      That’s the 20K Gap the trainees have to chase, reach and jump over. Go for it trainees! jump over that 20K Gap!

    I don’t know my question refers or not refer to 20K Gap. But regarding JKT48 Mega Cocert 2, I think it was too early for Gen.2. Because “original(I want call them, Team J with my deep respect) JKT48” needed approx. 8 months (almost 1 year) from their debut to the 1st Mega Con. Just only approx. 2 or 3 months for KKS? I worry that KKS tend to think “Success can be easily raken”.

  3. The price point difference serves both as an incentive and a means of demand control. It’s one of the ironies of the AKB48 system. The “idols you can meet every day” concept becomes “idols you can meet every day (if you can pay the price)”. It’s natural for fans and even new followers to flock to the more well-known members of the group because they are more exposed to the media.

    By setting the price point of trainee performances lower, it means that those who are just finding out about JKT48 and don’t want (or are unable) to pay an extra Rp. 20,000 have an option as well. It ensures the sustainability of a fan base. New followers can support new members, and perennial fans can continue to support more tenured members. As tenured members graduate, the lower price point becomes an incentive for their fans to come back and support the younger, less experienced members.
