    왜하필 is not just asking for a reason but it emphasizes the very fact that out of all sorts of scenarios (against all odds) something is happening to you. for example, you call in sick at work then you go shopping in the mall out of the blue your boss bumps into you face-to-face. Then you could have said to yourself "왜하필 이런재수 있을걸?"
