    괜시리 is a wrong use of 괜스레 according to the dictionary, but I think it also good, not just the standard language. Anyway, 괜스레 means ' no reason or no substance' . For example 괜스레 남의 길에 나서고 싶지 않다.( I don't want to meddle in other people's affairs for no reason)

    특별한 이유 means ' a special reason' , For instance 특별한 이유없이 그가 약해지고 있어요(Without any special reason, he's growing weak)
