Bemused
Intended meaning: Amused
Correct meaning: Puzzled, bewildered, confused
First, what does the word “amuse” mean? Amuse means to entertain someone, to make them smile or laugh, to make them happy. If you are amused by something, you want to laugh or smile. Even though it looks very similar to “amused”, the word “bemused” has nothing to do with being amused at all! “Bemused”, in fact, means being puzzled or confused, which is in a negative sense; quite on the other side of being “amused”.

Note: What does the word “Bewildered” mean in English?
Puzzled, confused and indecisive.
