In this lesson, we are going to look at another way of talking about a future action or state ; -(으)려고 하다 It might seem like there are just way more types of future tenses in Korean than necessary, but they all serve their specific purpose, so they will all come in handy when you need to say certain things in some specific situations. 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!
