The members are asked questions about each other, they have to answer and see who get's it right. They're also asked questions like "who is the most ___ in NEWS?" and they also need to impersonate certain aspects of the other members XD The members say Massu is wasteful with clothes, Tegoshi likes to impersonate drama lines lately it seems, Shige is STILL banning the members from coming to his house again and the members guess what Koyama was most worried about on the drama set!
Very cute idea for an interview :)
NEWS Love Quiz
Q. What clothes has Massu been liking lately?
Shige -> A loose sort of T-shirt, and then have a lot of rings that suit his tastes on
Tego -> Glasses like Arare-chan. He's often wearing things that I just find hard to understand (laugh)
Koyama -> Something that's all loose. He's always using loose clothes like that but he's actually pretty thin....that gap is interesting!
Massu -> A flower print shirt. It was given to me as a present from someone but a black a white shirt that has tiny flower prints on it is what I've been liking lately. Even in winter T-shirts are must have items. I also wear long shirts often. A lot of the time I'm wearing things like a T-shirt + Parka + down vest.
Q. What was the gag that Massu did the in Johnny's web New Years comment? (Correct answer is Gettsu)
Tego -> Impersonation of Lola-san? Because he did it a few times during Tegomasu concert
Shige -> Eh~ this is hard! Um "Akemashite omedetougozai-Massu (Happy New year)*" Eh, Gettsu? A persons one!?....I seriously thought about it and it's wrong
Koyama ->....I don't remember it. Massu will always definitely fail when he does a gag, but he says them so full of confidence (laugh)
Massu -> Eh, what did I do? Eh, Gettsu!? There's nothing I can do laugh bitterly (laugh) But Gettsu is a gag I like. It's awesome as a weapon (laugh)
Q. At what moment does Shige think that Massu is cute? (Answer with what you imagine it would be)
Tego -> Seeing Massu get angry when someone puts his stuff on the floor (laugh)
Koyama -> When Massu is being a bit sulky. You can clearly tell "He's in a bad mood right now"
Shige-> What is this, you're presuming that there actually is one? (laugh) If I had to say one then it's when he speaks and tries really hard to act like a tough guy.
Massu -> Always

Q. What is the recommended dish at his families Chinese restaurant?
Massu ->Wasn't it Chilled Chinese Noodles? I'v'e also heard that the ramen is good. By the way, I like the gyoza at ramen stores.
Tego -> Ramen and Gyoza!
Shige -> Isn't it the Shoyu Ramen and gyoza? Anything you eat will taste good but what I recommend is the chilled chinese noodles in the summer. They're simple and taste really really good!
Koyama -> Gyoza, Gyoza! The gyoza that my mum has been for 30 year already. It tastes good.
Q. Koyama is the drama Lucky seven. What was Koyama worrying about on set?
Tego -> "I don't know how to connect with Jun-kun". Acting with one of your sniors makes you feel nervous at first. When I acted with Nagase-kun and Koki-kun for My Boss My Hero, at first I didn't know how I should go about to connect with them. I found out that they're both really nice and funny people so I felt relieved.
Massu-> He'd be worrying about "I wonder if it would be okay to go and eatthe sweets they have near the studio?" (laugh) I'd be the type to eat. I like the moist type cookies.
Shige -> He has someone acting as his kid so "How would I make myself seem like a father?"
Koyama -> I don't have many heavy worries but...I do worry about things like "Can I just go and drink those drinks that they have in front of the studio?"
Decisively! What is Koyama's height right now?
Shige -> I don't know~~~ Isn't it about 178cm?
Massu -> 2m5cm. Because he said he's still growing (laugh) But speaking seriously, about 180cm?
Tego -> 178cm. Kei-chan is really slim so he has this image of being long (laugh)
Koyama -> 178cm. But this is data from a while back so I might be at about 180cm.

