Originally, 착하다 is ethical expression to show something good or virtue. But this word is extended its meaning to varied fields, for instance something affordable price, hot women…etc.
For instance, 그 여자 얼굴이 착하다 (= Her face is 착하다 ) is wrong grammatically because, the face is not evaluated based on ethics. However, in the view of this slang word, this sentence is possible and it means “Her face is nice and beautiful”.
가격이 참 착하네. ( = 가격이 참 싸네)
