Da-Hyun Hong
Hi my name's Da-Hyun but you can call me Michelle! I've previously served as an Entertainment reporter, Beats Editor, and Entertainment Section Editor. This year, I am the Editor-In-Chief of the HiLite. Besides journalism, I like to spend my time playing the flute and piano, dancing, watching too much YouTube, and unnecessarily binging TV shows. Look to the right for all my past work :)
