What are some filler words used in Korean conversations? What are some words or expressions that Korean speaker words during a conversation if they're pausing to think about what they're going to say. For example, "uhm" or "uh"; or if you're backchanneling (responding while someone else is speaking) like "uh-huh", "I see", "right". Or if you're thinking of something in particular but you can't remember it at that time like, "What is (was) that...?"
