Happy Birthday Shige!


Happy 33rd Birthday Shige!

Thank you for being so open-minded, so willing to learn about and share different cultures and perspectives. For always putting thought into the words you choose and for wanting to become someone who holds responsibility for the words they say. You inspire us to become better people, and we hope you know what a positive influence you are on us. Please know that you deserve all the love in the world!

While we can't tell how long it's going to take for physical cards/letters to be delivered with the current situation, it's always the thought that counts, so here's the latest address for Johnny's Family Club:

〒150-8550 
ジャニーズファミリークラブ内
「(ご希望のグループ名・タレント名)行」
JAPAN

〒150-8550 
Johnny's Family Club
(Attn: [Insert group/talent name])
Tokyo, JAPAN

Please avoid sending anything more than cards/letters as they will be seen as gifts and get discarded or returned by the agency.

We'll also be leaving this as a sticky post for a week, so please keep all the birthday wishes to the comments section of this post! :)

Happy Birthday Massu!


Happy 34th Birthday to our gentle yet strong presence.
It's been a year of milestones, with him becoming a regular on "Gochi", landing his first WOWOW drama, first leading role in "Rental", (anan cover) and an upcoming musical. This year, we hope he gets to eat all his favourite food, rests enough, is surrounded by lots of love, and never has to worry about when NEWS gets to perform at Tokyo Dome again.

While we can't tell how long it's going to take for physical cards/letters to be delivered with the current situation, it's always the thought that counts, so here's the latest address for Johnny's Family Club:

A quick update

This is not an easy entry to write.

It is extremely hard to choose the right words, when everyone is still trying to process what hit us last week. As with most of the fandom, we are trying to digest it all and figure out our next steps. The community isn’t going to disappear, as it has been around for NEWS since 2004, and will continue to be. While the mods have changed over the years - just like how the four of us only took up these positions a few years back - the aim of this community hasn’t. To be a place for NEWS and NEWS fans. We will need more time to sort out what this community should look like from this point on, but we will be back, so please be patient with us until then.

We hope this news_jpop can continue to be a safe and positive place for all fans of NEWS, so as we continue to try to cope with what has happened, we would really appreciate it if all of us could respect that everyone’s coping mechanism is different and that even though we might not all react or feel the same way, every reaction is valid.

In the meantime, here are a few key updates on NEWS’ work.

  • It was announced through email on Jun 22nd to FC members who hit for STORY tickets that the entire tour has been cancelled and refunds will be made. They are planning for an event in Fall 2020, and there will be a stream on Jun 28th from 17:00JST onwards. FC members can watch the stream through this link.

  • On Jun 24th, it was announced through the drama's twitter that "Nigatsu no Shosha" will be postponed. Shige was supposed to be part of this drama originally scheduled for this summer. The postponement is out of how the COVID-19 situation is still ongoing, and the production team decided postponing it will protect the cast, made up of many young actors, better. They will announce the new broadcast dates once details are firm.

  • "Tegomass no Radio" will be renamed to "Masumasu Radio" from Jul 1st onwards, and will continue with Massu and Sakura. (Source)

[NEWSYonin] 3 NEWS project - 2020


[NEWSYonin] 3 NEWS project - 2020
3 NEWS will need help getting back on their feet.
Deadline : 27 June 2020
Aim: To get 3 NEWS back on their feet ASAP, be their signpost in the darkness as they have done for us.
This booklet is to help them know what the fans want/think of their strengths and any suggestions so they can regroup and restart.
All fields are non-compulsory, you can fill in what you like.
This will be printed professionally as we have done so many times before.
Lockdowns around the world are over and printers in my country are considered essential services.
This project will be printed and sent to FC.
I will email a PDF to all 3 member's radios but everyone is emailing there so I think our messages will get lost.
