South Korean handshape

It seems to me that the best representation would be with the number six
symbol but with the index finger made horizontal to separate it from the
other fingers and connect it with the thumb.

Of course, I'm only going by what I see in the photo and don't know
which aspects of the handshape are important, but it looks to me like
the index finger and thumb are together and all the other fingers are
clustered together, and there's a gap between those two clusters. This
is what I'd be trying to express by my alterations to symbol 6.
