While some can’t help but love the “ELEVEN” singer for her aegyo, other internet users who saw the clip are focused on Wonyoung’s “third” hand gesture.

In particular, Jang was criticized in the women’s community after counting with her fingers, and the reason is that she allegedly counted in Chinese style.

Looking at the clip, Jang Wonyoung’s hand gesture is reminiscent of “Okay,” but netters explained that it’s how Chinese count No. 3.

In China, the index finger, middle finger, and ring finger are often raised at the same time to express the number 3, but in some areas, such as in the aforementioned country, the number 3 is said to be expressed like Jang Wonyoung’s hand gesture, like the “ok” sign.

Fans are expressing displeasure when Jang Wonyoung, who acted cute just to be loved at the fan signing event, once again showed her reportedly Chinese roots. Previously, there are people speculating that the “After LIKE” singer is of Chinese descent and is absurdly criticized for it.

Another reason netizens raised their brows was due to her “excessive” cute act. Even in the past, Jang Wonyoung who appeared in MBC’s “Point of Omniscient Interfere” faced malicious comments for eating large strawberries using both hands.

In response, her fans defended her and claimed that Jang Wonyoung also made the gesture when expressing the number 3 on Mnet’s “Produce 48,” and that it was clearly a habit.

“She’s so pretty, so whatever she does, it gets rejected.”

“Aren’t there a lot of people who do it with numbers 3 and okay poses?”

“People are always jealous when it’s about Jang Wonyoung.”
