A finger heart is a gesture in which a person (such as a K-pop star) performs a heart shape using their index finger and thumb.
In South Korea, it is a known symbol among K-pop stars, as stated above, and their fans and has popularly been performed using the thumb and index finger. The thumb and index finger gesture has become popular across Asia due to the popularity of K-pop and Korean dramas, and increasingly so in other parts of the world as a factor of the Korean Wave.
The gesture is very similar to the "ask for money" gesture, thus causing misinterpretations.
