고교수: ...뭐 눈엔 뭐만 보이니까.

Expression of the Week
뭐 눈엔 뭐만 보이니까 (it takes one to know one)
뭐 – what
눈 – eye
보이다 – v. to see
Casual – 뭐 눈엔 뭐만 보이니까
>> This expression literally means “something is seen (only) to someone’s eyes” which is a saying used to indicate that you will only see what you like or are interested in.
>>The first “뭐,” which means “what,” refers to a subject that is doing the seeing and the second “뭐” refers to the object that is being looked at.
>> 엔 is an abbreviated version of “애는” in this case 눈엔 is short for 눈에는.
