One of the highlights of this season "Produce 48" is the combination of trainees from Japan. Most of them are from AKB48 but others are also from HKT48, NMB48 and so on. Although some of them may already be well-known in Japan, these trainees from Japan are new to viewers from South Korea and all over the world.

Before the season premieres on June 15th, let us find out more about the Japanese trainees who will be appearing on the show. We will keep on updating the list as soon as we get more information for the remaining trainees.

her name is in kanji, so it's bibian. if her name were in katakana, it would be vivian.

That's not necessarily true, the katakana for V sounds are quite rarely used. Although everyone knows how it's done, in practice the B sound is more often substituted.

In this case the canonical version if her name is 緋杏 (びびあん) so there is no katakana version. If her name were actually Vivian it would be transliterated as—in order of likelihood—ビビアン, ヴィヴィアン, or ヸヸアン.

really when they say training period its basically how long it's been since they debuted, none of them have actually been trained like Koreans are in the idol system.
