New and fresh Thai pop girl group BNK48 is the cutest girl group in Thailand right now. A| Thai pop girl group formed in Bangkok, they are the third international sister group to the legendary Japanese girl group AKB48 after Indonesia's JKT48 and China's SNH48.
The group is named after Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand . Orchid, a popular flower in the country, serves as both the colour and motif of the group. The group made its official debut with the single "Aitakatta - Yak Ja Dai Pop Ter".
The first auditions for aspiring pop stars was held in late July of 2016 where organisers saw more than 1,300 hopefuls turn up to be a part of the successful franchise, one of the most noted groups in Asia who have fans in Japan, Indonesia, China and beyond, made possible by their localised sub groups. The initial election of the first generation members was later held on September 17 and 18 later that year.
