Can someone help me with this translation?
Hii
I read this in webtoon and i'm not sure what does it mean

아주 물 만났지

Is it the right translation: I want to confront them
The context is about people gossiping someone.

Thank you

No, it doesn't mean that.

아주 물 만났지 = They were really like a fish in water = They were in the best of condition / circumstances.

물(을) 만나다 is literally "meet the water". It is related to the well known expression 물 만난 고기 (a fish in the water), which means someone is in the top form or has the best opportunity with nothing getting in their way.

If you have a friend who likes to gossip and she meets two other friends who are very talkative, then you can say 걔는 아주 물 만났지 or 걔는 이제 물 만난 고기다 as she can gossip all she wants with them.
