Beeline Language Korean is all about learning the Korean language and culture. You recently learned about many different slang in Korean like 극혐. Did you know that some of the phrases in Korean are the same but have different meanings just depending on the annotation and where to have the accent? Today, you will learn about how to say I’m fine/it’s okay in Korean, and we will investigate this more closely.
How to say I’m Fine/It’s Okay in Korean
This is how to say I am Fine/It’s Okay in Korean: 괜찮아 [gwen chang ah]
Note that you must put ‘yo’ at the end to people who are older than you or whom you are not too familiar with, to make sure you are being respectful and polite
Sample Sentences Using I’m Fine/It’s Okay in Korean

Note that 괜찮아졌데 was used for ‘gotten better’ to show the same meaning.
When the Same Phrase Becomes Something Different
When I mentioned earlier that same exact phrase could show totally different meaning, I mentioned it because 괜찮아 can be one of the examples. When you say 괜찮아, in a response to someone else asking you whether you are fine or not, this will just mean plain ‘I am okay/I am fine’. However, if you put a question mark at the end and put a different annotation to it, ‘괜찮아?’ becomes a question, ‘(Are you) Okay?’