Q. Something that Tegoshi said recently in an interview or concert MC that packed a punch?
Massu -> He said "Understood**" like from a cerain drama
Shige -> Speaking of today, his "Understood". It seems like he's going along with a trend, but he doesn't watch dramas much or anything. He's just being sneaky. What I predict, is that next month he'll be talking about "2700***"
Koyama -> His "Let's be rabu-rabu~" from when we came out at Countdown. I felt moved, thinking that he can still say that in front of so many people that don't know Tegoshi's character (laugh) He strong hearted~
Tego -> "Understood". Even during the shoot just then I would reply to the camera mans directions with it (laugh)
Q. From what Tegoshi says during concerts, what words make the fans most happy? (Your prediction)
Koyama -> It'd be "Let's love each other"
Massu-> "Koneko-chan" right? He said it quite a bit at Tegomasu concert before too. Eh, for myself? Lately my boom has been to say "Little kids! It's Massu~" (laugh) S
hige -> "I love you~". Things that I definitely wouldn't be able to say. I even really hated the "Kuchidzuke wo~" from "I.ZA.NA.IZU.KI" at first. The Shige call in "Sayaendou"? That was Massu who started that. Without my approval (laugh) I don't know what sort of action I should do for that (laugh)
Tego -> Would it be "Let's love each other"? Embarrassment? None at all! Doing photo shoots being all clingy with the members is more embarrassing (laugh) If the fans are there then I can do most things
Q. What is Tegoshi's Skull (His dog)'s boom lately? (Answer what you think)
Massu -> Hide and seek? I'm the type to not have pets but if it's tropical fish I'd likve to try having some
Koyama -> I wouldn't know that~ (laugh) Sleeping on Tegoshi's lap (He hears Tegoshi's answer) ......just drink water (laugh)
Shige -> Chewing on desk corners
Tegoshi -> Drinking vegetable juice. When I went back to my family home recently, he just normally drank it and I was surprised. I was wondering what my mum was thinking (laugh) Health wise it's good for humans, but I wonder how it is for dogs
- - - - -
Q. What do you want to bring the next time you all go over to Shige's house to play?
Koyama -> The balloon we used at NEWS concert. We'll inflate it inside and get Shige to get inside. Then it would just be floating 10cm off the ground (laugh)
Tego -> A gigantic cracker with lots of stuff inside that makes a big noise. And then the cannon gun that shoots out the silver tape at concerts
Massu -> Canned Tuna
Shige -> No no, they're already banned from coming over to my place, so that's not going to happen (laugh)
Q. Where was the country overseas that Shige was wanting to go and went to at the end of last year?
Tego ->....Wasn't it Spain?
Massu -> Maldives! I feel like he's said something like that before. I recently went to Kagawa to eat Udon.
Koyama -> Was it Spain? ....No, that's not right. I feel like it was France. Yeah, it was France! I just casually said to him "Buy me a souvenir from that brand that I like" but I was completely ignored (laugh)
Shige -> Paris right. Paris was good. I'll definitely "Have seconds"! Not just Paris, but I've built an interest in Mont-Saint-Michelle and Southern France, the whole of France.
Q. When speaking of something that often happens to Shige?
Tego -> He's normally funny and although he's an idol, a cool and sharp attitude comes out
Koyama -> He forgets things a lot. And he loses his cell phone an wallet. On set I often see him say "I can't my OO!"
Massu -> That he get's bullied by the members. But he unexpectedly has high pride, so it's not like he's OK being bullied by anyone. We're already "Shige Bullying Pro's" you know (laugh)
Shige -> Automatic doors don't open. And water supplies that are supposed to react automatically don't react.

Q. Who's the best in NEWS at impersonations? (Correct answer will be decided by highest number)
Massu -> Tegoshi. What's amazing about him is that if someone says "Do it" he'll always try and challenge it.
Koyama -> Tegoshi! I probably wouldn't be able to do anything besides the "Mi" part of "Moomin****"
Shige -> Tegoshi. I quote Tegoshi's impersonation of a female singer. Like Nakashima Mika, it's pretty similar.
Tego -> Me! The Johnny's who I'm a sure thing with when it comes to impersonating are Tsuyoshi-kun, Subaru-kun and Kame-san, those 3 probably. I did the ones of Subaru-kun and Kame-san in front of the real peoplefor "Dream Boys". I'm glad they found it funny!
Q.Who the one who arrives backstage the earliest? (Correct answer will be decided by highest number)
Tego -> Shige
Shige -> I think that it's unexpectedly me
Massu -> Everyone is about the same I think, but Shige is a bit earlier.
