Download Available

In this lesson, you can learn how to say that you have something or that something exists in Korean. The expression 있어요 [i-sseo-yo] can mean both “have” and “exist” and the opposite expression, 없어요 [eop-seo-yo] can mean both “don’t have” and “don’t exist.” Listen to the lesson to find out how to use them in real-life context. And as always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask us in the comment for this lesson! 감사합니다.



You can download a free PDF for this lesson here, or if you want to study with our TalkToMeInKorean textbooks, you can get them here. And after you learn the basics, try writing your own Korean sentences and get corrections from native speakers through HaruKorean, our 1:1 correction service.

    안녕하세요. :)
    TTMIK 정말 재미있어요.
    But I have a question, if I want to say “I really like TTMIK”, do I say:
    “저는 TTMIK 너무 좋아요.” or “저는 TTMIK 너무 좋아해요.” ?
    감사합니다 for the lesson. :)

    • Seokjin Jin

      You can use both. :) Let me rewrite them with particles.
      저는 TTMIK 너무 좋아요.

      - 저는 TTMIK이 너무 좋아요.

      저는 TTMIK 너무 좋아해요.
      - 저는 TTMIK을 너무 좋아해요.
