Expression of the Week

뭐가 걱정이야. (What’s the worry?)


뭐 – what, a pronoun used to refer to a subject that does not need to be specified or named

걱정 - worry; concern; care


Casual – 뭐가 걱정이야

Semi-polite/polite – 뭐가 걱정입니까?


>>This expression is used to tell the other party that there is nothing to worry about.  


>>”뭐” in this expression means “what,” but does not refer to a specific object or fact, so the question is not asking about what specifically the other part is concerned about. Rather, it is offering comfort to the other party saying they should not worry about anything.
