Recent works have showed that strong emission line galaxies are ubiquitous among high-redshift star-forming galaxies. The presence of strong emission lines raises important questions about the evolution of galaxy spectral energy distribution, and requires careful consideration in studies of high-redshift galaxies. In this talk, I will briefly review these studies and discuss their implications.
