According to this image (source: https://vk.com/chinaspaceflight?w=wall-119361981_5864) Liu Wang was also promoted to MajorGeneral. So it is possible, that all flown taikonauts from the 1998 group are now a General.

Crew members for the first crewed flight to Tianhe core module have been selected. Third round of astronaut selection to be announced soon.

A new flight opportunity for Jing Haipeng?    :P

I have made a .pdf with the taikonauts selected on the two first groups, and their flights.
New info and corrections are welcome.

Based on previous practice, going back to 2003, I'm sure that what this really means, is they've selected a pool of three crews, from which a prime and back-up crew will be chosen, much nearer to the flight.

Cross post:

Shenzhou-14 astronauts conduct their first spacewalk

This is a capture from the video. 
I noticed that the feitian's backpacks are signed.
Till now the blue Feitian was weared by Tang Hongbo, Liu Buoming and Chen Dong.
The yellow one by Wang Yaping, Ye Guangfu and Liu Yang.

I don't read Chinese but comparing with the signed envelope that revealed the identities of the second group it seems that we have discovered a new chinese space tradition: the taikonauts sign their Feitians prior their spacewalk.

As I bumped this thread, I'll post an image that shows the unassigned chinese taikonauts.
The third group was selected on Oct.2020, so probably (if they follow the russian pattern) they will finish their training, and qualification exams, on Oct.2022 (+/-) , so they're probably out of the selection for Shenzhou-15. 

They were still unidentified.  :(

Explanation:
"Days ago" means days transcurred from their last spaceflight return.

Edited:
To add the explanation, and fix my English mistakes...

China Manned Space Agency is responsible for the selection.
Currently the 3rd batch of 18 taikonauts are being trained.
China has 21 taikonauts in total from the first and the second generations. 14 of them have taken part in 9 missions, including the latest #Shenzhou14 mission.

.-.-.-.-

It seems that China is starting the recruitment of the 4th group of taikonauts.

The second group was selected in 2010 and maybe we will discover the portraits, DOB and names of the seven of the recruited in 2022.
So being 18 recruited on the third batch in 2020, maybe will know their identities, portraits and DOB around 2050...

Silly secrecy policy...  >:(

Astronauts undergo intense training for their space missions, including sleep deprivation in a small space to simulate challenges in orbit. Their super abilities are honed through rigorous preparation in over 100 areas. Full HD:

"...including 8 pilots" - presumably they will be the ones to fly to the moon :).
