Frequently called Koyama or Kei-chan, born May 1, 1984, currently 23 and recently graduated from college [He studied at Meiji University]. Koyama's the oldest and tallest member of NEWS. He is a chatterbox, as in yes, most of the time he is yapping away. Kei talks a mile a minute, he MCs, has his own radio show, hosts Shokura, and just talks and talks and talksxinfinity. He never gets tired of talking, but surprisingly, he knows when to stop. [Yamapi once said that Koyama stops chatting away when he knows that everyone is tired from a shoot/whatever. Such a sweetie. :D] Kei's also the mother figure in the band, he really takes care of everyone, especially Tegoshi. Everyone's really grateful to him for taking care of them. XD Also, people tease him 'single eyelids' because of his, well, single eyelids. XD Koyama owns a cat named Nyanta, and from what I've seen, he's pretty fluffy and cute. XD Nyanta's often mentioned in his jweb, and he often has playdates with Shige's imaginary cat. Yes. XD His family also owns a ramen shop [and Ryo has said that he wants Koyama to take him there XD] in where he helps out when he's there. :3
NEWS' resident prodigy, rock star and boy genius, frequently called Shige or Kato-kun, [other nicknames include Ge-shi, Shigeko, Shigeako] born July 11, 1987 in Osaka, currently 19 years old, and is in college, studying at Aoyama University with Law as his course. Shige has self-confidence issues -- he thinks he isn't that popular and drowns himself in the thought that he doesn't have a ton of fans like Pi and the others. What he doesn't know is that he actually has bajillions of fangirls
the one true pairing

Shige: So, Massu, what do you cherish?
Massu: Eh? I treasure Shige of course. Shige. What about shige?
Shige: Me? Koyama.
Massu: What?? Not me?
Shige: *laughs* No, no, no, it's Massu.
First, Koyama and Shigeaki have been bffs since God knows when [probably way before their group with a name that isn't very hard to guess :D],
If Jin and Kame have matching pinky rings, well, Kei and Shige have matching earrings. :D Shige's isn't really that obvious but if you look closely, you'll notice that him and Koyama have the same earring pierced on the same part of the ear. XD I think they should also get matching rings, but then Jin would probably kill them. XD
From this translation done by riccichan, Shige thinks that him and Koyama are totally identical.
Whenever Koyama celebrates his birthday, Shige is always the first one to greet. Koyama receives it at exactly 12 AM, and his greeting always has a passionate mail attached. XD This year, however, Shige failed to greet his bff at exactly 12 AM. Tegoshi was the one who did that. Koyama received Shige's greeting late in the morning, and as always, there was a passionate mail with it. Koyama wondered why Shige wasn't the first one to greet him.
In this [f-locked!] translation done by nbj_jweb, Shige asks Koyama if he'd be always with him, Kei anwers yes, he'll be with him forever. Isn't that really sweet? :D
Kei has a special ringtone for Shige [and the rest of NEWS. XD]. :D That's really cute! XD Kei's bad habit of not answering phone calls, mails or texts makes Shige worry so much. XD Also, Koyama and Shige talk to each other every day/every night. xD He also reminds Shige to go to sleep. :D
Koyama and Shige sort of balance each other. Kei's sillyness reminds Shige that it's alright to be silly and to have fun while Shige's seriousness reminds Kei that he has to act his age and be mature. XD
i'm sold! i need more koyashige!
