    When there's smoke, there's fire

    I have thought this is a Korean saying, but looking it up in the dictionary, I think it comes from English or the both cultures have had the same expression. So does it mean "Without any cause, there's no result."?

    ex)When there's smoke, there's fire = There's no smoke without fire.
