“Hachuping” or “Heartsping” is actually a character from the very popular Korean children’s animated series,  Catch! Teenieping,  and is one of the most famous characters.

But why Hachuping doll given to Jennie at the airport? Well, all because of a viral nickname that the idol was given by a 5-year-old kid.

In a video on the popular YouTube channel  Kizzle , young children are asked to choose the prettiest idols.

At the end of the video, the girls were asked to choose a nickname for the most beautiful idol.

The little girl eventually chose Jennie and immediately said her nickname is “Hachuping”.

Ever since the video was released, BLINKs have loved the comparison, and it’s no surprise that they wanted to honor the comparison with an airport gift.
