NEVERLAND Wakayama Concert 05/27/2017 ~Report translation~ 

Tegoshi explains about his scandals

“I have two things that I want to tell you guys. 

The first one is about the tickets. It is true that my parents and people that I am thankful for come see NEWS concerts. However, they actually pay their own money to come see it. For instance, my parents joined the fan club with their own name and get the tickets through the same process as you guys do. So, please know that Johnny’s absolutely does not give out free tickets.

The second thing is about the guy who has been rumored. First of all, I discovered about this guy’s name and his face for the first time, and I do not have any relationship with him at all. It was seven years ago, so maybe when I was 22 or 23? At that time, I took the picture with him without thinking much, and that has caused some accusations. But whatever that has been rumored and is going around is not true. 

I am going to be yelled at by the agency later on for saying these things on my own. But I am a selfish guy (for not listening to the agency), and I wanted to clear this up for everyone. I am sorry.

That being said, just because I said these things on my own, that does not mean other Johnny’s members are the same. Just because they are not speaking with their own words about their scandals, that does not mean the scandals are true. They have their own reasons for not being able to say it. 

I am sorry for making you guys feel uncomfortable during the first half of the concert. But let’s have fun for the second half!“ 

At the end of the concert, he commented:

“To be honest, I have never felt this scared to stand on a stage before. But I love all of you so much. As long as my body exists, I will do this job. So please continue being a part of NEWS.” 


Thank you, Tegoshi, for always showing us your love for us through your justified beliefs and exact actions. You are my idol who I look up to and respect as a person that is so brave and doesn’t fear to stand up for things he loves. 

He very well knew that by speaking us about his issue, he would get into a huge trouble afterwards. But he could care less about it because he felt the need to tell us with his own words. This shows how much he cherishes his fans, as well as his job and NEWS itself.

Ryo-chan making things awkward since 1984

K-chan NEWS 170614

Koya: 0AM the other night, I received a message from Tegoshi: “Kei-chan, can you come here now?“ I asked him what’s wrong since it’s his private time. Within less than 20 minutes I arrived at the restaurant. Sitting in the corner was a really small Tegoshi, looking completely lost. I asked him what happened, after hearing his story I comforted him saying “Because it’s Tegoshi, everything will work out.” His friends staying with him then told me he was obviously down. Can I say this? Tegoshi was wearing a hat, he pulled it down so nobody could see his eyes, and suddenly I heard this *imitated sobbing sounds* The blond was crying? I asked him “Are you crying?” and he kept weeping soundlessly like that. I pulled him into my arms saying “What is it?” Tegoshi had moments like that, I helped him fix his mood and give him advices. At that time, I thought he was just a human being.
Tego: I didn’t want anyone seeing my cry, I’m the terminator.
Koya: Keep contacting me like that afterwards okay? When things happen we can help each other out
Tego: Being a member means that, right?
Koya: Being each other’s strongest comrades.

Now I’M THE ONE BAWLING MY EYES OUT

Just imagining this scene kills me

He had friends, yet he called Kei-chan there.

And yet, Kei-chan came.

And despite sitting there in the corner for God knows how long, He broke into tears only when Koyama arrived.

《ザ少年倶楽部プレミアム》-Shounen Club Premium 03.15.17

Each member has their own strengths and weaknesses; so they cover up those weaknesses for each other, and let each other shine whenever those strengths are needed.

Massu mentioned how Shige’s singing ability has improved by a lot. He said that the fans might have noticed it too, but as a member who sings with him, he feels that way more than anyone else.

Massu also said that the members have passed the point where they stopped telling Tegoshi to stop being such a goof ball and sometimes inappropriate (to the extent where the directors have to cut it to show on TV). According to Massu, this is because he trusts Tegoshi for things he does, and if that part of Tegoshi is lost, then it will be boring.

On the other hand, when Massu does his jokes and gags, Shige and Kchan don’t always react to it and just let it pass. But Tegoshi justified that by saying that when he’s looking at them in those situations, he can tell that Shige and Kchan are ignoring Massu on purpose sometimes because they know that the jokes won’t bring them anywhere (doesn’t lead to anything more). But when they know that it will, they actually pick it up and react to Massu’s silliness.

K-chan mentioned that when they sing for the show with live orchestras/bands, his hands don’t stop shaking due to the nerves–he says the amount of pressure he has to sing with Tegomass (who are used to singing with live band) is so much.
But when Tegoshi is off the camera, he secretly puts thumbs up when K-chan hits the right note.

Along with that, Tegoshi expressed his desire to lead everyone in the singing field, while giving credits to K-chan for his ability to talk well on the show and doing such a good job as an Emcee.

It’s just these little things that makes my love for this group grow even more.

I don’t know how many times I’ve said this, but they’re incredible.
