Hi, I’m Young.
it’s my second time to leave a message here.
Since I have a question, I’m leaving a message.
When you taught the meaning of “paid off”, you explained it means “~한 보람이있다.”
I think It’s kind of confusing.
So, do you mean it’s something like rewarding?
Before I took your lecture, if there is a sentence like “The business really paid off!”
I thought it means “The business was successful.
I mean I thought it in Korean “성과를 거뒀다, 성공했다, 성공적이었다 like that.”
I think it’s a little bit different from “rewarding”.
Of course, when something is finished successfully, we could say it was rewarding to do sth.
But I would just like to know the real meaning in English.
So, I’m just asking you.
If you don’t mind, please let me know what it means exactly.

I’ve been enjoying your lectures and thank you so much!
