A “body embroidery” game which is spreading among young people has aroused public concern. According to media reports, the “game” allegedly originated from the Japanese dark fantasy Tokyo Ghoul in which the character Juzo Suzuya likes to “self-stitch” with red thread. Many enthusiasts of the game believe it to be “an ordinary habit” and teach newcomers how to sew their skin in a way to make it painless. Analysts, however, blamed young people’s maladaptation to a fast-paced and high-pressure society, saying that those young people have no channel to let out their emotions and have to turn to self-harm as an outlet. Given such games can cause both mental and physical harm, analysts suggested the parents pay more attention to their children’s inner world and take them to psychologists if they find their children engaging in this hobby.
