      Hi Karson,
      Saw your whole long list of words… Well, these are very dictionary forms, maybe you can try using online translator (http://translate.google.com.sg/)? Google translator is pretty good for dictionary terms, it has romanization to helps on your pronunciation as well. Just my sharing~ 😉

  • JKris

    • We usually say “여기서 드시고 가세요? 아니면 포장할 거예요?”.

  • Yoona

    How to say
    Have you ate?
    In Korean (very polite way)

    • JooyeonPark

      Do you mean “Have you eaten something? or “Did you eat yet?”
      For the former, “드셔보신 적 있으세요?, and for the latter, “식사하셨어요?”

  • Jenifer

    What does it means when someone says, “Dangjan naga” to a person? What is the Hangul spelling for that? 🙂
