안녕하세요! In our previous lessons, we have learned how to make noun groups in various tenses. In this lesson, we are going to look at how to say “I think” or “it looks like” in Korean using those noun groups, including the future tense. We talked about this in Level 3 Lesson 9 regarding the present tense, so if you want to go review, please click here.

Be sure to check the PDF for the correct spelling of the expressions and if you have any questions, please feel free to leave us comments!

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.

    Why is it spelled 좋은 instead of 좋는? Isn’t 좋은 the past tense form?? Same with 뭐인, why not 뭐이는 if it’s present tense?

    • Declan Mayer

      They are adjectives and follow the -(으)ㄴ form.

    I’m a little bit confused on how to conjugate “이다” using this form. Is it considered an adjective? Meaning that “는” can not be used on it? And if that is so, how do you differentiate between past and present tense with “이다”?

    내가 오늘 서명한 신청이는 것 같아. = I think this is the application I signed today.

    Is this correct? 감사합니다 !

    Hello. I’m a bit confused. I would like to title a section on my blog using the translation of “what I think” in hangul because it’s a section about Kpop MV reviews. Which tense would be correct?
