NEWSRING (Nov 7)
It was Tegoshi’s turn to update
Tegoshi started by saying he was on his way to a foreign country while he was writing his update, and wouldn’t be in Japan for half of November.
For shiritori Tegoshi picked his own name ‘Tegoshi Yuya’ and talked about how he really likes his name since it’s so unique and it’s good as an entertainer since it helps people remember you. On the other hand, it’s not good for instance at the hospital when he’s called to see the doctor because then everyone turns to look.
He also talked about the future when he gets married and has kids they’ll have the same name and be able to empathize.
