Cool Korean Finger Family

Hey all,

Completely unrelated to China, but one of my Korean cclassmates was explaining to me what Koreans call each finger. Basically each finger is named after a family member. It's a pretty awesome system!

Thumb=Dad
Pointer Finger=Mom
Middle Finger=Older Brother
Ring Finger=Little Brother. (This one I'm not completely positive is correct. It could have been older sister but I can't remember for sure. )
Pinky=Little Sister.

I just tight this was pretty cool and would be fun too share :)

Oh my gosh that is great!! XD So they actually call those fingers that? Like appa and umma and hyung for dad, mom, and older brother? That's really neat! :D
