A week ago, it also was announced on Kaku Kento's blog (Nippori in Tumbling for those who saw the drama ^_^) that he was to be the new image character for the brand.
I think we can say it's official that NEWS is no longer working with RUSS-K : have a look at the new website (which is absolutely beautiful BTW... Kaku is handsome <3 <3) and you'll see that it's all about Kaku, Miura and Ishida Nicole.
Amuse Inc. has replaced Johnny's Entertainment ^_^
Check here !
I'm really sad for NEWS 'cause for me, RUSS-K was all about NEWS, and the clothes really suited the members u_u NEWS have no longer any CM as a band T__T
(But I'm still glad that three Amuse talents were chosen,especially Kaku, who is one of my favourite from this agency <3)