Koyama -> Isn't it me?
Q. Who seems to be the most wasteful? (Correct answer will be decided by highest number)
Shige -> Massu. He buys too much clothes!
Tego -> Massu. He has this image of buying a lot of clothes. He definitely has to have cothes that he doesn't wear!
Koyama -> It's Massu. He buys clothes or small accessories that make me think "Eh, didn't you have that already?". I'm the type to use money or trips or food I guess
Massu -> Probably me. I tend to buy things like clothes a lot. No, actually it's wrong. I don't actually think of it as being a waste (laugh)
Q. Who's the most romanticist in NEWS? (Correct answer will be decided by highest number)
Massu -> Immediate reply is Tegoshi! I'm not the type to be a romanticist at all
Koyama-> Tegoshi. I'm kind of interested in knowing if he says those sweet kind of words like he does at concerts in his private life too
Tego -> Me or Kei-chan. Because we both love the really~~~~ cliche stuff (laugh)
Shige -> Isn't it Koyama? But actually I'm a romanticist too. Writing a novel, it's improved my power of imagination. But Koyama is a more easily understood romanticist. He seems the type to say something like "Here's looking at you" (laugh)
Q. Please do the cute pose that Tegoshi often does!
You can use 1 chair, so please reproduce how Koyama is in the backstage room
Tegoshi -> He looks at his phone while reading what it says in emails out loud (laugh)
Shige -> He leans forward
Massu -> It's a newspaper
Q.You can use 1 chair, so please reproduce how Massu is during interviews
Tego -> Because Massu worries about his hair
Koyama -> Ok! Let's bring Massu's image down (laugh)
Q. Please do the expression that Shige often does in photo shoots

Koyama's recent news
On New Years, the whole Koyama family got together and I gave all the kid relatives New Years money and for the first time in a while we all talked really excitedly, it felt like New Years. My grandma bought a Karaoke machine through mail order and was singing things like by Misora Hibari (laugh) Everyone was moving their head right and left to the beat while listening. So peaceful~ (laugh) Eh, me? They put in "Weeeek" but I politely refused (laugh) The count down concert was fun. It's something that we've just always normally participated in but I really felt the happiness of standing on that stage and backstage lots of the others said "Do you your best!". We need to put NEWS into action this year!
Shige's recent news
This is from a little while ago now but I was so moved at the countdown concert that I felt like crying. t made realise that I love standing on stage and it turned my switch on, thinking "Okay, we'll do this!". Right now it's slowly falling forward (laugh) But it makes me think that I need to show parts of myself that I haven't up until now....And by the time this issue of WU is out my book "Pink & Gray" will be out huh~ I've been doing a lot of interviews but, it's a novel, so there are a lot of magazines that are one's that I haven't experienced yet. The questions are all things I'm being asked for the first time, like "This part was influenced by OO wasn't it?". Thinking of the cover and the font was a first for me too so it was a good experience.
Massu's Recent news
I'm always the kind of person to not decide on new years goals. I don't really like pin pointing a place to stop. But since the new year has started, I've been leaving the house a bit earlier than I have to meet with people and going to have coffee at a cafe or going to the gym, am starting my days very well. So it made me think that this year I want to make my mornings like this a lot. This isn't something I decided on new years day, it's something that I've decided now, a while after the start of the year (laugh) I'm also continuing from last year and reading books. I received Shige's so I need to read him and tell him what I think. But writing a novel is pretty amazing. My emails are at most 2 lines and I frantically try to write stuff for Jweb (laugh)
Tegoshi's recent news
I'm going on location to Hawaii for "ItteQ". I basically love Japan most of the time, but hearing Hawaii it got me excited. And we have no filming on the arrival date and usually on this show we have no night locations so it seems like I'll have some free time as well. Going out to eat with staff at night is fun too. I guess that this year I'll be able to go to a lot of places and have you see different sides of me a lot. I also want to see you guys as NEWS! First we'll release a single, then album, then a tour...if it went like that it would be the best. We sang NEWS songs together for the first time in a while at Countdown but it had a fresh feel to it and was fun.
