(시)어머니한테 칭찬을 받았을때는 '당연한 말씀입니다' 라고 할수 없습니다. 이때는 '별말씀을요' 또는 '감사합니다' 라고 합니다.

따라서 '당연한 말씀입니다' 라고 하라는 것은 장난(joke) 하는 말로 보입니다.


It could be interpreted either way, depending on the context and/or the tone of the person who spoke first in the dialog:

  1. (with sarcasm): "Yeah, whatever...", "Aren't you so smart!", etc
  2. (w/o sarcasm): "You're so right! I haven't thought of it." or something to that effect

당연한 말씀이시네요 means it is a natural thing to say. You can't say 당연한 말씀이시네요 to 어머니. Because it looks rude and impolite you can say 감사합니다, 별말씀을요 or 천만해요.
