안녕하세요! In this lesson, we are having a look at the word 누구 [nu-gu], which means “who” or “whom”, and how it is changed when used with the subject marking particle 가 [ga]. Listen in to find out how it changes and also to look at some useful sample sentences using the word 누구. If you have any questions, please feel free, as always, to leave us a comment! 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.

    My homework ^0^ :-
    누가 김치 먹었어요 ?!
    이 가방이 누구 샀어요?!!

    But how can i say: for whose this bag ?!
    이것 누구 가방이에요 ?! Will be : who is the bag ?
    Right ?! So how can we say for whom ? Or whose ?

    can i say 누가 사무실 갔어요 for who went to the office? Is it the same for ‘who went to work?’

    What about 누가 사무실 안 갔어요? is that correct? Many thanks,

      I think 누가 사무실에 갔어요?

  • Leanne Thomas

    Is ‘누가 네 사과 먹었어요?’ right? And if so could ‘누구 네 사과 먹었어요?’ Be right as well because in this case 누구 is being used as a noun.
