HAHNA YOON

프리랜스 영문 기자 윤하나

Writer & journalist currently based in Seoul, South Korea. Previously Senior Editor at Time Out Seoul. I believe that "truth in love" is the best way to tell a story and that good journalism can't be compromised. I write on contemporary Korean culture, conversations with strangers and things I see in the world when I'm walking my dog, Hodu.
