The expression “괜찮아요” is used in everyday Korean conversations and is most commonly translated to English as “it’s okay” or “I’m okay.” Depending on the context of the sentence, 괜찮아요 can have various meanings beyond just “okay.”
Let’s break down 괜찮아요.
괜찮아요 comes from a much longer sentence that does not necessarily make sense in its entirety.
괜하다 = to be pointless; to be meaningless (This word is almost never used by itself like this.)
괜하지 않다 --> 괜치 않다 --> 괜찮다 = It’s okay.
Present tense = 괜찮아요
Past tense = 괜찮았어요
Future tense = 괜찮을 거예요
