“Double Seven Boys” debut
The show also saw the debut of the boy group “Double Seven Boys” which are managed by a subsidiary of STAR48.
Formerly known as “Nuclear 2 Mars”, this group was first announced during the 3rd SNH48 Best50 Request Time concert in 2017 and later setup under a “new” agency after a backlash from SNH48 Group fans who accused STAR48 of diverting their money to a boy group.
The group is officially seperate from SNH48 Group but that is mostly a facade as all their infrastructure (including web servers) are the same as the other groups.
You can find out more about the group on their web site.
