Guang Hong Ji (Chinese: 季光虹, Jì Guāng Hóng; Japanese: ジ・グァンホン Ji Guanhon) is a Chinese figure skater featured in Yuri!!! on Ice.
Like Yuri Plisetsky, Guang Hong also makes his senior debut in the current season. Guang Hong placed third at his Grand Prix debut in Skate America, but does not place at the Cup of China in his home country. Guang Hong placed third at the Golden Spin held before the Barcelona GPF.
Guang Hong is a short and slender young man with messy, medium brown hair and chestnut-brown eyes. He has faint freckles and is sometimes seen with a slight flush.
During his short program, Guang Hong wears a black outfit with a shimmering magenta trim.
During his free skate, Guang Hong wears an olive-colored top with a shimmering pattern and a black and gold trim. The front is low-cut and is secured with a decorative blue crystal button.
He is initially seen as shy and innocent, as shown when he expressed discomfort at Victor's stripping, but his free-skate program revealed a more "intense" aspect of his personality. Guang Hong enjoys using SNS immensely, and he looks up to Victor Nikiforov.
He was able to land a quad toe loop for the first time in his short program at the Cup of China, despite it being only recently added to his roster of jumps.
Guang Hong and Phichit are good friends, and he admires Phichit and his skating. Phichit is the reason Guang Hong takes up using SNS to connect with fans and to post lots of selfies.
Guang Hong and Leo are good friends who both have a deep love for SNS. They both competed at Skate America and the Cup of China. Guang Hong's free program depicted himself as an assassin and Leo as an ally, with him eventually taking a bullet in order to save Leo. Even after ending their Grand Prix run, the both of them still talk to each other from their respective countries, and talk over the phone while watching the Grand Prix Final via livestream.
