Not being a native speaker - what is the difference "seriously expensive" or "very expensive / extremely expensive"?!

No difference. I've never seen 엄청 translated as seriously haha it sounds very modern. I'd say "extremely expensive."

This set of lessons drives me nuts. The developers try very hard to draw direct correlations between English words and Korean words that don't actually exist.

a few days ago most other questions were changed so that 엄청 translates to 'overly' instead. I think 'seriously' is not even accepted anymore. I guess they missed this one.
