Keep track of CKG48 developments.
Along the way, for more than 4 months, not too long, is not our member and operation group still early? There are many things that we all experience together. However, this does not escape or remove the error by reason. After breaking, staying firm to face mistakes can make you better.

The entire CKG48 operating team will continue to advance, For all fans of fans give better support. Support CKG48 for stronger and stronger.
