Mary H.K. Choi
I am thrilled to announce that Mary H.K. Choi will join the MTV Style team as senior editor on March 7. The prolific, whip-smart and much-sought-after Choi will lead efforts across MTV Style site editorial, video franchises, and social media platforms—all with her inimitable voice and style.
Mary H.K. Choi, currently a senior editor at Complex magazine, is one of the funniest, most engaging editorial forces on the pop culture landscape today. As documented in her “All The Young Girls” column for the New York Times Opinionator blog, after earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Textile and Apparel, a fainting spell/Technicolor freak-out precipitated a career U-turn to a magazine job. Three years later, she became founding editor in chief of the revered ladymag Missbehave (RIP). When she hasn’t been writing about music, girls, and trends, she’s been taking on movies for The Awl and Wired, snacks for The Daily, comics for Marvel with “Lady Deadpool,” and how “All Dudes Learned To Dress And It Sucks” for The Hairpin. I’ve made this required reading at the office. You think I’m trying to make a joke, but no, really.
So! Three cheers, high fives and warm welcomes all around. We can’t wait.
