On October 10th, NEWS member Koyama Keiichiro appeared on “news every.“, which he regularly takes part in as a newscaster. During the program, he shared his thoughts on the group’s fresh start. This is the first time for any NEWS member to speak live after Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo left the group.
Koyama was asked by NTV’s newscaster Fujii Takahiko to give a few words about NEWS’ fresh start. Gazing solemnly into the camera, Koyama expressed, “NEWS has had too little activities as a group until now, but even so, our fans have been waiting for us. So, I absolutely did not want to end NEWS here for those fans.”
Indeed,NEWS’ group activities were very limited, and the last time the members all gathered together was in April during Marching J’s charity event for the Tohoku earthquake.
He also commented on NEWS’ future, saying, “It will be quite tough way from now on, but we will try our best. So please continue to support us,” and made a deep bow.
