Controversies[edit]

The date of the second Konhaku Utagassen live concert[edit]

It was revealed that SNH48's second Konhaku Utagassen live concert would be held on December 13, 2014 at the end of the trailer of UZA, the group's brand-new song. The official date was determined on September 18, 2014, the commemoration day of the Mukden Incident occurred on Sept. 18, 1931. This provoked a massive controversy that the date the production team chosen is the 77th anniversary of the Nanking Massacre. What's more, two of the members are from Nanjing, China, and SNH48's original mother group is AKB48, whose headquarter lies in Tokyo, Japan. Due to the political and historical reasons, a giant sum of online fans criticized the group's decision in both the official forum and Sina Weibo, or other social networkings. However, there are no official responses to this major controversy yet.
