누구 who 
무엇 (often > )what 
어디where 
   
These words are pronouns. They need particles to be specified for their functions, such as subject, object, adverbial, etc. Although we have not discussed it in detail, let us learn -and -, object markers. -is used when there is a final consonant (patch'im) preceding; whereas is for elsewhere.  Note that 어디 (where) is also a noun (pronoun), while "where" in English is not. 
sub. obj.
what무엇이 (= 뭐가 ) 무엇을 (=뭐를)
who누구가 (>누가)누구를
where어디가 어디를

 
E.g.
무엇이 어려워요? What is difficult?
누가 와요? Who is coming?
어디가 아파요?lit. Where is hurting? (Which part of your body is hurting?)
무엇을 배워요? What do you learn?
누구를 만나요? Whom are you meeting?
어디를 때려요? Where do I hit?

 
For similar reasons, -is needed after 어디 in the above dialogues.   -is a marker that functions like the preposition ('in' or 'to') in English, though they are placed after the noun they work with.
<English><Korean>
in Seoul=서울   (Seoul + in)
