In this TTMIK lesson, we will introduce the verb ending -(으/느)ㄴ 데다가. By adding this ending to a verb stem, you will be able to say “In addition to -verb-…” or “On top of -verb-…”, allowing you to construct sentences such as “In addition to being smart, Kyunghwa is also really pretty” or “Hyunwoo is an author on top of being a business owner also”. With this verb ending, the possibilities are endless and your Korean sentences will sound much more fluent. Thanks for studying with us!
