When you say in American English that something costs an arm and a leg, it means that the price is very, very high. 미국 사람들이 알아듣기는 하지만 격식있는 표현은 아닙니다. 공식적인 자리에서는 피하는 게 좋겠습니다. If you use this phrase, everyone in the United States will understand you. But this is an informal phrase, so don’t use it in a business setting.
