    There will be 100 ranked members including JKT BNK TPE. Interesting.
    Now the question is, does the overseas fans need to buy 52nd single to vote or buy their own countries single? It will be cost a lot for JKT and BNK fans to buy in yen

    I'm guessing this means that there's gonna be another team under Upcoming Girls?
