Facing the 200th issue…
As the Editor-in-chief who is facing the 200th issue, I am seized with the thought that I should dedicate something to this memorable and glorious moment.
After that, I decided to find our own characteristic, by looking back upon the history of the Hongik Tidings. Therefore, we, the twelve editors, spent our 10-day-holiday reading every Tidings carefully, which has been published from the 1st issue to the 199th issue for 33 years.
Then, “What is the special characteristic of the Hongik Tidings?”
The answer is ironically “There is no special characteristic.”
It has always been changing its form and theme. The sentences and the designs also keep changing. According to who makes the Tidings, it is possible to create a totally new newspaper or magazine.
For instance, some of the former journalists had expressed their passion by inventing creative formats of paper. Also, others had been making up the previous fault, continuing its former form. However, all of them have been consistently worried “How can the HT grow its readership?”
“If so, did we fail to achieve our goal?”
Not at all, our way is defined now better than before.
After we knew that there was no constant system and frame, we felt like we were being filled with romance, in that we can always invent something new.
Therefore, we, the Hongik Tidings, have always been trying to make a fresh and enjoyable magazine, including truthful writings and charming designs to please our readers.
Please keep your eyes on the Hongik Tidings!
