NEWS makes you happy! Makes the world happier!
NOW: First of all, my most important aim and dream is to have a great success in the tour that is going to start soon. I wish members and staff will become one in order to create something satisfying and I hope the fans will understand our purposes.
5-10 YEARS: Some time ago for a TV show I went to the Amazon to bring a parabolic antenna to the kids of the place, I'd like to go there again to see how those kids grew up thanks to what we brought them. Going there is really tough though (laughs).
FUTURE: I wish that when we will be old men NEWS members will still hung out to chat and remember the past over a cup of tea. I want fans to come too (laughs).
Right now my only dream is to have a successful tour. The definition of success is different for everybody, but we self-produced the lives following our own ideas, the biggest happiness for me would be that the fans will smile and have fun coming to see us. Then, I think many people saw it already, some time ago I went to the Amazon for a TV show. We brought there a parabolic antenna and I wish to see what happened to the kids who got a chance to receive instruction thanks to us. I hope I will be able to go back there in 5 years or so. For us education is something obvious but for them it's ground-breaking. I'll be happy if I gave them good days full of new dreams. Going to the Amazon was very important to me too. I realized how wonderful and essential is to do your best for somebody else, I can't explain myself well but my point of view on life really changed. Going there also brought me a brand new self-confidence, from now on I won't be afraid of anything, I'm positive that I will be able to overcome everything.
About the distant future, I want all the members with whom I worked together to be happy, that would be the ideal. I will never deny NEWS. The group that exists now is because of the past we had. That's why when we will be old and inclined to look back to the time we were young, it would be great if all the members could hung out, drink tea and talk of the past laughing. This is a dream I really want to come true in the future. In order to do that, right now we need to establish the new NEWS! We will never lose!
NOW: I want to come and meet as soon as possible all the fans from all over the world! I'm the type of person who believes only in what he directly sees with his own eyes, I want to see the happy faces of the fans from different countries and be sure of their love.
5-10 YEARS: Seen my kind of job, of course I want to be the number one. I want the group to become so big that everybody will naturally think of NEWS when hearing the word "Johnny's".
FUTURE: There are many things I know being a talent, I'd like to keep being one and try to raise new talents too.
I often go abroad for work, there I was approached by fans many times. I'm so happy to know that people from many different countries listen to our music, watch the lives DVD and support us. One day I absolutely want to go meet them! Then, I want NEWS to keep on with their activities, grow up, and become the group that stands for Johnny's Entertainment. I'm not the type to hope that "we will go on selling and stay in this world in a way or another". I want to be the number one, I want to climb up at cost of pushing the others down! Without this kind of passion you cannot stay in the show business. It doesn't matter how much time it will take, I want new to become a powerful group that will give energy to everybody at first sight! In order to do that I will just keep on living everyday doing my best. My dream is simply to improve more and more.
Another dream is that one day I'd like to use my experience to produce new talents. I read many business books, there's a wish that all the best managers share: "I want people to be happy, I want to make the world a better place". Johnny-san is the same. A good entertainment produces continuously thinking of fans' happiness. I want to do something like that too, there are many things I know because of my experience as talent, I want to use all of this and help creating the best talents of the future. It's a difficult dream. To make it come true first of all I need to improve my own skills as much as I can, right now they are not strong enough. That's why right now all I can do is to try all my efforts everyday to grow up.
NOW: I've started shaping my body for the theatre show and I keep exercising. I do it everyday to be ready for the lives. My dream is to get a 8-pack! (laughs)
5-10 YEARS: Usually I never create objectives or dreams for myself. My only dream though is to keep doing this job. Continuation is the most important thing.
FUTURE: I'd love to live a happy quiet life with my important family in a fashionable house, no matter if it'll be small. I want to live in a tasteful, artistic house!
Until now I've always been the most muscular one in NEWS, because I've been always exercising in these 10 years (laughs). Lately though Koyama surpassed me! I lost some weight and Koyama became really big and muscled. Now that I'm the number two for the first time I'm thinking whether to train again to overcome Koyama again, or maybe try to become lighter than Tegoshi (laughs). What about being skinner than Tegoshi and taller than Shige?! (laughs) Well, now that the tour is close I'm exercising to be in a perfect shape. I've started training a lot again for my theatre show, I want to go on like this. In particular I want to get great abs, I aim to a 8-pack! (laughs)
Talking about a dream I want to achieve in the next 5~10 years is honestly very difficult...I'm not the type to create objectives for myself, I almost never think to my dreams. My dream after all is to keep working and to keep the parts of me who will never change and the ones that are changing, this is something important to me. In the distant future I dream, or better I desire, to live in a fashionable house. It should be like a shooting studio (laughs). I'd like something that expresses a good taste. I think it's important to be in contact with arts and beautiful things to refine your own tastes. That's why I want to watch many plays, listen to a lot of music, I want to keep living in an artistic way. I think that fashion is art too, I will always cherish it. As results of my refinement, one day I want to live in a pretty house and have a happy life with my precious family.
NOW: Talking of near dreams can I mention something really small? First of all I want to buy a new fridge (laughs). I'd like to renew all my home appliances. Well, I think I can fulfill soon this kind of dream (laughs).
5-10 YEARS: This is my personal wish, I love movies and one day, no matter how long it will take, I'd be very happy to work in the production of a movie.
FUTURE: I don't know what kind of activities we will have in the future, but it'd be great if a song by NEWS will one day be printed on a school textbook. I want NEWS to be a group important for Japan.
I love to search and watch household electric appliances. I get excited just looking at them. Right now my biggest aim is to buy a new fridge, my plan is to get a better one (laughs). I also want to renew my washing machine, I'm checking different things. In a most distant future I'd like one day to be involved in the production of a movie, no matter how much time it will take. I watch a lot of movies because I just love them, but to me it's also a way of study for my future. Writing novels is my life work too of course, but also that is a study, because who knows if one day one of my novels will become a movie. It's thrilling how everything could be connected in the end. This is something I want to come true, even if it will take 5 or 10 years.
Another dream I have is for NEWS to become a group of which Japan can be proud. For example it would be wonderful if one of our songs could be printed in a school textbook. To be important for the education, to become a great group that everybody knows and accept as good, to have songs that everybody wants to sing. Well, being mentioned in a textbook like historic characters would be already enough actually (laughs). Of course none of us knows what will kind of paths we'll walk in the future, I'd just want my nephew to say: "Grandpa's song is in the textbook!" - "Isn't it cool?" - "It's awesome!" (laughs) It'd be great to have such a conversation (laughs). In order to achieve all these dreams there's nothing else to do but to live every instant trying my very best. I wish that doing that I will be able to walk by nature many different paths.
That's the end of the pamphlet translation :)
I really like the dreams for the future of the members, especially Koyama's one ♥ I also admire Tegoshi's passion (but please don't push down the other idols DD:) and Shige's ambition. I hope everything they wish will come true!
