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.

    누가 십에 가요? [Who whent to home? (¿Quién llego a casa?)]
    its like that? hahaUu ㅠㅠ

    • JooyeonPark

      Who went to home? = 누가 집에 갔어요?
      Because 가요 is a present form and the past form is 갔어요.
      Hope this helps! :)

  • Miss 태양

    So most of the time 누가 is more used than 누구? Since when people ask questions about ‘who?’ is mostly to ask ‘who did this?’, ‘who is this?’
    So in what other situations would 누구 be used apart from 누구예요?/누구새요?

  • Harun

    how about this??
    어제누가 궁부했어요? (who studied yesterday?)

  • Michonne

    누가 집 에 서 일 해 요?
    Is this how you say: Who works from home? or Who works at home?

  • Sevde Nihal

    누가 주스를 마셨어요 ? Who drank the juice ?
    이것 누가 사고 싶어요 ? Who wants to buy it ?
