"It won't happen again, the same past won't happen twice.
I realized the value of the power of love

if you're not a NEWS fan, and you watch their N.E.W.S. concert and Utsukoi Concert consecutively, you might end up asking, "Why are those fans crying so much every time they have a concert? Shouldn't they be happy?" (;￣□￣)ﾉ
truly enough, NEWS were always experiencing the downside of the entertainment business back then. their formation was filled with doubts, everyone was from different groups when they were still jrs. they themselves were thinking that "debuting" is impossible. they already lost 3 members on their first few years. with that kind of phase, everyone of their fans would be leaving... fans would be tired of waiting for something they're not sure would ever come back...
it was during Johnny's 2006-2007 countdown (watch HERE
) when NEWS came back with 6 people in the group. that show began without NEWS at all, there was Yamapi and Tegomass, and almost all JE talents were there... midway the show, NEWS members came out. a lot of fans were shouting, screaming out of happiness. NEWS fans indeed are strong, not giving up with them.
i'm pretty sure most of the fans started following them when they were 6.
after their return, they had a fruitful comeback with lots of concerts and singles.
came year 2010-2011, as much as the fandom was trying to believe NEWS would be so active in the show business, there it came again. the "waiting". even though no one among the guys were vocal about NEWS being inactive (almost like a hiatus), fans were all calling out. "where is NEWS?" there's that doubt of seeing them ever again as a group. some were losing hope. some were living everyday, patiently waiting and believing...
but when they did return, it's not the six people fans were looking forward to see, but four guys who are tearful yet fighting.
for the second time, NEWS returned, showing themselves together and shining during the Johnny's 2011-2012 countdown (watch HERE
this time, with an assurance of not betraying the fans again. we may not be sure about the future, but NEWS is still with us until now, Koyama, Massu, Shige and Tego, the four of them who know so well how important their presence is for the fans, they returned our feelings, and it's enough for us to believe it'll be forever. :)***kinda late on posting this. blame my busy weekend.
