There's actually a special meaning behind it.

If you're obsessed with Itaewon Class, Hi Bye, Mama!, The King: Eternal Monarch, and other popular K-dramas, then chances are you've been following the cast on Instagram, too! And if you're a true-blue fan, then perhaps you've noticed that most of their recent posts also feature an identical pose. FYI, it's not a random pose at all—it is, in fact, a sign language that means "I respect you." It features one hand doing a thumbs up on the palm of the other hand, and it's actually meant to serve as a tribute to brave medical frontliners who have been battling against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In case you're wondering, the now-viral pose is known in Korea as the #ThanksToChallenge, and famous K-celebs have been joining in—including Song Hye Kyo, Park Bo Gum, Ji Chang Wook, Bae Suzy, Kim Go Eun, and more! In response, medical frontliners are encouraged to post a photo of themselves doing a thumbs-up pose, which is a sign language for "I felt proud."
