25 Tegoshi Facts

   1. Entered Jyannis December 1, 2002
   2. He took the exam for Aoyama Gakuin where Kato Shigeaki studies,  but he failed the test and instead passed the test for Horikoshi  High School and is now in Waseda University studying Psychology. ( thanks dizzy_starshine)
   3. He is called the RainMan because when doing photoshoots outdoors, he usually goes first and when he does, it always rains. It happened in the Hoshi wo Mezashite Jacket Photoshoot. In addition to this, when he was filming Gekidan Engimono it also rained. It also rained when they were filming the final scenes of Shissou even though the weather report said it was going to be clear and so they can't shoot the scene. The same thing also happened on the first day of My Boss My Hero.
   4. He has a dog named Tinny which he calls his girlfriend and that he spoils.  His nickname for her is Tiny ( thanks tegogo)
   5. He idolized Kimura Takuya of SMAP and has posters of him in his house and he wishes to have a duet with him one day.
   6. He played soccer for about 10 years and still plays it occasionally when he has the time.
   7. He is double jointed.
   8. He admires Celine Dion so much that he mimics her sometimes and has all her DVDS and watches her in reference to performing.
   9. He always carries a LARGE box of perfume in his bag.
  10. He always enters the Jyannis office with a "Yoo-hoo!" - Yamashita Tomohisa
  11. He treats Koyama Keiichiro like his Oniisan and often goes out with him for Karaoke
  12. He formed a "black hair alliance" with Nishikido Ryo and Ryo will only sing a duet with him if he reverts to his old black hair.
  13. He has acrophobia, because he got stuck at a 4th floor of an apartment and somehow he needed to jump off. He landed safely but from then on, he got scared of heights.
  14. He admits that he does not have Fashion Sense and asks Ryo to be his Fashion Guru.
  15. Tegoshi tends to be clingy. He is clingy to everyone and often gives them hugs before he leaves for the day or in greeting.
  16. Concerning dancing, Tegoshi took intense dance lessons with Massu during the hiatus because he was tired of people saying that he can't dance.
  17. His favorite food is Yakiniku and would often invite people to join him to go there.
  18. He is a text addict and texts everyone "Good Morning" and "Good night" everyday.
  19. He speaks to Massu everyday after work/in the evening to check on him. Furthermore, TegoMass makes it a point to go out to do something together at least once a week to keep good friendship.
  20. George Miller handpicked him for his role in Happy Feet. When asked why he chose Tegoshi Yuya, he answered "Because he is full of confidence, and it is the very element I want to enforce to the youth."
  21. When taking pictures, Tegoshi calls his own shots piccasso like because he takes of the weirdest things and usually they come out blurry.
  22. For Valentine's day, Tegoshi attempted to bake everyone in NEWS and the staff some cookies, and they came out tasting great but a little too hard. He describes his cookies as "tough love"
  23. Tegoshi's locker is like a girl's because it has a lot of cute stuff in it, perfume, mirror and pictures of NEWS, TegoMassu, Koichi Senpai and it is very neat and colorfully arranged. -Massu
  24. Tegoshi wrote the lyrics to Over,(composed by Kato Shigeaki and duet with Shige), and Trashbox. He is a budding lyricist and loves to come over Shige's house to compose songs.
25.  Tegoshi also has his license and can drive.

Marikit Tegoshi

Tesshi is the best singer in NEWS and I agree. The boy is simply super talented. He is also a boy whom I had watched grow up on screen. He was a cute innocent boy with a lot of energy, even naive to the point that where in the SUMMARY Backstage, Tegoshi was doted upon, teased and cared by everyone. Because, back then, Tegoshi was a baby and he was very endearing. I think that That is one of his best qualities. Being endearing like that, is his charm.

Tegoshi was born to be cute. Everything he does is cute ( even his things are) and he was also born to sing and perform onstage. That natural talent is harnessed and I believe he will be one of the biggest singers in Japan. He ust has that kind of aura. His voice is beautiful and smooth and it improves daily. He also works very hard as we saw his improvement ( major improvement in dancing) But what I think is this: Tegoshi needs to find his own identity like Shige did and not imitate others too much or try to be sexy or cool because sexy or cool... well I think does not suit him

Tegoshi is a fanboy whether he admits it or not. He imitates people and usually end up failing when he does. I wish that he just get his own style or go back to the innocent, naive and cute Tegoshi that everyone adores. Tesshi, you are adorable. This is why I LOVE YOU.

There's loads of stuff here I'd never heard of before anywhere. Would you be able to put sources? He's studying Psychology too not biology and Horikoshi is his highschool not a university.
Sorry if this sounds rude, I don't mean it too.

