Introduction

HKT48 has had a total of 76 original members over their 5 generations (not including Draft, Kennin and transferred members) and a total of 88 members. As of October 2020, HKT48 has 37 active members, 13 Kenkyuusei and 2 members in IZ*ONE.

Like in AKB48, regular auditions to recruit new members are held, and the future successful candidates, the Kenkyuusei Members (Research Students), take part of a in-training team of members that work as sub and under for the official members in various activities (mostly the Theater Performances). And then, when any of the official members graduate, a girl is promoted to fill the space.

Besides the regular auditions, HKT48 also participates on the AKB48 Group Draft Kaigi to recruit new members. Currently all the generations have at least one member in the group, except the first generation of Draft members.
