까라면 깠지 까라면 까! Someone has told me this expression basically means that just do what you are told to However, something keeps bothering me because the verb 까다, having so many different meanings associated with that, seems to me none of them fit this phrase well at all There are well over a dozen slangs that take on it. Perhaps some natives could help out here. What is the original meaning of 까다 used in this phrase?

까다 in this phrase means "껍질 따위를 벗기다. (peel, hull, shell)" It is a slang from Korean army. The full version is 고참이 밤송이를 머리/*로 까라면 깐다. Even if a veteran orders to shell chestnut bur with your head/*, just do it.
