Pan originally meant that Wen Wan was not round enough, and it needed constant rubbing with hands to make smooth. This process is called “pan”. The term originated from the cross talk “Wen Wan” by Meng Hetang and Zhou Jiuliang in “Crosstalk There are Newcomers”, and it became popular through Douyin and other platforms.
Too dry! Too rugged! And not round at all! Pan TA!
Gradually, people used the verb “pan” to express their love, because a thing is so cute that you want to put it in your hands and knead it repeatedly. A user on Douyin posted a video about Pan Ta, which later caused a “everything is available”. Since “Panta” became popular on Douyin, it’s original meaning has changed.
