In an earlier than expected expansion, JKT48 is looking for more members to fill its roster as second generation members. The South-east Asian sister group of AKB48 has opened auditions, with the initial stage lasting from 13 August to 31 August. Girls aged 13 to 18 are eligible to apply, with the condition that applicants would need to be based in Indonesia, and are open to work in the city of Jakarta. More information can be found on JKT48’s Facebook page, along with the terms and application forms.
