    Hello TTMIK …

    Not the right place to post but I’m on the brink of giving up because I don’t know if you are still testing the payment options still or have you just given up ??

    Please reply

    How would you express a pain in the chest without creating a misunderstanding, then? :D

  • BBNB

    Can I ask question out of the topic here??
    I’m just confused about using this word cuz I’ve seen both of them from native korean speakers.

    밥을 많이 먹였기 때문에 VS 밥을 많이 먹었기 때문에

    Which one is best correct? Thank you so much ssn!!!

    • Michael Doyle

      Hey BBNB,

      The first one is using 먹이다 which means to feed and the second is using 먹다 which means to eat.

      So I think they can both be correct it would depend on what you’re trying to say.

      강아지에게 밥을 많이 먹였기 때문에 죽었다
      Because I fed the dog too much it died

      내가 밥을 많이 먹었기 때문에 살쪘다
      Because I ate too much I gained weight
