Introduction to KoyaRhapsody

Hello! It's KoyaRhapsody here.

KoyaRhapsody is an individual journal managed by a Koyama-fan to share updates about NEWS' Koyama Keiichiro. By applying Koyama's way of "conveying" things, we'd also like to put our own filter to all the input from him, then convey the output in our own words. Our way of conveying things is by making the summary or highlight, hoping that everyone will enjoy the update in the form of narration from Koyama's radio, TV, or magazine appearance as NEWS and as an individual. Sometimes we also share the translation although it's still not our main activity (we'll do our best to understand Japanese better!).

Previously, we're more active in our Twitter account. But now that we're also active in LiveJournal, we'll focus this page to share the translation (and Kchan NEWS summary, maybe?). We're still learning to understand Japanese better so if there are misinterpretations in our entry, feel free to tell us!

Also, to know more about our activity, here are our previous updates (all of them are from our Twitter account):

💜Kchan NEWS Summary 2020 | 2021
💜TV Show Highlight/Summary 2020 | 2021
💜Magazine Summary 2020 | 2021


And of course, let's support NEWS by:

✨Subscribing to Johnny's web
✨Watching NEWS videos on J Storm Official YouTube Channel
✨Watching Smile Up! Project videos from Koyama, Masuda, and Kato on Johnny's Official YouTube Channel
✨Buying their CD/DVD release
✨Loving them with all the heart and spread NEWS love are also more than enough <3


Okay then, hope you enjoy our LiveJournal.

Everyone, please take care of your heart!

[Summary] Kchan NEWS 2021/6/15

After 9 months, it's Kato Shigeaki as the guest! It's been a long time since he came to Kchan NEWS so it's nice to listen to their talk. Kato talked a lot about his project here, which is his book Alternate and how busy he was during the period of the awards announcement, how busy he was during the STORY tour because he did his stage play and filmed his drama. There's a talk about birthday present so Koyama brought an early birthday present to Kato! Also, it's the first time "Narukami" from BURN single was played on-air and it's such a cool song!

Well then, here is the summary and Twitter thread of it. Hope you enjoy this update!

It's nice to listen to KoyaShige talk, especially in the moment when they're laughing together. In the next episode, they'll talk about their 20th anniversary! Yay!

Thank you for following the update <3

[Summary] Kchan NEWS 2021/6/8

Different from the previous episode, this time Koyama brought a lot of topics to share such as how he was acknowledge by Shofukutei Tsurube for his Yonchan TV appearance, the story when he took Disaster Prevention Specialist qualification, a little talk about a scene in Titanic movie, and his (almost regular) Koya-rap segment where he finally got his own rap name! Also, the highlight for this episode: Koyamount! Koyama was challenged again about how he loves the members and this time, he was challenged for Kato. So, obviously, Koyama showed us how powerful his love is that no one will win to him!

One personal thought about Koyama in this episode: "He's so scary!" XD

Okay then, here is the summary! Also, the Twitter thread of it. Hope you enjoy it!
