뭐라고요 (mwolagoyo) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

This is more a of phrase of the day. This is something that you’ve probably heard more times than you can count and though you may already know what it means, you may not necessarily know how it’s used or when to use it.

뭐라고요 (mwolagoyo) | “excuse me; beg your pardon”

Usually when this is translated during a K-drama, it’s translated to mean, “what did you say?” This phrase is one of those phrases that you should be careful of your tone when you use it.

Why?

Because it can come off as a bit pushy or rude depending on how you say it. However, if you honestly did not hear/understand what the person said, don’t be afraid to use it. I personally prefer to say “네?” but that’s just a preference.

So that’s it for today!
