Many people do not want to leave their home. They do not want to meet other people. They are recluses. South Korea will help these people. It will give them $500 a month. The money is for people aged nine to 24. Korea wants these people to go out. This will help their mental and physical health.

About 3 per cent of young Koreans are reclusive. They have big problems living a normal life. This is because of bullying, family problems, social media, and other reasons. Korea said the $500 means young people will go out and have fewer health problems. Korea needs young people to work to help old people.
