천만에요 (cheonmaneyo)

  1. (after receiving thanks, dated) you're welcome!

Usage notes[edit]

This is normally used as the translation of "you're welcome" in English but is not common now. However, one can say "It's nothing," or 괜찮아요 (gwaenchanayo, it's okay), 아니에요 (anieyo, "don't mention it"), (ne, yes; it's all right, you're welcome), or rarely 별 말씀을요 (byeol malsseumeuryo) in general.
