Young people who hide themselves from society are called "Hikikomori" (or hidden youths). This name came from Japan in 1998. In 2004, this phenomenon began to appear in Hong Kong as well. Research in 2006 found that hidden youths in Hong Kong almost reached 20,000. In 2014, follow-up research discovered that the number has doubled but corresponding counseling services did not increase accordingly. | Prof Wong Cheong-wing said hidden youths are afraid to step out of their comfort zone and this is a serious problem. They often end up suffering alone. | Dr. Paul Wong, a clinical psychologist, estimates that 2% of young people in Hong Kong are hidden youths. He also explains the ways of categorization. | Ah So, a social worker, feels that the society puts too much emphasis on academic excellence. As a result, hidden youths feel that they don't belong to the society. | Man, Ting and Hoi are once hidden youths. They talk about the reasons why they used to hide from society. | Prof Paul Wong Wai Ching points out that there are different reasons why young men and women choose to be "hidden".
