" with World Order during the opening ceremony[16] and unveiled its eponymous anthem, "BNK48 (Bangkok48)", which depicts tourist spots and foods of Bangkok.[17]

The group held its first formal concert, BNK48 We Love You, on 23 September 2017 at The EmQuartier in Bangkok to mark the graduation of Kidcat. At the event, the release of the song "Khukki Siangthai" as the group's second single was announced.[18] The music video for the song was premiered at the concert BNK48 Mini Live and Handshake, held at J.J Mall in Bangkok on 18 November 2017.[19]

The group carried out an audition for its second-generation members from February to April 2018. Ninety-four of the total candidates passed the initial round on 20 March 2018[26] and twenty-seven of them were finally announced as the second-generation members on 29 April 2018.[27]

On 28 February 2018, the group was selected as the official Thailand national football team supporters.[28]

The group held its first concert, called Starto, at BITEC on 31 March and 1 April 2018.[29]

On 24 April 2018, the group had an audience with military junta chief Prayut Chan-o-cha at the Government House, where the group held a live-broadcast handshake event with the general. The event is seen by scholars as the junta's attempt to build popularity amongst young people for the upcoming election. But the group's company denied any political purpose behind the meeting, saying the event was just for promoting a government radio station.[30]

The first album of the group, River, was announced on 31 May 2018.[31]

Managing entities[]

The group is managed by a specifically established company called BNK48 Office.[41][11][42] On 7 November 2019, BNK48 Office was renamed independent Artist Management (iAM) in order to be more focused on talent management.[43]

BNK48 Office is presided over by Jirath Pavaravadhana (Thai: จิรัฐ บวรวัฒนะ).[44] Saowani Kanjanaolarnsiri (Thai: เสาวณีย์ กาญจนโอฬารศิริ) is currently serving as the manager (shihainin) of the group after Jirath's younger brother, Nataphol Pavaravadhana (Thai: ณัฐพล บวรวัฒนะ) has resigned.[45][46]

The proportion of shares in BNK48 Office on 18 April 2018 was as follows: Jirath's company Rose Artist Management held 69.8050%, a Chinese businesswoman held 15.1950%, AKB48's company AKS held 15%, and Jirath himself held 0.0001%.[47] It was reported on 23 May 2018 that 35% of the shares were sold to the media conglomerate Plan B Media at the price of ฿182,280,000.[48]

On 11 June 2018, another company was created, called BNK Production, in which Workpoint Entertainment holds 50% of the shares, BNK48 Office holds 49.99% of the shares, and BNK48 Office CEO Jirath holds 0.01% of the shares.[49] According to an explanatory sheet, the company is intended for production of television and online shows and for organisation of events and concerts.[50]


According to BNK48 Office CEO Jirath Pavaravadhana, the group's primary sources of revenue would be commercial products, appearances at commercial events, and sponsors.[51] The group is also financed by the Cool Japan Fund.[52]

Jirath also said that the company would invest ฿200,000,000 for the group during the years 2017–2018 and expects to regain the invested capital by 2019.[44][51]

At the end of the fiscal year 2017, the group gained ฿40,549,323.58 income and bore ฿62,582,979.24 expense, resulting in a ฿22,298,366.99 loss.[47]


Each member of the group is subject to a six-year contract that can be renewed.[53]

Shows and events[]

The group has its own digital studio, colloquially known as "Fish Tank" (Thai: ตู้ปลา), at The EmQuartier, where its members periodically make a live appearance on Facebook and YouTube holding discussions on various topics.[51][54]

Each member of the group also appears live through the broadcasting application VOOV every night.[55]

In mid 2017, the group held roadshows every weekend at The Mall Group shopping malls.[55][56]

To support its debut single, the group held its first handshake event in Bangkok on 27 August 2017.[57] The event attracted almost 4,000 fans.[58] The second handshake event took place on 18 November 2017 in Bangkok and drew almost 5,000 fans.[59]

Also, the group has launched its own television shows, such as BNK48 Senpai, a 13-episode-long documentary aired every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 1 March 2017, and BNK48 Show, a 26-episode-long variety show aired every Sunday from 9 July 2017, both broadcast by Channel 3.[56]


The group has its own theatre in Bangkok, where it performs three times a week: Saturday, 13:00 hrs and 17:00 hrs; and Sunday, 17:00 hrs.[60]

The theatre, named "BNK48 the Campus", is located on the fourth floor of The Mall Bang Kapi, occupying a 1,000-m2 area. It accommodates 350 people and includes a shop, a café, and an office within its precincts.[59]

The group did a theatrical performance for the press at the theatre on 26 April 2018,[61] and the theatre was inaugurated on 11 May 2018.[60] A Buddhist housewarming ritual, presided over by nine monks from Wat Traimit Witthayaram, was held for the theatre on 4 July 2018.[62] Despite the ritual, the theatre is reportedly haunted.[63]

The first theatrical performance of the group, known as the first stage, is titled Party ga Hajimaru Yo, or Party Nai Fan (Thai: ปาร์ตีในฝัน; "Party in Dream") in Thai.[64]


The members of the group are often promoted as good role models for the youth. Some believe that the most appealing aspect of the group comes from the members' personalities themselves and not from their talents. On the other hand, the fact that most of the fans are adult men, as opposed to the members who are still teenage girls, is considered an unusual image in the Thai culture.[65]


During the roadshow in the beach town Hua Hin on 6 August 2017, eight autographed photos of members were auctioned off to raise money for flood victims in Northeastern Thailand. The auction fetched over ฿200,000.[66]




The group was announced as the Person of the Year by Voice TV on 20 December 2017.[67]