I am laughing so hard about Tego & Ryo's black hair alliance ahaha
dizzy_starshinedizzy_starshine on May 2nd, 2007 06:07 pm (UTC)
I've never heard of him having a sister. He's said many times he's an only child like Shige.
marikitinsane_desire on May 2nd, 2007 06:08 pm (UTC)
i know he's an only child too... but i have to research again

I think Tegoshi is the one I know least about, but he's really cute in a little-boy-next-door kind of way. (jailbait anyone? *laughs*) I even called my new fish after him cuz it just suited him. (the fish, that is...) He (Tego-fishie) keeps disappearing on me tho. *sulks*

Anyway, I love these little exposés on our lads and hope you have a safe trip home! <3

XDDDDD I think I fell in love with him more when I downloaded the Can You Feel The Love Tonight song. I know it really isn't the best, but *squeal* Lion King is my favorite cartoon. XP

And I just keep on asking myself, "How can you be so cute?!" XD; Thanks for the unbelievable and adorably cute info.

Now to see who's winning between YamaPi and Massu. XDDDD;

NYAHAHA shige is SMARTER than tegoshi XDDD *runs away*
i am glad koyashige is back. but this is the wrong place to comment about it right?

ahem, looking at old videos, i think it has always been shige that is the worst dancer in NEWS, he just didn't admit it.
tegomassu is shooo cyyuutte~
*pets tego*
marikit: shige bitchinsane_desire on May 3rd, 2007 07:50 am (UTC)

oOOo...he's his cute, personality and all!!

16. Concerning dancing, Tegoshi took intense dance lessons with Massu during the hiatus because he was tired of people saying that he can't dance.

きゃしい ♥kissurabu on May 3rd, 2007 04:34 am (UTC)
thanks to tegoshi lovin! ^^ but i read somewhere that he passed both Aoyama Gakuin + Waseda and also Meiji University but he chosed Waseda. (i believe because Waseda is on a higher rank than the two uni.

his course is like psychology but its not psychology itself, its human science. where its mostly about statistics etc...

Tegoshi=girl. only the gay people likes celine dion. XDD
Naoimizu17 on May 3rd, 2007 07:19 am (UTC)
Tesshi! How can anyone be that ADORABLE? XD

He doesn't look like a soccer player to me ^^;; But I guess that's because of his image as the Baby of the group.

What image do think suits him if it isn't the Baby of the group? O.o?
nagi, the professional dreamer: tegodreaming_nagi13 on May 3rd, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC)
tego was really made to be adorable, ne? any way i look at him, all i could really say is "oh, but he's so cute!" i wouldn't mind him clinging on to me since i'd be hugging him back, calling him "baby" like i do my niece, nephew, dog, and stuffed toys since they're all so cute! if i were his older sister, i'd dote on him incessantly.

coincidentally, my siblings and i find mumble so adorable that we decided to add a stuffed penguin to our collection of arctic stuffed toys (composed of a husky and a polar bear). and if it's a penguin, it just HAS to be mumble! and my sister searched far and wide until she got one (in the build-your-own-bear place in singapore where you stuff your own toy and name it and all). and when he was casted as mumble in the japanese-dubbed version, i thought, "makes perfect sense!" they're both adorable!

i've also got to say, hands down, that tego's the best singer in NewS. and who would've thought that he has a to-die-for voice, right? add to that the fact that he's working real hard in everything, giving his 100%. i really admire his spirit and i wish that i could also be like that in all my endeavors.

thanks for the profile! great job!!!

*________________* Le dies from Tegoshi overdose. I love him so much .I cant comment on anything cos i want to comment on everything XDDD I'd definitely love him being as clingy as he wants with me ahahhaha.I'd tie him with a pink bow and carry him with me everywhere ;_; his voice is enchanting.And he's only 19,oh my...Arghhh we definitely learnt where he got that recently acquired dancing skill.My eyes popped out XD

The only thing that doesnt really impress me is the Celine Dion bit.As previously said,it's a rather gay idolNothing wrong with gay people,but i hate how it's forced upon all members of JE. I'd hate to confirm Tegoshi actually is gay. Having a girly locker is a rather strong indication,but i'll try to ignore XD

Thanks for the very informative profile <3333
Andy Kayen: bitchkayen on May 4th, 2007 05:40 am (UTC)
>> Nothing wrong with gay people,but i hate how it's forced upon all members of JE. <<
Oh. The old 'nothing wrong BUT' thing. *rolleyes*

"Forced upon"? First of all, that tells me you DO have a problem with gay people because you consider homosexuality to be something people are _accused_ of. Second, suggesting 'gayness' while still praising marriage etc is part of the J&A modus operandi, and something which Western fans clearly have problems interpreting from a Japanese sociocultural perspective. (For example, gay men are often portrayed as ideal marriage material by Japanese media.) Third, most JE boys act 'gay' from a Western perspective, and so Western fans will pick up on that. It's inevitable. Some JE boys also act distinctly 'gay' from a Japanese perspective. Which would be because some of them are. (Which, in light of the cultural context and history of J&A, is not at all surprising. There are few more attractive career choices in Japan for young gay guys, I would imagine, than J&A.)

>> I'd hate to confirm Tegoshi actually is gay. <<

But I do agree that few straight guys are big fans of Celine. She's, like, the new Barbra. But that may be different in Japan too. Who knows. I mean, she's popular over there just in general. Not that I'm suggesting T is straight. I'm not suggesting anything. Just pointing out a few things.

