Question on an expression I hear a lot

I hear this a lot. It's usually something along the line of "그거 좀 그렇지" or some variation thereof. From context it seems like it means something vaguely negative, like 'Doing that/ having that is sort of problematic', but to be sure perhaps a native speaker could inform me more fully?

Your guess is correct. Think of English expression "that's kind of..." with a slight grimace. It's close.
