안녕하세요! Welcome back to TalkToMeInKorean.com! You have learned A LOT about verbs so far! You can now conjugate Korean verbs into many different forms! Great job so far everyone, and today we would like to introduce an exception in the Korean verb rules, which is called the “ㅂ irregular”. Well, it is not as difficult as it sounds. Listen in to find out more!



Thank you for studying with us!

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.

    Hello, I would like to know about the 고맙다
    verb, why does it become 고마워요?

      Maybe 고맙다 is an exception… :)

    • Anna Le

      If the vowel before is NOT 오: ㅂ changes to 우
      And because you conjugate it to present tense you add 어요 which then becomes 워요 :-)

    ㅂ 불규칙이 안 어려워요! 아마 한국어 불규칙이 ‘규칙’이에요. ^ ^ 영어 불규칙은 및여요. “웨 이럮해요?” “그냥…” 이 렜선을 준비 했서 너무 감사합니다! :D
