/kreo/

A lot of international students come into our copy room at work in the music building, and I was wondering what a particular word meant in Korean. I keep hearing something like /kreo/, /okreo/, or /krejo/ in response to what the other person is saying. It sounds like it might be an affirmation of some kind. Not sure. Or a question. Anyone know what the word might be?

After some searching, I know -yo is an ending used for informal polite speech.

It's definitely not Spanish creo, but it sounds like that. I might not be hearing the entire word or words.
