Koyama reported in memai tonight that he has wanted to do an acting job but will still be doing news every at the same time. For the weekday performances he will be heading to the theatre directly from NTV and they will start at a later time of 19:30. However due to the fact he does a longer show on Wednesday, there will be no play performances on that day of the week.
He acknowledged that rehearsing and performing a play while still doing his live broadcasts of every is a challenge. However he also believes that he has been given a big chance with this play and we can only wait for more details to be released about the play itself.
Congratulations to him for adding another challenge to his already very busy schedule.
And in a very timely moment, Myojo has printed another 10,000 character interview in which Koyama reveals some of his most upfront comments about the events of 2011-2012 and what NEWS means in his life.
If you haven't read it, you can find a translation here - Koyama Keiichiro: Myojo 10,000 Character Interview "Stand by Me" - and perhaps have a few tissues on stand by.
Here's to a very special man and may he have a wonderful birthday concert later today in Osaka.
