Main article: Uniform Guide: Hong Kong
Hong Kong has choppy dark brown hair that comes down to his jaw and lighter brown eyes. He wears a burgundy duangua with black trim and oversized sleeves, and dark brown trousers. His eyebrows are noticeably thicker than the other Asian characters, due to a curse put on him by England.
In several design sketches, he has a gold sash around his waist, and wears long white spats over his boots. In other early sketches, his duangua fastened down the front.
Personality and Interests
Little is known about Hong Kong, other than that he was under British control for many years and the property of England, who cursed him to have thick eyebrows. It is noted that one cannot really tell what is on his mind, due to his lack of showing visible emotion.
He speaks in a mixture of Japanese and English, (sometimes Cantonese) with a Gyaru-o dialect. Before appearing in the fake preview for Hetalia: Axis Powers volume 3 where he "promised" China he would not draw explicit pictures anymore, he appeared in artwork for the series and was featured in the profile page of the second volume of Hetalia: Axis Powers.

Little has been revealed about their relationship, other than Hong Kong having been raised by him before he became British territory. The two were eventually reunited when England's control ceased, though Hong Kong had been rebelling against China and had requested freedom, claiming China was too outdated. It was also revealed that Hong Kong keeps a book of funny pictures of China. He respectfully (?) refers to China as xian shen.
Main Article: England
Hong Kong was under his control for many years, and was often scolded for lighting loud firecrackers, which would constantly startle England. By the time Hong Kong returned to his "siblings", England had cursed his eyebrows to grow thick just like his.
Main Article: Taiwan
Taiwan and Hong Kong have been showed together a few times. In one strip, Taiwan asked Hong Kong for his help in (unsuccessfully) rearranging her room to be more appealing.
- Before his cameo in volume three of the published manga, Hong Kong's first speaking role was in the special drama CD Hetalia Fantasia where he acted as China's assistant.
- Some fans believe that his birthday is the same day as Canada's. At midnight on July 1, 1997, sovereignty of Hong Kong was transferred from the United Kingdom back to China. Since then, this day has been celebrated as Hong Kong Reclamation Day, but whether or not this is his actual birthday is unknown.
- In a recent blog post, his potential names were revealed to be Wang Jia Long (Wong Kha Loung in Cantonese) and Li Xiao Chun (Lei Siu Chun in Cantonese). He was also given the English name Leon.
