‘Baby hearts’ is the cute pose sweeping South Korea, and coming soon to an Instagram feed near you.
Also known as the ‘finger heart’, all you need to do is cross the tips of your forefinger and thumb (like you’re about to click your fingers), and bam!
The crossed fingertips form the shape of a little heart.
You can do it with one hand. You can do it with two. Baby hearts everywhere!
It’s a sign of love, gratitude, happiness and everything gwiyeobda (which means cute).
Eva Chen, Instagram’s fashion editor and former editor of popular US magazine Lucky, did ‘baby hearts’ with influencers Irene Kim and Aimee Song at Paris Fashion Week. Chen captioned the photo on Instagram, “People in Korea aren’t doing [the peace sign] any longer, they do something called ‘Baby Hearts’”.
Chen explained that Kim and Song taught her about this pose, which isn’t surprising, considering their status as international trend-setters. Irene Kim’s ever-changing rainbow hair is the South Korean supermodel’s calling card, and her perfectly washed-out pinky-purpley bob was the obsession of fashionistas everywhere, including Australia’s own Zoe Foster Blake.
