NEWS stands for North East West South - means they will be shinning in all areas
NEWS stands for「NEWS」 - means they will have the big impact like news.

NEWS was grouped on 2003.09.15 for supporting Women Volleyball, members are: KOYAMA KEIICHIRO NISHIKIDO RYO YAMASHITA TOMOHISA MASUDA TAKAHISA UCHI HIROKI KATO SHIGEAKI TEGOSHI YUYA KUSANO HIRONORI MORIUCHI TAKAHIRO. On 2003.11.07, NEWS indies debuted by「NEWS NIPPON」. At the end of year, MORIUCHI TAKAHIRO quitted NEWS due to his own studies. 2004. 05.12 NEWS major debuted byKIBOU~Yell~」. Since then, NEWS get the first place in ORICON CHART for their every single and album. From July 2005, UCHI HIROKI has been going through self-refection period due to alcohol problem. From Feb 06 for the same reason, KUSANO has been going through self refection period as well. And NEWS temporally stopped group activities and started solo works.

Although the whole 8 months of solo activities were long and slow both for fans and NEWS members, each member got excellent experience and appraisals for their Drama or solo CDs.

07.01.01, NEWS came back, group activity starts again. The two members who has been in self-reflection period also started to work as trainees. The perfect shinning appeal on the stage is proved by their endless hard training. Their career life might not be that smooth, but the experience earned by defeat at the start will also be the priceless treasure. It not only deepened the relationship among them also make them become much more mature.
NO rain, no rainbow. After setback, it would be their turn to show themselves. Each member is a shinning star. Their different personalities are harmonized together, so heart-warming.  Just like what KOYAMA said that NEWS=unknown. This "unknown" means infinite probabilities, no restrain. On the way of finding the answer, they might fall over, but please trust that they will continuously go ahead.

2007 will be a new start for NEWS, so please support the whole 8 of them and trust them. Make them walk more confidently on their way.