Lovely collection of facts! ♥ :D
somniumobscurum on May 4th, 2007 11:22 am (UTC)
Not the best place for this conversation,but i'll reply.:)

Of course there is a "but" always... I tend to be skeptical.I also abstain from hippie-like ways of thinking (I'm not saying you are like this,u just gave me the initiative to talk generally),acceptance of everything and anything and whatever,good or bad,because of supposed feeling of brotherhood and world peace. These things are not achieved by just throwing whatever inside a melting pot with a supposed attitude of superiority and broad-mindedness. In fact nowadays I notice an anti-anti-gay complex.Whoever touches that sensitive/taboo subject is tagged as sexist and is frowned upon because omfg how could he even dare to think like that!!!111

I didn't insult gay rights,I just said it's very wrong to sneakily force something like that to your "employees",especially in a tender age in which they cannot distinguish what is what and have not yet developed a sexual identity (for example dressing them up like sugarplums,or shoot pictures with straightforward homosexual implications like immitating obvious sexual positions like some Ryo x Uchi pics i saw,or very young Massu holding a...banana???under-age Akame almost kissing on the lips and so on...Nani sore??), especially when all this is presented as "IDOL" to the vast public and to an unknown number of underage kids,which will very well be influenced to follow what their idols are doing.When in fact their idols dont know what they're doing either,cos somebody else dictated them to do - and we should note that the person who's the head of decisions is a creepy paedophile who has been accused several times of molesting his "employees"-.Apart from the "kawaii-ness" and your daily needs of "fanservice"...do you really think this is healthy?[Just my two cents but..if JE was not some kind of media-mafia,Johnny could have been in jail many times.]

Being gay is ok and does not make you a lesser person,but at the same time,it should not be presented as the "example" for everybody to follow.Which is what's actually happening all around.Theoritically speaking a gay man may be ideal for a household,but practically speaking..wtf?Woman x gay man = ? sisters maybe?Definitely not a couple though,which may also explain the ridiculously high number oh male hosts that i saw aaaall over Japan...Japanese relationships...okashi okashiii @_@

Most of us want/need to take all this light-heartedly,cos deep inside there still is a romanticism through which we view some things in their purest form.Like the familiarity between boys,which might be interpreted as gay with western criteria - as you said - .For example i see pictures like that and what my heart tells me is that "oooh they're just being cute,because they love each other in a pure way" and I melt and die from cuteness and love. But i know this is just me being dead romantic,while in fact we don't live in a romantic world and this picture was not made only for me to see, but also serves a second,darker purpose...which if you ask me..is encouraging paedophily.Which apparently is very high in Japan especially.Does something ring a bell?:(

Excuse me if my ethics and morals sound old-fashioned or strict to some of you, but I'm really concerned about human relationships and values like family getting out of hand and/or extinct.I've always held on to my idealism and romanticism and i hate how some people poison it,using unaware trojan horses (members of JE in this case)to explore the young people's psyche.I'm really REALLY curious to see what these boys will say after 10 years,when Johnny will be retired/deceased.When there won't be censorship or threat..

Gay or straight,Celine Dion or not,blue or pink,Tegoshi is an outstanding singer - the best in JE ,at least for me - and an adorable person.His personal life is not something that affects me, but you know, i can't avoid such thoughts sometimes.Anyway,I'll just put my head in the sand once more and pretend everything is ok,ne :)We live in a material world,so I'll just enjoy the consumption and wave my remorse goodbye - for a while -.

Za Boom!: private KKgummykid on May 27th, 2007 11:31 pm (UTC)
I can barely address the scope of misinformation and muddled thinking presented above. You are promoting your homophobic assumptions in a fandom that would not exist if it weren't for the gay founder!

A) You are confusing Homosexuality with Pedophilia.

B) The charges against Johnny Kitagawa that you refer to weren't directly against his own actions, but involved responsibility as president of the company where the alleged abuses took place amongst his employees. However, he was found NOT guilty. Calling him, personally, a pedophile and sexual abuser is an unsupported claim that you present here as a known fact.

C) Being gay - or not - has nothing to do with so-called traditional family values. Gay families do exist, and are not necessesarily the hotbeds of depravity that you seem to worry about. Families with heterosexual parents are still the majority and are nowhere near problem free, even under the most supposedly ideal circumstances.

D) And yes, being "anti anti-gay" on grounds such as those stated above DOES indeed, make you a bigot. Your views are incredibily offensive and hurtful to a lot of gay Johnny's fans and it saddens me to see that you have no sensitivity to this.

I apologize to insane_desire and the rest of the community for responding to this post and contributing to the spam, but I just couldn't let this one go by.

is now in Waseda University studying Psychology.
Uwah~ Really? I know I read somewhere (on several instances) that he's taking up Information Technology (or Science...whichever). ^^;

And, yeah, Tegorin needs to stop trying to be someone he's not and revert to the old clueless one...that's his selling point, anyway. :D

and whah..please tell me he's not gay????
kyuri_chankyuri_chan on May 12th, 2007 08:38 am (UTC)
Ano, I saw this in Japanese Wiki so dunno if it's reliable but before Tegoshi transferred to Horikoshi high school he went to Meiji Daigaku Fuzoku from Junior high 1st year to high school 1st year.
