간 떨어지다 – Korean Idioms #5
3 Speed Only
- 간 떨어지다: really really startled.
- Because 간 here means the liver in your body, somebody was curious that the liver really drops(떨어지다) or moves when he or she is startled. It was tested in a TV show and there's no movement at all.
- So you don't have to worry about your liver when you are startled.
