Yamashita Tomohisa talked about NEWS during a radio show “Sound Tripper!” (InterFM) on 18th December 2015.
The theme for this week was “Year 2011”.
For Yamashita, it was the year he left NEWS to go solo.
Reflecting on that year, he confessed “At that time i had to do what i was thinking. I didn’t want to continue, I was self-centered. Indeed i was still childish then. When i turned solo, i started to realise the importance of having a group and comrades.”
He revealed that he continues to be connected with NEWS members in some ways.
“Recently i met Masuda Takahisa at a TV station and talked about going for drinks. Koyama Keiichiro also told me that he changed numbers.”
Seeing them working hard, he feels like he has to do the same.
