What does "괜시리" mean? I noticed it in songs like "물고기", "애인이 돼 주길 바래요", and "Love Light". I've looked it up in dictionaries, but there is no definition available. I'd really appreciate your assistance ^^

It should be "괜스레", but "괜시리" is also often used as well. It can mean "without any reason, somehow" \^o^/

괜시리 (non-standard word. But some Koreans use it) = 괜히 = in vain; unnecessarily.
