You can see it from the 9-second mark.

According to this Tumblr post, the fan said she was grateful that Wheein had got up from her seat to listen to her and that she had used the signs almost syllable by syllable to ensure the fan could understand.

It's unclear where she learned it, but Wheein has been seen using sign language before: She used it on a livestream last year.

Fans found the interaction between the fan and Wheein heartwarming.
